here's the deal.

We're undergoing some blog maintenance right now. And by "we," I am of course referring to my whole team of writers and editors and designers and all of those people under me. The peasants is what I like to call them.

So just excuse me for a bit while I get this little layout figured out. It might be a while because I want need to go make some brownies. it's been one of those days. and by one of those days, I mean that dinner was a disaster and the mashed potatoes I made somehow managed to look identical to Malt-O-Meal. 

If I knew I had to cook for the rest of my life, I might die. oh wait...

And in parting, I will leave you with these serious notes.

sums up this fine Sunday. 

Sometimes even 600%! But that percentage does not pertain to the the malt-o-meal mashed potatoes.
That was real life.

I can't testify for the beer and liquor, but I am here to tell you that the toothpaste/oj mix will getcha.

let that be a lesson.

so tell me... how did your Sunday dinner turn out?
don't really. I might get mad. now excuse me while I eat an entire pan of brownies.

words of strength.

I have written about my testimony of the LDS church in previous posts, but today I was inspired by this adorable little lady to share some more.

This video came to me in a time of need, and I have watched it countless times since then.

Here it is. I hope you love it as much as I do.

More of my testimony and religion here, here and here.

Happiness is...

Taylor Swift's new album that will be out on October 22. That's 9 weeks and 5 days from now. And you better believe I watched her live web chat where she made the announcement, all while cooking dinner. So yes, I do consider myself an expert in multitasking.

ps. if you haven't heard it, here is her new single. Can you say girl anthem? hollaaa. [And let's be honest, they aren't her greatest lyrics but like that even matters right now.]

Sweaters. scarves. layering. boots. I need fall to happen sooner. (this subject seems to be a reoccurring theme on my blog).

baby girl knows what I'm talking about.

The Christmas card that I started working on three weeks ago. So I get a little ahead of myself.

All things hearts. I'm a sucker for hearts.

oh and hot chocolate. I'm a sucker for that, too. 

My secret stash of baby clothes that I have purchased on sale over the past couple of years.

The dresser I bought for $5 at the thrift store and fixed up. Not to mention, my recent success at thrift/antique stores. We are currently using said dresser to put our TV on because we haven't bought an entertainment center. So I can't take pictures to put up due to the dresser being surrounded by Xbox cords. oh the joys.

The comeback of hair bows. I've been waiting for this since age 7.

The progress and positive changes I have been making in my life. Another post about this to come later.

and let's just throw in these last two outfits. just for kicks.

so that's that.
