Lately I have found myself in a bit of a slump. Not just about my blogging, which seems to have been reduced to updates about my dad and whining about the weather, but just in general. I HATE when I get this way and I get mad at myself when I do.
My cute niece, Lee, who lives in Maryland, has an awesome blog (I'd share the address, but it's a private blog). Anyway, she makes me laugh just about every time I read one of her posts...but sometimes she vents and goes off on a rant...she makes me feel better. But the one thing she mentioned in one of her posts, is that when she is in a slump or discouraged or feeling down, she tries to list events that she has coming up. This gives her something to look forward to and lifts her spirits. So I'm giving it a shot!
Paul McCartney is coming to SLC for the VERY first time EVER and we got tickets. He will be here July 13th. We saw him last year in Las Vegas and he puts on an AMAZING concert. He played over 2 hours, his band is fab and he delivered. PLUS, some friends of ours from California are coming up for the concert and we'll be getting together for dinner beforehand...can't wait!!
My husband and I are attending one of his family reunions. It will be held in September down in Hurricane, UT (don't say *Hurricane*...it's pronounced *Hurra-Cun*...this South Florida girl was corrected pretty quickly!!) Anyway, it's so much fun and while we are down there, some of his cousins and my daughter, Aja, are taking a side trip to Las Vegas (just 2 hours away) to see "Beatles LOVE" at the Mirage...again!!
Swiss Days is coming up, also in September (Labor Day weekend). We are on the committee and have already started our meetings. This is a HUGE event in our tiny town, but SO MUCH FUN.
My cute niece (who I mentioned above) and her family are coming to Utah for their own family reunion in July and I will get to see them and smooch on her yummy, adorable boys.
I'm doing a commercial on July 8th for "America First Credit Union" with my little pooch, Layla. It will only be shown locally, but yesterday we did a photo shoot for the stills that will be used in the commercial and Layla was a S.T.A.R...she totally out-shined me! The photographer and crew members were SO nice and it only took about 20 minutes to get all of the shots...easy $$ !!
So there you have it...a few things that I have to look forward too...YES, I feel better! I can't guarantee that I will be blogging everyday (I'm just not feeling it). So a HUGE *Thank You* to Lee! Thank you for setting the example.
**BTW, I can't post without an update on my dad...he is home and doing much better. He is THE toughest guy I have ever known and I have learned to just enjoy each and every moment I have with him. God bless my dad!
I am a woman who loves her life! I have been blessed with the most wonderful husband on the planet. He is a man of integrity and honor who truly inspires me to be a better woman. My 4 children and 6 grandchildren (whom I affectionately call my *Littles*) are the light of my life. I am always looking for new and innovative ways to create value in the lives of others. My God, Family and Country are the most important things in my life...Oh, and I love the Beatles!
