Best Friend Where Art Thou?

This is my best friend Bre from California. When I moved in with Chris and Katie I met her. We instantly clicked. We just had a blast that year until the fam moved to Utah. Well she has finally graduated and will now be making her way to Utah in August and I am so excited. I am counting down the days. It is so hard to find a best friend. And all this time I have been looking but now that Bre is coming I don't have to worry! :) Missing you Bre... I can't wait till you get here at the of August!

welcome to my blog

So... My Dad is on my list to receive an email every time I post. And in my email inbox this is what he had sent in reply to yesterday's post:

The subject header was "welcome to my blog"

"hello everybody welcome to my blog. I decided to start my own blog
after reading my daughter Cassidy's blog. Blogs can be so much fun. I
will talk about all kinds of things and try not to confuse or bore
anyone. Today I want to talk about McDonald's. I love McDonald's don't
you. I love the fries. I like them when I order combinations and I tell
them "GO LARGE" it is so exciting you need to be there. How about the
Big Macs (wow) they are great.......try not to put too much salt on
them though. I love getting my own can actually hear
the ice hitting your cup .........neat!........I prefer Coca-Cola
regular, but sometimes I mix diet with regular if they are not I bad or I love sitting in McDonald's
don't you. I wonder sometimes what Ronald McDonald's house must be like.
I bet its I bet he is so cool. I wonder if he has seen
Batman? does he watch the Mole? wow how neat. I could go on and on but
I guess I should try to find a life of some kind huh? wow how
deep............... welcome to my blog that's all from my world. Tomorrow
I might talk about pizza.....hope you can join gotta to go."

P.S. Dad I loved your post. It was hilarious. After reading my cheeks hurt from laughing. But that should teach you because now I have posted it on my blog! :) Ha ha ha ha ha (imagine that in an evil laugh). Love you Dad-

Shark and Beach Cupcakes

Shark and Beach Cupcakes

Are you spending a weekend at the beach this summer? Let your surroundings inspire your cupcake creations and try our shark- and beach-themed treats!

How cute are these... I love Sharks! 

Who is the MOLE?

Who is the mole? I have been watching this show all season. It is called the Mole and is on ABC on Monday nights at ten. It is down to three as of last night when Paul was "Executed". If you watch this show too then please take my poll: Who is the Mole? Let me just give you a quick rundown of the Mole. "The Mole" follows a group of 12 players as they try to figure out who among them is The Mole. The Mole, a saboteur trying to keep them from winning money. Players must decide who they think The Mole is and then learn as much about him or
her as they can, because, at the end of each one-hour episode, the player who knows the least about The Mole is immediately "Executed" from the game. In the final dramatic episode, The Mole is revealed and one of two final players wins a substantial cash prize (which right now is over $360,000). If you have time and are interested in watching the shows then you can watch episodes on Down below are the last three contestants. Which one of them looks Mole worthy to you. Can you figure out who the Mole is?

Puppy I Love You...

Roxy I know you can't read,
but I just wanted you to know that I love you like a fat kid loves cake!
I love how you follow me around and keep
me company.
I also love how you take naps with me. 
I can talk to you about anything and you always listen
and never interrupt.
Like Carrie Underwood says
"The more boys I meet the more I love my dog."

Oh Batman

It is time to report. What did I think of The Dark Knight (Batman). It seems like it is a popular subject for conversations these days... Let me start off by saying that it was a dark movie. I really did not feel a warm cheery feeling after that movie which was kind of disappointing. So there was a lot of killing... I couldn't handle it. But overall I liked the movie. Very well done: special effects were awesome, the message the movie gave you really made you think, and the cast was very good. The ACTING was AMAZING. I thought almost everyone did an awesome job. Heath Ledger really stole the show. He was great! He played the Joker so brilliantly. I really enjoyed watching him but it made me kind of sad that Christian Bale was in the shadows in terms of acting performance. I hated Rachel Dawes which was played by Maggie Gyllenhaal. Now Rachel Dawes (her character) was in Batman Begins but was played by Katie Holmes. Rachel Dawes is a childhood friend of Bruce Wayne's. Her mother used to work at Wayne Manor. She grows up to be an assistant DA at Gotham City, working under Carl Finch. I wish they would have just stuck with Katie Holmes. I hope they do a third Batman and that it focuses on Batman more and how cool his bat cave and stuff is. 

Anybody Know?

I need a job....It is embarrassing to say but yes I am unemployed. I don't have a job and I need one! The summer is almost over. So I am desperate and posting this on my blog: IF anyone knows of someplace that is hiring or has any good ideas of someplace I could work please let me know. I would greatly appreciate it! 

Also I thought I would put this out there. If anyone needs a babysitter let me know. Just leave me a comment of where I could get a hold of you (email or something). And another thing. I specialize in week or weekend baby sitting jobs. So if your going out of town and are not bringing the kids then I am the one for you. I love doing these jobs. Let me know. Thanks!

Happy Birthday Dear Sister Of Mine...

Happy Birthday Haylie

Today is my lovely sister's birthday. She is 22. Wow! Can you believe it. We are all getting so much older. How do we stop it. Haylie, I love you so much. You're so beautiful- I love the new hair cut and you still have your curly hair. So original and so Haylie. You have always been there for me. I hated it when you moved out to go to college. You weren't there with me anymore in the bathroom every morning getting ready and I couldn't borrow your clothes secretly. :) By the way though CONGRATULATIONS on graduating college. You're a college grad- I'm so proud of you and I am so proud to have you as a sis. We have been through so much these last couple of years and you have stood next to me the whole time. You never ran from it or me. I love you sista........ I am so excited for you and what you have going in your life. Thanks for still calling me- I love hearing about all your dates and fun adventures working at the zoo. You are such a hard worker. You have always been an example to me! Also I should really thank you for all those times as a kid when you would help me with my intro when I was writing an essay. Actually, if I remember correctly your would pretty much write the intro for me. I am so excited about your creative writing degree. You are going to be a successful women. You are going to have so much fun living with G & G in California. Don't lose the drive you have right now- go on to get your masters! You can do it! Ha ha (sorry I love exclamation marks). Happy Birthday- enjoy your birthday day. 22! Ha ha geez

Thank you Haylie for coming to visit last month. This is Haylie and I at Boon Docks!

This is my favorite picture. My sister Haylie and Abby- they both look so beautiful. We took a trip to Thanksgiving Point Flower Gardens: Summer 06.

Fishing at Tibble Fork

Monday Night for family home evening we went fishing at Tibble Fork up American Fork Canyon. It was so much fun. Roxy and I took a nice long walk: she got to play in the water, chase other animals like squirrels and such and run around. She loved it as did I. I caught one fish right before we left. I was very excited about that. It was literally minutes before we drove away. The fish must have known we were leaving and wanted to come so he grabbed my hook. I caught a FISH! Yahooooooooo. Highlight of my week!

Which Disney Princess Are You?

Image hosted by

Headstrong and fiesty. You have a mind of your own that's full of romantic dreams about the world around you. Exploring exotic places is your ultimate dream, and although you can be a little naive you'll realize that there is something to be gained from your family's wisdom.

Which Disney Princess Are You?

The Dark Night

You all know what I am talking about. The Dark Night is coming out this Friday the 18 and I am so excited! We bought tickets on Monday and everything was pretty much sold out. I mean everything. Of course you can get tickets Thursday night but that was even worse. For a party of two the best you could do is sit two rows away from each other. But I recommend you buy tickets and see it. I also love Christian Bale: he is so very handsome. He is definitely one of my celeb crushes. I hope it won't be as big of a let down as Indiana Jones was....... I will let you know what I think of the movie after I see it!
