Listen People ...

My sister and I were discussing this today.
Where are you carrying a banana that you have 
to put it in a case to protect it?!?
I think that is the dumbest thing  ...
plus I really don't like bananas.
It is the noise you make when you eat them that drives me insane!

I'm Not Ashamed To Admit ...

I saw this, and loved it!

PS ... Dear Snyder Girls,
Thanks for the passionate recommendation!

To My Fellow Survivor Fans ...

If I hear him call himself the "dragon slayer" one more time ...
it is not going to be pretty.

Why ...

can't he just live in my living room,
and sing to me whenever I want?

Rejuvenation ...

I had been cooped up all morning in my room, working on my talk for church tomorrow... and I needed a little break and some rejuvenation.

Then I heard the rain outside start falling harder and harder. I LOVE the rain! Love, love, love it! And since I was too busy/lazy to wash my car this week I figured I should go drive it around in the rain to give it a little bath.

Let me tell you ...

Driving in the rain
a DC with orange from Sonic
Giving my car an "organic" bath
(you know since I am going green and all)
Belting out to "Lost In Your Eyes" by Debbie Gibson
Serious Rejuvenation

Plus on the way home I got to watch the Springville police chase a guy down the street, knock him down, and handcuff him. It was like watching an episode of COPS! 

Now back to working on that talk ...

Yummy, Yummy ...

Another one of my goals for 2009 was to learn to make lemon curd.
I love anything lemon.
On Sunday I used this recipe and made myself some curd.
And let me tell you, it was DIVINE! And so easy to make!

We ate crepes full of the above yummy goodness.

Quote Of The Weekend ...

I spent some time on Saturday at my nephews
pirate birthday party. My sister did an amazing job on organizing and
made a fabulous cake ... which sadly I have no pictures of because I forgot my camera!

At one point I was drawing pirate beards and mustaches on the kids faces with eyeliner.
The only girl came to get hers and we had the following conversation ...

Me: Meagan, you are too pretty to have a beard!

Meagan: Some ladies just have beards.

Me: Good point, Meagan. Good point.

I Couldn't Help Myself ...

I have been an Orla Kiely admirer for some time.
Now that she is selling a line at Target,
I can justify purchasing a few treasures.
This weekend I snatched up a tablecloth in the pear fabric.
I love it.
It makes me very happy.

A New Fav ...

plus this ...

equals the most divine concoction

Thanks to Em for the suggestion
and Linnard for making me my first.

Dear Paula,

Something has come to my attention that I feel I need to share.

It has become obvious that your stylist hates you.
I mean REALLY hates you.
Why else would you make such horrendous fashion choices?

It is time to cut the cord and get someone new.

for my eyes' sake.

Thank you,

I Am Feeling Giddy ...

because it is almost summer,
and in my world that means a lot of
beach, pool, and airplane time
which equates to a lot of time to

(I think my obsession with summer reading began when I was little. 
My mom would make a poster
for each of us that had a place to write down 
100 book titles.
After we read all 100 books we got to go to
I became so obsessed with filling my list
that I began knocking out a Nancy Drew book a day!)

Because I woke up excited about it this morning,
I got out the books I have been collecting
the last few months to read as I lounge in the suns' warmth.

But I am feeling like this stack is not
nearly big enough to fill my insatiable summer reading habit.

What are some of your favs?
I will definitely be adding a few oldies to the stack, 
but would love some good recommendations.

I just finished reading "Gilgamesh" 
and loved it!
I couldn't put it down,
and it was such an interesting story.

Here is to summer and some great pool side reading!

I Wish Everyday Of My Life ...

was like this ...

Why Is It ...

that buying a new one of these
can bring me so much joy?

(especially when I get them in the Target dollar aisle!)

For The Grandparents ...

Here is a video of cutie pie Mia
sharing her new accomplishment ...

I don't know why it is sideways.
Sorry I am a tech lame-o.
But you can still see how adorable she is.

If You Live In Utah County ...

you need to stop by here.

Not only are the cupcakes yummy,
but the fudgy cake bites are to
I'm not kidding!
My sis called them 
"little Oreo bites of heaven".
And they are.

Check them out!
