Recently in room 302 there has been a lot of nostalgia for the early 2000s. Following a night in which we looked up every Now! CD and reminisced about our favorites, we discovered a mutual love: Nick and Jessica, the Newlyweds (that have been divorced for 5 years now).

For those of you who don’t know, Jessica Simpson was a budding starlet when she appeared as the opening act for 98 Degrees, the third most popular boy band of the time, that featured Nick Lachey. The two developed a romance, and after four years of sex-less dating (that’s right folks, Jessica was a virgin until she tied the knot!), the two wed. Eager to document their marriage, MTV quickly signed them up for one of the best reality TV shows ever created: Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica.

Newlyweds ignited a flame that spread like wildfire throughout the country. It showcased their unmatched vocal talents, as well as their lavish lifestyle. One of the most memorable moments on the show is when Jess is confused by Chicken of the Sea tuna, thinking that it is chicken. Kelly and I give major kudos to Nick for putting up with Jess’s classic ditzy-ness. They were a dynamic duo that found their way into America’s heart.

To end this post, I’m going to leave you with a few gems:

This is Nick’s single about his marriage to Jess and also the theme song to the show.

Steaming hot! Jess sings about her sexual adventures with Nick after they got married. His role in the video: make out with her under a waterfall.

I am not ashamed to say that I love this song. Nick’s breakup ballad touches our souls. The video also features Vanessa Minnillo, his on-and-off-again girlfriend since the divorce. It should be noted that Kelly has a fierce hatred for Nick and Vanessa, and that she just made this statement in reference to the photo montage from “This I Swear”: “I havn’t seen either of them as happy as they were since they were together.” Too true…


I have been at home in beautiful Colorado for 10 days and I’ll return to Minnesota again in a short 5 days. It’s no secret that I have big love for my state. I want to share what I love about Colorado and what I didn’t realize I would miss until I left:

First and foremost,

THE SUN! Colorado prides itself on 300 days of sunshine per year.

People who wear cowboy hats. I didn’t think I’d miss this one, but turns out I sure did!

Salsa. Speaking of which…

GOOD Mexican food!!! I heard a quotation the other day where someone said “I’m from Colorado, which means I’m basically half Mexican.” As bad as it may seem, it’s true enough. Everyone from Minnesota/the rest of the country should come visit to taste what they’re missing!

That view. Yes, folks, that’s exactly what I see every day. I can’t get enough of it!

Well, that is enough touting for one post. I gotz 2 rep tha 303 cuz I gotz mad respect, yo!!
