I'm feeling better. Not completely Christmas-y but not so dark and gloomy and scary. So thats good!

I went shopping with my mom earlier and it was so nice to talk with her and get out some of my feelings, of course she has awesome advice and even some advice I think is dumb (mostly that she thinks I should wake up earlier, silly woman!) but she's one of the best people I know, so listening to her makes sense. (Except for the getting up earlier. That makes NO SENSE AT ALL.)

I have a busy weekend ahead of me. My cousin is getting married. I'm doing her hair, helping set up the reception, taking some bridal shots, and making like 500 asparagus roll ups. Pray for me that her hair turns out gorgeous.

I bought some of the Pepperidge Farms knock off Tim Tams. Pray for me that they're amazing. I'm going to need them.

I bought this potpourri spray that is really cinnamon-y and smells so good. I sprayed it on everything I could think of. Now its a little TOO smelly in here and I have a potpourri hangover.

Maybe I'm heartless but I didn't get that much out of Toy Story 3. I mean, I thought it was cute but honestly? They ARE just toys aren't they? I mean, is there supposed to be some sort of message about taking care of your toys? "Play with your toys kids or else they'll be sad!" or "If you accidentally lose one of your toys, they'll take over a daycare and make other toys miserable!!" I thought it was a little dramatic. Sorry.

I'm teaching Relief Society on Sunday, its about the sacrament. I wish I could just play this for them. I LOOOVE John Bytheway. Seriously. (By the way--OH MAN I'M soooo FUNNY!!--I saw him give this same talk live myself!--NO REALLY THOUGH, DID YOU GET IT??!!?--)

And I will stop here for tonight. Goodnight.


  1. LOL...I'm always tempted to write "by the way" together, like "Bytheway". That guy is great! This is going to sound ridiculous, but my friend's sister is marrying John Bytheway's nephew. I wish I could go to the wedding, just so I could see how he acts around family!

    Oh, and your mom is crazy for saying that you should wake up earlier. I woke up at 6am today.'s so miserable!

  2. I'm so glad to hear that you are feeling a little better and that you got out with your mom. That always helps me too! It sounds like you have a crazy busy weekend ahead of you. It sounds like a fun time though. Good luck with her hair and all the food you have to make! I'll cross my fingers for the hair!
    Oh... and good luck on your lesson too! I bet you do a great job!

  3. I teach that lesson next month...can't wait to make time too watch this. Thx!

  4. How have I never tasted a Tim Tam, fake or real?

  5. I like the PF Tim Tams. Apparently they ARE the real deal. They're just the only ones allowed in the US to make and carry them.

  6. Your mom is very wise and I'm conviced that getting up early is the key to being an organized mother. Having said that, I've woken up before my kids two, maybe three times in my parenting career. I'm not organized. I liked Toy Story 3, but as I was watching it, I felt like it was teaching kids to be hoarders.

  7. You can't go wrong with Pepperidge Farm. It will be great. And I know her hair will turn out to look gorgeous and beautiful and perfect. Have a great time!

  8. Holy crap, your Toy Story rant still has me laughing out loud! Too funny. I think the message was "Ken is not gay".

    I can't stand the smell of potpourri. I think it smells like old women working in stores full of trinkets.

  9. How did the wedding turn out??? Did people sniff you and say "Why do you smell so strongly of cinnamon potpurri that I'm reminded of old women in trinket stores?"

    Are you totally exhausted to the point that you can't teach RS? Good luck with it all!

  10. A Potpouri hangover...that's funny. What does one take for that......perhaps a fart to even it out.
    Always listen to your MOM....always....that's what I tell my kids. ALWAYS!!!

    have a merry wonderful Christmas.

  11. I'm sorry that you're not feeling so Christmasy. :( Those years are always hard. I hope things get a lot better and everything turns out great and you feel better soon. Hugs!

  12. I would love if you were my R.S. teacher, I can tell you would make it fun and spiritually uplifting as well.

    Have a Merry Christmas!

  13. I am glad you were able to talk out your feelings with your mom...who better!!
    Hope you are doing great!

    Merry Christmas!

    P.S. Big Baby still creeps me out!
