we are lucky enough to live right across the street from the most beautiful cemetery. it is so relaxing just to walk through it and look at all the headstones - some are dated in the late 1800's! crazy to think about how long each headstone took to make, most likely by hand.

since there are things going on all the time on campus, we took the opportunity to go to the "Big AGG Concert Series" last saturday night, sponsored by Aggie Radio. bands played from 12 in the afternoon, to 10 at night. everyone there was wearing high waisted jeans, red lipstick, and didn't have their hair done. that's when we knew this was the most hipster event we have ever attended.
have you ever tried deep fried oreos? they are soooo good! (and obviously like... really really healthy) the aggie radio people gave us free popcorn and drinks and some quality hipster entertainment. our favorite one man band (and most anticipated) was shadow puppets. he had previously recorded music onto his iPhone, then had it going while he was singing and playing the guitar. half the time we had no idea what he was saying, but it sounded gnarly.
after two hours of people-hipster-dancing-to-the-hipster-bands-watching, we decided to leave. thank you radio people, we loved your big agg concert series!

we went to our first utah state football game last thursday and it. was. awesome. some of our friends went way early to save seats, so luckily, we were on the third row at the 50 yard line. we totally creamed SUU! (it was especially fun to leave a football game on the winning side because at our high school games, that opportunity was a rare one)
it was also way different from high school football games because where we went, the principal never let us go against the opposing team. we couldn't chant or be disrespectful (which is totally understandable) but i think matters were pushed too far. at USU you can say whatever the heck you want! unsportsmanlike? maybe sometimes. but it was fun to yell a little :)
