I am sitting here, watching Dora with Desi as she eats breakfast. I am always intrigued by the song "The Map." Who made that song up? I mean really?

"If there's a place you gotta go,
I'm the one you need to know. I'm the map.
I'm the map, I'm the map.
If there's a place you gotta get,
I can get you there I bet. I'm the map.
I'm the map, I'm the map, I'm the map,
I'm the map, I'm the map, I'm the map,
I'm the map, I'm the map, I'm the map,
I'm the map, I'm the map!"

It's like someone was supposed to bring a new song idea to a meeting and forgot so they just made it up on the spot and the "Dora" people liked it.

Happy Easter

We hope everyone had a good Easter! Unfortunately, Mr. Bunny did not visit our house today. AnnaBelle has been pushing and pushing us lately and we warned her that if her attitude didn't change, then he wasn't going to visit. She now knows that we weren't kidding. Instead, he left her a letter that said that he gave us her presents and candy and she can earn them by listening and obeying. He also explained the real meaning of why we celebrate Easter. I am hoping she got the point. She has already been better. Maybe something will come in the morning. :)

Here are some pictures of our Easter celebration at Gram and Papa Revill's house. As you can imagine, they aren't hurting for sweets or toys.

Cute little Muffins!!
The 14 Grandkids!
Des hunting for eggs!
Bunny girl!

Does anyone out there watch The Celebrity Apprentice? We love The Apprentice in our house. Noah and I have watched it since season 1. We even have a little dance we do to "Money, Money" during the opening. :) The last two celebrity contestants are America's Got Talent judge Piers Morgan and country singer Trace Adkins. I love both of them but obviously am rooting for the good ole' country boy, Trace. The only thing I can't handle.........he brought into the world the song and lyrics to "That Honky Tonk, Badonkadonk." WHY TRACE WHY? Why would you write a song with lyrics like:

"At that honky tonk badonkadonk.
Keepin' perfect rhythm.
Make ya wanna swing along.
Got it goin' on,
Like Donkey Kong,
And whoo-wee,
Shut my mouth,
slap your grandma.
There outta be a law,
Get the Sheriff on the phone.
Lord have mercy,
how's she even get them britches on
That honky tonk badonkadonk"

Oh Trace. Again....I ask WHY!! But I'm still pullin' for ya Cowboy!

Des is learning sign language. She can sign "more," "full," and "please." Very cute and necessary. She has two deaf cousins that she will grow up with so it's important she knows it. She's a smart little cookie! AnnaBelle can also sign a lot of things. She's really good!

We are doing great. We miss everyone. It seems like we have been anti-social this past week. Maybe because my play ended and I haven't had much adult interaction. Wendy is up for Easter so that has been fun. Her daughter (my niece Kortnee,) cried when she found out that Amanda was voted off American Idol. Bless her heart for being Amanda's only fan. :)

I was tagged

Once again..... Tag you're IT!
Ok I was tagged. Thanks Les!

10 Years Ago:
I was 17, going on 18. I was a junior in High School. I was probably playing spring soccer, getting ready for the prom (I was the committee chair for 2 years,) and preparing for our Encore trip to San Diego, CA.

5 Things on my list to do Today
1. Order shoes from China
2. Clean the house
3. Go to my neighbor's house and practice a musical number I was asked to sing at the Young Women's New Beginnings. (Weird that they asked me cuz I'm not in YW anymore.)
4. Pick up 6 pizzas for my musical theater class that ends tonight. It's their final performance. They have done a great job. I will miss them!
5. Watch the Jazz kill the Raptors at Cyd's house with my entire family after my show

What would I do if I were suddenly a Millionaire?
Pay off the debt for our development. Give some to my parents, and each of my siblings. Give some to Noah's parents and his siblings. I'd run out fast too because there's a lot of them :). Get Baby Chicks to go global!

3 Bad Habits
1. Pulling out my eyelashes. I's a terrible habit.
2. Going to bed late
3. Eating too many creme vanilla wafers :)

5 Places I've lived
1. Lehi, UT
2. Saint George, UT
3. Cedar City, UT
4. Saratoga Springs, UT
5. Lehi, UT again

5 jobs I've had
1. Collating paper at Community Press
2. Subway
3. Secretary and Clerical work at Centaur Print Partners
4. Regional Account Manager/Customer Service Rep for Spanish clients at Access Development
5. Baby Chicks Co-Owner

5 things you may not know about me
1. I have broken my nose at least 3 times
2. I broke my tailbone in college in a tubing accident and had to walk with a cane and sit on a blow-up donut thing in class. My OBGYN thought we'd have to do c-sections because of it. It stills hurts :(
3. I hate to exercise. I have no excuse. I just do. Unless I am chasing a ball, I won't do it. I stay busy and that's how I exercise.
4. I have crushes on the following: Matthew Fox, Deron Williams, Justin Timberlake, and of course Ewan McGregor. Ah.....Ewan!
5. Someday I will try out for American Idol (I only have 2 more seasons and then I'll be too old) and be on Ellen and Conan. My dream is to host Saturday Night Live.

Where will I be in 10 years?
I will be 37 so I am sure I'll be done having kids. AnnaBelle will be 13 1/2, so we will be dealing with boys and hormones. I hope to have 5 or 6 kids. In reality, I will be a happy soccer mom, living in our dream house on our 11 acres by Thanksgiving Point. We will have our farm that we want. Baby Chicks will be successful.

In my dreams......I will be the most successful American Idol ever! I will record an awesome record and re-define the LDS music industry that drives me crazy! Baby Chicks will go global. We'll be on Oprah and then sell the business for Billions. Okay, back to reality. That was fun!

I tag Natalie Crocket, Hollie Christiansen, and Jesica Lindsay!!! :)


For some reason, I have been craving kabobs lately. Small problem though......we don't have a BBQ and it's freezing cold outside. Solution you ask???? Bake them! I bought some stew meat at the store, a zucchini, some bell peppers, and a chipotle marinating packet. I marinated the steak (you could easily do chicken or pork or fish) in the sauce while at church and then put them on the skewers and baked them at 375 degrees for 20 minutes. OH MY! Good stuff. Noah said they were blog worthy. So easy too. Just an easy dinner idea.

A new look

I was so excited when I found a blog template that I actually like. Thanks Ad for the tip! Sorry it's a copy! It's been fun updating it although I feel bad that my girls haven't had breakfast yet. They're happy playing :). Off to make waffles!!!

Random thoughts

American Idol......I don't even want to talk about it. I cannot believe that she made the Top 12. Are you kidding me America? I am sure you know who I am talking about.

How 'bout them Jazz? Not too shabby!

I don't understand Nascar. What's that all about?

Should I cut AnnaBelle's bangs? Can I perm or straighten my hair even though I bleach it? My hairdresser says yes but I am scared. I need either straight or really curly hair. My hair is just frizzy. RRRRR!!!!!

I love Conan. He makes me laugh. I also love Saturday Night Live. I laughed a lot on Saturday.

My new favorite movie of all time is Pride and Prejudice. I don't understand 1/2 of what they are talking about during it but it's great.

Stomach Flu

I am not sure what I have but uh.....I feel like crap. Des has bronchitis on top of it. Brick Oven is yummy on the way down but not so much on the way back up!

My Day

Today I......

Made clippies, headbands, and packaged 8 shoe orders from our website.
Went to the post office and shipped the orders. (We are working on having them picked-up from my house.)
Went to the doctor for Des (she has bronchitis.) Took forever.
Went to the Sprint store because my phone broke. Took forever but I finally left with a new cute phone.
Went to my mom's to show her the Miss Utah jewelry.
Came home.
Got an order ready from a shoe party we had.
Delivered the product to the shoe party hostess.
Updated blog.
Girls night at 5:30.
Come home late and crash!

In all of the chaos, I forgot to go to Costco and pick up Des' prescription before the pharmacy closed. Oops. I guess I'll go in the morning. Bad mommy!
