Box Mix!

Okay so acually the french doughnuts are a box mix, but I did still make them. They are from Cafe du Monde which is a wellknown french cafe in New Orleans. You can get the mix online at and it is called beignet mix. Sorry to dissapoint those that thought I did it from scratch, but they were still tasty. I have an obssession with the food channel and travel channel and these were shown on both and they looked so scrumptious. Anyway I will stop blabbering now.

So the other night I made beignets wich are a french doughnut. They kind of looked funny but they were sure tasty. The recipe said it made 24 and we ate every last one. We talked about talents and the kids said mine was baking, because the beignets were so good. I thought that was cute. They were sure messy but we had lots of fun eating them.

Apple Annie's

Yesterday I went with Brenna's kindergarden class to a apple orchard. On the way I remember why I don't like going on field trips, "the bus ride". It was awful. Anyway we rode a hayride to pick the apples and then had lunch, went to the bakery and got some apple butter. All in all it was a good day, nice to spend time with Brenna, she is my little peanut. I tried to take a few pictures of just Brenna or just Brenna and I and the little girl that was with us would not get out of any of them, so needless to say she is the one in the background and wouldn't let me take one of just Brenna, oh well maybe next time.

Early Annniversary!

So Nathan and I decided to go to Scottsdale for a early anniversary. We left Thursday morning and went to a temple session. It had been a while since we had gone together. After that we checked into our resort and relaxed for a while. We decided to go to Mexican for dinner since we don't have good Mexican food in S.V. We went to a place called Garduno's, yummy. It is still really hot in Scottsdale, so we took a dip in the pool for a while. We didn't have to worry about getting burned late at night either. The next morning we went to the pool and hung out for a while, it was already getting hot at 9am(yuck). Then I went to get a haircut at a place called Sachi, I have been there before and I really liked them, even though I can never get my hair to look like they did it afterwards. We went over to my favorite mall, Scottsdale Fashion Square and ate lunch and shopped a little ( I love that place). I have been dying to go to this cupcake place called Sprinkles, they were so good, now I can finally say I have gone. I contacted a few friends we hadn't seen in like 8 years and met up for dinner Fri. night at Macaroni Grill. It was nice to catch up with them and see how they are. They are such a fun couple. Then we went back to our room and hung out a while and went to sleep, it was nice to be able to sleep in for a couple days. On the way home we stopped by some friends to see their new baby. Sat. we got home at about 2 and picked up all our munchkins at the grandparents, thanks so much to all of them for helping us out and letting us enjoy our little getaway.
