The End of an Era....(and other exciting things)

I have big news....HUGE news...AMAZING news....Today was my last day of class....EVER!!! (at least at BYU).  That is right, I am now officially about to graduate!! And as exciting, crazy, stressful, and wonderful these past four years have been...I am still so excited to move on with my life (as a newly married woman) and explore the great wide world!  Before doing so, however, I wanted to post a bunch of pictures from the past couple of months to catch everyone up on what has been going on! ENJOY!
Ashley's "last meal" before going into the MTC was In & Out. We got to go with Stephen & Daniel (his identical twin) and it was delicious!! So delicious, in fact, that Ashley downed TWO hamburgers (one normal and the other animal style...I am so proud :)

Literally right before Ashley headed off to the MTC we decided to drop by the Provo, Temple for some last minutes photos!  Look how pretty my sis is!

Practically twins!

Raspberry and Spinach Salad

Hello! So sorry to have taken such a long break from the blog but sadly this semester wasn't as "easy-breezy" as one might have hoped.  But thankfully Monday and Tuesday are my last days of class EVER (until grad school) and so I thought this was a perfect time for us to start getting caught up :)  So much has happened over these past couple of months and I am so excited to tell you all about it! To kick us off, here is a fabulous salad recipe that is both quick and delicious!!

Raspberry and Spinach Salad
1 bag of spinach (feeds about 3-4)
1 container of raspberries
1/2 cup of slivered almonds or Pine Nuts
1 small red onion
Raspberry Vinaigrette (or dressing of choice)

Place the bag of spinach in a bowl.  Thinly dice the red onion.  Mix together with dressing.  Then in a small pan lightly toast the almonds/pine nuts (this should only take a few minutes or else they will burn).  For the finishing touch add a handful of raspberries on top and enjoy!! See? Super easy, healthy, AND delicious (a triple threat!!)
