Snappy Valley Boutique Fun

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.

These are adorable shoes from They are children (up to 3 years old and infants) shoes. Some are can take the squeaks out, and the ones sitting on the table are soft soled shoes. They are adorable. Check out their website. If you would like to order anything, please let me know and I will get them for you. They are $15 a pair, and if you buy 2 pairs you get the third pair half off. This is a REALLY good deal, and only offered through Snappy Valley Boutique.

More of Les Tres Chic Boutique in one of the bedrooms.

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.

This is Demi-Dos, adorable hats, gloves, scarfs, and clip on flowers that can be attached to hats, scarfs, clothes, and cute! They also had some adorable necklace sets and bracelets for really affordable prices.
We also had a couple of other vendors that I didn't get pictures of, unfortunately...
We had Sweet Suds Homemade Soap...which were adorable and a great stocking stuffer, and we had Howling Fun Games selling great board games for families. We also had my company, State of Hype, selling clothes, makeup, jewelry, treats, and some great stocking stuffer items.
I just want to thank all of our vendors, and especially Cathy Wood for all of her help. We hope to be able to put on another boutique in the Spring. In the meantime, if you need items from any of our vendors, please contact me.

...and the wait is over!!!

We have been called as Sunbeams teachers in the Primary. We have our first activity with the Primary in a couple of weeks. We have to create invitations for each person in our class and then plan an activity for them to get to know us. Any ideas would be much appreciated. Kenny is so glad that we got Sunbeams, but I would have liked kids that were a little bit they would appreciate my well planned out lessons...ha ha! We were released from the activities committee, but we are still helping with the ward Christmas party...I have to cook my very first turkey and ham. Oh, I think I'll be calling my mom! ...things were much easier when we were invisible. :)

Candy 'holics!

So...yes, you might thing that this is out of control...and it IS!!! For those of you who don't know, you can get amazing deals on treats right after Halloween. I went to Harmon's in Draper, which by the way, is the COOLEST grocery store ever. It is well worth the extra two minutes difference between going there, and going to the Albertson's in Lehi...but I'll tell you all about it in another blog... back to the candy. So...I wander down the leftover Halloween aisle only to see that all Halloween candy is on sale for $1-$2 a bag. Kenny was with me and I suggested we buy a few thing I know, we are $34 poorer...but I think we did buy some dishwashing detergent as well. :) ...but think about this...we are $29 richer in treats. you can see from this picture, if you ever have a sweet tooth, swing on by. I have it in my food storage, because I strongly believe that you can live off sugar alone for several years. ....which also brings me to my next it ever a good deal to buy things just because they are on sale, knowing that you probably don't really need them? I have been trying to be a bargain shopper lately, but have been noticing that I buy things I don't 15 boxes of cereal because it's only $1.50 a 10 2liter bottles of soda because it's free with a mail in rebate... When is bargain shopping really a bargain? or do you find that it just makes you spend more money on things you don't need?


Would anyone be interested in either hosting or going to a glitter toe party? For those of you who don't know what glitter toes are, here is a picture...

You can choose for a bunch of different cute, and festive for the Holidays. I would love your feedback.

10 Things I Remember from Growing Up...a trip down memory lane!

I took this post from Arianne's blog...thanks was just too fun, and made me miss the days of old...

1.) Pound Puppies - "The puppies have a variety of plush stuffed dog dolls with floppy ears and droopy eyes. They came in a variety of colors, some with spots. Each one comes in a carrying case with an adoption certificate. Smaller versions were also created, and a line of cats called Pound Purries was also released. Each authentic puppy had a heart shaped emblem near its tail that sported a "PP" logo with either a dog (Puppies) or cat (Purries) peeking around it." - wikipedia I LOVED my Pound Puppies. I had a dog, a cat, and a couple of smaller versions of my pound puppy. I believe my brother had a pound puppy as well. There are several pictures of us growing up with our pound puppies. The house it came in didn't last long...probably much like the houses the build-a-bears come in now, but I didn't long as I had my sweet, sweet puppy. I always felt bad for the kids who had homemade pound puppies...there was always something strange about their faces(the puppies, not the kids), and no cute little heart on its bottom.

2.) Lite Brite - I loved Lite Brite. Now, I don't exactly ever remember having my own lite brite, but I remember playing with them A LOT! ...I have no idea where I got my lite brite time in, but I did. I remember the black craft-like paper that you put over the lite brite, and I remember that there was always plenty of paper. I never liked the pre-patterned papers that it came with...I always liked making my own creations...pushing those pegs into the board...and then when the creation was complete...hitting the lite, and watching your artwork shine...oh what a glorious piece of artwork. It always made me so mad when someone else wanted to play with it, and then they would remove all of your bright shining pegs, and replace it with their own, undoubtedly awful rendering of a unicorn, ruining all the hours you had spent making your amazing piece of artwork. I think I want a Lite Brite for Christmas this year.

3.) Pee Wee's Big Adventure - Pee Wee's Big Adventure always reminds me of my best friend Nuala, that lived two houses down from me. She quoted the movie all the time...the most memorable line, "There's no basement in the Alamo." which she would always say in a big southern drawl. She would also laugh like Pee Wee which I thought was hilarious. Great movie from my childhood. ...and the next favorite...

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 falling asleep), and Big.
5.) Candy powder filled plastic fruits - I would like to be able to say that I had completely forgotten about these delightful plastic fruits filled with pixie stick type powder, but I have not. From time to time I will remember the fruits and wish that I had one...a plastic fruit filled with magical sweet powder inside. My grandma would walk us down to the gas station where we could pick out a treat...I would always choose the pineapple, although the strawberry was quite good too, and occassionally when they were out of all the really good flavors, I would settle on lime. I would unscrew the little green cap and put my mouth of the hole...and just dump the pure unadultured sweet sugar into my mouth...mmmm... Sometimes if you weren't careful, you would get a little spit in there, and then the sugar couldn't escape...I hated when this would I was extra cautious with mine. Oh plastic fruit filled with sugar...where are you now?

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 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.

I love

Ok, so I've been considering selling my wedding dress, so what do I do? I check out to see what other people are selling theirs for...get some comps if you know what I mean...and I come upon this:

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 - LY??

UGGS, our favorite australian apparel!

"Our Philosophy
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?

Now, the picture on the left depicts a celebrity wearing a pair of uggs...this is an unacceptable way to wear uggs...see how they are all lined in fur? now tell me when it would be acceptable to wear a tank top dress, and fur lined boots? When it's 90 degrees outside? I think not! Now, view the image of the celebrity on the right? This is also unacceptable wear for UGGS...if you have to wear a coat, and UGGS, then maybe you should cover up your legs too. Now, if you'll examine her coat too, you will see that it is fleece...a fleece coat, uggs, and a dress do NOT a fashionista make. of course, this is all "my opinion."

Now, here are a few circumstances when I believe that UGGS would be appropriate...

Now, you can see from this photo, that it is indeed leaves on the trees, full winter coat, and scarf. Well done friend.

Now, here is another circumstance when it is ok to wear UGGS:

So, a brief lesson for all you Cali girls who wear your UGGS in the SPRING, SUMMER, and FALL, it will NEVER be cold enough in these months for you to get away with wearing UGGS, and if you do choose to wear them anyway and you happen to get photographed, at least have sleeves on your dress, and stockings on your will give the impression that it MAY have been a cold day that day!

For those of you who still shamelessly check into my blog even though I haven't posted anything since MAY, here you are...something new for your reading pleasure.

The company I work for has started a blog...oh no! Our administrative assistant is now taking pictures of everything, and writing down everything EVERYONE says in the office. So's humiliating. I've been exposed for not wanting to answer the phones, having my neck meat removed, AND moving upstairs from THE CAVE. least I haven't been video taped on the slider cycle. ...see blog for video.

At any'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!

My Mom - My Hero

This is a picture of my beautiful mother, my hero. She is quite possibly one of the most amazing people I shall ever know. Last year, in June my mom found out that she had colon cancer. I can remember the day as if it was just seconds ago. I had never felt that sick, sad, scared, sorrowful, and hurt in my entire life. I could not even imagine my life without my mother. She is not only my mother, but a best friend. As soon as I got off the phone with my mom, I fell to the floor in humility, asking the Lord, our Savior to allow my mom to fully recover, that this would not be her time to leave us. I knew from that moment forward that she would be healed. She spent the next 8 months of her life in the most pain she will ever feel, scared, sick, and tired...she did not complain...she did what she had to do to get better. She tried to stay so strong for the rest of us when I know that inside, she probably just wanted to quit. I have never been more proud of my mom in my entire life. She is an example to all. She is always ready and willing to help. She is thoughtful, loving, and perfectly imperfect. I love to hear her voice. Sometimes I call her on the phone, just so I know she's there...just so I can hear her. Her laughter is beautiful. Whenever I am sad, or scared, or I just don't know what to do, I call my mom. She always has the right words to say, and always makes me feel better. The last few days have been difficult. It was time for her follow-up scans and blood work. I am beyond happy to report that my mom is 100% cancer free. Mom, in case you read this, I want you to know that I am so thankful for you. I am so thankful that you are a strong, independent woman that I have always been proud to call mom. I am thankful for your example, and for your love of the Savior. I love you mom!

Lauren Conrad (LC)

Ok, so here I am...admitting that I want to be Lauren Conrad when I grow up! For those of you who have been living in a closet for the last couple of years, Lauren Conrad, also known as LC, has been on a couple of reality shows, started her own clothing line, and is pretty much the cutest! She started out on a reality show called "Laguna Beach" that chronicled the lives of overly spoiled children, going to highschool, and hanging out. After Lauren graduated, she headed to the Hollywood Hills, and now currently stars in "The Hills." You could say I'm a little obsessed with her, but not overly. :) ...just so you don't get the "Kelli is creepy" vibe. On "The Hills" Lauren has friends, a job at Teen Vogue, and a love of seedy Hollywood clubs. I think I could leave her job, her friends, and the Hollywood clubs behind...but, it's the adorable hair, clothes, and job outside the show that I love. If you look at this picture closely, you can see that Lauren braids her know who does that now...this girl. :) ha ha. I just really like her fashion sense. Kenny teases me a lot about my crush on Lauren. We met her in Las Vegas at Project (fashion market for purchasers.) I made Kenny take his picture with her because she was so little...I didn't want to see myself standing next to her. And it is TRUE that the camera makes you gain 10lbs...she is tiny. Anyway, there it is...all out on the line....I HEART Lauren Conrad.

How Spicy are you???

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.

It's beginning to look a lot like...spring!

I'll tell you right now that I have issues sleeping if it's too, I finally talked Kenny into buying a ceiling fan for our bedroom. (this was about a year ago.) So, since then I have checked out Lowe's and Home Depot each about 3 times. I have yet to find a ceiling fan that I liked. So I broke down and went to a lighting store. I actually found a fan that I like. $206, that's not too bad I thought as I looked at the hanging tag. About $50 more than any fan I sort of liked at Lowe's. I proceed to tell the clerk that I'll take the fan...keeping in mind that the ceiling fan in the store, hanging with the price tag on it, has a light on it. She asks me if I would like the light...ummm...of course I'd like the light...aren't I looking at the light? oh, that's extra, and oh, you like the glass around the light, oh, that's extra too. So, at this point, we've added on another $50. Does this fan come with a remote I ask? This is important because if I get too cold, or too hot, I need to be able to turn it off/on without leaving the comfort of my bed. A remote? she asks as if shocked to find out that I would want a remote with it. No, it does not come with a remote, but for another $38 I can add the remote to it. Ok, well...we need to do that. Then she asks me how long I would like it to hang from the ceiling. It comes with a six inch drop. Ok, so what if I want the 12 inch drop, oh, that's another $6. When all is said and done, my $206 ceiling fan is now $298 with a small discount that she so lovingly gave me. My rant for the day: PLEASE MARK YOUR PRICE TAGS AS IS!!!! I don't want to know how much one piece of the puzzle is...I want to know how much the WHOLE puzzle is. Oh well, it's just money, right? Now all I need to do is find someone who can hang it for bono anyone?

Free Hugs?

Thanks to Arianne for posting this on her blog and thanks to her blalker Mindi...

This video makes me HAPPY!!! ...and makes me want to give someone a hug.

Holy Smokes! This is a long post.

5 Things Meme

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
3 Saipan
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.

I like this match better. :)

Hungry Like a Wolf keeping with my usual fashion, I've started another diet. I had been noticing that a friend of mine had been getting thinner, and thinner. So, I asked her...are you sick, tape worms, heroin, TrimSpa? find out, none of answer to her answer..."Hungry Like a Wolf." She told me that for two months the following foods were all that she ate:

skim milk
hard boiled eggs

Well...that doesn't sound too hard I thought to 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. 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. that's what I like to call a challenge! 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.
