baked round 1:
lately i have been in a baking sort of mood. i have this uncontrollable desire to create the most delicious high carb, high sugar, high fat comfort food you can ever imagine. So i recruited my partner in crime to sacrifice his whole evening off the making miniature soft pretzels with me. i am not even exaggerating it took ALL evening!! but it was totally worth it!kneading... pouching...heart shaped pretzel... cause we are adorable like thatpreparing for salt...salting.....as i have mentioned before c. is somewhat of a perfectionist (which i love about him) and insisted the salt be perfectly even....this is the finished product!! seriously they were so tasty ! i have probably eaten like 20 mini pretzels! this is us while slaving away in the kitchen-don't we look lovely-
i found the recipe here so if you are bored and have 5 hours to spare.

Baked round 2:
c. and i have been dating for a long time and after seeing each other everyday for a few years now, things can become some what routine. so in an effort to revamp our daily adventures we started cooking dinner with each other or baking something fun a few times a week (see above pretzel story)
so one day last week we made home made pizza.
hand rolled dough...pepperoni...canadian bacon....and olives.... pizza heaven!
this recipe also takes forever! but also worth it :)

Whats My Age Again?

I had a most pleasant weekend- but i must say the highlight of the weekend came in the late evening sunday during the grammy's-
One of my all time favorite bands are geting back together! the one and only Blink-182! the wonderful c. introduced me to this kickin' music back in the 7th grade! Most of my important moments of my teenage years have Blink playing in the background.
Mark-Tom-& Travis confirmed on their website-
Hi. We're blink-182.This past week there've been a lot of questions about the current status of the band, and we wanted you to hear it straight from us. To put it simply, We're back. We mean, really back. Picking up where we left off and then some. In the studio writing and recording a new album. Preparing to tour the world yet again. Friendships reformed. 17 years deep in our legacy.
Summer 2009.
Thanks and get ready…

Happy (belated) Birthday To Two Very Talented Girls!

Happy Birthday to my wonderful mom! She turned 29(again)! My mom is one of a kind! She has taught me the value of hard work and commitment. She truly is a superwoman. Her talents are over flowing and she always so willing to help and share what she has been blessed with. At one point she was balancing planning my sisters wedding,3 kids under 18(2 without drivers licenses), being a vice president of Intermountain Health Care, Primary President, Wife, and getting a masters degree at BYU(which she graduated one of the top in her class). What did i tell you amazing right?!

So Happy (belated) Birthday Mom! And Thank You for all that you do, i know you don't hear it enough.

Happy 15th Birthday Samantha Jane! My baby sissy is getting so old! I can not believe how time flies by! I remember the day she was born and the first time i held her. She has always been such a beautiful girl! Where do i even begin to talk about a person who possesses so many incredible talents? Sami is a ballerina. A VERY incredibly talented one at that. Last year she was accepted to one of the most prestigious dance schools in the country (only 30 kids in the country get in) she attends the Ballet West dance school, and is on Albion Advanced dance. Not only is she an incredible dancer but also an awesome student she was in tears for days after receiving an A- in a class. One of the greatest qualities about Sami is how angelic she is. She is truly one of the most innocent and most sincere people i have ever met. So happy birthday Samantha Jane-i could not have asked for a better baby sister!
