Check out this website!

If you know me you know I love designer fabrics. Especially Amy Butler and Moda. For the last two years I have been trying to start a business with my mom making bags and aprons using this fabric. I found a website with that very thing. And, it was started by one of my long lost best friends from high school. I have been trying to find her for a long time. I knew we were friends for a reason. We must be kindred spirits!

Here is Joni(Osborne)Gardine's website:


Flaming Gorge!!!

The annual Flaming Gorge trip is over! :( My camera batteries went dead the second day and after that I could not get my camera to turn back on. I have so many great memories that I didn't get a picture of. My aunt Clair organized a yearly family "party" and it was so much fun. Stefan towed up a huge fun camper, and I didn't get any pictures of that either.

We played "beauty shop" on the beach. Sophie is a master when it comes to hair and makeup! She put on my foundation, blush, eyeliner, lipliner, lip gloss and mascara like a pro. She is very skiled for a 3 year old. My camera batteries went dead so I don't have a picture of the finished product.

Sophie working on my hair at the beach

She loved brushing out my curly hair and adding lots of clips

Once I told her I had my makeup in my backpack she was done with my hair and ready to start the make-up. The rest of the week she would ask me if she could do my hair and make-up.

This was the view from our campsite. It was first thing in the morning and I was sitting at the picinc table drinking a diet coke when I took this picture, so RELAXING!

I loved this hat with the special fishing head lamp attached that doesn't scare the fish.

My dad caught four fish in 2 hours the last full day we were there. He even caught the fish during the 3 hour window for "optimal" fishing, according to his GPS.

Oliver's first year at Flaming Gorge. He was such a good boy! We love having him with us!!

4TH OF JULY Family Picnic


I was able to meet up with two of my dearest friends, Jenni and EmmyLou. We see each other about once a year. It is always so fun to see them. The time always flies when we are together and we seem to catch up right where we left off. We laugh so hard. It is great fun! The picture below is of EmmyLou and her husband Charlie. I laughed so hard because she looked at picture right after I took it and said, "Oh great, we look just like a flag!" I was laughing so hard because it kind of did look like a flag, especially on the little screen of my camera.
