Our last weekend before finals left us with a full Friday to spend "studying."
Ben had been dying to go biking again and I was up for an excuse to try out my new camera.
Sorry for this picture overload :)

We had just an hour or so when we got home before we were supposed to meet friends for our triple date. I had made pizza dough and left it to rise a few hours before and so we took a stab at our very frist homemade pizzas!
Pizza #1. BBQ Chicken
I boiled bbq sauce, molasses, and honey together and then added pieces of chicken. After pouring that mixture on the dough we loaded it with pepperjack and cheddar cheese. Delicious.
Pizza #2. Silano
Inspired after Bertuccis' Silano pizza (my absolute favorite), I added some lemon pepper marinade to a basic cream sauce (butter, cream cheese, cream, flour). We added chicken, broccoli, and parmesan cheese. Not quite Bertuccis, but delicious none the less.
Then we headed up to Salt Lake City to see the lights at Temple Square.
We were joined by two of our favorite couples:
Carly and Ryan from Together We Can
and Brooke and Sam who blog over at Silver Lining.
We had so much fun just strolling through Temple Square, taking pictures, and enjoying dessert. I never knew eggnog icecream could taste that good :)
I forgot to tell you about our near death experience on the way up to Salt Lake. We were driving rather fast, along with all the other cars in the far left lane, when suddenly the car in font of us SLAMMED on his brakes. Ben and his reflexes did the same thing and we skidded to a stop just a foot behind the other car. It took a few minutes before my breathing got back to normal.
On the way home to Provo we started to notice the car sounding a little funny. Ben was having trouble keeping it straight and at one point I was sure the front right tire was going to fall off. We managed to get off the exit and to the side of the road just in time. We were grateful for friends a few minutes behind us who waited with us for the tow truck and took us home. It was an exciting ending to a wonderful night....although this particular type of excitement I could have gone without.
