Get ready Utah

Hey... I only have a second before I head off to work. I just wanted to let you all know that I am comming Utah April 3rd -7th. It will be the first time that I get to see General Conference in the conference center! I am really looking forward to it, I'm sure it will be an unforgetable experience. So hopefully I can get in contact with some of you while I'm out in that neck of the woods.

That's a nice shiner you got there

This is the biggest bruise I have ever had. It is actually really pretty... purple and yellow and green and blue... like a magical rainbow of pain. I think I have told everyone and their dog how I got it already (I was even showing people in the lunchroom the other day at work), but for sake of documentation here is the story again. I fell down a half of flight of cement stairs at work. People have asked me if I plan on filling some kind of claim or collecting workman's comp. However this fall can not be blamed on the stairs, but instead on the girl who runs down them full speed with a bag full of books in high heel shoes.

My mom just walked in the room and looked at that picture and said, "Oh my goodness, that looks just like your leg!" LOL... "That's because it is my leg Mom!!!!!"

Today at work I asked a few guys in my office what they were going to do for the special lady in their life on Valentines Day. Many of them still have no idea, so I tried to offer some simple suggestions. However one of the men in my office said that his girlfriend does not like Valentines Day because it is a "Hallmark Holiday." This is not the first time I have heard this... what do people have against Hallmark anyway? I realize that this is no Christmas or Easter and pales in comparison to Thanksgiving, but here are a few reasons why I LOVE VALENTINES DAY.
  • It is a great excuss to wear pink and red!!!
  • You can draw little hearts on everything just like when you were in middle school.
  • It's another great reason to eat chocolate.
  • Candy Hearts are a great way to boost self esteem.. nothing like eating a candy that says "Hot Stuff" or "Too Cute" on it.
  • It is the perfect time to reveal hidden feelings for someone special.
  • Or even better have someone reveal their feelings for you...
  • I love the smell of the roses that my Dad gets for my mom
  • Stuffed animals holding hearts that play music when you push their hands provide hours of mind numbing entertainment (I have a small collection, and enjoy testing them out at Wal-mart).
  • Because all you needs is LOVE!!!!

Have a great Valentines Day... Let me know if anything magical happens!

Too Tired to Sleep

All day long I have been fighting to keep my eyes open... In fact I took a nice little 15 minute nap on the bus smooshed between two bussiness men. Now here it is after 11:00 and I'm finding it hard to go to bed. Do you ever feel like you lack motivation to sleep? That comment may sound absurd to some, but if you have experienced this phenominon it should make perfect sense to you.
That's all I have for today... sorry, I know it's not much but it's the thought that counts. I am trying to save up for a new digital camera right now because mine isn't working right, but for thoes of you who have seen it before you would agree it's time for an upgrade. My digital camera is about the size of a brick and the weight is comprable as well. Once I get a new model I will go on a picture taking rampage... good things are comming soon!!!

Knitting is the bomb

Thanks to David for finding this picture for me... Is that Andre 3000 from Outkast? I am crocheting a scarf right now and soon I will start the knitting extravaganza I have to go buy me a pair of needles and then the beautiful Nicole Gardner is going to give me a lesson. I submit that this is another wonderful reason to take the bus...
