I've been BRANDED

It's official. I have my wrist band and I'm doing it! WHOO HOO! I'm actually really EXCITED now because I've had a huge paradigm shift and I see this as a game instead of something I have to take too seriously. Wish me luck! ;)

As fate would have it...

This coming week is my third wedding anniversary and my husband and I were going to go camping up the Uintah Mountains, but, Ryan's work really needs him to be there that day so we will be home, and our anniversary happens to be on the same day as American Idol tryouts...

I kept telling everyone that I refused to tryout for a show that has the potential to slaughter you on national television, but after talking to my sis, I realized it's so close to home that it would be silly not to try it this year if I plan on doing it in future years.

So yes, I will be auditioning.

haha, I really don't plan on anything coming of it but I get a rush just thinking about how I once refused to ever try and now I view it as a game, a dare to myself if you will...

I'm going to the slaughter.

Tribute to my Sister

This girl is awesome. She has always thought of others more than herself and I really respect her. Great job for placing in the teen talent quest contest Natalie!

Down Syndrome Awareness

This is my 3 year old niece Emma. She was born with Down syndrome and within a year developed juvenile diabetes. Her days are filled with endless monitoring and continual struggles. On July 19th, 2008 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. we will be having a benefit fair at Wines Park (500 N. Center, Lehi) in behalf of Emma to help her family cope with the medical costs of major surgeries, medication, and doctor appointments that have buried the young family and will for years to come.

If you are interested in coming to hear one of my shows, I will be part of the various entertainment that day. Tickets are only $5 per person or $10 for an entire family if you get them through me. Along with entertainment will be food, boutiques, esthetician services, huge blow up toys and games for the kids, etc.

A non-profit organization called Endless Hope Foundation has been started on behalf of Emma and donations are accepted at any Zions Bank. Any donation would be appreciated. EVERY PENNY HELPS. Thank you for making a difference!
