The End?

I am going into hiding. It's just been too crazy to keep this up lately. Too much going on, too much to reevaluate in life and I need a break. I will come back when things calm down and when I feel like coming out of hiding. Going into a cocoon as a caterpillar and coming out as a beautiful butterfly. Peace out!

I'm not dead! Yay! haha. Sorry it's been so long. Not that i have a ton to talk about since it's always the same old thing but I wanted to at least write something so someone knew I was still alive. I got a new niece last week and she is adorable. She was born to martys brother Nick and sister in law Angala. This is their second child. It was nice seeing the new baby. Her name is Marian. I will be taking some pics of her later and will post them when i do.
Lately I have been feeling so inadequate with pretty much everything. I suck at my photography, I suck at being a friend, I suck at being a human being pretty much. I have been trying so hard to get our name out there so we get hired for more photography jobs, but no matter how much I beg for people to "Like" us on facebook they just won't. And then when family needs a photo shoot done they don't ask us, they pay a bunch of money to have someone else do them. Thats such a slap in the face. You know we are struggling to get more experience and to get more known, and yet they still support us by having us do their pictures. It sucks! I shouldn't complain though. We have had great support from quite a lot of people but it seems to just stall. I am reading so many books to teach me more about it so I can be better at it, but all that knowledge doesn't do me any good if we still can't get work. It's hard in Utah cuz everyone and their dog is a photographer but still, I just want to do what I love. ok, enough complaining. Sorry.
I have been trying to get healthier lately and it really has been some hard work. I think my metabolism decided to retire the day i turned 29. Cuz ever since then i have not been able to lose weight. I have drastically changed my diet and workout a lot, and it's still staying stubborn. Stupid body. haha! Ok well my fingers hurt from writing so I will go for a second.

The Best Recipe EVER!!!

Spinach and Artichoke Dip-New York style
2 jars (6 oz.) marinated artichokes (chopped)
1 package (10 oz.) frozen chopped spinach
1 clove garlic (chopped)
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise
3/4 cup parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 375. Mix all ingredients together and place in square baking dish. Bake for 20-25 min. Serve with crackers, baguettes, or chips. Serves 6

This stuff is to DIE for! If you have ever had the dip at Olive Garden, it tastes exactly like theirs. Thought I would share!

Combined days-15 and 16

I am combining days today since I haven't written recently enough. Plus, i am bored so I need to make more of this. Ok so the subjects are Day 15 – Something you don’t leave the house without. Day 16 – Your celebrity crush.
I can't leave home without my cell phone (in case the kids need me or if I need help in some way), my keys and my Ipod. Oh and money, that is important. haha! My celebrity crush would be Gerard Butler. HE. IS. HOT!!!! And as a bonus, he can sing!! YUM!

Day 14 – A TV show you’re currently addicted to.

This one is easy. My favorite show above all others is Vampire Diaries!!! LOVE IT! There is not a Thursday that I miss it..............unless it's a rerun or the season is over for the year. (I have even skipped parent teacher conferences for it) haha. Don't worry, Marty went in my place. ;) When it is not Vampire Diaries night, I love watching Human Target, House, Bones, American Idol, Kitchen nightmares, Hells Kitchen, Lie to me, and Raising Hope. (Obsessed with FOX much?? I think so!)

Day 13 – Your favorite musician and why?

I am skipping day 12 cuz it wants a pic of the place i grew up in and seriously I have no idea where to get a picture of Lindon, so you get this instead haha! Ok my favorite musician is Carrie Underwood. I idolize her. Hands down!!! She is living the life i have ALWAYS dreamed of living! I literally want to BE her. She is not shallow and actually cares about her image instead of throwing it away like most musicians. She is a good person and her voice and music are the most beautiful things ever! Here is a pic, just cuz.....
