First and foremost my favorite Band right now is:
Paper TonguesNow, let me just say... this band is absolutely AMAZING! I discovered them on Itunes one night and have been lucky enough to see them live TWICE now!!! They are different from what's currently out there and that's why I'm so obsessed with them. They have mastered the art of fusing rock, funk, rap and soul all into one and it's incredible! If you like hearing something fresh and new, something different and fun, I HIGHLY recommend this band. "Higher", "Ride to California", "Love like you", "Soul" and "For the people" are just a few of my favorites. All these songs show how versatile they are. All their songs are excellent though. I could really go on and on and on about them but I'll stop while I'm ahead.
Now, for those of you who don't know, I have pretty long hair right now, so this is very extreme. I just have this urge to cut it all off! I LOVE these short Do's and I wish I could pull something like this off. Sadly know it's a huge shot in the dark. One I'm not sure if I'm ready for but none the less... super super cute cuts. Maybe one day?
Sweet sugarless candy:
Russel Stover Pecan Delight
These sweet sugar free candies are delicious! There are several different flavors but this one is particularly good. Being on a sugar free diet can make you crazy but these sweet snacks are just the thing to kick your craving! They can be found in any grocery store.
I just got myself a pair of these SUPER fun SUPER comfy jeggings from the GAP. I am IN LOOOOVE with these pants and I plan on getting myself another pair. You have got to at least go try them on so you can know what I'm talking about! I promise you won't regret it!
Now onto Hair:
Goody's Spin Pin
These little pins are UNBELIEVABLE! I'm tell you... who ever thought of these is a complete genius! They work like a charm and they do exactly what they advertise which is so wonderful. I hate when you are disappointed by something you expect to work and it doesn't. Nothing makes me more mad. I use these just about everyday! They are way to much fun.
So pretty much anything lemon I am obsessed with right now. The sent and flavor! Of course my obsession would come when lemon is not really in season. Just try and find a lemon cookie/bar right now. I dear you! I guess I'll just have to make my own then.
These days I seem to be putting Cinnamon on just about everything. My cereal, ice cream, fruit, you name it, I probably sprinkled some cinnamon on it. I was even tempted to put it on my meat that I was seasoning the other day! I know, I'm crazy but that just shows you how much I love this delicious spice! And it's good for you which makes it even better!
HoneyVery similar to Cinnamon, I seem to want to put honey on just about anything and everything. With the exception of meat. That may be crossing the line on this one. Sadly, since I'm on my "sugar free" diet, I haven't been able to use honey as much but it's still an obsession and I think this one will be one for a very long time given the fact it's been one for a very long time already.
From flavors to Food:
Hummus is probably at the top of this "favorite things" list. I mean I really can't get enough. I CRAVE this stuff!! Not only can you buy great flavors at any grocery store you can make this at home and it's super simple! If you'd like a recipe just let me know. It's such a great, healthy snack!
Gold eye shadow and berry lip shades
I absolutely love BOTH of these colors right now. Not only do they look great separately but together is even better! They compliment each other so well. I've had lots of fun pairing them this season. They both work with any skin tone (in my opinion) so have fun and play it up!
Not only do I love this lotion in general but it's this particular scent that is my favorite. Jasmine Juicie. It is to die for!!! Such a delicious scent. It smells so good and I can smell it all day which I love! I hate when scents fade so quickly. I get this lovely lotion at ULTA.
Last but not least:
Ice breakers mintsFor someone who can't chew gum this is a great alternative. I ALWAYS have a thing of Ice Breakers in my purse. Always. Oh, and I hear they freshen your breath even more than gum and that works for me!
Well, I hope you have enjoyed a few of my "favorite things". I have a million more but this seems like a pretty good list for now. I may update here and there when more great things come to mind. If nothing else maybe you've found a few things you'd like to add to your Christmas wish list this year! I sure hope so cause all these things have brought something good into my life. It's the little things, right?! I hope you all have a wonderful and joyful Christmas this year!

I'm sure being in Alabama on the coast didn't help my itch.. in fact, it's probably safe to say that it spread the itch.

Yep! That's right people. I am rollin' duuurty. Ok not really but I am LOVIN' my new Mini. It's been so SO fun. And I got an amazing deal and I'm very grateful for that. Thanks Steve Francom! He's the good man behind this great deal. I couldn't be happier!
Ok, so the next exciting thing in my life right now is HCG. Have you heard of it?? I don't think it really should be in the category of "exciting" but for now I'm putting it there. If you haven't heard of it.. I'm shocked! It's a diet that's pretty well known and I'm on it. It's pretty hard. I can only have 500 calories a day. INSANE, right?! I know, I know - but to me it's worth it. I've only been on it for three days and it's a three week diet so I have a way to go BUT I've already lost three pounds in three days. That is my motivation. I will keep you updated on how things are going. If things are not going good, like I'm not loosing weight then I most likely will not keep you updated. Just fyi. ;)
Next exciting thing on my list of exciting things... is... I'm going to ALABAMA! My sweet niece Taylor is getting baptised July 17th which is her 8th birthday and my whole family will be going to celebrate this very exciting time in her life. It happens to be the day before my 25th birthday as well. I can't think of a better way to celebrate this BIG birthday than being with my whole family! I can't wait. Maybe I'll find me a good southern man while I'm there. Then I could add that to my "exciting" list. That wouldn't be a bad birthday present either. I wouldn't be mad at that.

(White or a color?)
I'm working real hard and saving my penny's so that maybe one day I can get one. Now my only delema is what color? I LOVE the white. It's classy and lovely but at the same time I'm like do I need a color?!
(a color or white?)
I mean it's a Mini! Maybe I need a red one? What do you think? I could use the help. All color idea's are welcome!
This was my experience and can I say - I'm glad it is over. It was very scary. All I know is I'm grateful for AAA. It is so worth spending the money.

Now this field here in Az doesn't really compare to Safeco field in Seattle but I will take what I can get! I took the pictures of the game from my phone so they aren't the best pictures you've most likely ever seem but you get the idea, right?
It's the little and simple things in life that make us the happiest. Baseball is that for me.

Little Sophie was the first of the grand babies I got to be around right after she was born. She even lived in the same house as me - so I got to see her all the time! It was so wonderful. She was the most darling little baby girl. So sweet and precious! I miss being able to hold her whenever I want to and cuddle her whenever I want to. She is getting so big now and as expected - such a little beauty. Just like her older sisters. She is the chunkiest little thing! I wish I could squeeze her right here right now! I love love LOVE you little Sophers and can't wait till I get to cuddle you again!
Owen James FinnestadDecember 29th 2009
Owen is the last of these beloved babes of our family. I have not met this little guy get and it is heartbreaking. All I've seen so far are the darling pictures his mom sends and so far he is as precious as the rest of the little ones. He looks just like his older brother Braeden when he was a baby. He is such a beautiful little baby boy. I can't wait till I get to hold and kiss him as much as I want. And hopefully that will be very soon! Even though I haven't met you yet little Owen I love you so much!! Can't wait till I get to give you my love!! See you soon little baby!
As you can tell - I'm in love with all 6 of these darling little ones (some not so little any more). I am so excellently blessed to have them in my life. I miss them every day and can't wait till I can see them again. Here are a few more pics for your viewing pleasure. These are my favorite ones of them through the years...
More to come....
