I went camping one weekend. Despite fears about our lack of camping abilities, all things ended quite successfully. The tent was pitched in the dark. We made fantastic tin-foil dinners over our perfectly made campfire, along with a few gourmet s'mores. And we had were at a lovely overlook of the valley.
As we all know, I TA for a floral design class. This month we made pumpkin flower arrangements. And one, of the many, benefits of being a TA is that I get to enjoy all the flowers. AKA I get to make arrangements and take them home for myself. Or when I'm feeling generous I make bouquets and take them to other people.
I made the pumpkin on the left during lecture and we gave it to Norah because she has been sick. And my white pumpkin I took home and displayed it for all the world to see. Okay well just my roommates and their boyfriends.

And as for actual Halloween. First off, I am not a fan. It is a pointless holiday. Second off, I hate dressing up. For anything and that for sure didn't happen. So I hung out with Lauren all night. We made a delicious Onion and Ricotta Frittata for dinner. I ended up burning my hand pretty bad on the stupid pan. Who grabs a hot pan. Oh me. (The picture makes it look miniscule. I promise it was worse than it appears.) I also made pumpkin-chocolate cheesecake bars. We had to have some holiday spirit. To finish off our night we went to the Temple and did baptisms, there was barely anyone there. So we got through pretty fast. We started watching the first Harry Potter when we got home. I didn't make it very far, before I was out. Then Lauren being the responsible one made me go to bed. Good roommate right there.
|Took some extras to my fellow TA's the next morning.|
They enjoyed them.
Also today is November 1st. Making it my best friends birthdays. 21!
