Dreams Come True

"Have faith in your dreams and someday
Your rainbow will come smiling through
No matter how your heart is grieving
If you keep on believing
The dream that you wish will come true."

Need a little inspiration?

If so read this article, click here. It is about an 18 year old, deaf and blind girl. I wish that I had half of her courage.

I really wish

That this (one of the many outfits that Lady GaGa wore to the VMA's) was available in my size.

For Halloween I was hoping to dress up as Jane Jetson, in some sort of futuristic lingerie. I guess I will have to start the search for the perfect costume again.

P.S. I am totally kidding, I would NEVER wear this.

My Little Hero

(My nephew, and his very best friend, Goose)

So this last weekend I had my family over for a BBQ. During this, a little disagreement happened between my brother and I (it was nothing big, I overreacted, and its fine now). My brother got up said something (I don't even remember what it was) and left the table. I put my head in my hands because I felt bad. My nephew, who is 4 then comes up to me and started rubbing my arm. He said "don't worry Gefney, it will be ok. Don't worry". He then goes to the family room where my brother was and I hear this conversation.

Nephew: You don't talk to her like that
Brother: She was the one being mean to me
Nephew: I don't care, you don't talk to her like that.

I thought it was so cute that he felt the need to protect me. Who needs a man, when you have a super cute nephew?

Fight Like a Girl

I love this song, the chorus is especially empowering. I hope that we all can fight like girls.
"Hold your head high.
Don't ever let 'em define
The light in your eyes.
Love yourself, give them Hell.
You can take on this world.
You just stand and be strong
And then fight
Like a girl."

Here's your sign

Every summer in Utah there is a massive amount of road construction. This is not something new. It's one of those things that you can count on. The sun rises in the east, and there will be road construction in Utah, you can set your watch to it.

One day last week, I was driving down a fairly busy road. This road had fallen victim to the evil ways of UDOT and was under some construction. It was in the middle of the day and there were not many cars out. We (my friend was with me) were stopped at a red light. When the light turned green no one moved. We got over to the next lane and saw the problem. A Honda Odyssey had ran over a road construction sign. This was not a little sign, it was one of the big diamond shaped signs. She was not able to move her vehicle without causing more damage. The lady driving the car next to her thought that this would be a good time to be a good samaritan. She got out of her car and tried to pull the huge sign out from under the Odyssey.

My questions are: How did the driver of the van miss this sign? Why did the good samaritan think she could pull it out by her self?

I hope you all have a wonderful, long holiday weekend. Watch out for those road construction sign, they sneak right up on you.
