Crazy about Wildtree

I recently went into business for myself, representing an all-natural food company called Wildtree!
Wildtree was founded on the premise that food should be natural, nutritious, delicious, and easy to prepare-- all at the same time.

So instead of using preservatives, additives, MSG or dyes, Wildtree products are made with the finest natural ingredients available. Instead of "good for you" foods that lack flavor, Wildtree products are taste tested winners. Instead of lengthy, complicated, time consuming recipes, our products enable you to create great tasting dishes with just three or four ingredients.

Our collection of spices, mixes, sauces and more, add simplicity and versatility to cooking. Let's face it, we're all about keeping it simple in the kitchen.

Wildtree is also a fantastic business opportunity for those who want to make extra money or replace their current income. Ask me about joining my team! It's a blast.

I also do in-home tasting parties. For a fun night our with friends, host a Wildtree tasting party and earn YOUR groceries for FREE!

It's the Final Countdown

*Insert that cheesy 80's song by Europe* If you don't know what song I'm talking about, then I'm just old!

It's official... we are moving to Utah. Sooner than expected, we are outta here on June 27! We were planning to move next June, but for us, the right time is now. We are going to stay with my Dad until we secure jobs and can find our own place. I'm certainly not proud to say that I am 35 years old and having to live with my Dad, but I'm so lucky that he is allowing us to do so until we get on our feet. There are a lot of things that I will miss about California, but I am so excited to be back in Utah where my family and friends are. I'm sure once we are moved, my blog will consist of new and exciting updates about my Dad's cat kicking my little dog's ass.

I've started looking for work, and if the right opportunity comes along for me, I will move now. I will hate to leave David, but you have to do what it takes. He gave his work his notice last week. They were shocked and sad, but understanding.

I left my job in March and have been doing Wildtree in the meantime. It's been a nice break from the 9 to 5 thing I've been doing for the last 15 years. It's been therapeutic to have some time to myself and to meet new people, but it's time to dive into a new job. I'm hoping, praying and wishing on stars that I get a job that I applied for at the University of Utah. It would be a dream job... so everyone cross your fingers for me!

In the next few weeks, I'm sure I'll have lots of stories about crap I've accumulated in the 10 years I've been in California, coupled with cardboard boxes, bubble wrap and packing nightmares.

Ugh... pass the wine.

Blogging... Take 2

Well, as some of you might know, I use to have a blog. I deleted it. That was stupid.

Anyway.... I've been sucked into the world of blogging.... again! What in the world could I possibly have to blog about? In most peoples minds: Married + no children = BORING! My life is quite the opposite. My husband David and I don't need kids to be interesting. Trust me. Let me give you some examples.

We treat our pets like they are children. Seriously. They have more toys than most toddlers on this continent.

We are a family of 2, and we drive a monstrosity of an SUV.

We sometimes sit side-by-side on the couch and text each other. We think it is fun.

I won't buy generic brand ketchup. It just tastes weird. My friend Jen pointed this out to me. In fact, she coined the phrase "ghetto ketchup". I concur. If I come to your house and you serve ghetto ketchup, please notify me in advance so that I can bring my own.

I love to vacuum. I have a weird obsession with my Dyson Animal. I love using it and then inspecting the junk that I suck up. Sometimes I even save it to show people.

I am a huge USC fan. If you are at our house during a game, you aren't allowed to speak, unless it's during commercial. If you cheer against the Trojans you will be cut out of our will and taken off of our Christmas card list. In fact, it's best you park in your garage, because I would probably key your car.

I love reality TV. I'm not ashamed to admit that I am addicted to America's Next Top Model, The Bachelor and The Hills. I also enjoy mindless shows about high school kids- Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill and 90210. Go ahead, make fun of me, but make sure you sleep with one eye open.

I actually hate movies that can't really happen. Don't try and get me to watch Lord of the Rings, The Matrix, The Hulk, Iron Man or other stupid movies like that. They aren't real. Now, Sex and the City- that is real life. Four skanky women who love shoes! If that's not real life, I don't know what is.

David does a remarkable impression of a cheerleader. I encourage you all to ask him to share this hidden talent. He usually has to be begged or bribed, but it's worth whatever it costs you. Offer to buy him a pair of shoes. The way to his heart is through his feet. Ah, a man after my own heart. Oh, and ask him about the time he tasered himself. This probably explains his frequent bouts of tourettes. Friend who is a cop + "Hey David, check out my taser" = A BAD IDEA!

I love my family and would do anything for them. This blog is mostly for them, since we live in another state and don't get to see them as often as we would like. It's also for my own personal entertainment, as I am easily amused.Come back and visit often, as I promise not to disappoint.
