And we're back!

Sorry for the delay in picture posting. Let's blame it on technical difficulties rather than my laziness, OK?
Disneyland was amazing. Perfect weather, no crowds and the best company! Seriously, how cute are my nieces?

10 loves


Green turn arrows. I don't know why, but they bring me such joy.
2. Planning a dream vacation, currently it's a Western Caribbean cruise in May. Or maybe a New England/Canada cruise in September.
3. This week, I have tomorrow off work (yay MLK day!) and Friday (yay Disneyland travel article!)
4. Being married to Jason. He's my favorite.
5. Disneyland. I'm going in t-minus 4 days!!
6. Iron Chef America. Kat Cora's my favorite.
7. Playing games with Jason, Mark and Careen. Also, winning. Which I didn't, but I still love it.
8. Wedding dress shopping with my old roomies. Minus when there are mean sales ladies.
9. That Jason's finally getting over his illness, thanks to a team of Dr. Stacy, lots of rest and antibiotics!
10. My 9-year-olds in primary and the thing they say. For example, we were talking about Nephi obtaining the brass plates from Laban. Tyler suggested Nephi offer Laban a Nintendo DS because no one could resist one of those.

Last chance ...

If you were unable to make it to the Pampered Chef party last night, or you did come and didn't order anything but still want to, the show doesn't officially close until Monday. So! Take a look at the online catalog and e-mail me at jessiealexis at gmail dot com if you are interested in purchasing anything!

10 loves


(consider this a "sometime during the weekend" list, instead of a Friday thing.)

1. Watching Food Network with my husband.
2. Thermometers. Jason and I have had so much fun taking each others temperature over and over this weekend.
3. Real estate listings on Craigslist. Every week I find a new house I want. This is my current one.
4. Cooking, baking and reading cook books.
5. Shopping with Jason. Not only does he have great taste, but he doesn't even complain when asked to come along.
6. Singing time during primary. I love primary songs.
7. Watching "Yes Dear" during my lunch breaks.
8. Gift cards. It's the gift that gives twice. First you're excited when you get it, then you get all excited again when you spend it.
9. Reading books. I just finished "Vinegar Hill." It was ... interesting.
10. Spending time visiting with friends. True friends are the greatest!!

Pampered Chef Party

I'm hosting a Pampered Chef party at my mom's house next Thursday. It's going to be a lot of fun, and super helpful too. We'll be doing the "Real Food, Real Fast" cooking show and learn how to make dinner in under 30 min. There is absolutely no obligation to buy anything, just come and eat and enjoy everyone's company!

When: Thursday, January 17 @ 7:00
Where: My parents house, 1132 N 1450 E Orem, UT

Leave a comment and let me know if you'll be able to make it. I hope to see you all there!

Our Coffee Table

Here it is! The newest addition to our home. We purchased this at Down East Home for a fraction of the retail price. It's originally from Z Gallarie. This beauty is not only a treat for the eyes, but practical too. I opens up and provides a perfect place for storing blankets and games.

10 loves


1. Planning my Disneyland trip for January 25. All are invited.
2. The new Utah Valley Magazine (see previous post)
3. My new coffee table!! (pictures coming soon!) It's the first piece of furniture Jason and I have purchased together, and we are quite proud.
4. When my husband does thoughtful things like bringing me home chocolates from his office.
5. My new Sevens I bought on sale, more than 50 percent off!
6. The warm front that settled on the valley. It was 50 degrees when I left work at five.
7. When hard to please clients call in and tell me how pleased they are with my work.
8. Knowing I get to spend all weekend doing whatever I want.
9. Laughing at the 4 am conversation I had with Jason in my sleep last night -- apparently I kept telling him it was time for prayers.
10. Friends and family!

The first UV mag of 2008

The new Utah Valley Magazine is set to hit shelves soon, so everyone go out and grab a copy!! I'm so excited about this issue. It's our health and wellness issue and it's chock full of debunked health myths, real-life cancer survivors and profiles on the top doctors in Utah County. And to top it all off, our cover man just happens to be best friends with James Bond. True story, you can read all about it when you pick up your very own copy.

We also just launched our redesigned Web site, and it's beautiful. So please check it out, enter the contest and take the poll. I promise you won't regret it.

I resolve...

1. To go to Disneyland more often.
2. To take more pictures.
3. To spend more time with my husband.

I believe in setting reachable goals.

Now your turn, what are a few of your 2008 resolutions?
