Fairy Godmother...

Yes, I am a Fairy Godmother...
A Godmother...
But I like to think it's pretty official.

(Not such a great picture of me... I believe that was a day I worked a 10-hour shift... and so... yeah, you can see it on my face. But baby Brooks II is so cute!)

I went to visit this little bundle-o-joy at the hospital a few days ago and he is absolutely ADORABLE! In fact I told Heather that I would come over to hang out with her just so I can hold this little guy.
She said, "OK."

Heather and Brooks are going to be such AMAZING parents and I am SO happy for them!
One thing I do not recommend doing is walking around with little Junior in your arms. It makes everyone nervous. I made that tiny error when going to get my camera to take this LOVELY picture of myself and baby when I looked at Heather and her face was nothing but pure fear. I felt SO bad.
Don't worry Heather, I will not do that again. Unless I have permission to do so otherwise.

He is truly a blessing.

My SMARTIE sister, Ani just found out she was accepted to the
BYU Marriott School of Business!



She will do great things.

As I told Kirk last night,
"I am surrounded by success..."

Samoas... my ABSOLUTE favorite.

And Thin Mints... can't EVER go wrong with these.
Both must be frozen in order to be fully enjoyed.

SO EXCITED. How excited?

words of wisdom

"Girls, Aim high, but do not aim so high that you totally miss the target.What really matters is that he will love you, that he will respect you, that he will honor you, that he will be absolutely true to you, that he will give you the freedom of expression and let you fly in the development of your own talents. He is not going to be perfect, but if he is kind and thoughtful, if he knows how to work and earn a living, if he is honest and full of faith, the chances are you will not go wrong, that you will be immensely happy." — Gordon B. Hinckley

alright alright alright...

Ok... I have been thinking long and hard about this... (Sad, I know.)
HOWEVER, after being totally annoyed and full of loathe and hatred for a Mr. Jason Mesnick, I have concluded that it was inevitable.
After giving up the BEST bachelorette EVER -- Jillian (good thing she is having her own show) -- We knew he had the potential for being another major LAME-O jerk.
I mean, COMMON!
A live television break-up?
Asking out the very girl you dumped only months before?
I'm sorry... although I'm not a huge fan of Melissa nor Molly, I think Jason is living in LA LA land...
Jillian: You definitely dodged a bullet there my friend.
