Dr. Visit

Our doctor was on Good Things Utah this morning!

Read the article here.

I'm also thinking about starting a support group. I need it and I understand that there are a lot of women in our ward who could use a shoulder to cry on too. I don't exactly know how to lead a support group but I guess I'll figure it out.

Spring Vacation

Dave and I spent the weekend out of town. Recognize where we were?

At one point I was unwillingly idled looking down the barrel of a cannon. Unnerving.

Any other ideas?

Give up?

We went to

We were like two kids on the loose in the Magic Kingdom and had so much fun! We came home exhausted with blisters on our feet and sunburned noses, but never once thought about work or our callings for three whole days. It was a much needed, much deserved break.

This is the face of relaxation.

I know it's blurry but what a cute kid!

2nd Anniversary

Dave and I tried to re-live our honeymoon for our 2nd wedding anniversary.

Here was the view from our room.

But here was the view from our car.

Yep, snow in Hawaii. Go figure.

Twice this week I walked into my office to find gifts sitting on my desk.

from the Young Women board

from my sweet husband

I'm still accepting presents. Just leave them with our front receptionist or in my office in the back corner.

Thank you!

This weekend I had the unique opportunity to scan tickets on the east ramp of the Conference Center at a couple of general conference sessions. This morning our office intern and I showed up at our post there on the ramp and noticed we had a very similar color scheme going on with our clothes. I was wearing a purple blouse with a black sweater and grey skirt. She had on a black skirt, grey blouse, and purple sweater. We laughed when we saw each other -- great minds think alike!

A few of the sisters who came in mentioned our matching clothes. Then just as the morning conference session was about to begin, the presiding authority walked toward us. He pointed to me and said, "Lavender." Then to the intern, "Lavender." And then at his own tie, "Lavender!"

Yes indeed, great minds think just alike!
