lovely morning.

I have to say I am a COMPLETE morning person...
and today has been quite pleasant already.
I woke up at about 5 a.m. with tons of thoughts running through my head.
I couldn't fall back asleep, so I woke B up and we talked for about an hour.
(i'd say i've definitely got a keeper)
He told me that he wanted to go get donuts to eat before conference this morning,
from our FAVORITE place-
Daylight Donuts.
I could tell he was still exhausted from me waking him up,
so i decided to take a little morning drive,
and told him to go back to bed.
When I left the house it was still pitch black.
I drove there with the radio off, said a prayer and just reflected on life.
It was wonderful.

The best part about being there early was that I had TONS to choose from. 
They were nice and warm out of the oven.

{As you can tell, B and I are in love with donuts.
They will forever be a staple in our home.}

When I got back,
B and Preston were still zonked out.
(Branson's little bro has been visiting us this week)
So, I decided to go to the gym.
I got a great workout in and then decided to snap a few pictures of these beautiful blossoming trees.
Spring has finally arrived!

We just indulged in our delicious donuts.
(And yes, for all those who know i'm not eating sweets till Easter- I CHEATED!)
And I don't feel bad about it.

Now I'm off to watch General Conference and be uplifted.

What a wonderful start to my day.

Happy Conference Weekend!

I saw this car parked on campus the other day and was in shock.  
HOW do people LIVE like this!?

I feel sorry for the owner of this van.  I can only imagine what their house looks like. GAG.

At least it's important stuff...
Back massage cushion.
Printer paper.
Some stuffed animals.

Ya know, all the necessities.

Our good friend Amber took some pictures of us to send out with our graduation announcements a while back. (Which she helped design, too!- Thanks girl!)  
She did such a great job and we literally only had like 20 minutes to do the shoot.   
She sent me a few so I thought I'd post them :)

I'll post our actual announcement soon once they are all sent out :)

As you can tell my constant posts about graduation shows my excitement and eagerness to be DONE!.

count down.

I am counting down the days until graduation...25 days! Both of our families are coming down and I am so excited to have everyone here. BUT, the fun doesn't end there.  The day after graduation we will celebrating in paradise....

We got an AMAZING deal from Living Social.  We are staying at the Grand Riviera Mayan hotel in Cancun, Mexico.  The deal was $250 dollars for both B and I for six nights, seven days.  Plus we get $200 in vouchers to spend on food/drinks/ that a deal of a lifetime or what?  We were pretty pumped about it.  We are going with some of our favorite people who are graduating as well and we couldn't be more excited. 25 days until graduation. 26 days until vaca. YESSS!

Every day I keep telling myself I need to blog, 
but when it comes to it....
I got nothin.  
We have actually had a ton going on and recent events that I should be posting about, BUT I just don't seem to have it in me.  
Even though I'm so sick of looking at that cake that comes up on my blog every time I open it (aka my previous post from WAY too long ago), it's not motivating enough.  
So, this is my apology (for those who even care).  
I'll get better soon.
