Because it's my RIGHT

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 doesn't solve anything ;)

Not Me! Monday

Okay so I know it is Wednesday but I just have to do this today...I need to get this all out of my system and this is the best way to do it. It is so fun. If you want to do it then check out the Not Me! Monday rules at In a nutshell you write down the things that you did not do this week but in actuality you ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY DID DO THEM!! This is very therapuetic and just what I need at this point in my life!!

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!

Four in the morning!!

I woke up at 4:00am this morning and, try as I may, I COULD NOT go back to sleep. So what do I do? I get up, take a shower, and BLOG!! I'm sure I could have been more productive but I figured that this was the last time I will be able to blog until we are home from the deer hunt next week.

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 was TJ!

And this one explains itself...she is seriously SO NAUGHTY!!!
