Almost Time...

It's almost time for our trip to Mongolia!

I am so excited to be able to spend time in the country that my husband loves. To meet some of the people that he touched and served. To hear him speak the language all the time and guide me around a foreign country with his knowledge of the land. I am excited to have the opportunity to go to church while we are there- Although I will not be able to understand anything I know it is going to be amazing. I am so thankful that my husband chose to serve the Lord for 2 years. I have been putting together his scrapbook from his mission. He was smiling in EVERY picture. The pictures of him baptizing families in the river is so beautiful- I can't wait to go visit those places I have seen in pictures.

I am a little nervous since I have never really been out of the country. (We went on a cruise to Mexico but I don't think that counts.) I am kind of a picky eater.. OKAY I AM TOTALLY A PICKY EATER! I want to bring a 5lb bag of pretzels and boxes of crackers. But I know I am going to have to be polite and try the food when we are invited to eat with some of the people.

I am getting my camera ready, with extra memory sticks. I cannot wait to document this whole adventure.

Wish me luck!

Last weekend was so fun! My friend, Bre and I went to Arizona! The sun was amazing. I wish it would visit Utah for a while! Our adventure, once we landed started with a total rip-off called a RENTAL CAR! We were quoted $60 and it ended up being close to triple that amount.. BUMMER!
No worries- we did not let that put a damper on our trip!
Evidence below, that the sun was shining! Even at 6AM it was bright and sunny!

The view from where we were laying out for the day! The pool was amazing! We stayed at the Wigwam Golf Resort and Spa.. IT WAS BEAUTIFUL!
Our hotel room was so large. The closet was huge, nice kitchen area, large bathroom and lots of space!!

A necessity!
Lastly, a picture of my shining face while enjoying laying out!

The Sun, a good book, an ice water, shopping and girl talk... All elements of a fantastic weekend!!

Lou goes to Prom!

My little sister Lacey went to Prom this last weekend! Her & Cody started the day out with a four-wheeler ride and lunch from Subway. Then she came home and got ready for the dance! It was so much fun to help her get ready for her date! Lacey is beautiful and is growing up so fast!
Ash came down with me for the day! He is such a trooper! He grew up with one brother so to come hang out at my family's house is sometimes a little overwhelming with all the females! Then Chad had to stick his finger up his nose for a picture.. Typical 12 year old boy I guess.
