My friend Mandy and I have developed a weekly tradition. Every Monday, we email each other "10 Key Points" about our lives. It has seriously become my FAVORITE thing! We both have such crazy lives that we don't always get the chance to catch up, but I always know that come Monday (or sometimes Tuesday...or Wednesday...) I will get a brief summary of Mandy's life. You would be surprised how much you can cover in 10 sentences!

So I'm working my way back into the world of blogging. With ten.

1. I LOVE my job! As I may have previously mentioned, I am now working in the Intensive Care Unit at the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Edmonton. It is so great...I don't think I'll ever go back to working on the floors. AND, I did CPR for the first time ever the other day. Let me tell you, it is exhausting! But seriously, greatest job ever.

2. I live in a great house, with great girls. I owe my parents big time for coming to Edmonton and helping me paint my dungeon of a room...but we turned it into this beauty!

3. I love love love being back in Edmonton. It has also made me realize how much I love my great fam jam though. We got family pics taken by the wonderful David Guenther of Rowan Jane Photography.. Here's a few faves:
Naturally, Max and I become a couple...
4. The day we got family pics done was also the same day we found out Jessica is pregnant! Customized Jones Soda bottles...fooled us all!
5. Elder Erickson is now 2 weeks in the MTC and doing great! He's the Zone leader in the Preston, England MTC and will be off to Leeds in a week! I was lucky enough to get a handshake from him before he left!

6. We also got some pretty sweet snowboarding in before he left (thank you Max for inspiring me to buy a new snowboard, coat, and goggles...)
7. This is LONG overdue, but I found some gems from Nick's 1st birthday in September. Zac and Hil, you can move to Edmonton ANYTIME you know!
Nick's Birthday
8. Summer is just around the corner! Which makes me excited to reunite with my sweet Wesley again
9. There will be PLENTY of Waterton trips. Like this lovely girls day:
10. Did I mention I LOVE Alberta?

Oh it's good to be back!


  1. ummm so I LOVE your headboard/bed.... it is so adorable, where did you get your bedding?

  2. I like this whole 10 idea thing. It's great. Glad you are doing well!

  3.'s from Anthro! I seriously admired it for like a year before I broke down and bought it.

  4. I love this post. I feel like i'm updated in the life of Amy now. You know, you can always forward those "Top Ten's to Mandy" to me, any time! :)
    P.S You and Max make a cute couple! hehe
