'Arry Potter

Has anybody and/or everybody seen Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince? What did you think of it? If you haven't seen it, my suggestion would be either go see it or don't look at the comments page!

Random Pictures

Isn't he cute?

Us through a dog's eyes. I spy with my little eye... me and my cousin, Vanessa.


Zoomed in.

Aly's Recipe Corner (haha, the juxtaposition of "Aly" and "recipe" is funny)


No, this is not a classy recipe. Nope, it doesn't resemble gourmet in any way, shape or form. But it you wake up in the wee hours of the night craving this scrumptious offspring of cake and pudding, this single-serving sure does hit the spot!

Mix 1/4 cup sugar, 1/4 cup flour, 1-2 tbsp cocoa powder (depending on your chocolateyness preferences) and a generous pinch of baking powder in a cereal bowl, hot chocolate mug, spare vase, etc. Use a fork to mix and get rid of any lumps. Add a tbsp melted butter and 2 tbsp of milk. Fold in gently (the less stirring you can manage, the better). Nuke in the microwave for 1 to 2 minutes (this depends on if you are a gooey-chocolate-mess kinda gal, or a my-brownie-is-thoroughly-cooked-thank-you-very-much type person. Personally, I belong in the first category). Voila!

P.S.- Depending on how you guys like this, I might post some more recipes that I've messed with to suit my whims every once in a while. Let me know!

NYC and Braces

I got back from New York on Monday. It was Awesome!!!!!!!! We went to times square, central park, and the Museum of Natural History; and a ton of other cool places. We also saw the statue of Liberty. I have over 600 pictures, we should do something so I can show everyone, but I'm leaving Saturday to go camping, and won't be back until the next Saturday.

Highlights from Girl's Camp (w/ Amanda and Aly)(and Baylee)

*My dad came down Thursday. The first thing they did was sit him down and do his hair. They had those tiny neon bands...and my dad's hair is kind of long...His description was: "It looks like a have a ton of paintbrushes sticking out of my head."

*Baylee came up with a new insult: "Sausageface" Shortly thereafter, Sausage became (simultaneously, mind you) a term of endearment, an expression of disbelief, an exclamation of disgust, and a popular nickname.

*Carly (a.k.a. Carl's Jr.) and me (a.k.a. Da) came up with nicknames for everybody. Literally. They were way super random too. Like Aly was Lyx, but Alexis was Luke. Baylee was Leelee. We had a lot of those...Beebee, Deedee, Kyky, Linlin, Mimi, was weird!

*Our stake leaders rule. For the end of our Friday devotional, Sister Gift (stake YW pres) got up and goes: "Hmm...this won't do." Then, (I can't write this, it'd be like Ahahahah ahahahahah ahahahahahahah) she does the Enchanted thing. Where Giselle calls out to her animal friends...she sings, ya know. And then all the stake leaders get up and go ahahahahah (etc.) back, and they go: "Come my little friends, and we'll all sing a happy little good-bye song!" (instead of working) I have to tell you. THAT was hilarious.

Aly, was there anything else particularly good that I missed?

AP score!!

Ok, so mainly directed towards Amanda and Hillary....

What did you guys get?

Well, I guess that's all I have to say. I'm not gonna tell mine until someone tells theirs and I promise you I won't make it a story problem (Amanda... don't even think of making one!)
