A Day in D.C.

The Friday before General Conference, James and I went to D.C. to see the cherry blossoms at the National Cherry Blossom Festival. It was cold and rainy, but the blossoms were beautiful. There were hundreds of trees. I think we picked the best day to go. Since the weather wasn't the best, there weren't too many people and we could easily walk around and take pictures. After the cherry blossoms, we also spent a little time in the Museum of Natural History and then met up with one of my best friends from high school for a delicious greek dinner.

Poll Results

So, the poll turned out to be a much bigger headache than expected. Blogger's poll widget did not work at all, so I used another website. The poll was linked to that site, and then the site went down for several days. So, I apologize if you tried to vote and could not. The results (out of 33 votes) are as follows:

In case you were wondering, our preferences are 1) Michigan, 2) UNC, 3) Hopkins. We should have an official decision in the next week or so. We'll keep you posted.

Crafting with Clay

I have found a new crafting interest/obsession! I started sculpting with baking clay and have made multiple sets of earrings. Here are a few that I made during the Priesthood Session of Conference. Most of them are just fun earrings I can wear to work. The little kids LOVE stuff like this. The "Y" was by far the hardest to make, but one of my favorites. I have been thinking of beginning a crafting "How To" blog; what do you think?
