Feng Shui, mushrooms, love, and life

5 things:
1.  As many of you may know, I have always been very intrigued with energy.  I love learning about the energy patterns in our bodies and how movement, objects, and food affects it.  Fung shui has been a curiosity that I've been dying to learn more about.  Thanks to the good old Provo library, I've been reading up on it and am wanting to work on feng shuing my life, if you will.  My goal is to start in my dorm room and spread from there.  Hopefully I can report my progress in a few days. :)  Peace and blessings!
2.  5Also, I realized that I rarely talk about the most exciting thing that is occurring in my life and that is my relationship with Jesse.  What a sweetheart!  We have been trying to make some rather large life decisions and of course, I always end up super emotional and kindof crazy, and he is so patient and sweet.  I am the luckiest girl in the world!

Us right after his marathon last year :)
3.  The Salt Lake City mission is the greatest one in the whole world.  Maybe I'm biased, but if it wasn't for that, I would have never met this adorable little girl.  She is a refugee from Burma and her parents are tying to make a better life in America.  I'm so proud of them and how hard they are working.  If you could remember to keep the refugees in your prayers that would be great!  Jesse was working with this girls family 2 1/2 years ago and is still teaching them.  


4.  Stuffed Mushrooms???  Ok so I had never ever heard of these until my super cute new roommate Sarah introduced me yesterday.  AMAZING!!!


  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions
  • 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 20 fresh mushrooms, stems removed
  • 1 pound sliced bacon, cut in half
  • Directions

    1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
    2. In a medium bowl, mix together the green onions and cream cheese . Stuff mushroom caps with the cheese mixture. Wrap each mushroom with a half-slice of bacon, and secure with toothpicks. Place on a baking sheet.
    3. Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until the bacon is cooked through.

    Thank you
     for all of your continual inspiration!

    5.  Sundays are the best day of the week.  For those of you who don't know, I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  Today we learned about personal revelation, and I am soooo grateful that God loves me enough that He allows me to pray to Him and that He listens to me and sends me answers and guidance to my life.  :)
    Love Carl Bloch btw.  I'm so sad that the exhibit is gone from BYU.  It was amazing and touched me every single time I went through.  Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Wheatley!!!!
