My Eye

It's my eye. Funny I should post such a thing but I love my blue eyes. I am glad my parents gave me blue eyes. I have always been sad that my kids didn't get my blue eyes, but I hope they love their eyes anyway.

Dear Eyes,
Thanks for being healthy and allowing me to see my beautiful family.

It feels so nice to go home once in while.

Last night I had an opportunity to go home, back to my "old floor".
It was hard to leave my patients,
because I fall in love with them so fast,
but I agreed to "float" because I knew who I was going to work with.
Teresa and Kim. 
Dang those two girls are pee your pants funny.

Kim

Teresa



















Dear Teresa and Kim,
I am SO happy I had the chance to spend some time with you!!
It felt SO good to be "home".
Ya'll never FAIL at making me laugh.
And you ALWAYS laugh at me and I love that.
Ya'll are great friends and great nurses.

Two of my kids are employed!!

Alyson and Bryant
have jobs.
UNBELIEVABLE!!

Alyson works at Educational Outfitters,
where she sells uniforms.

Bryant works at King Soopers,
where he bags groceries and pushes buggies.

I am proud of them, they both are working really hard, seem to mostly enjoy their jobs, and enjoy having their own money.
(Which I very much enjoy!)



Dear Alyson and Bryant,
I'm proud of you.
It's important to always work hard.
Working hard will help you be happy.
You can accomplish anything with
a little hard work.
Keep it up.

My 20th High School Reunion

My 20th High School Reunion is
right around the corner.
And I'm NOT going.
Sorry but UMM...Not really my thing.
I pretty much HATED high school.
And I can't imagine trying to remember who
the people are and if I need to apologize
for something.
So GMHS, Thanks but No Thanks.

That's me on the far left. Immodest but still pretty dang HOT.
Also rebelious, notice I refused to stand in the typical
prom pose.


Dear GMHS Class of 1991,
Thanks for the invite, but I have to say, "No Thanks".
If there are any of you who I offended, please forgive me.
I am sorry for many of my actions as a teenager.
But have a blast without me.
Love,
CoRi dAwN

My little Emilee wants to grow up.

Every little girl wants to grow up.
It's sad but it's true.
Things like shaving legs, wearing a bra,
having a ., and even getting a kiss
are all on the "list of things to do to be grown up".

My little Emilee doesn't need a bra.
Not yet.
But she wants to grow up.
And bra wearing is on the list.
So..
she came up with her own solution.

A HOMEMADE BRA.
That's right, a homemade bra.
Made out of her very own undies.



When I asked Emilee about her creation she laughed and said,
"All you gotta do is cut out the crotch out
and put them on upside down".
GENIUS I TELL YA. PURE GENIUS!
Emilee actually did this about a year ago but I post what I don't want to forget.
 
Dear Emilee,
You crack me up. Really ya do.
And you are super smart!
And I love your bra.
Love,
CoRi dAwN

I love Sundays!

EXCEPT....
Today I had to go to a meeting and I realized that I have PTSD!
Back story~
Several months ago I went a meeting and after an hour and a half I thought the meeting was coming to a close and then the doorbell rings and in walks a super boring man with HUGE packets of information. He then went BLAH BLAH BLAH explained the packets in great detail for another hour and half. I seriously HATED struggled through that meeting. I couldn't help it. I wanted to stand up and say,
"Hey,I have ADD! Can we end this! Please"

OK, so today I went to Ward Council and as I walked in I saw that same man with the same packets! My heart started racing and I started freaking out,
SERIOUSLY. FREAKING. OUT.
I thought I was going to die.
If I had the choice, I might just choose death over listening to him for hours again! Really it was truly that bad.

But I do love Sundays,
I love remembering what matters most and
I am often reminded on Sundays.


Dear Super Boring Long Winded Man,
I am sorry I hate listening to you, I can't help it, I have ADD.
Love,
CoRi dAwN

Just a little drive to the movies.

Girls night out fun...Featuring: Carrie M.

This video is of four super fun (young) middle agedish
women on a girls night out.
SCARY right?! 
 But we had a blast.

You are going to have to go click pause on my playlist below, if you wanna get the full effect of Mrs. M.
Dear Carrie M.,
I heart you! You have a love of life and a spirit for living, that I envy. PLEASE keep singing. Really. That was most enjoyable and I would love to hear you again and again.

Just So Ya Know...

We made it to the top of
Devil's Head!!

Me, Mike, Emilee, Jarret, my niece Isabelle,
my friend Staci and her son Kyle
all made it to the top.
1.5 miles pretty much straight up
and 143 stairs to the look out.

I wanted to die.


























CHAMPIONS!!!

It might hurt, but
you can do it.
