I made the front page!
They love me on Times Square...
Somewhere in Russia...
Even Paris knows me!

And the fashion world reads about me...

Who knew?!

The play, the play!

So, as I have mentioned before, I am in a play this coming Christmas season. Go here to purchase tickets. Remember, if you want to see me in it, I am in it on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday matinees. A lot of them are sold out, so hurry quick and buy them! It is not to be missed for the season.

Gracias and good luck!

Sean has been reviewed

My brother Sean, a.k.a. "Definit" is a writer of raps. He's amazing, actually. Check out a review they did for his most recent album "Definit is not here". You'll find the review here.

Megan's big b-day (yesterday)!

(Pictured with her two handsome sons Kalin and little Kai)

Dearest Megan, Mekana, Meg-ster, Big Sistah -

I love you because you are:

Giving (of everything you have)
Considerate (of everyone)
Accepting (almost to a fault)
Loving of absolutely everyone
Forgiving (I could learn a thing or two)
Quick to laugh
Quick to fake-smile for a photo (family joke)

My big sister amazes me all the time. Not only is she all of these things above, but she is so much more that I simply don't have room for. She is one of the most kind and genuine human beings I know. She has been through her fair share in life, and I'm amazed sometimes that she has the strength to keep going. She does, however. She doesn't look back (like some may), but she keeps going, and for this I know she'll be blessed. Love you Megs!

Gift of the Gab

I'm a talker. I am. I admit it. Some days I realize it more than others. Why am I this way? Was it a pre-disposition inherited from my talker of a mother? Or maybe because I kissed the Blarney Stone twice? Could be. Yesterday I realized just how much of a talker I am as I was chatting it up with a co-worker. Not only do I talk, but sometimes I have no idea where this talking is going. I rarely end up with the subject with which it originated. When this happens, it drives me absolutely crazy (however, I secretly hope the person with whom I am speaking doesn't really notice). And so it was yesterday. I would start with one subject, then before I even finished a thought - I was on to another! Sheesh! Dear Friends, thank you for being my friend - though I talk, talk, and talk more. I know it can be annoying, because sometimes there will be someone that talks my head off too! Bless us all, but mostly, bless you for listening.

Carolina of the North

Hangin' in Huntersville (just outside of Charlotte) with my homey nephews Gavin and Ryan. Caiti and Kurt decided to take a long needed vay-cay to Sweden, so Shannon and I are holding down the fort in the yellow house. I'm only here until Monday, then Shannon is taking the reins all by her lonesome until next Friday (eeks, I fear for her). Nah, she'll do great. I'm sure she'd rather have her husband here, or any kind of adult, however. She tends to be... afraid.
Tomorrow we're taking a short, but long-awaited day trip to Asheville to see the luscious Fall leaves. They are not at their peak here in Charlotte, but I've been told it looks pretty darn amazing near the Blue Ridge Parkway. The leaves pull me; they beckon me to come. I must answer the call.

Pictures to come!

Lost in translation

Hi Friends,

So, today I went to El Pollo Loco for some tacos (excellent, btw). After I had finished my meal, I decided to take a tasty cup of Flan home for later. Upon ordering, the cashier asked my name. I spelled out E-R-I-N for him, and when I got the ticket, I realized this is what he actually heard.

Bless his wee little heart.

Conference Weekend

Every 6 months, the LDS church holds its world-wide General Conference. It is always the same time of year, Fall and Spring (which just happen to be my top two seasons). I always look forward to inspiring talks from our leaders, singing from the Mo-Tab (Mormon Tabernacle Choir) and a renewal of spirit. However, I also look forward to spending time with family and taking the traditional drive into the Provo Canyon only minutes from my house in between sessions. Conference usually brings with it lovely weather, but every now and then we have what some might call bad weather. I call it heaven. Yesterday I woke up to the sound of rain outside my window, which of course meant I got to stay in my cozy bed and do absolutely nothing but watch conference! Oh, how I love it! Of course I love a sunny day, but there is something about a rainy day that enchants me. I think I may have inherited this from my parents :)

Well, today started out rainy, but by the time the first session of conference was over, the sun peaked out through the low lying clouds. This is when I decided to take the much anticipated drive through the Autumn-themed canyon with my nephew Kalin in tow. The trees and shrubs were drenched in pink, red, orange, and yellow. It was absolutely breathtaking! Even Kalin (who shows very little emotion) was impressed. We drove up to Vivian park, then to South Fork where it was raining just a bit. We got out of the car at this point to feel the cool air and rain on our faces. Blissful is the only word I can think to describe it. Truly, it was bliss. I'm amazed at this beautiful earth, and give thanks that I can enjoy its wonders every day.
Here is a pic of Kalin and I at Vivian Park. He's only 13, and he's taller than me!
A lovely weekend, indeed. How was yours?
