Have you ever acted a certain way or done something that you think you should apologize for or just maybe clarify a bit. But when you do the other person questions your reasoning for it because they weren't offended or bothered in anyway and then you feel like you shouldn't have said anything at all or even given it a second thought. Then that makes you feel like if you were a super hero your name would be Captain Awkward Text. Yeah that's make it even more complicated, I did it in a text message. Awesome.

Here is the reason why:

1976, due to public controversy surrounding a particular red food coloring, red M&M'S® Chocolate Candies were removed from the traditional color mix.

1971, a Russian study linked cancer to Red No. 2, and consumerists in the U.S. stepped up pressure on the FDA to ban the dye.

1987, red was returned to the traditional M&M'S® color mix due to overwhelming request from consumers.

Sure, it's a different dye but I still don't trust em...epecially the Valentine's or Christmas bags. Yikes.

Patrice, Steve, and I headed out on a roadtrip to LA for the Easter/Spring Break/whatever weekend.
2:20AM departure time from Provo. Arrive in Vegas to meet London Mike from Baltimore who was there for business. We slept from 7-9:30AM at the Palazzo room 9-833. Gorgeous. Woke up to swim and tour the hotel. Traveled on to Santa Ana, CA for little sister's Lacrosse game. Later that night it was off to West Hollywood to meet Dory for a party at Republic (happens every Friday and they're amazing).
Saturday we drove to Balboa Pier where we rode bikes at the beach, ate some cool treats, watched a bit of rugby, and ended the night with a bonfire.
Pacific Amphitheater was the setting for a sunny Easter service with live music and dance with my Biola U friend Peter. A quick stop for some ham with the fam and we were back on the road again to Utah while making stops at In n Out and Jack in the Box of course.
I'd give the trip a V for very, very, very entertaining.

I've always been a pushover for boys with blue or light colored eyes. Only once...and it just happened this January...have I looked into the eyes of a dude with brown peeps and been taken back by how ridiculously good-looking they appeared to me. However, for some reason, the goggle tan line eyes are so hot right now. It all started with the shots from the 2007 Warren Miller's Playground film I saw like three times. I seems strange.

It was St. Patrick's Day and what better way to celebrate than a night on the town with my girlfriends exploiting boys. So we set out on a mean green kissing scavenger hunt. These are just a few of the things we found on our list...

My hair has been less brown (I'll never admit to having blonde hair for some reason) for awhile and I'm a little tired of the upkeep so I decided to go back to brown. Here's my last photo with light and first with brown.

The weather was so nice yesterday I decided to go for a hike up Rock Canyon. It was just me and Beyonce (my ipod) headed up the trail. But I made it a solo journey after about two songs because I realized that when I'm out with nature I like to listen to and enjoy nature so the poder went off. Anyway, I started hiking up the trail even though it was totally covered in snow still. I went the farthest I can ever remember going up this canyon in all my times of trekking up it. After about 2 hours I realized I hate hiking. So I turned around and ran the whole way down. I really detest running in the rain because I don't like to get wet unless I want to, but I L-O-V-E running in the snow because it makes me feel like Rocky (I just forgot to punch my fist when I got to the parking lot).

I've decided it's time to admit it. I'm addicted to ranch dressing. And while it is a tasty habit, I'm not sure it's a totally healthy habit (out of 140 calories per serving, 130 are from fat). We had steak for dinner the other night and I noticed the steak sauce bottle was empty. What'd I do? Grabbed the ranch dressing. I like steak...I like ranch dressing...why not combine the two?! Gosh that sounds gross to me now. Too bad it's sooo delicious.

So my talk in church three weeks ago was about perfecting the saints...I spoke about sharing your testimony through the words you speak, the example you set, and the way you live your life. Going to Ireland was such a fun holiday for me and Jenny because we met so many amazing people from all over the world (So 2 mormon girls walk into a pub...). The people all around us offered us drinks all night and when I said I'd take pineapple juice over guinness it got most asking questions. My friend Marc sent me this note:

'deanna your a sweet lovely lass. ive just got back from our weekly works get together and ive been talking to all the boys about our trip.its funny because i told everyone about you being a mormen the other day and today kirean who by the way is one of the more inquisitive members of the group took it upon himself to google it. So picture this a bunch of lads all the way from england sat around talking about your religion. bearing in mind on an average day the conversation dont get past more than motors sports and women. Suddenly we find ourselves deep in a converstion about the usa, deanna, salt lake city and mormen life. . so please be proud that even though you sit all those miles away from us you managed to keep a bunch of lads talking for a good while. least you know we think of you.'

Jenny and I didn't do anything but be ourselves. And I guess that's good enough most of the time. It just makes me realize that people are watching all the time and I need to be all that I can be...always. (Read this funny story about my little nephew saying "what the hell!")It's great to share what we believe and who we are. Life is sweet. Love you all.

World Superpipe Championship event Park City, UT highlights:
rock star parking spots in the parking lot, sharing snow pants, hiking up to the event, free cliff bars and gooey squares, photos with athletes, playing human snowboards, friends skiing with beer, snowball wars on innocent bystanders just wanting to get down the mountain, and making the Park City Mountain Resort picture of the day (see previous post).


What would you do to get your photo taken?

HOW MUCH IS THAT DOGGY... the Watson house? Two nights ago the moms told me she started receiving calls nonstop from 7pm to around 11:30pm about an ad on for three dogs for sale that somehow had her number listed as reference. Ohmigosh this got me laughing. So the next day, I did my duty as her daughter and had other people call about the dogs at her home and work. AMAZING! I answered a few calls at the house, but the best was when Jenny Baum answered one and said, "Oh you're calling about the dog? Well, it died! Ok Thanks."
I think this prank was even better than the time my brother Jeff and I changed her AOL profile status to 'seperated and lonely' since my dad was away working at various airports and a few days later she comes up and says to me, "I don't know why but men keep sending me dirty emails with their photos saying they want to meet me." Oh God bless the cello man. Or the time we changed her profile pic to a photo of Beyonce and it took her a month to figure out how to change it back. Love you moms.

That's not a type-o above. People keep telling me the weather wants to turn to Spring so bad, but I feel like we have a few storms left. Plus I'm not ready for my bathing suit...I still have my winter coat on. Gosh. So I need your help. Next time you see me with that third piece of pizza in my mouth, tell me to be a lady and put it down. Then take me for a run. I beg you.
