Girls Night Brownies

For tonight's girls' night in I decided to make some brownies for my lovely roommates. I decided to put the chocolate chips on top, adds a nice crunchy layer to the gooyness underneath :D 

New Obsession

 This semester so far I have definitely become obsessed with making fruit smoothies for myself and for my roommates. So, I decided to honor all of you with some steps that I take in my making of the smoothies. :D

This is how mine look before blending it all.
I love the layers that you can see.
You want one fully tray of fish ice.
Or the equivalent of about 4-5 regular sized ice.
I love my shakes with lots of fruit.
I get these bags of Wyman's frozen fruit because
they are super cheap and are frozen, so they last longer. 
Great way to add some liquid is with some juice either frozen concentrate
or from a jog like this.
I used lemonade this time because we need to get rid of this stuff.
I prefer frozen orange juice (no pulp), get some Vitamin C in there :)
To get my calcium I add some yogurt.
The best choice for this is Vanilla,
it's a simple flavor and will add lots of cream to the smoothie.
Like I said, I love my smoothies with lots of fruit,
I tend to put the entire apple in it, I prefer green.
Make sure you cut the core out, the blender can't get every bit,
you'll be stuck with bits of apple core in your teeth (true story)
You might need to move things around a bit.
And of course right after I took the last picture,
an air pocket hit and exploded on me.
I had a good laugh.
After blending, ready to pour. 
And Voila!
Enjoy a nice Summer Mixed Berry Smoothie :D

4th at the Dunes

Happy 4th of July Everyone!
This week for 4 days, it was only my roommate Katherine, and myself! Everyone else ditched and went to Utah! Oh well, there loss, kinda.haha. Alright, so for the BIG holiday we decided to just relax the entire day and then end it at the dunes nearby. From the dunes we were able to see the fireworks from the nearby city, Idaho Falls. Surrounding us at the dunes were quite a few little bonfire parties going on, we may or may not have crashed a couple of them. At the end of the crashing however we found the highest dune for the greatest view and set up camp. For our holiday dinner we had cherries, the kind with the pits in the them...I can't remember the actual name, but they were delicious! At the end of the night it was a really amazing time with one of my closest friends out here. 

Drew a scary face in the sand.
We were thinking Day of the Dead, what do you think?
 Spent the 4th of July with my roommate Katherine
The moon was BEAUTIFUL that night!

Flash was just a wee bit too bright for the dead of night.

Monkey Rock

For FHE my friends and I went to a place called Monkey Rock to swim and go waterfall jumping! It was a lot of fun, not all of us jumped, especially me, but still it was pretty awesome!
