small world

In my physical science lab this morning the TA told everyone to form groups and share cool stories and the best ones would be reported back to the class. Standard getting to know you exercise, except I had a fantastic story!

When it was my groups turn I told my class that I was from England and the previous new years eve I had gone to multistake dance where one of my friends introduced me to one of his old mission companions, who was visiting, which just happens to be my TA!!

The look on his face was classic!

I never knew speaking up in class could be so much fun..

MY new favourite cake

My mother has recently perfected a lemon drizzle cake. Today I decided to take a whack at it, plus I made homemade lemon curd!!

I ♥ NY

I was looking through my NY pictures and I noticed that a definite trend is that we like to eat!!

In the past i've completed both a meat free week and a sugar free week, I recently decided to embark on the hardest challenge yet - no carbs!

It's become somewhat of a family thing although we have mixed views. I'm not sure if i'll make seven days, my mum doesn't think she'll last three and Cori has no intention of lasting longer than an hour!

and to Danielle and Nicole, i'm throwing down the gauntlet, but you should know - there's a prize!!

Paris holds the key to the heart

Having come back to social Siberia for the summer, my parents were super awesome and sent me to Paris to see my best friend from my Woodford County days, Sara.

As i've been to Paris multiple times before I didn't feel any inclination to do all the 'touristy' things again, this freed my time up considerably and I was able to notice several things about Paris and about the French that I never had before.

The parking is not so great...

People watching is so much easier if you just face all the chairs out...

People actually do carry around baugettes everywhere :)

Oh, and I love Sara!!

especially for Danielle...

I'm sure that I posted something or other about my hair and how its now a good 10 inches shorter than it was but apparently that is not good enough for dani so here are some more pictures especially for her!!

I really wish I had pictures of this because yesterday I made a lasagna that was kinda amazing!

I was super nervous about making a lasagna for the first time all by myself but I made it and it was so good! :D I have enough left for lunch today but that's it - between Chad and I and two of my roommates that just wanted a 'bite' it was essentially gone!!

Sometimes i'm just really impressive!!
