since being home..

I've realized:

*I will never tire of this view!

*I'm really nervous driving on the freeway, being surrounded by so many cars!
*I'm really annoyed with people who feel they must drive with all windows down, blaring their rap music for all to hear
*I've noticed how sweet everything is! Gum, coffee creamer, cookies..etc
*I've worked 7 days so far
*I haven't listened to my ipod once, which makes me sad. I miss my music!
*I've been to Trader Joe's twice :)
*I've been having fun cooking and baking!
*I love walking downtown

I thought it would be really fun to surprise my mom of my early return to the States this summer, and boy was it fun!! My dad was the only person that knew I was flying home, and we surprised my sister as soon as we got home. My mom got home from work later on that evening, and I was so excited to see the look on her face when she realized I was home! I'm stoked that we got this video of the whole thing. Angie and I are on the back porch when mom got home from work, and dad asked her to help him bring some flowers to put on the back porch, and that's when she saw me. The first minute and 50 seconds are just me and Angie waiting for her to come I wouldn't blame you if you fast forward up to that point. After she saw me, we were just explaining how we had planned everything. Very fun!!! I'm glad it worked out so well. :)

The makings of a wonderfully delicious and healthy pantry!
