My new favorite Toy

Look at it, it's beautiful! Now I don't have to walk all the way to the DVD player to hit play!

Sascha my darling

So I've decided that I'm going to come visit you in the near future. Ok honestly I don't know exactly when yet but I'm bringing a little friend with me. His name is Bobo. Ignore the fact that I just named him on the spot but Cassie gave him to me and I've been thinking about you and how much I miss you and Bobo reminded me of you. I would like Bobo to stay with you for awhile. Whenever I come to visit I will be dropping him off and leaving him in your care. Don't say no... I mean look at his face, can you say no to a face like that?

I miss you and will start planning my trip very soon! Love you

Why I hate moving

So I dediced to let you all in on a little Liz hall of shame.

This is why (mom and dad) I haven't yet moved. I start packing and then I start sorting and then I start watching Gilmore Girls (in the background) and then I start posting on my blog about why I'm not packed! It's a neverending circle.
I was born the Year of the RAT 1984. Let me tell you what that means... (from the wikipedia standpoint)
THE YEAR OF THE RAT - Being the first sign of the Chinese zodiac, rats are leaders, pioneers and conquerors. They are charming, passionate, charismatic, practical and hardworking. Rat people are endowed with great leadership skills and are the most highly organized, meticulous, and systematic of the twelve signs.

I'm sorry, did they say organized?!!! Lies, all lies

Oh well, maybe one day I will live up to the rat. Speaking of rodents, Hamster anyone? Ok I know that's getting old. Please forgive me for all my stuff. I think that part makes sense being the Rat year and all. Every time I get a little more brave and throw away things that last time I couldn't but sadly I also get new things I can't throw away yet. I better start reading FLY Lady
Thanks Sage! Anyway I hope you all still love me despite this obvious, shameful amount of crap.
To my Dear Mom and Dad and my future roomates and husband, I'm sorry!

Liz... An update

Ok so I haven't updated any of you for a long while.
What am I up to? Grandma Knell asks me this quite a lot and I love her for keeping tabs on me. So the newest thing is that I am moving in with my parents over the next two weeks. I hate packing so it's a very slow going process. But I'm excited because I have been going to my ward (The Holladay 30th ward) for about 6 months now up there and I can't wait to move closer and actually get to spend time with some of my new found friends up there. I have been working for my lovely cousin Sarah lately and helping her get out her orders. It's been really fun to see all the work she puts into her prints. Her kids are great and I also get to play with them a lot.
As most of you know I started out with 2 hamsters and now have 15! This isn't counting the batch of 6 I've already given away. They are fun little pets and keep me happy and not so lonely. I just finished helping out on a BYU film called "Best Wishes, Love Adele" that is written and Directed by my beautiful friend, Whitney Donald. I was the Key hairstylist and even some days took a turn as the Key Makeup artist. Those pictures you see up above are from one of the days of filming. We all were extras in the scene set in the 40s. I love to climb under giant plastic urns after a 13 hour day. Seriously though, working on a film is great fun. I even had a small role as a waitress in one of the scenes. I have met amazing people and I can't wait to do something like that again. I have been going to the gym and am excited to move to Salt Lake because I have found a gym by my parents that is even closer and is HUGE with my favorite feature... The Cardio Cinema room. Watching movies while you have to exercise is a great way to forget that you are moving your legs and it keeps you motivated.
I am excited because my stake is having a roadshow on March 1st (Happy Birthday Mica) and my parents ward is doing "It's a hard Knock Life" from "Annie" and my ward (the only singles ward in the bunch) is doing "Goin' Court'in" from "Seven brides for seven brothers." I am excited to be one of the brides. It's going to be great and pretty funny. So if you want to come that is at Olympus High in Holladay on March 1st at 7:00.
I love my life right now. It's very hard I have to admit, full of tough choices but it really is great. I have the gospel and I love every bit of it. I love my family and am greatful to both of my grandparents. Especially at this time to my Draper grandparents for letting me live in their house the last little while. They have been amazingly generous! Anyway this is kind of all over the place. I am writing this quite late but who knows, I may edit later. I may also add more because I know I've forgotten stuff. Thanks to everyone for being there for me!
