PSA time

Do not try to walk & text at the same time**
Or you could stub your toe on a barrel cactus!!*

*but this really only happens if you live in Arizona :\

**PLEASE at least wear closed-toe shoes if you decide to ignore this advice!

Happy Easter!

I am a big fan of Easter, it is truly one of my favorite holidays. I don't want to get too cheesy, since this is just a blog... but let's just say I love any opportunity to openly celebrate and express gratitude for the wonderful gift of the Atonement in my life :)

Since I could not be with family up in Phx. to celebrate, I did the next best thing--spent it with members of my ward family! My roommate, her fiance, & I made a pork roast (got the recipe off of one of Monica's recommended blogs for recipes [thanks!]) and had a nice dinner with a few other people in our ward.

I like hosting get-togethers ("parties" as some call them in the college world) however, in reverence for the Sabbath and also for Easter, I decided to keep the guest-list (haha) simple and had only a few friends over with whom to celebrate. [check out that proper grammar Cha!] I made cupcakes and a heart-shaped cake that said "Easter is about LOVE" and we watched The Testaments--which is a great Easter movie! It was a lot of fun and still spiritually uplifting... so yet another good time spent with my friends down here in Tucson :)

Happy Easter!

Here is my blog

I have given in to the peer pressure. Growing up with 5 older sisters, I have learned to obey or suffer the consequences... So when my unrelenting bullies said "make a blog or else!" well...

wouldn't you be frightened into submission too??
