Merry Christmas

Dear friends and family,

I was hoping to send out Christmas cards, but I just didn't get to this year. So, here's our electronic version! Thanks to all that sent us yours this year! We love to see what's going on with your family and see your family pictures!

So, a quick update, Heath will be graduating from ASU this upcoming May 2008 with a bachelors degree in Urban Planning and Development. And we're up to our ears in graduate school applications as of now. We're applying to ASU, Portland State, Univ. of Colorado Denver, and Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. With the deadlines quickly approaching, we hope to find out by March where life will be taking us.

Arizona has been good to us. We've made some good friends, love our ward and have had some amazing opportunities through both of our jobs. Heath is still working for West Mesa Community Development and enjoying it. However, we are closing a new chapter in our lives this week, as this Thursday will be my last day with my employer, Sport Court of Arizona. We both feel good about this decision and know it will be a financial hardship, but also know that the Lord will open up windows where doors have closed. I can finally stay home and be with Jace full-time, while also doing freelance work for the Pat Tillman Foundation.

In a few days, Heath and I will be off to Hawaii! My company is sending us there as a big going away present. Needless to say, I was shocked and so excited! We leave in less than a week. Jace has made so many good friends this year through his great preschool group twice a week! He's so sweet, when he says his prayers, he blesses each of his friends by name. He already is an example to me. He has more energy than I can muster! He loves trucks, trains, cooking, playing his guitar and drums, and going outside! He's constantly on the go and I'm constantly trying to find fun things for us to do! I feel so blessed to have this wonderful little boy in my life! Being a mom is the best job and his great big hugs are worth everything! Jace will be 3 years old in May. I can hardly believe how fast time goes. So, who knows where we'll be next year, but we'll keep in touch. We love you all. Hope this holiday season finds you and your family well.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

love, Stacey, Heath and Jace

Happy Halloween



This year the weekend before HALLOWEEN, we were at my parent's house. We were so sad that we missed our Arizona ward's annual block party, but Jace had lots of fun at the chili cook-off/trunk or treat in California! We had so much fun and it's funny how quick kids catch on to getting candy!!!! He was our little MVP this year. I was quite thrilled to find a costume that he happily wore. I suppose this was all preparation for Halloween night, which he loved! He and his friend Elliot, had fun going together but...not at first. Jace was scared of Elliot's Spiderman mask and it took him a while to realize it was his friend behind the mask!

Others are GOLD

There are just some people in your life that you'll know you'll be friends with forever. This was at my best friend's baby shower and I can't tell you how great it was to all get together! I felt right at home. So, this is a shout-out to all those T.O.friends out there, and though we may live in different places, when we get together, it's like nothing has ever changed. I love you guys! I can't believe so much time has passed since high school, and where we all are in our lives. Thanks for your friendship. I think I understood the saying a lot better after this weekend:

Make new friends but keep the old ones..some are
silver and the other
s are gold.

P.S. Even though it looks like it, we truly didn't eat that cake by ourselves :)

Cooking with Cousins

How cute are they in their aprons!!! Sydney, Haley and Jace. I was so excited Jace actually wore it! When I first made it, he wanted nothing to do with it. Now, when he wants to cook or clean the dishes, he asks me to wear the apron!!! I couldn't be happier. They were helping grandma make banana bread! I love how intently they are watching. Jace is so funny, he tries to crack the egg by crushing it in his hands. He doesn't have the chef's touch just yet:) Some of the best parts of the weekend were seeing him interact with his couins and I found so much joy in watching them play together. Imagine what I'll feel like when he has a sibling. I just know he'll be such a good big brother when that day comes.

Thank Heaven for Little Boys

Last weekend, I went home for my best friend's baby shower. While there, I got to see one of my other best friends! I was so excited because we haven't seen eachother for 2 years and I've never seen her little boy. The second I saw Owen, I fell in love! He's so adorable! He and Jace were so cute together and strangely, they look so similar! They both have fair complexions, blue eyes, blond hair and these cute small features. Jace is a year older than him and you can tell, but they could be brothers! Oh, yeah...one more thing....neither of them ever stops! They both keep their mommy's on their toes :) Thank heaven for little boys.

Who's that Spartan...It's Me, it's Me

A few weekends ago, we had our couples Bunko Halloween party! It was quite the event! We had some fun with the Spartan Cheerleaders. Heath is such a good sport. This was pretty low-key compared to other who went all out (you know who you are Dopey :) We had so much fun that night, ate yummy food, spent time with some great friends and won certificates to Coldstone Ice Cream! (Heath's favorite, so that was nice:) The hubbys got a taste of what us girls do on Bunko night and now they can see why it's just so much fun!

YES ON 300

I wanted to post this for all to read. Most of you know that I am very active in political issues and redevelopment in our community. I really enjoy it and take pride in knowing what is going on. Most of us are so busy with our own lives that we don’t take the time to make sure we have the full truth on certain issues and just listen to hearsay. For the last year, I have been active in helping a development called Waveyard come to Mesa. This is a world-class development that does not exist in the world.

First off, for those of you who get scared every time they hear, “tax”, this is the project for you because….. this is what is called a “USER TAX” subsidy. This is not a traditional tax subsidy where the citizens give money to the developer. A User tax allows the city to sell the land for 30 million; Waveyard pays 10 mil up front and pays the remainder off with sales tax. If you do not use the facility, your money or taxes will NOT go to it, which is why it is called a user tax. Second, tourism in this state is Huge; however, not much exists in Mesa to draw tourists, which equals more $$$$$ for our city. Really, there is no reason for out of state or even other cities to come and spend their money in Mesa, which in return pays for important city services.

I have done A LOT of research on this project and have spoken with the developers and city officials numerous times concerning the issue. This is also switching one recreation use (golf) that is tax subsidized by city of Mesa tax payers for multiple recreation uses. It will use a little more than the amount of water the golf course uses right now. Waveyard will have Mesa’s first 4 Star Hotel/Conference Center, also an indoor water park, amphitheater, scuba, wake boarding, U.S. largest wave pool for surfing, kayaking, white river rafting, specialized retain that does not exist in Arizona, offices and residential all in one which makes it a true mix use project.
And I am just stating a few of the rec. uses that will be available. Just think, you could get certified for scuba diving around the corner. It will also have beautiful architecture in a beautiful Mediterranean setting and theme. Not to mention, location location, location!! This will be positioned next to Mesa Riverview, next to two major freeways, and will raise property values in the area and spur redevelopment into our community. This will finally put Mesa on the map, and bring valuable funding to our city.

I know some have family and friends here in Mesa. I hope you will educate yourself on this issue, share it with others in Mesa who you know and VOTE November 6th. Bring the Waveyard to Mesa. Vote YES on 300. If you have any questions, I’d be happy to talk to you or try to address your concerns. They also have two great web sites as resources

P.S. They aren’t tearing down the Riverview Park, and if this does pass, the city will be making improvements to the it with possible amenities such as adding splash zones, tennis courts, walking paths, etc. And the city will be in charge of relocating the softball fields to another place in West Mesa. It has to pass first to go forward with anything.

Turning Hollywood

I know.....I've been non-existent for a week and half...due to our computer being out of commission from a virus and the other from being sooo incredibly busy. But, now we're up and running! We've had some exciting events recently. The first thing is....last weekend Heath and I got to attend the Steve Nash Celebrity Roast Charity Event! For work, I've been working with the Steve Nash Foundation in putting together elements of the event and so they gave me 2 tickets!!! (valued at $3,000) It was quite the night! Right when we walked into Hotel Vally Ho, there was a Red Carpet. Needless to say, I quickly felt under dressed. Then as we proceeded down the carpet, the media lined the left wall...but I didn't have the unique sensation of posing from every angle and flashing a smile with my arm perfectly intertwined in my escort's arm. No....those people had no idea who the heck we were! :)
We got to meet some Suns Players and just enjoy the fun environment. Although, I have to say, we are not high-rollers by any means, and so we did feel a little out of place rubbing elbows with Marcus Banks, (literally...he bumped my shoulder) Shaun Marion, Raja Bell..etc. I worried, of course, from a girl's standpoint what I should wear that night and still today I'm not quite sure I played it up as much as I could've. Seriously...when's the next time I'm going to go to a fancy chic party. I just wasn't willing to spend the money for a new dress. I couldn't believe the food they had there! Wow....it was good! And they had a whole dessert bar that I was all over...chocolate covered strawberries, creme brule, mini fruit tarts, grilled bananas, cheesecake...you get the idea. We also enjoyed the live concert with John Legend. I'd never really heard his music before. And it was especially fun to hear all the funny and embarrassing stories and things about Nash. We had a great time and at the end of the night got a party gift...2 huge bottles of Belvedere Vodka....now....what am I going to do with that????














I think the highlight of the night was meeting Suns Coach Mike D'Antoni. He just stood there and talked with us for a few minutes while the other celebrities just let us take a quick picture. He was truly genuine and I was happy we had that opportunity to meet he and his wife. You notice Heath and I have separate pictures. You have to catch them at the perfect time and if you don't have your camera ready...the opportunity is quickly gone. I was happy I got Raja :) It was certainly a night to remember.

The whole night raised thousands of dollars for the Steve Nash Foundation, which will support educational initiatives in Arizona! What a great cause! Our Sport Court went for a pretty penny, along with other auction items. It's great to see the community and overall support for Nash and all that he does for kids!

It's a Hard Knock Life

I'm spent!! And poor little Jace has been through a lot this week! This has been one of the most taxing weeks so far for me in mommyhood. Just in the last couple days, Jace has managed to put a breath mint up his nose, fall off the couch and land a goose egg in the middle of his forehead, fall down the stairs and scratch his face, and yes, to top it all off....tonight he slipped in the tub and split open his lip! It's only Wednesday! I seriously am tempted to just make him sit on the couch and not move for the next couple days because there's a dark rain cloud over his head! Now, surprisingly enough I was right next to him when all of these things happened and I couldn't even prevent it! I think I just realized that even when you're there, you can't prevent bad things from happening. Plus, this whole week, we haven't seen Heath because of midterms and needless to say, I am exhausted and anxiously awaiting some better days. Whew...what a week...at least conference is this weekend and I can get recharged. :)

Deuce, Deuce


So, this last Monday, Heath and I were able to attend a charity event that I've been helping out with for the last couple months. Part of the event included a silent auction, cocktail appetizers, dinner and live auction. It was actually a really fun night! (I'm pretty sure Heath and I were probably the only ones drinking sprite.)It was especially great to be part of the culminating event-- the Pat Tillman Leadership Award Ceremony. One of the recipients was Deuce Lutui. He actually attended Mesa High, went on to play for USC and now plays for the Cardinals. He's also a member of the church. It was really great to meet him and his wife and hear about the good things they are doing to help others. He was such a great, down to earth guy. Meeting him was the highlight of the night! This is the part of my job that i love! Being involved with something good for the community and giving back. It's so great to work with people that are so generous and humble. They also had a special presentation about Pat Tillman, which was great to see. I never knew much about him before he died, but Heath did. It's so amazing that he gave up so much just to serve our country!!

Not quite a devil yet....

Okay, so those of you who know me, know I LOVE sports. (It's pretty obvious considering I've worked for Sport Court since 2004) I love playing them (esp. tennis, eventhough I'm not that great...but mostly I love watching them.) I think my love for sports began in high school when I started as a Freshman Cheerleader. I seriously loved watching the games from my cheer stool or on the sidelines, and I'm sure a cute quarterback probably had something to do with my initial interest. I got into the games too..probably a little more than most girls. I think it paid off especially because in my job, I need to know about sports because I am constantly working with pro athletes and sport fans and it's quite fun!!

So, this last Saturday, Heath and I went with our friends, Amber and Travis to my first ASU Game! I got amazing tickets from my friend at KTAR for a suite! In Heath's words, this was my first "real" football game! He thinks because BYU didn't have people drinking and smoking and cursing at the refs, it wasn't a "real" football atmosphere. However, I found it totally the same! Everyone around us was passionate about winning, there was the same hot dogs and hamburgers, the same crazed fan that questions every call, and the one section that keeps on cheering no matter what. But nothing ever got out of hand. I expected a lot worse!!! It was fun experiencing the suite, but after the first quarter we went and sat with the crowd, and it was sooo much better to be in all the action and feeling the excitement in the air. There's nothing like it. It's the same with basketball and baseball games, you just can feed off all the energy from the crowd. So, if you haven't already, go experience a football game this year! 'tis the season :)

P.S. I'm still a true blue BYU fan, but the Sundevils are growing on me :)

The Eye of the Beholder

I've never been one to see the miraculous images in FOOD. And although, this is certainly no pancake with the face of virgin mary, it comes close. I have to share this cute story. The other day Jace was eating this piece of CHEESE and after he took a couple bites, he said, look mom, a flag. I thought...right. Then, I looked at it and sure enough there was a flag. He even started waving it. I thought it was so perceptive of him and just reminded me how smart he is getting!

Our Story

Our Love Story...so I was tagged last week by Rachel but I am just getting around to this. So...for those of you who don't already know, our story is quite unconventional.

Where did you meet your husband?
This is quite a tale. We were set up by...umm...mutual family friends, lets say. We grew up our whole lives hearing about eachother's families but never met. We wrote a couple times during his mission but not much. After he got back, we started talking on the phone, and after 3 months, Heath drove up to Utah (BYU) to meet me. So, I guess you could say I met him at my front door.... in a RED sweatshirt that I'll never let him get rid of.

What was the first thing you said to your husband?
I'm not sure. We spent many late nights on the phone. We developed a great friendship before we even dated.

Where was your first date?
We went bowling and dinner at this restaurant called Tucanos.

Where was your first kiss?
Seriously, I know it's cheesy...but on top of a mountain. Spook Hill to be exact, for those of you who know the Mesa area. He went to great lengths to make it memorable.

Did you have a long or short engagement/courtship?
We met in September, dated long distance for 7 months. I moved to Arizona during the summer to live by him and work. Then we got engaged in September and married two months later. November 30th! Coming up on our 5th anniversary.

Where did you get engaged?
He took me to the Scottsdale Hyatt Regency Hotel to walk around the gardens and fountains there. it was gorgeous!!! There was a mini-beach, pools everywhere, waterfalls, fountains, garden and vines draping everywhere. He took me to a small bench near a lake and proposed. Then we sealed it with a romantic gondola ride. It was super romantic and a little surreal.

How was the honeymoon?
I loved it! We went down the California coast from Malibu to Delmar and last to Shelter Island near San Diego. We still talk about it because it was so unbelievable fun. We played tennis, took walks on the beach, went downtown, shopping, sight seeing, included Coronado Island, which was a little eerie. The best part was our rooms were upgraded every time we told them were on our honeymoon! We went to the best Mexican restaurants. Plus...we couldn't beat the weather.


I love reading these stories too. It's always fun thinking back and remembering
how you fell in love with your hubby. I tag Maren, Cyndi, and Jaryn.

Bunko Baby

Last Friday, I went to my first BUNKO group! These girls in my ward put it together and it was sooo much fun! It's totally a game of luck and everyone gets a prize in the end. This was my first! The theme was home decor! How cute is it! I was eyeballing it the second it was revealed because I knew it would fit great with my colors. I was so lucky to get it!!! I put it on the wall that night. :) It was so nice to have a girls night out and just eat and gab and have a good time. Next month is couples Bunko night and we'll be dressing up for the Halloween occasion. I'll be sure to post pictures....:) The costume is still in debate.

Sister to sister we will always be---a couple of nuts off the family tree :) - anonymous






Last weekend, was our Winn Family Girl's Weekend!! We had a blast! Last year, we went to St. George and this year we stayed at Alison's in Hungington Beach. The best part of the whole trip was DISNEYLAND! Ali's friend got us all in for free! And after going back and forth on whether to bring Jace, that made up my mind....when was the next time we could afford Disneyland!!!!! He did so well! I was very impressed. Plus, my mom and sisters helped out so much! Thank you!!!! We also couldn't have picked a better day...there were NO lines. The only line we waited in the whole time was for the new Finding Nemo ride, which was fun for Jace. His favorite rides were the train ride, carousal, Small world, a Bugs Land of Cal.Adventure, and he LOVED the Playhouse Disney live show! (Bear in the Blue House, Pooh, JoJo, & Stanley)

The rest of the trip was filled with the beach, shopping, pedicures, The Office marathon, in-side jokes, yummy food, bonfire, and relaxing!...Oh, and forgot to mention we all got soooo FRIED at the beach on Saturday!!! I had fun with Jace there, but next time, I will be flying solo and chillin with just the girls. :)

P.S. Pictures to come....

Back to School

Jace started Miss Maren's Monkey Preschool again last week and he's already having so much fun and making some great projects. He loves it! The first day took a little warming up, but now he loves going and I think daddy has a harder time than Jace. (he drops him off). He loves his teacher, Miss Maren, who tells us he is quite the crafter. He loves the glue, scissors, & coloring time. They made this flag in honor of Septemeber 11th. We hung it up on the fridge with his other masterpieces and he loves seeing them. He says, look, my pictures. It seems like his vocab is improving every day, which I think he picks up some great habits from his good friend and fellow schoolmate, Elliot. :) 'll be sure to post more of his fun projects so you can share in it with us.

Dance to the Beat of Your Own Drum

Okay, so this is the first of many posts because our lives have been a whirlwind and I'm finding it quite hard to catch everyone up on the last couple weeks, but I'll do my best. These are some recent pictures of our sweet Jace. He can't get enough of music. At first, I thought it was just a phase, but he's clearly shown it's something he loves. I thought this picture was quite appropriate considering Jace definitely marches to the beat of his own drum. He is definitely a spirited child with more energy and personality than you can imagine! He excels at anything he tries....except listening to his mom. We're going through that figuring out how to discipline stage. We had our first trip to the local Peter Piper Pizza place and he did nothing but shoot hoops and run around. He just never stops. His motto seams to be why walk, when you can RUN! He's fast too. I love him so much for who he is can't get enough of his excitement and zest for life.

Jamming Away



To all my fellow foodie bloggers out there...check out this easy recipe for making homemade rasberry jam. My friend Amber helped me make my first batch! A couple simple steps and you've got some yummy jam: Rinse, Blend, Boil, Sweeten, Pour and Seal. She and I have boys the same age and they had a great time playing and watching movies and eating popcorn together while we worked in the kitchen. I couldn't resist the cute picture of them in their chairs.



INGREDIENTS
32 oz. fresh rasberries
1 box pectin
7 cups of sugar
1 tbs of butter
5 Jars (boil lids in water)

First, rinse rasberries, then blend until puree. Pour into pot, add 1 Tbs butter, and pectin, stir frequently until boiling. When it comes to a rolling boil, add all the sugar at once while stirring. Let that come to a rapid boil and then cook for 1 minute. Pour into jars. Seal and tighten. Place under canning steamer for 10 minutes. then, you're done!! Let jam sit for 24 hours before eating :)

P.S. Since I don't have a canning steamer, I'm going to do freezer jam next, which I believe is even easier than this. All this time, I could've been making homemade yumminess.

Baseball Song

I heard this song for the first time this morning on the radio. I loved it!!! I thought it pretty fitting for baseball season...especially for the recent Diamondback/Padres series. Listen to the song to the very end. And then you'll know why I love it. I wish we all still looked at life the way this little boy does. What a great message of seeing the glass half full. So, today, I'm looking for the silver lining. :)

Monday, August 27, 2007

I always knew I was a star!!!





Isn't this fun!! My whole life I've been told I look like Kirsten Dunst or Reese Whitherspoon. Check out your own and see who you could double as!!

I Must Confess

I have a confession to make. Last Saturday night, I fell upon HSM 2 on Disney Channel and I watched it...and liked it! I guess I was late in the game because I just only watched HSM 1 like 2 months ago for the first time. And it wasn't until seeing Hairspray that I realized who Zac Efron was. #2 was pretty cute and they actually have some good songs in there and some that are so ridiculously corny! I do have fleating moments while watching it, that I think to myself, this is so beyond corny, but I love it!

And yes, I am 26 years old and I like a teenie-bopper movie. It's the kind of movie that you secretly want to see, but wait till it's out on TV, so you don't make too big of a deal about it. And then, while flipping through the channels, you see it on and think...hmm...I wonder if it's any good? There's nothing to do but watch it and decide for yourself. Even though your husband is looking up sports on the internet in the same room, you know he is secretly interested in what happens next. But, don't get too excited, the second he recognizes that he's watching, he immediately comments about how cheesy it is and how he can't believe you're watching it. :) Good cover. Gotta love these cheesy films!!!

P.S. I heard that they are filming a Footloose remake with Zac Efron and I'm not sure how I feel about that because nothing could compare to the first -- it's a classic!!!!!! I guess we'll see.

The Joy of Camping

I'm finally getting around to posting some pictures from our recent camping trip! We had such a great time. Jace was in heaven with an unlimited access to dirt, trucks, and running around!! I don't think I took enough pictures of him in the dirt...but I assure you there was plenty of it. While we had some mean dose of badminton, board games, campfire stories, creek trips, truck rides and bugs, we still had a lot of relaxation! I really love camping and had a blast this year especially because Jace could enjoy it so much more! I had a fun time doing the following: starting and finishing a Mary Higgins Clark mystery, cooling off in the water, roasting smores, playing games with my nieces and nephews, playing in the dirt with Jace, sleeping in a tent (truly fun), watching shooting stars, driving through a beautiful forest, seeing a dear in our camp, spending time with Heath!!, and somehow escaping any misquito bites. What more could you ask for?

Sneak Peek


So, here's a sneak peek of the Shade Clothing Fall Line. I can't wait until it's available! I still haven't committed to becoming a Personal Shopper where I would get better discounts, but I'm still considering it! Mark your calendars because I am hosting a Shade Clothing showcase in October....where you can try on the different styles and colors and decide which you can't live without!

October Showcase...more details to come

In the bag

This is one of my favoirte Disney cartoons!!! It's a classic. My family and I all used to dance around while we watched way back in the day. :)

Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day


How many of you remember this book? Well, I lived it today. I went to bed last night hoping that the pain in my back tooth would subside...but it didn't. I woke up with a splitting headache and headed off to the dentist. But, it get's worse. On my way to the dentist, I got pulled over...not for speeding...but for crossing a police barricade (which, by the way was not even marked clearly) And, for me, it was traumatic because of two things: 1) I wasn't driving my own car and 2) I had never been pulled over before. So, after waiting about 40 minutes while the cop wrote 3 other drivers a ticket for doing the same thing I did, I went to my appointment...LATE. After talking to the doctor and some quick x-rays, I figured it was a simple fix. Boy, was I wrong. No, Stacey, you need a root canal...today. GREAT!!! That's just what I had planned for the day. :) I write to you with a half swollen face, an empty stomach because all I can eat is milkshakes and some lingering mouth pain from an emergency root canal. It can only go up from here and it is...now I'm home with my boys, and it's raining! I love the rain. The one thing I again concluded about bad days, is it makes you appreciate the good ones so much more!!!! Happy Days to You!

Hairspray!!!

I loved it!!!! I went and saw Hairspray with a group of girlfriends last night and we had such a great time. You seriously can't help falling in love with Tracy, the main character!! I loved the music and I can't wait to get the soundrack or when I someday can afford an Ipod I can put those songs on there. :) If you haven't seen it, go see it! I seriously didn't stop smiling the whole movie. It puts you in the best mood. I was a little concerned about the John Travolta being a woman thing and surprisingly it didn't really bother me and just added so much to the laughs! After it was over, I wanted to watch it again. But, I'm not surprised. I'm a sucker for musicals!!! So, I decided to list my favorite musicals of all time.
1. Sound of Music
2. West Side Story
3. The Music Man
4. Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
5. Bye Bye Birdie
6. My Fair Lady

Socc it to me...

So, I guess I'm bragging a bit on this but I'm just so proud of Heath. Most of you know that Heath has been interning at a company called West Mesa Community Development for over a year now. It has been a great experience for him and more than that, it has presented some great opportunities for the future. He has made so many great contacts... like Waveyard, city leaders, development groups, Westcor, etc and now this... Last month, Heath was reading through some articles about the MLS (Major League Soccer) considering a stadium in Arizona. He immediately called the contact on the article and presented West Mesa as an idea for a potential location. This developer hadn't even considered any part of Mesa before this. (Side note: Heath's been working on a land-use plan for the new Fiesta District and this was already in his plan) So, anyways, after a meeting that next day, the MLS guy contacted MCC in talking about a joint agreement for a new renovated stadium....and most likely privately funded. So, to make a long story short, Heath talked to a news reporter last week about the potential project and here's the link for the article. Enjoy! They are now looking at multiple locations in Mesa. But, in lieu of the new Fiesta District design, it could become an urban mix-use development! Wouldn't it be great to have that here and bring some life back to this area!

Plus!!! How could I forget....ladies, I guess that means we could go watch David Beckham!!!! Come on...I know you all secretely think he's hot. :)
