Pretty quiet around here ...

With Sierra gone for so long, it's not only quieter, but a little lonely too ... Can't wait to get her home.

Last night Bryan made Stuffed halibut ...YUM. We've divided up nights for cooking, and much to my delight, Bryan took 2 nights (if only he'd take my two nights too!).

Azure looked so cute coming home from church today that I jut had to snap a photo.

Other news this week: I'm definitely getting acclimated to my job. And the kids and I got some good school shopping in. They're all set look great and take notes!

It was a busy week which included traveling for work, 2 weddings and the blessing of little Cali. And because a picture is worth a thousand words, I'll let this picture do the speaking:

I'm Back!

It's about time I update, dontcha think?
In the 6 weeks I've been AWOL lots has happened.
I am now an employed woman. I am the Marketing Director for ASL Communication. It is the perfect job for me, as it allows me to work a whole lot from home, or from whatever location I may be at, and it actually requires that I travel regularly to Utah (oh darn! I'll have to stay with my family there!) When I'm not researching and setting things up from home, I'm visiting with clients and potential clients, taking gifts to them, buying them lunch, and basically schmoozing. LOVE IT! (Plus, this job has motivated me to learn ASL. Thankfully my parents are signers and this past 10 days I've been tutored by my mom!)
I've also spent some time with a lot of my extended family this past little while. I've been with kids and grandkids, inlaws, and with my parents in Texas. It's been a blissful month and a half.
Meanwhile, my motivational blog, Silver Strands, is really thriving. I feel like Silver Strands is the raft that is taking me on my divine current.
Today Bryan completed his Duty to God and even had his Bishop's interview. Our 17-year-old is a motivated young man who makes us very proud.
A big thanks to my Mother-in-law who has motivated me to get back to the family blog. I've committed to her that this will be updated at least every Sunday.
