Spot the Utahn.

Whilst waiting at the airport for Ronan and Boyd, Asha and I were playing a game of spot the English
 (the flight was originating from London)
You can tell an English man by his skinny legged suit or his stylish shoes, a female by her spunky hairstyle or classy coat.

 Then last night I noticed another look.
 The Utahn.
I was watching a guy on the voice from Provo Utah, Ryan Innes, incredible, gave me the goosies you should check it out.
When the camera snapped his family, excitedly waiting in the wings, I thought HA! you can totally tell they are from Utah.

There used to be these "you know your from Utah" jokes about green jello and nephews being older than uncles but I have been thinking about an updated version. Some of these I have fallen into myself and will regroup.

 You know she's a Utahn when: 

 She has a $200 diaper bag but serves hamburger helper for dinner.

She has several maxi skirts with matching bubble necklace.
She loves to decorate with chevron or even wear it on a maxi skirt.
  ( I do like this color)

 Her handbag doubles as a carrier for her SLR camera she whips out at the park she drove to in her $50,000 minivan that could use a vacuum. Oh now I'm getting specific but I could count more than one of these moments just today.

 She wears an unfinished under shirt under a pretty blouse or flirty sundress.
Sorry ladies but I spot 6 in this picture, not including the ones hiding.

Her hair looks like this for 3 hours a week
but like this for the rest of the week

Any of this familiar?
She has a years supply of fruit snacks and marshmallows (there just always seem to be coupons for those and lets face it, in a disaster a marshmallow can be very handy)

She has a 4 year old  home that's she wants to move from or remodel because white is the new wood.

Man I could go on for hours but I need to dust around my color coordinated candy filled apothecary jars before browsing pinterest to plan my next child's wedding, oops I mean 1st birthday party that'll keep me so busy, I won't have time or money for a date with my husband. Ouch! That one left a mark.

But she probably won't be skiing or riding trax because it's too expensive or too slow or because she has so many kids/ bags to carry and has to be back for kindergarten pick up then carpool then homework then soccer then piano then drive thru dinner then idol then the activity she's in charge of then.......

So what do you think? Do you look like a Utahn?
