Alma 32:41

...Nourish the tree as it beginneth to grow, by your faith with great diligence, and with patience, looking forward to the fruit thereof, it shall take root; and behold it shall be a tree springing up unto everlasting life.

Meet the Wonderful, Talented, and Beautiful Bree Despain

Back in the day, I attended BYU. I lived in the same area (ward) for most of my time there. It was a blast. I love the memories I have of my time there and I love the people I met. I currently love Facebook for reconnecting me with many of those friends. It's so cool to see pictures of their kids and hear what they are doing now.
Bree was one of my roomates. We enjoyed many a Quantum Leap rerun while she taught me to appreciate pasta from a box and real fresh grated Mozzarella. I also enjoyed hearing her tell me about a Young Adult fiction book she was writing.
Fast forward about 10 years and we reconnect on Facebook just in time for me to hear her most AWESOME news! She sold her first book and an option for a second yet unwritten book! Here's her BIO and a synopsis of her book The Dark Divine . It's not the same book she told me about when we were students but it sounds incredible! She is extremely creative and talented and I can't wait to read it. I'm going to suggest it for my book club. :) Her book will come out about this time next year (which is fast in the publishing world).
While we wait for her wonderful book we can read her blog. Her current post is an amazing giveaway especially if you are a YA fiction lover like I am. Go check it out at Confessions of a Mere Mortal . Enter her giveaway and be sure to let her know that you found her through me so that I can get more entries. :)
Woohoo! Congrats Bree! I am so excited for you! You deserve a following. :)

Lime Ricki and 30 days Giveaway

Lime Ricki is an awesome swimsuit shop with cute MODEST swimsuits. It is nearly impossible to find that combo Cute and Modest. After having two kids I definitely need both to convince myself to appear in a swimsuit in public. And the heat here in So Cal sees us at the beach or the pool as much as possible in the summer. I need to win the giveaway at 30 days! Go check out the giveaway and the swimsuits! They are awesome! Make sure you say I referred you because then I get more entries!!!!

My friend is published on All Recipes!

HeeHee. My good friend Jess and her husband posted this recipe for Graham Crusted Pork Chops on All Recipes. I haven't tried it yet, I need to get some Graham Crackers. It is going on the menu plan very soon. If you try it before me be sure to post your review at All Recipes too. It needs some reviews so more people will try it. :) I trust Jess and the ingredients look good. Go try it!!!
