Chicken Nacho Bake
Chicken Breasts, thawed and sliced three times on top with sharp knife
Spread an even layer of salsa on top of each breast
Spread a layer of sour cream on top of salsa
Cover with crushed tortilla chips.
Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes on a foil-covered baking sheet.
Remove from oven, cover with shredded cheese and a few more sprinkled tortilla chips, and bake for 10 more minutes or until chicken is done and cheese is melted.
We absolutley loved this recipe! It was probably the easiest thing I've ever made for dinner, had almost no clean-up, and it was delicious! It's definitely a "do again" recipe.

I was always amazed at President Hinckley's optimism and joyful outlook. For a man who knew more about the situations of the world than most of the rest of us, he also knew without a doubt that this world is only a temporary situation, and there is so much hope in the gospel!
We'll sure miss him. I remember President Hunter (the president before Hinckley) only a little, but most of my life I have known Gordon B. Hinckley as the prophet. My prayers are for the Hinckley family, and also for President Thomas S. Monson, who will now follow President Hinckley and be ordained the next prophet of this church. I'm sure that is an overwhelming feeling! But he will do a great job, too, because that's how this Church works, and because it is surely led by the Lord, not by man.

"Okay. What is it?"
"We toss 'em, they're Awesome."
Me, laughing, "What?"
"Well, I'm not sure where the tossing part comes in, but you are awesome."
More laughing. "Where did that come from?"
"A pizza place in Gustine." And then he rolls back over to go to sleep.
What a funny guy! I sure love him! And it's nice to know that he thinks I'm awesome. :D

We got our wedding photos this week. Wahoo! It's been so fun to look through them. (a.k.a. I haven't been doing my homework because I've been too busy looking at pictures) I'm making a Blurb book www.blurb.com of pictures from our wedding day so we'll have a nice photo album to remember everything. Kent says that making blurb books is my form of video games. It's addicting! And today we had a bunch of our pictures printed off. Now there are only a few empty picture frames on our walls. :D
So here's a few of them (our photographer gave us 2735 pictures total!):
It's been a very, very busy week. Between school and work and homework, there's really no free time for Kent and I. But we're doing very good. We got a new car because of a problem with the auction and the first one we had, and we really like the new one. It's a 2001 Volkswagon Passat. And the best part is, it has heated leather seats! In Rexburg, that's like a little taste of heaven early in the mornings.

B-Best Friend- Kent; he's such a great example to me and makes me want to be better. Also, I'm always laughing when I'm with him. He is so silly and it makes me very happy.
C- Cake or pie- Cheesecake--kind of a pie but with cake in the name.
D- Day of choice- Friday
E- Essential item- Chapstick
F- Favorite color- Light Green
G- Gummy bears or worms- Gummy bears, but never in ice cream! They're too hard when they get cold.
H-Hometown- Logan, Utah
I- Indulgences- I love graham crackers with frosting dipped in milk. I can eat that forever.
J- January or July- July
K- Kids- none yet. Kent keeps saying we're going to have 18 total. I think (hope) he's joking.
L- Life is incomplete without- My husband
M-Marriage date- December 18, 2007
N- Number of siblings- 3 brothers, 1 sister. I'm the oldest.
O- Oranges or apples- Apples with the dip I make with cream cheese, vanilla flavoring, brown sugar, and peanut butter.
P- Phobias or fears- I'm always afraid of writing something with grammar or punctuation errors. It doesn't bother me in other people's stuff, but in my own I am a perfectionist! (I've just gone through this whole list to make sure the capitalization and punctuation is consistent with all the letters and my answers.) :D
Q- Quotes- "In living, laugh often. Life is to be enjoyed, not just endured." -President Hinckley. This quote has always been my favorite, and I've tried to make it a motto of sorts.
R- Reason to smile- Kent singing along to the radio (actually there's usually no radio involved--he just sings all the time) or while he's in the shower as if he's in a boy band.
S- Season- Definitely Spring
T- Tag three (or two)- Everyone has already been tagged...
U- Unknown fact about me- I am ambidextrous in my feet. (Kent told me to put that one. I have very movable toes and I use them to pick things up off the floor so I don't have to bend down quite as far and he thinks it's hilarious.)
V- what happened to "V"?
W- Worst habit- Stressing out about things that I don't need to worry about.
X- X-ray or ultrasound-I've only ever had x-rays, but they were never for happy reasons. (broken bones, etc.)
Y- Your favorite food- It really depends on the time of year. Right now my favorite food is a creamy soup or warm pasta with bread.
Z- Zodiac- Gemini

We searched for about 6 or 7 hours out there, using brooms, shovels, hands, and eventually three different metal detectors, but to no luck. His ring was gone for good, or so I thought. We even started shopping around for a new one, but really were hesitating to get one because of the financial factor.
This morning we got a call from my mom. Keep in mind it has snowed a total of 10" in Logan since the day Kent lost his ring, and my parents have shoveled the driveway a number of times since then. But this morning, as she was about to leave somewhere, my mom happened to go walk over the gravel where Kent lost his ring and there it was, just sticking sideways up out of the frozen gravel! We searched that exact spot like 15 times but we just didn't see it. It's incredible that she found it like that. So now Kent only has to use his CTR ring for two more weeks until my family comes up here for the temple dedication and they can bring it with them. Sometimes, little things can be miraculous.

Sorry the pictures are all kind of poor quality. We're still trying to figure out how to get our camera to take good indoor pictures.

Oh, and I still absolutely love my new haircut. Kent likes it a lot, too.
