*Ahh snap!*

I can't believe I failed to announce that my nephew Nash, is getting married in 3 days! Oops! He is our cowboy in the family and she is a REAL cowgirl. We are gonna have a whoopin' good time at his reception. Cowboy hats, boots, and the works! Can't wait. I love him tons and also love the girl he is marrying. They are a great match.

Ps. The photo beneath their invitation is me holding him as a baby. I was 16. Weird how fast the years have passed. Don't hate me because I was beautiful. *rolling eyes*

Pss. Not sure who the photographer is but I'll find out to give her/him credit.

*Dub Dub Dubsteppin' ...RAD!*

I know I said no more videos, but I'm totally without a personality right now. Watch this guy Dub it up! I might dance way better than he does but, I would never say that out loud. heh heh

On September 21st my niece Tiffany, gave birth to her first baby, a beautiful little girl that they named *Elliana Sage Van Voorhis* She is adorable! 8 pounds! Lot's of dark brown hair and huge bubba lips! So cute! I couldn't stop kissin' those chunker cheeks! :D Tiffany & Josh are so in love with her and are already loving the feeling of being new parents. I'm so happy for them and proud of them! I'm also excited to have this baby be a part of our family.

*Loss of inspiration*

So, I'm in quiet mode right now. My blog is so boring! Who want's to watch all these videos I've posted? I don't! hahahah I'm sorry, I feel a bit blank and uninspired... tongue-tied? Without feeling? A mute?! hahahh

I think this photo say's it all. It's cute and say's it all. I'll try hard to get my spunk back.

*Muse sings "Streets"*

So glad I heard this! No one is allowed to cover U2 in my book. Only a few select songs by select people. I can honestly say that Muse did a brilliant Job! Of course it wouldn't be as good without the key to the song, THE EDGE and his guitar. Well done!

*Ivy & Gold*

So, I went on walk at the Beach in Spain with my Best Friends mini-shuffle.  I had forgot my iPod so I borrowed hers.  I asked Heavenly Father a question (something I often do on walks) and it was interesting because several songs came on that kind of applied quite well, in a strange sort of way, to what I asked.  I didn't know any of the songs and my friends mini-shuffle doesn't show the name of the song or who sings it.  So I wrote some lyrics down later and looked them up on iTunes when I got home.  I found this song to be especially fitting.  It was kind of crazy because a photo of one of the bands albums came up and It was a photo I had seen before. A photo that had puzzled me and I wondered where it came from or what the meaning was behind it.  Well, it came from the cover of an album by the Bombay Bicycle Club. Ha!  One of those Serendipity things I guess ;)  Anyhoo, here's the song.  It has stayed in my head and It makes me happy.  Hope it makes you happy too.

*Psalms 46*

Perfectly appropriate for today. Thank you, Mr. President.  This is one of my favorite Psalms and one of the most powerful.

Psalms 46

1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;

3 Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof.

4 There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.

5 God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, just at the break of dawn.

6 The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted.

7 The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge.

8 Come, behold the works of the Lord, what desolations he hath made in the earth.

9 He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire.

10 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.

11 The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge.

*Thought for the day*

"It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell."

*Spain Spain I know your name!*

I went, I saw, and I loved it. Spain was great and seeing my British friends who I haven't seen in 10 years was even better. So grateful for the opportunity to go. I'll post pics soon...but until then, here is me with my awesome tan I got! *wink wink*
