I feel a project coming on....

BEST THING I EVER DID

So as you all know...I have cut back on work and it was the BEST THING I EVER DID!

I have been practicing my guitar a TON!!! I actually run to it rather than the piano at times!! It is the perfect release and relaxation for me.







Usually I work a mon, tues wed schedule..but I didnt work monday this week. So I was able to paint furniture, practice guitar, play the piano, go on a 7 mile run and even cook!! (healthy of course) But it was so nice to just relax and have time to do things! I LOVE IT!!

Finally done!!

Proud to announce that I finally finished the chair. I really should get a good picture of it...but I don't have time for that. So here it is. !

THE BEFORE


THE AFTER

YOu know ya work at the hospital when...

You know you work at the hospital when you walk on the elevator and the floor looks like this and you think to yourself, " I am glad that blood is dried up."

NEw Fav Indulgences

SO I thought I would share a few of my new favorite indulgences

1.) ASPEN BREAD..tastes really good and hearty. Can buy 2 loaves at Costco for five bucks verses the ONE at great harvest.


MIMIS Carrot Raisn NUt Bread...I LOVE this bread from MIMIS, I actually CRAVE IT! So I just had to get the recipe. Thanks for recipezar I found it!! AND I was able to make it healthier.


From the first time I tasted this little numbers I LOVED LOVED LOVED THEM!!! THey were my special treat when I felt I deserved a splurge. They are super healthy and amazingly delicious, but not costly. LUCKILY they now have them at COSTCO!! It was a dream come true when I saw them last week. Pretty sure I cried a little out of happiness.


This is my new fav mascara. I have done the original mayballiene, the Max Factor but this one is the BEST. It lasts so much longer than the others. SOMEHOW it doesn't dry out as fast...and there are often LOREAL cupons in the mail.



Lastly I also have fallen victim to this little treat. I take it to work because I know I will burn most o the calories off.

QUote o the day

The quote of the day is brought to you by my good friens APES.

"If I date in the ward I try to keep it on the down low as long as I can. Its like a dog and his fire hydrant. Once he pees on you all the others know you are marked territory and they don't dare come near you."


I laughed so hard as this annology...so funny...so true!

Things I heart

The kidnapping

We had not seen enough of Liz for the week...so we took care of that...my own little a creative manner of course......


video





Sadly however, she saw the camera early and ruined the exact plot but i tried to pull her into the frame after I encompassed her and we got a quick little bit o it on there! I grabbed her with the sheet and Shayla covered her head with the pillowcase. Mor pictures to come when i can find them. Although it wasn't quite as grand as I planned it to be, she did NOT see it coming.It was a grand time and we all got some good "catching up on life" time together.


College Singlehood REunion

Ash called up. She is on o the last of our diein breed of singles let from BYUI. Ot the 12 girls from the top of the A apartments there are only 4 left unmarried and we try to reunion when we can. My aunt was more than generous to offer up her cabin and ATV's for a much needed retreat.

Pictured above is me (with a mullet...now sure where that came from)...Julie Ann and Shayla.


This is my an Ash.....is didn't take long for me to get bored being the back seater...so I made a great game of JOUSTING!!! They didn't see it coming till it was too latle and my branch was buried in Julie anns left buttock.

It was really fun...and we won of course.
Here is a little picture o the cabin Lynnae so generously left me the keys to.



And here is her Table and chairs that fall in love with over and over again every time I see them.


Long story short, we met up, I supplied the cookie dough and housing and entertainment and the rest of the girls just mooched off me. It as a greand old time!! Thanks for coming, Brit, Ash, Ja and Shay!!
