I graduated!!!

So this last Friday I graduated:) I don't feel any different. But I think after grad blast I did a little (I got really sick, I may have got food poisoning.) When I got home around 6:30am I had a really bad stomach ache. I slept until around noon and was still sick. I finally got better after about two days. I wouldn't be surprised after what I ate: walking taco's, about 5 vitamin waters, 5 waters, and a mountain dew, fruit, mac and cheese, hot spicy peperoni's, and a lot of other stuff. Grad blast was so much fun though. Spending the whole night wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. This years grad blast theme was the Olympics. I was on team Pennington. We played games, a hypnotist was there(I didn't get hypnotized), karaoke, boxing, and a lot of other fun things were their for us.

I'm done with school!

Today was my last day of school. I can't believe it. It seems like High school went by way too fast. I feel like I just entered Junior High a year ago. Those adolescence years were probably my worste years of my life. Looking back, I see how much I have changed. I didn't have Jesus in my life and that was a big part of why I had such a hard time growing up. I'm so glad that I finally gave myself to Him in the 10th grade. Graduation is Friday. I'm going to miss a lot of people, some not so much, but still it will be sad leaving everyone from the class of 2008. I just pray that God will guide me and give me the courage this year to become more like this Son, Jesus.

The way God showed me His love today

Today was the most beautiful day ever. I got done with a test early so I got to spend some time outside for awhile. I went to a park near the college and got to read my Bible, take a few picture's, eat lunch, and take in the beautiful world around me. Here are a few pictures of how God showed me His love today. Enjoy!

God gave me this Bible to show me His unfailing love He has for me.

The sky and clouds remind me of God's love.

The world in general is a reminder of God's love. He made it in six day's. That is pretty amazing.

Just looking at this tree reminds me of God's love. Every little detail God designed.

This beautiful, witty little girl also showed me God's love today. I love her!

To end the afternoon I got to enjoy part of it with a friend at a coffee shop. We read God's word, laughed, and talked about the future(scary, exciting, nervous!). This was another way God showed me His love, through friends.

Hip Hugger Bars

Are you tired of the old ordinary recipes? Have you ever wanted to impress guests with something new? Well, you are in luck. Hip Hugger Bars - a soothing bar that keeps your lips smacking - is just what you need. Never again will you have to make the ancient recipe of chocolate chip cookies. Just a few simple steps will lead your guests to a delightful indulgence of Hip Hugger Bars.

First, make sure you have all the ingredients for the crust and the filling. For your crust you will need 1 cup of brown sugar, ½ cup of butter, 1 egg, 1 ½ cups of flour, 1 ½ cups of quick oatmeal, ¼ teaspoon of salt, ½ teaspoon of baking soda, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla. For your filling you will need 1 can of sweetened condensed milk, 2 tablespoons of butter, and 1 (6 ounce) package of chocolate chips. You will also need a medium sized bowl, 9 x 13 pan, double boiler, and measurements.

Have your medium sized bowl ready for the crust. Mix in the brown sugar and butter until it gets smooth. Then add in your egg, flour, oatmeal, salt, baking soda, and vanilla. Put 2/3 of the crust mix into the pan and press down until even. You will be using the double boiler to melt your sweetened condensed milk, butter, and chocolate chips. It is a utensil consisting of two pots, one that fits partway into the other. The lower pot has water in it to warm or melt a substance in the upper pot.

Have your burner on low heat and make sure to stir continuously; this will keep it from burning on the bottom. If you do not have a double boiler you may use the microwave to melt the ingredients. Make sure to watch it closely so it does not burn.

Once you have the filling melted you can start to put everything together. First you should preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Then you can start to pour the filling onto the crust in the 9 x 13 pan. After the filling is in you can take out the remaining 1/3 crust from the fridge and start to make little patties about the size of smaller cookies. When you are done making the patties, you can spread them out over the filling. After that you can put the pan into the oven and let it bake for twenty minutes. When they are done let them cool for 10 minutes before you cut them. For best results cut them into 1 x 1 or 2 x 2 squares.

Your house will smell like a Martha Stewart baking sale, with the aroma of crust baking to the sweet smell of chocolate. Smiles on your guest’s faces will fill your soul with joy.
This is is my Grandma Ula's recipe. She is pretty much amazing.

Awards Banquet

Last night I went to the senior awards banquet. I got to eat school lunch for the last time as a senior, take goofy pictures with friends, and receive a scholarship! My graduation is exactly three weeks from today.
