Things I Love Right Now

here are a few things i love right this minute in no particular order:
 (first I love the new blogger photo uploader!)
Orbits pina colada gum, it's like a party in my mouth. d.e.l.i.c.i.o.u.s.
my new scripture goodies i got in Utah (and the new scriptures) i got a color coding book to make sense out of all my scribbles, the BIG pack of eagle scripture crayons and the young women ribbon bookmark holder
our mission wall where we have Ty's countdown calendar, wednesday was his 2nd week in the MTC holla! and the It's Russia Time! clock we've had on our wall for a year for my aunt and uncle who are serving in russia. soon we will have another clock with It's Santiago Time! on it. i also love that Shelley just came up and pointed out that the clock on the wall is wrong...haha
homemade cauliflower soup in my favorite big red mug. it has like 54 calories a serving and it too is d.e.l.i.c.i.o.u.s. i also love that i adorned it with a few bacon bits. don't judge.

my new ROMY lace undershirt that i got for a whopping 5 bucks, originally 18. booya

i love the fact that these gummy bears and single york peppermint candy have been sitting on the counter mocking me and i don't have one desire to eat them. (well maybe one desire way back there covered in dust and spiders) 

i love that i get to teach a lesson to the YW on sunday. i usually teach once a month but since i've been gone i haven't taught since the beginning of August. i made little "first aid kits" to give to each of the girls and i'm going to make some Zopf (Züpfe) bread for them to eat that goes along with a poem. too bad i can't eat any. it's my favorite bread EVER.

i LOVE the Dove go fresh body mists i have two scents but this is my favorite so far. 

i love that i've been drinking all the water i'm supposed to (even though what's in there now is sugar free strawberry lemonaid). i keep half a lemon in the bottle so all my water is easier to get down. i love water but after so many glasses i get sick of it. (something i DON'T love...peeing every 5 minutes)

i love that we got our complete LOST series on blu-ray. i love the hidden compartments and the game it comes with. can't wait to watch it, i'm going to wait until Ty gets home from his mission in two years and have a marathon.

i love these stars that we made yesterday for YW activity. they are three dimensional. i have some big plans for these babies.

i also love that i will be getting the new ipod touch 64G  as soon as SOMEONE gets it in stock again. grrrrr i went on a hunt today but nobody had them in stock. 

i love that it's windy and rain-y outside and that the trees are starting to change colors. and the fact that bellwood farms is open and i can have my fill of honeycrisp apples that are the size of my head. no joke. one apple probably has half my daily calories. 

i love that i've lost six pounds since restarting my diet last monday. probably could be better if i would go to the gym buuuuut that's not always how i roll, though i should start rolling that way.
i'm sure there's more but that's just what i could come up with real quick-like. now i want more soup :(. i love the fact that i made lots extra last time and froze them in baggies and can have cauliflower soup whenever i please.

well actually i have one or two more, i LOVE the show the colony and i love that Survivor is back on and amazing Race starts sunday...i love me some good shows OK?!  oh and community is almost back on!

i love that i made indian curry last night and it still smells like it, BUT i don't like that there was no leftovers dangit!

i love this youtube video you gotta watch the original too she's CRAZY.

i love the song king of anything by sara barellis and i just discovered this girl called Lenka whom i enjoy also. thanks pandora

New blog in town

I have been gone. in utah. for what seems like a long time. we were dropping my brother off at the MTC which is where he will train for his mission for our church. i haven't had much of a desire to blog as of late blogger's been really weird and won't let me access my page on our main computer. it has been so hectic i haven't even thought/cared about it. here are a few pictures from our trip, i'll post more on faceboo.

ty pointing to CHILE where he will head off to in early november. i think this was in the conference center

we had to do a "dry run" of dropping ty off b/c my parents left on sunday and he didn't check in until wednesday. so we trekked to the MTC and stood in front of a building since they took down the MTC sign. we looked pretty suspicious but whatever.
here's the family minus me (it's great being the photographer!) in front of the salt lake temple just as the fountain started coming up.
here's the conference center. we had a great tour guide who gave us the DL about this building. it's pretty cool/inspired.
and last photo is of our whole family and my aunt and uncles family at the mt. timp. temple. we stayed with them in spanish the harry kirschna temple...SO COOL.

anyways so we are adjusting to life without ty around, it isn't too different b/c we hardly saw him anyways he was always at a friends house. oh maybe i should explain about the title of this post...i made ty a mission blog that can be found here there is information on how to contact him and we will post letters/emails as we get them so everyone can be updated.

SURVIVOR STARTS WEDNESDAY! whhho's excited?! amanda's excited. just an FYI.

oh ya i also started my prism diet again today. i still have about 80 more calories until 1,000 the options are endless. i'm thinking a nice honeycrisp apple will hit the spot. here's to loosing 25 lbs in 5 weeks and peeing every 4.5 minutes! huzzah!
