The Family

Well, the time has finally come....I am now officially old! I always thought the day Greg would leave on a mission I would be soooooo old! That day is here! Greg was called to the Guatemala to serve a mission for our church! I am a proud older sister for his decision to sacrifice 2 years of his life to serve our Lord. Not too much longer Cole will be making the same decision. WOW! Its amazing faith these young boys have to have! Before I start tearing up too much writing this....the family decided to spend a weekend before Greg left together up at the Zermatt Resort in Midway. We had such a great time just being all together laughing and sharing fun memories. That Sunday we came home and were able to have my amazingly talented cousin Lauren do our family pictures. We had a lot of fun doing this photo shoot! As you will see, we are just a bunch of goof balls! The thing I like the most is you can see the love that my family shares for one another! I am so blessed to be apart of this family! I will miss Greg, but I know he is where he is suppose to be right now.

I was having technical difficulties for a few months there, but after my mad tech skills I was finally able to fix it! It only took 5 months! Glad to be back! I have a lot to catch up on.

SeXy By SuMmEr

Summer is just around the corner!!! YAY! Im so excited =D this winter has dragged on way to long. I wonder why I live in Utah each winter. One of these days I am going to up and move to a place where the weather is warm all year round.

With that being said, I need to get my butt in shape! I have gotten out of my routin a little this winter so I have to hit it hard. I have some major goals that I want to get to by the end of the summer. I am starting the p90x challenge but will also be doing some more to go along with it to make sure I hit these goals.

Blondes have more fun?

So, its true. I went back to blonde. One Monday I thought that it would be fun to go back to my roots, so I made a phone call and went in that night. Lets just say when I make a decision I go for it. I have to admit that I think I like the brown better, but this is fun for the summer. I wasn't expecting to go this blonde this fast, I was expecting it to take awhile to get back to this color. So you can decide what you like better.

Valentine's Day!

Great movie to see this Valentine's Day

Valentine Chex® Mix

9 cups Rice Chex® cereal

1 cup white vanilla baking chips

1/2 cup peanut butter

1/4 cup butter or margarine

3/4 cup powdered sugar

1/2 cup red, white and pink candy-coated chocolate candies

1/4 cup red or pink jimmies sprinkles

1. In large bowl, place cereal. In small microwavable bowl, microwave baking chips, peanut butter and butter uncovered on High 1 minute to 1 minute 30 seconds, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted and smooth. Pour peanut butter mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated.

2. Place 1/2 of the cereal mixture in 1-gallon food-storage plastic bag. Add powdered sugar. Seal bag; shake until well coated. Spread on waxed paper or foil to cool, about 15 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, stir candies and sprinkles into remaining cereal mixture. Spread on waxed paper or foil to cool, about 15 minutes.

4. In serving bowl, mix both cereal mixtures. Store in airtight container.

Red Velvet Pancakes

1/2 of an 18.25 oz box Duncan Hines Moist Deluxe Red Velvet cake mix (about 2 cups lightly filled)

2 large eggs, beaten (see Cook's Note)

2 Tbsp oil 1/4 cup + 1 tsp water 3 Tbsp butter

Whipped cream (optional)

Powdered sugar (optional)

Combine the cake mix, eggs, oil and water in a mixing bowl until just thoroughly blended (don't overmix). If batter seems too thick, add another tablespoon of water. Cook the pancakes in a non-stick pan over medium heat. You want to cook these a little slower than regular pancakes because you don't want them to brown too much. Keep them warm in a low oven.

When ready to serve decorate with whipped cream or powdered sugar, if desired.

Makes about 8 pancakes (about 5 inches across)

Cook's Note: To make these (or any pancakes) lighter, separate the yolks and whites. Combine the beaten yolks with the other batter ingredients; beat the whites to soft peaks and gently fold them into the batter.

My Redecorating Project

Ok, so I have lived in my house for 2 years now and for those of you who know me, know I love to decorate. So I have decided its time for an upgrade. Not only will I be redecorating my room and bathroom, I am also finally going to be finishing my basement!!!! I have few ideas in mind.

I am thinking I want to do the basement an old vintage Hollywood. With blues, whites and oranges.

My room is the other half of the project which I am thinking of doing yellow, whites and blacks.
