The bear eating some sort of popcicle... Basically he cooled himself off by rubbing on it and then ate it!

Flower... edited.

The owl winking, I even caught it mid-wink.


Thanks for visiting :)


"This is the Place"

On the way home


Robert told me Friday that he planned to go to the zoo the next day after my class.
I was so excited, but still thought it might not work since we tried SOOOO many times to go with Jessica and the boys.
But it happened! After my History class, we got ready we headed out.
Of course we had to stop and get gas first AND fill up our tummies with Del Taco.

On the way up there we got stuck in horrible traffic. Turns out there was a huge Walmart truck on its side... a SUV lost control of their car and ran into him.

After a long ride up we finally made it!

It was probably the funnest thing ever!
I loved spending the day with him and seeing all the cute animals.

A lot of them had babies but they couldn't be out..
Like the elephant and tiger.

On the way home we stopped at This is the Place park. We looked at the monuments to see what it was all about and then headed home.

To avoid the traffic of the crash we went over South Mountain. It was my first time up there and it was a beautiful view.

It was a wonderful day and I loved it!


Fall Semester

Right now I am a little overwhelmed. Classes start today for the fall semester.
I am taking English and Health online, so I went to see what all I will be needing to do for the classes.
Everyone I've talked to with online classes basically had a self-pace class.
No no no no no.

There will be quizzes and tests every week... as well as projects.

Plus tomorrow I'll have my ASL class to add to it AND History on Saturday.

What have I gotten myself into.

You probably won't hear from me for a long long long LOOOOOOOOOOOOONG time.


Make-A-Cake foundation

The cake cooking in the oven:

Just starting the sugar candy:


Fondant rolled out:

First teir frosted:

First teir covered, and top teir frosted:

Whole cake covered:

Final result:

((So there was a bunch of powered sugar in front of me and I was playing with it and it was making lines.... so then we decided to take a pretend picture. I don't know how any one could snort anything.... I would hate that))

Today after work, I headed over to Amber's house to help make a cake for her mom, Leah, since her birthday is tomorrow!

First we went shopping at Albertson's and bought all the stuff, then mixed the cake batter and started it in the oven.

After, we attempted to make these cool tiles out of sugar that I saw on the Food Network Challenge.

To put it simply, they were like jell-o.
So we stretched them instead.

We even covered it with fondant and it was quite the disaster.

With all the sugar pulled over it, it looked better though. maybe next time it'll be even better!

very good day

Its finally here!
I started work today :)

I abso freaking dang lutely cannot wait to see the kids tomorrow.

Probably will be the best day of my life so far



I would like to announce to the world right now that I got 100% on my final...
AND I was ranked number one out of my whole class

That's right, I'm officially a genius

(Side Note:
I was wrong, I start work on Wednesday.
But that's only a couple days away!)


you'll never guess

Only 3 days until I'm all done with summer classes.... (or class)

But even better....

Work starts on next tuesday. That is a week from tomorrow.
That is 8 days.

I'm so excited I cannot contain myself


Rearrange: Room edition

Yesterday I spent a total of 3 hours cleaning, organizing, and rearranging my bedroom.

It really has so much more room now it seems... even though its probably the same.
Hopefully it'll be easier to keep up with too.


(P.S. The stupid thing keeps making dumb boxes and stretches the pictures.)



So, I downloaded this new thing from google... and I love it.

I was experimenting... and playing around
So I made a blog about me and Robert!


More pictures to come:)

Chuck E. Cheese!

On Friday Jessica asked me if I wanted to go to Chuck E Cheese with her and the boys.

It was a lot of fun and we got almost 300 tickets!

Caden is probably pro at all the games.

:) They're so cute.. right?
