My dad the rock star

I went to see Phat Daddy play up at Cisceros in Park City last Friday. Tons of fun! Normally my dad's at the back of the stage rockin' the drums, but they decided to switch it up and Perry (who usually plays guitar) played the drums, Mark (the bass player) kicked some serious butt on the guitar, and Matt (the guy in charge of the sound at Cisceros) played the bass. My dad sang lead vocals. It was AWESOME! Mark even used an empty glass as a slide. I've got a pretty talented dad, that's for sure. Here's some pics (All I had was my iPhone camera and the lighting wasn't the best, so sorry for the bad quality):

NieNie on Oprah

A few of you might remember awhile back when I wrote about my favorite blog ever (sorry to all you other bloggers, but there really is no contest...). You might have heard of it; it's called NieNie dialogues. Well she was on Oprah today. You can read about it here:
Seriously, I know this sounds kind of stalkerish, but I love this girl! She has such a passion for life and love for her family and the gospel. What an inspiration! My favorite posts of hers are the ones she writes about her husband. She'll talk about how she'll be watching him water the lawn or something and fall completely in love with him all over again. I suppose after surviving a plane crash together, you cherish each other a lot more. I pulled this picture from her blog:

Do you not just love them? Anyway, if you haven't read it, go check it out. I promise you'll be glad you did.

Happy Birthday Ian! (2009 edition)

Well, here we are again, one year later celebrating my favorite person in the whole world's birthday. I just wanted to tell you all, again, how extremely grateful I am to have such an amazing person in my life. I know everyone says that, but it's really true. I had to laugh the other day as I was going through my old high school notebooks. I found a page where I had described, in perfect detail, my ideal guy. Aside from the fact that this fantasy person had brown curly hair and a British accent (Yes, I really did write that), I described Ian pretty much to a T. So much of what I am today comes from what he's taught me. He's like no one I've ever met before. He has a passion for life that I haven't seen in many other people. He's taught me so much about faith, forgiveness, trust, expression, confidence and happiness. There's definitely more to that list, I just can't think of any more at 11:30 at night. I remember while he was still in the MTC, I wrote him a letter and mentioned that I was struggling big time with Biology. His advice in his reply letter was, "Before you study, say a prayer and read a chapter in the Book of Mormon. Things will be more clear with the help of the spirit." It was such a simple thing, but it made a huge difference. He's helped me put a lot of things like that in perspective and kept me from completely losing it on quite a few occasions. He really does make me want to be the best version of myself, and not only that but makes me believe it's possible. Happy Birthday babe. I'm glad we get to celebrate you being in the world because my life would be a whole lot different (and SO not as wonderful) without you. Love you!

PS I just had to show you all this. The parted hair is pretty much my favorite thing right now. Love it!

Ok, I just need to say this and let it be said

So, I really like facebook. I check it all the time! I have the app on my iPhone so whenever I have a minute or so, I'll log on and see what people are up to. But let me tell you what I really can't stand lately: status updates. I think it's high time we all realize that sometimes some things are better kept to yourself. For instance: "Sometimes it sucks being a girl sometimes..." Seriously? We all know what you're referring to, and quite frankly, we don't wanna know! I'm not sure as to what the motivation for a status update like that is, but let's just sum it up by saying, if it has something to do with a bodily function, it's probably best left off of facebook (or any other public forum for that matter). It's just gross. Secondly, I say let's ditch the negativity too. I know that it is your right to put whatever you want on your status on facebook, but why would you want to be viewed as a negative person all the time? Sympathy? Well, I guarantee that 99% of your friends are going to skim it and skip right over it without giving it a second thought. How about whenever you feel like making a status update talking about how unhappy you are, look for something positive to write instead. I guarantee finding something positive to talk about will be a lot more beneficial than talking about how much life sucks. Just a thought. I understand that everyone needs a minute to vent their frustrations, but don't use a public forum to do it. Call a friend, or go for a walk, anything. I guarantee finding something positive to talk about will be a lot more beneficial than talking about how much life sucks. Just a thought. I don't mean to ruffle any feathers here, I just think we're not doing each other any favors by focusing on the negative all the time.

I'm sure there are going to be a lot of posts like this over the next day or so but I'd just like to take a minute to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation for this country. I'm incredibly grateful to live in a land where I have the opportunity to persue an education in any field I choose. I'm glad that I don't have to walk out of my house in the morning, and worry about stepping on a mine or becoming the victim of a stray bullet. I'm grateful to know that if something were to happen to me or my family, we'd have access to adequate medical care and that the dilemma isn't "Where is my next meal going to come from?" but "What fast food place sounds the least disgusting for lunch today?" Those are just a few examples of the countless blessings we enjoy every day because of where we live. I suppose sometimes it takes a profound event like September 11 for us to experience the fear that some live with every day, and to truly appreciate what we have as a nation. Let's not forget. While I believe some changes are being made in our country, some not necessarily for the better, I still think it's our job to remain patriotic and optimistic. If we lose that, what do we have left? God bless America, and may we all remember to take pride in the opportunity to be a part of it all.

Want some free chocolate?

As the unofficial "candy slut" I feel the need to let you in on this little known secret. I was a little bit skeptical about this at first but it's really free, no-strings-attached candy. Go to and fill out the info and within a couple weeks, they send you a coupon for free chocolate. It really works and you can do it more than once. Enjoy!

You probably wouldn't know it from the looks of me now, but I used to dance in high school. I wouldn't say it was something I was particularly amazing at but I enjoyed it for the most part, and it was a great way to keep in shape (I had such great legs back then, I don't know why I complained about them). I loved my jazz and hip hop classes, but for some reason ballet was always my favorite. I was cleaning some things in my room today and I found my old pointe shoes. I decided I'd put them on, just for the heck of it. Well, that wasn't such a good idea. Ouch! I used to be much stronger... It kinda made me miss dancing though. The thrill and the rush of working so hard at something and then performing it on stage. I wish it was something I worked harder/was better at. One thing's for sure, if I have little girls, they're going to be dancers. No doubt about it.

I realize that skydiving, paracuting, and flying are inherently dangerous activities which may result in my serious injury or even death... BRING IT!

So I can officially cross "skydiving" off my bucket list. That's right, I totally jumped out of a plane flying at 12,500 feet, freefell at 130 MPH and parachuted down to the ground. It was seriously the most amazing thing I've ever done in my life. I'm already ready to do it again. After a looooonnnnngggggg drive up to Ogden (we were stuck in traffic for about an hour, I was ready to murder), we arrived at Ogden Skydiving Center. I was way nervous, but definitely more excited than nervous. We met the check-in lady and she handed us each contracts, where we literally signed our lives away. Since it was my first jump, I rode tandem with an instructor named Sugi. He was pretty cool, and when I asked him how many times he's jumped, he said he'd ballpark it at about 2,000! We got on the plane and rode for about 20 minutes, while the instructors tried to freak us out. As we were taking off, Sugi said, "I'd say we have better than a 50% chance of making it through this alive." I told him I'd take it! They were saying stuff like, "Hmm... what does this do?" or "I'm not sure, I've never done that before." There was a giant florescent Orange sign on the back of my harness that my instructor was kind enough to read to me. It said something to the effect of "even if your parachute is manufactured correctly and everything is executed exactly as it should be, you might still die." I know he was trying to make me nervous, but I really just thought it was way funny. Definitely the most awkward part of the evening was when Sugi said, "Alright, are you ready to get cozy?" He pulled me back so I was right up next to him and literally strapped me to him. He explained that as we jumped out of the plane, I needed to arch my back, put my arms out so they were shaped like a W, and kick my feet back so they were touching his butt. I told him he'd have to buy me dinner first. :) So we got up to 12,500 feet and the little light by the side of the door turned from red to green about as quickly as I went from pretty chill to FREAKING OUT as far as nerves are concerned. I kinda waddled up to the edge of the plane, and crouched down as I was hit with a rush of cold air. I forgot it was supposed to be cold up that high. We jumped (okay, I'll admit it. He pushed me) and immediately did a backflip out of the plane. I can't even attempt to describe to you the rush I felt at that point. It was seriously SO insane! I literally felt like I was flying. It was absolutely amazing! We fell for about a minute before Sugi pulled the 'chute. It was a pretty chill, relaxing ride down from there. We did a few corkscrews and stuff like that, but mostly it was just a slow descent back to the ground. We landed on a little grass strip right next to the runway and I had to just kinda sit there for a second and regain my senses.

I've kind of made skydiving a metaphor in my life. Yeah, it's dangerous and has the potential to kill me, but if I backed out just because of the risks, I would've missed out on the best ride of my life! So let that be a lesson. Take risks, and enjoy the ride!

Until the next big adventure, Peace out!

Best. Picture. Ever

I came across this little beauty while reading Carly's blog. I can't even get over it. Hilarious! I'm so glad I have such a weird family... :)

missing my boy

So we're down to the last 7 months before Ian gets home, I couldn't be more excited, truly. Lately I've been missing moments like these:
Senior Sluff day at Aspen Grove
Senior dinner Dance

September 2007 at Sand Hollow

Graduation day

I never really noticed before how happy I look in those pictures. He seems to bring out the best in me, and that includes making me incredibly happy. I can't wait until I get to walk up and give him a hug for no reason at all, or cuddle up to him when we're watching a movie, or any of those other simple things that I took for granted before. February won't come soon enough. love you babe!

Time for an update

It's been awhile since I've posted anything noteworthy on this blog so I thought I'd take a moment to do so. It hasn't been too much of an eventful month or so but I do have a couple fun pictures to post so I'll just go ahead with that:

Memorial Day weekend:
We packed up and headed to St. George for Memorial Day weekend this year. We decided it'd been a little too long since the whole family had been there. I spent the weekend shopping, well, kinda... I swear everything I tried on made me look 6 months pregnant... It was rather disconcerting... I did manage to find a cute dress to wear to Mel's wedding and Jillian got a new swimsuit, so I suppose we could call it mission accomplished. We also had a really fun Sunday dinner/mini family reunion on Sunday night with lots of good food and fun!

Uncle Dan and Dad munchin' away

Cori Sandwich! (LOVE this picture!)

Love this one too! Grandma and Grandpa Biesinger

Doing what we do best: EATING!!

This side of the table chowin' down! Mmmmm!

Jill and me at the St. George temple

Johnson/Jensen Wedding:
What a fun day! Melissa looked stunning of course, and it was just a great day. I spent a lot of the day setting up for the reception and running around like a crazy person but that's okay. It was so fun to see everyone (including all the friends that came up from St. George, SO fun!). I can't wait for the next wedding!

Newlyweds coming out of the temple

"Second String bridesmaids" as Wendy called us.

Getting ready to take a picture (love crazy candid moments like this) :)

A shout out to Dad

My dad's looking through his scrapbook right now and it's really fun to hear him talk about what was happening in all the pictures. Everything from raising his lambs (who were "just like little puppies") to talking about his dad who died about a year before I was born. I realized I've never really told you about my dad so I thought I'd take the opportunity to do so. My dad's the bomb, seriously. He's one of my biggest supports in life and seriously one of the coolest people I know. He's super talented in anything he attempts. I remember when I had my Subaru and the radiator needed to be replaced, he figured out how to do it on his own with instructions on the internet. He works so hard to support our family and does a great job doing it. Every time I have a problem with anything, he'll always be right there to help me out. He knows EVERYTHING (literally everything, if you have a question, call him. He'll answer it for you) about cars. Mom calls it "mad car disease." I'm so glad to have such a loving supporting pop. Love ya dad!

Dad on his Suzuki VL 1500. Notice the awesome ridin' boots. :)

It's taken far too long for me to post this but it's finally time! Worth the wait right? Saturday nights are shaping up to be rather great lately. Last night, some great family friends of ours took us snowmobiling up in Park City. Their family owns all the land that that Canyon's snow resort is on, and about 20 snowmobiles. It's a great combination. I had so much fun! I'd never been snowmobiling before so I was a little nervous at first but gradually I was able to relax and just have tons of fun. It's so awesome to have such great friends! Thanks guys!

The fam at the top. Well, those of us who went anyway...

Plug your ears... yeah I'm special...

Our awesome friends, Perry and Maria. Love 'em!

Hugging. aw, love! :)

Getting ready to leave. Does Ian not look like a lego guy
to you guys? I think it's hilarious!

My first Jazz game

So, let me tell you why I freakin' LOVE my job! The owner of our store and the Orem store has season tickets to the Jazz, third row, center court. Right where all the action is. Well, this morning he gave the guys and I the tickets to tonight's game! It was tons of fun and I'll probably never be able to go to another Jazz game again because it'll never be the same! We got the VIP treatment, had prime rib for dinner in the VIP lounge, not to mention I got to stare at Kyle Korver from 10 feet away.... He is simply delicious!! The Jazz did end up losing 108-118 (ouch!) but it was still tons of fun! Thanks Steve and Karon for a great night at the game!!

Proof that I was, in fact, on the court (with the blurry guy's head behind me).

one month...

So, it's officially been one month since Ian and I became official. I know, not a really long time but I'm really excited about it. What a great month! I'm so happy to have him in my life (and most days still can't believe I've gotten so lucky!) and I grow more attached to him every single day. Happy Anniversary babe!

Our true personalities... :)

New obsession

Can you believe it? This one's actually not about Ian. I know, right? So weird. Anyway, I was reminded after watching American Idol tonight (I usually don't but it was just on tonight so I did...) how much I freaking love David Cook. His album's gone platinum in three months and I can totally see why! These two songs are probably my faves of the ones I've heard. Maybe American Idol isn't glorified karaoke after all...


Come back to me:

Happy birthday sissy!

Today is March 31 which means, it's little sister's birthday! Yay! She's a whole 19 years old today. That's pretty insane, not gonna lie. Too bad she doesn't answer her phone anymore so I can't even wish her a happy birthday... What a punk! Anyway, Megs I love ya and I hope you had a great day!

I just had to...

My monkey man...

He's my favorite

So, I'm officially bordering obsession with this whole blogging about my boyfriend thing but it's fun and I'm kinda a little bit crazy about him (by kinda a little bit I mean a whole heck of a lot!). Plus, I miss him today so it's my way of... what's the word... getting it out of my system? Yeah, that works. First of all, new pictures! I love Mondays when I get to see new pictures. Most of them are bugs or creatures that look big enough to eat me, but that's okay... This one was pretty cool I thought. Can I just take a minute to tell you how freakin' amazing he is? Seriously, I'm so lucky. Like, "wow I never thought I would be this lucky" lucky. I looked at my facebook page today where it says his name next to the words "In a relationship with" and I couldn't help but be a little bit giddy. :) I really have found the man of my dreams. It's definitely one of those cliche phrases, but it's so true. There's not one thing I would change about him. He's smart, funny, talented, sympathetic, optimistic, ridiculously handsome, and the perfect compliment for me in every way. He takes such good care of me and treats me exactly how I want to be treated, and we don't even live on the same continent! I feel like the past couple years of my life have been a path to find him. Well, more like a path to be where we are now, because in all reality I did find him a couple years ago. I look at the series of events that have transpired, and it's all happened perfectly and led me to him. It's really kind of crazy to think about. I know this is where I'm supposed to be. I have no doubts. It's not the typical definition of success for most people, but neither are we your typical definition of typical people.

Too many creatures

Ok, let me just show you why I could never live in Argentina...


...Gross spider...

...Other gross spider...

...giant grasshopper thing... also Oli (ok, that last part was a joke)

...Huge mantis...

...Other bat...


Yeah, I think I'm quite content to just visit there someday. I'm glad he's having fun though.

Who could resist that face?

The kitty's of course.... ;)

Something new

Boring days at work do this to me. I'm just in the mood to write about nothing. So, if you want to read some boring stuff, keep reading. If not, feel free to mosey on. I won't be offended. So, first bit of news, I'm starting school on March 30! I'm way excited! I know normally I really hate school but I'm pretty excited about it. I guess in a few months when I'm ready for a break I'll have to go back to this post and read about how excited I was. Oh, I didn't say what I was doing... I'm going to be a medical assistant. Eventually I'll be a radiology technician (someone who takes x-rays, performs CT scans, MRIs and ultrasounds) but starting with medical assisting is a good thing to do first because the waiting list to get into the rad tech program is kinda long. So I'll start that in March, then be done in January, which is perfect timing because a certain missionary I know comes home right after that. I'm big enough to admit that going to school then is not a good idea. I will fail. I can assure you. So I'll be working, which I think is perfect. Don't you? It's been really nice to have these last few months off though, I won't lie. I think I might miss it a little bit. But I'm excited to start another chapter and finally get done with stupid school!! I'll keep you updated on all that.

It's official... We're official!!!

Okay, I know this doesn't come as a surprise to most of you, but Ian and I are officially official. I know that's kind of weird to say since he still won't be home for a little while, but that's okay. For those of you who don't know, and just because I love telling it, I'm gonna tell you about us.

Ian and I met for the first time at a dance our junior year (we both knew who the other was before then but we hadn't been officially introduced until then), but we didn't really become good friends until our senior year. It was one of those "overnight" things where we went from hardly knowing each other to texting all day, hanging out as much as we could, etc. I attribute that to his outgoing personality and ability to make me feel comfortable in any situation. We continued to be great friends through the rest of high school, through the summer and we would see each other once or twice a month while I lived in St. George. We had tons of fun going out to eat, talking all night and, of course our favorite, SNOWBOARDING! During that time though, we were never more than friends. He was so fun to be around, funny, smart, handsome and all that great stuff, but I never really saw us being more than just really great friends.
He left on his mission in February of 2008. I wrote a couple letters a week and he did the same, and it was all just a "friend" thing until he got dear johned in June. After that, our letters started to take on a bit of a different tone. It was subtle at first, but intensified as time went on. I was convinced there was no way he felt the same way about me, and the hints he would drop in his letters to me were just him being nice. He thought it was just being on the rebound.

Things continued this way until the end of 2008. We both were liking each other more and more, but neither of us really said anything to each other about it. I was spending time here getting to know his family, sending him more Reese's Peanut butter cups (among other things) than any one person should consume in their entire life, and writing... a lot. He was kicking butt as a missionary in Cordoba, baptizing right and left, while still making time to write to me every once in awhile. Most people insisted we were together and it was hard for me to deny once they saw the shade of red my face would turn when anyone mentioned his name, but we never did more than drop hints about it.

After new year's, things really started to take off. I found myself telling him things that I never really planned on telling him at all, let alone while he was still on his mission. The part that completely surprised me though, was that I didn't care. Better yet, he was doing the same thing. We talked about the future, and our plans, and it became very clear to both of us that we had no intention of being without the other.
So, now we find ourselves here, where I've finally weaseled it out of him. We've made a habit out of asking each other questions whenever we talk, and so I asked him what we were. His reply was, of course, about how he was a homosapien and hoped that the same was true of me.... Funny, but hardly the answer I was looking for, and he knew it too. So I kept going:
"Seriously, what do you think of us as?" I asked him. He replied by informing me that he'd been meaning to ask me something, and was going to wait, but would ask me now if I wanted him to. Oh, and you'd better believe I wanted him to.
"Well, I was going to ask you, if I could have the honor in being your boyfriend," he told me, as my heart literally threatened to beat right out of me! And as you can tell by the story, as well as our relationship statuses on facebook (you know it's official when it's on facebook!) I said yes.

So you might read this and say, "BFD, he's not going to be home for a year, she'll probably be married in that time." First of all, if you're thinking that, don't say it to me. I'll punch you in the face. Secondly, I know this is not what you'd call typical but I don't care, because I am SO happy! Really, I didn't even know it was possible to be this happy. Ian is everything I've ever wanted in a guy. He's smart, he makes me laugh, we share the same interests, he is constantly encouraging me and giving me reason to believe in myself, and any of you that know him would agree, he's just an amazing person in every way. So this might be an interesting year for me, but it's worth it. I've found true happiness, and I'm not letting go.

Happy Valentine's Day

Emphasis on Valentine's. Usually I celebrate Single Awareness Day on February 14 but Ian made it really a great day this year. I was getting ready for work when I heard a knock on the door. I let my brother answer it since he was right by the front door. He came downstairs and said that someone was at the door for me, which confused me because that rarely happens. I went upstairs to find a girl holding a vase full of yellow roses (my favorite). I had a hunch as to who sent them, which was confirmed by the fact that it was addressed to "Cori Jane" (he's the only one that calls me that) and of course, as soon as I read the note, it was obvious. I was seriously freaking out! I didn't even know what to do! I was shaking like crazy but at the same time I was so happy and couldn't quit smiling. It made my whole day! Thanks Ian for making it so amazing! You're the best!

Me being super happy about it.
