The 5-Leaf Clover

You know those sacrament meetings when you're trying to focus on the things that are being said, but for whatever reason you can't focus? That was me today! I even got my notebook out to take notes, but I ended up doodling instead! I just kinda started drawing nothing in particular, and then my roommate, Christy, leaned over and said, "that looks like a 5-leaf clover!" This is what that doodle turned into....
...and yes, I did sign and date it. It's art.

Little Slice of Spring!

It's starting to look a little more like spring around here! I looked out the window this morning to see what the weather was like, and I was surprised to see all of the blooms on the's so nice to see everything coming to life! Supposedly, we're supposed to have a slushy-snowy-rainy mix tonight...I'm praying for no more snow!

Other signs of spring:
*tulips are blooming
*sprinklers watering the lawns
*longer nights
*crazy weather
*birds, butterflies and bugs everywhere!

Happy Saturday!

So Traci and I kind of had a little change of plans...we ended up not doing anything on that list that I made yesterday of things that we were going to do! Instead, we hung out at her house for a little while and Katie and Joe came over to play for a few minutes. Then we made it back to my place, where we got all ready for our sleep over and turned on Traci's favorite movie: High School Musical 2! She knows all the words to all the songs! This morning, we got up and did a few Saturday morning chores around the house and then went to the store to get some things so we could plant flowers for my little balcony! Traci was such a big help!

Funny story: when we were at Lowe's this morning, I told Traci that she could go over and look at the fountains while I waited in line to pay. A minute later, the emergency alarm is going off and Traci comes running back over to me with a sad look on her face. It turned out that Traci was trying to help a butterfly get outside, so she opened the emergency door to let it out! Needless to say, I think she was a little embarrassed, but we fixed the situation by stopping by Chili's on the way home and getting some strawberry lemonade! Never underestimate the power of a good lemonade!

Week in Review...

It's been a crazy busy week! Here it is in review:

Monday: This is what I woke up to! I'm ready for winter to be over and summer to be here! I was tempted to get back into my warm bed and take the day off from work! I left for work at my usual time--about 7:55 and typically get to work at about 8:00. I live maybe 2 miles from work. My five minute "commute" turned into an hour and 15 minutes! As I turned onto University Parkway, I quickly realized I should have taken a different route to work...there were several cars that were stuck driving up the hill and had to get towed, causing a major backup. Don't worry car was a champ and made it all the way up the icy hill!

That night, I met up with Erin at Ikea for dinner and some shopping! It was fun to meet up at our of our favorite stores! 

Tuesday: April Fool's Day! We (meaning us at work) *might* have put our boss' car up for sale on Craigslist! It was soo funny! She got several calls throughout the day about her car and could not figure out who posted her car for sale until...

Wednesday: I confessed that it *might* have been my idea to put it up for sale! She couldn't stop laughing! I think she accused everyone else of being the one to put it up, but she never suspected that I could have been the one!

Thursday: Finished working on the Wedding and Heritage line at work...I'm really excited about how they turned out! I'll post pictures later...

After work, I headed up to Bountiful to do a wedding announcement for my friend's brother and then down to the Gateway in Salt Lake to meet up with Erin for dinner and some more shopping!

Friday: I stayed at work late to get the wedding announcements printed. I got home at about 8:30, put pjs on, put the announcements together and went to bed! So exciting for a Friday night, huh?

Today and Tomorrow: General Conference! I love going to the Conference Center to watch Conference, but it's also nice to be able to watch it at home, and that's what I'm doing this time around!
