It's been a while!

Well looks like I am slacking a little bit in the blog world! We are so excited that school is over for the semester. Matt did so amazing this semester! I am so proud of him. He got a 3.6! I wish I could of grabbed that GPA. I did good except for the dreaded calculus class. I got a D+....oh no!!!! Do you know what this means. I have to take it again! I have to get a C!!!! Oh well, not much I can do about it now.
Let's see...what else is new. I go my hair cut. It is now short and blonde! I am loving it so far! It's my summer hair do!
We stayed in Logan for the summer because we both have great jobs here. I am working at Logan River and I just love working there. Number one, it is a golf course,which I love of course! Free can't get much better then that! Oh and I love the people I work with. My coworkers are pretty much my family in Logan. Matt is working at CampSaver. He works full time for the summer. He also loves his job and the people he works with. We don't see eachother as much as we thought we would since it's the summer and we don't have school but that was false!
We have been golfing as much as we can. We usually go right when he gets off at 6....that is if I am not working. That has been our summer activities so far. Other then Monopoly and Scrabble! Well can't think of much else! Love you all!

3 months, Eternity to go!!

So I've been slacking on this whole blogging thing!! I was doing so good for a long while!!! Today marks Matt and I's 3 month anniversary! We went out to delicious Indian Oven. So much amazing food! I love the Chicken Coconut Karma!!!! If you've never tried it you better stop in!!! I thought to celebrate our 3 months together I'd state just a few things I love about being married....if I don't stop myself I could go on for ages so here's a few
  • Always having your best friend around.
  • Having someone to cheer you up no matter what.
  • Being so extremely comfortable with each other that sometimes I am just amazed!
  • Thinking about the future and having a family with Matt being the perfect daddy ever.
  • Going to the temple with my love
  • Still being in awe that my husband is that dang sexy and sweet.
  • Being cheesy and not even caring.
  • Figuring out how to be a housewife(even though I don't really have the cleaning part down yet)
  • Snuggling every single night and waking up to a kiss and a hug.
  • Laughing nonstop!
  • Sharing everything(even the full size bed which is a bit tough sharing sometimes)
  • Knowing that I will be with my love for eternity.
  • Loving with all of my heart
  • Nothing is better!!!
I love being married! I don't know why people say that the first year is the hardest. It is a time that you have to be totally selfless and let a person completely into your world there is nothing that can compare to the love you receive daily from your spouse and the ability to care and love someone to no end! Matt is my world and he always will be and I am so grateful for him and all that he does for me. I am grateful for the gospel and the blessing of eternal family! I am the happiest ever and I don't see that ever ending!

Pardon the interruption of the 30-day challenge but I found this delicious and delightfully easy dinner that anyone would like!

Super Stuffed French Bread Pizza Rustica

  • 1 (2 foot long) loaf French bread
  • 1 pound sweet Italian sausage
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 large cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 package frozen chopped spinach defrosted and squeezed dry
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups part skim ricotta
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1/2 pound sweet sopressata, from the deli, sliced thick, chopped
  • 1/2 stick pepperoni, chopped
  • 1 sack (10 ounces) shredded mozzarella
  • 1 sack (10 ounces) shredded provolone
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Split bread lengthwise and hollow it out. Cut in half across, making 4 shells for pizzas.

Heat a skillet over medium high flame and brown sausage in extra-virgin olive oil. Brown and crumble sausage. Add red bell pepper, onion and garlic. Cook 3 to 5 minutes, add spinach. Remove mixture from heat and season with a pinch of salt and black pepper, to your taste.

Transfer to a bowl. Combine sausage and veggies with ricotta, Parmesan, sopressata and pepperoni. Fill bread shells and top with mounded mozzarella and provolone cheeses. Place in hot oven on cookie sheet and bake until cheese melts and bubbles and bread is super crisp, about 10 to 12 minutes. Top pizzas with oregano and hot pepper flakes. Serve immediately, or snack all night!

Okay so of course I made a few changes to my liking. This household likes spicy food so instead of the sweet Italian sausage I used hot Italian sausage(which was tasty). I skipped out on the spinach not because I don't like it, just because it sounded kinda weird in my pizza. Also, I love green peppers so I used one small red bell pepper and one small green pepper. I skipped on the red pepper flakes since I already had spicy sausage. Oh and I spread a small layer of marinara sauce I had in the fridge on the bread shells before putting the filling in!!! Try this recipe you won't regret it!

Day 13 and 14

Day 13 – Your favorite musician and why?

Well its so hard to just pinpoint one artist that is your favorite! I really have never been able too!! Music is just so wonderful and I love a wide variety of genres! So I will just name a few that I love. These are the CD's you put in your car and they stay in for weeks/months and you don't get tired of them!!

Adele(I may have a slight woman crush on her! I love her voice!)
Matt introduced me to this band and I love this CD!
Got to love old school!!!!
Oh this soundtrack is the best thing listen to, sing to and dance around to
I don't listen to a lot of country but you can't go wrong with this man! Day 14- A show you are addicted to?

Okay this is a recent addiction and I ask myself why everytime I watch it! It is so disturbing to watch all of these killers but at the same time intriguing and
I end up watching it till the end every time! I just don't know why?? It is so good though! On a lighter note I can not get enough of this show and its hilarious cast....

Day 12

Day 12 – A photograph of the town you live in.

This is where we live. The beautiful town of Logan Utah! I love how beautiful our surroundings are. The other day I was on the bus and I was looking around outside and admiring the mountains. This town is just surrounded with amazing mountains that right now are snow capped! I love it!

Day 10 and 11

Day 10 – A photo of your favorite place to eat.
Way too hard of a question. If you know me you know I love food!!! Oh and I love going out to eat! One of my favorite things is to try new places and new food! I don't know if I really have a favorite. In Logan I would have to say that it would have to be this place even though it is in Smithfield....And anytime I'm in the hometown of Sheridan Wyoming I have to eat here... And I everytime we go to Draper I want to eat here....
Oh there are so many more I could put on here. I'll list a few more favorites in Logan: Takara Sushi, Kamin, Indian Oven, Texas Roadhouse and I love Jimmy Johns too!!

Day 11 – What’s in your makeup bag?
Well that's a fun question because I just got a whole new revamped makeup bag for my birthday!! I don't really like buying makeup with my own money cause that stuff adds up so fast! I asked my mom to get me a new makeup bag and she got me a cute zebra one that I love and a whole new collection of makeup. Well, It's just the basics so a bit of lotion, blush, mascara and eyeliner. There is a whole new part of my makeup collection that I am obsessed with...It's called MAC eyeshadow and my sister-in-law got me addicted. She got me a gift card for Christmas to start and I got some more for my birthday so I know have eight colors and I love them so much. I never really got into makeup until I was introduced to this stuff!!! New favorite color...Stars and Rockets. This picture doesn't give it justice!

Day 8 and 9

Day 8 – A song to match your mood.

This song matches my mood everyday! I feel so loved every single day. I have so many wonderful people in my life that always show me how much they love and care for me. This love comes from my amazing friends, wonderful family, my extraordinary husband and of course the Lord. I feel so blessed to have all these people in my life!

Day 9 – A photo of the item you last purchased

I may have a slight addiction and it's not only Dr. Pepper. It's all soda!! Mostly Dr. Pepper, Diet Mt. Dew and Diet Coke. I love The McDonald's dollar Diet Cokes. Best thing ever but since I'm just on campus in between classes I thought I'd need a little drink. The drink of choice today a nice cold Dr. Pepper. I need to get off this addiction and I did for about 2 months one time but decided I might as well go back to it, so I did!
