A Bit of A Pick Me Up

Our Room was looking a bit bland so today I decided to decorate our wall a little bit. I collected post cards while I was studying abroad so I decided to hang them on the wall, along with some pictures.



What do you think? comments/ ideas anyone..??

Heather and Joe's Engagement Party

My wonderful "sister" (cousin) Heather got engaged a couple of months ago and we had a BIG party to celebrate the love birds. It was a great night filled with mexican food, drunk men singing, and laughing with my family.

While the oven is preheating to 425 degrees, melt butter into pan.
Pour batter into pan with melted butter
Cook for 10-12 mins or until pancake has risen and is firm
Make sure you eat them right when they come out

Check that off my list...

It all started last semester when my dear friend Alli talked me into taking Ecology and Conservation. Of course I was quick to answer...YES!... I get to spend 5 hour a week with my really smart best friend and get credit for it. Little did I know that it was going to be SO exciting!

We went on a field trip to the Point Loma Tide Pools on Tuesday. We saw lots of cool sea creatures and took fun pictures. I also was persuaded by Alli, Portlan, and my teacher to lick, yes lick, a sea anemone. Which of course I did. It really hurt and kind of felt like I was eating something REALLY spicy. My tongue lost some feeling for a while, but it went away! Now I can say I have licked a Sea Anemone.
