C R A Z Y ! ! !

So, this week started pretty crazy for me, but I'm so excited!

First of all, today I recorded a PodCast, which will be on YouTube this Wednesday. It's for a school contest. I'll need help from you guys and hope that you will keep clicking there so I get a lot of views :) The Grad Finale is on Thursday, where we are going to watch all of the videos made, and where they will announce the winner... $200 sounds really good right now ;)

Thursday afternoon I have an Elevator Pitch contest to be held in the afternoon. If you want to know more about Elevator Pitch just Google it :) I'm so tired I can't explain right now.

Oh yeah! And today I auditioned to be in the Acoustic Guitar Program at BYU-I this Saturday. Patricia played for me and I hope we did pretty good. We'll get an email from them tomorrow leting us know if we made it :D

That's how exciting it has been so far... Boy this wek is sre full of promises :)

I'll be posting the link to the video tomorrow morning, as soon as I upload it :)

And, of course, I'll keep everyone updated! Boa Noite por hoje!

German Chocolate Cake Rolo Cookies


1 Box German Chocolate Cake Mix
2 Eggs
1/3 Cup Oil
I package of Rolos*

How To Prepare:

Beat everything together. Roll into 1 inch balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet, flatten slightly.

Bake 8-10 350 F. Place the Rolos on top of the cookies while they are still warm**. Enjoy them!

* I bet you can use other kinds of chocolate as well.

** You can also place the Rolos IN the cookie dough mix and bake them at once. What happens is that, when you bite the cookies, a caramel swirl will come out of them... How cool is that!

Minha Wonderful Pleilistchi

Sunday Afternoon in Rexburg...

So, here I am... Church ended at 12.30 and I came home... Interesting day... The girls in the ward assigned each other with another girl to spotlight, and this Sunday was our apartment's turn to be spotlighted (I wonder if that word exists). Chelsi had me. Cutest girl in the world! From California, she came over to my apartment on Friday to ask me a few questions so she could introduce me to the rest of the class. While I was working on my Business Project, she asked me some questions, including what was my favorite treat. :) On Thursday I had a date with "six pack" and that was when I had these wonderful cookies made out of German Chocolate cake batter and "Rolos". Oh my Gravy! Those were good!
So basically today, she comes to church with those wonderful cookies for me! She went out of her way to find the recipe, probably online or something... And took them to me. That was so sweet!
When I got home from church, I saw her running down the stairs crying and talking on the cell phone. I wanted to stop her and ask what was going on... Wonder if someone in her family was going through a hard time or something. She seemed to be in despair. But at the same time I didn't want to be nosy. Well, to summarize, I decided to leave a little note for her, thanking her again for the wonderful cookies, and leaving my phone number in case she needed to talk or something like that.
We are more than half way through the semester, but I hope I have an opportunity to become friends with her and the other girls in the ward. The spirit of Ricks is not a legend. It really is here. This place is blessed with wonderful people everywhere you go.
I'll try to find the cookies recipe and I'll post it here. Those are WORTH gaining the pounds for ;)
