We Went Somewhere- Nope, Not Camping...

Can you guess? I'll give you a hint: not Disneyland, but McKenzie had just as much fun!

She was a faithful friend- an unofficial member of the family: my "sister", our pet.
For over 16 years her smile and wagging tail greeted us at the door.
Her love and companionship were tried, tested she remained until the end: "True Blue."
As the watcher/keeper of our family her duties were never left unattended; she did not take vacations and took her protector's job very seriously.
Sadly, her health declined and it was time to say "goodbye"- then another couple of years passed and our experiences with her finally came to an end.
Your friendship, loyalty, and service will be missed,
Our "forever" dog: Christy.

Remember When...

This is on my cousin Annie's blog (it only took her a year to start blogging again). Sounded like fun. Here are the instructions:

1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember! Don't hold back, we're all friends here.

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses.

If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you. If you don't want to play on your blog, or if you don't have a blog, I'll leave my memory of you in my comments.

P.S. To my husband- please keep all comments clean and "family" friendly, remember- some of the people who read this are "conservative".

Sepia Represents Dirt...

I know everyone is SICK and TIRED of looking at even more camping pictures, but this is the only thing we get to do besides all the other boring things we do daily. So I'm sorry if this is absolutely horrifying- I tried to mix it up a little with "artistic" pictures of the great outdoors.

Heath is so much better at taking pictures than I am- that is why there are actually some of me.

Pop Culture & Patriotism

Ten reasons I'm glad to be an American -2008-:
10. The Bachlorette- in what other country would a woman be encouraged to date and possibly make-out with multiple men (on camera I might add) North Korea? Uh-huh. P.S. Go Jason!
9. The Twilight Series- God Bless Stephenie Meyer and her ability to write stories about Vampires who suck blood from innocent creatures but are unwilling to have sex before marriage. Whatever, I loved it.
8. The Dark Knight. I haven't seen it, but I will.
7. Dharma & Greg. Seriously: have you ever seen an episode?
6. A Woman, a black man, and a "normal" guy were all candidates for president. Thanks to one of my cousins for pointing this out. Pure genius. It is sad that some people can't think for themselves.
5. Elmo. My child has been provided hours of entertainment via someones idea of a cruel joke- really though.
4. BCBGMaxazria: I had all but given up hope of ever finding a dress for an upcoming wedding and then a part through the fog of despair- Maxie is having a summer sale. I think it is pretty damn cute if you ask me. P.S. I didn't do my research- do they have their clothes made out of the U.S?
3. Angelina Jolie. This woman will have 6 kids under the age of 10 and she looks amazing and she works and she is an ambassador or was and she has a pet by the name of Brad Pitt (have you seen his new movie coming out-something about Benjamin Button?). I think she deserves some respect, but just because I feel bad about not commenting on the fact that she stole another girl's husband I'm also including Jennifer Aniston in number three. Apparently John Mayer is good at something- baking bread maybe? I bet she eats a lot of bread.
2. President George W. Bush. I know what you are all thinking, those of you who know me- holy crap she actually put his name on her blog? I think some of you will be surprised to read that I DID vote for him and not because I knew it was pointless to vote against the grain in Utah but because the alternatives weren't that great either. I basically picked the worst of the two evils, or so I thought. AH I've lost site of why I put him on now- oh yeah! No matter what you think or believe or read- you have to admire the kahoonies it takes to keep on trucking even after you've reached the lowest possible approval rating ever!! Good for you leader of the free world, I kind of admire you, not really.
1. The 4th of July: this isn't really popular culture but I love the holiday that we can all put our differences aside and celebrate the fact that we live in a country that makes all of the above things even possible. That being said- please don't be the idiot that blows something up with some illegal fireworks you bought in Wyoming. Unless you live in Wyoming and then good luck blowing up anything there, because apparently we are all out of oil resources hence the $10.00/gallon gas, am I right?! Anyway- you know who you are!! Have a happy and safe 4th of July!
