What is Serum???

Does anybody know what serum is? I heard someone recommend it for skin care. And I've seen it in a couple of skin care lines. But I have tried to do some research, some being the key word, really not to in depth. Anyway, to find out why it is so good for you skin and I got nothing. What I got is that it is something in blood and plasma. How does that relate to skin care? Do any of you beauty experts know?????

Hurricane Grey!

See this little guy. He hasn't always been this little. When I first got him about 8 years ago he was 5 inches long. He's gotten a lot of use. And he's been a lot of places with me. Ricks, England, Ireland, France, Brazil, Mexico, BYU-Idaho, London again, and Israel. I've decided, since he almost disappears in the sharpener, its time to retire him. He's been faithful and kept me looking good. He stayed with me and never got lost. And I've stuck with him. What can I say. When you find a good thing why try anything else.

Automotive tip #46123

On Saturday I was on went to a Colors concert at the Sandy amphitheater and I pulled into the parking lot and all of a sudden there is a whole bunch of "smoke" (we later realize it was steam) coming from my car. We (my cousin was with me) jump out to investigate and we see fluids gushing from underneath my car. "HMMMM. This is random." I've had my car for four years and I have never had a single problem at all. Not even a flat tire. Ok, so I've been a little spoiled. Well, we had a concert to get to and I wasn't too worried anyways. I know how to fix any problem with my car. I call Daddy.

I called my dad. He came to the rescue. We found a puncture in the hose. Thank goodness that was all. I knew how to fix that one without the help of my dad. DUCT TAPE. Which is exactly what we did to patch the hole until I could go buy a new hose this week.

The moral of this story is...keep a role of duct tape in your car. It holds the world and my car together.

PS. The concert was fabulous.

You Are Cilantro

The bad news is that there are some people who can't stand you. (Sorry Jill)

The good news is that most people love you more than anything else in the world.

You are distinct, unusual, fresh, and very controversial. And you wouldn't have it any other way.

Good Bye Summer!!

I love September. And as much as I love summer I love it when it starts to cool off. It givies me motivation to start running. Backwards, I know. Usually people run more during the swimsuit season. But I like to run when its cold outside. The whole summer I've been dragging feet as I went out to go running. Mostly because of the heat but also because I really need a new route. But as soon as that crisper air is outside I have to get out and go.

Many of you know that I have been happily unemployed this summer. And I've enjoyed every minute of it. Fortunately and unfortunately those days are over. I started a new job this week. I am back at Zions Bank. I am ok with it. Its not the job I hoped for but it will be a good job. I am a loan specialist in the corporate banking department. So far I like it. There is a lot for me to learn. But I really like the people I work with. I am one of three women in the department. And I like it. There is so much less drama and men are just good to work with. No offense women. And I know not all women are like that, but I really enjoy working with men.

I loved my summer. It was full of travels and trips and fun. But I guess it is time to move on.
