Move Your Boogie Body!

My sister, Heather is a huge advocate for the new revolutionary style of exercise, JAZZERCISE! Of course, it's been around forever, but has changed significantly since the day its founder, Judi Sheppard Misset (in the middle) first hit the floor in 1982 with her boogie-jammin' moves! This is truly hilarious! Enjoy!!...and Move Your Boogie Body, Girls!

These Are a Few of my Favorite Things!

Happy New Year, everyone! Oh, how I love new beginnings! As we embark upon a brand new year, I thought it would be fun for me to share just a few of my favorite things....Now just to clarify, these are not the "raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens" kinds of favorite things (although I do love those too!), but rather tangible/edible products that Kristin has put her stamp of "I love it!, I Love It, I LOVE It!" on! It's like Oprah's Favorite Things Show!

Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer
Oh my...if you have never experienced a delicious, glossy blanket of HEAVEN across your lips,
THIS is the product for you! I use Burt's Bees for both lip hydration, chapped lips, AND my
lipstick! My favorites are Radiance which is just a clear, yummy shimmer and
Toffee which is my "out the door" shade that doubles as both a lipstick AND a

Goosie Cards

I love Goosie Cards!! I use them to compile custom-made family history cards for Charly that she can look through during Church or really any time of the day! I have pictures of Great-Grandmothers/fathers who have passed away, extended family members that she does not see very often, and then the family she DOES see every day! If she ever sees these people, she knows exactly who they are! They also do ALL kinds of awesome, educational, custom-made flashcards for any topic you want! Love it, love it, love it! Check them out at

Hempz Body Butter

Oh my goodness, whether your skin needs a delicious drink to rehydrate those dry patches, or you just want to smell yummy, HEMPZ body butter is the answer! I was first introduced to this from a friend at Lake Powell this past summer. Yes, it is derived from the marijuana plant...NO, your skin cells do not sluff the marijuana into your blood stream....Oh, sometimes I wish I was not so gullible!!! You can get this at any salon!
Black Angus Mountain Fudge Double Chocolate Cake

This one actually has a very tragic ending...this was and will always be my favorite chocolate divinity of all time, but sadly, there are no longer any Black Angus Restaurants in Utah. They are all over the Western Region, but no longer here. I didn't really like anything there other than their delicious honey wheat bread and their cake. *sigh* I suppose all good things must come to an end! (PS-I am not an ice cream person...I just eat the cake!:-))

Tribal Jewelry

I love handmade jewelry! Tribal Jewelry is by far my favorite jewelry line, along with my dear friend, Donna's jewelry line, "DonnaNicole". These jewelry pieces are so unique! Diamonds are no longer a girl's best friend!

Real Life Broadway Nails

Ooohh, my secret is out! I do NOT like fake nails, but as an interpreter, the presentation of your hands is so important. We cannot wear nail polish and our nails cannot be long. So, I discovered the perfect compromise! You can alter these nails however you would like, but I buy the "Super Short" set, that have a beautiful, clean, natural look that you simply glue on! They last for about two weeks and cost about $4.50 for a set of 24 nails.

Suave Exhale Alluring Sandalwood & Cinnamon Body and Hand Lotion

Oh, you have just got to try this! I love to moisturize several times a day, and THIS is a delicious, refreshing new delivery from Suave that just tickles my fancy!...did I just say that?!? This bottle is actually the body wash, but the moisturizer comes in a pump.

MultiGrain Cheerios....or Heaven in a Box!

Although my sister, Kim would disagree completely with me and claims these taste like cardboard, you simply must trust my endorsement of this product!! Here is my testimonial...

"I have been a faithful customer of General Mill's Multi-Grain Cheerios for over 16 years. Whenever I indulge myself with a bowl, I am enlightened, uplifted, rejuvenated, energized and infused with pure joy. This is hands-down, the best General Mills product I have ever devoured. In short, they have completely changed my life."

So there you have it!! Now, I want to know, what are a few of YOUR favorite things???

Together Forever

Many of you may remember last June when my brother-in-law Derek's little brother, David, passed away suddenly. He left behind his dear wife and soulmate, Kelli, his 2 year old daughter, Kennedy, and an unborn angel who was to be born 6 months later. On December 20th, Kelli gave birth to their little girl, London Wright. As my sister said, what a sweet thing to think that just moments before she was cradled in her Daddy's arms and then passed through the veil into her mother's. We miss David so much, but know he will be walking alongside his girls every day of their lives until one day when they shall once again be reunited.

Welcome Home, London! David, Kelli, and Kennedy, We Love You!
