I LOVE the Mormon Messages and this has always been one of my very favorites because I can relate so well.

- Since I started my Biggest Loser Challenge this week I thought I'd share my most favorite recipe I tried this week (there were really so many good ones to choose from). Since I'm a pizza and mushroom lover this one just clicked for me and taking a bite was like a walk in heaven- SO good:) This will definitely be a much used recipe for me!

For my birthday I got a wii. I have been wanting one forever and I finally got it! It's been a huge hit with the whole fam. We love bowling and Mariokart the most. Baily's so good at bowling- it's awesome. We love playing with my bro and his wife online while skyping. It's AWESOME!

I shamelessly admit there are many. But here are my top 5:) (And yes my hubby is perfectly aware of them;)
Larry Fitzgerald from the AZ Cardinals
Josh Groban (we have the same birthday so we're soul mates:)
Dwayne Johnson- The Rock
My first stop would be to Utah to visit my mom whom I miss more than words can tell!
Next up would be AZ to visit my wonderful family there whom I miss more than words can tell.
And then my dream vacation would consist of some of these places- New Zealand, Scottland, Machu Picchu, Venice and Sitka Alaska. I think I may just be a mountain girl!

I've been struggling a lot lately to discover what my talents are and here is what I came up with. I have compassion and love and forgive easily, I am a pretty good cook, I rock at board games, I used to be pretty good on alto sax, I used to be pretty good at public speaking, I used to be pretty good at the flute and I'm very competitive and used to be good at most athletics. Looks like I have a lot of sharpening up to do on my talents:/

Starry Nighy by: Vincent van Gogh
I've always loved this painting- it's magical and dreamy!
Caterpillar by: Baily Bug
My sweet little daughter loves doing any kind of artwork and this was one of her earlier pieces that I just adore!
I wish I had some pictures of my Grandma Holwick's art. I was named after her and her artwork is simply gorgeous! I have always loved her art!

I am half Tlingit Indian which is an Alaskan Indian Tribe based off of Sitka Alaska. I am of the Frog Clan which means I get along with all sorts of people- land and water creatures. I always loved frogs growing up (I even had a pet frog named Toni!) and was so excited to learn that I was of the Frog Clan. I have an ancestor who has a totem pole he made in the Smithsonian. I have never been to Alaska and am ashamed to say I don't know a whole lot about my tribe and my people's history but I will go there someday and plan on learning more about this great heritage. My dad has always taught me to be proud of my Native heritage and I truly am so proud of it! (I even beat up a kid in daycare for making fun of Indians and my dad was so proud!)

Ok. First thing you'll probably learn about me is that I can't choose just one favorite of anything really. I love lots of things. And that's certainly the case when it comes to music. But instead of listing the hundreds of songs I adore I'll keep it to 5.
I Know That My Redeemer Lives by Linda Rowberry
*see video below
This was from the EFY cd the year I went to EFY and words can't express the emotion this song rouses in me. It has increased my testimony, held me up in unbearable times. I love this song. I love my Savior and I KNOW He lives!
Caribbean Blue by Enya
I just think this song is so beautiful and whenever I'm stressed I like to listen to this song and just melt away into a stress-free beautiful world.
Weeping by Josh Groban
Not only do I LOVE my Josh, not only are our birthdays on the same day (we're soul mates you see), but his music really moves me. I could pick any of his songs to be my favorite but this one is just so moving to me. I even got to see him sing it live in concert and it was a moment I'll never forget!!
Nightingale by Yanni
I admit- I am in love with Yanni. I have been since I was a kid and I've gone to a couple of his concerts- life changing! This is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard!!
He Lives In You from the Lion King Broadway Musical
I really do like more music than just sentimental ones but these are the ones that just reach my soul. Ok... now that everyone knows what a dork I am I think I'll go be productive or something.
