True Love

Diet coke gives me comfort and makes me happy. I’m sure that any of you DC drinkers can appreciate my feelings...! Here’s to 3 out of the 4 best times of my day! CHEERS!

1. Diet ok AM

2. Diet coke Lunch

3. Diet coke pm

4. Seeing Dave

Ps…saw twilight last night.. LOVED IT…LOVED IT…LOVED IT…could not believe how much I loved it…felt like a 12 year old girl J I thought I’d like it just ok…but let me say it again…LOVED IT

(I listened to the first book when it very first came out before all the excitement and I really liked it…I’m not a reader so I didn’t ever start the other ones, I just had my sisters tell me what happened…anyhow …I thought it was so great! I did not love who they picked for Edward while watching the previews…but after seeing the movie….wo baby…..I HOPE I GET BIT!



What The Heck In The World?!!

It’s hard to believe that not working for one month has become detrimental to my mental/emotional state. I thought I’d be able to jump back into the swing of things with ease…..WO baby was I WA rong! Remember when you started your first “real job”… the excitement, the anticipation,…and then out of no where you get hit by a Mac truck, and you have an “AH HA” moment where you realize that you will be working everyday forever and ever?? You begin contemplating suicide when you realize you don’t have a choice....work is what you do...and you are now a slave to the man?
Remember that?........ I do. I remember it like it was yesterday…or maybe even today..…Pit in my stomach, compulsive thoughts about sleep…loss of freedom. Looks like I have to be responsible again.
BOOOOOOOOOO YAAAAAHHH (someone just yelled that in my ear) and it hurt.

Dear Responsibility:
I hate you. You stink. Please leave me alone.
P.S..…I hate your guts


Ideas Please

Don't get me wrong...I love being back in Utah I really do, so this post is in no means me complaining....but I think living away for 2 1/2 years and the fact that I accidental blocked out my life and memories before Dave has caused me not to remember all the fun things that there are to do here in Utah. I know there are plenty of fun things, ya know...things that Utahans do for fun, things that are special to the area...ya know all the fun stuff. I was thinking about it today and all I could come up with was Crystal Hot springs! ha ha funny right? But I always loved that place! So my plea to you is that you will leave a suggestion or two of some of your favorite things to do in this lovely place we call home! In return I'll give you the low down on fun things to do in Portland...what a great swap right!!! I thought so...PRETTY PLEASE give me some ideas...EVERYONE, if you're reading this give me at least one idea!!! Simple, extravagant, relaxing....whatever just help me remember! Tell me what you love to do! thanks!!


count em up

When upon life's billows
You are tempest tossed
When you are discouraged
Thinking all is lost

Are you ever burdened
With a load of care
Does the cross seem heavy
You are called to bear

When you look at others
With their lands and gold
Think that Christ has promised
You His wealth untold

Whether great or small
Do not be discouraged
God is over all

Count your blessings
Name them one by one
Count your blessings
See what God has done
Count your blessings
Name them one by one
Count your many blessings
See what God has done

Life is rough. No matter how big or how small the trials in life may seem...I believe that if you focus on the positive and count your many blessings the load will seem lighter and the day brighter! My dad told me that when he is down or discouraged he repeats the words to this song aloud, and then counts his blessings, naming them one by one. I liked the idea and I thought I'd share it....it's not rocket science or anything new...just a sure fire way to brighten your day!

Kath and Kim

Does anyone else love this show? It cracks me up! I love the outfits, the story line, the cast....love it all! Seriously funny! If you haven't seen it yet, you really should! Check out the trailer below...if that doesn't strike your fancy...check out the entire first episode...and after that if you still don't like it then we probably shouldn't be friends..:) Let me know what ya think!
