lemon sweets

You know you're in trouble when,
 a recipe calls for an entire can of sweetened condensed milk.

I had to take a "pinterest break" while I was doing my homework today and I couldn't resist these sweet lemon treats... my ten minute "pinterest break" turned into a 45 minute "baking break." 

^I used this yummy recipe I found here^ 

^but there was also a 5 ingredient, short-cut recipe here^

Speaking of sweets... I'm sure missing my sweetie.

Yesterday Jordan finally got unexpectedly transferred to Agua Prieta, Sonora. His first time being transferred in Mexico! After six months in Nogales I know he developed some very special relationships with his investigators and the members, so he's both sad and very excited for the change. He loves being a missionary, and tells me every single week! The Church is true people! Love his guts and i'm so dang proud of him every single day.

And speaking of missions... my best friend Madi Kramer left for her 18 month journey this morning! She will be serving in Tacloban, Philippines. It was definitely a bitter sweet goodbye. I couldn't be more grateful for the amazing examples I have in my life!

all the time


Bohme gets in a new shipment of jewelry while i'm working.

and sometimes

im a little obsessed with jewelry
 and EVEN though i've already spent my strict $30 budget on clothes for the month... 
(that I gave myself due to money-spending issues) 


I make exceptions.


and sometimes...

I find AWESOME websites that have the best deals ever!

I was planning on keeping this to myself but I figured... I might as well share the love.

I do have to warn you, the shipping and handling adds up quite a bit. But considering the deal you get on the products, its sometimes worth it. 

Also, it's sort of a hit-and-miss type of store with finding cute stuff,
 and it took longer for them to arrive then they said it would! 
But regardless, here are the treasures I found:  

And my favorite, this little gem.
I had been looking for a watch-locket for ever! 
(that was reasonably priced)

I get to meet movie-stars when I go to Park City during the Sundance film festivals!
^Miles Teller^
He played 'Willard' off the new FootLoose!
And actually ALL the time, my friends look so pretty!

My little sister ditches me for a week to go to New York.

I blog when I'm suppose to be doing my homework.

Home Sweet Home

Hasta La Vista Aggies!

You're looking at 
Weber State Universities'
 newest Wild Cat!

After a long process of battling between my options, a lot of prayer, and so many different opinions, I finally came to the conclusion that moving back to my home sweet home was the best choice for me! Never in a million years would I have pegged myself as the girl who moved home after only semester. I was set that Logan was going to be my home for the next four years. But, life happens and as unexpected as my decision was, I am happy with it! I don't regret moving up to Logan for that one semester. In those five short months I learned a whole about myself! Through meeting so many new people and having a ton of new experiences, I was able to better discovered the type of person that I want to strive to become each day! Even though I already knew it, I was reminded of the things that I really do value. And the steps I have to take to hold on to those things! I guess over all I found out i'm a pretty big family girl. If I have the option then why not surround myself with the people who really do love me for me and who have my best interest at heart? The people who I know I can always trust, and who will always have my back, who actually want me to be a better person as much as I want myself to be? I'm pretty lucky they all agreed to let me move back home with them :) But everything happens for a reason and I'm honestly glad I had the experience of being an Aggie, it was blast! So hopefully one full semester of strict playing will hold me over for a while. Cause this girl needs to buckle down! I have both a praxis test, and an interview coming up soon to apply for the El Ed program at Weber. I have a full schedule of credits, and i'm back working at Bohme! Plus with a missionary on my hands, i'm a pretty busy girl! My New Years Resolutions were definitely along the lines of save save save money and study study study my bum off! 

In honor of living at home again I decided to re-do my bathroom.
So this was my project over Christmas Break...



Still missing a few finishing touches, but I love the colors!
