    Mmmmm Brownies

    I love experimenting with desserts and making fun unique yummies with lots of fun flavors, but sometimes you’re just in the mood for something classic and simple. Enter these delicious brownies.  This recipe is super easy!  It’s almost as fast as a box mix, but tastes yummier and more homemade in my opinion.  So, if you’re in need of a quick treat to wrap up and make someones day, I recommend these 🙂 Ingredients   -1 Cup Butter -2 Cups Sugar -4 Eggs -2 Teaspoons Vanilla -2/3 Cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder -1 Cup Flour -1/2 Teaspoon Salt -1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder Directions 1.Preheat your oven to 350 Degrees F.

    Fun on a frozen lake

    Saturday morning Scott felt like going on an adventure. I had heard that Utah Lake was completely frozen over and that you could walk out to the middle of the lake. I didn’t really believe it, but we thought we’d check it out.  Oh my goodness, I wasn’t expecting something so beautiful or to have so much fun! The sky was blue and the lake was white. It was so simple and just plain gorgeous.  That red thing. That’s a buoy^ ^Two gigantic sheets of ice colliding ^ Scott breaking the ice.

    From the iPhone

    I made this wreath for Valentine’s Day from glitter foam hearts at the Dollar Store. Ya, I love the Dollar Store. I’ve been working on some new paintings for the shop! It really is so much fun! This isn’t a really great picture, but it was a really great night so that makes up for it.  I finally got around to organizing my jewelry! Now I can actually grab a necklace without having to untangle it from 5 others. Yay  I really really love my new iphone case. Thanks ebay for a steal of a deal.   I think I might love polka dots too much…… or maybe not. It’s so…

    The Spruces

     I’m a little behind on this one, but a few weekends ago we went up to one of Scott’s favorite little spots to celebrate his birthday. It was cold and beautiful… and a lot of fun!  I have so many funny videos of this day that I would love to share but I can’t figure out how to lower their quality so they can be uploaded. You guys have any tips?

You guys wanna hear a funny story? This weekend Scott and I went up a few cities to visit my best friend who was in town babysitting her brother’s 4 kids while they were on a cruise. She was staying in her brother’s house, so we got there about nine at night after the baby and little kids had gone to bed. We all got in the hot tub around 10pm including the oldest of the kids. At about 10:30 my friend sent the little girl back in the house to…

    My Favorite Color

    1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 My best friend was in town this weekend and we had a blast. We definitely went shopping and the whole time I kept gravitating towards everything pink. Pink has always been my favorite color (except for a few years in Junior high when lime green stole the spotlight), but with Valentine’s Day approaching and the color of the year being Orchid I think I’m loving everything pink even more than usual! Happy Sunday!
