Things I learned while at Disneyland... with pictures, but they don't necessarily go along with what I'm saying... and what I'm saying is not in any way, shape, or form in order.
be on a Diet change your way of life if going to Disneyland... the popcorn and cinnamon get you every time.

Okay... if you feel like I have been slightly neglectful in comments lately it's because....
I've been down to the Happiest Place On Earth for a few days! Who ever came up with that... LIED... just saying...
Do you feel cheated? That I just up and snuck down there for two days? Didn't even leave a note telling you where I was?
No worries... I'll make up for it...
Monday's post will be about things I learned while at Disneyland.
But for today... I'm beat, exhausted, tired...
So you get my fav pic!!!
Tell me ONE thing that is consistent with Disneyland?
Waiting in line.
This was me 1/2 the time.... holding the little bit or giving her a piggy back!!!
Have a good weekend everyone!
I'm really excited today... because today I get to PIMP out one of my favorite bloggers/people. She's gorgeous too... which makes her BE-DAZZLE for my blog today!
I followed SHERRIE Shepherd because of her wit on her comments. She's funny!
Then I started reading her blog. She's an honest, wholesome, and organic person. She's true and real when she writes. She is not afraid to tell about her struggle with depression, she writes about it and for me it made her all the more relate able.
But the girl is blessed with a two talents that I honestly have prayed for... it's just not meant to be, for me anyway.
Sherrie runs marathons. That's right, you read that right... she RUNS marathons. On top of that... she ENJOYS it! She actually likes to run... WHAT THE WHAT???
Oh sure I run for exercise... but I hate it each and every time I do it...
OH THE ENVY!
Moving right along. The girl has MAD skillz playing and writing piano music. Seriously... MAD SKILLZ. I GET to review her new CD Solitude.
I hate to be cliche but I've listened to that CD over and OVER again since I got it last week... and my favorite is SOLITUDE... it moves something inside of me. It's so incredible.
I'm in AWE of Sherrie.
Thank you SO much for giving me the opportunity to write about it. You have such a GREAT talent.
So if you don't have this CD. YOU NEED IT--you can use PayPal even or Credit Card Seriously... you'll be missing out if you don't get it. Go over to her MUSIC blog right now and go listen to snippets of the music she has on her side bar. Blue EYED BOY... LOVE, Heart strings... SOOO GOOD-- she wrote them both!!!
You could try and WIN the CD: Just click on her Button below:
Either way... just remember, she was MY friend first, okay that's a lie... but I like to claim it!
And when she's famous... I'll have this blog post to remind everyone that I once was special enough to review her music!
My Review: TWO THUMBS UP plus two BIG TOE's--extra special!!!

This is what I get to listen to every day since the girl could talk. And I eat it up!!! I love it!
She always says it with such ATTITUDE...
She has like 9 swimming suits... the reason being, she wears them EVERYDAY. But her favorite... a used one her Grandma bought from the Thrift Store... I.KID.U. NOT! It's the yellow one she is sporting in this video. She is also allowed, for the most part, to wear her favorite accessory--a headband!
Anyway... the next snippet is of her and her cousin who is staying with us. They are BOTH wearing swimming suits... and PEEPS almost falls off the chair... I'm a good parent like that! ;) But then she laughs... I LOVE her laugh! I just love how they talk... sorry, it's like little cherubic angels to me! :)
So what quirky things do your kids do, like wear their swimming suit everyday???

Well Memorial Day was filled with the Lake and Jet Ski's and…
And cute little people that warm my heart…
And people that make me laugh…
And my WHITE legs, arms, and face…
I was a good girl, I put sunscreen on EVERYTHING but my legs.
Why did I forget my legs you ask?
I got DISTRACTED… my niece needed it on her and asked if I would help her… and then… well let's just say you could FRY an egg on the heat coming off of my SO-SAD bright red skin.
I did learn, however, that I actually LIKE the water to be choppy when cruising/speeding along on a Jet ski. You can get some air! Hehehe… a lot of fun! So glad my BIL invites us along! :)
But you HAVE to know that it is DUE time for a bathroom story.
No worries. This one involved a Port-a-Potty!
I'm honestly SCARRED for life. In fact, I have recurring nightmares while I'm AWAKE.
When we get to the Lake we park in the designated parking area. I see a bathroom facility… but is CLOSED down. All there is, is THREE Porta-Potty's off to the side.
I think to myself, "So glad I don't have to go to the bathroom". Fate would prove otherwise. Of course!
Well, bouncing around on a Jet Ski, drinking two water bottles full of water, an apple, and a couple of handfuls of pistachio's later (that I had to de-shell myself…UGH) I honestly couldn't HOLD it or there would be severe consequences.
So I trudge through the unforgiving sand, uphill, to reach the port-a-potty's.
OH MY GOSH/GADNESS/insert expletive here… (I should have taken a hint when I saw that people had peed on the rocks and weeds around the port-a-potty's) first one I open… someone had PEED in the part where you should be able to wash you hands, if for some reason you had WATER to wash your hands with… lift the seat? FILLED! I know guys--I dry heaved also. So I high tail it out of that one.
Hop over to the next one. Someone had an accident ALL over… just all OVER!!! Yea… that time I threw up a little in my mouth. Wasn't going in there.
Last one… NO TOILET paper… but it wasn't FILLED to the top… so that was a plus. So I braved my way back over to the First one and grabbed the toilet paper. Then I had to rely on my thighs to keep me away from the disease infested toilet seat because I wasn't trusting that toilet paper. I was already going to have to use the bare minimum to wipe… and I'm sorry to have to get this out, but I didn't just have to pee which is why I even had to tough my way through that or I would have held it… BELIEVE ME.
I mean, you guys are probably infected with something just reading this.
It was horrible… and I showered for at least a 1/2 hour.
But the BBQ later that night made up for it! :) Okay, not really. But the food was good.
How did you guys fair yesterday?
Monday, May 25, 2009
All I can say is I don't have to work today.
It will be filled with burgers wrapped in lettuce... Jet Skiing... lots of sunscreen... and complete exhaustion.
I can't wait!!!
So to be a giver... I'm turning off comments here and telling you to go to The Real World Venus vs. Mars today and comment over there! And just TRY to not laugh or agree with that post! hehe!
or... if you are feeling patriotic or solemn and don't feel like laughing yourself silly...
If Your Reading This-Tribute to the troops...

I think the GREATEST blessing in my life is that I've always been lucky enough to know I'm worth something.
I've never questioned that. I've never been lost or had to search for it.
I'm not confused on how I believe.
On my wall growing up, the one I stared at right before I went to sleep, there was a saying that my parents had there, "I know I'm somebody, cause God don't make no junk."
Nowadays they have one that I'm working on getting up in my kids' room. PRINCESS-Daughter of a Heavenly King. (switch Prince for Princess and Son for Daughter).
I'm completely lucky.
And EVERY DAY I pray that my kids grow up with that same conviction... of knowing the worth they are not only to ME and MoutainSport Man... but to their Father in Heaven.
Sorry... just something I think about a lot.

Can you smell it in the air?
It's the changing of the Reality Shows, we go from American Idol--eh--so, so... and we get to get by FAR my favorite REALITY SHOW, who premiere'd last night!
(I wish they would ask me first when they photoshop'd my body on that poster... sigh.)
That's right... So You Think You Can Dance. Two hours of bliss... aaahhhh.
Of course we watched it on the DVR so I could fast forward. Sometimes those trying out make me feel all embarrassed for them, SO embarrassed I Fast Forward to save them the humiliation!!!
I'm nice like that.
Anyway... more on that another time. If you are an Alien from another planet and have no idea what I'm talking about... here's a few of my favorites to break ya in CLICK HERE or HERE. Or HERE!!!
I was able to take pictures of a Dance Concert a couple of weekends ago. Here are my two favorite shots.
Now go to Candid Carrie's Friday Foto Finish Fiesta and see who else is playing!
The coolest part of that Dance Concert... my niece performed her solo that she is taking to NYC for the New York City Dance Alliance Nationals--she placed for a spot in the Finals Gala... I'm biased... but I think she is amazing!!! After you watch her, I'll let you know how old she is.
(I'm awesome in this video at cat calling... I have that patented BTW... so you can't do it like me or I'll sue you.)
The girls 10!!! 10 years old. GAH... I love her! She's definitely my FAVORITE oldest niece!
P.S. I'm over at the Real World Venus vs. Mars today. I tell about the pranks my husband pulls on me... come over and say HI!!!
P.S.S. Everytime you comment... I lose weight... just saying.

This picture I got off Google Images and is close but NOT close to what I'm talking about! Cause what SHE's doing is totally okay! (rolls eyes) But some of my readers ONLY LIKE PICTURES... so I'm trying to please everyone here!!!
Stopped at a stop light.
I look over.
And this is what I saw.
A lady ... (if I were a mean girl that judged in her head I would call her a little TRASHY looking) who was having, apparently, an INTENSE conversation on her cell phone.
She was yelling and very animated.
She was holding the cell phone her her right hand. NOT squishing it between her ear and her shoulder... but HOLDING it in that hand.
In her left hand, that was FLAILING around, she held a cigarette.
Even though I could say right here that I'm not one to judge... you guys would know I was lying... I said something in my mind that was probably siding on MEAN girl status.
So I'll spare you the repeat.
But then I shrugged and thought... "Everyone has their vices. But how is she managing to drive?" I know it's manageable... but her concentration was clearly on whoever was on the phone... and BOTH of her hands were full... so her control at best was one where she could only use a part of a hand, her knee, or she would have to choose to give up the cig or the cell phone.
Then I LOOK further.
And this is where I wanted to get out of my van and violently hurt the chick.
In her back seat was a child. Closer to infant then toddler. And on further recall... not even sure the kid was belted in her car seat!!!
This is where I need your help.
Her window was down... mine was down.
Grant it I was in shock... but I HONESTLY wanted to say something.
And it was like my brain had had TOO much cold ice cream... it was FROZEN... I had NOTHING.
And then the light turned Green.
And like the beginning of a race, the chick was OFF!
I was stuck behind a NATURAL road block. (Natural Road Block=Senior Citizen whose speed is turtle slow or snail slow)
I didn't even think to POP off a picture! THAT is how in shock I was!
So let's hear it... what would you have said? Or not said.
I need ammo, cause HEAVEN forbid I see that again, but if I did... I think I'm morally obligated to teach the CHIT a lesson!!! (see now I'm speaking in tongues... CHIT?HA! I'm leaving it!)
I love reflecting back on what I SHOULD have said or done... one of my many favorite things to do! And happens WAY TO OFTEN to me! Especially after an arguement... it's like my brain finally catches up with the present!

I'm not funny, my voice sounds like I ate a frog, and I answer a question with sincerity.
But I have gotten emails about this question... and comments about this question... so I decided to answer it because KRITTA asked it when she ambushed my comment box. So here I am answering it as if you asked me at my house--only I would NEVER show you my "Catch all storage ROOM"--and I'd hide the vacuum... I wouldn't want people to know that I actually owned a vacuum because then they would expect me to use it!
Last thing... I love how It always catches me, mid talk, or mid smile, or mid yawn... or MID anything... or stops on me mid talk, mid smile, or mid yawn... or MID ANYTHING. IT's always my best side!
Here's Kritta's Question:
Once your hubby is done with school, where do you want to live?
what is he going to school for anyway??
So here are the other installments I have done for the Kritta AMBUSH! :) Deep Questions I and II.
And don't be shy guys... if you ever have any questions I'll answer them... if I don't know the answer (which is SELDOM--rolls eyes) then I'll Google it!
Seriously though... I'm like an open book.
So how about you guys! How often do you get ANTSY for a change in your life?
K... Have a GREAT day! :)

***Update***-- I'm leaving this post up for Monday so that EVERYONE can enjoy the Sexy People Love!!! :) Seriously check out Today's post... MARCUS!!! I love my computer to, but seriously, that is taking it TO far! lol!
your. welcome! So if you have already read this post... Take a break--see ya tomorrow!!!
Since I posted a Serious Monday... I thought I would shake it up for Sunday.
When I was single, and was asked out by a guy, I rarely said No.
For a few reasons.
First of all... the guy had the guts to ask in the first place.
Secondly... when I wanted to say NO... I didn't have the heart to do it... I have a weak, guilt ridden heart.
Even if I did say No and was smart enough to come up with a good excuse why I couldn't go out with them, like: 'I'm sorry Joe, I can't do anything for the WHOLE month because I have to work some CRAZY hours so when I'm not working, I'm sleeping... catch me next month k?'
Then I'd feel so bad for stretching the truth that Karma would turn around and bite me in the butt and I'd be SO busy working that I'd get home and sleep and my social life would be non-existent. Then next month they would hit me up again and so I just ended up making my life worse and prolonging the inevitable!
Plus I suck at lying...it's written all over my face.
Thirdly... Someone else was paying for my food for the night...
My favorite thing after a date would be when people asked me how it was and how the guy was.
If I thought he was FUNNY and charming but wasn't attracted to him I would always say, 'he's got a sweet spirit'.
I think if I would have dated in the 80's I would have said that A LOT. :)
These pics prove it -- Fritz, Bobby, Greg and Valerie, and Robbie ... I'm obsessed with this blog BTW!!!
And I'm pretty sure Craig looks exactly like someone who bought me my first dozen roses... but that's not why I think poorly of flowers, really it's not.
Oh stop... you can't tell me you didn't laugh... and you can't tell me you didn't date any "Sweet Spirits" so get off your pedestal.
And no worries people... I'm pretty sure I was someone's SWEET SPIRIT... these things always go full circle.
Hope you had a good weekend!

A few weeks ago I got to attend my SIL's wedding! And she asked my daughter to be one of her flower girls. Since we don't get to do this a lot... we were kinda excited! Especially when my daughter saw the dress she was going to get to wear!!!
So here you go... some pics of the Flower Girls at my SIL's wedding.
B. wasn't to happy we were taking pics of her... but she is still adorable even when she pouts. :)
Now go over to Candid Carrie's to join in the Friday Foto Finish Fiesta Fun.

If you have a feeling that someone is prego, can you ask?

Do you just let it go?

Let me start off by saying... I don't condone my husbands bad behavior.
I have a hard time not laughing. It's a weakness... and all though it LOOKS and SEEMS like I am condoning, embracing, and accepting... I'm not. Absolutely-Positively NOT.
But it WAS funny. That's all I'm saying.
Here let me break it down for ya.
I have been working A TON. Editing and taking pictures and editing some more. Ordering, rejecting, and editing some more. Then going to my day job. On top of all that--traveling so I can take more pictures... because I'm completely obsessed with photography and SOME DAY I hope to make it my ONLY job... but for now--it's a side job.
Anyway... my guy, MountainSport Man, has had A LOT of one on one time with my kids. I mean... A LOT. Like more than usual...
So we are driving in the car the other day and this is what happens when my husband has MORE than enough time with his children...
Scene: we are in the car driving by Panda Express... one of PeePs favorite places to eat.
PeePs: "Dad, I'm hungry. My tummy wants Panda."
MSM: "It does? Let me think about it... ummmmm NO!"
PeePs: "F'n A!" (prounounced 'effin A') she says aloud in disgust!
See we don't use BAD words necessarily in this house... and my husband has actually come a ways to get to the point where substitutes replace the bad words he use to say. Obviously F'n A is one of his substitutes.
I immediately, while battling to hold down a smile, said, "PeePs... don't say that!"--but then I busted out laughing, along with MSM and DCar. So my discipline is NOT taken seriously...
I know, I know... we're terrible parents. But like I said.
Laughing is kinda my weakness. I usually use it for good... but in cases like this, it's force is used against me. *shakes head*
How about you guys? Anybody else?
UPDATE: It's Crash's Birthday today... hop, run, or walk over to her blog and shout her praises and sing her happy birthday... let's see if we can bug her and warm her cold stone heart!!!

So here is something you may NOT know about me.
Sometimes staring at people gets me into trouble, especially when I was younger and not so good at it. I would continue to stare even when people caught me. Like when I almost got beat up:
I was in middle school. It was right before a really cool assembly, one NOT to be missed assembly.
She was new and different. I, no lie, slowed down and stared at her, staring at her tongue ring. She looked over to me and stared back. Then she got an evil look on her face and I remember thinking, 'Wow, she has really pretty green eyes! I wonder if those are real or contacts'.
Then she yelled at me while looking in the mirror, bringing me out of my revelry, "What are YOU looking at, B*!#@*?"
I instantly looked away and started walking into the bathrooms. She turned around. "What are you looking at? You think you are so much better than me? You think you have the right to stare at me?"
I started sweating and wanted to run and hide away.
I was in middle school... I had zilcho confidence in myself. So it still boggles my mind why I turned around and said, "I was staring at nothing. I didn't mean to be rude. I just need to go to the bathroom REALLY bad. Ummm...s-s-s-orry? What are you going to do...beat me up?"
The problem is when after I said it, it sounded what it was, FUNNY. So then I had that half grin on my face, and that internal battle ensued... trying my hardest not to laugh, but not succeeding.
She said, "My boyfriend is here at the assembly and he hates people like you. You better not come to the assembly because if I see you there I'm going to have him kick your A$$!" Then she stormed away in all her gangster glory.
I stood there staring and shocked because first of all, she swore *gasp*, and in MY WORLD people just didn't swear. I heard it on rare occasion and almost always in a joking kind of giddy kid fashion not in a I'm-mad-and-am-going-to-kick-your-butt-fashion.
Second of all, she was going to have her boyfriend kick my butt (well actually my a.$.$., but you knew that).
I was scared. I vowed to NEVER stare again. I prayed saying logical things like I wouldn't stare at people ever, EVER again...
I went to the assembly, pale faced and scared out of my mind. I instantly told my friends, (maybe if the boyfriend had to get through a bunch of skinny, gangly, middle school girls, he would tire before he got to me), and we spent the WHOLE assembly looking for the boyfriend.
Guess what? They ditched the assembly.
I still stare. I spent five years of my life getting paid to stare as a lifeguard...but now I do it for free and a little bit more inconspicously...like, look away when they catch me staring.
So there you go...
Anything you need to tell me?
Sunday, May 10, 2009
I'm sorry. But I had a friend comment yesterday and she made me aware of a GREAT blog. I want to share it.
I instantly got on it and read the WHOLE thing.
I would give it a prelude but it speaks for itself.
It's called Mother Has A Secret.
Earlier this year my friend told me about a blog she was writing about her life as a child. She's a fantastic writer.
But her story is sad. It breaks the toughest heart. And I have a very weak heart. So it's hard for me to get through her posts because even though she breaks up the story with her great humor... it's ultimately sad... and I find myself trying hard not to cry.
Read her story... her blog is called Sunny Andersonn.
Abuse in any form is sick. It's wrong and it's sick. But it's out there.
It's out there and still ignored and hard to speak about.
It ruins peoples lives and minds and souls.
I think brave people like these two women, who write their story down, help other people.
It also helps those of us that may not have first hand experience with it but have loved ones that have.
I tend to lean more toward light and humorous reading... but not ONLY are these blogs incredibly well written, but they are true life experiences... and reality helps us grow whether we experience it ourselves or through someone else... we learn, we grow, and hopefully we become better people in the end.
So I'm spreading the word...

I had to go to Wally World (WalMart) last night to pick up some treats for my Relief Society lesson tomorrow.
This is what I saw... HAD to take a picture!!!

Happy Mother's Day girls!

My lil' sis graduated!!! I'm seriously so proud of her.
I'm lucky because my sisters are my best friends. And when they accomplish something big in their life... I feel like I accomplish something also... so it's a good thing!
My lil' Sis and her Hubby. The thing with my sister is she is as beautiful inside as she is out. Honestly, it's kinda hard to compete with that.
And after a LONG time of trying... she is FINALLY pregnant. Here is our nice smile shot for ya'll... because what happens next is a sickness we have in our family. When we get together and the camera is out... it's time for a KMART model shot...
Again... right on THREE before the pic snaps my brother busts out laughing... and he's laughing at ME... RUDE... I'm trying to get in the MODE (mood-KMART model MOOD)
We are trying to get a Sister shot... the BUTT in the back, my Older Bro... again he's a guy... whattya do???
