This Weekend:

* Friday morning I got the kiddies off to school and then headed to the Temple.

I love walking outside of the temple and seeing all of the gorgeous flowers planted everywhere.  The purple ones always stand straight out to me. 
{Anything purple does, really}.

* Afterwards I stopped for a treat at Swig
{Why can't every treat place have a drive thru?
 Is that too much to ask?}

Ok....I tried their salted caramel toffee SCONE {with a Diet Coke, of course} and OH MY GOSH you guys!!!!! I've been dreaming of it ever since!!!

The texture and flavor were PERFECT!!!
I want another one!!!

* Worked on Etsy stuff the rest of the day and then Joe and I met some of our very dearest friends for dinner at Zinburger on Friday night.

{Missed you Dave and Tiff!}
It's so wonderful to have friends that you can go without seeing for weeks {sometimes MONTHS!} and then you just magically pick up where you left off from the last time you were all together.  These friends have become like family to us and we sure do cherish our friendship with them.

Side note: the zuchinni fries at Zinburger are a MUST try!  

* Saturday the kids had a Dance Convention to attend in Phoenix.

They all 3 got to attend a master Hip-Hop class together and it was SO fun to peek in and see them dancing together. 

Makes my momma heart so proud to see them all doing something that they LOVE to do TOGETHER!

* Saturday night Joe and I attended the adult session of our Stake Conference.  If I'm being honest...I didn't really wanna go.  I wasn't feeling so hot but knew we should probably be there.  We went and...gosh dang if it wasn't the best meeting EVER!!!  I am so glad we were there.

It was all about 'Ministering' to our spouses, our children, our neighbors and it was EVERYTHING I needed to hear.

Two of my favorite quotes from the evening:

"Loving or Ministering is a choice we make."

"True forgiveness is when you remember...but you choose to forget."

* Sunday morning I stayed home from church because I still was feeling...not so hot.  

I spent most of the day typing up my Grandpa's letters from WW2.  I'll spare you the gushy-ness I feel when I type these letters up.  Just know....they've been life changing for me.  

* London chose a movie on Netflix for us all to watch.

Oh my goodness...such a cute movie.
Even the boys liked it!!

* We had our usual pot roast and mashed potatoes for dinner on Sunday night with glazed carrots and biscuits and it made for the perfect ending to a pretty darn good weekend.
