Aaaahhh.... It's Finals Week!

Oh finals week, why must thou plague me so? Shall I compare thee to a summer's day. No. Because you are not even close to one. Thou art far more contemptuous and less temperate.

Okay, so I'm done with the bad Shakespeare rant now...sorry you had to hear that.

The good news is, even though I've been as elusive as the disappearing Cheshire Cat lately, I'll be back full time soon with the summer blogging schedule! I'm super pumped. I already have a bunch of ideas for Photoshop tutorials, book reviews, and random musings all planned out. It's going to be awesome!

But before we can get to that, I have to pass my finals or I'll be stuck in summer school, which is not cool like blogging is.

I firmly believe that good laugh makes everything better, so here is a compilation of random school related things that made me smile and inspired me to be better. I hope they brighten your day and outshine the gloom of the semesters impending end. :)

May the grading odds be ever in your favor!

Just Poppin' In

I looked out the window and what did I see....

Popcorn popping on the apricot tree!

Speaking of popcorn, it feels like forever since I've popped into this corner of cyberspace. How have you been, internet peeps?

I promise I have a good reason for my lack of writing. I have been in Indianapolis for a National Leadership Conference in conjunction with Business Professionals of America. I was honored to place 2nd in the nation for my division! <Enter full celebratory parade complete with trombones and a person riding an elephant. Not because that actually happens in real life, but this is a day dream, so, you know...>

Anyway, on that happy note I thought it would be fun to give you a little update on my life. Here are 5 things that are making it sweet right now.

I'm sorry....one more popcorn reference and then I'll stop. I have now discovered another food I cannot live without. On a throne very near that of my beloved ice cream resides this masterpiece of snackfood: G.H. Cretor's Chicago Mix popcorn. When my parents brought this odd flavor combination home from Costco I thought they had lost their marbles, but with one taste my teasing was silenced. It is absolutely ah. maz. ing.

A couple of weeks ago I started putting the Book of Mormon on audio as I got dressed each morning. I have been shocked at how much more I have felt the spirit. My days go so much better when I make the scriptures a part of my routine.

Sometimes my nerdy side takes over. I must admit it went a little crazy when I was on eBay.com a few weeks ago. Long story short, I am now the proud owner of this fabulous frock.

It's not secret that I love me some BYUtv and Granite Flats is definitely no exception to this universal law of my world. The mystery of each episode draws me in like a bee to the honey [or a Sarah to the ice cream carton...] It is a wonderful series that takes places during the Cold War era. Between satellites, spies, and secrets, every episode leaves my mind whirling in a happy flurry while I try to guess the outcome of the season. It airs every Sunday. You can watch the full episodes online any time, here.


The phrase, "I don't know" is officially going to be out of my vocabulary. How long do you think it will take me to memorize this most classy alternative?

What makes your life sweet?
