This Weekend:

* Friday morning I dropped the kiddies off at school and headed over to our temple.

I am so grateful for this beautiful place, just down the road from us. It was a wonderful morning inside and I left feeling refreshed and renewed.

Their flowers and landscaping are MY FAVORITE...

I grabbed some breakfast and got some work done on my laptop afterwards HERE.

Chips and salsa for breakfast? Why not.
Their breakfast burriots >>> everywhere else. Promise.

Once there was a time when I wouldn't have been caught dead eating at a restaurant all by myself.  Now? It's one of my favorite things!

* Laundry and cleaning for the rest of the day and then dinner with one of my favorite gal pals HERE. Yup...more chips and salsa.  I'm not kidding when I say that we eat WAY too much mexican food over here.

* Ended the evening by watching Dateline with Joe.
We're so romantic.

* Saturday morning breakfast at our local donut joint.

* London and I snuck away for a couple of hours and got our nails done.

London finished first which meant she got to play 'nail tech' on my feet afterwards.

* Date night on Saturday night with some of our dearest friends HERE.

These people just GET us.
I feel like they know our heart and souls and we LOVE them for that.  We also love that we can laugh our heads off with them so much so that our sides hurt afterwards. {We missed you Brooke and Kirk!}

* Churchey-church on Sunday.

* Big fat nap afterwards.
{It's the only good thing about having early morning church, in my opinion}.

* We made ribs for Sunday dinner...

....holy moly! These babies were GO-OD! They fell right off the bone.  Here's how we made em {thanks Rachel for the recipe!}:

We put them into a crockpot and generously salt and peppered them. {My friend puts Paprika on them but we didn't have any.} I then covered the bottom of the crockpot with apple juice {probably like 2 cups worth} and let them cook on low all day.  After about 8 hours, I took them out {they were so tender they were seriously falling off of the bone} and then put them onto a cookie sheet, basted them with BBQ sauce and then broiled them for about 5 minutes.

They were divine.

* We ended our Sunday by letting the kids get their wiggles out in our front yard.  The sunset was pretty much amazing.

AZ sunsets >>> everywhere else.
