10th Wedding Anniversary Trip

We Made It to 10 Years!!

Well almost anyway. Our anniversary is Nov. 11th. We decided to take our trip in October because of our schedule. We had such a good time.

We decided to take 3 days and go to Mesa and relax. I really wasn't feeling up to traveling much.

When we first got there we went to the temple. It was so nice to be there together without feeling like we had to hurry back to the kids. We even ate in the temple. I LOVE the temple food!

Then for the next few days we kind of did whatever we wanted. We really didn't have a plan except for a Suns Game. And that was a REAL TREAT! I have never been to a basketball game before. We got tickets from a law firm that works with Jeremy. They have a Suite. It was so nice, and the view was perfect. They had lots of food and drinks. It was fun to enjoy something like that with Jeremy without all the interruptions. It was almost like we were dating again! I really enjoyed the game much more than I thought I would.

We had a great time eating at fun places, walking the mall, and shopping at other fun stores we don't usually get to with all the kids.

Best part was Jeremy took me to a Salon and had my hair cut and styled. I LOVE the cut!

I decided we shouldn't wait 10 more years to get away again!

Changes are in the air! I love this time of year!!

{I am able to keep my door open most of the day

{I am finding some really great fall recipes

{and when Jeremy and I sit outside in the mornings & evenings I need a sweater! Did I mention I LOVE sweaters!!

I received an email this morning stating "It Was Time". "What had happened to me?" and that "I really needed to update my blog". {Thank you to my Dear Sweet Friend, who I miss a ton, and would really love to be able to hang out with, she also shares my love for FALL!} And while I knew it was true, I have been putting it off. Our family has been sick on and off for about 2 weeks. I am SOOOOOO tired of sick kiddos!! I think we might FINALLY be over all of it. That makes me so happy!

Jeremy and I have both had birthdays. The kids were so disappointed we didn't have cake. On my birthday I was so sick I couldn't get off the couch, so cake was the last thing on my mind. Jeremy's birthday was fun. I made a yummy soup with topping, and I made an Apple Crisp and we had ice cream with it. I can't believe we are so old!!

Last weekend we decided to buy a different vehicle. I absolutely LOVE my Armada. But we are just growing out of it. Kids need more leg room and I need to grocery space. We went with a 9 seat Excursion. I LOVE it! It is SO roomy. Can't wait to go Grocery Shopping!

We have have tons of stuff going on, but with being sick it has all kind of blurred together! I appreciate my health so much more now.

One thing I HAVE to blog about is 3 dear friends. I had been really sick and my house was getting the best of me. While on the phone with one of them I was complaining about it. Well, a couple days later she calls and tells me she is coming to get my kids and will be back with another girlfriend to clean my house. I was mortified! I have done things like that for other people, but have never experienced myself. Well, she reminded me of the RS lesson we had were we are suppose to let other gives service and not refuse them blessings. Well, it was super hard, but I appreciated it SOO much! That to me is what the Gospel is all about. And I had never experienced it on the other side. I would have had NO problem going to there homes and doing the same thing. But to sit while they were serving me was really hard! But it was a wonderful reminder to me that Heavenly Father does love me and it aware of me! Them my sweet visiting teachers brings me dinner, yummy canned treat, and a yummy plate of cookies. That week was a good one for me. Even though I was so sick, I felt better by being loved!

Oh, and I have to mention Conference Weekend. I love Conference. And this one came at a time in my life when I had many questions and struggles going on. And what do you know, they had all the answers I was looking for. I am so grateful for a living Prophet today. And for Apostles and leaders who are inspired from the Lord!

Sweet is the peace the Gospel brings!
