Visiting with Daddy-O

Always good to be back to my roots.

You know you're flying out of a small airport when...

The security line is closed because the one flight that is leaving still has 40 minutes before it leaves.

Oh... and the security comes and finds you in the bathroom, they have your watch that you forgot at the checkpoint.

Hey Parents wanna drink?

Dear PTO parents:

Lots of Info: Grab a drink and your calendar!

That was my opening line of the email I sent to 200 parents. Yeah, it kinda sounds like I'm encouraging ya know, liqueur.

As one who has never drank anything stronger than a Mountain Dew, it's kind of ironic.

No worries I sent the following Addendum:

By Drink - I mean beverage of your choice. I'm not condoning or encouraging adult beverages. Oh my goodness, embarrassing...

Looks like another fun week with the PTO.

Have you ever done this in the mirror?

I am such a girlie girl when it comes to make-up, beauty, etc. I know it drives Josh crazy how much make-up, lotions and potions I've got in my bathroom. I can't help it! I want to smell good, I love how make up can seriously change the way you look. It's funny because at the gym I had this friend Annie, and I swear she didn't even recognize me from when I came in to workout to when I left for the day. I love how it transforms you! You can look glamorous, you can even do make-up to look like you aren't wearing any... It's so much fun to play, It's like painting on a canvas. It's fun for me. I think it all started in college... somehow I started learning the tricks of the trade, and now all I want for my birthday is that super cool bag thing the ladies at Sephora wear with all their tools... I know I dream big. But lucky for you, I've tested a few products in my time, and I thought I would share with you some of my fav's. Ready for it:

Favorite Facial Mask

Favorite Lip Liner

Favorite self-tanner For those that tan well...

Favorite Eye Shadow

Favorite Mascara

Favorite Blush

Favorite Lip Gloss\

Favorite Skin Care

Favorite Body Butter

There's probably more. I'm kind of embarrassed already at this list. However, if you're looking for a quick gift for me here you go:

In the quiet of the AM

Quiet in my bed, awake before all the kids, I lay here realizing how lucky I am. When all the kids get up life changes, hunger, diapers, messes, playing, more hunger all take over with very little time to just think. The sun was shining, and the house was quiet.

Thank God for my children and my life.

PS. Laila has a horrible habit of finding me in the middle of the night. Here she is waking up as I write this.

15 years ago.

I was at a the Sunday Morning Session of General Conference, with my good friends the Zinn's. We slept outside the temple all night and then took turns changing into church clothes in the car. All so that we could see the Sunday Morning session with President Hinckley. Ironically, I was so tired I barely got anything out of it. Today I am watching the sessions of conference with a husband and four children. Wow how things have changed. What a joy to have been a part of the church for this long, and to have the blessings that have come my way. Unbelievable.

I'm the April fool.

All I have to say is I was a fool believing spring had sprung. I'm a bit chilly and have been for days, I hate being cold. Like a lot.

Anyway... blessings this day. A super convenient sitter who always does a good job, and a date this evening with my husband of 11 years, wow that is a long time!
