and thought I would share.

Love it!

Two things I love about this video
  1. Glee is back, and still amazing!!!
  2. Some of the lyrics are very fitting for me right now

Today my sister Amanda found out the sex of her baby...







Twin Girls!!!

She was measuring big so her doctor moved the ultrasound up
to see if she was father along then they thought or to see if it was twins.
And she was right!

I am so excited.
I think Amanda is just freaking out.
But that is expected right?

They will be adorable!

I did it!

I made a goal to cook every day while my parents were gone.
And even though one night I technically baked instead of cooking
I did it!

My parents will be home tonight
and so I am very proud of myself!

Tonight I made homemade pasta!

If you know me you know I love pasta,
and homemade is even better!

I used a recipe from Pioneer Woman
and it was really easy.

I love her blog, her photography and her recipe's.

If you are ever out of ideas on what to cook,
go to her website, she has some awesome recipe's!

Oh and the pasta was delicious!

So tonight instead of cooking
I had leftovers.

Then I made me this!

Candy Apple Dessert Squares!

I found the recipe in an old cookbook
and it sounded so good!
I went to the store and bought every ingredient for them!

They may look kind of odd
but OH MAN are they good!!!

(yes that piece missing is from me, I had to taste them!)

Just thought I would share!

They are brownies
covered in a cream cheese and caramel topping
with apple pieces and
recces peanut butter cup pieces
crumbled over the top
then drizzled with caramel!

3 nights in a row!

You all might not care about what I eat,
but I am really proud of myself!

Three nights in a row I have made dinner for myself!

Normally when I am home alone I am hitting up
ever fast food place in town.

This week, I haven't been to one!

Go me!

2 nights in a row!

I made dinner again tonight!
I forgot to take a picture
but it was delicious!

I made a Chicken and Rice casserole,
simple, easy and yummy!
Plus we had all of the ingredients already at my house!

This whole cooking thing is much better for the wallet.
Maybe I can buy a new pair of shoes with what I save...

ha ha! Just teasing!

I am a chef!

Or learning to be one.

I have always been big on baking.
Cookies, cakes, bars... that sort of thing.
But cooking was another story.

I can make pasta, and simple easy things
that help keep someone alive at college.
But homemade items,
not the stuff from a box,
I have never been that great at.

So my mom and I have decided that needs to change.
See my mom is an awesome cook.
She can just throw random things together
and they always turn out so yummy!

This past weekend she taught me how to make a pie crust
(yes this is baking and not cooking but she is a pro at them)
and I must say, it turned out really well!

Well today my parents left to California for a few days,
but I decided that I was still going to cook
and not resort to going to a fast food place for dinner.

So I made Pizza, from SCRATCH!!!
I was pretty proud of myself.
I had never made the dough by myself before
so I was really nervous on how it was going to turn out.

But after checking on it a few times
I think it turned out really well!

I made the sauce as well.
Go me!

(sorry for the weird angle, it happens when I have to use the timer on my camera)

And touchdown on finally cooking for myself!

Loving this song today.
A little old
but so, so, so good!

Right now I am waiting for a certain someone to come pick me up.
We are going to my cabin.
We as in me and him,
plus my parents, Jessica's family, Amanda's family and Keldon's family.

Besides the fact that everyone is going to be there,
we are staying overnight.

Wish me luck!

I ran away...

A few weeks ago I ran away.

Ok so technically I drove.
And I only left for about 2 hours.
But I left the house because well...

Sometimes I need me time.
But when you live with family
(and during this time it was lots of family)
you don't get me time that often.

So I ran away and decided to remember
why I love where I live again.

Here are some pictures from my night.

Hope you enjoy!

I have a lot more,
but these were some of my favorites!
