She is the oldest.
She graduated from USU.  She's married.
She owns a house and she has 2 kids.

Then there is a brother.
He is the only boy.
He graduated from the US Naval Academy.
He has a really good job.
He's married.
He owns a house and has a new baby.

Then there is me,
She has a job at a hospital.

Then there is a sister
She is the baby.

They are looking for a home to buy in Arizona.
Her husband is going to school to become and Architect.

If you were to ask anyone in my family, extended family or anyone who knows my family, that is how they would describe us kids... Sounds pretty great, huh?

I'm Leavin...

On a Jet Plane...

Yes, It's true.
My birthday is coming up, so I treated myself,
(to quite a few things, but who's counting)
to a trip to the good ol'
Midwest aka Utah.

It's going to be fabulous.
My sista and her kids will be there
and any time with my Aunt, Uncle and Grammy is a good time
and maybe my cousin (hint Lindzee)

I've been watching flights for awhile and finally
booked one for a pretty good price.
The prob?
My Gram is about 2 hours north of SLC
so someone would have to drive 8 hours r/t to get me to and fro...
Terrible, right?

One of the many perks of my job is
enrollment in
There aren't too many things I would actually use on there
but I remembered they had one for Avis!

I logged on, checked it out and gave them a call.
I got a fabulously low rate and on top of that
3rd day free
on to of that
$25 off!!
I am under 25 so most places charge and extra $15 to $25 per day
on top of all the other bogus fees.
But not with a "corporate rental."
So I scored BIG time (less than a hundo) and everyone gets to
spend more time together!!

Thanks Anaheim Regional!

Utah, here I come!

November Birchbox

I've been waiting for it for awhile
so when I discovered that it would be delivered today I couldn't hardly wait!

 that are hand picked for you
and delivered via mail once a month.   
The products you receive could be anything from

Peanut Butter Brownies

I love this blog... I'm convinced that each time I visit it, I gain at least 5 pounds.  When I saw these brownies I knew I wanted to make them, so I did and I took them to work.  I found that my job is really good for my baking desires because I can bake the most fattening delicious treats, leave a few for my mom and I then pass the rest off.  Here's the scoop!

One box brownie mix.  I used the Betty Crocker Original Supreme type.  Mix and bake as directed.

Peanut Butter Filling:
Two cups powered sugar.
One stick softened butter
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
2 teaspoons milk (I used 3)
Mix in a medium bowl with electric mixer until smooth.  Once brownies are cool spread filling over the top.  I used my hands, it was way easier than using the spatula.  (Wash them first though, yo.)

Chocolate topping:
One cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 stick butter
Combine in a microwave safe bowl and microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until melted.  Smooth over the top.

Put in the refrigerator to allow the chocolate to firm, remove about 20 min prior  to serving.

Sneak Peak

I'm revamping my room.  It's taking me a LONG time.  I'm lazy.  This is some pretty sweet fabric that I'm including in some secret way.

A few years ago I was introduced to a website, Buzzagent.  It is a website where you can sign up to be on different Marketing campaigns and they send you a kit.  You use, try, taste or whatever, the item and pass on to other people the product, or tell them about what you have tried.  Simple.  This is one that I just signed up for and received in the mail today.  Did I mention that this is a free site?

Halloween Twenty-11

I spent Halloween this year in the Bay Area.
One of thee BFFs, Jennie,
is a born and raised San Fransiscian?  But more specifically from
Oh, sounds familiar? That's because it's the home of Apple.
Anyways, we got there in the AM and went to a mall by Stanford University.
Lot's of rich people, everywhere.
I got my makeup done at MAC and then we headed to check into our hotel.
On our way there we got side tracked by Panera, it's easier than you think,
and Target.
We stayed at The Cypress Hotel and it was RUHeal nice.
After Jennie and I got dressed in our non-Halloween clothes we went to pickup some ladies.

I ended up doing Sheena and Claires makeup and Sheena's hair
and we had a lot of fun in the process,
but I'm not giving any details.

We headed out to dinner at The Elephant Bar
and then went to thee party.
Fun was had by all, I promise.

Until next year,


I think I have caught the Ilovetopaintmyfingernails bug from thee BFF.  My newest addition to my OPI collection...
