This Weekend:

* Friday morning started out at Swig with a visit with my sweet friend over a Diet Coke and a pumpkin chocolate chip cookie.

Swig's pumpkin choc chip cookies with cream cheese? 
Not bad!

* Grocery shopped afterwards...

Holy Moly! Fry's had some good deals!!

* Date night Friday night at the Gilbert temple.

It was just where we needed to be.
Things are so still and peaceful inside of the temple.
It was nice to just sit and be with my own thoughts.

* Tacos afterwards...

It was Joe's first time at Rusty Taco and he LOVED it.
I love it too!
Their breakfast tacos + chips and queso are my favorite!

* Back at home for the rest of the night I worked on 

There's something very therapuetic about working around in my craft room with the windows open and Christmas music playing.  Yes....Christmas music.  
I could not hold off any longer!

* Saturday morning London and I hit up a cute, little local boutique nearby.

She felt like she had hit the jackpot that day because I let her get Mountain Dew Voltage on our Circle K run.
{Don't judge}.

* The kids had dance all of Saturday afternoon.
Quick nourishment at the TB afterwards...

And yup...even more Etsy orders Saturday night.

{I 💜missionary ornaments!}

* Churchey-church on Sunday.

Carson gave a sweet talk in Sacrament meeting about 'Asking the Lord in faith'.  I was so proud of him. Hearing my children share their testimonies of our Savior makes my heart about want to leap right out of my chest in gratitude.

Also:  the dude who sat in front of us in Sacrament wore his sunglasses backwards and Joe and I...being the 5 year olds that we are...could NOT stop laughing at the fact that we had to stare at our reflections for the ENTIRE meeting.

Also, also:  Thank you to whomever hung up these sweet signs in the womens restrooms of our ward building.

Needed it!

* We spent Sunday evening over at my parent's house.  
It was our annual tra-dish of having the grandkids help my mom decorate her Christmas tree.

Also, per tradish, my brother made his famous Peanut blossom cookies.

Don't let Joe fool you.  
He didn't help. 
Just taste tested.

Lastly...we drew names for our 'Cousins Gift Exchange' which the kids love so much each Christmas!

It's completely normal to have a doggy gift exchange for all of the dogs in the family too, right?  

Please say yes.

We are slowly on our way to becoming that weird dog family

November Ministering Tags.

Happy November!!

I've been up to my eyeballs making orders for my Etsy shop so I've got bad news and good news.

The bad news is - - I don't actually have a fresh, NEW tag to download for the month of November.

The GOOD NEWS is......I've compiled THREE of my favorites from years past for you to use again.

Surely, you haven't ever used ALL of them, have you?

Enjoy! And please tag me on IG - @azmarci with what you come up with!

2fer Tuesday.


Picked this up a few weeks ago from Bath and Body Works and it is my NEW favorite scent!! Smells SO good!

These are absolutely delish!
We bought a rotisserie chicken last week and made sandwiches with these sliders and they were SO VERY YUMMY!  Found em in the bread section at our grocery store.


Chocolate covered Oreos, Flipz chocolate pretzels, candy corns and candy eyballs. 

Chocolate pudding cups with construction paper!
Clever, huh?
