Live Laugh Love

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about dancing in the rain.

 I absolutely love the weekend, who doesn't? On Friday's I usually don't have to work because I've already worked the max hours during the week(done for a reason). So I only have one class at nine and then the rest of the day is mine. The Friday started out amazing, I actually got up at 6:30 to go to the gym and then was ready to go to class by 9. It was also payday, so I made my way to the grocery store and got some really yummy food for fall cookin! I spent my afternoon with my hair up, apron on, and Paula Dean playing in the background. I made homemade potato salad, fruit salad, and cut up all the fruits and vegetable for the week so I can easily snack on those instead of candy or whatever else I may be craving. I cleaned the house, did laundry, and went to Thai Phan with Amanda to get fall decorations. So, my conclusion is, I love being a wife, a homemaker, and I never knew how happy that makes me feel. I can't wait to learn how to make homemade bread and sew and all that fun stuff. I have a lot of creative friends that are willing to help me learn all these new skills. This weekend's goals: make delicious pumpkin chocolate chip cookies(pictures to come) and a new recipe for Sunday my friend Lori gave me!
 Ps the mountains are turning red, I know you can't see it very well, but that's the view right out my door, and I think they're so gorgeous!

Today was the best day of fall yet. As the evening fell it was this dark orange sky with the clouds that look like you could just jump up and grab them because they look so close and textured. I love those nights. Josh and I went to CPK with Amanda and Brandon, and as we left there was a gorgeous lightning storm, it just makes the night so cozy. I think it's time to whip out the cocoa motion and start making delicious cocoa, cider, and watch hocus pocus!

Conference Weekend

This past weekend Josh and I went out to dinner with my work to Texas Roadhouse! It was so delicious..and free! We had a lot of fun. From there, we headed up to his parents house in Sandy and stayed the night. We always have a good time there, his mom got us an early Halloween treat pumpkin can so I could use it to decorate our house. She always has treats for us when we come up, so it's fun to stay up late and eat them.
My dad got us Saturday morning tickets to conference so we headed to Salt Lake and spent the rest of Saturday with my family. While at conference we ran into my Aunt Joanne and her friend from Africa. She has a new book out from Deseret, she escaped Rwanda and watched her family be killed. She found the church there as well when she received a humanitarian bag from the LDS church. It saved her life and she has an amazing story to share.
The rest of the weekend was a lot of fun. I love being able to hang out with my sisters and their families.
I'm excited for the Ensign to come out so I can read the talks over, I may or may not have slept through some of's hard when you're all comfortable at home!
