I actually got this recipe from cousin Claire!! :)
We did 4 main dishes:
2. Panda Express Orange Chicken
4. Fried Rice
When Nick served his mission here in Las Vegas, he met the sweetest and kindest family, the Geworski's. Nick baptized the mother of the family, Laura, as her daughter, Ashley, was already baptized. Nick became great friends with the family and even today, they call to "check up" on us and have us over for dinner all the time.
Crazy thing happened while we were there... we met a guy named Ryan (whose wife and 2 kids names I cannot remember) who asked where we were from... we said small town in Wyoming. He asks what's it called. We tell him Lovell. Then he asks us if we know the Crosbys. :) Of course we know them, I worked for them for years and Nick helped them around the farm. Ryan and his wife went to school in Arizona with Chris and Crystal Crosby!! It's a small world!! :)
SPRING BREAK SUCCESS
Some of you may remember my "to do" list for Spring break. Well I got MOST of those things done on that list... I did a lot of sleeping in, watching movies, and spending time with Nick. But I also completed:
1. Addie's surprise package...
a book, a jacket for her spring walks and more hair things!! :) flowers made out of fabric!!!
(if anyone is interested in knowing how to make these or wanting some yourself, let me know)
2. 50+ Mother's Day Cards for Young Womens Camp Fundraiser:
3. Successful Stampin' Up Party at my house! Of course I have No pics of this either... camera was STILL dead and I ran out of time to get batteries! :) We had lots of fun with good food and had a great turn out too!! THANKS EVERYONE!!
BACK TO SCHOOL
Now were back in school and only have 6 weeks left!!! WOW... its been FLYING by so fast, and its a good thing too, we're SO excited to be able to see all of our families SOON!! Last week in Nick's Fire class he got to put out car fires and a "bon fire" as well. He loved every minute of it. Hes been studying and preparing for his fire tests this summer in Montana and is looking forward to that.
I am trying to keep up with all the school work and internship hours. It's crazy that I'll be done with school so soon. You would think after 5 long years I would want to be done and just stop with the schooling, but guess what?? I found an Online Interior Design Bachelors Degree program through The Art Institute of Pittsburg Online Division!!!! I know, I know... 5 years in school and I STILL don't have a bachelors??... things never goes as planned and between back surgery and a degree change, here I am with two Associates degrees and thats it!! I have always wanted to finish online, so that I could get a job now and finish up as I go... well, NOW this is possible. I have looked and looked for online Interior Design programs but NO ONE offered them until NOW!!! So crazy as it is, I applied for the school and sent all my transcripts in to see what credits they will accept. If everything goes as planned, I will probably begin that program within the next year. Never stop learning and progressing, right? :)
