Going crazy on Facebook

Ya'll can keep up with what I'm up to on Facebook too. Here's the link to my page and don't be shy! Send me a friend request!

First singles activity, first crush

(from left to right: Janael, Lori, Scott, me, Wyatt, and Pam)

I met some new friends off of LDSMingle.com. We went up to Jumpoff Canyon for a hike. I've since gotten a hiking high. Love it! And then we followed it up with a crepe dinner at Scott's place.

Not the best picture. But this is Scott. He's a hottie, nuff said.

May 2008


My roommates Liz and Karin.
You can't tell but in this picture I have a 102 degree temperature. I got strep so bad that when I got home I got to spend sometime in the hospital for a day getting loaded up on some super antibiotics. As much as I'm a "granola", I am thankful for modern medicine.
Where do birth junkies go whilst in Nashville? Not the Grand Ol' Opry! Never! We head to
The Farm!
The Farm is home to our fellow birth activist and midwife Ina May Gaskin who is a major pioneer in midwifery. This place is the closest I've witnessed to people living the Law of Consecration. Everyone works for one common goal, they all put in and every takes what they need. It's a very peaceful place, there is definitely a special spirit here. If it weren't for the ticks that we all took back to our hotel, I might consider spending a few more weeks here.

All of the homes and structures on The Farm are solar powered and very eco-friendly.

Most homes are made out of mud and clay. The local residents were so friendly and allowed us to come into their homes and photograph some very beautiful art.

Most homes and structures there had a live eco-system growing on the roof.


From the outside.

The Straw Cabin is made entirely from clay and straw and stuff is uber strong!

The world's largest jungle gym. lol! This was meant to be a meeting house, only they didn't have the funding to complete it and it's just sort of there.

Yes, I AM ALIVE!!!

A HUGE apology to all my faithful readers. Silly me thought I was invincible. Divorce kind of throws a bigger curve ball at you than ya planned. But I'm making my way back to life and doing the healing I need to do.

So without further ado, I'll be slowly updating this place. I have so much to tell ya'll!!! What I've been up since May, what the dating world is like, my new jobs, and my how my kiddies and the ex are doing. So sit tight and I'll get to it!

Still here

Sorry, life has been crazy for me. I've been really sick, and just got done with my Hypnobabies Instructor training(saving for another post). Just trying to adjust and make this transition smoother for everyone. I think once school is out for the kids, I'll be back on here more. Just be patient!

My college roomies

1998 - me, Colleen, and Trynda

2008 - Trynda pregnant with her 4th, me(single!), and Colleen pregnant with her 1st.

A few weekends back I got rare opportunity to go out with a few of my closest friends. Trynda and Colleen were my college roomies and we've stayed in touch ever since our crazy days at C.E.U. Us three live far apart now, so it is rare that we all find ourselves together on the same weekend.

We were partners in crime when we pranked the guys down the hall(everything from turning furniture upside down, to it being to moved down to the laundry room, and stealing their clothes and them stealing our bras and stringing them up in the hall for everyone to see), late nights singing "You Don't Own Me!"(from the movie The First Wives Club) at the top of our lungs into kitchen utensils after a breakup or just feeling erked by men in general, playing leap frog down the hall, my first taste of Starbucks icecream, walking in the nearby cemetary for peace and quiet, the boys belows us that would bang their broom on the ceiling because we were being too loud, annoying our other three, weird roommates, helping eachother through some very difficult times, me and Colleen getting stuck in a ditch with 2 hot guys whilst exploring the backwoods of Price, me and Trynda laughing til all hours of the night at the glowing stars on the ceiling(seriously, we must've been high on something because there's nothing funny about glowing stars on a ceiling. lol!).

We've seen eachother through boyfriends, breakups, engagements, weddings, babies, and now a divorce. I feel very blessed to have them as friends.

Hypnomom of the month

About a month ago I was interview by Kerry Tuschhoff, the founder of Hypnobabies, for my entrance into the hypnosis intructor training program coming up next week. She liked me so much that she asked me to be on her live radio show to talk about my children's births. It was great fun, who doesn't love telling their child's birth story? Here's the link. Enjoy!

*insert sad/witty title here*

I'm not sure exactly how you title the curve ball that life has given me. It could be "Single...again!" or "Back on the market" or "The big D word", whatever. If you couldn't already guess, my husband and have divorced. I just want to get it all out right now, so that I'm not explaining myself like I have been since it happened.

First off, I'm okay. Yes, this totally sucks. I'm loosing my best friend who I love dearly. I'm a whole lot of emotions right now, but I'm okay. Things are very amicable. Our oldest two are handling it well. I wish I could tell you more of the story. This will have to do for now. I would appreciate lots of prayers sent our way.

Lia Sophia party - pretty jewelry!

I lied! I have one more thing to post about. I'm having a Lia Sophia party here at my place this Wednesday, April 2nd, at 7 p.m. My sisters have been big fans of this jewelry, and really it's beautiful! I'd love everyone to come that can. Don't be shy! There'll be lots of refreshments. My address is 1962 E. 6400 S. Murray.

Please be patient

Life has thrown me a curve ball. I'll be back posting in a month or so. Wishing all of you the very best!
