New Best Friend!

So Sunday night we finally got to go to the long awaited Celine Dion concert! She was supposed to come in November and postponed because she was sick, but the time finally came and you would never believe it but we were practically front row!!! Our seats said third row but we were on a platform of some sort and were front row on that!! Plus to make the night even more unbeatable Celine walked on and off the stage right in front of us! We were able to quickly shake her hand and say hi.......it was truly surreal and AMAZING! I have never thought of myself of someone who could be easily star struck, cause lets be honest they are all just regular people like the rest of us, but my heart was pounding and I was completely star struck for Celine! And even though my cute hubby thinks that she is kinda weird he was a little in awe of her as well! It was such a cool experience and we felt so lucky to have those seats! Thanks to My Dad and Tamara for the wonderful birthday present! Oh and p.s. my cute rule abiding hubby tried to convince me to not bring my camera in because it said no cameras on our tickets, but it was worth it to me to chance it!!! haha It was for sure worth it because we got great video of her right in front of us! There are two video clips in this post, at the beginning and end.....enjoy!!! We sure did!

This was when she was leaving the arena, its really dark, muffled, and wobbly at the beginning cause my cute hubby was trying to give all the dancers and back up singers high fives....haha but the video gets better when Celine is there!

Serenading the crowdShe was talking to the crowd and was making a funny face at some kid who kept screamingUs in the best seats in the house!!!Love her!!! I barely had to zoom in for this pic, she was literally right in front of usShe was so exciting and fun to watch

This is one of my all time fave songs of hers!!! Plus she sang it in a killer gold dress!

Delightful Day....

Yummy Sugar Cookies for Valentines Day!
I hope everyone had a delightful Valentines Day, we sure did here at the Miller home! We had a busy morning cause I had a Miss Pleasant Grove workshop, yes it's that time of the year again that I get to help out with pageants around the county! I truly enjoy it! I love meeting the girls and all the people involved. It takes me back, and reminds me why I spent 6 years of my life working so hard to go to Miss Utah! The girls are talented, beautiful, and have meaningful platforms! I love the program and love being apart of the Miss PG committee! Anyway, so the loves of my life didn't get their Valentines gifts til I got home around 2. Cupcake got a new few new books, some treats, a Valentines outfit, and a new springtime Elmo coloring book! Daddy got treats, a new C.D., and a massage! I got a new CD, Movie, taken out to a wonderful dinner at Tepanyaki, the sweetest card, and a massage as well! My mom was so wonderful and watched Cupcake so we could go to dinner. We went early and waited only 20 min, which is amazing for Valentines day, we were to full to go do anything else so we headed home and had planned for our friends, Jared and Barb, Jordan and Erin, and Dan and Maddie to come over and watch the All-Star basketball craziness, and play games! I made sugar cookies and my famous caramel popcorn to eat while we played boxers and briefs! We couldn't have asked for a better night! I hope everyone had a chance to tell someone they cared about, how much they love them, and that they were also told! I love you all soooo much and hope you had a lovely day! Sorry to the wives that came that night I didn't get any of your pics!

P.S. For anyone that loves to change there blog background I found a new free site, from my cute friend Melissa's blog, called Delightful Dots.....www.delightfuldots.blogspopt.com

Family Pics - Daddy's Side of the Family

About a month ago we were able to get all of the family together on Daddy's side and had some pics taken by my talented Aunt Stephanie! She is so great and always takes all my pictures for me, we love you Steph and your pictures! We were a little sad because we had planned to take them outside but that specific day when everyone was in town and able to get together to take them, it was like 14 degrees outside, so needless to say we stayed inside. We were hoping for better scenery but you gotta work with what ya got! Stephanie ended up taking like 200 pictures of everyone and every one's individual family! Here are just a few. Literally just a few.
