Good Things Utah!

Last week my husbands sisters and his mom all went Good Things Utah! We had so much fun. My sister n law, Annie, got her cute Twilight shirts plugged on air. We even got our 15 seconds ( wait I mean 5 seconds) of fame with GTU only showing us at the end of the show in the audience.

One Crazy Weekend

This past weekend has been Crraaaaazzzzyyy!! Darren and I finally went on a date. It's been a long time since I can remember going on a date with just ourselves. It was soo nice to be with one another. I got all dolled up and ready to be with my babe. Darren took me to a Jazz Game. Which I always love going to. We decided to just eat dinner there and for dessert had these HUGE ice cream cones that I couldnt finish. All in all it was fabulous just to be with my sweety.
That following sunday Darren and I babysat for 2 nights my sister in law, Annie's kids. It was fun, but definatly not easy. The first night I decided we are just going to make pizza for dinner then wash up for bed. The kids loved helping me make a pizza, but Harrison (her 5 year old) asks me, "Where is the pepperoni?" I had to explain to him that it was sunday and I had to use what we had in the house. When the pizza was done those two kids devoured most of the pizza. I was suprised they ate so much. My nephew and nieces on my side eat very little. Harrison and Rex ate half a jelly roll pan sized pizza. WOW! The next day was monday and we decided to have FHE. We pulled out the friend and talked about an article in there. I think it was about helping out and being nice. The kids had fun and Darren and I had fun. We definatly are ready for kids, just one at a time. I didnt know if you knew this or not but kids are a handful! :)

Rex telling Darren during FHE, "You're so right Darren!" It was funny.

Election thoughts...

Hello all, this is Darren. I haven't posted here for months. However, I feel the need to "vent" a little about this election. What better place to do it than on a blog where the whole world can see it.

Here's my two cents on this whole election: Obama being our elected President isn't going to make the world end! Yes, there are certain key issues that I feel Obama has very little knowledge about (due to lack of experience). However, Obama isn't going to screw YOU. He isn's going to screw ME. Neither would have McCain if he were elected. Neither would have Joe Blow, had he been elected.

What happens to me and my personal life is 97% in my control, and 3% in the President's control. I'm serious about this! The last time I checked, I had complete agency to do whatever the heck I want to do, whenever the heck I want to do it, and however the heck I want to do it. There's a little something called "personal responsibility", and Obama isn't going to change that one bit. Yes, his decision making might slightly impact the economy and country as a whole. However, as I continue to live my life, this country will continue to give opportuinity to those who seek after it. Again, Obama isn't going to hinder me in this journey, nor is he going to motivate me to move forward. This is all a PERSONAL decision that if made out of careful judgement, I can achieve!

In other words, life is 10% what happens to you, and 90% how you react to it.

Heather and I will be just fine with Obama as President as will you, as messed up as some of his ideas may be. Life will go on, and as far as I'm concerned, Obama will have such little impact on my life as a whole that quite frankly, I'm not concerned at all.

I'm proud to be an American.

I love cupcakes!

I absolutely think cupcakes are the best thing out there. They look good, taste good, and fun to make. My only thing is I want to know if there is a good book with good recipes or a book or a website that has cupcake decorating tips. If anyone has any info for me leave a comment.
