a lonely saturday night

Why does it still have to be winter? I mean winter, I love you, January is the best month, but you ruin my plans with your freak snow storms!! How am i supposed to do something with my boy if you randomly decide snow is a good idea? I can't go to Salt Lake if the canyon is closed!!
Let me put it a different way: I am so glad that i am snowed in because now all i want to do is bake cookies even when i am gluten/sugar free. So thanks winter, for that craving/desire or whatever you call it. Luckily, I found a healthy alternative!! 
Baked grape fruit with honey and cinnamon
Sitting in the hot tub made me happy, even if it was snowing. 
twisted braid
taking inventory of my closet. What I need, what I need to get rid of. I don't like to have anything unnecessary.
I am now sitting in my bed blogging about it (i rock), wondering if nine o' clock is too early to go to sleep, but then i'm like "nahhhh" so goodnight my lovely blog friends.


I love bloglovin!! Do you use it? Follow me!

A week in photos.

Valentines cards i made, but never got around to sending...
I moved out of my apartment and back to Park City...
make sure you know your roommate before you move in together! 
Why did I ever want to leave?

Latest crafts with the boys. Thatcher is working on his ABC'S.
It is HARD to do crafts with a two year old and one year old!! 
My little man :) 
I am so glad it is friday. I am exhausted, as i am sure many of you are as well. So treat yourself right this weekend :) Thanks for reading!! xx

a hair post.


It's that time of year that my hair starts to drive me crazy. it goes darker, gets dry and thin, and other things. I just get so sick of it! this is the time of year that i can NOT make any drastic hair changes because i know i will regret in in the near future.
funny story actually, when i was a sophomore, i was sick of my hair so i asked my hair dresser to cut 6 inches off. She put it in a pony tail and snipped. The second she cut it, i cried. i cried for days. it was a travesty (sing "travesty" like in Pitch Perfect) anyway... back to the real post.
as i am sure whoever is reading this blog has had hair trauma. this blog post is just a reminder to myself, that it wont be winter forever, and soon the sun will be bleaching out my hair. but for now, i can just wish i was brave enough to dye my hair strawberry blonde like blake. the other picture of candice is me just wishing my hair looked that right now.
So if i start posting pictures of short a lines, stop me!! i wouldn't want to make any drastic decisions just because of this winter sulking.
hair hair hair. too bad there are other things more important!! I hope you are all having a lovely weekend :) thanks for reading!

I hope everybody had a lovely valentines day (notice the pun). I sure did! I was spoiled. We had chinese food at my house in Park City (notice the mountains in the background). It was pretty perfect. and I did get my strawberries after all :) lots. of. chocolate. i sure do like valentines day.

fourth image: our set up for dinner.

happy valentines day!

The day i have been waiting for for weeks!! and i'm sick in bed... hopefully i feel better by tonight so i can go out with ma taylor!! I hope everyone has a great valentines day. Spend it with the ones you love! and eat chocolate strawberries. that's the only thing i MUST accomplish today.

Some flowers for you...


because everyone can use flowers on a monday. 

Sweet Potato Fries

I promise that this is not a food blog, but when it comes to finding  good recipes, I feel bad not sharing them! Sweet potato fries are definitely one of my favorite foods. YUM. seriously. This recipe is super easy and they come out tasting so delish! Give it a try next time you need a yummy snack, or want french fries with out feeling super bad about it. You'll be grateful you tried them.

are all my valentine's day posts annoying yet?

just me thinking

Sometimes I get so wrapped up in my own life that i forget there are actually other people in this world. It's bad i know. But i'm working on it. I have made a promise to myself that i will never be too busy to help someone, or to write something as simple as a thank you note or a text. I know that i make goals and forget about them, but now it is set in stone because it is on my blog. I have been so blessed with all of the people around me, and I know that others have reached out to me on my time of need, and i feel nothing but love from these people. There are so many good people in this world. Sometimes i feel undeserving of the kind people around me, but then i remember they are there to show me that a little love goes a long way, and they make me want to be a better person.

Life really is precious. and i am thankful for people that add just that little extra.

If you're reading this, you probably have someone in mind that you feel could use a little message or secret delivery. this is your sign.

thanks for showing up weekend!

 I promise that this is my last post on pancakes for a while. I don't know what the obsession is, but i'm working on it! I can't tell you how happy I am that it is friday. I don't have any plans, but sometimes those are the best weekends. Thank you weekend for showing up. it took a while, but you made it. 
On a side note, I have been dating this handsome man Taylor for four months (yesterday). Seems like much longer than that, and i never thought I would be the type of girl that would actually count the months, but I can honestly say that he makes me so happy and that i am a better person because of him. I don't want to get all cheesy on you, so i will end now, but tay, know that i love you! xx

I had to.

Ok i had to do this. This picture was taken before Taylor (far left) and I (second to the right) were even dating. I would say we're pretty good together :) He literally cracks me up every day. he makes me happy and i love him. This picture sums it up. so there ya go.

National Pancake Day

More Pancakes for national pancake day! Is it weird that i celebrated it? This time i made half regular pancakes for my boy, and half vegan pancakes for me. When is national cupcake day? Is there a national cupcake day? I would like that.

This is the first year that i have actually gotten into valentines day. hmm... i wonder why. Unlike last year. I started early and try to incorporate a little heart action every day, whether it be a heart filter on a photo, or drawing on the chalk board. I am just so excited for the 14th! What are your plans? Tay and i can't decide what to do! Maybe we will make pink pancakes for dinner, or go out somewhere nice. Maybe even build a fort. I just don't know!


I am a huge breakfast person. I would eat breakfast foods all through out the day. Not to mention the amounts of oatmeal a week I consume. I am always looking for healthy breakfast recipes because I know just how important breakfast is to start your day off. As much as I try to eat healthy, my family has always had pancake or waffle sundays with eggs and bacon. I always loved and looked forward to that tradition, but now that don't eat dairy or gluten, it is hard for me to enjoy it! So luckily, I found the perfect pancake recipe! Now I don't have to sit the pancake sunday's out and just eat eggs. I can eat my vegan oatmeal and banana pancakes! They are definitely healthy, and if you are looking to indulge, they may not be the pancakes for you. But if you are going for something light and guilt free, give these a try!

Blend all of the ingredients together in a blender, except the bananas. Then add the two bananas and blend thoroughly until smooth. Lightly oil (grease) the griddle (coconut oil, pam, whatever your "thing" is). Pour pancakes and cook. Once the pancake bubbles up, flip it over. (I bet you already knew that) This makes a dozen medium sized pancakes. 


If you are ever in Park City, or aren't, but you want somewhere delicious and fun to go, go to Vinto which is on Main Street. It is definitely just an overall good experience. Thats what we did on saturday night. I love Vinto!

It's been a while.

Lots has happened since I was here last... here are just some pictures of some things that have happened   recently!

I have the cutest boyfriend in the world. I love him.     
Became a nanny for this cute boy and his little brother (who was napping) I love these handsome men.
I am going to be an auntie!! Look at that little jelly bean. 
I turned 19! Big dinner at My have, Sundance Foundry Grill.
Saw the Biebs in concert. swoon.
Said goodbye to Jaime for 4 months while she teaches english in Ukraine!
Took a road trip with Tay to visit Luke and Rachel at BYU-I!
Quit my job at BCBG. (old news) 

Enjoy your weekend! I hope it is relaxing.

thank you.

I am so sorry for all of this change!! I just cant seem to make up my mind about what i want to call my blog, the header, and more. but for now i will just leave it like this. I changed my title to With Love From 101, because that is the room number of my apartment, but it just didn't sit well with me! I won't live there forever, and because i am hardly at my apartment ever, it just didn't seem right! Well I am keeping it this way for now. Thanks for reading my blog!! check back soon and I promise I will be better at posting.
