Smell that Monterey breeze

Here is my LOVELY friend Hilary and her adorable family, whom I was able to visit last week before the hussle and bussle of school and work started. Brian, Hilary's husband was so sweet and let me have optimal girlfriend time and gave up his side of the bed for a air mattress in Brennens room. Brian your the sweetest. Hilary and I grew up together and lived with each other for about 3 months and we love out time together. I had such a good time there.

Oh I need to go! I cant finish this post!!!!!

Ocean Fun

In Santa Barbara we went out to lunch and sat on the beach for a few hours. It was a wonderful time for me spending quality time with good friends.

Educate yourself!

Ok anyone who reads this. I have been doing some reading and researching that I want to share with you. Because I love you all and dont want you to go through that I went through. This does scare me because you are all exposed to what I have been exposed to and you may not be showing the signs yet. Cancer takes years to form until it has reached a point where you can feel it.
Lets start today and take control of what goes into our bodies. Our government and health facilities sure are not!

Pesto Presto!

HAPPY 4Th of JULY!!!!!
I had a fantastic day so far. This morning I went to the annual Tri-Ward breakfast and played with my family and talked with old friends.

After my sister and her family came by to pick blackberries and do some touch ups in the garden. Some deer have been coming in and eating my tomatoes! I have yet to taste my delicious heirloom tomatoes and I and beginning to wonder if I will this year! Last time I had a garden i had a huge fence around it.

After that I made some Pesto! I have never done this before and i have been so exctied to make pesto with the basil I grew. I will place some more pictures of my garden. Most of it was grown from seed. A few of the tomatoes were from the nursery. There is nothing better than eating what you have grown. How about you? Any of you have wonderful gardens?

Girlfriend Parties

Recently some of my girlfriends have been getting together a lot lately. I have loved every minute of it. Anne(in blue) had a party and I was only going to stay for an hour and I ended up being there till 1 in the morning. This was supposed to be my Home work night. All I did was a bunch of giggling! The next night when I was doing my homework I felt the affects of not doing the night before. I could not help but smile and think of 20 some year old girls laughing like 13 year olds! I had a blast and finished my school work and took my tests with out a problem!
Yes, so school is out and I am ready for the summer!
I have lots of exciting hopes and dreams this summer. These are things that I love to do and didnt get to do them last summer. So I am excited to have energy and the ability to do some of the most simple things!I am so excited to do all of them...
