"What's your aspiration in life?"
Audrey: To be truely loved. 
Haley: To be a trophy wife.

Well in all actually my latest aspiration is to run a half marathon. When will this take place? Good question. But, I'm thinking sometime this summer. Whoever reads this needs to understand  that I barely can run 3 miles for my life. But hey, we all need to do something impressive to ourselves right? So from now now I'm training for this 1/2 marathon, which WILL happen.

oh yeah and ps. Kelly Ripa is my idol.

utah thrills.

This past weekend was a long weekend for us because we had Monday off, which I must say was quite nice. So in honor of the long weekend, Alex's 23rd, and just to visit some friends I took off to Utah for the weekend. We drove out there Friday and came back Sunday morning, so it was a short trip but a good one. Here's some pictures of the trip. The odd part is that on the way down there Makelle and I talked about taking tons of pictures. I think I took maybe 7... that's a problem. Ha, oh well. I have good memories of the trip. Most favorite one might be Alex's dance/yoga lessons for Cameron and I.. at 3:30 am.
All in all I love my Morgan boys. And I loved this weekend, I can't wait to live within five minutes from them again.

these are cool.

So I listen to pretty much any and every type of music, I know this is very mainstream. But I thought it was cool, it's the top 25 songs of 2009. And the second one is the top 25 from 2008. Love it.

a change in my life.

Lately, I've been thinking about what I'm doing with my life and if staying in Idaho was a good idea. As of today I have decided that I am moving to UTAH and am going to attend Utah Valley University in the fall. Life will be bliss. So long Rexburg.

In need.

I'm in need of this summer. I recently decided that I'm going home to California for the summer as opposed to staying here in Idaho due to some circumstances. But all in all, I am very ready to have a summer at home full of sun and trips. Plus, who wouldn't want to wakeboard and see their favorite people all day. I know I would.

Abi & I have been quite the cooks. But, seriously. So I know this post will be long, but these recipes that we have personally tried are to die for.

Pumpkin Spiced Cream Cheese Breakfast Rolls

2 packages/cans Pillsbury Crescent Rolls

4 0z cream cheese, softened

1/4 Cup brown sugar

1/4 Cup canned pumkin (Libby’s)

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon fresh ground nutmeg

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Unroll crescent rolls to form 4 rectangles placed side by side. Pinch seams together to form one long rectangle. Place cream cheese, brown sugar, pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg into a mixer; beat until well combined. Spread mixture over crescents leaving a 1/2 inch border around edges. Starting at long end, roll up then cut into 1 inch pieces. Place around 2 9 inch cake pans that have been sprayed with cooking spray. I left the centers open so the rolls form a circle.

2. Bake for 28-30 minutes or until rolls are golden brown. Remove and let cool for 10 minutes. Frost warm rolls with cream cheese frosting recipe below.


4 oz softened cream cheese

1/2 Cup powdered sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1 Tablespoon canned pumpkin (Libby’s)

1. Mix all ingredients into a large bowl until smooth. Spread over warm rolls.

(These were so yummy, and they were actually made when I was at home for Thanksgiving.)

Slow Cooked Green Chili Pork Tacos With Fresh Corn and Olive Salsa

3-4 lb Pork Butt

2 Tablespoons Worchestershire sauce

1 Tablespoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper

1/2 teaspoon Lawry’s Garlic Salt with Parsley

1 bottle Herdez Tomatillo Salsa (mild green salsa)

1. Place all but salsa into a crockpot on low heat for 6-8 hours. I usually cook overnight, so longer is just fine too. Remove pork from liquid, discard or save liquid for another use. Shred pork into small pieces, return back to crockpot and add salsa. Cook on low until ready to serve. Serve in soft tortilla bread or regular corn tortillas along with fresh corn and olive salsa below and avocado mash.

Fresh Corn and Olive Salsa

3 ears of corn, corn removed

1/2 Cup sliced black olives

1/4 Cup fresh chopped cilantro

1 large red bell pepper, diced

2 Tablespoons diced red onion

Pinch of Kosher Salt and Fresh Cracked Black Pepper

1. Place all into a large bowl; stir to combine. Serve with tacos.

Avocado Mash

2 ripe avocados

Pinch of salt and black pepper

1 Tablespoon fresh lime juice

1. Mix all ingredients into a bowl and mash with fork until well combined. Spoon over tacos.

Balsamic Grilled Bruschetta Chicken

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, thawed (I use the big Costco bag)
Pinch of salt
¼ Cup balsamic vinegar
¼ Cup extra virgin olive oil
8 slices fresh mozzarella cheese

4 Roma Tomatoes, seeded and diced
8 fresh basil leaves, stacked, rolled and thinly sliced into chiffonade
3 cloves fresh garlic, minced
Pinch of salt
1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar

1. Preheat a grill pan over medium heat on the stovetop. Spray with cooking spray. Combine balsamic and olive oil in a bowl. Season both sides of chicken with pinches of salt and place on grill. Brush top sides of chicken with balsamic mixture. Cook for 4-5 minutes and flip chicken. Brush with additional balsamic and cook for an additional 4-5 minutes or until cooked through. During the last 2 minutes of grilling place 2 slices of cheese over top each chicken to melt.

2. In a large bowl combine the tomatoes, basil garlic, salt and balsamic. Toss gently to combine. Place chicken breasts on a serving plate and top with tomato mixture. Serve warm.

gym time.

This morning it took everything in me to go to the gym and run. And you know what? It turned out to be worth it, I ran two miles without stopping. This might not seem like a feat to you, but it was to me. Let's be motivated for summer shall we.And let's just say my goal is to run 4 miles without a single stop. One day, before the end of the semester. ps. for the picture above.. I will one day have that motivation.
