If You Haven't Heard of Katie Herzig Listen Up.
If you have never been fortunate enough to scroll to the bottom of my blog and be serenaded by the melodious tones of the fore mentioned Katie Herzig do so immediately!!! Because my cohorts she is coming....... And as my usual partner in crime is making the white north a little bit more sexy, I would turn to my truest friends. But Lauren took to the desert and Devon decided she loves O.C. Living more then me, and Anne doesn't do Sundays. I want everyone I know that this concert is coming so that we can all enjoy the sunshine and awesome tunes and eat ice cream. Come, Come, Come and join me.

Well we have two dogs Gingee Marie, and Whini Jane, Whini is a pudgy lazy bum and Gingee is a robust explorer. So on the tragic day of May 16 Gingee ran away....for the 40th time. It's not that she doesn't love us she just wants to explore, and she knows we always find her...... This time we couldn't find her.
We search for hours, she ran away at 7:30 a.m and when me and Chris finally recieved the messages from Chris's Mom who was babysitting it was 2:00 p.m by this time there was no sight of our fluffy blond pup, we were both positive she would never be seen again. Chris's mom and Dad tried to comfort us, and we tried to stay positive saying how we would search the pound tomorrow and I would post for a lost dog on craigslist. but the truth was a small sweet dog like Gingee would find a new home fast and if someone found her they probably wouldn't give her back or look for her owner.
The next day though Gingee was back!!! Sauntering in the front door like she'd never been gone. Not to mention, she was washed and had a haircut. Sweet Whini who had been a nervous wreck all night was OVER JOYED to see her, as were we all. Gingee was so glad and now is so good when we let her out to pee she won't leave the front yard anymore.
So thanks mystery person for bathing my dog, she smells real nice now, and for making her afraid to run away.

The script is written and directed by the talented Matthew Vaughn who gave us Layer Cake and stardust both great movies i suggest watching. He again brings us his own style of British, rock, glam, gangster. but this time it's in young America. It's the story of a bumbling, young, naive boy who does indeed kick ass. It's full of the usually crude language and raunchy jokes, and gratuitous violence. But it's got sophisticated, intelligent dialog and rounded characters and kick ass special effects. Christopher summed it up Kick Ass= Kill Bill+Superbad.
I'd go into the use of symbolic colors the purple in kick ass's room, the impeccable casting and the flawless script. but i will simple state that it is worth a money!!!
A lot of people have commented that a trailer "is lame" and yes i agree it leaves you second guessing the validity of this film, but do not be deceived the trailer shows NONE of the good parts. it's like a foil wrapped chocolate your dubious but unless you bite in you'll never know that it was your favorite.

This my friends is a little taco shop we all like to call......... Diego's.
Christopher takes me here once in a while to share a plate of flautas and a diet coke. WE LOVE DIEGOS we have a fun time. People watching with the mixture of Indie kids and work professionals. Most the staff is completely incompetent and will get your order wrong but once in a while you'll get lucky and get the boss who when you ask for "Whats best on your menu" will tell you "I'm the owner,everything's good here" so since i have yet to have anyone tell me whats best at Diegos i will tell you. Beef flautas, Chicken Burrito, and carneasada supreme.
So today to celebrate moving out of our apartment we mozied on over to our favorite taco shop and ordered super delicious food and enjoyed people watching and a soccer game. It's nice to have a few good days with Chris before he takes off for the "Great White North" But seriously guys i wrote this post so you will all go it's so cheap and cute and Fantastically flavorful. nachos.
Diego's is never stingy with the portions and amazing sauces. they are the only Mexican place i know that give you free sour cream and salsa "LOVE IT" as my sister Katrice says"Who wants Mexican food if you can't have the condiments."
tasty tasty tasty tasty tasty tasty tasty tasty tasty tasty

Christopher and I have been hanging out a lot with Elle and Finn.
Between the games of "sorry" and "slamwich". We have been having a really good time. Today we went to Provo Canyon and threw rocks in a pond, and played freeze tag. Winifred and Ginger were having such a good time they ran wild, Winifred was sooo tired out that she fell asleep, half in the pond.
( guess you can't really see but Winifred's whole butt is in the water it made her very happy)
we played freeze tag for so long I forgot how fun it is.

It's been 3 years....3 YEARS since I began my search. What have I been searching for you ask? What have I been so obsessed with. What has exhausted me to the point I cry once a year because I can't find it? "The prefect duvet." I have been looking for this resplendent, illusive duvet cover since before Christopher asked me to marry him. If you didn't know this now you do: My passion is bedding; down comforters, goose down pillows, 1000 count Egyptian cotton, and memory foam. When I decided to get married all I asked for were sheets. Christopher thought he'd break me of my habit, he thought he could change me. But he was wrong, and now guess who steals all my comfy pillows and hogs my comfy blanket, ...Chrisssssssss. When I met him he didn't know what satin was. And now he can't sleep with out a foam bed and 4 down pillows. But my search for perfection has gotten to a dangerous point. I Can't search any more so I am posting some of my favorites and if you would pity me and tell me which one is the prettiest i would be SO appreciate it.
Also I need an option, is yellow and grey too trendy? It can't be too trendy ....since it's impossible to find.
the last photo is one one Chris wants. ....
I've been searching a long time, is it too much to ask for a duvet cover with fabric flowers, embroidered birds, and watercolor designs? If anyone finds that it would be amazing. preferably grey, white,yellow,and blue. PLEASE HELP. if I can't find one I will have to make one.....
