I'm alive!

Everyone keeps asking when I'm going to update my blog...so I'm doing it right now! But I'm not really writing anything because I'm leaving Cherilyn's (my sister) in a little bit. Just know that I'm alive and that I have a TON of pictures to post when I get back to the motherland (a.k.a. Provo). (How's that for a lame post. That's what you get for asking for it) :)

Nie Nie Auction

I know many of you inside and outside of he blogging world have heard of the tragic events surrounding the Nielsen family. On Saturday, August 16, 2008, Stephanie Nielson was in a plane crash with her husband, Christian Nielson, and his flight instructor, Doug Kinneard, near St. Johns, Arizona. Doug Kinneard passed away soon after arriving at the Maricopa County Hospital. Both Stephanie and Christian were severely burned in the accident. They are on the road to recovery, but still need help as they have four children and medical bills continue to mount.

QuicKutz, Inc. would like to help out in some small way, so is donating the ultimate Silhouette Package to be auctioned off to the highest bidder. Included is a Silhouette Digital Craft Cutter, vinyl in black, red, brown and white (perfect for vinyl wall art), 3 packs of transfer paper, scraper, universal hook, extra blade, a set of cutting mats and a $25 digital download card. Every last penny from this auction will go directly to the Nie Nie Recovery Fund. This package is valued at $600.

I am thankful for...

So I've been looking through some blogs and have noticed that a lot of people had posted about what they are grateful for in honor of Thanksgiving. Now I can't include everything, because that would take a LONG time! So here are a few.

  • Gas prices going down...$1.59 today!
  • "Perfect Pumpkin" scent from Bath and Body Works...I LOVE it!!
  • My car...I still love "Edward" :)
  • Harry Potter...I know I'm pathetic, but I just love those books. Though I did go on an HP fast for a couple of months, but I finally gave in on Sunday!
  • Nyquil...it got me through Thanksgiving break :)
  • My job...shocker, I know...but those kids just make me laugh every single day (maybe not ALL of the kids make me laugh, but I'm speaking generally)
  • My funny roommates...never a dull moment here!
  • Incredible friends...I don't know why I'm so lucky to have such amazing people in my life...but I'm not going to complain! :)
  • My family...oh goodness I love my family! I just wish we were all closer!!
  • Conference edition of the Ensign...what's not to love?
  • My testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ...I know I hear this a lot, but really I can't imagine my life without the church and my testimony of my Savior!
