Don't you fret

A little fall of rain can hardly hurt me now.

A wise friend taught me that there are no such things as bad days,
only bad moments.

Tomorrow will feel better, friend.

A little fall of rain can hardly hurt you now...
for the sunshine will be your umbrella.

This week I ate one of these...
while wearing one of these...

and smelling some of these...

Isn't springtime WONDERFUL!?! Everything is so delicious in Arizona right now. Flowers, shorts, fruit, pony tails, flip flops. And most importantly, General Conference. Hope you all enjoy the delicious treats that spring has to offer!

The Dishwasher Chronicles

Here's a little gem for you...

Remember my damaged disposal? Our dishwasher broke! This wasn't a HUGE deal since the last two years I've lived in apartments that didn't even have dishwashers. So I'm very familiar with using fingernails to scrape plastered oatmeal from my $2 plates. Our sad little dishwasher has been making some serious angry noises for the last several weeks, and Ryan and I have debated on whether or not to even use it. We did anyway, lazy us. However, before any huge explosion occured, we called the maintenance crew and after managing the problem, they found a stock of plastic water bottle lids jammed in the tubing. Yes I did wash plastic water bottles and re-use them. It saves money, right? Several other parts were broken, none of which was my fault. Fast forward one week and now we have a brand new dishwasher!

I especially loved it when the repair man mentioned "Oh yeah! This is so easy to fix. These dishwashers only cost us $105 each. We're happy to help!"

No wonder it broke in the first place...
