Help my new friend have a WONDERFUL weddding

I know I was supposed to blog about my life and blah blah but my new friend on twitter sandc4e is trying to win her wedding night dinner. Now we all know how costly weddings in general can be. This contest is a chance for this couple to not only cut the cost but have an AMAZING dinner after they get married here in wonderful Las Vegas. Until last night they were way in the lead and now not so much. Something strange seems to have happened. The person "beating" them some how got over 100 votes in just a couple hours. Something smells fishy yall!! ...more

Nominated!

First off, I was nominated for Mormon Mommy Blog of the Month and I'm so excited and honored! Especially since I'm not even a mom yet and I blog about "my journey toward motherhood." I'm a new blogging like this, I just started a couple of months ago so I really don't have much of a following yet but I'd love it if you checked it out and voted for me here. ...more

Wow!! Your comment made my day! Thanks so much for voting! And for the link to your blog! ...more

Poem for President Elect Obama

In line with yesterday's post, and inspired by two poets' poems on the subject of yesterday's voting, Rachel Barenblatt and James Stone Goodman, here's my poem about yesterday's election results. ...more

Voting, then Buying a Handgun

My husband and I did two things on election day. First, we voted, dropping off our ballots at the country courthouse.  Then we drove up to Kirkland to buy a handgun.  Oh, yeah, we voted for Barack Hussein Obama and Christine Gregoire.  First time in his life he voted straight Democrat, first time he ever voted for a Democrat for President. We would have stayed up watching the election returns and drinking champagne, except that the situation the country is in is too grave for that. ...more

Liza from CultureKitchen, on voting.

From CultureKitchen.com I wish I could have written this.  I think it is the piece of writing I want to preserve most about the election.  Although it speaks to an experience that I cannot fully know, it helps me understand. http://www.culturekitchen.com/liza/blog/i_voted_i_cried ...more

Be careful who you vote for

The decisions you make today are going to affect more than just your life -- other people are more involved than you realize. This doesn't mean that you should make different choices than you were planning to make, it just means that if you do, you should be prepared for some conflict -- not everyone is going to be happy. (abridged from Washingtonpost.com) ...more

Voting Day

I just got home from voting... spent 5 very long hours in line! I got there at 9:30am and voted 5 hours later when the line only had a 45 minute wait- and people were complaining! turns out my district is the 2nd largest district in the City of Norfolk and they only had 7 booths! Then one went down, then and only then did they bring in 2 more booths! To the Elected President: you owe all of the 2nd largest District foot and body massages!!!! ...more

Why I voted third-party

Also posted on my blog: Becca's Cyber Home  I've been an Obama fan ever since he spoke at the 2004 DNC, and I've been a supporter since he announced his candidacy for President of the United States. The only blip was Bill Richardson's short candidacy--and darn it, I was really hoping for an Obama-Richardson ticket! But despite those years of fandom and support (both philosophical and financial), I voted third party this year. ...more

Reducing Election Day Stress and Anxiety.

By now, if you are like me, your election stress level is through the roof. But, it's time to let go of your stress. Once you have placed your vote, the outcome is out of your hands (let's face it, it was never in our hands). So, why worry about something that you will not be able to change? Regardless of the outcome, you will wake-up tomorrow morning, and your life will go on as it always has. ...more
