Great quote by CS Lewis

Jen don't kill me, but I don't want to lose this quote, but I want to change it, so I am moving it to my blog. lol!!!

"[God] has infinite attention to spare for each one of us. He does not have to deal with us in the mass. You are as much alone with Him as if you were the only being He had ever created. When Christ died, He died for you individually just as much as if you had been the only man [or woman] in the world." C. S. Lewis - Mere Christianity [1943], 131

It's New Car City

My dh and I are the proud owners of a Mazda3s Touring edition hatchback. And we really like it. It really is very zoom-zoom. It's just fun car to drive. We purchased it on 11/11 and brought it home on 11/13. And we've been enjoying it ever since. I highly recommend this car. Plus, we got a great deal. It was $20,500 out the door. Such a great price.

This means we are once again a two-car family. We really haven't been one since the early days of our marriage. It's actually kind of weird to think we can go different places at the same time. But we still mostly go everywhere together. :O)

And to see if my sweetie ever reads my blog, I just want to tell him that I love him. Posted by Picasa

BYU is Ranked

Okay, I am back. And with excellent news. BYU's football team is ranked #25. That's right #25. All I have to say is "BYU Rules".


I am so sad

In the whole scheme of things, the reason I am sad isn't a very big thing. I don't want to go into it all, because it will just upset me more. But I am very sad right now. (Maybe in a couple of days I can explain why.)

Vote Tomorrow!!!

I cannot stress how important it is that everyone in the United States vote tomorrow. If you are not yet registered to vote, it's too late for tomorrow. So, instead of voting, get registered to vote. That way, this will be the last time that you do not vote.

We are so blessed have the right to vote. Yet so many of us do not take advantage of that opportunity. Please do not be one of those people. Vote tomorrow. It does matter.

Which Car Should We Buy

Okay, my hubby and I are looking to become a two car family. Unless we can drive the Nissan Versa before we are able to make a final decision, we have narrowed down our choices to two cars: Toyota Matrix or Mazda 3 (five door version). For us, there are pros and cons to each one. So, if you have any experience with either car, please share it. I wish I could buy them both. lol

I will have to say while car shopping yesterday we did run into quite the deal on a mini-van, but we just couldn't bring ourselves to get it. It was a 2005 Kia Sedona that was brand new, but had never sold. So, they were offering $10,000 off the asking price so it was $19,000 for a mini van w/ leather, DVD player for the rear seats. Nice mini van. But just not what we wanted.

But please any experiences you have with the Matrix or Sedona, please share them.

Vote No on Prop 3 in Florida

First of all, elections nationwide are this coming Tuesday. So, no matter where you live, please take a few moments and go vote. It is so important that you do.

NOw, if you happen to be from Florida or if you know someone from Florida, please urge them to vote against Prop 3 in Florida. Prop 3 is being advertised is as a means of saving our state Constitution. It's not. Instead, it's an attempt to take away the rights of Floridians to make important decisions regarding our state's future.

It seems our legislature does not like to pass bills that the majority of Floridians support, such as the ban on Smoking, the Save our Homes act, a minimum wage increase and a limit on fees in medical malpractice suits. I know that the Save Our Homes act did not receive the 60% of votes required by Prop 3, even though more than 55% voted yes. Without this act, many long-time residents could no longer afford the taxes on their homes and would be forced out. You can view this Cener Stage blog to read an important article on Prop 3 from the Miami Herald.

I think it's critical that Prop 3 does not pass. So, please consider and tell you friends to consider voting against Prop 3 in Florida on Tuesday, November 7th.

LO: The Melting Pot

This is my first layout for my new CT AndreaDesigns. I am excited to be part of her team. I really like how the patterned papers from this kit, Dinner for Two, worked together.

What I can't believe is I am scrapping a picture that is only two weeks old. I am usually years behind. :O)

You can find all of the credits for this layout by viewing my Digi Layout Gallery.
