My parents went to Vegas for some days (4). I ran the house. So with the taste of freedom in my mouth, I took over the kitchen and made a cake (hence the Halloween cake in the previous post). But there was lots of extra frosting and I couldn't just throw the extra frosting from the Halloween cake away. And since Mom was gone, I could make yet another mess in the kitchen ;) So...I decided what better way to use up the frosting than to make sugar cookies? Afterall, I knew the girls would love to decorate cookies, and why not make them happy? Then with a little luck and lots of phone calls to Mom, the cookies came to be. I then proceeded to color the frosting various shades of Halloweeny colors. Here was the beginning product (lovely cookies might I add):

Here is the end product:

I love to bake..and decorate. What better way to combine the two than in a cake? Or...two cakes. This one was for my boss's birthday. A friend helped me decorate.

This one was all me: I did everything (even came up with the idea in my noggin). It is a Halloween cake if you can't tell (but it doubled as my birthday cake). The tombstones are made with mint Milano cookies...Goodness gracious I love those things!

The Other Half of My Busy Day

I went to Seussical the Musical. It was way fun! I was kind of wary at first, but I ended up loving it! Pictures hopefully to follow, but it was definitely worth going to. For those of you who don't know, the story line goes as follows:

Based on the beloved characters and stories of Dr.Seuss, this musical incorporates elements from at least 15 Dr.Seuss books and includes appearances by many of his most famous characters. Seussical the Musical follows the adventures of Horton, an elephant who one day hears voices coming from a speck of dust. He soon discovers that within this tiny speck exists the smallest planet in the universe! And upon this tiny planet live a tiny raceof creatures known as Whos! Although ridiculed by the other animals in the Jungle of Nool for believing insomething he cannot see, Horton stubbornly persists in his belief that the Whos exist.
Meanwhile, the citizens of Who are having some adventures of their own, including a war over which side of the bread gets buttered. Jojo, the smallest child in the city of Who, parallels Horton's journey as he is ostracized for the unpopular act of thinking -- an activity not encouraged by the parents and teachers of Whosville. But in spite of these obstacles, Jojo and Horton attempt to do what they think is right, and together they sing the duet "Alone in the Universe." However, their path will not be easy. Horton is sold to the Circus McGurkus and eventually goes on trial before Judge Yertle the Turtle before the other animals of the jungle come to understand, as Horton has always known, that "a person's a person, no matter how small." (thank you

Anyway, it is a way cute play and one I would absolutely see again

Body World

October 11 was a busy day for me. I went to Body World in Salt Lake City. It was pretty crazy! Have you ever seen a naked person not even wearing their own skin? It is weird, wild, and wacky. Let me show you some pictures (I didn't take the photos- no photography thanks to various sites).

A camel:

The peripheral nervous system:

The Cycler:

The Hurtler:

The Archer:

The blood vessels: (this one is awesome in person)

Guess What

I went to the firestation today for fun. I learned a lot. Guess what else...I still am not sure what career choice is the right one. That is all, over and out

My Life Dilemma

Ok. Trauma nurse? or EMT? or trauma nurse? or EMT? Since 7th grade I have wanted to be an EMT (emergency medical technician). Then I decided that EMT hours were not ideal. So then I turned to nursing and I did an internship in the ER at the hospital. Then I went to college and here I am. Up until recently I was okay with being a trauma nurse. It wasn't a first responder, but it was a next-to-best thing. In fact, being a trauma nurse was starting to sound rather nice. But now I am not so sure. Almost daily I hear sirens, and they pull at my heartstrings like nothing I've known. Everytime I hear sirens I just feel a pang of longing and I want to follow the sirens. I don't know why, it isn't something I can control. I just really really want to be an EMT. And don't think I haven't considered ways of getting an ambulance to come to me. If there is one thing that would distract me enough for me to get in a car accident, it would be an ambulance.
So what do I do? Tomorrow a local firestation is having an open house. I am going of course. This is like Christmas coming early!

A Great Experience

Today at work I had a really neat experience. A young man came in with another man who was both physically and mentally challenged. I helped the young man and then I turned to help the man in the wheelchair. The first thing he did was stick out his hand and say he wanted to shake mine. He asked my name and told me I was beautiful. I asked his name and we had a short conversation. He then proceeded to order and when I had handed him his food, he told me I was awesome. Minutes later as I was getting off my shift, I walked by their table and he waved goodbye to me. What an amazing person for so readily accepting me even though he didn't know anything about me. I wish everyone was like that. He is by far one of the coolest people I have ever had the priviledge of meeting, and I won't soon forget him....

Some kid in my nutrition class just belched like nobody's business. I am currently cracking up


But I am a college student. Cut me some slack! I can't post about every little thing in my life. Anyway, half of it is boring boring boring. Well, Halloween is quickly approaching! I went shopping with Cara to buy decorations for our store. I am so excited! We bought 800 feet worth of spider web, spiders, ghosts, bats, candy corn, orange lights, and chinese lanterns. We are going to buy pumpkins and paint them for the store. Pictures to follow. You will love it and then you will request me to be your next designer.
