Audrey Hepburn's Beauty Tips

Not to steal everything from your blog, Stacey, but I really liked this and thought this would be the easiest way to share it.

I guess when Audrey Hepburn was asked for "beauty tips" this is what she gave:

  • For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.

  • For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.

  • For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.

  • For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingersthrough it once a day.

  • For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walkalone.

  • People, even more than things, have to be restored,renewed, revived, reclaimed and redeemed; never throwout anyone.

  • Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you'll findone at the end of each of your arms. As you growolder, you will discover that you have two hands, onefor helping yourself, the other for helping others.

  • The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears,the figure that she carries, or the way she combs herhair. The beauty of a woman must be seen in her eyes,because that is the doorway to her heart, the place wherelove resides.

  • The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mode, but thetrue beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is thecaring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows.

Well, our date night the other night, as date nights for us often do, turned into running errands again. That's not necessarily a bad thing. We really enjoy each other's company and things do need to be done.

Well, one of the "errands" we ran on Friday night was MATTRESS SHOPPING! We were in the market, as it were. We had been ready for some time to "updgrade" to a King from our Queen.

Really, Scott is HUGE, and I think I'm above average for a girl, size wise. So, we were due.

Anyway, we picked it out Fri. night, Saturday, we compared with others around town, and then went back to buy our bed.

Which means, we put our bed in the guest room (which had been sitting empty for about 11 months)! So, now we have a beautiful guest room, so come on over any time!

WOO HOO!! We are finally going on a date tonight! I can't remember the last time we got to go out alone.
I have no idea what we are doing, and I don't even care. I am just excited to spend some uninterrupted time alone with my hubby. We have so much fun together, it doesn't matter what we do.
So, as soon as Scott and Jack get back from Taikwondo, off we go!

As a 1930s wife, I am
Very Superior

Take the test!

This is a fun little test I got from my friend's blog. How nice to know I am a good wife in the 30's. That really helps in 2008. I would have scored higher, but I had to be honest and I don't mend clothes and darn socks regularly!!

Truly, though, I do try to be a good wife and take good care of Scott. He does the same for me. Isn't that how it's supposed to work? If we each take care of each other, no one has to take care of him/herself!

So, I had Scott take it, too...


As a 1930s husband, I am
Very Superior

Take the test!


Now, I think we'll take them for each other and see if we were being too generous or hard on ourselves!

Here are the ones we took for each other!

I think its easier for the guys to score big on this one, because really, they didn't expect much of husbands back then, did they???

We had a fun trip to Bear Lake this last weekend! We left Thursday and got home Saturday evening.

We camped at Emigration Campground- about 20 ish minutes from the lake. It was beautiful, in the mountains.

Jack made sure our table at our campsite had a lovely wildflower centerpiece

Hasn't she gotten tall??

We went through Minnetonka Cave- it was amazing!

Bear Lake- so much fun!

Here are the directions: 1. As you comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember! 2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you. If you don't want to play on your blog, or if you don't have a blog, I'll leave my memory of you in my comments.

4th of July Weekend

We went camping for the Fourth of July this year! We camped near Victor and had such a great time. This time we stayed for two nights (and really, Scott and I agreed that we could have stayed longer). We hiked 3 trails (one short, one medium, and one long-for us anyway) The kids did so well, we were so proud of them. All four of them were such good troopers.

We swam, (the campground actually had a decent little pool), and we ate S'MORES! We also attempted seeing the hot air balloon races in Driggs, but unfortunately the wind was too strong, and they didn't take them up. We had a picnic lunch in Jackson, saw some breathtaking scenery, and Scott and I even grabbed some square ice cream cones in Swan Valley on the way home (the kids were all asleep!)

All in all, we are loving camping, and the whole family is enjoying more and more the hikes we take. We have made some fantastic memories this summer and are excited to make more!
