Confessions of a Brunette on the Internet 155

Finally made it through January. This month has been brutal. Mostly because of the weather because it has been the coldest winter that I have ever experienced, but also because I get the blues if you know what I mean. Towards the beginning of the month, I got a cold and an ear infection. Well... to end the month I got the flu. I'm trying to remember the last time I had the flu. It has been years. I don't think you forget that it is horrible to throw up... but I think you forget HOW horrible it is to throw up. I was throwing up every couple of hours all morning and just crying as I lay on the bathroom floor. I couldn't get out of bed until 3:30pm. You always hope that the one benefit of throwing up is that it will relieve the pain in your stomach. However, mine didn't. Even when I started to feel better, I still went to bed that night with a little bit of pain. Around 4 I finally got enough energy to throw on some sweats and go into work for 10 minutes just to make sure that all my stuff would get transferred to my co-workers while I was gone on vacation... did I mention I was going to be going on vacation the next day? Perfect timing. Well... I guess I should be glad it didn't happen the day of my trip. I then went to the store to get some sprite and saltines and went home and was on the couch the rest of the night. I missed lesson #1 of my hip hop class and at the VERY end of the night, I barely had enough energy to pack for my trip and just prayed that I would wake up the next day feeling better... which I did. All I wanted all day though was someone to come take care of me. To go to the store for me to get the salines and sprite. However... I had nobody. Nobody to come and comfort me in my day of what felt like was going to be my death. Oh well.

My neighbor Geoff helped me transfer phones... so I am finally using the iphone that my roommate, Megan gave me (thank you) and I have a nice working phone that doesn't turn off every time I try and use it for more than a couple of minutes. YEAH!! Now I just need to get used to the iphone world. I'm pretty sure I'm going to love it though. The only bummer was losing everything on my old phone. Pictures and music and video's I can transfer over. It is kind of a pain, but doable. Text massages, gone. Kind of makes me sad. Two years of conversations with people. I guess I'm sentimental and care about that kind of stuff. Had to re-download all of my apps and all that jazz. Still... it needed to be done.

Saturday was a very productive day. My roommate Sarah and I went through our pantry and under the kitchen sink. We got rid of a whole wall full of trash and DI items. Lets talk about how we had 20+ vases under the sink. That is my fault. I swear I'm not a hoarder... I'm not even sure where they all came from, but now we only have 4. Sarah and I are both alike in the fact that cleaning and getting rid of things and organizing makes us feel good and happy. So we bonded over that. I also cleaned a lot after that. Seems like the right thing to do on a Saturday.

I know that I talked a lot about how awful this month was because of the weather and my sicknesses, but looking back on this month, a lot of good things have happened as well. First month of 2013 I have gotten my hair dyed a new color, I have an iphone now and am using it finally, Ty and I rocked karaoke, I reconnected with a good friend from Jr High on facebook (Liz Ramsey), I was an extra in a film for work with Scott Christopher, I have been accomplishing one of my goals for this year already by making lots of things that I have pinned on pinterest, I have already had my first fling of the year, had the first bi-annual fort week (for 2 weeks), went sledding, went on a private plane ride with some of my good friends around Utah AND now I am in San Francisco with one of my best friends, Kirsten. I would like to add that the weather is BEAUTIFUL and warm! If all of that happened in the month of January, the first month of the year... just imagine what the rest of 2013 has in store for me! It will be EPIC! 2013 is going to be an amazing year... I just know it.

Jay & Sherstin's Wedding

Jay and Sherstin got married on Saturday. I rarely go to receptions, but they have both been good friends to me, especially Jay in the last year so I went. I was able to see some old friends which was great and the wedding was SO cute.

Jay is a pilot and Sherstin (like me) loves to travel... so they had a travel themed wedding. I had seen some ideas for travel themed weddings on pinterest and loved them. They did an awesome job with theirs. SO cute! Love how it turned out. Of course I took pictures...

First off, they started the theme with their announcements & engagement pictures. Cutest ever! Which is refreshing after all the tacky ones I get.

Then the reception.... loved the small details. Instead of a guest book, they had everyone write notes on post cards. So cute right?

It was so fun to get to talk to Mary & Allison. I used to visit teach Allison and they were both roommates with Sherstin.

Liz, Steph and I with the happy couple.

Chicken Tikka Masala

I love Indian food. I could eat it once a week and be completely happy. You would think because I love it so much, that I would have learned to make it so I could eat it more often. NOPE! I had no clue where I would even start to learn how to make Indian food. I always heard it was difficult, so I never even looked at recipes. Then I went to India. It was awesome. The food was amazing. I picked up a Indian cookbook before I left. Still thinking that it was going to be too hard, the cookbook has sat on a shelf for 2 years and I have not attempted any of the recipes. Total fail on my part, I know.

Then my roommates and I had Indian food on my birthday and we talked about how much we all loved it and should try making it. So... this last Wednesday I finally attempted to make my first Indian dish. I thought I would start with the most popular. It turned out pretty spicy (as Indian food normally is) but the flavor was awesome and I loved it. I will make it again for sure but more mild next time. Megan was supposed to make the Naan, but ended up being too busy and went and bought it. I'm thinking I should try making that next. Anyway, now that I have made it and it was successful... I don't have to be  intimidated to make this dish or other Indian dishes in the future.  If you love Indian food and want to give it a try, here is the recipe that I used.

Chicken Tikka Masala

1 1/2 Lbs chicken breast, chopped into bite size pieces
1 cup plain yoghurt
2 Tbsp lemon juice
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp red pepper (put less to make more mild)
2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground ginger
1/4 cup cilantro
1 Tbsp unsalted butter
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 jalapeño, minced
2 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp paprika (leave out to make more mild)
1 tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp salt
1 can (8oz) tomato sauce
1 c heavy whipping cream
Put the chicken in a dish or large ziploc bag, and add all of the marinade ingredients: yoghurt, lemon juice, cumin, red pepper, black pepper, cinnamon, salt, & ground ginger.
Put in the fridge for 1-2 hours then discard the marinade.
Grill or cook the chicken in a high sided skillet until done, or no longer pink inside (about 8 minutes)
For the sauce
Melt the butter over medium heat. Add garlic and jalapeño and cook for 1 minute.

Add coriander, cumin, paprika, garam masala and salt. Stir to combine
Stir in tomato sauce and simmer for 15 minutes
Last step! Stir in the cream: 1 cup for hot-medium, 2 cups for medium-mild. 
Then serve with white rice and garnish with fresh cilantro

White Sheet Cake

So... I have kind of been on a cooking kick lately since I want to actually make all of these recipes that I  have pinned on pinterest. Friday I had nothing to do.... because it is winter and I'm depressed and don't want to do anything, so I decided to cook instead. I was actually quite content doing this. I made 3 different things, but right now I'm going to blog about the dessert. It was SOOOOOOO good. I first want to throw out that I don't like Texas Chocolate Sheet Cake. I don't know why... just don't like it. My mom made a Texas White Sheet Cake and I LOVE it. So I pinned this recipe on pinterest that I thought was the same as the white sheet cake that my mom makes. Turns out it is not the same, but still really good. My roommate Sarah and I may or may not have eaten almost the whole sheet cake by ourselves in 2 days. Oppps. I did give some away. Anyway, it was fast and easy and super good.

White Sheet Cake

1 c. butter
1 c. water
2 c. sugar
2 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. sour cream

1 c. butter
6 Tbl. evaporated milk
4 1/2 c. powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/8 tsp. salt
1 c. chopped pecans, opt.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Melt butter and water in a large saucepan over medium-low heat until butter is melted.  Remove from heat and stir in the sugar, flour, salt and baking soda.  Stir with a wire whisk until smooth. Add eggs and vanilla.  Stir in the sour cream and mix until blended.  Pour the batter into a well greased 11''x17'' sheet pan.  Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the cake springs back when lightly touched or a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.  Remove cake from oven and allow to cool slightly while you make the frosting.  Put the butter and milk into a medium saucepan.  Heat until butter is melted and bring to a simmer.  Remove from heat and stir in the powdered sugar, vanilla and a dash of salt.  Whisk until completely smooth.  Add nuts (if desired) and spread over cake.

Flashback Friday 101

Flashing back to December 2002 today. I had braces. Yuck. I was still living at home and had such a great group of girl friends that I hung out with. This is when I started becoming really good friends with Lolly... and we are still besties.

Anyway, we knew that we were all going to be going our separate ways that summer. Patty was getting married, Shawntel was getting married, Lolly was moving to Seattle, I was moving to Utah, Cheryl was getting married... so we had our friend Toby Emory take pictures of us. The last picture I still have framed in my room. These girls are dear friends and it was great start to my young single adult years. Love them.

Confessions of a Brunette on the Internet 154

This morning was SCARY!!! It was freezing rain. I think this is the first time I have ever experienced it, so it threw me off guard. I slipped and almost fell as soon as I walked out on my back patio this morning on my way into work. It was weird because it was a little warmer than it normally is and I felt rain drops. I figured that was a good sign... it meant things were going to start melting. And things were... but they were also freezing. What the... So my back patio was literally a thin sheet of ice. I just couldn't tell until I stepped on it. So then I get in my car and start to drive and I'm slipping around on the road. I'm about to leave the neighborhood and get on the main road and notice when I break my car was still sliding... so I turned into the curb to stop my car. This is when I knew it was going to be a scary ride. The rest of my drive was not too slippery... however the rain drops kept coming down and as soon as they would hit my windshield, they would freeze and I wouldn't wipe them off with my windshield wipers. It didn't take long before my whole windshield was just a sheet of ice and I couldn't see out of it anymore. This is when I started to get nervous. I had my defrost blasting and it cleared it up just barely enough by to get me to work. Freezing rain scares me... and I didn't even get the worst of it. There were SO many car accidents today. My co-worker Ron, his car spun around twice into on-coming traffic. It was a miracle he didn't get hit (thank goodness too since he recently had back surgery)  but after he got back on the rode... he saw 7 car accidents on his way to work from Orem to Provo. Life should be put on hold if there is freezing rain I have decided. Not okay.

The fort was up for two weeks. We had our Fort Finale on Sunday night. It went out with a bang. We announced it at ward prayer and lots of people came over (mostly guys) and we watched Ninja Warrior in the fort. It was pretty awesome. Ninja Warrior is pretty fun to watch... especially with a crowd. Turns out a guy in my ward is going to try and be on Ninja Warrior. Who does that? After everyone left, my friends Liz and Steph had a sleep over with me in the fort.... just like they did this summer. I loved it. There is something very comforting about the fort. I miss it already.

This week I had some left overs of the crock pot meal that I made and I shared it with my co-worker Lauren not knowing that she wouldn't have any lunch that day. Since I did that, last night she text me and told me that she was making soup and rolls and would have left overs and that she would bring me some today. She did and it was SO GOOD! I am liking this set up. Maybe we will keep it up and keep cooking for each other and bringing each other lunch. I love working with Lauren, she is my favorite.

I'm in trip planning mode. I mean, I guess I am always day dreaming of places I want to go and looking for deals and trying to convince people to travel with me. However, I'm in serious trip planning mode right now because it is so cold. Seriously... I feel the need to get away when it is so cold for so long because I start to get depressed and I need something to make me happy. Hopefully that is not a bad thing. I have a couple of trips in the works. Looking into it today was getting me really excited.

I tried another new recipe. Yesterday was my first attempt at making Indian Food. Of course to start off with I made Chicken Tikka Masala. I love Indian food, so I am surprised it took me so long to try and make it. I guess it always intimidated me because I figured it was hard to make with all of the different spices. It wasn't too hard though. I will make it more mild next time for sure though. It was a little on the spicy side. Still so good though. I will make it again. I love Indian food. I could seriously eat it once a week and be happy. I'm loving trying all these new recipes. I will have to blog about this one and try more!

You know how I made the goal to do more things that I pin on pinterest? Well... I have a board on pinterest called "OCD" for all things that have to do with cleaning and organizing (mostly organizing). Anyway.... I saw this one thing on there where someone used plastic place mats in their fridge to help keep it clean and it happens to look super cute too... so I decided to do it. I realized after that I should have gotten thinner mats and that I also could have found cuter mats that matched the kitchen better... but these turned out pretty cute too. Anyway... I cleaned out the fridge and put these mats in and I like it. I may change them in the future, but for now, this is good.

Plane Ride with Flying Jay

I have been blessed with many great friends. With having many great friends... every once in a while you have the benefit of some great connections that comes along with some of those friends. Last week I got to do something super awesome because of my friend Jay. Jay has been a good friend of mine for the past year. You may remember him from our four wheeling adventure date, or when we went scuba diving in the middle of nowhere Utah. Maybe you remember him from when we drove out in the middle of nowhere to watch the Solar Eclipse. He was DK in Mario Kart Live. He also helped teach me how to golf and we played summer softball together. Let's not forget the epic trip to Idaho that he planned and we even stayed with his family. The list goes on and on, the bottom line is that Jay is awesome and a great friend and we had a lot of fun adventures together in the last year.

Over the summer, Jay became a pilot! I know... awesome right? Well, Jay is getting married this weekend, but because he is such a good friend, he took me, Liz & Steph on a flight around Utah. We first went on a Saturday, but the weather was not great and we got a late start because of how the day was scheduled out and then the runway had not been plowed and our plane had to be de-iced which we had to do ourselves... so we didn't get to go far, but it was cool to see the city lights, especially with all of the snow. Since it wasn't long, Jay scheduled to take us the following Wednesday.

Unfortunately Liz couldn't come with us the second time. We were sad. Steph and I met up with Jay at the Spanish Fork Airport. I got to leave work early. This time I got to be up front with Jay in the 4 seater plane. I had never been in a plane that small before. I used to be so terrified of planes, but I wasn't really nervous at all for this flight. Although Jay's first solo flight was this last August... I totally trust him. He is one of those guys that is so confident in everything he does... that you just trust him.

It was a beautiful clear day and the flight was smooth. The view was incredible. I felt like I was on the Bachelor because they have all of those extravagant dates. I really felt so high class. Being up so high in the air in a plane so small doesn't seem real, especially when it is such a comfortable and smooth ride. It was amazing. I just kept saying how beautiful it was. We flew over Hobble Creek Canyon, up to Park city, over the mountains to SLC where we flew above the clouds. It was amazing. At the end of the flight, we even flew over Deer Haven (our home).

The whole flight was an hour or so. I loved it. So thankful that I had the opportunity to go and that Jay was so awesome and willing to take us. He really is such a great friend and I am going to miss him, but of course I am so happy for him and Sherstin. They are great together. Anyway, thanks Jay for an awesome year and ending it on this epic adventure.... and for being a great pilot and not crashing our plane. :)

By the way... Steph and I have both had the goal to document (video) our life more, so we both got video of this adventure and worked together to put this video together. Now you can experience the whole thing with us. Utah in the Winter is beautiful from the air.

Springville Art Museum Photoshoot

My BFF Neighbor and I like to take pictures. In December we Darrell suggested that we take it inside and we went to the Spingville Art Museum. It's a great Museum... but I never thought of doing a photoshoot there. Turns out, it was a great idea. Here are some of my favorite shots.

I love photography bonding time with my BFF Neighbor, Darrell.

Spinach Salad with Chicken, Avocado and Goat Cheese

The other that I made from my pinterest meal was this Spinach Salad. YUM!!! I LOVED it. I will make it again for sure. In fact, I had it not only for dinner that night but for lunch and dinner the next day. I love a good salad.

8 cups chopped spinach (1 bag)
1 cup halved cherry or pear tomatoes
1/2 cup corn (frozen, canned, or cut off the cob)
1 1/2 cups chopped cooked chicken
1 large avocado, sliced
1/3 cup crumbled goat or feta cheese
1/4 cup toasted pine nuts
3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste


1. Place spinach in a large salad bowl. add remaining salad ingredients.
2. In a small bowl, whisk together the dressing ingredients. Pour over the salad and toss (a little at a time... as much dressing as you desire).

30 Minute Rolls

Since one of my new year goals was to make more things that I pin on pinterest, I got really excited and decided to make a whole meal of recipes I pinned on pinterest. I made cilantro lime chicken in the crockpot, which didn't turn out that well so I won't make it again and won't blog about it. I also made a dessert that was supposed to be a chocolate mousse out of coconut milk... it was an epic fail so I didn't even serve it nor will I blog about it or make it again. The other two things I made were really good, so I will blog about it. I made dinner rolls that only take 30 minutes from start to finish to make. Impressive right? I love good things that can be made quickly. I already made them again after this dinner.  They are heavy... but they are good!

30 Minute Rolls
1 C plus 2 Tbsp warm water
1/3 C oil
2 Tbsp yeast
1/4 C sugar
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
3 1/2 C bread flour (seems to work better but all purpose flour will also work)
Heat oven to 400 degrees.
In your mixer bowl combine the water, oil, yeast and sugar and allow it to rest for 15 minutes.  Using your dough hook, mix in the salt, egg and flour.  Knead with hook until will incorporated and dough is soft and smooth. (Just a few minutes)
Form dough into 12 balls and then place in a greased 9 x 13 pan and allow to rest for 10 minutes.  Bake for 10 minutes at 400 degrees or until golden brown.

Flashback Friday 100

Today we go back to June 2004. I was home from Utah for the summer. My sister Lori was in charge of RS activities in the singles ward. We did lots of cool stuff like camping and making emergency kits for our car (mine is still in my car) and she also made a little Santa Barbara History book for us... which I also still have. Part of that history is the Santa Barbara Mission. So we went as a Relief Society to the Mission and hung out while we learned a little history. It was a fun summer. My dear friend Veda was home that summer as well.

Confessions of a Brunette on the Internet 153

Because of the Holidays and being sick... I am totally out of shape. This is bad news. The worst is when you worked so hard to get fit and strong...  and then a few weeks messes all of that up. Even zumba was a struggle for me today. Ugh.

Last Friday... a lot of my co-workers were gone and so they told the 3 of us that were at work that we could go see a movie if we wanted to. As it turns out, I was the only one that wanted to go see a movie... so I did. My myself. I had been wanting to see "Life of Pi" so I went and saw it... by myself... and I liked it. I liked going by myself and I liked the movie. The movie was beautifully done and it is one of those movies that makes you think about everything that happened in the movie long after the movie is over. I have no idea how it compares to the book... but the movie was great. Loved it.

Monday my friend Nicole did my hair again. I will not be getting my hair done again until after she comes back from maternity leave. So... we went back to all dark with a red undertone. I always like going dark, so I'm happy with it. Who knows what we will do next. Sometimes we don't know until I go in. Makes it kind of fun. I like switching it up.

As you know, one of my new years resolutions is to make more things that I pin on pinterest. SOOOOO.....  tonight I decided to make a whole meal of recipes I have pinned on pinterest. I made a cilantro lime chicken in the crock pot, homemade dinner rolls that only take 30 minutes to make from start to finish, a spinach salad and a chocolate mousse dessert. The cilantro lime chicken was ok, not great. I won't make it again. The salad and rolls were awesome, I will make them again for sure and the dessert was a disaster. I didn't get thick at all like they said it would. So I didn't even serve it and I will not make it again. A couple of my friends have suggested starting a new board on pinterest of things I have actually made and give a review on it so that other people know if it is worth making themselves. It's a good idea. So I started a new board and started giving my reviews if any of my pinterest friends want to check it out. I will also post the successful recipes that I try here on my blog.

Remember when I went to the Josh Groban concert? When I went to that concert I discovered how funny Josh is? For some reason it is really surprising because he is this classical singer. As it turns out, he has this hilarious sense of humor and I really want to be his best friend. We are about the same age, does that count for anything? Anyway... since his concert I follow him on facebook and Instagram. I guess the real place to follow him is on Twitter though... that is where most of his humor goes. I'm considering joining twitter just so I can follow Josh Groban. I'm being serious. Does that make me creepy?

Our stake president is the director over at the MTC. Since the announcement about the new age for missionaries at the last conference, there are A LOT more missionaries in the MTC. Just this week they got 600 new missionaries. That used to be the most they would get in the busy months, but now it is becoming the norm and they will just be getting more and more.  Since we just had our big fireside on becoming more healthy so that we can serve others... our stake president asked us if for family home evening, we would go help put together 900 bunk beds for the MTC. So off we went to the MTC. It had to be 0 degrees outside, or close to it. We had to go outside and carry the bunk beds in, piece by piece. The frames and pieces were so cold that I thought it was going to burn my hand. It took a little while and it was freezing, but we had a good turn out that came to help and it seemed like everyone had fun doing it. After all the pieces were in, we formed groups and put the bottom part of the bunk beds together in each room. Your welcome new missionaries. :) This is a picture we took after finishing the project.

Brrrr !!!!!

This is going on my 10 year living in Utah. Weird. Can you believe it? I can't. Out of all the years I have lived here, I don't think it has ever consistently been this cold. Worst winter ever! I guess it is making up for last winter... which was the warmest winter since I have lived here. Best winter ever!

You know it's cold when you start to think that 20 degrees is warm. Seriously. There was a day last week that was in the 20's and the sun was out and snow was starting to melt off of the mountains and the ice was melting off of the road where we could actually see the road again... the birds were chirping. It was awesome, just in time for it to dump more snow and freeze again. When the temperature is anywhere from -12 degrees to 10 degrees (if you're lucky) It was pretty funny to watch this video. Mean while in California...

Oh.... the life that I used to know. I used to be one of those people. Now... I'm feeling like I don't have to wear gloves or my heavy coat when it reaches 20 degrees outside. Getting the mail and jumping the trash has become a chore. You have to have a debate with yourself whether or not it is even worth it to go outside to do those things. There have been times where I have gone out to the mail in the literally freezing cold and all that we have in the mail box is some adds, or just one piece of mail and I ALWAYS think "oh man, that wasn't even worth coming out here for". ha ha. Pathetic, I know. I'm usually not this lazy... I think that is why I start to get depressed. I don't want to go anywhere or so anything when it is this cold outside. I just want to hibernate in my little fort cocoon for the winter. But alas... I have a job and a life to live. Here's to hoping I survive this freezing winter!

Novell Video's

So I recently mentioned that I have been in a couple of Novell video's. One of them I totally forgot about until I was looking for another one my friend Todd was in... and then I ran across it. I'm just working, but I'm there. Here is that video.

The other one is the video where I am an extra. Scott Christopher is the main guy. You may recognize him from all the Mormon movies, including The Best Two Years. I make a two second appearance where you can barely see my face at the very end of the video. Although I'm hardly in it. It was still fun to do and I would rather do that than sit in my office any day. :) There are three different video's included in this one video. Mine is the last one.

BYU Games

Lately, my roommates and I have been going to see some BYU games. Although I never attended BYU, it is still fun to go to the games. I even know most of the fight song after my many years of going to games. We went to the BYU Men's basket ball game. Days later we went to the BYU Men's volleyball game. Both games were dominated by BYU.

Most of all, I love hanging out with my roommates. They are the best.

Waterless Snow Globe

So one of my goals this year was to make more things that I pin on Pinterest. I saw tons of cute snow globes on jars this winter season. I really liked them all, but I really loved the waterless snow globe. I just did it simple. Just glued some little trees in two different sized jars and sprayed some snow on the jars and then filled it with artificial snow and glittery snow. They are simple, but I love how they turned out. Hooray for Pinterest.
