This Should Stay On The Down Low...

I am 99.9% sure that Justin Bieber has gone undercover,
and is hiding in Orem.

In fact he is working at Joann's Fabrics.
He talks like a girl
and has changed his name to Noel ...
but I swear it is him!

Or maybe he has a twin sister ...

(I really wanted to tell sweet Noel that she should seriously consider growing her hair out.
Bless her heart.)

I Am Back In The Desert ...

I am missing the balmy 75 degree California weather.

Yesterday the bank sign said 100 degrees as I drove by.
My skin is screaming for lotion,
my lips can't get enough aquaphor,
and I am guzzling water like a camel.

One thing is for sure...

I will ALWAYS be a California girl.

Dear Extremely Loud Woman At The Pancake Cottage This Morning,

Believe it or not,
People are here to eat breakfast.
They are not here to listen to your loud diatribe about the Kardashians and how Kris changed Bruce Jenners life.
We don't want to hear it.

(and how is it possible to talk about that for 30 minutes!?!?)

Really wants you to shut up so everyone can enjoy their breakfast in peace

To Kindle Or Not To Kindle ...

that has been the question.

I love to touch a book,
to smell a book,
to feel the pages under my fingertips.

I love to bend the spine back
and flip through the pages.

And so I didn't think that the kindle was for me.

Then my mom got one
and started raving.

My parents gifted me one for my birthday
last month,
and I actually LOVE it.

So convenient to purchase a book
while laying in my bed!
It is so easy to carry in my purse
and have hundreds of books at my disposal.

I will still buy books.
Real, tangible, hold in your hands and sniff

But I have jumped on the technology train and
I am enjoying it.

Are You As Excited As I Am?

I can't wait!!!!

Dear August,

I welcome you with open arms.
If I could,
I would give you a huge hug
and a noogie.

July was rough.
It brought
Girls Camp,
a dislocated tailbone,
youth conference,
a nutty work schedule,
a broken tivo,
and very little free time.

But you!
You bring the promise of
a girls weekend with one of my nearest and dearest,
a healed tailbone that allows me to bend at the waist again (!),
a 13 day vacation to Cali,
my toes in the sand,
free time to catch up on reading,
and the opportunity to sleep in!

I love you already.
Don't let me down!
