Oh Hi There from WizCANsin...

I'm hanging out in Milwaukee for the next few days. Woot Woot. I'll be drinking and eating cheese (which is what EVERYONE does around here I'm told).

I have my camera but not way to upload so I'll be taking pics but don't expect any picture posts until I'm back into Utah.

I literally haven't left my hotel yet. I will be venturing out tonight for the comedy club outing but that's about it.

I just thought of something...I still gots it. Just so you know (IT doesn't imply all of "it"...just a dab).

How do I know this?
  • While walking in the Chicago airport getting to my next gate I passed a guy that licked his lips and said, "mmmhmmm how you doin' sweet thang" I giggled like I was six
  • A married dude just hit on me for the past hour
  • crap...maybe that's it
  • scratch time at the Tavernacle I was getting my nondrunk groove on and a lesbian video'd it. Word.

Oh yeah...still got it. I feel a celebratory booty shake coming on.

School Syndrome

Do you remember in school when the clock would say 2:30 and class got out at 2:35 so you started putting things away and packing your backpack just so you wouldn't miss the exit time of exactly 2:35?

I totally did this. Through high school and college. I remember Mrs. KJ in senior English yelling at all of us to sit back down because we had 4 more minutes of class. But that bell meant freedom, flirting, and note passing.

In college it meant racing to the next class, running into that cute boy you pass daily on the quad, or running home to watch 'Somebody Like You'. But still when it was within minutes…you were packing to get ready.

Well I just noticed that I totally have this same school syndrome. It's 4:00 which means it's almost 5:00 which means "quittin' time" so I feel like it's time to get ready to go home.
Yep. It's time to finish up my random projects, check all email accounts, stack all my papers (for the appearance of busy), and cross off things on my to-do list. This is the best time of day.

"No I can't meet to talk about that project. I need to get ready to go...I only have 59 minutes to prepare."

Scramble for the Cure

My friends John and Amber are putting together a charity golf tournament on Saturday, September 27th at 1:00 PM at the Glen Eagle Golf Course in Syracuse.

All proceeds benefit the Susan G. Koman Foundation for Breast Cancer research. The cost is $55/golfer. There are lots of sponsorship opportunities as well. It's going to be a ton of fun.

John's mom, Arlene passed away last year from battling breast cancer. She was a special woman in our lives. Fred has known the Pommerville Family for years. The kids all grew up together in Arkansas. After the Pommerville's moved to Utah, they let Fred live with them when he first came to Utah and whipped him back into shape and got him on a mission. She was an amazing woman who battled cancer courageously for 16 years.

Did you know:
  • Breast cancer is the leading cancer site among American women and is second only to lung cancer in cancer deaths

  • An estimated 40,460 women will die from breast cancer in 2008

  • An estimated 450 men will die from breast cancer in 2008

  • Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women of all ages. The most proven and significant risk factors are being female and getting older.
We're excited to be involved with their tournament and hope that others will join in raising money for a cure.

There is still room for more players. For more information leave me a comment and your email address and I'll send you the flier. Or look at their blog and leave them a comment.

See you at the tournament!

(yes this is a repost...because I want people to see it!!)

Hermana Taylor

My little sister Erin got her mission call this past weekend to the Louisville, Kentucky - Spanish Speaking Mission.

We are all so excited for her! I'm going to miss her soo much but I'm so proud of her decision to go on a mission and I know she'll be an amazing missionary!

Watch out Kentucky...She's a crazy!

Established with Love

We made it one year!
I've heard a lot of people say that the first year is the hardest. If that's the case - then we got lucky!

I've loved being married. I love coming home to my best friend every day.
Things I've learned while being married:

-sleeping next to someone makes me sleep really good
-sleeping really good makes me snore (he lies)
-romance?? riiight...
-Mexican food 3 days in a row = me sleeping on the couch due to waking up gagging from cross winds
-Toilet bowl fresheners (the kind that hang down in the bowl) are not good to have around a 28 year old kid. Not only do they freshen...but they're a target.
-"doing the dishes" does not include pots and pans.
-what ten pounds??
It seems like we've been married for years. I can wait for what this next year will bring (as long as it isn't a baby).

this is our buddy and honorary nephew Andrew. He and Fred are best friends.

Tonight he's playing with us while his parents are at a play. He won't leave Fred's side. It's really cute.

He's two and is a little parrot. We love making him say funny things. He does the funniest things all the time I just love it. If you don't have shoes on he'll come over and smell your feet and say 'yuck!' it's so funny. He also spanks your bum and says 'got your booty'. He's just crazy!

He calls Fred 'Doh-Da' as his way of saying Joseph (what Fred is known as in the Dirty Dirty).

We're watching a Goofy Movie for the second time. It's the only kid movie we have...good thing we love it!

We love our little buddy!

Blog about what?

I'm a terrible blogger lately. I don't know what it is. Maybe its because schools back in swing (not that that affects me) and things have turned into a routine once again. It also means that this time next year Fred will be in his last semester of school. YAY!

I'm beyond excited for fall. Fall means sweaters, jackets, changing leaves, cool nights and warm days, and most shows are back.

Thank you DVR makers...

Labor Day Weekend

Over Labor Day weekend we went to the first annual Taylor Family get-to-gether. We went down to my grandparents cabin at Acord Lakes by Richfield. It was really fun to get the whole family together. Really fun and really crazy.

We spent the days on the fourwheelers, eating, laughing, chasing children, eating, playing games, reading, eating and snacking. At one point, we "lost" Addie and only located her due to her high pitched "da-da" on the ridge over from the cabin. She just waved and kept running.

I was also able to damage at least one of my Dad's four wheelers. Of course it had to be HIS fourwheeler. I'll let the pictures do the talking. There were tears, swear words and a tiny bit of laughter. This is the first time I've done this so don't be worried. It just gets added to my list of 'not paying attention' moments. (I mean..."Dad, that rock came out of no where...) We had a lot of fun and can't wait until next year.

excuse the mess of's a Monday morning!

Roots to Leaves

My old buddy Chris has this amazing woodworking business called Roots to Leaves ( It's all custom woodworking...anything you could want such as desks, shelving, changing tables, mantels, etc. It's all gorgeous!

Check out the blog and if you've got projects you're thinking about then you should definitely contact him. He's based in Salt Lake. His stuff is awesome. It makes me want a house to decorate!!

And yes I'm slacking again on blogging...more to come in the next couple of days.
