Andy won a travel voucher last year and we finally purchased a vacation to London, Paris and Rome. Europe now consumes my mind. Every day I think about what I need to make sure to pack, attractions we must see and Europe related applications I can download on my iphone.

Any suggestions on must - see attractions?

My friend Camille's little girl is such an attention getter. I walked her around for a little bit and was complimented, no lie, at least 10 times on how adorable she was. What a fun game! Once again, thanks Sherrill's for inviting us.

Thanks Meg for hosting the party. It was so much fun!
Pic Note: I'm still not sure why Michelle was smelling my butt.

For those of you that haven't tried these yummy bath and shower goodies, I want to let you all know that they are excellent. My friends bought me a box of supplies for my birthday and I am loving them. Go to and check out what they have.

At this time the media brings us daily news of more home foreclosures, companies filing for bankruptcy and higher unemployment rates. These are the times that I thank my Heavanly Father for blessing me; blessing me with Prophets who have been teaching us for years to prepare for these days, parents who have shown me that living beyond your means will only bring you short term happiness.

“If there is any one thing that will bring peace and contentment into the human heart, and into the family, it is to live within our means. And if there is any one thing that is grinding and discouraging and disheartening, it is to have debts and obligations that one cannot meet.” ( Gospel Standards, comp. G. Homer Durham [1941], 111.)
