Best Candy EVER!

What if I told you that two amazing things smashed into each other to become the best candy ever? You'd be curious about what those two things were, right? Well, it just so happens that Nestle decided to make girl scout candy bars. Say what? Yeah, a candy bar that tastes just like your favorite cookies. I got the caramel coconut (aka Samoa's) as a gift from the PTA. It was basically the best thing I have ever eaten. So, just as a hint to all my blog readers (yes, I'm talking directly to you mom, grandma, and husband) I will love you even more if I get more caramel and coconut girl scout Crunch bars for my birthday or Christmas. (Just fyi, I'm not as much of a fan of mint or peanut butter)

Springville Art Museum

Doug and I are choosing our own adventures every weekend. Our first adventure was to the Snow Goose Festival and Topaz Internment ruins. Our second "choose your own adventure" was to the Springville Art Museum. The state high school art competition was hosted on the entire first floor of the museum. The second floor featured Utah artists and Soviet Era art.
My favorite high school pots
The medium for this piece was cut paper.

A really cool sculpture of a deer.
A magical mixed media elephant.
I've seen quilling before but never this intricate or intense, or mounted on a crosscut log.
I've always liked beetles.
This whole jellyfish is ceramic.
Each of the tentacles was suspended by fishing line.
The detail in this ink piece named "Rapunzel" were unbelievable.
If this were for sale I would have bought it for my musical bird loving grandparents.
This was one of the coolest pieces of the entire show. It was made with ink splatters.
When we were finished with the high school art show we wandered around to see some of the permanent pieces and other exhibits. I've always loved the sculptures in the atrium. 
This sculpture moves water throughout it and also makes noises.
I'm glad airplanes don't actually look like this, but I do like the angles of this sculpture.
The permanent collection had a few paintings and sculptures that I loved.
Hollyhocks have always been a flower of interest for me.
The colors in this canyon were mesmerizing. 
This is Lady Godiva.
A beautiful natural nursing mother.
There were a lot of Soviet Era paintings on the second floor. They were all very similar in style and depicted every day life.
This painting must have been at least six feet tall and probably ten feet wide.
I liked these cows.
If you'd like to plan your own visit to the museum, go to their website Their exhibits change all the time.
