Eclipse. Was. EPIC. I hear the second time you see it, at a normal hour and when you aren’t loaded up on sugar and caffeine to stay awake, it just doesn’t have as much power, but I refuse to believe it. The EPIC night started off by eating at El Gillo Giro, my new favorite […]

Upcoming Road Trip

Can’t wait for the road trip with T.J., Josh, and Lacey to Albuquerque this weekend for Dustin’s wedding!  T.J. keeps calling it “The Armpit of America.”  All I know is that it’s far away from Provo, so it’s gonna be awesome.

Big Girls [do] Cry

I am very particular about the way I wash, dry, fold, and hang my clothes. I am a loyalist to Tide-original scent.  It costs an arm and a leg, but it’s worth every scent because your clothes always smell like fresh cotton laundry and are as clean as the day you bought them. I obsessed […]

A String Quartet Playing Classy-cal Music

If you are at work today and need a pick-me-up, this might do the trick. Quotes from The Office- “New Boss” Dwight Schrute: Oh here’s one, a string quartet playing classical music. Michael Scott: You know that’s good, but that’s not classy. I need something classy, like the opening of a car dealership. Jim Halpert: […]

New Job: Typer? Typist? Typing Woman?

THIS JUST IN… I was just asked if I would be interested in listening to a WW2 Veteran tell stories about his life and the war, then typing everything up for him and his wife.  He is 98 years old and my first assignment is to have him fill in the gaps of a WW2 […]

Crunchy, Salty, Sweet

You know Brian Regan’s stand up routine when he yells: How do I get this goodness in me?! That is how I currently am feeling about the New! Pretzel M&M’s {Crunchy, Salty, Sweet Chocolate Candies}. If you haven’t tried them, go buy them immediately, or at least grab a bag the next time you run […]

Cheeseburger Pie

My mom gave me this talk about how I need to cut fats out of my diet so I stay trim and am not at risk for certain diseases and health problems.  So, I have been trying my hardest to do so, although this weekend probably put me closer to a heart attack considering it […]

“Lines may divide us, but hope will unite us”

A couple of years ago, I spent the 4th of July in Washington D.C.  As I walked through the different memorials, specifically the Korean War Memorial, I finally realized what 4th of July was really about. We live in an incredible country.  I know it has its problems, but we are so blessed to live […]

The Phoenix

My parents held a reception for T.J. and I in Cincinnati.  It was at The Phoenix, downtown, on June 4th.  The reception was absolutely beautiful, yet simple.  It was a great way to share the excitement and celebrate with my close friends and family. If you would like to see more photos of the reception, […]

The Great Wave

I want to start off this post by saying that I love art.  But I know next to nothing about it.  So, other than the facts I have gathered from Wikipedia, my critiques and evaluations of this piece have no validity.  They simply are my thoughts. The Great Wave off Kanagawa, by Katsushika Hokusai, is […]
