At least once a week I walk to the BYU candy counter in the bookstore and spoil myself with a little treat. I ask for a small handful of dark chocolate almonds, Jordan almonds, and chocolate Jordan almonds all in the same bag. I love this treat. It brightens up my day and helps with my energy during the all day study sessions. What is your favorite treat?

This candle makes your room smell like summer in the middle of winter. It smells delicious and fruity. The smell makes me happy. I cannot be mad when my guava passion fruit candle is smelling up the room!

I am a regular at sonic between the hours of 2 - 4! I drive to the local sonic right around the corner and get a route 44 diet dr. pepper with a little bit of vanilla and cherry. I pay $1.08 for the monstrosity of the drink. Oh how great it is! I love happy hour! Do you like happy hour at sonic?

That huge cupcake was a dream come true. My sister got it for me for my birthday party! It was delicious. I ate the entire thing by the next day! Yes it is as big as my face ... no big it was worth it. Every bite was soooooo good! I would eat another one if it I had one. I think I might be in love with yummy treats. Is that bad?

I am going to begin this post by saying I have been so blessed. My back is so doing really well. I can go to the gym, I only occasionally get soar. My health is doing well too. I do not have anymore nasty rashes and I do not get fevers anymore. I am able to go to class, study, and act more like me. The only down side is the annoying sinus infection.
I went to the ear nose throat doctor today and they ran tests, x-rays, and asked a billion questions. I explained where it hurt and how I wake up in the middle of the night coughing and gagging (yes I know a lot of information but just imagine having this since October). The doctor then prescribed me a steroid and antibiotic to take for the next two weeks or so. (I am secretly hoping that I get a six pack by the end of the treatment). I am hoping and praying that this will make me better.
I am not sad about this experience and any of my health problems over the past six months or so. I think that sometimes you are blessed and learn the most when you have trials. I feel so humbled by everything that I have been through. I am so grateful for how much I have been blessed. I know that Heavenly Father has been with me every step of the way. I know that my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ knows the pain that I have felt, He knows and loves me. Every night and morning I pray and thank my Heavenly Father for the love that I have felt throughout my life, for the love that my parents have for me, for the love that my siblings have, for the amazing people that have been put in my life, for the Bible and Book of Mormon, for the opportunity to serve others, for the Temple, for being able to have a job,for being able to go to BYU, to be able to express my feelings and believes freely, to be able to work out again, and so many more pathetic reasons. I know that eventually I will get better, until then I am going to be patient and be me.

I woke up and looked out my window this morning to see a thin sheet of white blanketing the rooftops and sidewalks. The sun was shining reflecting the purity of the freshly fallen powder. As I drove to campus the sun began to melt the snow revealing patches of green grass and maroon bushes covering the campus grounds. The snow fell rapidly from the limp tree branches. The trees look old and weak without their leaves. They wait patiently for their blossoms to come and to add a splash of color to their dull appearance.
I am impatiently waiting for the trees to blossom, for the grass to be green, for the sun to shine, and for flip flops to be the primary shoe being used from my wardrobe. Oh how I love spring. I love the hope that it brings. I love how the pastel colors slowly transition you into the bright colors of summer. I love how the snow is still on the tops of the mountains but the colors shine brightly in the valley. I am so excited for spring!

I just had my birthday and it was great! I turned the big 21! I was woken up by two of my roommates and some adorable girls in my ward who made me a delicious breakfast! They are so nice! I had treats all day and officially gained 10 pounds but it was worth it! I had such a great birthday! I just wanted to say thank you so much!
