Now that the tree is up, it makes the rest of the decorations we have up fit in better. Until tonight, these lights were all we had.

It was beautiful! There were quite a few people out enjoying the snow.
The trees were absolutely amazing.

Frankie is still in the auto body shop. It took 2 weeks for the insurance adjuster to look at her, and then he left about half of the repairs off! He told me he had approved all the repairs, and that he had left a check at the repair shop, and all I had to do was sign it when I picked Frankie up. Well, then the awesome repair shop called me, and said that they noticed he didn't really approve ALL the repairs. So, they filed for a re-inspesction. Thankfully, that happened the very next day, and this time, they did include everything. Now we are just waiting for the parts to come in, and then I will get her back. That means I won't be driving my own little car until the middle of december. Aaaagh! a total of 6 weeks in this rental car.
On the headache front, still have a headache. Surprise, Surprise. I have been working with my dr's doing all sorts of not fun tests...CT Scan, MRI, a ton of blood work, several different meds, and finally a spinal tap (well, 2 of those). The current result is that I don't have any tumors, brain bleeds, serious infections, or any other major disease. As my neurologist put it...it's just a headache, albeit a bad one. But now we can treat it as such, without worrying that we are missing something big.
So that is me now. Not much fun, but it is my life.

Fun, huh? I know, it doesn't look like my natural color, but that was the point. It isn't a ton, but enough to make me happy. And it is SO much better than a purple or other color. Anyhoo, a little way to add spunk!

and to the Mount Timpanogas Temple.
I made plans to attend the Salt Lake temple with some dear friends of mine, but those plans were thwarted, first with double-booking, and then with the temple being closed for cleaning. So, we ended up at the Bountiful temple, again. I attempted to also attend the Provo Temple (did not have enough time) and the Jordan River Temple (it too was closed.) But, that is ok, I loved where I did get to go.
I spent time with my amazing niece and nephew...
and I played with friends...
All in all, it was wonderful. I got to "spend the day in the life of a senior missionary couple," tour downtown Salt Lake at midnight, attend the Arts Festival, see a true hippie dancer in Utah, go to Seven Peaks Water Park, have dinner with friends, drive a nicer car than I currently own, and luv, luv, luv those babies.
And now, back to real life...

So, while I am playing, here is something for you to enjoy. This is just a clip, but here is the Oregon Chorale.

Still no keys, I will be having my locks changed this week.
Happy Fathers Day to my dad! My dad is, without a doubt, the most amazing dad ever! (Sorry, your dad will never be cooler than mine!) He is such an example of perserverance, love and patience.

In my 25 years I have:
* been a nanny
* worked for Walt Disney World
* been a first responder, CNA, EMT-Basic and dispatcher
* lived in somewhere over 15 different houses
* become an auntie
* lived on my own, with roommates, and with family (and those I count as family)
* made friends
* kept most of those friends
* learned how amazingly cool my parents actually are
* and much more
Most importantly, however, it is not what I have done that makes me who I am. No matter what, I am a daughter of God. I have a loving Father in Heaven who knows me... really knows me. Better than I know myself. awesome.
Anyhoo, as far as my actual birthday went, I spent the day at work (I know, not so fun) then ran over the tech rehearsal for the chorale. Our concert is coming up next weekend, so we sang for 3 1/2 hours! And let me tell you, it is fun to have a choir sing Happy Birthday! I got a grill from my folks (yep, I get to learn how to grill) and all the accoutrement's needed.
So, chalk it up to another year!
