Internet Surfing....

I just stumbled on 2 things that I find really FUNNY. We will start with the kind of weird one first...

Anyone that knows me, knows that I have 2 chihuahuas that are my favorite. Ellie and Diesel. We just got a new iMAC (YAY!!!) and I don't have any pictures updated on here yet.. so I just took a picture with the computer! This is what has been on my lap while I have been internet surfing for the past hour.

You will notice that Diesel totally has his tongue in poor Emerys nose... eew.

Anyway, here is the crazy blog that I found. I think she might be a little crazy!


Now the next funny thing, I seriously laughed out loud! I have always been told that I am a really crafty person. But I seriously think this tops it all!

Blog surfing is kind of like People watching and I think that is why I like it so much. When I lived in California, I would go to San Francisco just to sit on benches and people watch. There were some CRAZIES there!

What an AMAZING man!

Now can you even believe President Hinckley died? I can't. That was such a shock. He is in a much better and happier place now. And I am sure he is just thrilled to be back with his beautiful bride. I am sure he was welcomed with open arms!

This is my favorite picture.. he was such a sweet man!

He has left us with a lot of amazing words...

"I have experienced my share of disappointments, of failures, of difficulties. But on balance, life has been very good. I have tried to live it with enthusiasm and appreciation. I have known much of happiness, oh, so very much. The root of it all, I believe, was planted in my childhood and nurtured in the home...I cannot be grateful enough." President Gordon B. Hinckley

“Father...please help them to walk
in the paths of truth and righteousness...”
*President Gordon B. Hinckley
Youth Fireside 2000

“The time has come for us to stand a little taller, to lift our eyes and stretch our minds to a greater comprehension and understanding of the grand millennial mission of this, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This is a season to be strong. It is a time to move forward without hesitation, knowing well the meaning, the breadth, and the importance of our mission. It is a time to do what is right regardless of the consequences that might follow. It is a time to be found keeping the commandments. It is a season to reach out with kindness and love to those in distress and to those who are wandering in darkness and pain. It is a time to be considerate and good, decent and courteous toward one another in all of our relationships. In other words, to become more Christlike."

Am I a bad MOM??

Okay, so I have been WAITING for the day when Emery would just sit on the couch or floor and watch TV!! I try it almost daily lately just so that I can get things done. Well, for the past 30 minutes.. she has been sitting on the couch watching Blues Clues and some other animal show. Seriously.. I am in heaven. My house is spotless and now I am just waiting for my next hair appointment to come over.. This NEVER happens! Yay!!


This pic was taken with my iPhone.. sorry it is krappy...

Brad Paisley!!

Last night my mom, my older brother and I went to Brad Paisley! Braun is out of town recruiting and so he couldn't come. We had so much fun! It was an awesome concert.. I think I might have a small crush on Chuck Wicks who opened for him. Seriously, he was so good and I had never even heard of him! :) Anyway, we had a blast! Here are some pictures! I didn't have my camera, so these were taken with my phone!

I sure was excited!

My mom, me and my SINGLE brother! Know any cute single girls? Send them his way!


Okay so I haven't been too good with my Flashback Fridays, so I am going to make it up for the missed posts in ONE BIG POST!! I am not going to lie, I am a little embarrassed to put this on here. I went down to California with some of my bestest friends. Heather, Amy, Ashley and Jamie. We had such an amazing time! It was my last friend trip as a single woman! I mean, who could resist a price is right winner?? haha.. just kidding. Braun actually went and asked my dad to marry me while I was on this trip!

Anyway... don't make comments about how ugly I looked that day. I didn't want to go to this show in the LEAST bit. I just wanted to hang out on the beach all day long while my friends went. Well, after about 8 hours of waiting in line.. this is what happened!
These were some boys that we met while waiting in line!

This was a boy from Texas that got on the show and won an easter egg blue Kia! Hey... its better than nothing!

The DRAFT!!!

So last night we figured out our Summer DESTINY!! This summer is going to be so different for us! I don't know whether I should be excited or bummed. Bummed because we aren't going to move anywhere or excited because we aren't going to move anywhere!!! Gosh.. I am never happy! Anyway, the guys in Brauns region found out where they were all going to go for the summer. I am basically going to be traveling all summer long! It is going to be so fun I am sure.. Lets see... where will we be going??

North Carolina
South Carolina

Hmmm... there are a few more states but I don't really remember which ones they are.

Well, these 2 pretty ladies are going to North Carolina. I am sure I will be out there a lot! I love them! Here is a picture of us last night! I stole it off Kara's blog. When I upload my pictures from my camera, I will share a few!

The Wild N Crazy Simmons!!

The Platinum Gals~

Landon Braun and Greg! I love how Greg is so excited in this picture!

(Thanks Kara for the pictures!!)

So Fun!

So the other day, I got to go and take pictures for a company that is just starting. Oh I am so excited for them and I know that they are going to do AWESOME!! They are starting a company that comes to YOU on your big day (or any other day for that matter) and they do you, your bridal party and whoever elses hair and make up that you want done! I totally wish that I would of had that when I got married. Or even for dances.. heck.. even tonight! Anyway, here are a few of the pictures from that day. I had a blast! Oh and by the way, if you want phone numbers.. let me know! Jenna does my hair and is AWESOME!!




And these 2 girls are Jenna and Sheridan.. Jenna does the hair, and Sheridan does the makeup!!

Okay, so I just found out that putting pictures on blogger really screws up the editing. These pictures really are a bit brighter as I edit, but when I post on here.. not so much.. hmm...

Kara and Angie...

This is for you!


So when are we all going to get together and watch Friends??? :)

Okay, so there is a story behind this picture! Kara Simmons, Angie Haaga and I have been wanting to just kinda "hang out" in our wedding dresses one night. One day, it WILL happen!!! Anyway--Jenna and I were hanging out last night and we got the bright idea. So of course, being the idiots we are, I got it on.. walked down the "hall" and suprised Braun! haha.. I don' t think that he OR Matt (Jenna's hubby) thought it was very funny.. but Jenna and I were dying. Here is a picture of Em thinking her mom is crazy!

So, I rarely post pictures of my family, so I thought that it might be fun to see them on here every now and then! Here is my sister Heather and her hubby Mike. She is 3 years older than me. She has 3 kids! Jaron, Kendall and Kaidon. I don't have a picture of Jaron on my computer, but here are the rest of them! Aren't they a cute family??

**********FLASHBACK FRIDAY!!****************

Remember how I was saying awhile back that I was going to do a Flashback Friday?? Well, I totally forgot about it.. So even though it is "technically" Saturday, I don't care. So I have a story to tell you guys about this picture.

Well, this is Braun and his friend Spencer Kehl. Most of you guys know that Braun and I were friends in high school. Well, a few years after HS, Braun and I ran into each other country dancing. So, this picture was taken about 1 or 2 nights after we re-met dancing. Braun calls me up and asks if I want to go with him and Spence to SLC to one of their friends houses. I wasn't doing anything and so I said "sure!" Well, we go up to SLC and hang out there for a little while. We were driving down 6th South and we pull up to a red light. I guess there were some hot girls in the car next to us. I am just minding my business when they tell me to DUCK!!! Isn't that rude?? They were picking up on girls with me in the back seat! I saw this picture and I just had to laugh! Dumb Boys!

This is a picture of the day that Braun left for Virginia for the summer. I wasn't sure when I was going to see him next. We were planning on getting married on September 9th and this was in April. I don't know why I was smiling so big because that day was terrible! Braun was going on the longest car ride of his life! (30 hours!) We got to beat that record though on the way to ATL!

What the krap? The picture is going sideways.. it isn't that way when I upload it! Dang.. sorry!

Here are some pictures of Washington DC from that summer.. I loved that place! My parents came to visit me for my birthday while we were out there. This picture was taken in front of some big greenhouse thing by the capital. My mom loves greenhouses!

Now, the Washington DC temple is in the most amazing spot. You are driving on the freeway, you turn around this corner.. you see graffiti on an overpass that says "WELCOME TO OZ" and there is another that says "SURRENDER DOROTHY!"(from the Wizard of Oz--my old time favorite show ever!!) and then BAAMM! There it is.. Oh, it is such an amazing thing to see. I guess that is one of the worst places to drive on the freeway because there are so many accidents there. Oh it is beautiful! This isn't the best picture.. it was really smoggy that day! P.S. I just read online that they have to repaint those overpasses a few times a year because of the graffiti about the temple.
