Sometimes you just need a little bit of everything?

Have you ever been on a diet and you craved one thing the whole time. Then you get off the diet and you decide to have just a little bit of what you craved. You taste it and realize it's not at all what you wanted. So instead of just moving on you decide you are going to figure out what you were craving and eat everything you can think of that sounds good. But nothing still feels right... Yeah I am in limbo right now. I don't know what I want... and what if I figure it out and I can't have it? What will I do then?

Homemade Tomato Soup

So I am sick right now and all I wanted was some tomato basil soup. Dahlia invited me over for dinner and we decided to make it. I didn't measure anything and just did my usual way of improv soooo here's what it was, roughly

1 can condensed tomato soup (make as instructed 1/2 can water 1/2 can milk)
1 roma tomato
3 cloves garlic (Brendan said it was too garlicy)
1/4 cup onion (roughly)
Crushed Red Pepper

Combine all in a blender until smooth (or chunky if you like chunks)
Heat on stove

Easy as cake mix.

It was SOUPer yummy (couldn't resist)

So I forgot this thing load the pictures backwards so I guess I will go backwards in my week!
It was so much fun being home and not dealing with the people in Utah (although I did miss a couple people) But Carmen didn't have school so I wasn't dealing with her crazy early alarm AND I wasn't dealing with Jessie's early alarm/Niagara falls right by my head so I actually slept...for the most part. I was out super late some nights with Jessica which was fun.

I got to Bend Saturday had dinner with my family then spend some time with Jessica.
Sunday went to Church with the Fam. Jacot's and our neighbor came over for a Cuban meal (yummmm) we played some Just Dance it was super fun.
Monday I don't remember much from Monday but I spent the night at Jessica's that night.
Tuesday is also a blur, I'm sure there was some Jessica involved some shopping and some yummy food. OH yes yummy food Village Baker! If you are ever in Bend go there!
Wednesday PreThanksgiving workout. Jessica kicked my butt!! Then we had Thai Trailer with my parents.
Thursday we did some shopping before cooking and after the parade (love it every year) Got some great deals.
Friday More shopping Lunch with Jessica and Carmen Pictures with Jess and Ca. That night I saw a lot of my high school friends that I hadn't even talked to much since Sophomore year...that is a very long time...
Saturday I had lunch with one of my friends from church and it was nice to reconnect with him. Jessica worked all day so it was just a lazy day until she got off and we had some Pizza Mondo!
Sunday Went to church and then I made a SUPER adorable skirt with the help of my mom. I'll post a picture of it next time I make it! But I loved it! So cute!

(funny side note. my best friend was in Wyoming with her hubby for thanksgiving, that morning she texted me and said she was going hunting. my reaction "trying to catch a turkey for dinner?" I am funny I know)

This is a picture of Jessica and I Friday night before we went out to the bars. Don't worry I was DD :-) And I am a great DD haha

Friday day we did some black Friday shopping and found Santa. He kept asking Carmen and I what we want for Christmas and we never answered him. Then he told us about how kids used to ask for coal but how it's a bad thing now. He also said he has been Santa for 7 years and hadn't seen us before... (I thought Santa lived forever... so confused)

Mima and Papi are still in love (When they remember each other) they are quite cute and I love them. Papi demanded a picture with Mima.

Dad will always be the man of the house carving the Turkey (OH NO I JUST REALIZED CARMEN AND I NEVER DID THE WISHBONE!!!)

We had a lovely spread

I got Jessica this Pillow pet for her birthday. She loves it. (I'm awesome) This was from our third day together. It was a fun fun time!
