Definition of a Muumuu

I was asked, "What's a muumuu?" by an old friend. Of course he's male, so I suppose he really may not know. In case any of you are wondering here it is: according to Wikipedia: The muumuu or muʻumuʻu (English pronunciation: /ˈmuːmuː/) is a loose dress of Hawaiian origin that hangs from the shoulder. Like the Aloha shirt, muumuu exports are often brilliantly colored with floral patterns of generic Polynesian motifs. Muumuu for local Hawaiian residents are more subdued in tone. Muumuu are not as widely worn at work as the aloha shirt, but may be worn as a uniform by women working in the hotel industry. Muumuu are also popular as maternity gowns and with obese people because they do not restrict the waist.
I'll try to forget that last line of the definition..even if it it true. If you haven't tried a muumuu yet, you should. It's the only way to survive the humid months of July and August when the swamp cooler doesn't quite cut it. There are those who think they are only for the "older" or "larger" women, however, I've found them to be quite comfortable at any age, size, or stage of life! Caution: They are, however, meant for females only!

Congratulations to Trent

Trent received his mission call today to Raleigh, North Carolina!

It was so exciting to watch him open the letter from the First Presidency. His parents had just dropped some things off at the school and went to the post office across the street. They came back immediately and called him over from work. He was going to wait to read it to everyone at a BBQ this evening, but within 5 minutes, his boss had sent him over to read it. There were several of us gathered in my classroom to find out where he's going. Word travels very quickly with cell phones! Within a half hour after that, I went to the Panaca Merc where there was buzzing all around with excitement for him! Just one of the many perks of living in a small town!

Happy Birthday, Whitney

Today is Whitney's 19th birthday. We made the traditional BLTs the night before since that is what I craved at 3:00am 19 yrs ago when Evan lovingly got up and made me one! (Now he would just keep on snoring!)

Anyway, we all went to eat at Pizza Factory for lunch. The host served her a personal pizza in the shape of a one and a nine! She was sad they didn't sing for her, but threatened me if I did! What the heck? She's going to Vegas to see Lion King with her work friends tomorrow. Happy Birthday E-E! WE LOVE YOU!!

Whitney and Trent at Lake Powell before he leaves on his mission to . . .TBA!

Headed for Lake Powell

Whew! I can check "update blog" off my list of things to do before vacation! I had started a few posts, but didn't get them completed until today! It has been a busy couple of weeks as summers usually are but in a good, relaxing way mostly. We also had the annual Schimbeck Reunion last weekend over the 4th of July, but my camera wasn't working, so I'll have to get pics from the sis-in-laws after Lake Powell!

Must haves for Lake Powell:

1. Sunscreen, aloe vera, and lip protection
2. Plenty of water & ice
3. Shade Tent
4. Plenty of food & snacks
5. Reading material and lounge chair
6. Life jackets
7. Boat, kayak, jet skiis, or other water toys
8. Flip flops, hat, sunglasses
9. Money, Husband and kids, friends, extended family, etc.
10. Oh. . . and a swimsuit for daylight hours! LOL

Thanks for reading my blog and's like getting a letter in the mail instead of bills!
