Not sure I mentioned this before but I'm back in school. Taking some math and economics this time in case I want a business degree somewhere down the line. Mostly I just needed classes to get credit to keep my teaching license current. Anyway, so far so good, but it just so happens I discovered an old student in my math class. Seriously. He was in my reading class. English is his second language so he struggled with reading it. Luckily he was one of my favorites. Now I have a friend at school!

Bret and I spent last week in Orem with his parents.  We were attending Education Week.  Can I just say I LOVED IT.  Yep, I did.  I also celebrated my bday about a week ago.  We celebrated by walking around Silver Lake and having a picnic then driving to Orem and having dinner at IHOP and then playing bocce in the park and then going to see "The Drowsy Chaperone"  at the Hale Theater in Orem. I loved that play.  I loved the lake and bocce.  The rest was so so.  :)  It was a grand day, though.

Here's a pic taken at my mother's on my bday.  My sister made the cake.  The numbers Mom had on hand weren't quite accurate, but we made do.

Fancified tuna helper

Bret came to our marriage with an amazing food storage. One thing I wasn't thrilled about, though, was his small collection of tuna helper. Tonight I took one and fancified it up. First step was to hold the tuna. Then I added fresh basil and used butter instead of margarine. Pretty yummy! I plan to chop some garden tomatoes and throw them on before serving.
