What Every Woman Should Have And Know....

I saw this on a home decorating blog and it made me I thought I would share!

Every woman should have....

Enough money within her control to move out and rent a place of her own, even if she never wants to or needs to.

Something perfect to wear if the employer, or date of her dreams, wants to see her in an hour.

A youth she's content to leave behind. A past juicy enough that she's looking forward to retelling it in her old age.

A set of screwdrivers, a cordless drill, and a black lace bra.

One friend who always makes her laugh and one who lets her cry.

A good piece of furniture, not previously owned by anyone else in her family.

Eight matching plates, wine glasses with stems, and a recipe for a meal that will make her guests feel honored.

A feeling of control over her destiny.

Every Woman Should Know...

How to fall in love without losing herself.

How to quit a job, break up with a lover, and confront a friend without ruining the friendship.

When to try harder...and when to walk away.

That she can't change the length of her calves, the width of her hips, or the nature of her parents.

That her childhood may not have been perfect...but it's over.

What she would and wouldn't do for love.

How to live alone...even if she doesn't like it.

Whom she can trust, whom she can't, and why she shouldn't take it personally.

Where to go when her soul needs soothing; be it to her best friend's kitchen table, or a charming Inn in the woods.

It's My Birthday!!!!!

WARNING...I'm in a funny mood, so this is going to be a funny blog
(to me anyway)!
For those of you who watch How I Met Your Mother, you will get the title of this post!! On the last episode when Lily woke up she yelled, "it's my birthday!" So I have been yelling that the past 2 weeks...mostly just to see how much I can get on John's nerves! But really, my birthday was coming up! My 26th...other than my 16th was my best birthday EVER! I celebrated for almost 2 weeks straight!

It all started with a weekend in Vegas with a few of my AMAZING friends! My friend Abby and I went to the John Mayer concert...not sure if you've heard of him or not! Haha...I kid, I kid! If you're reading this then you definitely know who John Mayer is because I'm obsessed and want one of my babies to be his! (John is shaking his head as I'm reading this to him). As usual, he put on a FANTASTIC show! What made it even more fun was that I went with Abs. She loves him too, and had chills pretty much the whole show! I love when people get excited about things like I do. It makes LIFE so much more fun!! I have to say my favorite part of the concert was when he played Journey's Don't Stop Believin'. My in-laws love Journey and we love to tease them about John being conceived to this song! So when JM played it I laughed and recorded the whole thing! I'm sure our kids will tease us about being conceived to a John Mayer song someday! Karma, gotta love it!! My family/friends are getting annoyed with me talking about John Mayer. But I can't help it, he makes me so happy! A few days after I got back from Vegas I got an email announcing his Summer Tour. Guess who's coming to Salt Lake this Summer?! When I told my Grandma, she yelled at me. "Have you ever added up how much you spend to see this Mayer guy in concert?" I couldn't say anything. Everyone has something they spend their money on. My addiction happens to be concerts and I'm going see him every chance I get! What's the point of living if you aren't going to do what makes you happy?!

On Our Way....Yep, this is only for one night!!

A few of my favorite boys!!

Me and Abs!

The infamous "O" face...not sure how I feel about this!

Ooh La La!!
My Favorite picture I have taken of JM!!

The next weekend we went down to St. George to get away for my actual birthday and Easter. I got a wild hair and decided I wanted to go back to Vegas on Saturday night for my birthday dinner! So we drove an hour and a half to Vegas to go to Serendipity 3. The atmosphere was so much fun! It was hot pink and orange and everything I would have wanted for my birthday! The food was just okay, but the Frrozen Hot Chocolate was everything I wanted it to be!! John made my birthday very special this year. He even remembered that I told him I wanted Coconut Cupcakes from Mini's for my cake this year! If you haven't been to Mini's Cupcakes in Salt Lake, you're missing out. I highly recommend it!!

Can you imagine spending $1,000 dollars on dessert?!

Me on my 26th Birthday!!

The Famous Frrozen Hot Chocolate!!

Me and my yummy birthday dessert!!

Michelle bought me Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang for my far it is HILARIOUS!!!


Thank you to everyone who helped make my 26th a memory I won't ever forget!! I love you all more than you will ever know!

I heard about this a few years ago, but never in my worst nightmares would I have ever thought it was real. It couldn't be could it? John and I watched a documentary called The Cove a few nights ago and we were both in total shock the whole time. Please go to the website and educate yourself. John and I argue all the time about stuff like this. He doesn't feel like he needs to see it to know it happens and I say you have to see things like this to want to make a difference. It isn't real until you see it. You can rent The Cove at Netflix and I highly recommend it. You are pulled in the minute it starts. The more people that know about this and spread the word, the sooner it will stop. Go rent The Cove and post a link on your blog, facebook, twitter... or whatever it is you use. Please help make a difference!

I LOVE these Guys!!

If you know me, you know how much I love my dogs.
This is how I found them the other day. It made me laugh.

I love this picture, look at Milo's little butt!!
I love that it is hanging over the edge!
I think we need to stop giving him so many treats...but I love his chubby little butt, it's what makes him Milo!!

Some of you know Ash, some of you don't. For those of you who do, you will get this blog!

Some of my favorite things about you....

2. Your love for Philosophy!

3. You're a vegetarian that Hates most vegetables!

4. Your love for music! The numerous concerts we've been to together I will never forget! Coldplay and Ben Harper are two of the most memorable concerts of my life!

5. Your Suby! You love her so much that you didn't even think about trading her in when she needed a shit load of work done!

6. Your Brain! You're so smart...and you know it!!

7. You're Bossy! Often times when we are together we but heads because we both want things our way!!

8. And last but not least..... Your beauty!! I and so many other people think you are absolutely GORGEOUS! How it would be to pull off nothing but lip gloss!!

Ash, these are just some of the things that I love about you! I hope you get feeling better soon. I hate that you're too far away and I can't be there to take care of you. I've kept you in my thoughts and prayers every single day since we found out you were sick. Know that John and I are here if you and your family need anything. I will be on the next flight there if you need me! I love you and can't wait for you to be all better!!

My New Goal

Not like anyone reads my blog anyway, but I've decided my blog is like my journal. And I can look back at all of the things that I've done! So I'm going to try and blog at least once a month about what happened that month. To start it are some highlights of 2009!!! I went to LOTS of concerts!! Surprise Surprise! I saw Rascal Flats, Britney Spears, No Doubt, The Offspring, 311, Incubus, The Fray, Matisyahu, Kenny Chesney, and to finish off 2009's concerts, John surprised me and took me to Vegas for New Years to see JOHN MAYER Trio!!! It was so much fun, and I almost met him! I was close enough to touch him which is enough for me!! I went to Denver to visit Ashly and had a blast! John and I went to Cali and had way too much fun! We took a tour of Hollywood that I will never forget! We went to Disneyland and Newport Beach. I plan on living there someday!! 2009 was a great year with lots of great memories! Some of these pictures won't mean anything to anyone else but me, but that's okay!! Hope you enjoy my 2009 highlights!! Happy Late New Year! I hope everyone has a great 2010!!!!
