Say YES! to hoboken. Rockstar diaries. Steoffrey language. We thought it would be fun for Ivy to have a video made of her stay in the hospital to watch when she was older.

I was most excited to catch all her many visitors on camera so she could know how many people loved her and wanted to come snuggle her. Her nursery stay made that difficult, so we got as many as we could once we got home. Thank you to all the friends and family who came to see Ivy. We were spoiled with flowers, meals, cookies, books and magazines, but we mostly appreciated everyones company while we eagerly waited for her to get out of the nursery.

Geoff did an unforgettable happy dance (think slick hospital floors, "just washed" jeans, and slippery shoes) once we heard the news we could take her home with us. Nienie. (My little cherub with angel wings) I had such a wonderful time at the Sweet Tooth Fairy meeting you!


Thank you so much for buying my 2011 calendar. I was honored to see people enjoying it and wanting to display it in their homes.This is the letter I wrote inside the calendars, and I wanted to share it with you this wonderful Sunday before Christmas: Hi Everyone! Thank you so much for having my wall calendar in your home. I have decided to create and dedicate this calendar to all those who have experienced tragedy or loss of hope in life; for anyone who may feel loneliness or sadness. I want you to know, these experiences can also be a blessing in disguise. My life is filled with happiness and peace, and this calendar reminds me of that.

Seriously, So Wise. At A Glance The anonymous creator, brains and author behind Tiffany/Amber/Megan/Nicole shares why she started Seriously, So Blessed, the highly popular Mormon mommy blog spoof.

Seriously, So Wise

She speaks candidly about how she responds to Mormon culture as an author and as a member, and why humor is such a powerful tool for helping us look at ourselves in an honest light. September 2010 What was your motivation to start “Seriously, so Blessed!”? I started the blog on a bit of a whim, just as a joke with a few specific friends in mind who I knew would enjoy it. Where do you find your inspiration for posts? Inspiration is all over the place.

Of course I don’t think all Mormon women are like TAMN. Is there a tendency for LDS women to hold themselves to an impossibly high standard or feel pressure to conform? In any highly homogeneous culture we all feel pressure to be and look and think and act a certain way. Are there any topic or issues you won’t poke fun at? The Brass Petal. I can't believe I won. I mean, i can, but i can't. What a secret to keep, and i'm a bad self-secret keeper. I can keep others, sure. But i have no secrets of my own because, i'm the most transparent person in the world. and i like to talk. a lot. obviously. So keeping this GOOD of a secret was sooooooooooo hard you have no idea. AND BOY am I so excited about that i could wee in my little vintage house dress. And I love how Ian's house turned out and kinda don't understand why its not mine. But back to Design Star. I remember waking up that morning and thinking, 'ok so today is the day that i get told by the Design Star judges whether I will get my own TV series.

When Vern announced it, I was shocked. But I won, folks. Of course I knew it was a possibility or I never would have auditioned and left a job (in the middle of a shoot, btdubs) and gave up weeks of work, risked humiliation, etc etc. Seriously, so blessed! You guys, I do NOT say this lightly but am seriously ready to swear and cry and just take off my boots in dispair!

Seriously, so blessed!
