Tina Fey for President

a little piece of heaven

Grey and Smoked Salt Caramels from Frans Chocolates are what I think heaven must taste like. Perfect caramel draped in silky delicious dark and milk chocolate and topped off with gorgeous salt crystals . . . ummmm salt crystals. Seriously one of the very best chocolates I have ever had! Order them here. I also think these would be a great Christmas gift (hint, hint.)

missing these 2 characters

list heaven

If you like to make lists, this book is for you. Half the fun of grocery shopping, party planning and wedding flower planning is the lists that I have to make to accomplish these tasks. This book is the end all be all of my list making fantasies (yes I have fantasies about list making, don't judge me.) I just bought this book today and I am almost half way through it! Find it here.

shoes so cute

Couple of things I would like to own...

Find camera here and chair here.

Great to have you back,

but may I just say to Meridith and Derek, please take your cue from our dear Pam and Jim, AND GET TOGETHER ALREADY!
And may I say to Grey's Anatomy & ABC (and I think I speak for all of us) I solemnly swear to continue watching Grey's even if the on again off again, on yet again and off yet again relationship between Dr's Grey & Shepherd story line is not there. So please put us all out of our misery and get them together, you do have quite a few other characters too you know. I just can't take it anymore, seriously it's old. As for The Office & NBC, I applaud you.

hare hare

Luke and I headed down to India Fest the other day, it was amazing. Great food, beautiful surroundings and dancing. Although they did neglect to put these talented and beautifully adorned dancers in front of something nice to look at, instead they put them in front of a projection screen in half of a shed. So my pictures, not so great. But we had a great time and we are looking forward to their next event!

lost pola

I thought I had lost this polaroid from Bear Lake. I have always liked this weird tree trunk sculpture that you see when you first get into town.

Happy 88th Birthday Grandma

8 reasons my Grandmother is the most exceptional person I know:

8. She keeps in very close contact with all of her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, neighbors, waiters, cleaning ladies, plumbers, doctors, nurses, gardeners and well you get the idea. Chances are if you have spent an hour with Carol, she knows a lot about you, and will continue to learn everything about you; and will send you a card on your birthday and every major holiday.

7. She keeps fruit, cheese, nuts or anything that needs to stay cool in the dryer.

6. She has kept every letter and note from all of her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, neighbors, waiters, cleaning ladies, plumbers, doctors, nurses and gardeners.

5. She does Tai Chi every Monday and drinks vinegar every morning.

4. If there is music within ear shot of her she will immediately begin to dance.

3. She is 88 and still wears 3 inch heals and looks better in them than I do.

2. She once took a fully cooked Turkey on a plane to Denver.

1. Carol is above all else kind and loving, she continues to show this to all she comes in contact with. We love her and wish her a very happy birthday and many more!

You have perfect color vision!
dFM Hue Test Results


I have known this for quite some time, but it is always nice to be vindicated by some random test on the internet! Test your color vision here.

Meikel, you are so embarrassing

My dear friend Traci is the best. She is always willing to let me take tons of pictures of her as I learn more about photography. In almost every shoot, I start to get really excited (mostly because I am actually learning and because of Traci the photos look amazing) and she will roll her eyes and tell me how embarrassing I am. She will then proceed to jump in the air or anything else I tell her to do. Aren't friends the best, thanks Traci!!!
These photos were a sun flare & silhouette assignment.

hooray for interesting dresses

Kudos to these lovely local girls and their excellent taste. So nice to see interesting wedding dresses in the enormity that is the Utah wedding scene. May I offer and extra nod to Duston Todd who took these photos, check him out here. Not only is Duston a talented photographer, he is wonderful to work with.

egg press

I love this line of stationary goodness that I found. Their designs are egg-pressive (sorry I couldn't help it.) They have everything paper you can think of. Check them out here.

I feel that there are people in your life that affect you so profoundly there just are not words to pay tribute to them. It also seems that these people are only given to us for a short but significant period of time. My grandfather is the embodiment of all these things. I miss him and I am so proud to be his granddaughter. It seems only fitting that I post of picture of him with the person that gave him so much joy, my grandmother.

Elder Jeffery Carlyle Nelson

My cousin Jeffrey went into the MTC this week to prepare to serve in the Calgary, Canada Spanish Speaking Mission. We got to hang out with our little Elder for a few days before he left. We wish him all the best and can't wait to hear from him! Good Luck Jeff!
