Corner View: White

White is one of my favorite things...it means snow, wedding dresses, clouds, milk, vanilla ice cream, baby onesies. White is good.

It also means:
my {usually} trusty Mac
wonderful ocean foam
and, from our adventure last weekend...a sky so bright it is white against the beautiful red rock and green grass. Favorite things.
Thanks for playing! Please visit the lovely Jane from Spain Daily for more "white" experiences.

Out My Car Window...

We didn't go anywhere too much fun this week, so out my car window is on my drive to work.

Happy sunrise. I am so excited for fall!
Pretty Mountains...behind the ugly cement wall.

And my favorite part of my drive...The domed white building in the center is the Utah State Capitol. I love it.
Happy Wednesday. So glad that Corner View is back! It's so good to "see" you all.

Where Has the Time Gone?

random firework pic from this summer. just because I like fireworks.

I am trying to be back--trying to lose my major writer's block.

We opened a new office, so I have been traveling for work. It was a new and interesting experience now that I have a child, and I have to say, it is not nearly as enjoyable. I used to really like traveling for my job, but I find that now I prefer to stay home. And I'm okay with that. Luckily work understands, and only sent me for a fraction of the time. I greatly appreciated that. I did enjoy the work though. And I was ok with that too. I think I am making progress!

I have found myself catching up on blogs today. I feel like I haven't visited with good friends in forever! It is good to see what the blogging world is up to, and be able to feel like I am again "in the know." Now that life isn't so busy, I am trying to get organized again!

And a few random thoughts:
*What happened to good actors/actresses in movies? Actresses like Megan Fox that are basically talentless leave me not wanting to see movies. (I have to admit I am really enjoying Bradley Cooper and Zooey Deschanel lately.) (Oh, and I wish I had Zooey Deschanel's hair. That's all.) Does anyone have any good movie suggestions?

*I do love going to the movies-I love the whole experience. I love the big diet cokes, the candy, the previews and the loudness and enthusiasm of it all. I think I need to go see something really great, and soon.

*I am so, so very glad that it is September. Football Air is finally here--chilly at night and in the morning, but still warm during the day. I love football, and I love football air. I am ready for fall. I love wearing sweaters, and the Squeeze has darling fall clothes she is ready to debut. And did I mention that I love football? Preferably the college variety. And the World Series. I love October for the World Series. That developed after I was married. However, I have always been a Yankees fan. It is a point of contention at our house, as Pierre is a die-hard Red Sox fan.

*I am so, so tired lately. I know it is because I have to get up so, so early, but I can't make myself go to bed at night. Thus the rambling blog of this evening. I need to get my schedule back. It's messing everyone in my house up!

All right, I'm heading to bed now...hopefully to sleep.
I hope you have a fantastic weekend. We have lots planned that I am excited to do, and plans to see lots of my favorite people. I hope you are doing something great too!

Too Early?

Doesn't this look heavenly?
I'm kind of wishing I had a vacation planned...

I managed to pull myself out of bed at 5:00 this morning, the Squeeze out by 5:20, dropped at the sitter's by 5:45 and doing circuit training by 6:00.

I feel good about that.

I am trying. Hard.

Tonight I am tired, but I am still sure it was worth it. I hope. Seeing some results would help me be more sure about the whole thing.

The circuit training class is actually really good. The instructor is excellent, and the time went by really quickly this morning. I am grateful for that. I have had way more energy since starting this program, but not today.

Today I am tired, and so after work, I picked up the Squeeze, we played and now that she is sleeping, I am vegging.

And that's ok. Tonight I am doing nothing and I am perfectly ok with that.

I hope you have a great night too!

In My Mind...

In my mind I have so, so much going on.
For some reason, I can't seem to get it all into words. I'm sorry for the lack of posts. Something just isn't clicking lately.
This blog has served as my creative outlet, but I'm not feeling very creative, witty or passionate as of late. I am feeling like a bit of a slacker, however.
I find myself wishing I could figure out all of these thoughts and articulate my wants, needs and frustrations. Instead, I find them all swimming around in my head, bumping into each other and pushing each other around. Nothing is getting solved that way.
I'm feeling a little bit boring and frustrated. I know the inspiration will come--I know this funk will pass. For now, I am trying to be patient and figure it all out.

Do you have any suggestions?

A Little Too Much...

So this video is a little much for me. A servant to Barack Obama, our President? Really? There are multiple things in the video that I agree with--I think we can all find a goal to help others out and better our country in some way. That is a great thing! However, I do pledge allegiance to my country, not the president. Even more disturbing? This has been shown in schools in Utah. Sorry Oprah and Harpo Productions--you lost me with this one.
