A New Beginning

Bless your sweet mistakes,
That crumble you down to your knees.
That brought you to this place
Changing you by degrees…
When change was just what you needed. ~ Ellis Paul

I saw this and it really fits right now for me.

Time to Jam

I'm so proud of my friend Jen and her band. She writes some of the most amazing music. She sounds alot like Fiona Apple but with more attitude. They did a little show at one of their houses and invited their closest friends. I photographed the event. They hadn't played in public so everyone was excited to see what they had for us. After they were done my girls and I took it upon ourselves to keep the music going. It was a good night.

Todays Shoot

My dear friend jaquie, a.k.a "the mermaid" and I went on adventure today. It was magical to say the very least. I missed my dads pot roast dinner but hey, anytime I can get out and take pictures I'm going.

Yoga at the Park

Last night we did yoga at freestone park. It was awesome. There wasn't anyone there to bother us, well, except for the group of skater boys yelling "ooooommmmm!" "peace!" as they passed by. It was funny.

The cons about large rings

I was Wrestling with Larz and this is what happened because my ring is so freakin big and dangerous. I'm not even a jewelry loving type girl really. I love what the ring symbolizes, and I love the effort he put into it but I really don't care about diamonds. Sometimes I wish he would've just picked a flower and wrapped it around my finger. Then this could've and would've never happened. Poor guy.

The new way to grochery shop.

I found a new world at my grocery store after going with my ipod. It seems like there is no one around but me and the food and my music. I was groovin and didn't even realize how obvious it was until I noticed a mom and daughter staring at me. Did I stop? No way.

To sum it up, I have felt like smashing myself over the face with a glass bottle and hoping I just bleed to death. This is the sickest I've been in years. And it doesn't help that Rob calls me Rudolf.

I just finished the 4th book of the twilight series. I think obsessed would be an understatement for the way I feel about these books. The fourth book is SO good. I am aching for more! I read that she is writing a 5th based on Edwards point of view instead of bellas. I also just saw the 2nd trailer teaser. I seriously cannot wait to see this movie. I just cannot tell you how anxious I am just to dive as deep into this as I can. sigh. Edward, I love you.

Simply Angelic.

Wednesday, August 6, 2008


I just got home from an amazing bike ride around town. I've had this bike since I was 18. Its called "the panther". I begged my parents to buy it for me after I moved to Cedar City Utah. (so beautiful there) I put my ipod on and took off. It was windy and beautiful outside. I rode down a steep hill at a park nearby and yelled the whole way down and then griped the whole way up because its steep and hard. Then I sat and watched the lightning make its marks throughout the town. I rode everywhere. Then, after my quads were screaming at me to stop and rub them I rode to my friend amys pool and dove right in. I stayed under water and just enjoyed the silence. I floated and looked at the stars. I sang. I just enjoyed everything. Then when I got home I couldn't find rob. I looked in the backyard and saw a purple light. He was scorpion hunting. (This was because earlier that day I saw Larz playing with a role of paper towels in the hallway and when I bent down to take it from him there was a scorpion on the square next to his hand. I freaked out to say the least.) He had already killed over a dozen of them! A DOZEN in my yard. I sat on our swing and just laughed while he cursed at them for stinging him in bed that one night. If you have never taken time to ride a bike and listen to music, please do. Its magical. And if you have a scorpion problem, get an ultra violet light and go hunting.

Typical Day with a Toddler

My day starts out with Larz at the breakfast table eating his bananas and pancakes. Except he's not the only one eating. The floor is eating, the table is eating, his shorts are eating, the wall is eating and even my face is eating too. Its a feast let me tell you. Then I clean up his syrup ridden face and hands and let him loose. Throughout the day he is climbing, opening doors, opening the fridge, climbing in the dishwasher, pushing on the water machine letting water go everywhere then slipping and crying, putting things in the toilets, you name it, he's doing it. His new favorite thing is to climb up on the couch when we aren't looking and turn the faucet on. It flooded our kitchen the other night a little. (I wasn't home thats why ha) Anyways. I can't have anything nice, cute, or anywhere near the floor because Godzilla will ruin it. I made him pay today. I made him clean. I still love him to death but sometimes I just want to put him in a dog kennel.

I'm shallow.

I'm shallow because I won't allow my child to wear over-alls. I wont let him wear any form of bear on any of his clothes, any animal of any kind. I'm shallow. I wont let him wear Velcro shoes, or high tops. Rob put him in this today and you should have seen my face. (it was accompanied with an "oh no you didn't") No offense to the mothers out there that do dress their kids in over-alls and winnie the pooh stuff and velcro shoes. But my child will never wear any of it. :) Again, I'm shallow.

The beatles.

There is only one word I can think of when I think of The Beatles. Genius. One of my favorite things about them is the fact that they let change occur in their music and it was for the better. I love it when musicians go through phases. Its growth to me. I'm not interested in their early stuff when they had bowl hair cuts and sharp English matching suits on. I like the guys walking across Abby road looking like Jesus and wearing bell bottoms. That in my opinion is when the magic started happening. The Beatles are truly one of the best bands to ever unite and create music in such a mind blowing way. I just can't get enough of them. I went to a special exhibit a while back in scottsdale. IT was a gallery dedicated to John Lennon. I saw actual poetry from him encased in glass. I saw drawings and lyrics never to be heard. It was incredible. He was such a crazy genius. The one thing that really ruffled my feathers was that Yoko Ono signed EVERYTHING!!! Ridiculous. I was watching a documentary on the Beatles and I just Love that band. I just learned black bird on my guitar too with more to come. I'm so proud. Now only if I could get up to Vegas and see the Cirque De Solie show.

anyone can be a star

I thought this was a joke but this girl is for real. My friend is obsessed with so you think you can dance and she showed me this last night. I laughed so hard and then did my best rendition of her performance. It was outstanding.
