Early Morning Skyline

This was taken walking to school this morning.  It didn't turn out quite as well as I would have liked (does it ever?), but it isn't a horrible representation of the pretty sunrise.

Birthday Cake

Today is a good friend's birthday.  He and his wife brought me a wonderful pie on my birthday, so we decided to return the favor.

Small Snowman

I saw this cute little snowman sitting in the middle of the sidewalk on my walk home from work tonight.  It made me so happy to see it :)

In my sewing class, we're making an apron out of old pants.  This is my sad little apron, with a nice secret pocket at the top.  I'm looking for ideas of what I can do with it.... anyone have something they think would go well?  (and don't worry, the black will finish going around the edges... this is still a work in process)

Snowy Berries

Rexburg hasn't been its normal self, and we haven't gotten a lot of snow this year.  Generally, we'll get half and inch to an inch, then it will have all melted by the next day (it actually reminds me a lot of Tennessee).  When it was snowing today going between classes, all I could think of is "Yes!!  Keep snowing!!  You can do it Rexburg!"

Roast Chicken

We decided to roast a whole chicken that Drew's family had given to us.  I had never made one before, so I was quite impressed when it turned out tasting quite good.

Funny signs

I think my favorite thing about this sign is that it is on a rather generic classroom on campus, but the note is directed to just the Poli Sci people... but maybe I'm just weird like that.

Snack of the Day

In my Children's Lit. class, we had an assignment to create a book.  this is the one my group came up with.  no one else took it when it was handed back to to us, so I got to bring it home.  I'm actually rather excited for it

In my sewing class, we are making a pillow.  We got these to take home today so when it's done, we can have a real pillow :)

While at the DI, looking for a pair of pants I can cut up, we found a very good colander.

Paper Snowflakes

While Drew was at work tonight, I watched Veggie Tales and cut out paper snowflakes to put on our front door.  it was a whole bunch of fun.

Harry Potter 3

We got another harry potter and watched it today.  I decided I don't like this one as much as the first two... it seemed really rushed, and had some weird shots (like birds flying into the Whomping Willow, and the Whomping Willow going through the seasons) that could have been used to further the plot.

New Books

the bookstore finally got in the books i needed for my Children's lit class.

Wednesday, January 11, 2012


We saw online a really cool idea of these dragonflies to put on your wall.  we decided to try to make some ourselves, and they actually turned out pretty well.

book list

My Children's Lit. class had the wrong list in the bookstore (grumble grumble) so I got all wrong books.  unfortunately, none of the books i already got are the same as the ones i need.

New Fong's

Not realizing that it closed at 9, we got there (after Drew was done with work), about twenty till 9.  It was deserted, and we had the place to ourselves.

Tithing and donations

I was having a hard time with the camera today, so this is the only picture that actually turned up. hopefully, it should now be fixed.
