Life Post-Spring Break

One of my favorite weekends of the year, General Conference, was the weekend at the end of my spring break.  Elizabeth and I listened to the Saturday sessions in the car on our phones driving back to Ohio, but it was kind of hard to hear and really pay attention to, especially while I was driving and trying to focus on the road.  So it just kind of threw off my whole "conference experience", but I can't wait to go back and study all the talks!! The talks I did hear however, I loved! Here are some of my favorite quotes from the talks:

This was my view for Sunday sessions of conference. Look at those cute puppy dog eyes. I think he missed me a little bit :) 

To celebrate (?) conference I made some brownies and happened to have some pop rocks that I thought I'd throw on top.  D- licious!! I really loved it! I like mixing unexpected flavors to spice up life a little bit. Literally in this case. hahahaha

National Sibling Day was in April, so I celebrated by posting a wedding picture on Instagram. Any excuse to look at wedding pictures right? ;) But I really do love all of my siblings and I'll take whatever excuse I can to say how much I love them! Like right now~ I love you siblings!! 

 I made Mother Peake soup for dinner one night for dinner (Thanks Clarissa Thomas!!) and it turned out really yummy despite my accidental usage of italian sausage instead of ground beef....oops! Another easy and yummy recipe for the books! 

Spring has definitely started to blossom, and I totally love it!! I love going on walks in the evening after work and soaking up some sunshine! The green grass and warm sun does wonders for my soul!

For date night one Friday night, we went out bowling with Kyle and Ashley and then chilled in their garage for a bit while Kyle fixed his motorcycle. It was a great night, even though I'm a really terrible bowler!

 I had Ashley give me a haircut at her new salon and she did a great job! I just had her trim it because I'm trying to grow it longer to make my hubby a happy Guy :) 

Later that day we went on a 12.5 mile bike ride.  It was a really nice day out, but we should have warmed up better to riding before we attacked such a long trail! It was a long ride, and luckily none of us were too terribly sore afterward! 

While driving home from bike riding, Tyler pulled over and had me take a picture of every cherry blossom tree we saw.  Silly boy....

(the best on that turned out...they were all pretty blurry or bad angles) 

I also whipped up a batch of Crandall's sugar cookies to bake on Sunday. 

They didn't turn out quite as good (I didn't have the Crandall magic touch :( ) but they were still good enough to eat! 

We also went and checked out Cox's Arboretum near downtown Dayton one lovely spring day.  It was a really beautiful (and free!) park! We are planning on going back more this spring and summer! 

(I totally love this Guy in a bow tie! So cute!) 

Tyler has been wanting sprouts SO bad for a couple of weeks, but hadn't been able to find them. We stopped at a Kroger one night and asked if they had any and the grocer told us that they hadn't sold them for about 2 years because they were carries of E. coli!!! What??? Who knew?? We were very sad.  But then (after inquiring on Facebook...) someone in the ward told us that Meijer still sold it and so naturally Tyler had to go and investigate. And they had it! Wahoo! Thanks Meijer for not being as paranoid as Kroger! ;) And Tyler got his sprout sandwich. The end. 

Spring decided to throw a curve ball and interrupt all our nice warm weather with an inch of snow.  Which didn't bother me too much because the one day of snow thing, I can totally handle because I know warm weather will be returning soon.  And I sure hope it doesn't take it's time! I need my vitamin D! Besides, hopefully the cold weather killed off a couple extra bugs that won't be bothering us this summer! Silver lining, right?
