An "Ahhh haaa" moment.....

This was so profound and hit me hard so I had to share it.
"The price of peace is righteousness. Men and nations may loudly proclaim, 'Peace, peace,' but there shall be no peace until individuals nurture in their souls those principles of personal purity, integrity, and character which foster the development of peace. Peace cannot be imposed. It must come from the lives and hearts of men. There is no other way."
--Ezra Taft Benson ,Quoted By Thomas S. Monson, "Finding Peace",

The Biggest Loser Friends & Family.......

I'm sure I will hear about this in the morning but I'm posting it anyway!!!!

12 short weeks ago my hubby joined a Biggest Loser (Friends and Family Edition) competition. May I just say how proud I am of him! He has been a machine (and I'm not the only one who has called him that!) Working out two times a day (spinning being one of them sometimes both) eating healthy and sharing healthy recipes!

He lost 46 lbs !!!

Notice the "Trophy Husband" t-shirt I found for him!!!

"In the many trials of life, when we feel abandoned and when sorrow, sin, disappointment, failure, and weakness make us less than we should ever be, there can come the healing salve of the unreserved love in the grace of God. It is a love that lifts and blesses. It is a love that sustains a new beginning on a higher level and thereby continues from grace to grace."

--James E. Faust

Up for a challenge???

The first five people to respond to this post will get something from me!
My choice.
For you.
This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
1- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make.
2- What I create will be just for you.
3- It'll be done this year.
4- You have no clue what it's going to be (nor do I at this point).
The catch is that you must re-post this on your blog and offer the same to the first 5 people who do the same on your blog.
The first 5 people to do so and leave a comment telling me they want to receive a homemade gift from me will indeed receive one.
Be sure to post a picture of what you win when you get it!!!


Today was our first Letterboxing adventure!! We had a great time and it was a perfect day to do it! Our first attempt was a trail that crossed a creek...we had to postpone that one...their was to much water to cross without getting all wet! So we ended up at the town square (courthouse) in Prescott.

Daughter of a King....

Tonight was our much anticipated "Daughter of a King" Parent Orientation Night for Activity Days. The night was a success thanks to 3 of the best Leaders in the whole world! Thank you SO much Jennifer, Sara and April for your love and dedication to "our" girls!

Camping out...

It's amazing what you find when you clean your room!! After cleaning his room Connor happened upon his pup-tent and decided he was going to camp out in the living room. Complete with crickets chirping in the back ground (thanks to a cheap sound machine I received free in the mail sometime ago) he drifted off into a dream filled sleep.

Now we just need to work on actually staying IN the tent while we sleep!

Well all my beautiful readers I have a confession to goes:

My wonderful husband approached me the other night and said "I need you to set me up a blog." Well I was surprised to say the least. I did as he asked and thought...well this should be interesting! Now that I have had more time to think about it I realize how intimidated I am about this whole business about him entering the blogging world. You see, it is not to well known how insightful, witty,eloquent & a little quirky my husband is...and I'm not sure I want it to get out!

Oh well the cat has to be let out of the bag sometime! Please visit his blog here:

My Big Fat BlogBe careful about your may just egg him on! :)

I love you honey!!
