Vegas Vacation

Eric and I went to see my sister and Jason in Vegas and had a great time! We went to see "O" and I showed them my amazing Farkle skills. We ate at Mon Ami Gabi at the Paris and it WAS YUM-MO. We also swam and Cort hosted a Gold Canyon party for her friends! It was very fun and relaxing, and we can't wait to see them again.

Also, Cortney announced that they have a baby on the way! We are SOOOOO excited.
Our friends just welcomed twins, and another friend had her second little boy, so we are very excited for them as well!

Our newest venture

I am now an Independent Gold Canyon Demonstrator! I am pretty much obsessed with their products, so I decided to earn some income from that enthusiasm.

I am having an open house at my mom's on Saturday, September 11th at 11 a.m. Please e-mail me at or if you want to come. There will be a drawing for prizes (including custom Flossy Christmas cards) for those individuals who bring a guest.

Also, you can order from my website at

The best way to get everything on your wish list is to host a party. I am trying to schedule parties weekly in the next couple of months since the Christmas Catalog is AMAZING. There are tons of items that anyone would love to receive for Christmas. I really want to get my new biz off to a great start.

Flossy Stylish Design is doing well! Thanks for your continued support. I am so blessed to be able to design your wedding invites, baby shower invites, baby announcements, graduation announcements, etc. I love having a small part in all of those big life events!

Don't forget to schedule your photo session if you want a family photo on your Christmas card. E-mail me for photographer options in your area. We have worked with photographers from all over, so even if you don't live in Arizona, please don't hesitate to ask for referrals.

Eric has started Brophy Hockey again, so we are getting excited for the season!

Homeless Landlords and Shamu

We rented out our house and had to be out last weekend. It was SOOOOO hot. We couldn't have survived the move without Jon, Summer, Jason, Eric's parents, or my parents. THANK YOU! We are so blessed to have such amazing family and friends. Even Baby Chase helped! Thanks Vince and Theresa for allowing us to stay with you during this transitional/indecision time of our life.

Eric's Grandma Joyce went home to heaven at the end of June. She will be missed, but we know she is happy to be with the Savior that she so longed to see. It was nice to be able to spend time with Eric's extended family...

For the 4th of July weekend, we headed to San Diego for one of my BF's from Point Loma's wedding. Emily and Matt had a beautiful wedding and reception. We were talking and laughing so much that I didn't even have a chance to take any pictures! For the 4th of July, we went to SeaWorld with Steph, Jon, and Chase and Josh, Susie, and Anisa. It was chilly, but fun! We came home and had to work, work, work! We now have some time to sit back and think and pray about the next step...

A little reminder from the Sound of Music

I don't want to copy Oprah with the whole "Favorite Things" thing, but sometimes when the dog bites or the bee stings, or if I'm annoyed with work or sick of thinking about wedding invitations, it really does help to remember my favorite things... these are items that make my life easier, shows that make me smile, etc.

Favorite Show
Glee--- It's amazing... I've always wished that life was a musical, and this show features amazing vocals and funny acting. Eric took me to the live show for my Birthday present... and it rocked!

Favorite Items #2 and #3

Floor and All-Purpose Cleaner from Gold Canyon-- they are safe and natural, and they smell delicious and work great!

Favorite Exercise

The P90X Plyo workout... I feel SO GOOD after I'm finished.

Favorite HGTV Show

Sarah's House-- she's amazing... she dresses well and has the most incredible job ever!

Favorite Shoes

B.O.C. by Born-- They are extremely comfortable and cute! I can wear them all day.

Favorite Makeup

Kirkland (from Costco) has paraben-free liquid foundation, concealer, and powder for around $15. Love it!

Favorite Skin Care Product

Usana Facewash, Body Wash, Lotion and Night Moisturizer... love it... been using it for years!

Favorite Pimple Corrector

Malaleuca Zit-Zap works really well and doesn't over-dry skin. Favorite Glass Cleaner
After trying everything from wipes to vinegar... I LOVE the kind from CostCo the best! It's called Sprayway glass cleaner.

Congrats to the team and the coaching staff. Hoody can add this to a long list of accomplishments! What an amazing job!

Goodbye 2009

We went to a Coyotes game with some of Eric's family and mine on New Year's Eve. The game went into overtime and then to a shoot out and the Coyotes had to go and lose.

It was a fun game though! Baby Lily slept through the whole thing! Even through the annoying guy making weird noises behind us...
