If you have (figurative!) beef with someone, talk about it with him/her directly, not with other people.

[Wo]Man up if necessary, then take your grievances to the original source.

“And if thy brother or sister offend thee, thou shalt take him or her between him or her and thee alone…” 

                                                                          -Doctrine & Covenants 42:88


getting off soapbox now  🙂


“Choose not to insult others or put them down, even in joking.

Avoid gossip of any kind.”

Though I rarely (if ever) use profanity, a certain Halloween costume is a BITCH!

I’ll let the video speak for itself:

Regina George may think people can wear whatever they want on October 31st.

ImageBut Katherine Anne does NOT!


There are many beautiful, wonderful things in life in which to find humor & joy.

The Holocaust is NOT one of them.


If you agree with me (and you should!), please spread this message/post anyway that you can.


Oh, also I read a book by the German LDS General Authority F. Enzio Busche. 

It changed my life.


  Must write about it soon.  Until then, here’s a wonderful video by him:

But back to costumes (bookending again!),

here is one of my personal favorites of my own:


Strong women are hot, ya’ll.

Click here for some of my other Halloween hits (literally!) and misses…

And speaking of, if somebody’s costume offends you,

don’t be afraid to stand up for yourself.

Take a tip from my friend (pictured above!) Rosie (the Riveter).

And to sum up in one brilliant phrase my beliefs on costumes,

allow me to quote from THE greatest playwright of all time.

“There is much truth in jest (for good and for bad)”

~William Shakespeare

Now it’s time for a little text-to-self connection (my favorite part!):

Righteous Readers: what do your Halloween Costumes say about you (for good and for bad)?

PS.  If you think the fact that there is a Picture of a Pumpkin on this Post (about Halloween!) is a coincidence, THINK AGAIN.

Ms. Norbury’s truth

I’m not a big fan of the film “Mean Girls.”  I feel like in many ways it glamorizes girls being unkind and catty toward each other.  And we all know I ain’t about that.  But there is truth to be found in sometimes unexpected places:


“You have GOT to stop calling yourselves sluts and whores.  It just makes it okay for guys to call you sluts and whores.”


Also, you are pretty, even if your Liz Lemon character isn’t always.
