My Christmas Spirit

This year has been a tough one for the Hardy home. We were doing so good but then BAM then I had the back
injury....All that good money I was making flew right out the door. Because of the financial hardships I was really putting off Christmas. I tried really hard to get in the mood by putting up the decorations and plugging in our lights every once in a while but it was all a cover up as to what I was really feeling.

You see, starting in October my in-laws decided that they were going to come and visit us for Christmas. I was so excited. Especially excited because we were going to surprise Michael. So even though I wouldn't be able to buy my husband ANYTHING to open on Christmas morning I would at least of given him the gift of "his parents." So why am I complaining, right? Well, when November hit we were hit with a crazy scary medical thing and all plans were put on hold.
Things I started to think about every day:
Where they going to come were they not going to come? What would we do for Christmas if they didn't? Two Christmases in a row with no family how depressing is our life? Hurry Luanne: make plans, get Michael excited.

Well nothing was happening. I tried with all my might, mind and strength to get Michael excited but how can I do that when I'm not even excited myself? I also felt bad because I knew that the "reason for the season" was not Christmas presents and that I really needed to get over myself. But I've never had a Christmas with out presents so I've never needed to really think about it before. This is a happy story...just to let you know.
All things changed for us when I was talking to my mother-in-la
w and she said that YES!!! THEY WOULD BE COMING!! Instantly, my frown turned upside down. I was finally excited for Christmas. The depressing cloud that was hanging in our apartment was lifted. But I still noticed that I wasn't in the Christmas spirit, I was just excited that my in-laws were coming.
*Today is Monday
Yesterday our Sacrament meeting, I'm sure it was the same for all of you, was the Christmas program. Since we have such a big choir our choir director plans the whole thing and so it's all music focus. There is no better way to get into the Christmas spirit than with music (in my opinion). On our way to church that morning Michael and I were listening to the ONLY Christmas music we have: Gate City. The last song we heard before walking in was Merry Christmas Mary. Do I know if this is the name of the One line really stood out for me and it started a whole domino affect. The line said something about how Christ was born on Earth for each and every one of us. I know, I know this should be something very obvious but I've never thought of it that way. I always thought "Oh he went through pain and suffering for all of us. Oh he was crucified for us." But I never ever thought that he was BORN for us. So I think about that for a while...continuing on.
Sacrament starts. After an hour of warming up our voices the choir is ready and people are anxious. Right after the passing of the sacrament a new spirit settled in the chapel. The program was beautiful and I wish all of you could have been there. It brought such a spirit that it was hard to sing because of the tears welding up in my eyes. Right then and there I really understood what Christmas was all about. I'm so grateful to of had this experience. I can now really be ready for Christmas.
What a blessing it has been to be poor. I never thought I could learn so much and have it be so important to me by being poor. I hope that each and every one of you experience Christmas the same way I will be this year: you can be excited about the presents but I hope you really feel the spirit of the TRUE meaning of Christmas.
Merry Christmas everyone!

Christmas Decor

I know it's a big controversy on when people should be "allowed" to put up Christmas decorations. But my personal rule is as long as Thanksgiving has passed I'm in the clear. Since Monday is my day off I decided that today would be a good Christmas decoration day.
One of the main focuses of my Christmas decor is my Willow Tree Nativity. This is such a beautiful piece and I like it to be the main focus. I realized, though, that if I put it on my counter where I had put it the year before the stupid cat would knock it over and break it. Oh what to do? AHA!! The top of the entertainment center. Michael was so excited to have it up excited that he added his own little friends.

For those who need this most

Without giving away a million details I'm just going to say that right now is a scary time. It's a time when I reflect back on the importance of life and look forward with the faith I have. For some this blog may mean nothing but I know of a few who will really appreciate these words.
Yesterday during the passing of the sacrament I was in deep thought and intense prayer. *side note: every time I sing in the choir during sacrament meeting I sit next to the same lady and I always seem to cry...she probably thinks I'm a sorry sap.* Anyway, while I was in deep thought a hymn popped into my head and I haven't been able to get it out since. Granted, I only "married into" the importance of this hymn but it is still very dear and close to my heart.

Let us all press on in the work of the Lord,
That when life is o'er we may gain a reward;
In the fight for right let us wield a sword,
The mighty sword of truth.

Fear not, though the enemy deride;
Courage, for the lord is on our side.
We will heed not what the wicked may say,
But the Lord a lone we will obey.

We will not retreat, though our numbers may be few
When compared with the opposite host in view;
But an unseen power sill aid me and you
In the glorious cause of truth.


If we do what's right we have no need to fear,
For the Lord, our helper, will ever be near;
In the days of trial his Saints he will cheer,
And prosper the cause of truth.

To those who might need this most know that the Lord will comfort us and bless us. Even though times are tough and little scary we must have faith! I love you.

The Rainbow Connection

Today was one of those days you wish you could avoid but inevitably have to face. These days are always full of tears mixed with laughter and some fun memories.
Last week a friend of mine, Mike Nebeker, passed away. He was/is a such a good guy. Today, at his funeral, I was thinking really hard about Mike and great memories we had together. I couldn't help but smile from ear to ear. I love that I have the advantage of knowing that Mike is on the other side making many others smile ear to ear; I think it makes the passing easier.
The funeral service was definitely a celebration of life; Mike's life. His siblings shared memories of Mike that made me feel closer to him. It's always fun to hear about someone's childhood years. One thing I learned about Mike (it was made obvious that maybe I should have known) was his love of the Muppets. Honestly, though, who can't love the Muppets. Kermit is the cutest frog and the only frog I secretly wish to kiss. Because of Mike's love for the Muppets, it was only appropriate to have a musical number that was Muppet related. Frank Chang, a member of my ward, put together a piano piece of The Rainbow Connection. On the back of the program were the words and I was able to follow along with the piano. This song struck me deep inside and I wanted to share the words with you:

Why are there so many songs about rainbows and what's on the other side?
Rainbows are visions, but only illusions,
And rainbows have nothing to hide.
So we've been told and some choose to believe it;
I know they're wrong, wait and see
Someday we'll find it, The Rainbow Connection;
The Lovers, the dreamers, and me.

Who said that every wish would be heard and answered
When wished on the morning star?
Somebody thought of that, and someone believed it;
Look what it's done so far.
What's so amazing that keeps us stargazing
And what do we think we might see?
Someday we'll find it, The rainbow Connection;
The lovers, the dreamers, and me.
All of us under it's spell; We know that it's probably magic.

Have you been half asleep and have you heard voices?
I've heard them calling my name.
Is this the sweet sound that calls the young sailors?
The voice might be one and the same.
I've heard it too many times to ignore it.
It's something that I'm supposed to be.
Someday we'll find it, The Rainbow Connection;
The lovers, the dreamers, and me.

Thank you Mike for all your memories and AWESOME ribs. You will be missed here on Earth. God be with you til we meet again.

I love Primary

It's true. I work really hard for them every week because I love it so much. So, I made all these awesome things for an upcoming primary singing time and I know the kids will not appreciate me so someone has gotta. In reality, I know that I have some close friends and family that have the same calling that I do and I thought this might be a fun idea to share. If you would like to use it I can email you the pictures and you can just print them off your computer so you don't have to make them yourself. I'm actually really proud of what I did and I think I learned a lot myself.
The kids are going to be learning the books in the Book of Mormon and these pictures are how I thought they would learn best.
Below each picture is the description/ reason of why the picture is what it is.

1st&2nd Books of Nephi: Lehi brought his family over to the Americas in 1st Nephi.
Jacob: Jacob 5-the olive tree

Enos: Enos prays for remission of his sins.
Jarom: Nephites are looking forward to when Christ comes.

Omni: Mosiah dies and King Benjamen steps forward as leader.
Words of Mormon: Mormon puts the Golden Plates together and gives them a special blessing.

Mosiah: King Benjamen gives his "address."
Alma: War...need I say more

Helaman: Story of the stripling warriors.
3rd, 4th Nephi: Christ comes to the Americas in 3rd Nephi.

Mormon: Lamanites are taking over the Nephites. That's the Lamanites camp ground.
Ether: Those are stones that are being lit what happened to the Brother of Jared.
Mosiah: Last book in the Book of Mormon

Dinner for Two-October

This is the Dinner for Two I just did last Friday. Once again...a lot of fun. Thank you to Masha Ellsworth for taking my pictures. Please click on older posts so that you can see pictures from my August Dinner for Two.

Dinner for Two-August

A couple of posts ago I mentioned my business, Dinner for Two. Dinner for Two combines my two passions; cooking and teaching. For those who did not see the post here is a rundown:
I use my expertise that I learned in school and teach them in a fun, laid back environment to couples (or a couple of friends). I always make sure to have three courses so there is a lot of variety. I try to emphasize techniques and making the recipe your own. I have had success so far and hope for more in the future.
Here are some pictures from my first Dinner for Two back in August. Pictures from the most recent one will be up in my next post.
Thank you to Masha Ellsworth for taking pictures (along with Michael) they look really good.

Now this is cool

This afternoon when I was driving home from work I thought about how much love is shown when you serve. It's so easy to serve someone and can mean more to the person you are serving than you will ever know.
This amazing woman is showing service above and beyond anything I have ever done but she inspires me to do more. She is helping this little girl in a way that helps me remember the importance of service and the love we can show one another.

I haven't baked in a while...

...and man I have MISSED it.

Dinner for Two

Hello faithful followers. I hope everyone is enjoying their Monday as much as I have. I love Mondays; I get the day off to do whatever I want and I love that.
For those who don't know, I own my own little business called Dinner for Two. I teach people how to cook an easy three course meal (for two) and how to expound on the recipes that I give to them. I'm planning a "session" on the second Friday of October. If you live close to me and would be interested let me know so that I can send you an evite with more information.

My eggs were going bad

So it's Saturday. Michael is taking two really essential classes this term and so he really wants to stay on top of things. Because of this he is spending his whole day at school. Usually I work on Saturdays but due to a happy accident I have a three day weekend. I knew I would be needing to keep myself busy without sitting in front of the TV. So, I made a list of things I needed to do. The number one thing I really needed to do; my eggs were minutes away from expiring so I needed to boil them so they would last longer. So, what's the best thing to make when you have boiled eggs...egg salad sandwich! I let my creativity run away with me and I out did myself. I present... the best egg salad sandwich ever!
So, I took some Tomato Basil bread from Panera and put a light layer of mayo with some cheese. I put the bread in the oven to broil until lightly toasted. I then added some bacon, avacado, and onion! I do have to say that it was the best egg salad I've ever eaten!

The need to CRAFT

So it's Labor Day and there is NOTHING going on. Michael had to go to school to work on his group project and has been gone for hours. So, after figuring out the menu for the week, making the list for the grocery items I need to pick up for Mike coming into town, and cleaning I decided that I would take a walk over to Michael's (the craft store). It's right across the street and always nice and relaxing to walk through. The original plan was to get a zipper for the skirt I'm going to make but got really distracted. I ended up spending about 45 minutes there and came up with a cute idea.

I had these supplies...

and came up with this!

I was hot...OK

So for the past month I've been in great debate about my hair for a couple of reasons.
Reason 1: My hair has been long for a while now and I'm ready for a change.
Reason 2: When I had diabetes and didn't know it I lost half of the hair on my head. Now that I'm healthy my hair started growing back....starting about December. Well all of those hairs were not as long as the rest of my hair and this created several problems.
Reason 3: I'm ready for it to be short but Michael likes it long.

Well after great debate and one hot day...

This was my hair before.

This is how much I cut off.






Tell me what you think.

I think it's worth a try

Every 5th Sunday of the month our ward has a linger longer. We eat Costco pizzas with home made dessert and enjoy lingering longer with our ward family. Today at our linger longer a person in our ward was giving out not quite bloomed orchids. I know this sounds random so let me explain further.
Has anyone heard of staging a home? Don't feel bad if you haven't; I didn't know about it until I moved out here. When people put their homes up for sale they like to make it look nice so that it will sell faster. So, some home owners higher a "stager" to stage their home. These staging businesses have a lot of furniture, curtains, pots, pans, towels, etc. The businesses stage the homes for sale with the nice furniture, curtains, pots, pans, towels, etc. so the homes look more "homey." So, a lady that used to live in our ward owns one of these staging businesses and has a humongous warehouse full of stuff. Even though the lady no longer livess in our ward there are still people in our ward who work there. So, this lady had all these flowerless orchids and needed to get rid of this coming together for you?
Anyway, so I usually kill every plant I see. I even remember that one year I tried to help my mom (in-law) plant some corn and it was a bad year of corn. But, these orchids are pretty low maitence and I think I can do it. So, here is my plant (still unnamed) in her beginning stages. Stay posted so you can see what becomes of her.

Robert's Baptism

One thing that I really like about getting new jobs is the opportunity to meet a new group of people. I always seem to find one person that I can connect to and hold a strong bond with. As a baker, at Panera, I was able to hold a strong bond with Robert Hines. Robert is one of those people that everyone can get along with. If you don't get along with Robert it is your fault because he is such a great guy.
Robert is really easy to open up to and always seems to have good advice. Through our hours of working together we were able to get into some really in depth conversations. Since the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is such an important thing in my life and helps in my every day decisions I brought it up about every day. Slowly, but surely, Robert was learning more and more about the LDS religion and he would ask more and more in depth (VERY difficult) questions. I can honestly say that I answered questions that I did not know I knew the answers too. The great thing about Robert is he has a really strong Christian background and knows the Bible a lot better than anyone I know. So, it was easy for him to understand what I was talking about. One thing led to another and I was finally given the opportunity to give Robert a Book of Mormon. He was lucky enough to go to the Lord in earnest prayer and feel the spirit testify to him that the Book of Mormon is a true book of our Heavenly Father. After going to church and learning from the missionaries Robert was baptized on August 16th!
The spirit was so strong at his baptism and I'm grateful for the opportunity I had to witness such an important ordinance. Robert is going to be such a strong member of the gospel and I'm excited for the people he will encounter because they will all truly be blessed! Below are pictures from his baptism.
Michael had the honor of preforming the baptism. Michael and I were both really touched that Robert asked Michael to do this special ordinance.
These three missionaries all had the wonderful opportunity of teaching Robert. Far left: Elder Way. The one standing right next to Michael: Elder Puy. Far Right: Elder Ladd. Elder Ladd was transferred a few weeks before the baptism but was given special permission to attend the baptism. I thought that was really neat because he played such a large role in teaching Robert.
I can't put into words how proud of Robert I am. I love him so much and I am so glad that he is now a member of Christ's church.

A Final Farewell

Yesterday was a very bad day in the Hardy home; we had to say goodbye to a pet.
When Michael and I were first married we were living in an apartment that said NO to a pet. We were really aching for a friendly face to come home to and decided to make a trip to a pet store. Our intentions were to get a little Green Anole (lizard) because we knew he would be quiet (so no one would know about him), easy to feed, and would keep us company. While we were at the pet store we saw a large class case filled with $20 iguanas; we were intrigued. After some reading and thinking we ended up bringing home a baby iguana and we named him Uncle Rico (Rico for short).
For those of you who don't know, we sure didn't, iguanas are HIGH maintenance. They have to be in high humidity, high temperature environments. Their cage needs to be twice the height of them (including tail) and wide enough that they can sit on the bottom of their cage. They always have to have clean water and fresh greens so they remain happy. If you get them as babies you have to hold them almost every day so they will get tame. One way to help is to bathe them, which you have to do anyways, and often clean out their cages. But, through the hard work, the whips of the tails and the "vicious" bites you end up with one of the most loyal and best pets you can ever have. We had not quite reached this point, our little guy was still aggressive but he loved us and we loved him.
Not long after we had gotten Rico we bought him a bird's cage. It was tall and gave him a lot of room for climbing. He would often sit on the side of his cage for hours and hours just sleeping and enjoying life. He always would have a hard time getting down because his little toesies would get caught on the side of his cage but he always made it. He enjoyed cucumbers over anything else but it would make him super bloated so we only gave them to him every once in a while. He was starting to get big and was becoming more and more used to us. Even though he would run away when we tried to hold him he really did enjoy being held and rubbed on the top of his head. Unfortunately, we will never get to hold our scaly friend again.
Yesterday I sat down on the couch enjoying a bowl of Honey Nut Cherrios. As I often do, I looked over to see how our little buddy was doing. He usually looks at me in fear and whips his tail but this time it was different. Rico was at the bottom of his cage, in obvious pain, because his knee had been dislocated and the rest of his leg was only hanging on by a little bit of skin (sorry for the details). All we can assume is that as he was coming down the cage his little toesies got stuck and he tried to keep pulling and the knee dislocated. In order to fix our little guy we would have had to spend hundreds of dollars that we just don't have. So, even though there were tears in our eyes and sadness in our hearts we had to put our little friend down. It's so stupid because he was just a stupid iguana but he was our pet and our friend. We will forever miss our little Uncle Rico.

My bump named Rump

Just to clarify; I am not a crazy cat owner. But, I couldn't stand to pass this up. :)

So, it's Sunday. Michael is taking his traditional Sunday nap and I decided it would be a good time for me to check my email and waste my life on the computer. As I was waiting for the computer to start up I noticed it was really quiet in the house and I was wondering where my cat was. This is how I found her....
The sound of the camera must have woken her for the picture but it did not take her long to fall back asleep in the same position. Notice the red material? That's her kitty crack (better known as cat nip). Ever since I made her that bag she has made sure not to stray to far from it. Well, unless she is watching the iguana move; for some reason that is much more interesting to her.
I know I'm risking sounding crazy by posting this picture but like I said I could not pass it up.
Oh, by the way, a shout out to Chris Ellsworth for making me and giving me that awesome cat tree you see in the picture.

Look and love!

For those that don't know, you need to read my blog more, but I went to a wedding last week and made the wedding cake. I also made some food and it was delicious but not picture worthy. Just imagine chicken salad on a small croissant and bowtie pasta salad.
Now for the good stuff...
Tier 1: Heidi plays the piano. This cake was the most stressful for me. Luckily, Michael was really into this cake and helped me out so much.
Tier 2: Trevor is really into and apparently is a really good golfer. It's hard to tell in the picture but there is a little slope on the cake. The white glare on the bottom right is a sand trap. I'm not a photographer...Tier 3: If you get your nose really close to the screen you can see that those dots are flowers. This cake was really cute. I like the cake topper they picked.

And here it is. The sealing was indescribably amazing and the reception was just beautiful. I'm excited for my friends and the fact that they found each other because they are just so great together.

Anxious to leave

Michael's best friend is getting married to a wonderful girl on Saturday. We are so excited for his wedding and especially ready to take a break from stresses at home.
Michael and I are going to be spending the weekend with friends that we haven't seen in a long time and family that we miss so much!
We leave early tomorrow morning and the hours can't seem to go fast enough. Keep posted for some awesome pics!!

Make this. Eat this. It's delicious.

Oatmeal Spice Cake

1 C. Oats
3/4 C. water
3/4 C. flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
4 T. butter

1/2 C. brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp. vanilla

In one bowl soak oats in water for about five minutes. Make sure the water is at room temperature. In a separate bowl mix together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. In a third bowl mix together melted butter, sugar, brown sugar, egg, and vanilla. After the oats have soaked up all the water mix all three bowls together. Pour batter into an eight inch to nine inch pan. (easy clean up hint: line pan with foil) DON'T FORGET TO SPRAY PAN!! Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes. Or until toothpick comes out clean.
Let cool for about ten minutes. Turn oven to broil.

I made this last night and Michael ate 1/4 of it by the time I got home this morning. I know the oatmeal seems gross but you don't even know it's just tastes like a spice cake. Let me know how you like it.

Friends with STUFF!!!

The guy that I work with most, Neil, has become a really good friend of mine. We work together 24 hours a week...that gives a lot of time for chit chat. Just a little bit about Neil:
He's about 10 years from retiring. He has been a baker ever since the age of 15 and is an amazing one. He sincerely cares about people and is constantly looking out for those he loves. Another great part about him is that he has finally met his PERFECT match and is getting married in October. Since Neil and his fiance are not moving from their parents house to their own, they have two sets of furniture for each room. So, the set of furniture that they do not love the most is getting booted and Luanne and Michael get to reap the benefits.
When Michael and I moved to Cali we had to give up our entertainment center. I loved the piece because it was really big and had a lot of space for all of our crap. But, we were moving on a budget and some things were left behind. So, we were dealing with....(look to the left side of the picture)This is when we first moved in so it was nice and organized but still looked messy. Now imagine more DVDs, another game system, and a year of ware and tare. Basically, it looked like crap. But, Neil had an entertainment center to give us and it made quite a difference.
So as you can see it is a much better set up and there is room to grow!

We know how to party

All I wanted for my birthday, May 27th, this year was a fun day with Michael. We really haven't had much of a chance lately to just spend some time with each other. I didn't want to have to worry about money, work, school, well anything. So, I gave Michael a couple of options and made him surprise me. So, this morning, he put directions in front of me and we started to drive. I honestly had no idea where we were going. All the cities that were coming had no connection, so I thought, of things I wanted to do. But, then we took our exit, turned left, and went under an underpass and I saw it. There, on my left was GOLFLAND!!! Michael and I have wanted to go and play mini golf for a long time. We had so much fun. We ended up spending five hours playing two rounds of golf and using 110 tokens to get 310 tickets. We got some rad prizes and even had enough to give some tickets to a little girl. I encourage all to enjoy mini golf with those you love.
This is my only hole in one. I was pretty pumped.
Michael's hole in one. He made two total.
This was the windmill of doom.
Surprisingly we both did pretty good. By good I mean, we made it in all the holes; most with out cheating.

Oakland Athletics

This is the one picture I took. :) They were playing the Seattle Mariners and won 6-1. I saw several home runs and a coach get thrown out. Even though we aren't baseball fans it was fun to be there and to eat the way-too-expensive-for-what-it-is-food.
