My mom got me these two cute ornaments last year. Cupcakes, pink, sparkles. What's not to love?
When I grow up and have a house of my own, I will get this tree. Also, I will decorate the outside of my house in pink and green lights. (I don't really care if the gentleman I live with doesn't approve of the color scheme, he can go decorate his own house if he wants to.)

I just love you. I mean come on, that voice, those eyes, you just
drive a girl crazy.
I admit that at first I was a little skeptical about your new song
'Haven't met you yet' but after having listened to it numerous times I
think it's adorable. My favorite line:
'I might have to wait, I'll never give up I guess it's half timing and
the other half's luck. Wherever you are, whenever it's right you'll
come out of nowhere and into my life.'
(Honestly, SO cute)
I'm sorry that I ever said I didn't like your new cd. I really do like
it now. Thanks for being such a musical genius.

And, I love this cereal. But, I don't eat it in a bowl with milk. I'll put some in a plastic baggy and munch on it on my way to work in the morning. (Just like a 2 year old. Nice.)

Regarding body changes, she said there were many, occurring every day.....like her breasts. They seem to be in a race to see which will reach her waist, first. The audience laughed so hard they cried. She is such a simple and honest woman, with so much wisdom in her words!
Maya Angelou said this:
'I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.'
'I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life.'
'I've learned that making a 'living' is not the same thing as 'making a life.'
'I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.'
'I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw some things back...'
'I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.'
'I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one.'
'I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.'
'I've learned that I still have a lot to learn..'
'I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.'

Anything with pink and sprinkles makes me totally happy.
These two HTM's refused to help me with any of the baking process, but they made sure they were around when it came time to eat fancy cookies. They're special.

So, I was on my way to work this morning. Since the weather was nice I've been driving the Porsche this week (because hey, why not?). I hadn't even gone 3 miles on the freeway when I start to hear this thud-thud sound and then the car feels like it is on a bumpy country road. So, then I get over into the slow lane and I'm thinking that I can make it to the next exit, but then I look in my rear view mirror and I all I see is smoke. UGH. So I pull over to the shoulder, don't even bother getting out to inspect and immediately call AAA to send help (SOS!!). Then I call my dad and tell him to come pick me up. I waited there for a while, my dad came and then soon after the tow-truck man came and hoisted the Porsche onto his truck bed. It was all pretty exciting and quite frustrating at the same time.
-I didn't even cry once. Good on me.
-If you don't have AAA, you need to call them immediately and sign up. It's only like $50 a year, and they will either come and change your tire or tow you to a repair shop. Luxury.
-Apparently this is what I get for 'showing off' the day before. Whatever.

So, I was being nice and helping to hand out candy on Halloween. I had been doing this for about an hour when this older creepy guy (with his grandkids) tells me I have nice boots (like, duh, what other kind would I have) and then says 'I have a treat for you'. (Don't worry, he didn't flash me or anything.) He hands me this yellow piece of paper with some candy attached to it.
I just shut the door and walked into the kitchen (threw the candy away) and read the note. You can read it too:
"I SERVE those that are looking for innovative ideas to bring YOUR family back to the table, spending more quality time together, increasing your income. I can help with any of these and MORE. Thank you, please give me a call, email or visit my website...I hope someone is PAMPERING you today, because I would LOVE to!"
And then it has her name and contact info.
OK, first of all, who helped her write this? Seriously, like it doesn't even make sense.
I was 'so' upset that someone was soliciting on Halloween. Apparently they missed the GIANT 'NO SOLICITING' sign that I made and put on the front door (another post in itself).
So, being that I am Dani-lee and I don't let things like this go without inserting my 2 cents, I emailed the lady. My email:
We received a note from you tonight regarding your business aspirations. It is very embarassing that you would be soliciting yourself on a night that is designed for children to have fun. We would hope that you would take this into consideration and never solicite on a holiday again.
I have not heard back from Cheryl. (Unfortunately, because we all know I love a good confrontation.)
*I really wish that I was making this all up, but I'm not.

the show is incredibly entertaining.
I especially love Mr. Schuester (aka Matthew Morrison). He's adorable
and I love the way that he dresses on the show. Oh, and he's coming
out with an album that he describes as a cross between Justin
Timberlake & Michael Bublé. What could be better?

#3: What is better Gossip Girls or Real Housewives? I only really like the New Jersey Housewives. I love me some Nate Archibald though.
#4: Who was ur first crush? Tough. Like real life or celebrity? Real life: probably Z.E. or P.J. in high school (and no I will not type out the names). Celebrity: Justin Timberlake
#5: If you could be anyone from any Disney movie who would you be? I assume you mean cartoon movie. I'd want to be the Little Mermaid mainly because I wish I could wear a purple bikini top everyday.
#6: If you could work on any Disneyland Attraction what would it be and why? The horse-drawn carriage in the front, so that I could pretend I was wish Ginger all day long. HAHAHA.
2. What is the favorite thing about your job? Transforming people's smiles. Seriously, it's amazing some of the things we do.
3. What destination do you want to visit, but haven't yet? Paris.
4. Current fav outfit? (Pictures please!) My wardrobe is currently in a bit of a funk. I feel like I wear the same thing everyday (wait, I do). When I'm not wearing scrubs I try to be cute, but lately I've really been struggling. I'll work on this and post a pic soon.
5. Fav holiday and why? Maybe include a fav memory or two. This might seem weird but I'm at a stage in life where I'm not really into holidays (bad, I know). But, I still love Christmas. I love how my mom gets the house decorated all fancy and mainly I love listening to my Donny Osmond Christmas cd. Haha.
6. What is the best thing that you cook or bake? Um, I make a really good German Chocolate cake. Luckily Betty Crocker helps me out!
7. How many handbags do you really own? Personally, I have 10 D&B's (no other brands).
2. soup or salad? Soup- Rumbi's, Salad- Cafe Rio
3. cookies or milk? Is this a trick question?
4. slooshies or diet coke? Both please.
5. me or Jenn Jenn? No comment.
2. Do you have a favorite DB purse? Probably my pink one in this post. I really love it, but I am so afraid that I am going to get it dirty and ruin it so I hardly ever use it. (Issues, I know!)
3. What finger do you like to wear rings on, and what is the ring size? If I'm up at The BYU I wear it on my ring finger on my left hand. Any other time I wear rings on my right hand ring finger. I have between a 5 1/2 to a 6 ring size. (I have small fingers, why can't my butt be that small?)
4. Favorite thing from Chili's? Chips & Salsa. Yum.
5. What day does the Basketball season start? ;) Today!!! (I'm watching while typing.)
6. How do you like your new room (since you've moved upstairs)? I really like it because it is pink. I very much do not like that I am sharing a bathroom with my teenage sisters.

So, I thought that I would open up my blog to let you ask me questions. Nothing is off limits (ok, maybe somethings) so you can pretty much ask everything you've ever wanted to know about yours truly. You can even ask the questions anonymously if you're afraid.
Shacklyn-you had better ask me a question, or else I'm over to you.

Also, I am over to my iPhone. It keeps turning off for no apparent
reason. Today I was having a very important conversation with my
cousin about 'New Moon' tickets and it turned off. Whatever to Apple.
Also, I have been forced to watch multiple episodes of 'The Hills'
today because I can't find the channel changer. I was thoroughly
disgusted. Even in my semi-contious state.
That is all for now. Wish me luck. (This is a really bad flu, but I'm
90% sure it isn't Swine flu. Yuck.)

Then, my lovely cousin, Jennifer, sent me a giftcard to Anthropologie as a thank you. (I really should have been the one thanking her for letting me hang out with her cute kids.) I was 'so' excited to go on a little shopping spree. So, after much careful looking on the website I decided to purchase this adorable 'fleur de lis' collection of dinnerware:
Rest assured that when the time comes for me do move out I'll do so in style.

Please come home soon. Here is a list of 5 reasons why:

My dad was going through some old boxes in the basement and found the hospital bill from when I was born. After insurance and everything I only cost my parents $175.50. He then told me that I was a very good investment. (Awesome.)
He also found a family group sheet (family tree). I found out that I have a distant great-grandmother named Thankful. How cool is that?

I'm trying to finish it before next weekend so that I can go see the movie. It's a good book, kind of hard to get into at first though (and there are some parts that are a little racy). But, overall I would recommend it.
So, please leave me your suggestions. Thanks.
You'll have to 'big' this pic up so you can see all of the wind thingies in the background. It was a little creepy to come up over a hill and see hundreds of them in the distance. For a second I thought there was an alien invasion going on. haha.
