My mom hired me to design an invitation to New Beginnings for the Young Women in her ward. She told me she wanted a "treasure" theme, maybe with a treasure chest, gold coins, and stuff like that.

She said the scripture was 3 Nephi 13:19-21.

LOVE that scripture, and let's just say I'm pretty thrilled with how it turned out.

Your biggest error.

Dear everyone,

I'm about to unveil the biggest reason you should NEVER start dieting as your New Year's Resolution.
Oh these?? The limited edition Candy Cane flavored Joe-Joe's?!
No. That's only part of the reason. These aren't even mine. They're my mom's.
So why do I have them? because my mom started dieting.

Let me break this down for you. There's two types of people.
Those who diet for their New Year's Resolution...
and those who get to eat all the snacks left over from Christmas from the people who couldn't eat them fast enough before they started their New Year's Resolution diets.

Also, there's still CARTS full of Christmas candy at Smith's for 75% off to make room for Valentine's day.

Also, EVERYONE diets for the New Year. Listen to your inner hipster, people. Don't squander it!! Be an individual! Decide to do something more bold like EXERCISE or take up KNITTING or become a JUICING CONNOISSEUR.

He must have ingested some cray cray pills at Bombay House tonight... He keeps bringing up the possibility of us getting a cat someday. I'd like to hang on to this little aspurration and never let it die.

I have read a bunch of miracle stories about Bengal cats somehow producing less dander and having more hairlike fur than fur which helps tame allergies.

Future cat:

In the meantime, anyone have a Bengal cat my husband can sniff? We are available to cat-sit right meow :)
