Did you know that...

I learned about this in one of my classes and I thought that I would share. It has been very helpful to know.

When you go to buy bread in the grocery store, have you ever wondered which is the freshest, so you "squeeze" for freshness or softness.

Did you know that bread is delivered fresh to the stores five days a week?

Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Each day has a different color twist tie. They are:

Monday- Blue
Tuesday- Green
Thursday- Red
Friday- White
Saturday- Yellow

So if today was Thursday, ou would want red twist tie - not white which is Friday's (almost a week old)!
The colors go alphabetically by color Blue - Green - Red - White - Yellow, Monday through Saturday. Very easy to remember.

I found this to be very interesting. I have never really noticed that they meant anything significant. And now you know you can get fresh bread every time you go grocery shopping! Enjoy!

Meeting Vocal Point!!

I got to meet the members of Vocal Point at a performance they had at BYU. I have been in love with them for a long time now. Ever since I started at BYU almost 5 years ago. They are such good singers and they inspire me every time I listen (everyday pretty much :) )
My favorite member is Mckay Crockett he sings Tenor 1. He has been in it basically the whole time I was in school at BYU. He has a wonderful voice and arranges a lot of the music for the group.
I have a picture to show proof I met them. It shows how awesome these guys are. They took the time to take a picture with every single person that wanted and did autographs for little kids. It was really sweet and shows how much they care about their fans.

BYU Vocal Point

BYU Vocal Point is singing on the The Sing Off and have made it to the next round. This is a video of their most recent performance on the show. It is on Monday nights. I thought I would post this for people who don't have time to watch the whole show. They are doing great and I am a HUGE fan!

I am very excited I just got my tickets today for their concert in Provo. I am very excited and can't wait. There are still tickets if anyone else wants to go. You can get tickets at it is going to be fantastic. I am going with four of my friends.

Ice Blocking (Ice Laughing!)

I went ice blocking in the Rock Canyon Park with my awesome friend Charla and my roommate Chrissy and her friends. It was super fun and a good way to relax and have fun. Charla and I had a blast and loved every minute of it. She won all the races and then we spent half the time perfecting our train. We made it to the bottom still on the ice I will have you know. It was great to spend time with Charla!

Do What is Right

Doing what is right can be very difficult sometimes and very challenging. But no matter what it takes I have learned today I need to just do what I feel is right and my life will move on! Even though it is so hard doing what is right is the best option. I feel so happy for today. I had a break through did something that needed to be done. Such a great feeling to have the weight lifted :)

More School or No?

I have been thinking about it and I think it would be great to do more school but there are so many factors and I don't really know anything about it. Can you help me out? What exactly is a Master's Degree? Where should I go? How do I pay for it? Are online schools good? What should I study I was thinking about a teaching degree?? Is it weird to get an Associate Degree after getting a Bachelor's? I was thinking about just getting an Office Management Associate's degree because I love organizing and really like working in offices and I get to learn computer programs to help me. Do you think this would be a good option? If you know the answer to any of these you should let me know! I am confused by so many choices. Especially my bros should know what is good :)

Dating Takes a LOT of Faith and Patience

So I have not been asked on very many dates in the last year...I would say two or three which is sad. But last week I went on three dates and this week I went on three dates with multiple guys but a couple repeated. This was very intense and random to me but I loved it. The only part I don't like is nothing really worked out with any of the guys and so I am stuck at point A again. Sometimes it feels like I will never find that forever but no rush is needed when we are talking about eternity.

Dating can be super awkward.
Dating can be super fun.
Dating can be non-existent
Dating can be frustrating.
Dating can be embarrassing.
Dating can be an adventure!

With so many up and downs...I would just like to say I would love it if I did not have to worry about Dating ever again. Unfortunately that is not the case so I will enjoy it while I can!

New Baby Has Arrived!! :)

drum roll please!! I have a new niece and her name is

Liliana Alice Piccolo

I think her name is very lovely! I got to hold her on the day she was born. It was very awesome and peaceful to hold her in my arms although the first time I held her I had no clue what her name was going to be :) She is my brother Stephen and sister-in-law Laurel's baby. She is their 3rd child. Congrats bro and sis on your beautiful new daughter. I am so excited to have her in our family now.

The picture of me holding her is when she is just hours old. Enjoy!

It is the most wonderful time of the year!! ... no not Christmas!

Fourth of July is one of my very favorite holidays for sure in the top 3 if not the 1st. I love all of the things that go on BBQ with family and friends, parade, running in the Freedom Run, swimming, FIREWORKS, watching movies, the sun beaming, and eating lots of ice cream treats!! My favorite! :)

I would take a day in the sun over a day in the snow any day! (I am my mama's daughter after all) It can get way too hot to bear but there are so many enjoyable ways to fix that! Swimming, delicious drinks (especially water), and so many other things.

I have not had a spontaneous water fight in years but they are the best thing ever! :) So if you are around me where this is possible give it a try if I don't beat you to it! :)

Even though I did not feel very well last night and decided to miss the fireworks I had a great holiday and wouldn't have changed it for anything!! IT was wonderful thank you for everyone who made it so much better by being there for part of it. :)

Just the Beginning

I have now been exercising more regularly. I am trying to get ready for the Freedom Run 5K this year! I usually just run it. This year I want to do my best time and do it faster and feel like I am more in health and not dying during the race :)

So yesterday I ran 3.25 miles on an average of 11:20 minutes. This seems very slow but pretty good for a starting point.

My goal is 8:45 minute miles. :)

Any tips to improve my time or motivate me would be great!

Also anyone whoever wants to run with me would be awesome!

Can anyone guess where I am? I am in CALI!! I went to Disneyland yesterday and I am going back tomorrow. I had a lot of fun going yesterday. I got to hang out with cute 10-yr old Julia Conover. She is very sweet and fun to talk with. I have not gotten to ride any of the really fun rides because Julia was afraid. But I look forward to riding them with others tomorrow :) Hope you are enjoying Utah weather while I am in the very nice awesome Cali weather!

Eliza is soooo cute!!!

Today (and last time) when I was leaving Eliza and Abigail's house after I was done helping to watch them. Eliza ran up to me and gave me tons of hugs and kisses! <3 She then continued by telling me to back visit her again soon. (a million times :)) But then she said,

"Angie, Angie, don't get dead! (over and over!)

I couldn't understand her at first but then when I realized what she said it was hilarious and very sweet at the same time! Eliza is my fun little buddy!

Biggest Loser- Great Season

I favorite TV show is The Biggest Loser. It is the only show that I watch consistently. (keeps me insane with all of this work and school :)) This season has been very exciting there were 6 LDS members on the show and it makes a difference on this season. People have seemed to be nicer to one another. 5 of them are still in the competition and it has been going for quite a while there is only 13 people left. that is 5 out 13 are LDS!
On this season the teams have been mostly the girls against the guys with a couple exceptions but it is fun to watch. The girls have to work harder to loose weight but have won some of the weigh ins.
I think that my favorite people this season as of now is Moses and Kaylie from Shelley, Idaho. They are Polynesian, they are very fun and doing very well. Moses is in first place for weight loss which is great! I am worried Kaylie will be sent home because she is the smallest girl on the show so it is even harder for her to pull big numbers. I am also rooting for Rulon Gardner and Justin Pope (his teammate)
Courtney (aqua team) has been very inspirational to me and motivates me to do better with my goals and be happy with the little accomplishments I have.

I look forward to finishing off the season to see what happens with all the contestants in the end. It makes me happy to see all of these people change their lives.

It is never too late to start watching it yourself! Tuesdays on NBC :) I would love to watch it with someone else!!
