Friday FIVE for September 10th

Here’s list of randomness that makes me happy …


I took this picture!


My mother baked me this sugar-free blackberry pie. I still have three pieces hiding in the outside fridge — not that any of my children would actually finish eating a slice if they took the first bite — it’s tart. BUT … I love that my mom made it especially for me (and sent it home with Clark a week ago!)


The fact that my sweet Tafty still brings me flowers.


My growing collection of vintage aprons that allow me to listen to podcasts while cooking, cleaning or folding laundry.


My friend Lisa B has a new updated website. I’m always rather amazed and delighted when I hear that one of my industry colleagues is “still in the game” and having fun. Lisa’s got some cool giveaways — but I think they end today, so go now!

Even though school just started, I pulled Clark out for two days, so we could do this, with a group of 10 other people (mostly my siblings.) Since I’m the oldest sister, I get the shortest and easiest legs of the 180 mile journey through southern Utah. I have a hunch it will be really beautiful and pretty memorable!

Wish us luck!


  1. Fabulous stuff! Can’t wait to see photos of your trip. P.s. I love vintage aprons too!

  2. Best of luck on the run Stacy! We have a race here called the Death Race and they definitely don’t brag about the scenery! Love the hearts on the pie, too!!

  3. Wow. The RRR looks really cool. Have fun. Can’t wait to hear about the race and scenery.


  4. Good Luck! You will be right in my backyard! We live in St. George. Hope you have a great time.

  5. Sounds like fun! Hope you and Clark have a great time!

  6. oo0ooooooh….I’m envious of your relay run! I hope you are having a great race and post some details.

  7. Good Luck with the race! I live in St. George too. My friends are running it too. They are the “we’re kinda a big deal” team.

    • Ally,
      Phone reception during the relay was spotty at best. I totally saw your friends van several times, until I read your comment (of course) after that I didn’t see them again–bummer, as I would have said hello!

  8. Wow! Love today’s five!
    Best wishes on your relay!

  9. You go Stacy! That relay sounds amazing. I hope you post pictures.

  10. No way, you did Red Rock too! I was there. It about killed me, but in an awesome way, of course. :) What was your team name? Ours was “Endorphins make people happy so…up yours.” :oP

    I never of thought of wearing a cute apron that would hold my iPhone!! That’s brilliant!! How have I been doing it, you might ask? I wore my water bottle/fanny pack around the house (not pretty).

    Any suggestions on places/sites the sell cute aprons?

  12. So….How did you like the race?

  13. Love a tart pie Stacy! Would fight you for those last few pieces ;)
