Be Still and know that I am God....

I love this quote and I notice any time things get hard this is what I hear running through my head over and over. I think it is probably because I rarely take the time to be still and ponder our Father in Heaven, don't get me wrong I am still quite a bit, you don't get this figure by not being still. But very rarely do I be still and ponder my testimony but when things get hard this is where my thoughts turn to. So many of my friends recently are enduring really hard times. I want them to know of my love for them and for them to be comforted by our Heavenly Father.
I am sending my love today to Shelley and Melinda and Amy I hope you are comforted and loved at this time and that you feel those loving arms around you.
John's family has been through a lot in the last year and it looks like now it is going to be another hard year. We are offering up special prayers and love to members of his family today. We hope that they will be blessed because of those prayers and that we all can be comforted. These are interesting times we are living in and I truly believe without a knowledge and love of the Savior we will be lost. I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday and take the time to be still. And thank you for all of your great comments on my previous post, I have taken many of your suggestions and put them to work for us. Happy Sunday!

I am BACK!!

I have given my blog much thought lately, whether to continue doing it, what should it be etc. I know it is stupid to give it that much thought but nonetheless I have. This last week I have had times where I thought I would explode from stress, and then I have wonderful friends and family who seem to be so in tune (btw how do you do that?) and know just when I need a pick me up. So to you guys, you know who you are THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! Be it chocolate (yummy) or flowers (beeeeauuuutiful) or just a sweet comment on the blog you guys ROCK!! So I have been thinking that my blog needs to be more random. I laugh (or at least try to laugh) a lot during the day so I am going to try to post some of the things that make me smile and hopefully they will do the same for you. I also realized that I love comments so I am going to post questions of the week and hopefully I will get comments (it makes me feel special) I also am currently trying to do many projects so I am going to try doing show n tell because again it makes me feel special! So I will try this first question today.

I think many people are trying to get back to basics in many ways, some of you who I know have always been there but I think with the economy (that really bites at the moment) people are trying to get back to the basics for example,
I am now making bread for my family, I know a mormon that can't make bread its a wonder I have made it this long!! We are also planting a garden for the first time, is it wonder I haven't been kicked out of RS!! I am also learning to sew! (maybe I should have spoken with someone before I confessed I don't know how to do any of these things. So here is the question:

What are you doing if anything to help with the current state of the union and your family where are you finding ways of cutting corners that you haven't before? I want to know because I need all the help I can get and you are some of the smartest people I know! COMMENT AWAY!! (I mean it!!)

***Pretty soon I will be posting a slide show of my cakes over here ----->>>>>
so look for it and if anyone you know needs a wedding or birthday cake throw me a bone if you wouldn't mind THANKS, CHEERS and HAPPY FRIDAY!!!!!

Blogging Blaaahhhhhsss!

Do you ever just get BLAH! Of course you do. I am having blogging blahs, I am tired of the same old thing on my blog, I feel like all it is becoming is really self indulgent, because I try to make sure I do my Flashback Friday, and One Word Wednesday so as I so often do I am throwing out the old book and rewriting it AGAIN! I don't know really what I will be posting from now on. But I hope it is a little more creative than what I have! I read others blogs and think that is so cool how they did that and it is things I don't even think about posting so if you don't hear from me for awhile this is why, I am trying to find my way. With the current state of events, Utah seems to be finally getting hit with the economy. Our business is suffering, but I am really trying hard to be grateful for all the blessings we have, John has a great amount of work, (getting paid is another story) but at least he can work. The stress of it all is contributing to my blaahhss! I have all these fabulous friends who are making themselves more fabulous by getting fit and lovely! Which makes me so happy for them and a little jealous. Of course not jealous enough to join them! But right now I have switched to survival mode and its all I can do to keep my head above water. So if I wasn't self indulgent before this post surely has done it!! But know in the words of the who's down in whoville says WE ARE HERE! We are just not feeling it right now! Love to you all!

Truly Awesome Tuesday

Okay first off all DWTS started last night, and it was great, How awesome was Melissa? I don't watch the batchelor but of course I know what happened and she did awesome!! Hopefully Denise or playboy girl will be the first to leave, because really crying the first show? Come on! Anyway I digress did anyone happen to see this little gem afterwards?

It is called Castle and
It's completely cheesy and eye candy but it is one of those shows that I think John and I will like together because it has something for both us. If you didn't see it you should its pretty fun, and the writing is pretty clever. Enjoy good TV because in this economy its all I can afford how bout you?
