Right now...

I'm daydreaming...

A lot...

I'm in my future home office in my future photo studio/area in my future home. And I'm a full-time photographer and I am my own boss. I have the coolest camera, with some pretty sweet lenses too. And I'm a big deal.

That's all.

Too bad it's just a daydream.

For now at least...

Dreams DO Come True

As many of you know, my sweet little cousin Devin (aka Devi-Wevi) was diagnosed with cancer for the 2nd time. He had been such a trooper and has stayed so positive during his fight.

Tonight up in Murray, he was able to officially make his "Wish" through the Make-a-Wish Foundation.

One would think that a teenage boy would want to go to Disneyland, or ride in a big truck or something like that. Not this guy. He has wished to go to the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville Tennessee. He leaves tomorrow and is so excited he can hardly stand it.

Special thanks to all those who have helped make Devin's Wish come true!

Here's KSL's video highlight of the evening. It was a great night.

Advice from the 14 year old Love Guru

Today I was talking to my little sister on good ol' Facebook Chat. She seems to think that she has "men" figured out. Before I go on about the rest of the story, here is a bit of background about my little sister.

Name: Amy
Age: 14
# of Boyfriends: We already lost count...

I think that will do for purposes of this blog post :)

She asked me how my dating life was. Since I am her older sister, 23, and still single, she thinks that is not going to do (me being single and all) and believes I should get married soon. She asked me what I was doing to help correct my situation and I told her nothing really because I'm just kind of... well, tired of guys and want to just have fun for a bit and not even think about them.

THEN she said, and I quote "You're just telling yourself that because YOU'RE TOO AFRAID TO TRY!"

WOAH Woah woah...

Then I got more advice such as "They probably think the same thing as you do: she probably doesn't like me and it's pointless to like her if she doesn't like me back."

THEN... (here's the best one and the reason for ths post)
"it's true!!!.... Boy's are freakin retarted like that... TRUST ME!!! I would know :) :) :) But seriously Sarah, you have to do something about it... that's what I did and look at my numbers!!! F-L-I-R-T!!!"

(copied directly from our chat)

Wait... what? LOOK AT MY NUMBERS?!?

Looks like, once again, I have gotten beat by my little sis. Yeah, she'll probably get married before me and she's still only 14.

So Funny.

those were the highlights of the converstaion. and it was pretty entertaining to say the least.

So now what? I think I'll still say that I'm tired of boys AND it's not because "I'm too afraid to try"! I'm just tired of them.... for this week anyways.

He's Back!

We made a sign that looked like the Swedish Flag

My brother made it home, without his luggage, but at least he made it home. His luggage came a couple days later after someone at the Chicago airport told them to set their luggage in a corner... Really? A Corner?

That's him... the one in the suit!

We're pretty excited now.

The Whole Fam. Don't ask what Mom is doing... we're not sure :)

We had a lot of family come down over the weekend so here are some pics!

Devin & Amy. This picture is SO adorable. Melts my heart every time I see it

Best Buds - Hadn't seen each other in 3 whole years!

Devin kept sayin - "Man Dallin, I really missed ya man!"
