Forever a Cougar

These days, unfortunately, the word "Cougar" can have quite the negative connotation. So when I happily proclaim myself as a Cougar forever, be assured I am a BYU Cougar forever! lol.

I have been obsessed with March Madness and with Jimmer. Paul and I went and played basketball yesterday morning (probably only the 3rd time in my life- I'm sports challenged) and the whole time I just wanted to play like Jimmer. It totally didn't work. I think my FG percentage was about 6%, and my 3-pointer percentage was definitely 0%.

While I was so sad to see BYU lose, I am so proud of their trek to the Sweet Sixteen and what a fun ride it was! We enjoyed their last game against Florida with our friend Becca and some BYU treats:

(Please note the cute apron above MADE by my friend Nikki! Such a fun present!)
(Please note the supportive husband above.)
FYI when trying to make blue cookies, use a recipe that uses shortening instead of butter. No amount of blue food coloring was going to de-greenify (thank you Wicked) these cookies.

:) I love me some food, friends, and Cougars!

Fitting in

I really like our new ward (church congregation). Although I must admit I have not found my niche yet and I look forward to the day where I feel like I fit in and I feel like I have something to contribute.

This past Sunday, one of the Primary (the children's Sunday School program) workers asked for a last-minute substitute for the 6 year-old class.

HEAVEN. They were angels. I TOTALLY fit in. Okay, so now can I do that every week? Please dear Bishop?
