Eat, Drink, and be Scary!

May Jack-o-lanterns burning bright...
Of soft and golden hue...
Pierce through the future’s veil and show...
What fate now holds for you.
Happy Halloween!

Hobby Lobby

Sometimes you go into Hobby Lobby to find parts for your Halloween costume and you end up just playing with velvet jewelry hands instead.  Yes, we left empty handed.  Yes, we went and got burgers. Best night ever.

A Night of Voodoo

My brothers are cooler than me.  It's a fact.  Chandler has the best taste in music and rocks an occasional mustache and Carter can yo-yo and do back flips on the trampoline.  Seriously...I'm lucky if I can put my shoes on the right feet in the morning, and both my brothers are in a band/multiple bands. It's ok, because I get to reap the benefits of seeing said brothers in their bands on a Friday night.  It was Carter's debut, too! So exciting.  Did Chandler have a solo? yep. Did I cry? NO! yep. 
I love them and couldn't be more proud. A shout out to Chandler and Carter for pulling their weight in the coolness department. Somebody has to do it. It might as well be them.   

Just a little Voodoo Doo Doo...I think I'm funny.  Does that make me cool?

Float like a Butterfly...

Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp,
but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you. - Nathaniel Hawthorne

O Autumn!

“October, baptize me with leaves! Swaddle me in corduroy and nurse me with split pea soup. 
October, tuck tiny candy bars in my pockets and carve my smile into a thousand pumpkins. 
O autumn! O teakettle! O grace!”
– Rainbow Rowell

Charity Never Faileth

Yep...that's my sweet sister in Periwinkle
We are beloved spirit daughters of God, and our lives have meaning, purpose, and direction. As a worldwide sisterhood, we are united in our devotion to Jesus Christ, our Savior and Exemplar. We are women of faith, virtue, vision, and charity who:

Increase our testimonies of Jesus Christ through prayer and scripture study.

Seek spiritual strength by following the promptings of the Holy Ghost

Dedicate ourselves to strengthening marriages, families, and homes.

Find nobility in motherhood and joy in womanhood.

Delight in service and good works.

Love life and learning.

Stand for truth and righteousness.

Sustain the priesthood as the authority of God on earth.

Rejoice in the blessings of the temple, understand our divine destiny, and strive for exaltation.

Dream Deferred

What happens to a dream deferred?

Does it dry up
Like a raisin in the sun?

Or fester like a sore--
And then run?

Does it stink like rotten meat?
Or crust and sugar over--
like a syrupy sweet?

Maybe it just sags
like a heavy load.

Or does it explode?

- Langston Hughes
