I'm getting a little burnt out...

I have worked every day but one for the past 3 weeks. 
Some days both jobs even.
I need a day off.

I can't wait for Saturday!
Finally a day off!

And to top that off I am spending the day
at MY CABIN!!!!

I haven't been there since last August!

I NEED to go there.
Recharge, relax,
and get myself ready for more!

Maybe I will even see one of these!

Hope you all have a great weekend!

when we added on the front porch.)

New song

My good friend Scotty showed me this song a few weeks ago
Loved it at the time, but forgot about it

Then today it played no Pandora
and I love it all over again!

It is called Here Comes Those Eyes by Chris Rice

I just want a guy to feel this way about me
one the future..doesn't have to be soon

In The Sun

so as my good friends know
I tend to like the more sad
almost depressing songs
not really sure why...

Anyway lately that has not been the case.
I cant stop listening to the song
In The Sun by She & Him
on Volume 2

It is just a happy, feel good,
tap your foot type song!

Don't believe me just watch this video

Told you!
Enjoy and Happy Tuesday!

I want one of these

I have this love for records.
The sound of music recorded onto vinyl
is so soothing and classic to me.

Like the sound the needle makes when it touches the record,
or the turntable spinning,
I can't really explain it.

Most people who know this about me
think I am kind of wierd.
But I think it fits with my whole
"I should have been born in a different time"

I have this vision in my head
of coming home from work
turning on a record
and making dinner
or just relaxing
or dancing around my apartment

Playing a classic record like this

or a new one like this

or a fun one to dance to like this

Maybe for my birthday next month...

Sweet Home Alabama!

Yesterday I booked my flight to go see my sister and her family!

I am so excited! 
I went out there 2 years ago,
and they came out a few times since then
but it has been way to long!

The kids are getting so big!
It will be great to spend some one on one time with them!

July can't come soon enough!

Warning: You will most likely cry during the following

 A few months ago Kassidy introduced me to a blog.
It is called NieNieDialogues
and it is amazing.

Stephanie Nielson is a wife and mother who was in a
plane crash that left most of her body burned back in 2008.

Her blog is usually just short little updates about the small things in life.
Playing with her kids, making breakfast, taking care of the house,
but with each one she helps remind everyone that these are the most
important things in life, being with your family.

Well now she has done a video with Mormon Messages on YouTube
about this new life of hers.

Watch it, but like I said you just might need a tissue!
Then check out her blog sometime!

sorry part of it gets cut off, go here to watch it on YouTube

It SOLD!!!

So I listed my car on KSL this morning
(right after I posted my earlier blog post)
and within 5 minutes I was already having phone calls!
In less then 1 hour I had well over
20 calls from different people
plus over 200 page views on KSL!

I had two people who kept saying
they would pay me more
and finally I had to just say
the other people were already
on their way with cash, so its a done deal!

I sold it for $600 more then I listed it even.
Which is crazy to me!

It is kind of odd...
I loved that car!
And it has been in my family
for 10 years.
That is almost half of my life!

There was a time when I practically
lived in that thing!
(no really I did, shoes, make-up, clothes,
everything could be found in there!)
I know that I wanted it gone
and to get a new one
but I am still kind of sad to see it go.

Oh well guess its time for a new one!
Any suggestions?

Car Shopping!!!

I am looking for a new car!

My car has been such a good car,
and I have loved driving her,
but all good things must come to an end.
She has 220,000 miles
and need new tires in order to register her...

I am trying to sell her for a great price
and I know that someone will love her!
(and really she would be the perfect
run around town car for maybe a high-schooler?)

So this all means I am looking for a new car for me!
If you hear of any good deals,
or can recommend a good car
Let Me Know!!!
