On November 4th Christian and I will go to our Stake Center and vote for the next President of the United States. I don't want to vote for McCain or Obama...I feel I will be voting for one of the lesser evils BUT it is my right to vote and I am going to take advantage of that. I am glad that I have a choice unlike other less fortunate people in this world. So I have educated myself on each candidate and I have decided to vote for McCain. When I say that I am voting for him I absolutely, positively am not saying that I agree with everything he has planned for us but, like I said before, he is the lesser of the evils in my OPINION. I really like Palin's veiws...she has many of the same values that I do and it makes me feel a little less nervous to have her by McCains side. Anyway, I am not going to go on about this because I am not trying to change anyones vote I just wanted to let you all know who I am voting for. I lost all respect for Obama when I found out he doesn't salute the United States flag during our anthem. I know some of you are thinking of how petty this might be and I know there are bigger issues but this is one of the first things I learned about Obama- and his qualities or lack thereof just haven't redeemed him from that act.
ANYWAY, in the end I am voting for McCain because I feel I should and I won't go against my instincts. This is all my opinion and I completely respect anyone with differing opinions so I hope you respect mine. With that said I am curious to know who everyone is voting for and why...the only rule is this: No name calling...it doesn't solve anything ;)

This past week, no matter what anyone tells you to the contrary...
I most certainly did not think of the U2 song, "Stuck in a moment" and think of how stuck in a rut I am. Nope not me...I don't feel stuck in a moment that I can't get out of! I haven't been thinking this for the past two weeks AT ALL! I would NEVER compare my life to the chorus of this song...NEVER.
I most certainly did not let Ava spill yogurt on the floor and leave it there to get sticky and gross. NO WAY would I do that!! And I didn't just step over all the macaroni and cheese she threw on the ground either. GROSS!
I absolutely positively did not wear the same pajamas two FULL days in a row without getting dressed. NOPE not me! That would be plain old lazy and once again GROSS! Who does that?! Only people that feel stuck in a rut right?! Nope Not ME!!
I most certainly did not let Ava watch hours of TV a day so I could read a book. NO WAY. That would make me a bad mom and I most certainly am not! I did not let Ava watch "The Little Mermaid" three times a day. That is a waste of the poor girls brain...NOPE I would certainly not do that!
I most certainly did not let the house become a disaster while I lazily sat on the couch and thought of all the cleaning that needed to be done. Nope NOT ME. I DID NOT let the sink fill up with dishes before I MADE myself do them. I did not let the floors go unmopped for two weeks (which is horrible in a house of ALL PERGO). Definitely NOT ME!!
I did not start dieting and exercising just to end the same day...nope NOT ME. I am WAY MORE motivated than that.
I most certainly have not felt like crap the past couple of weeks. I have definitely not looked at myself in the mirror and thought of how horrible I look lately. I have most certainly not put myself down this week.
I have definitely not thrown stuff on the craft room floor because I don't want to deal with it. I don't do that cause that is lazy. The craft room is not cluttered with random things from the house that I just don't feel like putting away. NO WAY!
I most certainly have not decided that I HATE making my blog cute. NO WAY. I have not thought about ending my blog all together because I feel it is a waste of my time. Definitley NOT ME!
I have definitely not slept in so long the past couple of weeks that I wake up with a headache. That would just be crazy! I have not stopped waking up with Christian in the morning because I just can't seem to get my butt out of bed.
And there is SOOOOOO much more that I most certainly have not done this past week but I will leave it at that!

This was a little project that Chelsie and I did a couple of weeks ago. It was VERY easy and it can be used for a bunch of different things. Chelsie gave it to her sister, Caitlin, to use as a jewelry box! I was thinking that is would make a cute gift for a stressed out friend...."Emergency Kit" with bath soap, lotion, fingernail polish, etc. I am definitely going to do more of these!!
This last week we went to a pumpkin patch with TJ, Chelsie, and Makaylee. We had a lot of fun and Ava was amazed at all the "pun-kins" When it came down to carving the girls were NOT interested!! They were VERY grossed out...as was TJ!
And this one explains itself...she is seriously SO NAUGHTY!!!
