The Office!!!!

All hail the return of The Office! Who watched it????

Here are my favorites:

Dwight- "I'm going to randomly select three names, and these three people will get liposuction...okay......Stanley, Phyllis, Kevin....and you will be responsible for your own medical expenses."

Kelly- "I'm on the 3rd day of my cleanse diet. All you have to do is drink maple syrup, cayenne pepper, lemon juice, and water for all three meals. I just bought some bikinis online, size 2 so....I'm gonna look amazing."

Jan-"Remember last week when that girl went missing? Guess who's candles they used for the vigil?"

There are so many more!!!! What was your favorite quote or part??

Here's my favorite of all time! (I am apologizing in advance for the language.) Sung to the Oompa Loompa song.

"Oopma, Loompa, Doopidy Dawesome,
Dwight is now gone which is totally awesome!
Why did he leave he was such a nice guy?
No he was not, he was a total douche. Doopidy doo."

Ha ha! Yes! Now you.....go!

In memory

Baby the dog passed away 5 years ago. I know it may seem lame but I loved that dog. She was the closest thing I had to a child at that time in my life. She came into our family when I was 7 years old and passed away when she was almost 17 years old. I still miss her and think about her all the time. She was a good dog!

On that note....I still have a cute chihuahua pup available if anyone wants her. She's super cute and almost potty trained. :)

From the mouth of babes....

AnnaBelle-"Mommy, is the baby in your belly a boy or a girl?"

Me- "Sweety, there isn't a baby in my belly."

AnnaBelle-"Are you sure? It's fat enough for one to be in there and it's soft."

Awesome! My kid just told my I'm fat. Where's the nearest gym? Oh's a block away!

Our booth

We've had a few requests to post pictures of our booth. Here they are for your viewing pleasure...

Emily and Sarah (good job mom for making such cute girls!)
Our chicken coups

Cyd getting ready to make a major sale!

We duct taped the grass to the roof and they fell of mid-day. Maybe that's why we didn't win the award this year. Hmmmm....

BTW, if the "Chick it out" signs look familiar...yes....they are from the Target Easter line. Nothing like getting free signs from Target. :)

Remembering 9/11

I will never forget the way I felt when I watched the news 7 years ago. What was happening? I couldn't believe this was real. 6 days later, I boarded a plane heading to Newark Airport, across the harbor from New York City. We had this trip planned for months. We were going to Altantic City, NJ for the 2001 Miss America Pageant. We also planned to visit Philadephia and New York City. We headed for New York and I will never forget the people of that city. The fliers of missing people posted all over. Yellow ribbons and posters showing support. Dust and debris every where. Seeing the volunteers come and go from ground zero. Those who had just finished searching after many hours were tired and down. Those who were going in were optimistic to find someone in the rubble. The air was hard to breathe. Cars and buildings were shaken and damaged but the spirit and hope I felt in that city that day will never leave me.

I will never forget.

To move or not to move?

We are in a crazy moving situation right now. The bank wants us to sell something to prove that things are moving along on our 13 lot subdivision. Since NOBODY is buying right now, our solution is to sell the spec home that has been sitting up there in a construction loan to us. Weird? I know but that's what we need to do. We posted our current home on KSL for rent (the downstairs and the apartment upstairs.) Within a day, we had both of them set up for renters. Then today, someone showed interest in the spec home for the first time in 9 months. We are so confused as to what to do. Thinking of moving made me sad but really excited at the same time. I would love a new house with actual closets but I am sad to leave this great ward and neighborhood and I absolutely LOVE my house. My Beehives took the news pretty badly tonight but I assured them that everything will work out and things happen for a reason. So, I guess we will see if the people will buy the new house but then we don't know what to do about the renters. I guess....we'll just see. In the meantime, I am starting to pack the non-essentials. Moving is great fun :(
