2nd Edition of the ABCs of Tomoser's Current Life

Arizona! - I had an absolute blast being back in the place I love, visiting the people I love with my Mom whom I also love.
Boxes - lots of them. I'm going through all of my pre and post mission stuff for what to take to Utah, toss and store. Who knew I could have so much random stuff?
Cake - I really want to make a cake today.
Devonshire - the apartment complex I will be living in for Spring and Summer in Provo.
Easter Pageant - Even though I served in the Mesa Arizona mission I was able to see the Mesa Easter Pageant for the first time when I visited. It was fun to see all the missionaries working at the pageant and the pageant itself was pretty great.
Films - I'm catching up on the movies I missed, some good (Avatar, Blindside, Julie and Julia) some not so much (Twilight, New Moon) It's crazy I'm averaging about one a day. Any suggestions?
Guacamole - I'm obsessed with making this avocado based dip. Unfortunately there is no one in my family to share this obsession with. :(
Horseback riding - While in Snowflake, Bro. Turley took me out around his ranch. So much fun, I never thought I'd go horseback riding before I went swimming, but I'm not complaining.
Itouch - do I wait until September and get a Macbook with free itouch? Do I just get the itouch? Do I get anything at all? idebate.
Journal - perhaps to compensate for my lack of post mission journaling, I've been typing up my mission journal.
K - 5 of them. I will be running in the Provo City 5K on May 1. I'm super excited and am training for a new PR. Wish me luck!
Lois and Clark - guilty, very guilty of watching some of the third season again.
Marriott School of Management External Relations Department - my new employer. I start in a couple weeks as a public relations writer.
Nicole LeGrow or Hermana LeGrow - my best Omaha friend came home from her mission today!
Omaha is and will forever be my "Homaha."
Phoenix - not only a place I love but also the name of my first pair of Asics running shoes. I LOVE THEM!
Qudditch - for whatever reason that is what first came to my mind when I was invited to play Bocce ball at the Lussiers in Mesa. I was mistaken. But do enjoy bocce ball a lot actually.
Racquetball - while "playing" with my youngest brother we didn't keep score, but he kept track of how many times I whiffed it...12. Oh well.
Sewing - my grandma who is a master of a seamstress taught me how to hem my own clothes. Very handy for a shorter person like myself.
Thai Curry Chicken - I made this sweet curry for my family for the first time. It was tasty!
Underutilized - this describes how I've spent my time since I've gotten home. It's tough going from really busy to nothing. But I'll be back to being employed and a student in a few weeks and embrace this last little "pause" between my mission and official post-mission life.
Vacation - 15 days of March was spent on two separate trips (Utah and Arizona). Both were fantastic and explains how March went so quickly.
Winner! I won in a Yo-yo contest at our Stake Activity "A 100 years in 100 minutes." What did I win? None other than a yo-yo.
eXchanges - while visiting Arizona, one of my old companions' greenie had to go to the hospital. So I was able to go on "exchanges" and be my old companion's "companion" again, in my third area. It was FANTASTIC!
Yogurt - I have a bowl of Dannon All-natural vanilla yogurt with fruit (strawberries or blueberries) and granola almost everyday. It's my ultimate healthy, "I feel good before, during and after I eat it" food.
Zoo - Phoenix Zoo...check! It's more like an experience being a part of an environment that has some animals in it rather than seeing tons of animals.
