For those of you who missed our boutique, I have included some pictures for you to see. It was a great day, except for all of the snow that we got the morning of the boutique. I think that put a damper on it. We were hoping for a lot more people... There were so many great vendors, and great items. If any of you missed the boutique, but would still like to purchase from our vendors, please contact me, and I will get you in touch with them. Here are a few pictures of the boutique:
We had Bags to Riches on the left hand side selling cute handbags, and Angela's Accessories in front of the fireplace, on the coffee table are items from Le Tres Chic Boutique, which is a home decorating company...they had adorable magnet boards, Christmas decorations, and wall hangings. Later on in the boutique we had scarfs and jeans from Nappi Clothing, and watches, belts, t-shirts and hoodies from Kingdom Crown clothing on the couch.
Another view of the living room.
This is the Scentsy display. They had a lot of new burners and scents for the fall and winter. The boutique smelled so good thanks to the burner on the top right and really delicious cranberry scent.

4.) Goonies - I have seen this movie more times than I can count. Sloth, and the Babyruth...who could forget? We also had the video game for our Nintendo. My brother and I would plug that baby in and play for hours...really I would just watch him, and when he finally got up to use the bathroom...which didn't happen often...I would get to play. ...but back to the movie...One-eyed Willy, so funny! If you haven't watched this in awhile, I suggest you rent it, pop some popcorn, and let yourself drift back to 1985. Now, instead of doing another favorite movie from my childhood...I'll just list a few more that bring back the golden oldies: The Last Unicorn, Never Ending Story(which we had an hour long conversation with the Mortimers about, followed by watching the movie...me falling asleep), and Big.
6.) Village Lip Balm - little tin cans where the lids slid off revealing flavorful lip balms...if you were lucky, you could find some that had a different flavor of lip gloss on each side. You pushed the tin to one side, and it was pineapple, to the other side and it was coconut...just one of the many great flavor combinations. I remember sliding mine back and forth clicking, clicking, clicking...I'm sure I drove my dad crazy with it. I also remember digging through a barrel at Knott's Barry Farm full of these tiny little gold tins looking for the perfect flavor combination. If only Village Bath products would bring these back...I know a few girls who would be jumping at the bit to get them.
7.) Strawberry Shortcake Kids - I couldn't possibly do a post on my 10 things to remember from growing up without including these delicious dolls. I owned almost all of the dolls, except the Purple Pieman. My friend around the corner owned this doll though...I think she also owned a couple of my dolls...after taking them from me. mean girl! I loved their plastic animals, sweet smell, and adorable clothes. Lem n' Ada were two of my very favorites. I actually took up buying these adorable dolls on ebay a couple of years ago...I never finished my collection because some of them ended up being VERY expensive...but I have enough to keep the memory alive forever. They put out new dolls a few years back, but they just aren't the same... I also had the large Strawberry Shortcake Doll that blew kisses...my brother sprayed WD40 on her hair and then after that she blew WD40 kisses. I still have her, and surprisingly enough...her kisses smell like strawberries again.
8.) Garbage Pail Kids - It took my husband to remember this one for me...although I don't know why because a year ago I found them in a vending machine in Mario's (game store) in the Provo Towne Center Mall. I bought probably 20, and was so excited to share them with my brother. We used to ride our bikes to Brookside gas station (the OLD brookside gas station) in Springville so we could buy these cards. I believe they game with a hard stick of bubble gum...just like baseball cards, and the garbage pail was actually a sticker. I never removed my stickers. They also had little bios on the backs of the cards. Being an adult now, and seeing these cards...SUPER creepy. They were actually drawn by Art Spiegelman.
9.) Jelly Bracelets - Every young girl's popularity was based upon how many jelly bracelets you had. I personally liked the clear bracelets with glitter in them. I had a lot of jelly bracelets, and would loop them together, or just stack them all the way up my arm. So cute! I also liked to chew on them...don't ask.
10.) Jem and the Holograms - How could this list possibly be complete without Jem and the Holograms? I loved Jem...I would wake up early just so I could watch it on Saturday mornings. It was my all time favorite cartoon. I loved Jem's big pink hair. When Jem wasn't performing in her rock bank with the Holograms, she was just plain ole' Jerricah. But when it was showtime, she would hold onto her star earring, and say, "It's showtime Synergy," and she would transform into Jem. Her boyfriends name was Rio and he was soooo hot! ...and of course there had to be a villian, so it was The Misfits...and punk band that they would compete against. At any rate, I LOVED Jem, and maybe still do.

You will need to click on the lovey link above to know what I'm talking about. ...but I just have one word...CLASSY! It cracked me up so much I had to send the link to my husband, and also to my good friends, the Thompsons, because I knew they would laugh, even if no one else does, why? because they know funny!

UGG® Australia delivers on its promise of luxury and comfort. UGG® Australia is about accessible luxury. Our products fit into the consumer's every day life offering them products that are fashionable, comfortable, and attainable." ok, so this is UGG's philosophy...I am wondering how they could have possibly missed the HEAT factor. These boots are made for cold temperatures. Warm, little cuddly bundles of heat for your feet. So, that being said, WHY do girls wear these in 75 degree weather with little strappy dresses? Is this so they don't have to wear a sweater and can continue wearing their summer wear?

The company I work for has started a blog...oh no! fncreative.blogspot.com Our administrative assistant is now taking pictures of everything, and writing down everything EVERYONE says in the office. So far...it's humiliating. I've been exposed for not wanting to answer the phones, having my neck meat removed, AND moving upstairs from THE CAVE. ...at least I haven't been video taped on the slider cycle. ...see blog for video.
At any rate...it's made the office, not more fun, but maybe a little more self monitored...sometimes a good thing. I hope I don't resort to just shutting my office door.
More posts to come...I've had a busy summer!

You Are Cayenne Pepper
You are very over the top and a bit overwhelming.
You have a fiery personality, and you can give anyone a good jolt.
You can easily take things up a couple notches, no matter what crowd you're running with.

First, the rules
1. Each player answers the questions about themselves.
2. At the end of the post, the player then tags five people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves a comment letting them know they've been tagged and to ask them to play along and to read your blog.
What I was doing ten years ago...
1 That would have been ’98… I was just being “20”
2 Going to UVSC…sitting in the hall of flags, and checking people out.
3 Working at Alexander’s…which who knew then would turn into a 12-year career.
4 Hanging with friends from my BYU ward…those were amazing times.
5 Driving a Honda Accord EX, which by the way, I still drive to this day. Anyone need a car?
Five things on my to-do list today...
1 Watch TV…I have some programs to catch up on.
2 Mop the bathroom floor…it’s BAD!
3 Put price tags on all my clothing for my boutique.
4 Go to bed early.
5 Make a semi-unsatisfying meal…and pretend to enjoy it.
Five snacks I enjoy...
1 First of all…how do I limit it to “5” snacks? The first on the list is anything gummy…gummy worms, gummy bears, gummy fruits…you name it, I LOVE it!
2 Any baked good from Gourmandie’s Bakery in downtown SLC.
3 Dippin’ Dots…yes, I said it, dippin’ dots…hard to find, but worth every dot.
4 Crackers…almost any kind, but especially cheesey ones…like Cheese Nips.
5 frooties…you know those penny candies that are like tootsie rolls, but fruity, I love those… Kenny calls them footies.
Five things I would do if I was a billionaire...
1 Buy a BMW 135i…only because it’s the car I really want right now… I’m sure there would be others to follow.
2 Travel the world IN STYLE. Nice hotels, amazing restaurants, first class tickets, never carrying my own bags. (I stole this one from Arianne)
3 I would buy my dream house…not necessarily huge, but decked out…all the really great cupboards, and really fine furnishings, completed with a fantastic yard filled with waterfalls that flow into pools.
4 To take care of the house and yard, I would need a full staff…and I would pay them well. This would also include a personal chef, and in-house trainer.
5 I would not work…I would actually love to be able to travel to places in need, and devote time, energy and money to helping them better their lives.
Five of my bad habits....
1 WAY overuse of the ... (dot dot dot)
2 Not washing my face…there are nights when let’s face it, all I want to do is go to bed.
3 Moodiness…I’m going to say it’s a bad “habit,” because it’s something I’m trying to work on. Unfortunately, there is a week out of the month where I’m not really that nice of a person.
4 Easily irritated. I’m irritated by music when it’s too loud, when someone asks me too many questions, by wrappers, people chomping their popcorn too loudly in the theater….the list goes on and on.
5 Eating junk food. Should be BAD HABIT #1.
Five places I have lived.... (I'm going to change this to five places I've traveled because my places I've lived is BORING!
1 Toyko, Japan
2 Milan, Italy
4 Cancun, Mexico
5 Boston, MA
Five jobs I've had....
1 I shredded important documents in the basement of a bank. It was dark, cement, and lonely…besides all the bankers would throw their drinks, and gum in the same trash that I had to sort through…and the WORST was toner cartridges.
2 I worked at a video and party goods store…I loved it! I got to see a lot of movies before they were released on video. I always thought that was cool. Plus, I LOVE party goods.
3 Jamba Juice. I worked there two weeks and decided that it was really cutting into my social life, so I quit. My only paycheck I ever got there was $76.
4 Mervyns – I HATED that job! The place was a complete disaster. I’m a little OCD and it bothered me to have to fold, and refold the same pair of pants 20 times in one night. I wanted to scream at the patrons…don’t unfold unless you are going to BUY!!! I think I would have done much better in a smaller retail store, or boutique.
5 I’m just going to say, ALEXANDER’S…it was 12 years of my life…lots of friends, a few enemies, great customers…and good experiences. I moved on a month and a half ago…big life change for me.
Tag! You're it!!
1 Julie E. – The Queen Bee and Me. A friend of mine, and a SUPER funny person…I can’t wait to read her answers.
2 Danalyn – Treasures4u2share. This is my cousin, and she’s a computer nerd. J …like my husband. And I love finding out more about her.
3 McKell – Up to my knees in KNIT. I love her blog, and I don’t know her SUPER well, and would like to get to know her better.
4 Suzy – The Baller Fam. I always send my surveys to Suzy. We probably know close to everything possible about each other by taking these surveys, and being friends for so long, but it’s a tradition.
5 Heather – The Miller Fam. Super cute cousin…always a pleasure to be around.
GO!!!(And in case you are wondering like I was...A meme (pronounced /miːm or mɛm/) consists of any unit of cultural information, such as a practice or idea, that gets transmitted verbally or by repeated action from one mind to another. Examples include thoughts, ideas, theories, practices, habits, songs, dances and moods and terms such as race, culture, and ethnicity. Memes propagate themselves and can move through a "culture" in a manner similar to the behavior of a virus. Thanks Wikipedia.) – thanks Arianne…I was wondering about that.

hard boiled eggs
Well...that doesn't sound too hard I thought to myself...so then I asked her a TON of questions...can I have string cheese, can I eat whole wheat bread, what about M&M's, to which she kindly replied, "ultimately you can eat whatever you want, but this is what I ate." Hmmm...ok, so I started today... I attempted to hard boil eggs...ok, you're thinking "attempted?" How hard could it be. So...I called my mom (an infinite source of cooking knowledge, albeit surprsing, since I thought she never cooked,) and asked her how to boil an egg. :) She tells me three minutes after the water starts boiling...well, I'm no spring chick, so I boiled them for 4 minutes. I got to work, cracked open the first egg...gooey yolk. YUCK!!! So...back in the ziploc bag it went...along with the other one...hoping I wouldn't have to smell rotten egg all day. So...I ate my freeze dried fruit (both bags), and went for a diet coke, which by the way, the friend said was a no go...when she said this, I laughed and bought a diet coke. So...by the time lunch rolled around (11:30a.m.) I was STARVING! Wallaby's...ok, I can do that. An entire plate of smoked turkey and veggies... ok, ok, I cheated with a tiny scoop of smashers and a few droplets of BBQ sauce. I wonder if that's indicative of how this is going to go? eh, we'll see. At this point, I tell my friend Arianne about my NEW fabulous diet...and which point, she laughs...and says it will last 4 days. Well...now that's what I like to call a challenge! So...here I am, blogging, and really wishing I was eating. I am now officially HUNGRY LIKE A WOLF!!! On that note, I'm off to Costco to find something I can eat. Out with the old, in with the new.
