Your celebrity crush.
I fell in love after watching all four seasons of Prison Break. Don't worry Will knows about my crush. I think Will has a man crush on him. We named our turtle Wentworth. He even graduated from Princeton. Looks and brains!

Day 15

Something you don’t leave the house without.
That would have to me my head. I have left my house several times without my phone, my keys, my wallet, my purse, my jacket, you know those things that most people don't ever leave the house without. I realize I have a problem.

Day 10 & 11

Day 10 – A photo of our favorite place to eat. Happy Sumo..MMMMMMMMMMMMM
Oh how I love the Sumo! I tried sushi for the first time when I was about 15. It was at an all you can eat Chinese food buffet. It was awful, and I threw it up. Then in college I was introduced to good sushi and I was in heaven! 

Day 11 – What’s in your makeup bag?
The four essentials. Mascara, eye lash curler, eye liner, and shine free powder.

Day 3

I skipped day 2 because I thought it was lame. Who really wants to see a picture of something I ate?
Totally cliche but this is my perfect date. I love the ocean, love the sand, love the sun! Will proposed on the beach. Drove me all the way to California just so he could propose on the beach. How sweet.

Day 1

Post a picture of yourself and how your day was.
I woke up at 7. Figured I would do some Yoga before Lincoln woke up at 8. At 7:05 Lincoln started crying. My plan to exercise was foiled once again. What can you do? Shared a bowl of cereal with Lincoln. Went to work. Came home. Made hot dogs for dinner. Watched Modern family. Got scared when my cat started clawing at the front door. And now I am blogging. What an uneventful day. I LOVED IT!

Help Ezakiel

Baby Ezekiel is in the hospital with RSV and several heart defects. 
Some of the same ones Lincoln had.
He is seven weeks old and could sure use some prayers.
Go to this link to see what you can do to help him and his family.
His mom and dad own the sub zero ice cream in the Provo mall.
Go buy some ice cream anytime to help show your support. 
If you live elsewhere you can donate funds
and if you don't have the means to donate, 
you can pray and help spread the word.

Thought I would share...


I went to a conference and had the honor of hearing Shari Dew speak to us. (One of my favorite authors) She showed us this video and talked about the importance of motherhood. She related a story about a friend who sat by the guests of honor at a dinner party. The wife was receiving many awards. The husband turned to her friend and said "So what do you do?" For the first time she felt like being a mother was insignificant. She responded meekly "Oh, I stay at home with our three children."
"Oh." The man said and turned away to talk to someone more interesting.

Why is it that we live in a world where if a woman chooses to stay at home with her children she is missing out on something? Someday I hope to be able to stay at home with Lincoln. I've often felt anxiety about this. Should I be doing something more? But what is more important than raising your children? 
"We no longer have the luxury of spending our energy on anything that does not lead us and our families to Christ." Sheri Dew
Don't get me wrong, I know that there are circumstances where it is just not possible for a woman to stay at home with her children. But I still believe that when it is possible it is a beautiful thing.
