Current Events

Wow, sorry for the hiatus, guys. We went on our tour to Nauvoo, lost our camera charger, can't get those photos loaded since the camera died and then all the pics we took on Jer's iphone won't load because my computer hates me for some reason.

Luckily, we are having a really fun week here in O-town (Orem). For some reason our week filled up REALLY fast which was really fun because we are getting to see all of our friends and family.

Monday: Grocery day! Especially after a 2-week tour where we don't get to choose what we eat, I was very excited to hit Costco and get some serious produce! This was just the beginnings of my fruit and veggie craze.
Monday Evening: We went to the Thornock's house to watch Bachelorette (of course) along with our friends Jared and Amy, Kenzie, and Ashley and Jared. (Yes there were to Jared and a Jer there. Totally confusing, haha.) We're going to miss the Thornocks this summer but are glad they will be back in the fall!
 Tuesday: I'm kicking myself for not getting any pictures at this wondrous event but we had a BBQ with the Bready's and the Chris and Alison's. This was such a blessed reunion and some seriously awesome food. The above picture is the dessert I made. Totally healthy (NOT) although Court did say they were one of her favorite desserts I've ever made (and she's tried a lot of my experiments, bless her.) This one came from Pinterest. As my mom would say, "I'm a purist." So next time, I don't think I will use Reeses, just plain old Hershey's chocolate. Go check out my pinterest for the recipe.
 Wednesday: A little out of order but in the evening we went to the Strawberry days rodeo with Bryan and Sally and their little one, Bennett. He is such a handsome little man. They had these TDF cups of fresh strawberries with a sweetened condensed milk-type cream on top. Sooooo good.
 The whole group! We love Sally and Bry and will miss them when they move to Philly at the end of the summer :o(.

Wednesday Morning: My family came into town this week for Katie's play (which we are going to see tonight) she is one of the wives in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat in Murray. After I got done teaching, Jer and I did a double date with Katie and Dave. We made yummy breakfast at our place which included GF pancakes with Magleby's syrup, Jer's special eggs, hash browns in the waffle iron (thanks Pinterest!), fresh fruit, and sausage links! After breakfast, Anna came over and Jer left for work, and the four of us hiked the Y. After our hike, of course, Anna, Mom and I went shopping. :o)

We are looking forward to the rest of the week. Pictures to come of Katie's show, Lauren's show, Becca's recital, 7 peaks, etc! Also some killer recipes.

Just try this for me, we made them last night and Jer said, "That sandwich changed my life." haha:
BLTA with a fried egg. It's that simple. Do it.

I had mine open-faced (One piece of whole wheat bread), no mayo and it was perfect!
