Yeah for Friends!

I have been very proactive lately in trying to make more friends and do fun things, and it has worked! For the past few months, we have had something to do every weekend night! From dinner parties with these fun people, to lunch dates with this cute girl (who you may recognize from the Proactive commercials, although I have never seen her skin with one zit), to girl’s nights with this new friend, Super Bowl parties with these old friends, game nights, dinner dates and Oscar parties with these new favorites, to late nights at Spark with friends and front row seats to the Jazz game with friends, our weekends have been busy and fun, finally!

On Friday night we went to this posh little place called Spark. The food is amazing, and the drinks even better. I ordered a Shirley Temple that came with cotton candy on top.


And for dessert:



Last night, our friends Jeff and Cristi invited us to the Jazz game. They have front row season tickets, right next to the Jazz players. Thank you so much Jeff and Cristi for inviting us. Never in our lifetime would we be able to score tickets like these.

Now, I was a little guilty going to the game given the current situation with the Jazz and the Suns. I still bleed purple and orange, but this was an experience of a lifetime. It was so cool to see NBA players that close up. I could literally touch them. I thought about tripping them a few times when they would go into the game, but Mac asked me not to. So you know that powder stuff that the players put on their hands before they go into the game? Freaking Carlos Boozer kept slapping his hands and getting powder in my eyes. I have always thought that Jerry Sloan is kind of a jerk, based on press conferences I have seen him conduct, and let me tell you, his potty mouth matches my assumptions.

I was in awe sitting on the front row. I asked the people sitting behind us if they could take a picture of Mac and I, and they looked at me like I was stupid. I later found out that it was Larry Miller's family who I asked. No wonder they thought I was weird.



I always wondered what was behind the mysterious windows at the back of the nose bleed section, and last night I found out, it's this:

A lot of yummy food for those who hold the good tickets.

Here are some pictures from a front-row view (I took some of these from your blog, Cristi...hope you don't mind):














Oh, and see this little towel that Carlos Boozer has around his neck:


I may have jacked it...and it might be on sale for $75 on KSL as I type:

If you were wondering if Carlos Boozer sweats, he does. A lot. It's gross.

The players butts kept getting in my face when they checked the ball in the game, a perfect photo opt:




What Mac? It's embarrassing when I take pictures of the players' butts in front of Larry Miller's family, and while the camera is on the players? Whatev.

At the end of the game, when confetti came down, I saved a purple and orange piece in honor of the Suns.



Oh, and don't worry Leandro, I still want you to come and be a part of mine and Mac's marriage (Mac, close your eyes). And don't worry, when I get frightened that some scary man is going to come in my house at night and kill me, this is still the face that pops into my head :



Thanks so much guys, we had such a fun time.




So in conclusion, yeah for friends!

Hi Kelly, I'm so glad that you and Mac are soooo popular and busy! Yeah:) Enjoy it and have a blast!

O.K. so I gotta tell you that my brother/brother-in-law, Brent has always, always been a die hard Suns fan, oh and a Celtics fan(I don't know why on that one) but his wife is a die hard Jazz fan and they live in Utah so now Brent's kind of adopted the Jazz as well. I'm telling you they are the biggest sports nuts and they would have been so so jealous of you and those tickets. I'm so glad that you had such a wonderful time!

Take Care and Keep Having a Great Time!

WOW!! THat is so cool! And I love how you totally weren't shy to point that camera right at the guy's butts! Very funny!!

I've seen Spark, maybe I'll have to check it out sometime. We really should get together at some point. You sound kind of busy though! We really never know what we're doing until the last minute. :)

Mac and Kelly,

That are some awsome seats!!! I am in the opposite situation, I am a Jazz fan living in Phoenix, although the Suns have become my second favorite team and I cheer for them as long as they aren't playing the Jazz. Thanks for sharing.

Jeff

Awesome! How fun! You seriously crack me up!!!

Way to keep the Sun's spirit alive! I think my love of Raja Bell is similar to your love of Leandro (Yes, I may still be in mourning that they traded him...).
