So recently I found this website
and just adore it!
Please check it out, I promise you'll relate to so many of them!
Today I came across this one
Last night I had the opportunity to have some
"quality bonding time" with my old room mates.
We are all at such different times in our lives
but when we get together like we did last night
it's like we were never apart, and we're still those
18 year old kids sitting in our dorm room freshman year.

I love friendships like that.
No matter where you end up, you can always
catch up right where you left off.
It's a good feeling.

So last night, during our bonding time,
we went to a movie for Sundance Film Festival
called "Liberal Arts" with Elizabeth Olsen, Josh Radnor 
(who I had no idea who he was before this movie, but he's a really good actor!)
and surprisingly Zac Efron.
The movie was fantastic.
We all thoroughly enjoyed it!

Also, I developed a girl crush on Elizabeth Olsen...
She's so much better than the other two!
Look how adorable she is!

Pasta, Alfredo & CHEESE!

So most of the time after work, I don't have much desire
to make a nice dinner, but yesterday I saw
THIS little gem on Pinterest and had to try it out!
And this was the results:

You should definitely try it!
Noodles, alfredo, cheeses and a few other things!
Nom nom nom.
Tay liked it, to say the least :)
I got SO many other recipes from Pinterest
that I'm just dying to try.
Especially the desserts.
I'll send you more recipes as I get them :)
Man, I love Pinterest.

Sometimes I find out about things and wish I hadn't.
Like when your friends do stupid things.
Stupid, irresponsible, things where you'd think they
would learn from other people's mistakes...
But I guess they have to learn for themselves.

...I'm sorry.
Forgive me?
I haven't blogged in so long!
It doesn't help that we don't have internet at our apartment
but we will be getting it soon, so I can keep you updated
every second of everyday of our lives...
okay not every second!

The last time I blogged I told you about our big car purchase.
The newest addition to our little apartment
is our new red couch-our great Ikea find :)

Since I last blogged all this happened too:
-I was made manager at the boutique I work at
-the new season of the bachelor started-eek!
-Taylor and I enjoyed our very first Christmas together
-Along with new years
-Got a brand new yellow kitchenaid :)
Isn't it a beauty?
Ohh, I can't tell you how much I love it.
Whipped Cream.
Awesome? YES!

-Finally got the Hunger Games series for Christmas
and devoured the first book.
I absolutely loved it.
I can't WAIT for the movie!
Have you seen the trailer yet?
If you haven't, look it up.
You won't regret it!

So, enough catch-up.
I want some ideas.
I've been searching Pinterest for cute ideas
for our apartment but I haven't really found any
that I love-so I'm seeking your help.
Cute ideas for decorating your house/apartment?


OH! And Beyonce' had her BABY!
Blue Ivy.
Different, but love the Ivy.
Tay wants to throw a baby shower for her, so pictures coming soon.

I'm alive!

Holy Moly.
I've been gone for a long time.
I apologize!
We don't have internet at our new place, so the only chance
I have to blog is when we're at the in-laws but 
typically when we're here we're always eating and enjoying
each other's company so I don't have much time to blog.
But I finally have a Saturday off from work so I put my day off to good use :)

Like the new layout?
I had some free time on my hands today.

Let's see, here's the low-down of what's new in the lives of the Hawkins clan:
1. New apartment. Super cute, smaller, but we love it. Great location and wonderful ward.
2. Tay and I are now fully employed! I'm working at a home decor/vinyl boutique in Bountiful
for about the last two months and Tay starts work at H&M on Monday!
3. We have 2 new additions to the family, Jack and Joey...
They're a bit on the boring side, mostly because we're not home a whole lot
so they haven't gotten used to us yet but hopefully we'll break them in.
4. We just made our first "big kid purchase" and bought a 2009 Silver Toyota Corolla.
We both fell instantly in love with it.
5. The new season of Gossip Girl has

I think that's about it in the way of big news other than things are going well for us!

I've been going crazy for a website I found out about this summer called
(click for link)
If you haven't checked it out, you need to.
I look at it daily.
There are so many awesome recipes, outfit ideas, home decor and DIY ideas on there.
It's like I'm a kid in a candy store!

So can you believe there's only sixteen more days until Halloween?
What are you being?
We don't know for sure...leave us ideas!
Love you all.
