Rocket Launch!

Earlier this month, June 1st to be exact, the Physics Club of Green River Community College had a super fun activity! We launched rockets! Each of the member of the Physics Club was given a budget of $15 per person for the rocket. The Physics Club bought it for us, how awesome! Anywho, my friend Jessica and I decided to do a rocket together. That means we had $30 budget! We bought a nicer rocket, the name is Estes Screaming Eagle. The rocket looks a lot like a fighter jet. We got the rocket maybe a month before the launch but since we were so busy, we didn't really start assembling the rocket until 3-5 days before the launch date.

This is the picture of the rocket that we assembled.

Since both Jessica and I were busy, we didn't have time to buy gray spray paint. I just went with whatever spray paint that I found at home, which was black color with some specks of copper. So our rocket didn't look like the picture up there, here is how it looks like.

Do you see the little missiles? So cute! Anyway, this isn't the first rocket that I've made. Two years ago I made a rocket, it was my very first rocket so it was simple beginner rocket and not as hard to assemble as the Screaming Eagle. Below is a picture of the rocket that I assembled two years ago

I know it looks huge in the picture, but the rocket is only about 6 inches tall. My friend had orange and black spray paint so I thought it would be fun to make a tiger pattern. Even though it took quite a while to do it, it was easy, all I had to do was paint the rocket orange, tear some masking tape and put it together in a way that it would look like a tiger stripes, and then spray the black paint over it.

Jessica and I had tons of fun during the event. It was such a nice day! Early June in Seattle area, no one can expect to have a nice sunny day but we were glad that it was such a nice day!

(That's me and Jessica, notice the nice sunny background)

I have a video here if you want to see how the rocket launched. It went really well, the parachute worked too! I was *this* close to catching it, you can see in the video. Btw, you can skip to 0:50 on the video.

It was a great day! I think it's safe to say that all of us had tons of fun! I'm gonna miss GRCC's Physics Club

This isn't a sponsored post. I just think it's so awesome that you NEED to know this.

I use Google Chrome. Do you? Do you? At least if you don't, I hope you use Firefox. Idk... Internet explorer is just not for me.

So I use this extension on Google Chrome called AdBlock Plus. What it does is well... it blocks ads. It is awesome. It blocks annoying ads. Not only the pop up kind, or those on the sidebar of a page (like on Facebook), it even block video ads on YouTube! Is it awesome or what?

Anywho, if you use Google Chrome, you can add the extension here. It is free. If you use Firefox, you can go here.

If you use Internet Explorer, please help yourself make your life a bit easier by changing to Google Chrome or Firefox

I hope this helps! Please don't feel offended if you use Internet Explorer, I don't hate you guys, IE simply just doesn't do it for me. My husband actually uses Internet Explorer... It works for him, I guess!

Tater Tots Casserole

Growing up, I have always loved Tater Tots. It's just sooo good. You can bake Tater Tots in the oven instead of frying it, it becomes crispy and just delicious!

Anywho, this is another recipe that I found through Pinterest. Pinterest is so addicting, I like to look for recipes there.

Mr. Bee and I (especially I) really loved this stuff. It was so easy to make, too! Umm.. maybe I will make it for dinner sometime next week. I forgot to take the pictures of each step, but it's pretty straight forward.

Bacon, Egg, and Toast Cups for Breakfast!

So I came across this on pinterest. It's bacon, egg and toast in a cup! I like bacon, I like egg, and I like toast, so having it in a cup is just super cute!

[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="225"] Source:[/caption]

I tried making it for Mr. Bee, he loved it!

Bacon, Egg, and Toast Cups (recipe adapted from Martha Stewart)

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

  • 6 slices white or whole-wheat sandwich bread

  • 6 slices bacon

  • 6 large eggs

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spread butter lightly on muffin cups. You just want to spread enough so that the bread won't stick.

Flatten the bread, I used my fingers but you can use a rolling pin if you want. You want to flatten it so that everything will fit in the muffin cup! After you flatten the bread, cut the bread crust, and slice it into half to have smaller, square-ish bread pieces. In Martha Stewart, they used a cookie cutter to cut the bread into a circular shape, and then they cut it in halves. In the end, it looks prettier, so you can do that if you'd like. I was too lazy so I didn't do that.2013-05-26 10.02.24

Fit the bread into the muffin cup. Each cup uses 2 halves. It will overlap a little in the middle. Make sure to have no gap on the bottom to prevent the egg from 'leaking' out of the bread cups.

Spread the rest of the butter on the bread. This will make the bread crispy when baked in the oven.

Lay bacon in across the cup. The bacon needs to be cooked for a little bit, but don't worry about getting it to be really crispy. It will cook more in the oven.

Crack an egg in each cup. Sprinkle pepper and salt!
2013-05-26 10.20.42

Bake for 20-25 minutes. I baked it for 25 minutes because I like my yolk not too soft.
2013-05-26 10.49.21

Yay done! Mr. Bee and I ate 3 each (I know, way too much for a person haha).

Anywho, if you would like to try it, I recommend going to the recipe at Martha Stewart as they have a video there! The video explained it really well, so it should help :)

Open House

My husband and I got married on May 17th, 2013 and we had an open house the next day.

Why an open house? Well I'm a college student haha so we need to safe money. My parents-in-law have a beautiful home with a gorgeous backyard. That means we didn't have to decorate like crazy! Yay awesome!

Oh btw, this is the picture that we used in the wedding invitations, Stefanie took the picture. She's so talented!Invitation Picture(I don't wanna put the picture of the invitations with the address and stuff)

So, the open house turned out very well! Mr. Bee and I spent most of the time just standing, greeting, and talking with the guests in the living room. A funny moment was when the Jensens came and then Mr. Bee got to talk about snowboarding. He went downstairs and showed them his snowboard. Does any other groom do this? He's pretty funny

Snowboard in the Open houseBtw, a lot of people helped with the open house! From cutting the lettuce for the salad, to decorating the tents! We had tents up because the weather forecast said that it would rain that day. It sprinkled a bit, but the tents really worked out well.

We had a simple wedding and a simple open house. Mr. Bee and I are pretty laid back. I didn't really choose a color, I just knew I wanted pastel colors. As the wedding day came closer though, it went more to a yellow and blue color. They are cute together!

Hummingbird CupcakesLynne baked these Hummingbird cupcakes! So cute! The flowers on top are made of thinly-sliced pineapple that is dried in the oven. It's so pretty and it's yummy too! If you wanna make it, click here for the recipe

I will need to look for more pics to add! I will update in the future!

The First Buzz

Hello world!

Well so I decided to start a blog...

Anywho, This is Dita or Mrs. Bee. I just got married about a month ago, on May 17th 2013 to my husband aka Mr. Bee.  <3

The wedding was small, we had it in the living room of Mr. Bee's parents. Only family and close friends came to the wedding. It was cute and small, I think about 30 people came, most were from the Mr. Bee's side of the family. Bishop Williams, who was the bishop at the ward where Mr. Bee and I met, performed the ceremony.

So.. before the wedding ceremony something happened. You see, I didn't buy a dress. I borrowed a dress from Mr Bee's cousin, Megan. The dress is soooo beautiful and I'm very grateful that she let me borrow it! The dress fit me really well, and it made me look like a had a small waist. Anywho, so I put the dress on about 10-15 minutes before the ceremony started. Because I had to wait, I decided to sit down. About 5 minutes sitting down, the dress made this noise "ZZZTTTTT"! Umm the zipper had popped open! So Lynne (Mr. Bee's mom), Michelle (my hostmom when I went to UT), and Teddi (my best friend) helped to try to unzip the dress and zip it up again. It was a bit of a struggle. After trying for a few minutes and didn't succeed, Lynne decided to say a prayer. After she said the prayer, we tried it again, and it worked! The zipper slid like butter! Yay problem solved! Well, so remember guys, prayer really does work ;)

After the ceremony, Teddi sang and it was beautiful! She sang 'The Way I am' by Ingrid Michaelson. I guess that made it our song :)

And then Dale (and Marissa) took our pics!

Wedding Picture

We took a funny picture too! Except Wade didn't realize that....

Goof BallsI guess that's it for the first post! Next post will include the open house!

P.S. Don't you just love the bouquet? They are peonies! Our talented neighbor, Stefanie arranged them!
