Just thought you should know...

Most days....

We are nerds. But that's okay, because we love nerds.
This is the aftermath of Fundip. Remember that? We sure do!
Maybe we should grow up... but probably not. Life would be soo boring as a mature person.

That is all.

Spaghetti pie

Oh hello there!
Remember that time I burned my hand? Yeah, that time. I know I keep bring it up. But this will probably be the last time... hopefully.
Any way... when I burned my hand I was making Spaghetti Pie, a recipe my mom would make and we all loved.
So I made Spaghetti pie for the first time since the burn this last week. I was proud that I made it without burning myself this time. I'm pretty sure Aaron was surprised I got through it too. Of course I had to document such a feat.
Also I don't know if ya'll have heard of Spaghetti Pie before so I thought I should educate you in what it is. It's basically just what it sounds like. Pictures describe it better than I could though so here ya go:

Before cooking

After! Yumm-o. It has eggs and Parmesan cheese
in the noodle "crust" to hold it together. Sooo tasty.

Playing a little game of catch up.

I guess I should finally put the pictures from Easter on here. First I'll tell you what we did. Saturday we were going to dye eggs together but after conference, shopping, eating out with Aaron's family, and making frog eye salad to take for dinner the next day, we ran out of time. So the plan was to do it Sunday. Sunday morning turned out to be a lot busier than planned. After making breakfast, finishing the frog eye salad, and the morning session of conference, it was time to get on the road. We decided to go to my dad's house for Easter since my family still makes a pretty big deal out of Easter. It was a fun time. We ate dinner, then had an Easter egg hunt. I am the youngest of my three brothers, then there are my step siblings, which there are five of. There are two that are younger than me, one by just a few months, and one that is 18. So we are all adults, Maybe a little to old for Easter egg hunts.... but we all had a good time. All of us, even my cute little grandma Lucy were running around the house like children getting our eggs. There were really only two kids in on the hunt, and only one of them was old enough to walk or really even care about it. So it was a house full of adults enjoying being kids again. We got 5 eggs of candy and 1 with different amounts of money in it from 2 to 5 dollars. Aaron won big with a fiver and I lost with only two. It was a good time. I really loved seeing my nephews. Carter is going up so fast and is adorable. Too bad he still cries every time I hold him. Max is way too old and needs to stop growing up. He's a little smarty pants.
We were having a good time and didn't end up getting home till it was too late to dye the eggs. So we didn't get our eggs dyed till the day after Easter. haha but it was still fun! I am still a kid at heart, so I love doing things like that. Aaron calls me "youthful" which is a nice way of telling me I'm immature. :)
Here are pictures of our egg dying:

Umm how cute is he? Aw! And look, No beard!

These are our eggs. Aaron got creative and drew all over his.
They look pretty nifty too. Mine are the plain boring ones :)

That is all.

One month

One month from today we will be on an air plane headed to Virginia! My brother is graduating from medical school there. We will also drive up to DC and see all the sights there. We'll be there for one week. The last time I went to Virginia was for my senior trip. It was a ton of fun! That is the only other time I've been on an air plane. I'm so excited! Real vacations are a pretty big deal for me since my family didn't really have any. This is sure to be a great trip! My brother and sister-in-law are very entertaining, and it'll be the first real trip with my lovely husband. I don't get to see my brother very often since he lives so far away. He'll be doing his residency in Alaska, so not really much closer, but a great vacation spot none the less :) We only get to see them about 2 times a year normally. I got to see them quite a bit last year since we all decided to get married with in 4 months of each other. What a crazy year!
Well, I just wanted to tell ya'll how excited I am.
That's all.

Double Coupons? Yes please!

Here's another good deal for ya'll to partake in.
As if coupons weren't the best thing ever invented by themselves, this week is double coupon week at K-mart!!!
Meaning, you take in your regular old coupon and the price of it gets doubled $1 off = $2 yada yada. They will do this for any MANUFACTURER coupon up to and including $2 in value. So $4 off one item max. However you can only use it for five things a day. Also, it can't be the same thing twice in a day. You do have to sign up for there savings card to get it to work, but that's free and only takes 2 minutes. If you already have the savings card, then you just have to take it with you. This will not work for K-mart's coupons they send out. Only Manufactured ones.
Want a huge amount of coupons so you have some to take to K-mart everyday this week? Use these websites for free printable manufacturer coupons:
with some of these coupons you can use them to get things for free when doubled. Have I mentioned I love free? :)
Here is a website to go to to get a $2 women's dove deodorant that if you take in to K-mart this will make it FREE! :)
How cool is that?
This goes till Saturday!
Now, go to K-mart and save a bundle!
Have fun!
Love love love love love!
That's all.
