March Visiting Teaching Handout.

Raise your hand if you can't believe it's already MARCH?!
Seriously...before we know it, Easter will be over and we'll be diving into summer! Time sure does fly when 
you're havin' fun.

This month's Visiting Teaching message is on.....

A large portion of this lesson is taken from 
President Uchtdorf's talk: Continue in Patience.

I love President Uchtdorf.

I feel as if he speaks right to my soul.

As I looked up the talk, to read it in it's entirety...I came across THIS Mormon message.  Watch it.  It's great. It includes portions of this talk as well....and the one main point I'm using for this handout.

Which...if you haven't guessed by now...involves marshmallows. 

These fun 'gourmet' marshmallows were found at 
Target for $2.99, back in their Easter section.

Strawberry marshmallows are fun to give too and only $1.29.

The Easter Bunny marshmallows {as seen up top!} 
were only .99 cents.

To download President Uchtdorf's 
Marshmallow story click HERE.

To download my PATIENCE tag to attach to the bag of marshmallows click HERE.

{The idea is to give your sisters the story ALONG with a bag of marshmallows and the tag attached.}

There are 3 tags to a page and 2 stories to a page.
You can print them out however many times you'd like!

As always - if you plan to download any of my tags - I 

just ask that you PLEASE make sure to become 

an official follower of my blog

my social media sites

 *Ideas are posted daily!*

Also - - I am MORE than flattered when others

 'replicate' my ideas and come up with their 

'own' tags.  I just 

PLEASE ask that you give credit where credit 

is due when posting, and please link back to 

this original post.  xoxo

Happy Visiting Teaching!

This Weekend {+ Happy March!?}

* I helped out in London's Kindergarten class.

London has the BEST Kinder teacher around....and boy oh boy does she have a special kind of patience for those kiddos. Kudos to Kinder teachers everywhere!
 I don't know how you do it!

* Joe and I met up with some of our fun friends at Garcia's Friday night for Happy Hour. 
{Seriously, how can you resist half price appetizers and Diet Coke with lime?}

We had a bit of time to kill afterwards so we stopped by one of our favorite places in the world.....

Yup. This is where it all began, folks.
Joe + Marci 4 forever.
We got married in this beautiful place {almost!} 12 years ago.

Although we now have a temple right down the road from us in Gilbert, this temple will always hold a special place for us in our hearts.

* After walking around and admiring it's beauty...we headed onto a show, featuring my talented brother-in-law William.

He was the guest AND musical guest.
It was kind of a big deal.

* Saturday morning sports.

We froze our little tails off watching Carson play soccer. 
{It was in the 60s and windy!}

And then....
after going an entire season of losing....
Joe and Grant's team WON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Their last and final game!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
IN the Championship GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To say that we were all ELATED is an understatement!
{The photobomber above was not an official member of the team. Lol.}

Joe did SUCH a good job coaching these kiddos and they ADORED him to pieces. They played their hearts out every single week and we could not have been more proud!

* Saturday night date night HERE.

Soooooooo delish.
I had the philly cheesesteak and Joe had the ribs 
{and might've even spilled a little sauce on his tie after this photo was taken}.
We LOVE this place!

* Afterwards we headed to our Adult Session of Stake Conference.  This session is ALWAYS my favorite.

Elder Rafael E. Pino of the Quorum of the Seventy came to speak to us and Joe and I both left feeling
 uplifted and edified.

Elder Pino {from Argentina} gave his entire talk in Spanish and had a man there to translate everything into English. 
 The spirit was SO strong. It truly touched our hearts.
We left feeling better because of it

* The boys were up most of the night coughing so there was no church for us on Sunday.

We spent the entire day lounging around in our jammies and it was JUST what this family o' mine needed.

We've had the windows open all day with a nice little breeze coming through...as we wait for it to rain. 

The ultimate bliss.


Happy March 1st.
What the what?!?
How did it get here so fast?

Tomorrow on the blog....
my MARCH Visiting Teaching handout!

New Items in my Etsy Shop!

SUPER excited about some NEW items I've just added to my Etsy shop.  They go PERFECTLY along with the 2015 Mutual theme: Embark in the Service of God.

Girls Camp is RIGHT around the corner and these items would make a GREAT little gift to hand out.

I have a limited quantity on each of these items so once they sell out...they're gone.

Make sure to order SOONER than LATER to ensure that you get them before they sell out.

Isn't this chunky princess crown charm bracelet adorable?
So many fun things you could do with this.
*Daughter of God
*Daughter of a King
*Princess theme
....the list goes on!

To take a peek at my entire shop click HERE.
And check back often as I'm adding NEW items all throughout the next week! PLUS...I'll be rolling in some Primary and Relief Society goodies too!!

Happy Weekend!
