So today as rehearsal was AMAZING.

I mean....I am starting to like them more as days go on. Mostly thanks to my council girls, but today was amazing.


Because I heard the best words ever uttered out of human lips.

"it seems you have lost quite a few inches since we measured you last"

Thank you dear sweet wardrobe mistress.

I will remember you when I win my Davis County Tony........they have those right?

Dear Anthropologie

Last week you bestowed upon me the most delicious denim skirt.

I ask that this week I will have the same luck with this beauty.

Love always, Jen

I am literally at my wits end.

I am certain that this is a test in sobriety and that is not a joke.

My plate is full.....

And here I am talking to the blog world about it because I feel alone.

Like, I can't do enough or I can't say the right thing or I can't just be weak.

And yet I go on.

Right, because that is what you do.

So Miss asked the question yesterday....

What's on your nightstand.

As you is not very glamorous.

It is a mess...I have no room for hair ties or chapstick...

Because at any given time I have at least 6 water bottles on my nightstand.

So here it is in all it's glory.

Don't judge me.

What's on your nightstand?

New Britney

We have had this convo before.

I am a music snob.

Except when it comes to trashy pop music.

I just bought the new Britney and I am loving it.

It takes me back to the good ole' days when she was under age and inappropriate.

Love her.

So yourself a favor and take a listen.

Then comment "Thank you really know what you are talking about when it comes to anything music"

Day Murray Music

So..I am singing in church on Sunday.

So I needed some sheet music.

So I looked online and found this store.

So we went.

So there was an RM music major who was hitting on all the girls showing them great acoustic guitar books that had greats like Sheryl Crow and Taylor Swift. Not to mention all the piano teachers there asking for discounts.

So I went to the section of the store I needed and found the divider that stated "Best Gospel Songs Ever". But it was empty.....

So now I will never know the best gospel songs ever.

So we made our way to the cash register while passing the overweight, drunk, loud, drum teacher who was trying to convince his meth head student to buy a book on hand exercises.

So I moved on and made my purchase, and as we gave the clerk our debit card he asked if we could pay in cash so they did not get charged the processing fee.

So we paid in cash and left.


The internet was invented for a reason.

Peace out.

One Year

One year ago today:

I married the greatest man ever
I stood in 6 inch Louboutin heels for hours
I saw my bestie cry for like the first time ever
I was up at 3:00 AM
I cried and cried and cried some more (happy tears)
I ate room service

That my friends is all I remember.

It was a haze.

Miss remembers here for deets.

How are we celebrating?

Play practice
Finishing up my lesson
Ruth's Chris (Thank you Dad and Lori)

We don't need much. Just each other.

Chick Flicks

So I was asked why I do not like chick flicks.

I hesitate to answer this fears it will offend. 

But know that we all have our opinions and love me anyway.

I think the main thing is that I am cynical. I know life does not go the way it does in chick flicks or Jane Austen novels.

Not to mention MOST chick flicks have TERRIBLE acting, TERRIBLE directing, and TERRIBLE story lines.

I am not against love long as they are done well.

And I have TRIED to like them. Seriously...I tried. And there are some I like.

For example:

Love Actually
The Proposal
Anything by John Hughes
Mean Girls

But for the most part I would rather watch something blow up, something that scares the crap out of me, or Natalie Portman pulling feathers out of her back.

So count me out of Twilight or the 6 hour Pride and Prejudice.

I'm good.

Looky Looky

What I received in the mail today.

Miss got me a subscription for Christmas.

I am THRILLED...oh how I love this magazine. It has so many great ideas that I swear I will one day use.

Until then....they look great on my coffee table, it makes me look all creative and hip.

My New Go To

See this little number?

This is my new go to.

See this little shop?

It is as well.

Miss introduced me....and for that, I bought her the poppy for Christmas.

I covet everything on this site.

So count on this being the first of many EmersonMade posts.

And count on me yelling "yes horse!" every time I wear this t-shirt.

A Little Slice of Heaven

Merry, Merry....

Christmas from Santa.

And what better way to try it out than with cupcakes.

(While wearing the boots I got as well )

Monday, January 10, 2011


Our ward changed from 9:00 to 11:00 at the new year.

I thought for sure I could make it on time this's 11:00.

But at 10:42 I was not yet dressed.

You would think that we could still get there at 11:00 considering we are literally 10 seconds away from our building.

As I started to construct my outfit I realized something.

7 outfit was 7 layers.

at 10:59 I was finally dressed looking frantically for Morange.

I am frustrated and getting snippy and complaining that I always have so many damned layers on on Sunday.

So at 11:10 we walked into church.



But necessary.

How Does Sugar Smell?

Last year Miss got me hooked on perfumes.

And now I am obsessed.

For Christmas my sweet husband bought me this new perfume.


Seriously, I smell really good.

Find it here...and do yourself a favor.

Buy it.

True Blood

So while on vacation I got hooked on this damned show (I mean darn show...watching my language).

I am a sucker for pun intended.

I like all things vampire EXCEPT sparkle skin and mellow dramatic love stories.


This show would be SOOOO much better without it's main characters.

Seriously...I cannot stand Sookie Stackhouse and Bill Compton.

This should not be a surprise because I hate sappy shiz. But this goes sooooo beyond.

Three points:

Sookie is TERRIBLE. I mean just awful. The worst kind of girl. 
I cannot stand how Bill says her name "sookea".
Anna Paquin needs an orthodontist....and an acting coach

I dream of the day this show exists without them....I literally fast forward their parts so for me it kind of does.

Some come on HBO do me a solid...kill Bill and Sookie.

Then maybe I will buy your damned channel instead of illegally downloading the episodes.....I mean dang channel
