Is anyone else out there sick of avocados? I realize this is a slightly weird way to start a post but...slightly weird is kind of who I am as many of you know!
drawn by yours truly

I recently bought about 4 avocados (because they were on sale at Kowalski's) thinking that I could make something with them or add them to my recipes. What I realized after eating half of one is that I am sick and tired of them! For a long time I was obsessed with them. I put them on toast, I ate them plain, I used them in puréed sauces...blah blah the list goes ON! But they are really bland. And I have been craving flavor lately. So I'm saying goodbye to avocados until further notice. Why so drastic? Because when it comes to food, one thing in a dish can ruin it for me and that ONE a thing right now is avocados. So!

It's so dreary! So update on life: I've moved back home to MN and am working for the summer before going back to school in the Fall. Full disclosure, I'm not sure if I'm going to just work full time and do ONLINE school for a year or just go in the Fall. News update: Rachel is back! She served for 18 months as a missionary and 3 weeks ago I got to see her for the first time since then which was the best :) also just being back with my sisters (Rachel and Louisa, Amy) has been great and much needed. It's just Louisa and I now, the other two are off at school.

Is there something in my teeth?

ALSO. NEWS. AMY is engaged!!!!! She is so happy and that means I'm happy!!!

Recently, especially since I have been moving around a lot, I have been trying to live more of a minimalist lifestyle, both physically and mentally. That means not only getting rid of a majority of my things, but also not taking on so many tasks, projects and responsibilities, at least for now. I'm hoping that my stress will go down and my joy will go up! I have also been working on my daily scripture study; something that I hadn't been doing because I'm a horrible slacker! It has been going well. So far..

You can't see her tag, but this is Sister Mower. She's so amazing! She was transferred last week to a different area and the Singles Ward will miss her terribly.

I've noticed that I haven't been blogging nearly as much as I'd like, and I miss it! I know I always say that but I seriously need to get back at it! I keep meaning to start my vlog but I don't even know how to do that. Hah! If any of you out there want to be my personal audio/video expert let me know! ALSO, in the near future there will be some changes to the blog.. that's all I will say for now :)
