Hey everyone-

Well I just thought that I would let you all see these fun purses that I sell. I am not sure if you have heard of the Miche Bag? But in April I started selling them and haven't stopped loving them. The cool thing about this purse is that you never take anything out of your purse. All you do is change the outside and make it look like you have a lot of purses.


-The "Mini Miche" is the first purse you can see with the 3 shells. These are smaller purses meant for little girls or those that like that size.
-The second purse has the Black Tiffany Shell
-The third purse has the Camille Shell

They have tons of shells that are still coming out. If you have any questions or comments you can email me or just leave a comment. Remember Christmas is coming up and I would love to help you with any Christmas shopping!!

Last weekend we went to the annual Air Show in Las Vegas. For those of you that don't know Chase's family is way in to planes. Chase's dad, brother and many other relatives have their pilots license and their own planes. Chase will start working on his license when he graduates with his Masters next Spring... I can't wait!!

You can't really tell but there is a tiny sky diver at the beginning of these pink lines. That was something new this year with all of the skydivers. Someday that will be us, Chase and I can't wait to try skydiving.

So I know this is a totally random picture... but I just had to post this picture of my cute hubby.
My brother just bought this old tractor and it ended up at my moms house. Chase was pretty excited when he saw it and had to jump on and test it out.... I guess you could say he is definitely a true farmer at heart!! I just love this guy so much!!

Last weekend Chase and I took my mom golfing at the good old Delta, Sunset Golf Course. Chase bought me golf clubs our first Christmas. Unfortunately I have not used them as much as I should... but I am trying to do better. We had a ton of fun and I actually didn't play too bad!!!

First night of our Card Club was so much fun!! My friend Julie and I got invited to join this card club. We decided we could use some creativity in our lives and accepted the invitation. So we all made 6 Birthday cards and took them to exchange. Then when we were there we made the cutest clipboards. I had never used MOD PODGE before... and now I think I am going to be addicted!! Next month we are doing gift tags.... I already can't wait!! Julie thanks, for doing this with me.... you're awesome!!

Sad to say but our Softball League has come to an end! This was our first year together as staff, husbands and friends. It was a lot of fun! We took second 2nd in our division and 2nd in the tournament. I would have to say that is pretty darn good for our first year! Go Cavity Crushers!!!! Hey if you don't get it I work for a dentist office... hence the name "Cavity Crushers," Chase actually helped with it. Oh yeah I forgot to tell ya that I died my hair dark about a month ago... did you notice?? I love it Kristie, thanks so much!

Meg's Shower

This last weekend we had a shower for my sister-in-law Meghann. She is getting ready to have a baby girl on Oct. 21. We are so excited for her... congrats Meg & AJ. The shower was lots of fun, she got lots of cute stuff!

Work party!

Those of you that don't know my boss or the girls I work with are totally missing out. I work for Dr. White and some awesome girls. Dr. White totally spoils us and our families. Not only did he take us on a cruise and sponsor our softball team but he is constantly having get-togethers for the staff. For a little fall fun we got together at his cabin in BrianHead. We had some yummy food and road 4-wheelers. Thanks Dr. White and Kris!

Some pictures of my way close friends: Katie with her son, Breccen, Julie and her husband Craig and her brother Cody. Last but not least Vannessa with her hubby Casey.

YW's Garden Party

Some of you might not know... but I am the Young Women's secretary.. and I absolutely love my calling. As a presidency we decided to have a Garden Party... Here's the picture! As you can tell some of them didn't get the memo about wearing fancy clothes and some funky/fancy hat. Oh well, it was still fun! Like my golf hat? Thanks Chase, it was the only thing I could find around the house!

Les Miserable

I can't believe that I am actually putting these pictures of me on here with my cute braces... but I just want you to see what we've been up to. During the Labor Day break, Chase's mom took us to Tuachan to see Les Miserable... it was so awesome!!

Camping at Kent's Lake

My family decided to start a tradition and start camping the first weekend of August every year. This year it was Kent's Lake. We had a blast hopefully we can keep this tradition going! These are just some funny pictures of our neices Addie, Kara, Oakley and Elle. There is also one of me and my lovely 3 brothers.

California Road Trip July 2008

Guess who... well it's me and I thought I would make my post for the last couple of months. Chase's brother Jared and his wife just move to Cedar! So we have been hanging out tons. This summer we took a road trip to Anaheim California for a little Red Sox game and some Disneyland. It was a quick trip, but lots of fun!!!

That's right Girls Camp 2008! Two weeks before girls camp I received a calling in our new ward. I can't tell you how excited I was when they asked if I would be the secretary of the Young Womens. I honestly jumped for joy. I have always wanted to be with the youth and especially the young women. The first question I asked when I received this calling was... "Can I go to Girls Camp?'' The bishopric just laughed at me. Well sure enough the next day I got that Thursday off so that I could spend the whole 3 days with the girls. This was the best opportunity for me get to know the girls and for them to get to know the "real" me! Not only was it fun with tye-dying shirts, hiking, cooking, playing spoons (not to mention me jumping across the table looking for the last spoon), watermelon eating contest & laughing hysterically with eachothers skits... but it was also very spiritual when it came to the last night. One of my favorite girls bore her testimony and started by saying, "Well first off I have to say that when I first met Sister Dea... umm or Chri..umm... can I just call you Sister Dee. Well, anyway I thought you were going to be boring... but now I have changed my mind and you are a lot more fun and I really like you!" That is just one of those warm fuzzies that makes you feel so good. Here and there I also heard other comments like, "Sister Dee, you are one of my favorite leaders." I don't want this to seem like I am boasting. But these girls have such open hearts and minds at this age and the smallest things can mean so much to them. I love them so much and can't tell you how much fun I had at girls camp. I totally know that this calling was inspired. Oh, one more thing. I don't know if you can tell in these pictures? But I also got braces on June 18. Everyone thinks that I am crazy but when you work at a dentist office you notice the small things. So I decided to get braces on the top and correct a few things. I will have them for 3 months at the most? So I guess we will see?

Well as you can all see, I am a terrible blogger! I don't know how anyone can possibly update their blog everyday. Oh well, maybe I will make it to that point? Anyway, I thought I would give you the monthly updateS.
I will start it off with the first week in May. It was a pretty cool experience! A really close swedish member from my mission has been living in Utah going to BYU. Well, she fell in love with an American and got married and invited my companion and I to go to the wedding. We were in her area for 6 months together and gained a really close relationship with her and her family. The friendship with her father was pretty special too. He was not and still isn't a member. But during those 6 months we met him on a weekly basis to teach him about the gospel and the importance of having it in your daily lifes. It was one of those stories where the whole family are members except the dad. He does everything a member does but just hasn't made those special promises. Anyway, to make a long story short.... he wasn't able to go in the temple with the rest of the family but it was such an excitement to see him outside the temple. I always hoped to see him again, but thought it would be in Sweden. Anyway, this is one of my favorite companions from Hawaii and Juan Vasquez. This family is originally from Chile. The next picture shows Ann Marie (the bride) with her mother Gina at the bridal shower. These are those special experiences that make you savour every hard minute on your mission.

St. George TriAthlon

St. George Triathlon

After our 2nd tri... the ShacTri (April 19, 2008)we decided that we would try a little bigger one. Chase's little sister Tara did that one with us... but we couldn't convince her to do the next one. On May 10, 2008 Chase and I did our 3rd tri at Sand Hallow . It was the biggest one that we have ever done. My brother Jeremy and cousin Tyler did it too. The weather was so bad that after they did a couple of heats they wouldn't let mine or Chase's group go. Instead they cancelled the rest of the swim because two many people came in on the rescue boat. I am not going to lie but I was so relieved because that is my least favorite part.. I hate swimming even though I know it is good for you! So they started our race from the end of the swim so that we could run to our bikes and have that transition. Chase's heat started about 20 minutes before mine but after we passed each other on the bike he decided to wait for me so we could finish together. That was probably the best thing about the whole race. We FINISHED TOGETHER.. the run and all!! Now, that is something that I will never forget. These are the kind of moments that you charish and will never forget!!
