Made weak by time and fate,
but strong in will;
To seek, to strive, to find, and not to yield.

Side Note:
The fork. or Also known as "A Dingle-hopper" Reminds me of one who not only had amazing hair (that I would pretend I had as I swam in our pool as a young girl) but also for me represents a young woman who loved learning about everything and anything. Who pushed past barriers and boundaries to find her place in this world. In this industry education is key and you are always always learning. Everyday! And with that requires perseverance to reach goals. The industry of beauty is all about testing, pushing and surpassing barriers and boundaries. This industry is truly SWEET!!!!

Aunt Sandy and Me.
The YUM-O Cakes. Chocolate Raspberry and Vanilla with Lemon. OH so good that I took all the leftovers home and paid for it with an addition of 4lbs thanks to the very high tech scale at Dr. Huish's office. But oh it was worth it!!! So So So Good!!! And I'm not a cake person!

So, A whole lot of nothing with the exception of an awesome baby shower, a new addition to my side of the family and THE CARDS ARE GOING TO THE SUPERBOWL!!!!

Who's the new addition? Amber had her 1st baby on Saturday January 17Th. Her name is Paige LaRynn Cooper and weighed just under 7lbs. Sorry. I don't have any pics of her as they are far away in Vegas. I've only got one peek of her thanks to a picture text to my phone.
She might get some up on her blog soon. Feel free to check it out. Last name Cooper's.

I want to send out a huge THANK YOU!!!! to all those who came to the baby shower. And especially to Jen and Mariesa for putting it all together for me. It was so fun and so appreciated!
And last but not least.....
GO CARDS!!!!!!
