I (Tyler) was looking at a company's website that is recruiting at BYU this week and read this:
Based in Provo, Utah, one of Forbes Magazine's Top 10 Most Livable Cities, the team continues to look for innovative ways to better serve our clients and local community.
I love that category. It's not 10 best cities to live in, just 10 most livable.

"How do you like Provo?"

"It's so livable!"

My Valentine's Day

I don't like calling it "V-Day." I also don't like "Turkey Day" and "Xmas." I dislike all of these names for different reasons, and I don't want to go in to it, but just let it be known that I really don't like them. There.

Besides being annoyed about the title of the day, my Valentine's day was really wonderful. Tyler had flowers delivered to me while I was at home alone with Calvin, and it was a wonderful surprise. Now, even 2 weeks later, they still actually look pretty!

For a romantic evening, we went to dinner and a movie. We saw The King's Speech and it was just wonderful. It is so refreshing to see a well-made movie with fantastic acting. Well done, filmmakers.

Also for the occasion, I went to my friend's annual Valentine's Day Cookie Exchange, and I do have to say that I am constantly amazed by her creativity and talent. She is an amazing decorator with such a unique style. I have included some pictures from the party for your enjoyment.
For my contribution to the exchange, I made Sweetie Pie Pops, which I thought turned out so cute! I got the idea off of Our Best Bites which is my new favorite go-to site for yummy recipes. I also made their Chicken Pot Pie this month which was really easy and so good. Basically, I will make and eat anything that involves homemade pie crust. :)

I like it when I make things and they turn out the way I want them too. It doesn't happen all the time...
