To My Girlfriends...

I am only as strong as the chocolate I eat, the hair spray I use and the friends I have. To the amazing women that have touched my life... Here's to you!
What would most of us do without our sisters, confidants and shopping, lunching, and traveling girls?

Super Saturday!

Last Saturday, I went with my mom to her ward's Super Saturday. Basically, a Super Saturday is when the sisters of Relief Society get together and do crafts. I love doing crafts, but never really have time to do anything. It was a lot of fun to get together and spend a day with my mom. Here are some of the things that I did at the Super Saturday.

Cute Candy Jars

'Let It Snow' decoration plate.

Santa Cookie Plate

Mod Podge Pumpkin

This was my favorite. We are going to have to find a place for it this year.

General Conference Weekend

For General Conference, Jared and I decided to take a trip to Utah. We had gotten tickets to go to the Saturday afternoon session of General Conference, also the Friday before Jared had a mission reunion at BYU that he wanted to attend. So we packed our things and went to Utah.
Our first stop was in St. George. We stopped there on Thursday night and spent the evening with Jared's grandparents that live just outside of St. George in Dammeron Valley. It was great spending time with them, since we dont get to see them very often. The following day, after a great breakfast from Grandma, we drove to our hotel in Midvale, UT, which is just 10 minutes outside of Salt Lake City. We had planned to attend a session in the Salt Lake Temple, but we just didnt have enough time before Jared's mission reunion.

Driving to BYU was not a fun drive... apparently there was a BYU football game that evening so the freeways were packed with people trying to get to the game. We finally made it an hour late to Jared's mission reunion. It was so much fun getting to meet a lot of people that Jared served his mission with and especially his mission president and his wife. They are such sweet people and it was great to hear from them, how great of a missionary Jared was. Unfortunately, I was stupid and forgot my camera that night so I dont have any pictures.

The Salt Lake Temple! So Beautiful!!

Saturday of General Conference we got there early and had lunch at the little cafe in the Joseph Smith Building. We had the BEST turkey sandwiches ever!!!! Everything tasted so fresh. I kinda want to go back, just for the sandwich. :) Conference was AMAZING! There is nothing that can compare with the feeling you get when the prophet enters the room and everyone is quiet and stands out of respect. It brought tears to my eyes to see the love everyone has for this wonderful man.

In the Visitor's Center.

They had this cool Jeruselam replica in the Visitor's Center.

I was baptized in the font behind the Tabernacle, I wanted to show Jared the font, but they removed it and built things for the Tabernacle Chior. Here is one of the doors that goes into where the font used to be.

All in all, our weekend was great. There are so many things we didnt get to do that we wanted, and there were so many people that we wish we could have seen, but because of time we weren't able to. Next time... we are flying!
