selfless. loving. joyful. artist. loyal


These are words that describe my friend Heidi. She is such an amazing example to me and I am so much better from knowing her. How does she do it? She works hard, loves hard, plays hard. She is an incredible mother. I have learned to listen better, to pay more attention. She touches something ordinary and it is suddenly fabulous. She truly is an artist. Her mediums are dishes, food, fabric, paint, canvas, paper, and wood.


I was spoiled this week by Heidi and her family. Thank you sweet Khloe and Paige for sacrificing your room for us. Thank you dear Matt and Lincoln for putting up with the chaos.

She knows how to make someone feel so loved and so special. My bed had a tray with welcoming goodies. Our days were filled with fun activities. Mealtime was always an exciting and delicious treat. Any free second was echoed with laughter and insight. I love Heidi. I truly think that she is so beautiful and I am so thankful to have her as a friend.

The sacrifices that she made for me were endless. Seriously. Words can't explain the endlessness of her niceness. I know that makes absolutely NO sense but she is so sweet.

She worked so hard to make my Little Miss Priss party perfect...and it was!! It was so fun to meet all of her friends and so many people who love and adore her. I heard from more than one person that she has been an answer to their prayers. Everywhere she goes she makes people happy. She makes people better.

She worked for hours with me to get her house all decorated and the food prepared. She sacrificed so much to make it easy for me. She even spent 3 hours in the backyard playing with all of the children while we were in the air conditioned house eating and partying. Again....seriously!!???

Heidi has an eye for anything beautiful and it she always takes the best pictures. It's so natural for her. She was so great at finding the perfect location and picking the perfect props. It was a blast!! Here are a few of my favorites:







I have added pictures of some of the delicious food that we made while I was there. For all of the yummy recipes plus many many more visit her food blog here. I do not know how to add photos from someone elses blog, but the top few pictures were all from the week that I was visiting her. She has the yummiest recipes and she is so good at cooking and baking and making it all so delicious and beautiful.





Here are a few more pictures with great memories attached to them!


Paige and Izzie...so sweet.

Hee, Hee!! This cracks me up! Hailey is so tall that usually dress-ups do not fit her so well. Case in point...this Fancy Nancy costume is a little small but she is still adorable!

Check out all of the princess shoes on the grass. These girls wore these shoes ALL week long! They were taking a break in the sand box!

Heidi had the kids do potato paintings. Of course they thought this was so fun!


The day that we left our home to go visit the Russells, our cocoons were starting to hatch so we decided to bring them with us. We enjoyed our butterflies all week and decided to let them go while we were there.

Their backyard is AMAZING!!! It is large and green and fun and beautiful. There are so many fun things to do out there and the kids had a blast. Hailey came home three shades darker from spending so much time outside. I loved it!!

Roxy is a beautiful dog and the kids thought she was awesome! Isabella especially...she formed a SPECIAL bond with Roxy!


Isn't this photo so sweet?

In terms of alerting search engines like google about new information on your own web site, a pinging assistance can be your companion. Lots of the larger sized running a blog engines like Wp offer standard pinging notifications within a paid out or top quality internet hosting service. You can also use solutions like Ping-O-Matic to by hand alert google search crawlers of brand new articles. [url=http://www.ss12w12ws.info]Scan2122344d[/url]

Use candles occasionally rather than electricity. This might appear to be just a little extreme, but candles provide great frame of mind lighting effects throughout foods, and once you observe television set, do you will need vibrant lighting on as well? Be sure you use soy products candles, even so, since a lot of paraffin-wax candle lights have harmful toxins such as toluene and benzene that burn up in to the atmosphere at your residence. Soy products candle lights cost much more, nonetheless they burn with no black color soot, plus they burn up correct to the conclusion without having bad enviromentally friendly influences.
