A refresher on my sidebar and an apology.

***Just a little refresher***
I wanted to tell you about a few things on my sidebar,
in case you ever look.
If you don't look or don't care, skip to the bottom of the page
as I take a large slice of humble pie and lead us all in a rousing rendition
of a very popular saying:

Beacon Beneficial:
Mr. Nielson and I are serious about life insurance. Remember how close we came to dying and leaving nothing? I never want to to that again. Mr. Nielson has begun selling his own life policies. If you are interested, check out the button. If you are really interested, Mr. Nielson will personally call you and talk.

Mitt Romney for President Campaign:
I am serious about getting a President of the United States who honors and understands the role.
I am for Mitt Romney. If you are too, please help by donating. Just something small. $10 bucks helps. Anything. If you are willing to help out, click on the button, then let me know so I can say thank you too.

My New life:
A video that was produced by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. {The Mormon church}. I agreed to making this video because I want to show anyone who maybe having a hard life, ruff day, or sadness to know that we have a loving Father in Heaven who is aware of us and our trials. If you haven't viewed it I hope you get a chance. It really shows how I overcame some of my darkest hours.

Nie Sails:
A cute video produced by Blue Lily photography, on our family sailboat at the Utah Lake.
Warning: If you get easily offended don't watch. The children don't wear life jackets the whole time.

Nie Skis:
My brother Andrew and I ski again first time after my accident. The resort is the breathtaking Sundance Ski Resort 15 minutes from my home. It was such a blast. {I wonder if lil peanut is OK with me doing that again this year? I don't know what I will do if I can't ski...} And a little fyi, I wear my helmet- as do my children...the whole time.

Blue Lily photo shoot:
Another adorable video taken close to Sundance {up near the Alpine loop}. My family has a massive pillow fight and it was filmed to Mindy Gledhills soothing voice. Very genius.

Holiday with Matthew Mead
This is a button for one of the most creative magazines ever printed.
I even get to be a part of it! I am a contributing editor.
This issue, I write about my annual "Back to School Feast".
I write and take photographs about this fun tradition and
I even share some delightful recipes. (Grandpa Clark's famous beets anyone?!}
I am soooo looking forward to the Winter issue!

Vintage Pearl
My go-to jewelry site for anything and everything you can think up.
Precious, vintage, adorable, sweet, and makes-me-cry jewelry.
{I felt that way before I was pregnant!}

Would you like a FREE copy of my favorite book? Button
This book is The Book of Mormon, of course!
Just ask. Nothing more. It wont cost you a penny.
I wont ask you for any information {unless you want the cutest 19-21 year old
young men or women knocking on your door to share with you the
best news you will ever hear- then maybe I'll need something.}

I am a Mormon button:
As if you didn't know already!! Just proud and grateful of it, that's all.

Contact information:
...and you should know, I am not very good at
"getting back to you", I try though.

In my archives:
If you ever have the time to go back and read-

My other blogs:
...that I don't keep up, sweet!

My Twitter account:
...which I don't do much. Just being honest.
Tweet tweet!

A Button from Nie to You:
If anyone still out there adds buttons to personal blogs, here is mine.

Public announcement for the AZ Burn Center
I am proud to say I once "belonged" to the burn center in AZ.
It was a crap, but they helped me get better and I love them- all of them.
Including Mario (Dr. Caruso) and of course my Dr. L!
This is just a short 30 second clip I did for a radio spot.

This was another neat opportunity for me to talk about my accident
with Mr. Nielson, in a beautiful setting where I could share my love of Jesus Christ. Conversations is a Mormon channel that is played all over the world to anyone
who is interested in hearing faith promoting stories and others
testimonies of the power of the Lord.
Its very inspiring. I was honored to be a part of it.
{and besides, I got to talk to Ruth Todd, I love that lady}

The end.

PS... dear you know who you are...N.C,
I am sorry for calling you out publicly on my blog
That wasn't cool of me.
I wont ever use real full names on my blog again.
I admit it, was pretty low of me to do that, I just snapped-
sorry it was directed to you sister.

Sticks and stones may break my bones,
but words will never hurt me.

Sticks and stones may break my bones,
but words will never hurt me
(Everybody now)

Sticks and stones may break my bones,
but words will never hurt me.
(last time)

Sticks and stones may break my bones,
but words will never hurt me.

{I feel better, don't you?}
