I made this in Photoshop because I was bored. I wrote the poem all by myself. I had to say that or else someone might think I plagerized seeing as how the quality of my poem is high. If you click on it you'll see a more clear picture.

I posted a link to a website on the side of my blog (under Visit these other blogs) that will tell you what time it is and what the weather will be like where I'll be in Invercargill New Zealand. Obviously I'm not there yet but you can refer to that often once I leave so you never miss me too much.

I'm a Movie Star: No Really.

Last week the YSA in my home stake had an Academy Awards night. The week before we got in groups and filmed movies to watch and judge at the Academy Awards. I edited my movie and it got best overall film AND I got best actress. The Academy Awards were spray painted Mrs. Butterworths (which came filled to the brim with syrup.) It was a lot of fun. I put tons of work into getting the decorations, flyer, and movie ready, but I'd say it was worth it. Oh AND I was defintely the best looking one there. Just kidding. I used the grandkid's dress up gloves and mom's spare sun glasses and gaudy rings to top the outfit off.

I purchased a wetsuit for $33.40 off ebay, a zero degree mummy bag on sale for $20.00 and my next buy is hiking boots. Hopefully there won't be much more to buy after that. I'm getting really good deals though because I don't care so much about the brand like some people in the group do. This is a picture of my actual sleeping bag.

Kameron bought me the new Rascal Flatts cd and I'm in heaven. I listen to it at least twice a day so I can master all the songs. If you are from Utah (or if you are my dad) you will probably have a hard time saying the name of this album: Still Feels Good. Or is it Still Fills Good or Steel Fills Good or Steel Feels Good? Kameron was lucky he got the cd on sell, I mean sale.

The other day I was walking down the stairs at the library to go into my office. I looked over at the bathrooms and saw a girl walking out of the girls bathroom....and then I saw an old man walking out right behind her. He walked out the door and made the turn into the boys bathroom. It's a mistake we've all made right? I don't know why but it was hilarious. I think it was the look on the man's face. He was wearing a Mr. Roger's jacket with his pants up past his belly button and just a hint of a smirk. It made my day. It just reminded me of the time I went into the men's bathroom at the movie theater just 2 years ago. The people outside tried to warn me but it wasn't until I saw the urinals that I knew I was in the wrong place. Luckily the bathroom was empty.

I AM PECULIAR (this is a permanent post. If you have already read it, scroll down to see my latest)

Those of you who read my blog could probably make a list of all the reasons that you think I am a bit peculiar. No worries, I would be the first to shout an amen to everything you could think of. I know I’m peculiar; but let me tell you the number one thing on my list that I think makes me a peculiar person.

I know where I come from, why I am here and where I am going. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Some of you will know me as a “Mormon” although that is just a nickname. The word ‘Saint’ just means ‘member’ in this context. I believe in God the Eternal Father, that I am a daughter of God, and that He loves me and wants me to be happy. I believe in my Savior Jesus Christ who lived a perfect life, atoned for my sins, died and was resurrected all that I might enjoy the blessing of being forgiven of my sins, and having my body and spirit reunited after death. I know that just as God called prophets in the Old and New Testament times that He has in fact called a prophet to lead and guide us today. I believe that families can live together for eternity; death does not have to be the end of our relationships with the ones we love. Some of you may wonder how on earth I can know these things. As I learn more and more from the Bible and other scriptures and actually live what I learn I see the promises the Lord has made being fulfilled in my life, and I feel the Holy Spirit bear witness that these things are true.

I know, I’m peculiar, but thankfully there are over 13 million other peculiar members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and with each year that number grows. I feel so much joy and happiness in my life because of this knowledge. If you want to know more depth about anything I have said that makes me peculiar, visit This website explains in detail much of what I have just professed to believe and more.
