General Conference Treats and Handouts.

General Conference is upon is and I could not be more excited. My heart is eager to begin hearing the words of our church leaders this weekend at the General Womens Session and then again next weekend.

It's always nice to encourage others to share in the joy of this weekend {the messages spoken are always just what I need to hear it seems like!}

I like to create a little handout to attach to something each time Conference rolls around - - to deliver to my friends, visiting teachers, etc. to motivate them to watch General Conference. 

{Hoping to post a BRAND NEW ONE next week!}

For can download and recreate these from years past....

3 BREAD Recipes you really need to try!

Every year around this same time I feel the need to share with my blog readers my 3 FAVORITE BREAD RECIPES.

And good news - - none of them involve yeast.
{Holla! Yeast scares me}.

I've been on a baking kick lately {there's something quite therapeutic about it, right?} and I made up a double batch of my zuchinni bread this afternoon.  My house smells heavenly.

Things you should know about these recipes:

#1. Yes - - I add chocolate chips to EACH one.
How can I not?!

{Of course, you can omit the chocolate chips and add nuts or whatever else fancies your pleasure.}

#2. They're ALL 3 incredibly tasty & super easy.
{2 of my favorite things!}

Random-ness + a Recipe.

I had planned to do my 2fer Tuesday but I just have TOO many random things to share today.

{Happy Tuesday everyone!}

Be still my πŸ’—

Grant sent this to me today from junior high....just because!
I can't even....
{He's totally my favorite for todayπŸ˜†}

* You know how everyone RAVES about the KONG brand for dog toys? 

Well....Kong is really gonna need to step it up a notch because...

What started out as that {with 6 legs!}...ended up as this...

So dog is a beast and we need to find him SOME KIND OF TOY he can't destroy.  



Are these not the most darling little turkey/Thanksgiving place card holders EVER? 

* Speaking of THANKFULNESS...

I think I'm totally gonna do this with my family this year.
So clever, right?

* Last night it was Carson's turn to be in charge of FHE {Family Home Evening}.

I love putting my children in charge of the lessons.
Each week they amaze me at what they come up with.

They're rather simple {we love simple!} and come straight from their hearts.  We usually don't have visuals or even refreshments.  We just sit together for about 15 minutes in our family room and talk about one specific topic....opening and closing with a prayer and song.

Last night Carson talked about BRAVERY and how we need to sometimes just have FAITH and tell others "to heck with it" and do what we think is right.

{The "to heck with it" came straight from his mouth and melted Joe and I's hearts.  I'm pretty sure he wanted to say the REAL h word. He's so dang cute I probably would've let him. πŸ˜‚}

Anyways....we did watch THIS short clip and of course...per usual...I teared up. 
 It was exactly what I've been needing to hear lately. NEED to try THIS recipe for Chickent Pot Pie.

SOOOOOO yummy! 
I thought about making a crust from scratch but then thought "to heck with it"πŸ˜‚ and used a Pillsbury refrigerated one {just like the recipe calls for} and it tasted DIVINE!
