New Friends and Social Endeavors

I started attending a new congregation back in July. These are some of my new associates I have met there. Peter taught us how to make pot stickers. You may recognize him from his Debut with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
Karina, Levi, Julie, and Patrice are hanging out in the back and there was another group in the living room at the time.


St. Patrick's Day Parade 2011.
If you ever need a balloon arch for any occasion...I'm your girl.

Each month at work we have a 'spirit day'. March was Decade Day.

Heidi organized this enormous group to go see our friend Mandi perform in a play at the Desert Star.


A couple of posts ago I included a picture of our first Bountiful Basket. Here are the pictures of more of the yummy produce we have enjoyed as a result.

Week 2
Week 3

A forgotten Holiday

I forgot to include pictures from our Valentine's celebration!

It was a night for the Roomies and my faithful friend April, who's husband was away training for his new pilot job.

My roommate Karina has chosen to not eat sweets except on holidays. Weeks prior to Valentines day she requested "moist chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream, caramel topping, hot fudge, whip cream, and cherries".

Fine Dining

Have you ever eaten the food at 7-11? Neither had I until Friday. Robert and I had it a 3 course dining adventure all from 7-11. It is also worth noting that this was my first chili dog experience.

Good news! I don't think either of us ended up sick from.

To Finally Be Caught Up!

Ringing in the new year. I don't know most of the people in this picture, but at least you can see me down in the right corner. I don't know exactly why I was making this face.

On to the sledding extravaganza!
Jacob and I.
Some of my favorite people. Starting in back: Heidi, Luke(I don't really know him, but he is roommates with some of my favorite people), TJ (I really like that kid). In the Middle: Me and Robert. In the front: Karina, and Jacob.

One adventure in tubing. Robert lasted till the bottom of the hill...almost.

I believe the quote repeated over and over as they went down the hill, "We're gonna die!".

This was not as thrilling as we had hoped, but at least we tried.

Yeah. I'm cool when I carry a tube.

We celebrated King's Day belatedly with a Latin night. Heidi, Karina, and I made this piñata. Karina and Heidi are the creative genius behind the exterior appearance. I was sleeping:(.

Just a funny picture.

Heidi taking her turn with it while is was still hanging. It didn't stay up long, so...

We resorted to the baseball approach. It was pretty much the best piñata ever! Heidi and I filled it with what ever we could find around the house. Dental flossers, old nail polish, flat marbles, life savers, alcohol swabs, random tubes of chap-stick and lip gloss, tootsie rolls...

I have serious questions about Costco's chicken! Can you even imagine the chicken this breast came off of?! That can't be natural. Please note the size of the banana next to it...and that is not a small banana!
Heidi and I signed up for our first "bountiful basket". It is a food co-op that you buy into and get your produce at wholesale price. We paid $15.00 and got all this! We were most excited about the strawberries b/c right now you have to pay a small fortune for them at the store...ok, maybe only $5-$6, but still.

The guy taking this picture told us to act like we knew each other...apparently Robert doesn't know me as well as I thought.

A hole!!
Robert explored the hole too:).

We hiked to Donut Falls. I had never been up inside the cave where the donut name comes from. So Fantastic!!!

I love holes!

Post Script

This picture is evidence that I am perfectly capable of wasting time.
