Best of 2008!


  • Only having to go in the joint once! 
Best record in 4 years. I am so grateful for Aztreonam and USANA, I think they both are making the world of difference, and contributing to the record.
  • Starting this blog. 
Meeting all my blogging friends! Love you all!! Even though I haven't met most of you our friendships mean a ton and I know they will last a lifetime! 

My Brother did an amazing job putting it together! We raised over $5,000 for this year for Tatse of Salt Lake.

I want to thank Lissa for making the beautiful Love to Breathe Pendants that many of you have. Lisa tell Brad I am thinking about designing a mens line ;) Also want to thank Everyone that has supported Love to Breathe and helping make CF stand for CURE FOUND!! 

  • TASTE OF SALT LAKE
It was our 10th annual year and we raised over 250,000 best year ever!!!! We more than doubled last year. I can't wait to see what 2009 will bring! We are so close to finding a cure I truly believe its right around the corner. So thank you for all your support this last year. I appreciate it more then you will ever know!


  • HOT SAKE 2008 NewPort Beach Reunion
The Newport trip is something I did every year growing up with Rickis fam and when we all grew up we stopped going. I think we had a 7 year lapse but when we got back to that beach house we all picked up right where we left it! I had so much fun! I nicknamed the beach house "THE COMPOUND" and I didn't leave the beach or the beach house for a full week!


  • Every second that I got to spend with My AMAZING Family and friends in 2008 was PRICELESS! 
I am the luckiest girl I know. I have such an amazing support system and for that I am so grateful!



  • My Baby Boy Oscar turned 4. 
He is getting so BIG but he still loves his momma. He lets Lills run the roost he is a very good big bro to her.
  • My Baby Girl Lilly turned 3. 
She is a lil spitfire and thinks she is the boss! But she still loves to cuddle with me and is very protective of me.
  • My Heroes that got a second chance at life thanks to total strangers who chose to give the gift of LIFE!! 
Will, Sara, and Tanya you are an inspiration to so many!! Keep up the Amazing work, I can't wait to see what fabulous things come your way in 2009.

this is one of my paintings... I love hearts!
  • Madonna's STICKY & SWEET tour!
BEST TOUR OF 2007 and 2008 most likely 2009 too!!! Since her CONFESSIONS tour was in 2006 and I don't see her touring again for a while.
  • The University of Utah Football Team 
We went undefeated all year and will be playing in the Sugar Bowl tomorrow! GO UTES!

My Bro & I on the field
  • Being a calendar girl! 
I was selected to be Ms. May on the TOBI calendar for 2008. It was so much fun to have a photo shoot for that. The favorite shot was the one with my babies and I on the grass up in the right hand corner of my blog.

  • Turned into a Mac girl... never going back!
Love My Iphone and my MacBook I recommend them. Apple is genius!

  • Turning 29.... 
( but really can't wait for the BIG 30 in 2009)


2008 was GREAT!!!! I am looking forward to another great year in 2009!!! I wish everyone Health and Happiness in the upcoming year! Today Jan 1st Utah goes smoke free and Utah will also start Newborn screening for CF, I am so excited! Those two milestones alone in my book are a Fabulous start to 2009!!!

Loves to you all!
