It’s crunch time! I have five more classes as a college freshman, one more test, 2 more essays, 2 more projects, and one final. It’s seriously weird that it’s almost over.
I feel like it was just yesterday that I was incredibly sick, wondering how in the world I would be able to choose a school to go to, and pretty much throwing a shot into the dark and coming to Washington. It’s weird how everything just falls into place.
I’ve made some of the best friends I’ve ever had here (two of which I’ll be going to Mexico with at the end of May!! Woohoo…viva Mexico!), joined a sorority (Alpha Phi!), studied my butt off, and taken extremely random classes. It’s been a great year, just off to think that 1/4 of my college career is over. When people say that the older you get, the faster time goes, they aren’t kidding.
And I’m not sure I like it!
This summer will be a blast, and I’m so excited. I’m going to road trip home from Washington to San Diego (follow me on Twitter and Instagram (@rachelconners) for all the pictures of that adventure) and then Mexico, and then working, baking, blogging, and having tons of fun with all my best friends for the rest of the summer. It’ll be a blast, so stick around here and enjoy it with me through some delicious food, alright?!
These bars are everything you want in a bar – chewy, crunchy, sticky, chocolatey, nutty, tender, and absolutely scrumptious. The caramel is not hard to make, so don’t be scared away by that! These aren’t difficult, but people will think they are, so feel free to brag all you want. I didn’t make any changes to the recipe except to put the pecans on top instead of the middle, but that was all for aesthetics. Keep them in the middle, or throw them on top! Either way is delicious. Hope you enjoy!
