#34 Ask the Audience

This photo has nothing to do with the following post. I just found it, and it made me smile and also, I needed something to motivate you to comment.

Ok so the past few days (and by days I mean all of June) have been rainy and icky and no fun. Many of my fellow Minnesotans (me included) have been mumbling and grumbling about the icky weather, but something magical happened today, The sun came out! Which means it's time to stop all this dooming and glooming! Therefore, it's time for a list!
Here are the top 5 things that made my day just wonderful.

5. A letter from my good pal Elder Bolton
4. A wonderful day at work with a wonderful coworker
3. Peanut butter banana smoothies with chocolate chips
2. Nupa (blog post to come) followed by loud car singing with some pals
1. Laying out in the sunshine with My bff oh life miss Kathryn

And now guess what! It's your turn! I want to hear the top 5 things of the day, or the week, or the month for that matter! It's time for you (and I mean YOU) to spread some love! Leave a comment with your top 5! I can't wait to hear from everyone (and I mean EVERYONE)!


  1. Oh the pressure. I can't handle the pressure of creating a list! It's been gloomy and doomy over here in Colorado too. Today was our first day above 60 degrees in I don't know how many days. So we've done nothing fun over here.

    Since I can't make a list of the greatest things about my day or week, I will make a list of 5 questions for Catherine:

    1. Where do you work? You've mentioned "work" a couple times now. You don't have to name names; "sanitation engineer" works just fine.

    2. What's with the encyclopedia-reading juice box?

    3. Are you coming to the reunion next month?

    4. Where is Elder Bolton serving?

    5. I have no item 5. I am a tease.

    2. I beat my dad at the Wii, after he laid down some heavy trash talk.
