First Dibs on Old Bedroom Set

This was my old bedroom set that has been wrapped in plastic and sitting in our basement since we moved here 4 years ago. :) I was planning to post it on KSL but thought I'd post it here for a day to give anyone in the neighborhood first dibs. It has 2 nightstands, a dresser, another dresser with a vanity, and complete queen size poster bed frame. I have a boxspring but not a mattress for it. We had an olympic queen mattress on it which fit fine. (The bedding is not my bedding of choice, but I wanted to show what the bed frame looked like. :) ) If anyone is interested in buying it let me know and we'll come up with a fair price. Thanks friends!

Stephanie Nielson, author of the NieNie Dialogues, is coming to BYU on Thursday!

NieNie Is Coming! Yep. Stephanie Nielson. And You’re Invited.

You heard right! Stephanie Nielson, author of the NieNie Dialogues, is coming to BYU!

11 x 17 Stephanie NielsonSo mark your calendar for Thursday, September 30th at 7:00 pm. The event will be in the Wilkinson Center Ballroom.

Stephanie is helping us kick off a new campaign here at Women’s Services called Recapturing Beauty.

Through experiences with hundreds of women in our professional and personal lives, we couldn’t help but notice that every single woman we knew had something negative to say about her appearance. What a shame! We are literal children of God. How can we have so many harsh things to say about the incredible bodies we have each been given? How can we reject these magnificent gifts with our nipping, tucking, molding, and controlling?

To combat the fallacies surrounding beauty, Women’s Services presents a series of events and support groups to help women live lives of greater fulfillment, at peace with their appearances.

Recapturing Beauty is a campaign to reshape our ideas and attitudes about beauty away from those promoted in our popular culture. The definition of beauty has been hijacked by a group of people and industries who have in mind profit more than beauty. We are sold ideas of beauty that are very hard to attain unless, of course, we have enough money.

When we make beauty exclusive and difficult to attain, it sets up a culture of self-loathing, competition and envy. None of these reflect the true nature of women.

Instead of embarking on more meaningful quests, we place our faith in products and images. Rather than loving our bodies and being peaceful, respectful and gentle with them we attack, manipulate and try to control them, never feeling satisfied.

Recapturing Beauty is about reclaiming the truth about beauty so that we can find peace and contentment in our bodies and in our lives.

Stephanie Nielson will speak about her experiences and how each of us can find beauty in ourselves.

The event is open to the public! Community members, men, women, students, spouses of students, people who have never heard of BYU—all welcome!! There is no need to register; just be at the Wilkinson Center Ballroom on BYU Campus on Thursday, September 30th at 7:00 pm!

Hallmark Family Tree- for sale

I have a Hallmark family tree, new in the box. I paid $40 for it (still have reciept). It's a metal tree that is meant to hang small ornamental frames with family photos in them. Its 23" wide and 22" tall. It can be hung on a wall or be free standing. It would make a great mother-in-law gift. I bought it for that reason and then another family member gave her one and now its been too long to return it. I also have several frames to go with it (11 to be exact, also new in the box). I paid about $45 total for all the frames. I am selling the tree and frames together for $40. So you are basically getting all the frames for free. If anyone is interested let me know. markreich@digis.net
