My Celeb Look-Alikes

What do Nicole Kidman, Candace Cameron, Lauren Graham, Kate Bosworth, and Evangeline Lilly have in common? Apparently, they all look like ME!!

This was a fun website. And, I think, somewhat true. I have had several people tell me throughout my life that I look like Candace Cameron (I think they were referring to her awkward early years on "Full House," but oh well).

I Kid You Not

Yesterday I went to Seagull Book and Tape to buy a new journal. I wanted a nice, religious journal to write thoughts and ideas I had during scripture study, temple attendance, etc. I found a beautiful red journal with beige, leather binding. On the cover it read, "My Work and My Glory." I flipped through the journal and noticed that it had scriptures and quotes scattered throughout the journal. I didn't take a real close look, but it looked perfect so I bought it. When I got home I took a closer look. The more I looked, the more I loved it. It contained some of my favorite scriptures from the Bible and the Book of Mormon. It also contained great quotes. Not all of the quotes were from LDS people, but they were inspiring quotes by notable, historical people. Some of these people included Thomas Paine, C.S. Lewis, Ann Frank, and Gandhi.

This is where the "I Kid You Not" part comes in. Now, I'll be the first to admit, I'm not a Harry Potter Fan, nor do I know much about the series. However, as I was reading these inspiring scriptures and quotes, I read a quote and noticed that it was attributed to Albus Dumbledore. I thought, "What?" Isn't that a fictional character from Harry Potter. I asked Lesli, a fanatical Harry Potter fan, and she confirmed it. I couldn't believe it. This journal was filled with the Word of God, words from important historical figures, and a fictional wizard. Ridiculous. Ridiculously funny, that is.

A New Bike

I've been thinking of getting a new bike for the past month, but I didn't know what kind of bike to buy. When I asked my mom for advice, she told me my Aunt Jeanine had a really nice bike and I should ask her what kind it was. Because Jeanine is pregnant I thought she might let me borrow this nice bike of hers until she has her baby in August. When I asked her if I could borrow it, she said I could have it!! Yes!! Here are a few pictures of me with my new bike.

The Holiday

Over Christmas Break, Katrina, Lesli, and I saw the movie, The Holiday, twice in the theatres. We loved it so much that we threw a little party last Tuesday when it was released on DVD. And when I say party, I mean we ate dinner and watched it.

I check my StatCounter and I have several different people reading my blog, but they never make comments. Now you can. If you do, please leave your name so I'm not dying of curiosity to know who you are.

Have You Done Any Good in the World Today? Yes, I Have.

I don't have a camera, but luckily, Lesli does. She has been taking pictures of our adventures over the past couple weeks. We have had tons of fun. Some people have said our house is fun central. And when I say some people, I mean Lesli and me (and honorary roommate - you know who you are). Here are pictures of us doing a service project - we were coloring alphabet books that will be sent to third world countries. Why is it necessary for these books to be in English, we have no idea (especially when they're going to Latin America).

Yes!! I Win!!

For the past few weeks, Lesli and I have been competing with each other in a Cribbage Tournament. The player who reached seven wins first, won the tournament. Tonight I won. That's right, me. The Novice. Lesli wasn't too happy about it. I think I might have turned her off the game. She is a fierce competitor. In fact, she had never lost a tournament - that is until now.

Lesli also included a post about cribbage on her blog. To check it out, click HERE.

The Ultimate Gift

This weekend I saw the movie, The Ultimate Gift. The movie had a few slow parts and some odd twists and turns, but ultimately, I loved it!! With so many smutty, meaningless movies out there, it was nice to see a decent movie with heart and a good message. If you're looking for something to see, I highly recommend it.
