Did I mention that my daughter is getting married?

Life is so crazy and i realized that i haven't even blogged that my elise is getting married. um, soon.... like in two and a half weeks. Yeah... may 15th. I'm very excited for her. she needs this. she needs a place to call her own and to feel like she belongs somewhere. she kind of got lost in our move to AZ and didn't have the best of college experiences at snow. she's been with brock since last june and he is just the best. we all love him and he treats her like a queen. they hadn't found a ward that they called their own so haven't been super active in the church, so will be looking forward to a temple marriage in one year. and it's ok. he served a mission to Jamaica and is an awesome guy. i know they will get sealed in the temple. we will be heading to utah for the festivities and are looking forward to seeing lots of friends and family.

My dads doing great and got his treach taken out and a smaller tube put in so now can talk. i'm so proud of him.

Life is good..........

Another Day, Another Movie

*BOUNTY HUNTER* PG-13. Jennifer Anniston and Gerard Butler, who I really like. It was pretty good for the most part. Slightly predictable and kinda cliche'. Dragged a little, but it had some good parts too. I'm giving it 3 diamonds.

*OUR FAMILY WEDDING* PG-13. America Ferrera, Forrest Whitaker, Carlos Mencia, Lance Gross. It was actually really funny. We laughed alot and it was enjoyable and cute. I think you will like it. 4 diamonds.

Another Day, Another Movie

****ALICE IN WONDERLAND****PG-13. Saw it on the I max in 3-D. I must say I thought it would be more colorful and more interesting. Though I'm not a huge Tim Burton fan I did like it, didn't love it. I guess I was expecting too much. I thought Johnny Depp would have had a bigger part. His character was pretty much as I was expecting. It was alright. Not great. Kinda scary and dark, but fun at times. Wow, how's this for a totally contradiction in reviews. 3 diamonds.

Another Day, Another Movie

*VALENTINES DAY* PG-13. I couldn't wait to see this movie because of the all-star cast. I really did like it. Ann Hathaway was a crack-up. It was fun and entertaining. So what is it about Valentines Day that makes people hate it? I think men hate it cuz they can't stand the pressure of making sure they don't blow it and are never sure what they're supposed to do to not blow it. Women hate it cuz their man doesn't do what they think they should to prove their undying love and gratitude. What is it we women want? I don't need my man to spend a fortune on me. I just want him to not go on about how much he hates Valentines day because it's so commercialized and its just another day for the stores to make money and that he doesn't need a day to say he loves me, that he loves me every day of the year blah blah blah. Just look into my eyes and tell me how awesome and beautiful I am and that you love me more than life itself. And then give me a love letter that says your so glad there is a day set aside to make me feel as special as I am. Is that too much to ask? :) uh um... good movie....4 diamonds****

*WOLFMAN* R. I had great expectations for this one and was somewhat disappointed. Thought there would be some kind of twist to the typical werewolf story this time but it was a bunch of the same old. The best part was watching him transform, that was cool. 2 1/2 diamonds.**

Well it's been too long since I've put my two cents in about the movies so i don't know where to begin. I have gone to the movies every Friday since I've been here. I don't have my diamonds so I will use stars for now.

*AVATAR* PG-13. I saw this for the 3rd time today. I love this movie! It has it all. Romance, suspense, scary, sad, action, a villain that you hate, and at some points it makes you feel jubilant and triumphant. The colors and graphics are so amazing. I highly recommend it, but 3-D on the Imax screen is a must! 5 diamonds. *****

*LEGION* R. Weird, freaky, scary, disturbing, gross, yet intriguing with pretty good graphics so I'm giving it 2 diamonds. **

*THE BOOK OF ELI* R. I thought this was really good. It has some good messages and some paralells to our beliefs as mormons. I do love Denzel Washington, and Gary Oldman is such an awesome bad guy. It's mainly R because of violence. Good movie. 4 diamonds. ****

*TO PARIS WITH LOVE* R. I've said it before and I'll say it again, John Travolta plays an amazing bad guy!!! He is a really bad a-- good guy in this one. He says the F-word a ton which is ridiculous. Johnathin Rhys Myers is really good, they make a good team. Pretty predictable but action packed. It's ok. Not great. 3 diamonds. ***

*When IN ROME* PG-13. Kinda lame and corny but entertaining and fun. Predictable too. 2 diamonds. **

Gotta go for now, getting kicked out of moms house. More later.

Of course I would put you up Michele! :)

How are you all? Sorry for my absence, the days just get away from me. I still don't know how mom's work full time and function. We're all hanging in and plugging away. I think we could all get used to it here except for Erika. She is still convinced that she is going to go back to Utah next year and go to her high school. I really don't know what to do. The thought of moving back already is just more than I can bear. And let's not even go there with Jeff! He took the brunt of the move and is still recooperating. The High School here is kind of scary and not great. It is brand new and doesn't have any programs or extra-curricular activities. I feel like I need to let her go there and that we're ruining her life. :(
On a lighter note, can you believe that Elise came to visit us for Christmas and stayed!? She had finished her semester at Snow and was going to attend the community college in salt lake but decided to move to Arizona cuz she liked it so much. Well, and her boyfriend liked the aviation program here and came with her. He lives with his aunt and uncle in gilbert and will be teaching flight school in the spring. Now if I could get Brandon and V here, and get Erika to stay, I would be so happy. Well, I will come back soon. Love to all.

Which Flavor Are You?

Every day at 2:00 at Wal-Mart we have to go over to the grocery side and straighten all the shelves and throw away card board and put things away that are in the wrong place. It's called the 2:00 zone, and I dread it! The other day I had to do the freezer section, namely, ice cream. My hands were freezing. I was amazed at how I started thinking about everyone I knew as I saw all the different kinds of ice cream. It started with the sherbet, I almost got teary-eyed as I thought, 'Oh, Brandon loves sherbet.' 'Oh, wow, I didn't know they made brownie-cheesecake ice cream, that's Jeffs favorite kind of milk shake.' 'Chocolate chip ice cream? they still make that? that was always my dads favorite...' 'Caramel pecan, I remember that being Uncle LaMont and Chantels favs.' 'Strawberry cheesecake, my sister would love that, she loves loves cheesecake!' 'Coffee, oh boy, my crazy Erika loves coffee ice cream.' 'Cookies 'n cream, there's Bryce's favorite.' 'Cherry Garcia? that has to be Lesli's fav.' (Jeffs sis) 'Chocolate-banana shakes are Elise's favorite I think, do they make that kind of ice cream?' 'Oh it must be the holidays cuz ther's peppermint ice cream. My old neighbor in West Jordan couldn't wait for Christmas so she could get peppermint ice cream.' 'Ooooh! chocolate peanut-butter! thats the one! that is THE best flavor! not with chunks of peanut butter cups, noooo. chocolate with creamy real peanut butter! mmmmm. And that's my dear friend Lisa's favorite too.' 'Hmm, I wonder what kind my brothers like, and Venessa.... and my mom! I have to know! I asked Brandon what kind V choc chip. Okay, the verdict is in....if my mom could have any kind of ice cream.... she would choose... a vanilla cone from McDonalds:) So what is your favorite? Do tell!!!!

About Me

Bluffdale, UT, United States
I feel like the luckiest girl in the world. I've been married to Jeff - the love of my life, for almost 21 years. I'm the mother of four beautiful and amazing kids. Brandon is 19, Elise is 17, Erika is 14 and Bryce is 11. I love to spend time with my family, go to movies, play games, go to movies, go out to eat and go to movies. I love diet cherry coke, music, especially soft rock and religious music. I hate grumpy people, bad service and other people's hands in bags of potato chips. I love to go on Cruises...Oh, and I really love to go to movies!

My cute hubby!





Just a typical night out on the town
