You Know You've Lived In Utah Too Long When ...

after days of gross weather,
the sun comes out and it is only 39 degrees,
but feels SO warm that you bust out your flip flops!

It makes me really sad that 39 degrees has become warm weather to me!

If You Loved "Gilmore Girls", "Roswell", And/Or "Dawson's Creek" ....

then you will LOVE this new show!

(Plus, it stars Liz from "Roswell", Jack from "Dawson's" and
the cute daughter from "Dan In Real Life" !)

Are You As Excited As I Am?

the Ski Jump,
speed skating

with my boyfriend Apollo.

I LOVE the Olympics!

My New Fav ...

I have been listening to this pretty much non stop
for the past few weeks.
I love her voice,
and I love her songs.
They make me happy!

Just A Thought ...

I saw this for sale in the $1 aisle at Target today.

Just a thought ...
But I'm pretty sure that you have diabetes
you should probably talk to a doctor
rather than get your info from a book that costs
$1 and has the word "dummies" in the title.

I'm just sayin' ...

A Little Humor For Today ...

This made me laugh ...

Dear Butter Lettuce,

You are my favorite kind of lettuce.
You are good in salad, on sandwiches, or in a wrap.
Thank you for being delicious.

My Idea Of The Perfect Rainy Day/Comfort Food ...

is grilled cheese and tomato soup.

How adorable are these?
Little grilled cheese triangles with tomato soup shots.
I will make these for a party someday.
I love things even more when they are miniature!

Internet Shopping Entertainment ...

Last night I went to a new website that I was recommended to
by Better Homes and Gardens.
I was led there because in the magazine they had an article about
reusable shopping totes.
And ...well...
My name is Melissa and I am a reusable tote - aholic.

I can't help it when I see these.
I have to have them!


Are they not adorable?

But, then I came across this ...
Is that Michelle Obama on a swing?

And then in the sidebar it said that people who bought this
also bought this ...

The description says
"To rid your car of the Republican smell".
Do Republicans smell?
My favorite part is that it is vanilla scented.
Oh, the irony!

So, I decided to peruse the website a little further to see what treasures I could find.
And, OH did I find some!

Like these Cat Butt magnets!
The description says "Everybody loves a cat butt!"
I beg to differ.
I would rather shove a sharpened pencil in my eye,
then stare at a cat butt every time I open my fridge.

But, wait ...
Here come the doozies...

Lookin' Good for Jesus Bubble Bath,
wait for it ...

"heavenly scented" moist towelettes that apparently
wash our sins away.

Who knew?!?

Dear Trader Joe's,

I love you.
Will you move to Utah so we can be close to each other?
I promise to visit at least once a week.

One More Reason Why I Should Live In California ...

Today, January 4th, it was

74 degrees

and I wore short sleeves and flip flops.

I may never leave.

I've Been Busy ...

playing with the new toy I got for Christmas.

I got a digital photo scanner!
And I love it!
I have been going through all of our old family photos,
scanning them and putting them on my computer.
It is so nice to know that I can save them before they fade even more,
and it is great that it makes them so easy to access.
It's been fun to walk down memory lane and remember the good ole days.

Like this photo of my sister and I performing our critically acclaimed lounge act from the 90's
(Clang, clang, clang went the trolley ...)

or this picture from the days when I worked as a clown.

I can't wait for all the fun things I can do with all these pictures at my disposal!
