OH MY GOODNESS. Seriously so good.

So I am gluten free and it's hard to find good gluten free food. I honestly think bad things actually taste somewhat good to me now if that makes any sense. But I found these at the grocery store last week and they're AMAZING. Have you ever been to Tucanos or any of those delicious Brazilian restaurant and they have those yummy cheese bread balls that you eat hundreds of and basically have no room for any meat (I swear they do that on purpose)? But these are them! I love them. I can seriously sit down and eat 12 of them. You need to make these right this second :)

To buy or not to buy

I am debating on whether or not to buy this bad boy:
I've never had my own camera. My previous camera (that was a hand me down) is broken and Nathan's camera does not have a charger and I just really want a nice camera that takes nice crisp pictures. I want to take cool pictures of cool things.  Just look at it though. It's calling my name. It is a little pricy but nothing over the top. And I know I would use it, probably daily. And I was thinking of doing a picture a day for the next year and putting them on my blog. Thoughts please!

Darn Semi!

Well Nathan and I have been in Chicago for three weeks now and we have been loving every second of it!  Nathan is enjoying his internship while I am enjoying nannying.  I forgot to blog about our 29 hour drive out here. It was quite eventful because this happened:

I know right? So it's day two of driving and I am behind a big old semi. First of all I hate driving behind, beside, in front of or anywhere near semis. They just scare me. I am pretty close to the semi, probably too close when all of a sudden huge pieces of wood come flying at our car, I think it was a wooden pallet before. I was honestly just happy it didn't break our windshield and impale one of us. We saw no damage and I continued driving. Then as I am passing the same semi that ran over the wood and he begins honking at us pointing to the front of the car. So I get off the next exit to check out the car to see a huge piece of wood sticking out and liquid leaking out from somewhere underneath the hood.  Awesome. Thank goodness there was a car shop just off the exit. They tell us about a four hour wait... But for some reason they decided to put us ahead of everyone on the list and did our car first and it only took an hour and a half! What a blessing! But not a blessing to our wallet.  In the end we made it to Chicago. Watch out for those semis!

I LOVE Reading

I used to not be much of a reader but lately I can't stop reading books! I have two MUST reads. They are both so ridiculously good.
This book is so so so good. My mom introduced it to me. Its about a girl that has a very poor family but they make it by and how she made it to New York City. It is amazing. 

 I know, I know, I'm a little behind the fad of Hunger Games but I just finished this book and I NEED to get the second one now. I could not put this book down. It is so intense. Looove it.

 It was so great to be home for a couple of days! We love spending time with the Waldrom family and we miss them lots. But we will get to see them in about 3 weeks when we go camping in San Diego! Sadly I cannot find my camera charger so we do not have many picture of our trip in Arizona but here are a few from my phone:

A Temple sesh with the family

The boys went golfing 

Nathan was so kind to watch Tristan while my mom, sisters and I went shopping and he sent me this picture while we were out

Happy Mothers Day!!

 This is how cute my husband is:

Happy Mothers Day to my wonderful mom.  I really wish she could be with me today because I threw up 5 times last night and she really knows how to make me feel better fast.

St. George

Hello! Sorry I have not blogged in awhile, Nathan and I have been traveling the states lately.  We are so happy that school is done with and we can have a break for four months. Right after finals we drove to St. George with our good friends Ian and Holli Guzy and the soon to be Rob and Chelsea Starling. We had such a great time playing games and laying by the pool. Here are some fun pictures of our weekend and Easter Sunday! More pictures to come soon of Disneyland and Phoenix.
