Mini Ice Cream Sandwiches and Giant Pizza Slabs

Two Random Things: 1. Last week I brought in some Famous Amos mini cookies for me and my coworkers.  My boss Wendy remembered we had leftover ice cream from Goodwood (which happens to be the best vanilla bean ice cream ever).  So we combined the two things and made mini ice cream sandwiches.  Fun and […]

1 month down, Infinity to go

Well, today we have been married for one month.  That obviously makes me an expert on marriage.  So here are some things I have learned: I will not allow my children to play video games with guns.  Explanation: T.J.’s cousin has her PS2 and games at our house still and so T.J. is currently trying […]

Glee is NOT High School Musical.

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=055pyHT_XNM&hl=en_US&fs=1&] One of my favorite shows is Glee.  I bought the last two soundtracks this weekend and have listened to it nonstop.  So I have got to share this video with you because all three songs are incredible!  Enjoy!

Good Grief!

A few weeks ago I lost my external hard drive en route from SDF to SLC.  It put me in a depression for a couple of days.  Let me list just some of the things that were on the 100 GBs: 1.  All of my photos from 7th grade-junior year of college 2. All of […]

Our Beatboxing Car

So T.J. and I have a car, well a piece of metal that makes a lot of strange sounds and sometimes manages to get over 55 mph.  It’s a little green escort from the 90s that keeps fighting for life.  We honestly don’t know how it keeps going.  Sometimes when we go up a big […]

I’m so glad when Daddy comes home

When I was a little girl, my dad loved it when I sang him this song: “I’m so glad when Daddy comes home, glad as I can be, Clap my hands and jump for joy, and climb upon his knee, Put my arms around his neck, hug him tight like this, Pat his cheeks and […]

From Roommate to Housewife

Before I was married, I rarely cooked.  It wasn’t that I don’t know how, it was just because I didn’t have time and my apartment’s kitchen was too small for six girls.  But now that I have the space and a little more time, plus we need to save money, I’ve started making three new […]

Mom knows best

Today while T.J. and I were at lunch, my mom called to say hi and then talked to T.J. about his birthday.  She gave him words of advice saying, number each day and be grateful for everything you have. I don’t know why, but lately I’ve been quite a pessimist.  I think it’s just because […]

It doesn’t feel like summer.

Summer usually consists of going home to Kentucky, eating an enormous amount of snow cones, vacationing in Florida, getting as tan as possible, and sleeping in.  My brother always gave me a hard time because he thought I was lazy, but I liked to call it relaxing. I believed that I deserved it since I […]

“Why did you get married now?”

At my reception, I had a lot of high school friends and other non-LDS friends/family attend.  Outside of BYU, clearly it is not normal to get married while you still are in school and are just 21 years old. So, I kept getting asked, “Why did you get married now?” Other than the fact that […]
