Odds & Ends

I have a bunch of random pictures that I decided to put all in one post.

Here we are with Haley & Greg after we toured historic homes in Provo for the 4th of July celebration

Ben and I went on a date! This cupcake is not as good as it looks... from a cupcake place in Provo

Our "livelihood" as I like to call it-- this is a corner reflector Ben uses in his research for his thesis.

My birthday! Kelsey made this cake while I was at Mom & Dad's learning to sew.

While I was away for my birthday at Mom & Dad's, Ben was busy getting me a present. Some of you know that I love maps. Well for my birthday Ben got me a huge map of the world and he's going to use his woodworking skills and build me a frame! I was so surprised and impressed with Ben's gift-giving skills.

Ben bought me a beautiful map for my birthday!! I am so excited.

Since I have been unemployed and having lots of free time, I put together a recipe book. While I was in Illinois Mom Dilsaver gave me a recipe book and all I had to do was type up the recipes. So I gathered all the recipes I usually make along with a few others and typed them all up for this little book! It's actually been really nice, having all the ingredients listed in one place and I don't have to go searching for recipes when I make my shopping list! Thanks for the great gift Mom Dilsaver.

A cookbook Mom Dilsaver bought me.

All the recipes I typed up.

Ben & I went on our ward campout and had so much fun! Here's a pic of us right before we left.

Also, I was going to post a picture of our first crop of cherry tomatoes, but Ben & I tried to take some last night and they looked horrible and we just ended up laughing at them so they're not up here. Just know that Ben has his Grandpa D's touch for gardening and we've been getting a good crop!


  1. Ben has always been a good gardner. How ambitious you are getting that recipe book together too! Glad to hear things are going well!

  2. That reflector just gives me one more reason to believe I could never understand what it is Ben does. He is too smart.

    What is up with this cupcake craze? Maybe you should use your cookbook and set up a cupcake stand outside your apartment. Bling bling!
