I was overwhelmed with the horrible stench of B.O. that filled the air as I entered the testing center today. People need to remember to take showers during finals week. It was horrible. Not only did it smell so bad that I thought I was going to pass out from suffication, the ventilation system wasn't working. I had to sit down and endure the hot, stuffy, smelly, room as I took my 100 question multiple choice test. On top of that this kid next to me kept staring at me. He wasn't like checking me out or anything, he was just comtemplating. It kept distracting me though. Anywho, I ended up doing well. Not as well as my last test. Under better circumstances, I GOT A 100% ON MY LAST FINAL. I was pretty stoaked.

Some cooking secrets:
We always like trying new things. Tonight my husband made dinner and I made dessert. He made chicken fettucini with brown sugared carrots. He seasoned the chicken with garlic salt and zesty italian dressing and it was REALLY good. I decided to make creeme cheese brownies and they were amazing. Make your brownies how you like them and then make this cream cheese layer :o)

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 (16 ounce) container prepared chocolate frosting
In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese, butter and cornstarch until fluffy. Gradually beat in sweetened condensed milk, egg and vanilla until smooth. Pour cream cheese mixture evenly over brownie batter. Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until top is lightly browned. Allow to cool, spread with frosting, and cut into bars. Store covered in refrigerator, or freeze in a single layer for up to 2 weeks.

I can't believe that as soon as this semester ends, the next one begins. BYU never gives you any breaks!! I start spring term on the 28th (the tuesday after finals week) I decided I am not going to summer term (I need a break from school and time to visit CA). Adam and I will still graduate in December. We walk in August though. How silly is that?

Some side notes...


I just love the classic style vans. I have two pairs: brown ones and all black ones. I want to get some fun colored ones. I want a blue pair and maybe a purple. I am not a fan of the blue vans in the picture, I want a different color blue. Its great that they have so many different colors. These shoes are comfortable and perfect for my narrow feet.

I also LOVE and can't live without:

Hemptz lip balm

This is the only thing that protects my lips during winter season. Its so dry up here in Utah and this works like magic for me. Regular chapstick just doesn't cut it.

Last Weekend

We were able to go snowboarding :)

Here I am wearing a jacket way too large for my little frame. Outdoors unlimited over at BYU didn't have any small jackets available, or girl jackets for that matter.

LOL I look like a little boy here!!!

I wouldn't recommend renting boards from BYU. I had trouble carrying my board because it was so dang heavy, and the bindings were super ghetto. I am thinking thats what made the board so heavy. We would have gone somewhere else to rent if we hadn't waited till the last minute. We took off to Brighton right after we rented my lovely gear.

I do like my lavendar boarding pants though (they look like a dull grey here becuase Adam had my camera on a funky setting) . They were over a hundred dollars on sale for 35 bucks.

Even with my crappy gear, we had a GREAT time!! It was so fun to get out and do something other than school for a change. Adam was surprised at how good I was (It was our first time going together). I have to admit I was surprised by myself too. It's been years since I have been. Total, I have only been like four times in my life (including this time).
I always get nervous when the time comes to get off the lift, even though I never fall. For some reason I have anxiety issues with it. I am afraid I am going to hurt not only myself but someone else some day.
Adam is a such a sweetheart because he stayed with me on the intermediate runs, even though he is pretty much pro. Sadly, I got tired after going down like four times. That just proved to me how badly I need to get back in shape!! I let Adam go off for a little bit, while I rested, cuz I know he missed doing the park runs with the jumps and rails. This is the first time in a long time that he doesn't have a season pass to Canyons or Park City. After he returned, I went up with him a couple more times before we left. We went and ate at Good Wood after because were in the mood for some good barbeque.

Did I mention we only have two weeks left until finals? Its great. We are past all the hard stuff. We have a couple papers and assignments left, but thats it. It's wonderful, I enjoy having time with my hubby!!!

This weekend we were privileged to be able to enjoy conference, and to spend time with Adam's parents. Conference was sooo good. I was surprised at how quickly each session passed by. If you didn't hear all the messages make sure to look them up. They were powerful and inspiring.
On saturday, we went to Outback Steakhouse with the in-laws as well as with Carrie and Mark (Adams Aunt and Uncle). They are hoot. We had a good time. Outback's bloomin onion is pretty good, but the coconut shrimp is by far their best appetizer (FYI). Adam and I always get the Outback Special every time we go, with the sweet potato and green beans. Their sweet potatoe tastes like dessert. It is my favorite. After, we went and saw Fast and Furious. It was pretty good besides the girl make-out scenes (which were so unnecessary).
