To My BFF in Tennessee:

This is totally church appropriate.  Thank you muchas gracias for your tape.  You should be getting an oh most wondeful Christmas package on Wednesday.  (Save the slacker jokes for later.)  And you're totally not even going to believe how smart I am when you get a CD in the mail next time.  Boo yah.  Ok.  Peace like a river.  (For real?)


(This is our fav, Mr. Stevens, singing 'Come Thou fount of Every Blessing'.  Very luxury.)

Winter Wonderland.

Jason Mraz + Christmas music = a very happy girl

A very Basker Christmas.

On the last day of my trip to Cali, Gavin Basker had a Christmas performance.  He was a little shy at first and did not want to stay with his preschool teacher, but he put on his Santa hat and faced the spotlight.  I hope that my kids are just as adorable as this little fella.
The young gentleman standing next to Mr. Basker started to cause trouble half way through the performance.  Luckily Gavin told him that there was no naughty business allowed.

(Sorry this video is flipped)



P.S.  You're welcome X-tina.

I'm textually active.

First off, big thanks to Elayna for the wonderful blog title.  Thanks for being such  a great friend and an even better study buddy!!!!  (I'm sure your grades will be fantastic!)

So, when you make bad decisions and live in Utah, you have to drive in the snow during the winter.  This is rather unluxury.  So, when I came back from Cali late Monday night it was blizzarding (haha, I know it's not a word) and it has continued to do so ever since.  I had to work up in the SLC on Tuesday morning and I took me over 2 hours to get to work because of the darn snow.  (I didn't want to say darn there, but it's naughty business to say the other word.)

Yesterday morning my commute was fine, thank goodness, but this morning was just as bad as Tuesday.  It took me an hour and 45 minutes to drive from my house to my office.  That is highly unluxury.  Next week I might just have to leave at like 4 in the morning and hope that I'll get to work on time.

Warning, here will start my rant.  WHY do people in little tiny cars always drive like maniacs when it is snowing??  It is usually like a Geo Metro that will just go flying by you in the midst of a blizzard.  It's like, dude, I know you don't have 4-wheel drive.  What are you thinking????? This drives me absolutely insane.  Plus, I don't understand why cars without 4-wheel drive aren't mandated to stay out of the fast lane on snowy days.  If they would all just stick to the right side of the road then I could go faster and get to work quicker.  Come on people!

Ok, also I just wanted everyone to know how wonderful I am.  This morning when I got onto the freeway and noticed that it was crawling (15 mph) I could have very well hopped into the car pool lane and been on my way.  I vacillated with this for a good 20 minutes before I decided that I would be a good, honorable person and stay in the the regular lane. 

It's a good thing I chose the right, because within the next few minutes I saw THREE UHP officers driving in the old car pool lane.  (Why they are allowed to drive in that lane when they only have 1 person in their car is unbeknownst to me!)  

Lessons learned:  Have 4-wheel drive and CTR.

Happy Birthday Gabrielle!

My baby sister becomes a teenager today.  CRAZY!  I love you Gabs.

Domestication.

One day when I was in California my Life Coach and her executive assistant had a wedding to attend.  I stayed at home with the Baskers.  Haydan was rummaging through the cupboards and found a sugar cookie mix thingy and immediately proposed that we stop what we were doing (watching the Polar Express for the third time) and bake.  Haydan was a little nervous about my ability to roll the dough (So was I!), but everything turned out fine and we had a very fun, Christmasy night!
Bernic lost a tooth the night before I came, but she waited to put it under her pillow for the Tooth Fairy until I had seen it.
This young gentleman kept telling me that he was keeping an eye on me.  Mainly because I put away his "Pola Espwess" train when he was not done playing with it.
Gavin Basker was more interested in eating his cookies than decorating them.  He likes to have a little medicine (aka Chocolate milk) along with his cookies.
Haydan decorated a reindeer and multiple Baby Jesus cookies (which were mistaken for Girl Scouts!).
Bronte decorated many fancy cookies.  She also used almost a whole container of sprinkles.  She's my kind of gal.

Just remember: "Brainiac rhymes with maniac".

I'm sorry I've been such a lousy blogger lately. Really, I am. I've just been really busy doing more important things. I'm down in my favorite state right now visiting my life coach. (It's very important for everyone to have a life coach and to consult with them often.) I've already learned a lot of important life lessons this week, and more are certainly to come.

I also had my interview at Loma Linda University yesterday. I think it went really well, and I would LOVE to go to dental school there. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

Ok, that's all the time I have right now. I'm a very busy person. I'll blog again later.

P.S. Dear Anonymous/Brendon,
You'll probably read this before you get your package in the mail. So, I'm very sorry that I am such a horrible BFF, but I promise to be better at writing!!!! It'll be my New Year's resolution.

Much Ado about nothing.

It has been brought to my attention (thanks, Jackie) that I have been rather neglectful of my blog this week.  I apologize.  I've just been busy doing a lot of this:
I love my job, and I ADORE the people that I work with, but working in SLC means that I'm out the door my 6:20 in the morning and that I don't get home until almost 7 at night.  When you do this 4 days in a row, it makes you a bit tired.  And, pretty much everything else gets pushed to the back of my brain, including blogging.  Throw in the whole cell phone situation and that pretty much explains no blogging for a week.

But, enough of that.  Let me amuse you now.

So, sometimes I like to fall asleep listening to my iPod (which is built into my iPhone).  I'll put on a little Michael Buble and before I know it I'm asleep.  The only problem is, I still have the headphones in my ears, and the music is still playing.  This happened last night.  I kept waking up and hearing Mr. Buble's amazing voice, but in my sleep-induced trance I couldn't figure out how to take the headphones out or how to turn the music off.  This kept happening till almost 5 in the morning when I finally realized what was going on and put the iPhone away.  So, my ? for you is:  Is this normal?  Do other people do this too?  Or, am I just weird?  (Don't answer that last one!)  

Lesson learned:  don't fall asleep while listening to your iPod.

WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am SO upset right now it's not even funny.  So, 2 months ago I quit my Cricket cell phone service and signed on with AT&T since they have international plans (I am moving abroad you know!).  Everything has been fine, I have LOVED my iPhone, but then today around noon I started getting calls from random #'s that I've never seen before.  I was working so I didn't pay too much attention to it, but then after work I realized that there were like 12 different #'s that had tried to call me that afternoon.  I also noticed that I hadn't gotten a text message since the morning.  Then, I called my mom and she was like 'why did you just send me a text that said holla back'??  I was like I didn't, and I checked and I haven't sent her a text in over a week.  RANDOM.  So I start thinking about it and I think that my # must 'somehow' be crossed with someone else's.  So, I call AT&T, and they were very nice and helpful, but they had NO clue how this might have happened.  They did however offer to change my #, but I wasn't too keen on that.  

So, then I'm almost home and I get a call from another random #, so I answer it and it's a guy who tells me that his brother went into Cricket to get a new cell phone today and that my # was the # they gave him.  Confused yet??  So, all of our calls and texts have been getting switched.  UGH.  So, I call Cricket, and after about 10 transfers I finally get through to a girl who knows what to do but tells me that the department in charge of this kind of stuff is closed until the morning.  I POLITELY tell her that that is unacceptable and that the problem needs to be resolved IMMEDIATELY.  After being on hold for about 40 minutes and talking to 2 different supervisors, I FINALLY convince them to cut off service to the new guys #.  

So, where am I going with this you might ask.  I just wanted to let all of you know that if you texted or called me today and thought that I was ignoring you by not responding I was doing no such thing.  I love you all very much and I would never do that to you.  I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.  

(At least it makes for good blogging material, right.)  I will now go take a bunch of Advil.

"I wanted to do Hood Rat stuff with my friend"

Oh the joys of Thanksgiving.  I was introduced to this wonderful video last night after a little turkey.  I dare you to try not to laugh while watching it.

Luxury Television.

So, Jacquelina and I may have been a little bored last night around midnight.  Luckily we found something really fun to do.  We made a talkshow, Luxury Television.  We had a lot of special celebrities come by the show and had wonderful interviews with all of them.

First up, the original Hot Mess, Kim from 'Real Housewives of Atlanta'.


Next, Beth from 'Dog the Bounty Hunter'.



Britney Spears was let out of the house just for this interview.



We drug Angelina away from Brad and the kiddies for this:



Lastly we had my personal fav, Paris Hilton.  That's hot.

Twilight.

So, I liked it.  I just didn't love it.  The book was soooooooooooooooooooooooo much better, but I think that is always to be expected.  It really bugged me that they didn't follow the book closely enough, everything felt out of synch.  I had my idea of what everything looked liked, and nothing was close, so that was just kinda weird.  Oh well.  Now, for a more in depth analysis, because I'm sure you all 'really' care what I thought.  :)

Observation #1:  I thought 'Emmett' was a lot hotter than 'Edward'.  Not really the best way to start out the movie.  ('My' Edward is just way better looking.)  I thought R. Patts did a very good job, but as far as the whole 'being the finest creature on the planet', not so much...
Observation #2:  The Cullen Family was hardly in the movie at all, which was weird.  Esme was only in like 2 scenes,  Jasper had like 1 line...   Plus, weren't Alice and Bella like 'friends'??

#3:  Why did they have to make Jacob cute?  I don't even read the wolf parts in the books.

#4:  Ok, the part where Edward sucks the venom out of Bella's arm was just bizarre.  Seriously, my friend Cassidee and I were hysterically laughing.

#5:  Overall it was just too awkward.  And, I'm usually fine with awkward.  But, there were parts in this movie that were just uncomfortable because they were so poorly filmed.  It wasn't as cute and lovey-dovey as it seems when I have read the book.  But whatever, I'm glad that I saw it and I am oh most definitely glad that I didn't see it at midnight.

Now, I'm off to find an Edward of my very own.  Ciao.

I'm off,

To go see Twilight.  I really hope that it's good and doesn't ruin the books for me.  
Oh, and I found this funny little gem earlier today.  It's the 'missing' Twilight script.  Haha.  It's really just a bunch of pics from the movie with some creative changes to the dialogue.  I thought it was pretty funny.

I don't cry.

Ever.  But, whenever I read this website I get very teary eyed.  Having a wonderful family is definitely a gift, and I think I've got one of the best families around.  

P.S.  Can I tell you how much I LOVE it that most of my cousins have blogs??  I don't know what I would do without this great technology.  I love all of you.

Slip-n-Slide

So, I was chatting with Shacklyn on Facebook about an hour ago and she reminded me of a very funny story.  This happened probably about 5 years ago, so I was 16.  I had come home from high school one afternoon and didn't feel good at all.  I went and laid down in the family room and fell asleep.  Next thing I know, I am throwing up and making a b line to the kitchen sink (why I didn't go for the bathroom IDK!).  Unfortunately I was already really sick and so I threw up all over the wood floor in the kitchen and I slipped and fell.  So, I'm sitting there covered in my own vomit, totally out of it and feeling like a complete idiot.  The best part is that there were a bunch of neighbor kids over playing and they caught the whole thing.  

I probably shouldn't have told this story because it's extremely embarrassing, but I did it so YOU could get a good laugh.  Jac and I are thinking of doing a re-inactment and bringing you this lovely memory on video.

P.S.  If you're wondering why the all the posts today, it's because I'm totally graduated now and so I have too much free time on my hands!

Confession.

I have a lot of dreams about teeth.  I mean, like pretty much every night.  Sometimes I have nightmares where I think that one of my teeth fall out, or I have like embarrassingly ugly teeth.  Last night I woke up in a panic because I was 'sure' that my wisdom teeth (or 3rd molars, or tooth #'s 1, 16, 17 & 32, or just simply the 8's) were coming in again.  Now, I know this is just me being a total worrier, but really I think about teeth like all of the time.  If I can feel the tiniest bit of plaque anywhere on my teeth I have to go brush.  And I floss at LEAST once a day.  If you knew what about the biofilm layer and all of the other junk that hides out in between your teeth, you would make flossing a top priority.  I am also a firm believer in ACT restoring mouth wash. 

Also, I think that Orthodontic care should be considered just as important as regular dental check ups.  I am a firm believer that there is coordination between common ailments and misaligned teeth and malocclusion.  When I get to dental school this is the area that I want to really research.  It is just starting to be discussed and researched and I want to be able to really solve some of these problems and help people!  I wish it was December 1st already...

P.S.  If you are bored, Google 'supernumerary teeth'.  Very interesting.

What I'm listening to.

So, I thought it would be cool for me to post my 25 top played songs from my iTunes.  I have a lot of music on there so for a song to make it to the top 25 I must listen to it A LOT.  So, here ya go.  If you click on the song title it takes you to the video.  You're welcome.

1.  I Will Follow You Into The Dark - Death Cab for Cutie
2.  Stellar - Incubus
3.  Bleeding Love - Jesse McCartney

Attention:

I am calling out most of the blogs I read.  UPDATE YOUR BLOGS PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!

And for those others of you who don't have blogs, make one.  I promise you'll enjoy it!

Instead of going to London,

I'm considering following the Jazz around for the rest of the season.  It seems that the only way they can win is when they have someone cheering for them.  I oh most definitely could be that person.

In other news, I worked today.  When I left the house this morning it was pitch black outside.  When I left the office this evening it was pitch black outside.  Do we see a theme going on here?  Luckily, I get to do it all over again tomorrow.  Yay me.

Celebrate.

My blog has been around for a whole year as of today. In other words I have been luxurifying your lives for 365 days. I think that is rather luxury. Here's to many more years of 'The Luxury Life".

Love Story.



I am 'loving' this song by Taylor Swift. I think most of her songs are great and they are easy to sing along with. Plus, how cute is the video!

Friday, November 14, 2008

EBAY here I come.

I'm thinking of 'selling' my NBA fan status to another team. The Jazz aren't playing with any heart, and I can't handle it anymore.

Top Options Include:
1- Cleveland
2- Boston
3- LA, (yes, that officially makes me a traitor, but hey, at least they give their fans something to look forward to)

Thanks David Stern and Co. for making me a very unhappy girl.

Thursday, November 13, 2008

Please,

Go to NBA.com and vote for Deron Williams to be an All-Star. He oh most definitely deserves it.
I am thinking that I would like to go to a car store where they can put stickers on your car. I think that driving the Escalade around with a sign that says "8>3, vote D. Will" would get a lot of votes. I wonder what my dad will say...

?

Remember when I wanted to name one of my children California and my life coach vetoed that idea?? What if I named a boy Korver? I kinda like it. It's unique and it's a wonderful name sake.

Chivalry isn't dead after all.

I want, NO, I NEED, a boyfriend like Edward Cullen. Every man should read the Twilight books. I think they'd learn a lot. I am 'SO' excited for the movie to come out next Friday. I am going to start reading the book over again right now!

Dear L.C.:

Here is what I wore yesterday:
Note that these are not my actual boots.  Mine are 'a lot' cuter.  They are BCBG from Nordstrom, but I don't think they sell them there anymore :(.


You can buy this dress here.  But, I have the gray one.  And I wore the white long sleeve t underneath the dress.  It was 'really' cute.  And obviously, I filled it out better on top!  HAHA.  And, I wore some yellow jewelry to accessorize.  

Hurry up and come up here so we can go shopping.

Have a wonderful day at the gym!

Love,
D

EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW.

So, I was on my way to the SLC for work this morning.  I am totally minding my one business, cruising down the road when I hear honking.  Not like panic, accident, annoying honking, but like the kind of honk you do when you honk at someone you know to say hi.  I'm like what?  So I look over and there is a guy in a giant red truck waving at me.  Needless to say I was grateful for the big engine in the Escalade and I punched the gas and got as far away from creepy truckdriver man as possible.  I know I'm really cute and that I have a hot car, but please don't try and be 'friendly' on the freeway.  It is uncalled for and is potentially very dangerous.  Plus, what made him think I would even be remotely interested.  As if.

Sunday, November 9, 2008

P.S.

I am glad that so many of you have already told me that we have the same favorite Christmas song.  That makes me happy.  And,  I really can't stop looking at my blog.  I think it is one of the cutest things I have ever seen!  I think that when I grow up I shall decorate for Christmas in pink, green and red (with sparkles of course!).

Happy Christmas!

Yeah, so it's still almost 2 months away, but it is snowing here in Utah already. I really love Christmas, particularly Christmas music. My fav album of all time is Donny Osmond's 'Christmas At Home'. Seriously, I've had it since I was 10, and I LOVE IT. My favorite song is "Mary, Did You Know?", it is so beautiful. Anyway, I hope ya'll are getting into the Christmas spirit early this year!

Friday, November 7, 2008

I don't know...



I found this sneak peak of the Twilight movie. It's not the greatest quality, but hey, what do you expect? It seems REALLY cheesy to me. What do you guys think?

Sunday, November 2, 2008

What Was I Thinking?

So, my friends on the Jazz blog that I am a member of thought it would be fun to create something called a 'Fantasy Basketball League.' I was like, ok this could be fun. I think it is something that most college age males participate in, in hopes of winning and to keep away from doing their homework. Since I am graduated and don't have a lot going on, I thought that it would be a 'perfect' waste of time... Haha. Anyway, I don't know what I have gotten myself into. There is like a 500 page rule/strategy book that I'm supposed to read and there's going to be a draft and frankly, I don't even know how to get on the actual website. I'm a hot mess. However, I did come up with a strategy of my own: Pick the 12 hottest players in the NBA. KK is obviously #1 with D. Will coming very close behind at #1.1. So anyway, I will probably lose, but that doesn't matter, right?

UPDATE: Luckily I picked KK as my #1 draft pick in the first round. Yes, I was ridiculed. But, hey I am loyal.

Halloween 2008



Apparently when you're a little bit older, it's harder to find an original costume.  Luckily Peter came up with this.  Pretty ingenious.

Raise your Voice.

I voted today (early).  Now it's your turn to get out and baROCK the vote.  HAHAHA.  (I know that will get a few of your hearts racing...

Future?

Ok, so I am a huge fan of making fun of these stickers that everyone puts on the back of their cars.  Seriously people, please don't.  I happened to come across a website that has the same idea.  And since I'm not your typical Utah Valley girl who got married at 19, has a 2 year old and another on the way, I decided I would make it a little creative.  Hey, a girl can wish.  Now I want everyone to go and make their own and post it on their blog, and please be funny when doing it.

Sorry.



I know that I need to blog. I just don't WANT to blog right now. But, amusing posts are on the way. I promise. In the mean time, this fine looking gentleman got a haircut.  I really just like to look at him.  He's very x-exy.  The season has now officially begun, and I have a very busy calendar until at least the end of April.  In other news, I went to a debate this evening for the Congressional spot in my district.  I love a good debate, and this one did not disappoint.  You should all probably try to be more political like me.  It's luxury.

WHAT!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

There are NO boys in my London Study Abroad program. Apparently normally there a a few, but not in mine. Oh well, the handbook states that we are banned from dating anyone in the program, or any locals. So, it's like being on a mission. Great. So, any plans I had of meeting a charming English boy and falling in love are ruined.

P.S. Jacqueline - maybe I'll look Jonathan up while I'm there. hahahaha.

Lovebug.

So, I don't really get the whole fascination with the Jonas Brothers. It's probably like how the people a few years older than me didn't get my obsession with the BSB. Oh well. But, I'm totally digging their new song 'Lovebug'. The video is pretty cute too. I'm sure Bronte and Haydan will love this. Bronte one time told me that she was going to marry Joe Jonas when she was older. Fancy.

Hello?

Where did everyone go? I NEED more comments. They make me very happy. Maybe I'll just have to find new ways to impress you guys, because clearly what I'm doing now isn't working. I 'know' people read my blog, but for whatever reason they're not commenting. Whatever. Please comment, just because I like you to.

Thank you.

I LOVE California.

It's probably pretty obvious by now that I have a love of California. In fact I love Cali so much that I was going to name my first born daughter after the "Golden State". (This was banned by my Life Coach, so now I think I shall name my first son Cal.) There is just something about CA that is so wonderful. The weather, the atmosphere, the people (particularly X-tina) are the best. I WILL live in Cali when I am older, and I won't compromise. When people ask me where I am from, I 'always' say California. My birth certificate clearly states that I am from CA, and no matter what anyone says, I AM NOT FROM UTAH!!!! Plus, I spent nearly the first 2 years of my life in Cali, and if you add up all the time I have been there for vacation, I am practically a resident. So, whatever.

Whenever I see these commercials, it makes me REALLY sad that I do not currently live in Cali. Like, to the point where I almost cry, for real. But, since I am not there all of the time, I watch these videos to remind myself, that one day I will return to this wonderful state permanently. (P.S. Luckily, I'll be there in less than a week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Election '08.


I've pretty much been glued to CNN lately. There is so much going on, and I love all of the drama and arguing. I especially enjoy reading about all of the contention reguarding Proposition 8 in California. I find it particularly amusing that there are so many college students in UTAH that are in such an uproar about it. Honestly, calm down. Most have taken their debate to Facebook. I find this rather annoying, but some of their arguments are hilarious to read.


Anyway, I'm going to keep my opinions to myself. It's my blog and I can say what I want to say, but I don't feel like getting into commenting wars with people.


Whatever your choice, I just hope that you'll get out and vote.

Welcome back.


Thank goodness that it's not summer time anymore.  I really was getting sick and tired of not having a Jazz game to look forward to every night.  Never to fear, my boys are back.  Yes, it may be pre-season, but I don't care.  There is nothing better than getting to watch my fav team play.  From what I can tell, they look good, and the new additions over the summer seem to be fitting in.  While watching the games, I chat about it here, mostly because no one in my house cares as much about it as I do.  My dad always watches the games with me, but he doesn't like to watch the post-show interviews, which is unfortunate because KK usually gets interviewed, and sometimes he's shirtless.  Luxury.

Speaking of KK, he seems to be on his A-game this year.  Which is good, because sometimes he doesn't, and it gets very frustrating for me to watch.  

All of you are more than welcome to come to my house and watch a game with me.  I tend to have some very colorful commentary.

Dallas=Danger, Whittier=Safety.

I'm officially calling out my life coach and my future-presidential cousin.  Please update your blogs.  Those of us who are not in Cali at the moment need to be updated on the goings-ons.  Regretably, some of us have to work and stuff and so we cannot just come over to dinner every night and hang out.  I would like a complete report by tomorrow.

Thank you.

Happy Birthday Camille LaVona.

I can't believe that my little Camilley is 15.  Of coarse, I always take it for granted that Camille is so young, because we pretty much do everything together.  I think we are twins seperated by 7 years.  Like me, Camille enjoys the finer things in life, and that always makes her a great shopping buddy.  Even when Camille was little, if anyone was going somewhere, she'd say "I'na go."  To this day Camille loves to go anywhere and everywhere.  Camille also has the sweetest, kindest spirit.  She is always so sweet and gentle, especially with babies.  My goal is to get Camille to go to dental school too one day so that we can be partners!  

I spent over a half an hour going through pictures trying to find the perfect one to put on this post.  But, since Camille is so beautiful it was really hard.  I finally 'setteled' on this one, because it was from one of her ANTM photo shoots.  Haha.  Don't we all wish that we could have been this gorgeous when we were going through those 'awkward' teenage years.  As stunning as Camilley is on the outside, she is even more amazing on the inside.

The only 'bad' thing about Camille is that she steals lip gloss.  But, she's so cute so I always end up buying her more of her own anyway.  Whatever.

I love you, Camilley.

Zarizonia.


So, Arizona ("Zarizonia") was very luxury.  I think that my interview went really well, but I won't know if I'm in or not until December.  December 1st is the first day that any school can start sending out acceptance letters.  So, keep your fingers crossed for me.  The school is actually in Glendale, which I thought was a very nice area.  It was all relatively new and super clean.  Plus, they have every single store you could ever think you would need to go to.  

This is the campus.  They have a fence around the whole thing, and there is only one gated entrance with a security guard.  Needless to say, my dad would be very happy about my safety, and my luxury vehicle would not be in harm's way.
This is the actual dental school building.  The sim-lab is state of the art.  I wish that I could have told them just to go ahead and charge the first years tuition to my card and let me start being a dentist that day!

This is my luxury outfit.  It's cuter in person.  And, I kinda look like a gomer, but hey, it was way early in the a.m.
On the way to and from Zarizonia, we flew over the Grand Canyon.  It was highly luxury.




And then we flew into a storm and I got these cool pics of the clouds.  I hope it is ok to take pics inside an airplane!






The view may be the ONLY thing I like about Utah Valley.  hahahah.
Overall, I think I'd love to go to school in Arizona.  Plus, it is a great vaca spot &  it's only a couple hours in the car from Whittier.
