Playing Catch Up

Dear Faithful Readers, (Yes all 3 of you if you are still out there!)
                 I would like to apologize for being such a terrible blogger! I will now try to catch you up on my life... using pictures from my phone!
1. Food Phases
Am I the only one who gets stuck on a food for awhile and it is all I eat and love for about two weeks?! Okay I eat other things too but I generally have one thing at a time that I am really loving- Let me introduce you to one of my latest obsessions. Blog Readers meet the BBQ chicken salad:
BBQ chicken sits on a bed of fresh baby spinach topped with yellow corn, black beans, bell peppers, tomatoes and crushed up brown rice salsa chips! Delicious, easy, and best of all healthy! Also any of you who have become discouraged about finding a Greek yogurt that you can actually swallow (I have tried some gross ones!) Check out All Natural Brown Cow Greek Yogurt with Strawberries on the bottom! The texture is going to be different, it is Greek Yogurt, but it is packed with protein and one of my current food obsessions! Delicious!
2. Ape

I did get this stuffed animal from a male just probably not one you might be expecting! He is about sixty years old and happens to be my accounting professor. Before you get freaked out (especially you mom) let me explain. I, Lacey Jean Bradley, got 100% on one of Jack Petersen's Accounting tests. He always gives a stuffed animal to the highest score and I got one- AH! I was so excited but also terribly embarrassed since there in 100 people in my class and I got it in front of everyone. I was beet red and then had to walk back to my apartment with an ape head sticking out of my backpack (people probably thought I am one of those people who is still obsessed with a childhood stuffed animal that I won't let out of my sight) but I was too happy to care!
3. Girls Day Out
I had the opportunity to watch my niece and nephew the other weekend. Ladd came home early from Ward Clean-Up so I could get down to Orem for my sister's wedding shower! (Yes, another update, Jaycie is engaged!!!) I was getting ready to leave but my niece was bound and determined that she was coming with me! So Mollie May and I set out on our girls day out which was pretty much one of my favorite things ever!
I cannot even tell you how much fun I had with this little girl and how much this day meant to me! We went to the shower (where she was the life of the party!) She played outside in a tent with Uncle Sean and then we went to a gorgeous park in Orem where she fed ducks, ran around, picked up a duck egg and ended up swinging about a full 180 degrees due to this crazy set of swings we found (hence her windblown look) It really was one of my favorite days and I cannot put into words the joy this little girl brings into my life.
Mollie: Lace I love you
Lace: Oh I love you too Mollie Girl
Mollie: And do you know how many children I love?... Only five
Forget my accounting stuffed animal I am one of the five children Mollie May Bradley loves... my life is complete! :)
4. Easter
Does this little boy not just melt your heart?!!! Jax is growing up so fast and looked like a little man in his Easter vest! Everyone loves this little boy and frankly how could you not! This boy is pretty much one of sweetest and most well-behaved kid you'll ever meet! People always want to hold him during church and all the ladies say "Oh my word he just looks like a Precious Moments baby!" (he really does get that a lot!)
Please meet Michael and Olivia, my new niece and nephew:
Here is Olivia (aka Livi or my personal favorite Livers!) in her Easter dress! This little girl is adorable and also incredibly busy! She is always going and going and has the cutest little voice you will ever hear! Ah love her!!
Michael looked so handsome on Easter Sunday! This little boy is so funny and full of energy and is also helping me get over my large personal space bubble haha he loves to be close and says the funniest things! It was also incredibly hard to get him to stand still and not make a crazy face in his picture but about 10 pictures later, I got this one! :) I am so excited to be a part of his and Livi's life and consider it a great blessing and responsibility! Jaycie and Kevin are the cutest couple and I am so incredibly happy for my sister to have found someone who loves her so much and really does treat her like a Queen- I wouldn't be able to give her away to anyone else!
Well there is a quick recap on my life! The CES Fireside tonight is being broadcast from Logan so I better head up to the Spectrum in a few minutes! Also my sweet mom is driving up to Logan as we speak to cook me food for finals week and help me start cleaning my apartment and I can't wait to see her, I am SO excited! Only one more week with 3 finals and I'll be headed back to Ephraim for the summer! I feel so blessed to be able to go back to a place I love so much! I feel overwhelmed lately with the assurance that the Lord is very aware of me and my needs. Things have just been working out lately and I have been able to recognize the Lord's hand in my life! I feel so incredibly blessed, I have been given so much!
