Friday: Mustard, art and toys

5 Aug

I had a fun time as usual hanging out on the Ogden outdoor adventure show. I am so excited it is the weekend again and it is now less than a week away from getting WISDOM TEETH OUT! Don’t forget that if you make an appointment with Dr.Jim Ellis he will donate $100 to a local charity of my choosing. hmmm…so many choices so send me your suggestions!

Also a little known interesting factoid, today is national mustard day! I have no less than 6 different types of mustard in my fridge on any given day…sweet, spicy, regular, weird i have it all. I think tomorrow i will try and make a mustard glaze for some salmon. Lucky me my older sister lives in Alaska and likes to send me packages full of amazing fresh Alaska seafood. seriously, best sister ever.

On another less exciting note i am still job hunting and i have come to a point where in order to keep from feeling completely worthless i have decided to channel my energy into something a bit different. I am going to start getting creative and i think i may be filming a little resume for a company i am dying to work for. If it doesn’t work at least i had fun right? And if you are a local business that needs a hard workin‘ gal like me then shoot em an email at
