This girl is funny and I like her humor. I went to high school with her and I love reading her weekly "Things That Must Go Friday". Very funny.

Birthday, Rock Band, and a Wedding!

Dan's birthday was on Monday (3 1/2 weeks older than me!) and we celebrated by going to Tepanyaki! We had never been before and we loved it! Our cook was funny and we were really entertained.

Steph and Trace. Cuties.

These were from our friend Chase's wedding at Red Butte Gardens. It was really pretty.

Beatles rock band!!! Alex, Brigham and Lissie rockin' out.

Brigham was totally rockin' the rockstar earrings with his jammies!S

Dan has been growing out his hair for awhile and I love his curls! He always comes out of the bathroom at night with some new hairstyle to make me laugh. This was one of my favorites.

Ryan munching on some celery.

The cute girlies at Dave & Amanda's barbeque.
Here we are with all our laptops just bein coooooooooool.

Nie Nie on Oprah

So I have become a fan of reading Nie Nie Dialogs which is an amazing and inspiring blog about a woman and her husband who were in a terrible plane crash and the woman nearly died. She is still in the process of recovering, but she has returned to her previous bloggings and to read her story and see the way that she lives her life is incredible. I read nearly her entire blog as well as her sister's blog (who posted while she was in a coma for several months) and now I regularly keep up on it. Anyway, she is going to be on Oprah tomorrow so I wanted to update my blog and encourage you all to watch or record it if you can. I don't know a lot about her and her family except for her plane crash story and that she relies heavily on her religion to get her through life and to being such an inspiration. So check out Oprah tomorrow (Wednesday) at 4:00 if you can! I'm sure it will be an uplifting story.

Some more pages

So this post is for Jenny so she can see some of the scrapbook pages I've been doing. I'm getting more and more comfortable with it and I'm really loving it! I'm getting ready to print a big batch and put them in a book I just bought, and I'm stoked! Hopefully my pages will give you some ideas of what you can do. I'm not a creative gal so I just copy layouts from other scrapbookers! I also use Quick Pages that others have made which make things go fast. Also, here is a list of other great digital scrapbooking sites that I use a lot:

*Download GIMP:
*Jessica Sprague, Photo editing tutorials:
*GIMP tutorials:
*Growing Pains Scrapped:
*Scrapping Sisters:
*Stuff to Scrap:
*Digi Designs by Nicole:
*Summertime Designs:
*Digi Free Search Engine:
*Shabby Princess:
*Digital Scrapbook Place:

There are tons more out there, but these are the ones I use a lot and I also google things to figure out what I want or to find free stuff that I need! Email me at and I'll send you my "real" email to get in touch and I'll answer any questions I can!
