Ummm Hello there....

So Im sitting here in the Las Vegas Airport biding my time until my siblings flight gets in... and I just had to say... YUCK!! Every where you look youre bombarded with posters for Peep Shows and Chipindales, there are practically naked people on HUGE billboards all over the place. Then there is ear drum bursting music playing and clinking lotto machines... holy overwhelming. Now, I am trying to convince myself that its not just cause Im old (which I am by the way) but its because I have a sensitive spirit... haha! But I was just realizing how gross the world is, and its so in your face... like you dont even have a choice wether or not to have these things put into your head. I know that Vegas is supposed to be full of energy and fun, but let me just say that when I have kids, they are going to have to wear blindfolds and ear plugs when we fly Las Vegas. The End


Who are you?

I look at other people's blogs ALL the time! I work from home on my computer, so lets be honest and say I take breaks to browse blogs. I love looking at pictures and hearing funny stories and reading people's thoughts. However, I hardly ever leave a comment after reading. Im not really sure why, maybe cause its a hassle. Sometimes when people are asking questions or something Ill make a comment, or when I am looking at my Lucy and I feel like squealing from her cuteness!
My beautiful niece Lucy!

Anyway, I never feel like people look at my blog because the only people who leave comments are my mom or rarely a friend. (Im not tryin to hate cause I never leave comments either) So I was just curious to see if anyone was reading. I put a counter at the bottom of the page after I did my last post, and to my amazement there were like 50 views! How exciting! Who knew so many people were interested in my life?

Now I am curious to see who it is that is reading my blog. So... please leave a comment on this post and tell me who you are! Also, if you have a blog that I am not following please tell me cause I would love to read your blog to!

My New Years Resolution is to make comments more frequently on other people's blogs, and I promise not to expect any more comments on my blogs either, because lets be honest, its easier to browse real quick that stop and comment on everyones posts...

Thanks, and Happy Holidays!

Food, Food, Food

So, my new goal is to write at least once a week. Since my life is pretty boring, I decided that instead of updates all the time, Im gonna blog about topics that are important to me.

Today, its food... Oh I love food and Im actually pretty hungry right now! I recently watched the movie Julie and Julia. I loved it! Not like its a really great story or action packed or anything (Richard would have hated it!) but I just love to watch people create yummy food. I am not a great cook by any means, mostly cause Im lazy and prefer instant gratification like top ramen. Id like to be a great cook, but Im a simple girl. Here are my favorites:

#1 I LOVE LOVE LOVE Top Ramen! Most people eat it because its cheap. I eat it cause I love it. I am a top ramen snob and will eat only Maruchan brand. Its delicious and I will eat it everyday. Not so healthy but I do put frozen peas and chicken in there occassionally. Its extra yummy when you sprinkle in some crushed red pepper flakes!
#2- My favorite meal (also pretty unhealthy) is Chicken Divan. Its one of our family staples, ive grown up on the stuff, and I love it! The first time I made it for Richard he was scared to try it (it doesnt look so appealing) but he LOVED it too! Now he wants me to make it all the time.

#3 If you ask any person who knows me, what my favorite place in the whole world is, they would say CHILIS!!! I never get sick of it. Growing up we had a Chilis just down the road from us and it was the place we would go after all the school events, birthdays, special occasions, etc.

I die for Chilis Chips and Queso. In Washington there is no Chilis (id say the main reason I hate it here) and no matter where any one travels to, their number one item to bring back to me is Chips and Queso. I will never get sick of it, and I will eat it every day if I can. If anyone out there would like to make my life, all you have to do is send me some chilis and i will love you forever.

If I could choose one meal to eat for the rest of my life, it would be Chilis chips and queso with Chilis combo fajitas. PERFECTION!! I have eaten pretty much every item on the menu and the fajitas are my absolutely favorite. My mouth is watering right now. Oh my loves!
Thats all it takes in life to make me happy. Maybe when I start having kids I will branch out and make some healthier, more complex meals... but right now I am going to make myself some top ramen!

Bon Apetite!


Let the Juices Flow!

Let me just say that since living with my mom, my creativeness has been enhanced. Not only does she invite me to all her Relief Society activites, but also her head is just FULL of crafts waiting to be made. So, a couple of weeks ago we went to a mid week activity and made these AWESOME clocks. My mom made a bunch for gifts... I made one for myself.

I am SO proud of myself. That was just a piece of wood that I sanded and painted and antiqued and put the clock mechanism in, attached ALL those decals! In my opinion it looks professionally done. Melissa and I had been looking everywhere for sales on nice wall clocks, and now we have these great personalized ones... Im impressed!
