My Johnny Boy

This is a somewhat random post but I was feelin' it tonight so I had to share. Even though I may not share political, religious, or any other view with this man we are absolute soul mates in music. My one and only true music love John Mayer. The things this man can do to a guitar..  I can't describe. Here are a few of my all time favorites.

Gravity..(In all forms but especially the live in Los Angelos version on the
"Where the Light Is" Album)  I could never tire of this one... That guitar whines....

I got dreams baby...Whoa, Whoa, Whoa,.....I got dreams....

Slow Dancing In A Burning Room...(again the live in Los Angelos version from the "Where the Light Is" album. (excuse the B word) :-( Amazingly passionate and heart breaking..

And oh baby let's not forget....

Atmosphere (once again the live in Los Angelos Version..same album)

Words cannot even describe what happens at minute 4:30 of this video. I never get tired of that part. It touches my soul. This is my all time favorite few minutes of music.... (this says volumes because I love all music) It's like the expression of a great opportunity never to be realized but always to be mourned for.....It's a beautiful expression of love.

There are many other Johnny songs that I love passionately but this post would be way too long if I listed them all....

I think I'm going to listen to that part again....

Until next time.....

-Seacrest Out

p.s. If you're bored check out "Edge of Desire" from his Battle Studies album...... (sigh)

That guitar and I are meant for each other...

Time Out For Women 2012

I had an amazing opportunity to go to the Time Out For Women conference this weekend in Richfield, Utah! It was the most wonderful and inspiring thing I have done in a long time. How grateful I feel to have had the opportunity to hear the testimonies of some of the most remarkable women in the world.

I feel like my testimony has been strengthened and that I have been uplifted as a person. I hope that I can somehow be able to hang on to the things that I learned and the feelings I felt. I hope that I can use these things to become a better wife and mother. And I hope I can make going to TOFW a yearly tradition with people I love.

On the funny side, I loved getting to know Jessica and Lauren, eating monstrously large burritos, staying up until 1:00 a.m. talking about night noises and other hilarious things (that shall not be mentioned heretofore), and scraping the "burnt" off of sandwiches. (even if they did have a sinister and secretive plan to take an ugly picture of me for some other chicks from Nephi; with whom I will have revenge upon in the VERY near future!! ;-))

I also ran into one of my most favorite and loved people in the world: my sister Darla Wilson!  She was there with all of her cute sisters! It only took us about 2 minutes of talking to start crying! I love her!

Coming away from this weekend, I am grateful for new friends, a stronger testimony, and to quote speaker Mariama Kallon : "I am grateful for bossoms!" And all of this, in spite of the fact,  I am probably, according to speaker DeAnne Flynn, a "Window Licker"! :-)

Thanks for the inspiration...

I just read an entirely inspired blog post. It truly touched my heart. It is was one of those posts that I would say was a "tender mercy". I am so grateful for the people in my life that continue to inspire me day after day. I'm lucky. I believe Heavenly Father sends certain people into our lives for a reason. I don't just believe it. I know it's true. It's proven to after day.
There are things that I want to do.......that I'm not doing. Major things...that I want deeply. There are choices in my life that I regret. Desperately at times....... But I know that, if I stay close to the spirit and believe that Heavenly Father is there to guide me, I can do it. And that someday I can realize the desires of my heart. Even if the path there is hard...whatever that path may be.
I got this.

Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved. -Helen Keller

But.....first....give me some ease and quiet...... PreTty PLeaSe????
