Can you iddentify this plant???

This is a plant I've had for a few years. I bought it at WalMart around Christmas time. It said it was a lily. It has never flowered. This is the most prolific it has ever been with its leaves. Usually there are only 2 stems with a leaf on each end. Anyone have any idea what this is? It doesn't look like a lily.






A close up of one of the leaves.




And I am finally posting a few pictures from my NY trip earlier this month.

Here is our sexy car. Sadly, Pontiac will no longer be making this one. :(

Here I am in said sexy car! :D


While we were up there we were doing some genealogy for the Parker line. Here is one of the cemeteries that we visited. Very beautiful.

A possible relative?

After our genealogy section, we drove over to Palmyra to see the Smith family home and the sacred grove.

Happy Birthday!


Thank you everyone,

I had a nice birthday. Went and saw 2 movies today and had a great lunch at the Olive Garden. May I just say, the young Captain Kirk is much more dashing on big screen isn't he. :)

Alright. Well I must dash. It is late!! But I have a plant I can't identify that I will very soon post photos of. We'll see if any of you know what it is! :)

Love ya!

YouTube has the strangest stuff

Check out this video. This is what happens when I don't feel like doing anything and get zonked out in front of the computer. I find strange stuff like this!

Soggy Sunday

Hi everyone,
I'm having a hard day today. I'm trying to be positive, but I feel pretty lost. I don't feel like I have any one to talk to about it. I should be in church, but I can't take it today. The weather is very fitting for my mood.

So... if anyone still reads this blog, S.O.S.
Prayers will be much appreciated. I'm going to go see if I can't talk myself into going to church.

Been gone a while

Sorry for the lack of posts for a while. I've been in transition. Life is good. Just looking for work and trying to keep myself busy. I'll write again soon. I've got to go take out my contacts... they're killin' me!

Wolverine

I saw the new movie "Wolverine" last week and I just have to say that I loved it! What did you all think of it?

There's not much new going on with me today. Later this week I'm taking a very exciting trip to Palmyra, NY. I love my adventures with Aunt Julie! Seriously... I would be such a dull, un-cultured girl without her! Anyway, we'll be gone for a week.

Some people wanted to know, and others, I could'a swore I told... but the plan is to live in SLC with Julie until she leaves on her English teaching adventure in August(?) or July... not sure. Then I'll be living with my lovely parents again. You all should come over and see what kind of havoc I have wreaked on the place come October or so. But you should come see me before then too!

I have been given the okay to paint ONE small wall in the basement bathroom purple... I also intend to set up a nice little kitchen area for myself and a make-shift living room too! So it'll be like my own little apartment! I'm living with my parents while I pay them back the massive amounts of dough they spent on me to get me through college!

Anyway, I am still looking for a new job. I miss my old one. Alas... it is time to move on. I really want to get hired on somewhere at a print shop that does full bindery work. I've always wanted to know how books are put together.

Okay, I am blathering on now... Talk to you all soon!

I Graduated!!!

Hi Everyone,
Can you believe it!!! After 10 years and many many doubts, I finally got my bachelor of Fine Arts degree!!! I can't tell you how excited I am about this!!!

I checked my grades today and yes, it is true... I really will receive that diploma! I got an "A" and an "A-" in my last two classes! I couldn't have asked for more! I guess all the bargaining with the professors must've worked!

SO anyhow, I have been kicking it back this first day as an ALUMNUS of Utah State. Tomorrow I'll be trying to organize my stuff in my new pad and then its on to the JOB SEARCH! Yikes! It's tough out there right now.

For those who wish to know, yes, I am back with the folks come August. Until then, I'm living in SLC with Aunt Julie. You all should come and visit me.

My head hurts, it's been an exhausting week of finals and moving and a LOT of driving! I'm going to bed!
