I love this girl!

The plan was to go to Buffalo, NY this weekend to visit my old BYU-I roomie, Amanda. I haven't seen her in over 2 years! I was ready to leave Friday right after school-
Then I heard about the HUGE snow storm Buffalo had Thursday night. Amanda said they didn't have electicity or water and tons of roads were shut down! I was devastated. Then came the idea- she should come to me! Her Mom agreed if she brought her sister Adrienne! They drove all night friday- arriving at 2am! It was so much fun chatting, laughing, looking at pictures. We went to the temple, her Aunt and Uncle took us out for dinner... our waiter was the cutest little Mexican man!! We ate right after Church and they headed home... it was sad to see them go but it was soo worth it to have them here! She is the funniest, craziest girl. It is such a blessing to have her in my life!!

p.s. She wasn't even here for 48 hours and I made tons of food- Lemon poppyseed muffins, double chocolate banana muffins, pumpkin cheesecake (again) and snicker salad!!
I totally meant to take a picture of the S.S. but forgot before it was too late- but here is the recipe. Kim- let me know what you think- it sounds nasty but tastes delicious!
1 red apple
1 green apple
1 snickers bar
1/2 cup whipping cream(whip stiff with 4 tsp powdered sugar)
1/2 of 6 oz strawberry yogurt

Cut up apples and snickers into bitesize pieces. Fold into whipped cream and yogurt.
(I don't really follow this recipe... I just cut up as many apples as I want, mix cool whip and yogurt -add to apples- and add enough Snickers so there is one if every bite! Yummy!

Okay, I have never put yogurt in my snicker salad before, but that sounds yummy. Usually we just add cool-whip! Sounds so good w/ the yogurt! Gonna have to make some since a friend of mine is giving me a bunch of apples.
