This Weekend:

* Friday's are quickly becoming my designated day to hit up all of our local Goodwill stores. I'm becoming slightly obsessed.  HOWEVER...the first one I went into SMELLED LIKE someone had gone to the bathroom in the middle of the store {and I don't mean #1}.

For real.
It reeked.

Why are some thrift stores like this?

I held my breath as long as I could and luckily....I scored another milk glass vase for my collection....


* Ran errands most of the morning. I was on the hunt for outfits for my kids to wear for their talent show try-outs.
{These kids of mine are very specific!}

All 3 of them are trying out this week.
Not together. Separately.
Fingers crossed.

* Joe and I met his parents for lunch HERE...


We've recently just discovered this little gem and while their salsa is a tad too spicy for my liking - - it sure is good.

* Date night at a new chinese restuarant that we love LoVe LOVED!!!


SO excited to have found this place.
Growing up back east - good chinese places were on every corner.  
Not so - - here in AZ.

Dessert HERE afterwards.


This place is SO yummy and has such a fun patio out in the back.  And let's be honest...Joe and I could've shared ONE. Why did we feel the need to get TWO? They are HUGE!

* Random side note: I've found a new book that I HIGHLY recommend.  It's called "The Christ Centered Home" by Emily Belle Freeman and it is pretty much the BEST thing I've read in a long time.  Friday night I came across this page and it spoke to me like nothing else....


Abe the Babe has always been one of my faves.
This is yet another reason why.

* Saturday basketball game for Grant.


They WON and he scored a 3 pointer in the last few seconds of the game!!! I'm not even lying -- I was SO excited and when I jumped up in the stands to cheer for him I might've peed a little.  

Carson got a new shirt {Goodwill find for $1.99} and he was SO excited to show it Grandpa at the game.


I'm not sure WHO was happier about this find.
Carson. Or Grandpa.
{Go Utes!}

* We visited my dear friend Judy in the hospital afterwards. 
Poor lady broke her ankle and she broke it BAD!


She and my mom will probably kill me for posting this pic but it just makes me happy.  They're always laughing  {even in hard times!} and this pic just captures that. 

* Saturday night our ward had a family BBQ at the park right by our house.


SO fun! 
Have I ever mentioned how much I LOVE where we live?
{Oh wait, I have?}

* Churchey-church on Sunday for Joe and the boys -- I stayed home with London who was complaining of a sore throat and in desperate need of a nap.

* Sunday night I had some women over for a committee meeting that I'm in charge of...


If there's not yummy treats involved, than why bother, right?
LoL jk.
{Thanks to my cute niece who whipped them up for me!}

I am REALLY excited about the things we are planning.
Locals: We are planning our big Stake Womens Conference in the fall and it is going to be FABULOUS!
