Blogs I Love

Yesterday [Revisted]

Here's just a few pictures from the special day...

Thanks Nan for the cake and taking the pictures!

One Year Older, and Wiser Too!

{Well I don't know too much about that last part} but it's my Birthday today, a most joyous event!! An event that I have shared for 23 years with my brother Troy!! I have many fun stories I could share about my/our lives thus far... but I thought I would just share some fun pictures of us groooowing up...

P.S. Special thanks to my sister Tami for always doing my hair the way I liked it, fluffy.


I can't believe I went through the Thanksgiving season without even giving an ounce of thanks, well as far as you know... But I am thankful for so many things and opportunities I have in my life... I am blessed with an adorable hubby, an amazing immediate family, some darn fun in-laws and very crazy friends!

Would needs anything else?

**Well maybe food, but after Thanksgiving even I might rethink that!

P.S. Here's a picture of Tami & I [We were on a date] at Highschool Musical [The Ice Tour, as Kole says]... Because I had no children or husband to photo, I have no photos...but Tami does!! Go here to see more.

Thanksgiving Highlights

Highlight #1 - After eating not one, but two Thanksgiving meals (all within 3 hours) we played Mexican Train with Todd & Jill. This is always good for some laughs, mostly because Adam and I always lose!

Highlight #2 - I have a bunch I can say about this event, but just know I went with my sisters, had fun, and survived!

Highlight #3 - The Preston Light Parade... here is Adam, Scott, Nan, Becca, Ash, Josh... We were all bundled up because it was WAAAAAY to cold! Thanks Nan, it was a fun idea to go!

Highlight #4 - Spending time with my Best Friends, Brooklyn, Baylie, and Brinlee... also the newest edition not pictured here is Hadley, she's to young to know it now, but we'll be Best Friends, I just know it! I love my family and it is just fun to hang out with them...we also have a tradition of going to a movie the Saturday after Thanksgiving, we saw Fred Claus, it was a cute Holiday movie.

Happy Turkey Day!

In Case You Were Wondering...

**Albeit I am sick and YES, I do have amazing amounts of time, so DEAL with it!

What The....?

{As my cute nephew Davis says} is wrong with the Bachelor Brad? I mean seriously... you choose no one? SERIOUSLY? At one point, I thought he would say bring back Jenny, but no he sends both of them packing... I also thought maybe he'd choose Chris Harrison, but no, not that either, it figures. The women of the world waste their lives EVERY Monday to see who would get a rose, only to be let down in the end. Boo.

High School Musical [The Ice Tour]

On Saturday I "Bop Bop Bop-ed, Up to the Top" and "Got My Head in the Game" with my family at the High School Musical [The Ice Tour] in Salt Lake City. Am I embarrassed? Not in the least! Would I do it again? Without hesitation...It was awesome!

This is the Final Countdown...Black Friday!

A week from today is Black Friday, I don't know why I participate in such things, I don't have children and I hardly ever buy anything...but something draws me there. I am pretty sure it is the crazy-ness that comes out of people, they are truly at their worst when it comes to the day-after Thanksgiving shopping, especially the old ladies at Jo-Anns and I love it!! See ya there!

It Was Meant To Be...

I am a complete gamer! I love to enter all sorts of contests, my junk-mail folder can vowge for me on this one... but I found this cute holiday contest where you can enter to win these cute 12 days of Christmas Plates from Rosanna. You just go to this blog here for all of the information... and you can also check out all of the cool ideas the blog has for decorating and enter some of the other contests.

**Also, I have recently been inspired to divulge 12 Days of Confessions before Christmas in order to get on Santa's goodside, they will be good, just you wait.

A Birthday Success! [Yesterday]

Well ok, I forgot the 2 candle and then I broke the 8... but all in all it was a success!

Thanks to all who participated in person, phone calls, or spirit!!

**Also, thanks to Nan for taking pictures on her iPhone!

Sharing My Secrets, Or Something Along Those Lines...

I am feeling quite Techno-Savy lately... or I must because it's all I've posted about. But here's a fun new thing that will change the picture next to your blog address/URL... Mine is picture to the left...DW=Donswife! But ok you go to this website http://www.myfavatar.com/ and sign-up and then post a picture that you would like to be your picture, then enter in your blog info and last post this little bit of code into your blog HTML...

Google Reader

For anyone who doesn't know just how amazing Google really is, let me tell you. They have this newer thing out, or maybe I just never knew about it, called Google Reader. And if you are addicted to blogs like me it will make your life 10x easier!! You just go to http://www.reader.google.com/ and sign in with your Gmail account and then you can 'subscribe' to your favorite blogs, or if you are like me every blog you come in contact with. You just type in the URLs and then when the blogs are updated it will let you know next time you log in. Amazing, huh?
I love it!!

Will It Blend?

Yesterday for a thing at school I went to this Viral Marketing presentation from a Utah-based company called Blendtech. I won't bore you with all the logistics but it was awesome. The company started out small and had no money for advertising so they used YouTube and other things like it to get their message out. They did these segments called "Will it Blend?" Which basically they took all sorts of random things and blended them... the speaker was going to blend a rake at the end of the presentation, but I had to leave early to go to class, boo. So later I went to YouTube and found this video of them blending an iPhone, the guy at the presentation told us they sold the blended iPhone on e-Bay for $1,000... crazy huh?

P.S. Sadly the guy in the video above was not the featured speaker!

Happy Voting...

I Got Tagged...

I got tagged by my sister-in-law Jill, I am very bad at these things but haven't had much else to blog about so I will give this a go...

6 Things People Don't Know About Me...
[I guess I am doing it in a count down deal]

6- I love reality TV shows... I think I posted this before, but if there is a show that claims to show REAL people doing REAL things... I am in... no questions asked... especially shows like the bachelor... because it's so REAL, the feelings are just REAL!
**however, the one exception to the rule is Survivor; I don't watch Survivor at all!!

5- I love to Gossip...that's bad I know but I think I acquired this skill from working in the Dental Industry... I mostly love knowing gossip about people I don't know because if I don't know them I am less likely to spread it... justifiable I guess?

4- I hate shopping for clothes... unless I am with my sisters, I would never just go to the mall or anywhere else like that by myself and buy something... I need motive.

3- I like to dance when no one is watching or if they are [neighbors to the south]... especially on the wood floors in our kitchen, I do all sorts of turns... even about broke my foot once... That was done after watching Dancing With The Stars.

2- I love to read, ha! I just haven't really read anything for fun since I've been in college [I feel guilty neglecting all of my college books], but I used to read all sorts in high school and I am counting down the days until I can read for fun again... May 2008.

1- I love fabric... I will go to Jo Ann’s on a bad day and just look and feel fabric... and dream of all the things I could sew... it really helps!! My day after Thanksgiving includes waiting in the freezing cold with all the old ladies at Jo Ann's for $1 flannel...that's right flannel.

Sorry some of these are lame and some people already know some of these things, hopefully by now Adam Don knows all of these things... I am supposed to tag 6 people but I won't unless there are people out there who want to do this.... just let me know if you do so I can read it!!
