Remembering Rae

Today was the 1 year anniversary that Desirae Cassedy passed away. In some ways it seems like just yesterday and in other ways it seems forever ago. What I loved about Rae *her creativity & talent *her eyes *her being a good aunt! *her smile *her kindness I loved how she was so close with her mom. I think it's such a cool thing to have a great friendship with your mom! I'm blessed to have that also.
I pray that her family and friends will feel her spirit around them this week and will be comforted when they need it most. I miss Rae but know she is in a better place. I hope she'll be smiling down this week watching all of this crazy Halloween stuff! :) I loved how she LOVED halloween!

Brownies for cake....oh yeah!

We celebrated Susie's birthday tonight. She wanted mexican food, a movie and brownies! She's an easy girl to please! We saw the movie The Secret Life of Bees. It was really really good. I love Dakota Fanning though. Then, we came back to my house and had a little brownie cake (thanks to Stu) and sang Happy Birthday! Good times!

Day of Changes & Hayley update

YES that is my hair. All chopped off. I love it though! (Don't mind the picture! I look a little scary here visiting Hayley at the hospital). Which leads me to....the poor poor Hayley! The surgery ended up being 5 hours long and it was worse than they thought it would be. When the surgeon cut through the bone, he couldn't quite get to the right spot so recut ANOTHER bone. There were so many crushed bones all over that couldn't be fixed so the doctor just had to remove them! CRAZY. She has 7 large screws and one metal plate in her foot. Won't be able to put weight on it for 12 or so weeks. This girl has a LONG recovery but we are all SO grateful she is ok! Get home fast! We love you!

Random things happening....

*since there is no Pinkberry here....I've resorted to Red Mango. For those of you who haven't tried it - you must! Fresh fruit...yum. *The Chef Jeff Project started Sunday on the Food Network. It was a really good premiere! Not only is he THE nicest guy around...he really tries to help inner city kids. It's a really cool concept! I will admit that I hope there is a little bit of scandel on this reality show. Ok, so I kind of already know the ending but everyone should tune in! It's gonna be pretty good! *After a 17 hour work day (on the movie Hangover)...I decided I deserved a much needed facial. I thought about a massage but I had been working outside at the dry lake bed...need I say more. I went to Green Valley Ranch and it was heaven. It was too cold to swim outside obviously....but the decor is SO cool there. I love the feeling. And, my facial was amazing! While the mask was on my face, I even got a scalp and neck massage. Ahh! I just wish I could have made a whole day out of it. Maybe another time. Soon. *My mom got released from being Stake Relief Society President for the past 7 years. Yes, you heard me right. 7 long crazy years. I don't know how she stuck in there for that long but she is an amazing person! She was so incredible at that calling. I know she'll be missed. Alot. *Amber and I have been working our butts off for the craft show. We are so excited! We have a lot of cute jewlery as well as a few other things! Check our jewelry blog for updates! *I have been having crazy EYE issues the past few weeks. I even used eyedrops for over a week. I hate eyedrops. They just brought such relief. My friend Jen said maybe I could be allergic to some type of makeup. Thank goodness for Jen. Not that I am a makeup artist or anything.....I was SO allergic to a new eyeliner I was using. Threw that thing out! My eyes are perfectly fine. Whew! *Got a little more Christmas shopping done. Even got a couple gifts handmade! I feel like I'm on the ball but I know that closer to Christmas...I'll be stressed. Aren't we all? *My sister in law Hayley is having her surgery tomorrow (from her accident). It's going to be a 3 hour long one! And, she'll be staying a few days in the hospital. :( Everyone say a little prayer for her....and the sanity of her husband taking care of 3 kids.

One of those friends everyone wants! So, I hope you enjoyed your day...if you are reading this! :)

Makeup is not all that glamorous

I've been working on a movie the last couple of days....and my job was to make this guy into: THIS
It's been a pretty easy gig. No complaints other than:
working from 4 p.m. till 6 a.m. (i hate all nighters).
And, being so bored that I was exhaused. From boredom. Go figure.
But, I did get to:
Read an entire book.
write out 500 tags for the craft show.
Take a nap in my trailer.
Update my christmas card list.
Eat some really good catered food.
Meet a guy that was in Wedding Crashers. My favorite movie.
Make good money.
But, makeup isn't all the glamorous.

My new addiction...

Amber and I drove to California this weekend to pick up our jewelry supplies for the craft show. We didn't get everything we needed but we got enough to keep us busy for quite awhile! We stayed with my cousin Byron and his wife Kim in Santa Monica. They were so sweet to let us stay there and even sweeter to introduce us to these 2 things:
Pinkberry and The Griddle. Yeah. Those are pancakes. Unreal. It looked like we hadn't even touched our plate when we were finished. Good pick. And for pinkberry. It is a good thing there isn't one here.
