Enchanted - That's How You Know

This has to be one of my favorite parts of the movie! I love it when Prince Edward jumps off the bridge and gets run over by bicyclists. :-)

Enchanted - Happy Working Song

I absolutely LOVE this movie and can't wait until it comes out on DVD to watch it over and over! I think it's one of my favorite movies.

Our Kitty

Here are a few recent pictures of our kitty, named Callie. I thought that name fit her well because she's a calico. :-) She's funny ....

She likes to be in our window sill, sometimes looking out the window or sleeping. Our condo is on the 2nd floor, so it's fun when we're outside and we look up at her when she's in the window sill.

Another thing she likes to do is play with our DVD/VCR player. We'd pop in and out the DVD tray and she tries to play with it. We don't do it a whole lot because we don't want to wear the player out, but it's just so funny.

My American Accent

Seeing as how I grew up in Missouri, these results are pretty accurate. Although I'm not so sure that I have a good voice for TV and radio. Maybe I should be a radio deejay or an actress..... nah.

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Midland

"You have a Midland accent" is just another way of saying "you don't have an accent." You probably are from the Midland (Pennsylvania, southern Ohio, southern Indiana, southern Illinois, and Missouri) but then for all we know you could be from Florida or Charleston or one of those big southern cities like Atlanta or Dallas. You have a good voice for TV and radio.

North Central
The Inland North
The South

5 years ago today ....

5 years ago today (Jan. 20, 2003), I started my job at Backstage Library Works. It was called MarcLink when I started, but the name was changed near the end of 2003. I started out working in Orem (just east of the University Mall... within walking distance so my sisters and I had lunch there about once a month). Then in April of last year, we moved to a building in south Provo. It has been an awesome job for me and I'm sure the management at Backstage really appreciate me there. Here's proof that they appreciate me. :-) Below are some pictures of awards I've received ....

2003 ....

2004 .... (I tried to take a couple pictures of this to see if it would turn out good... it's sorta like a rock that you can see into with the writing... it says Backstage, Vicki Higginson, Top 5 DT, 2004)

2005.... (Our kitty is so funny and likes to see what I'm doing sometimes, so I had to get her in this next picture... and then there's a picture without her)

2006 ....
2007 ....
I didn't really get an award I could take a picture of like the ones above, but there were still top 5 awards and those who were awarded got a Backstage Christmas card and a $25 gift card to the mall in south Provo (the place I work is also in south Provo). I would've taken a picture of that, but I can't find it at the moment. ;-) I need to find it so I can use it.
Anyway, so 5 years at my job... doesn't quite seem like I've been there that long, but it's been a good job.

Honeymoon at Disneyland - Mar. 6-11, 2006

I don't really have a lot of recent pictures, so I'll post some of my favorites from our honeymoon at Disneyland from almost 2 years ago. This first one is one of my favorites ....

This is me and Jeff on the teacup ride ....

And finally, this is us at the Pacific Ocean... we rented a car for half a day and went to a beach along the Pacific Ocean ....

It was my first time ever going to Disneyland and the Pacific Ocean and I had so much fun that I REALLY want to go back (as soon as our finances will let us).
This was also my first time posting pictures, so it took a little while to figure out and hopefully I can get better at it.
