Provo "Tabernacle" Temple

I can not wait for this:

It is going to be a ZOO when it opens....but I will deal with it. Because it is going to be so beautiful!
I love to see the temple!

Fall is here!

The weather has felt wonderful for the past 2 weeks! Salt Lake is finally having a real fall! I still prefer the 90 degree summer weather, but it's nice to cool off a bit.

Two weeks ago, we had another young women retreat at the most amazing cabin I have ever seen. Most of the day was spent in the kitchen, cleaning dishes and eating leftovers until I felt sick. But the delicious food was worth it! I wish I didn't love food so much.... In the picture above, is the most amazing staff: Amanda, Melissa, Kristen, and Elizabeth.

Speaking of the most amazing staff, Kristen was so kind to buy me cookies for my birthday! The ghosts were the most tasty.
I wish I didn't love cookies so much.....

They also decorated my desk with some pictures from my blog! Steph, look close!

Another video...

I know, I know. I post a lot of videos. Probably because the people in them have more important things to say than I do.

I am constantly amazed by the teachings we receive from our Church leaders. They are so inspired!!!! I listened to to this talk by Elder Bednar a couple years ago.
This video made me so sad. It is so true.

It's all fun & games until someone gets hurt....

Me and Brett had a VERY fun weekend!! We seriously have the best friends in the world, and we're so lucky that they love to be with us as much as we love to be with them!

Friday, we spent some quality time with the Prowse family! 3 weeks is way too long to go without seeing them. We went to the yummy Red Iguana for dinner, and watched a few Office episodes until me and Kami fell asleep!

I went to my FIRST BYU Football game on Saturday. It was quite the experience!! Really, anytime I go down to Provo, it is an interesting experience!

The Godfrey's had extra tickets and invited me and Brett. Luckily, we arrived in Provo a few hours early, so we didn't have to deal with too much traffic. We started off by having dinner at Wingers, one of Brett's favorite restaurants!

 Obviously I don't know the BYU fight song, and I have never heard it before in my life. I could not help but laugh when everyone started singing: "Ra ra ra ra ra ra ra ra ra" It sounded like a bunch of dogs barking. haha! I loved it though.
It was freezing!!!
These Cougar tails were huge! and very yummy!
and.... our husbands are the cutest.
We had an amazing time with our awesome friends!

On Sunday, we finally got to meet Lydia Thurgood. She is the cutest baby of all time! At first, it made me a little baby hungry....but then Megan changed Lydia's diaper 3 times in 15 minutes, and I was back to my normal self. I'm good with just being an aunt for now!
Megan was kind enough to let me feed little Lydia her bottle. It definitely takes practice! Well....I messed up. I was trying to feed her when she wasn't swallowing it....and I almost killed her. She gagged, and couldn't breath for a few seconds. I was on the verge of tears. I felt so horrible (and still do). I will never ever feed another baby unless it's my own. I'm lucky to still have the Thurgood's as my friends after that traumatic experience! ;)

Next fun thing on the list:
Lake Powell!

Mission Reunion & General Conference

Brett's mission reunions are always fun. (usually because there's delicious food) The reunion was down at BYU, traffic down to Provo was horrible. It took us an hour to get there. Plus, there was a football game going on, so I don't think that helped the road situation.
I always meet someone new at these reunions, and they always tell me that Brett was the greatest missionary in the mission. I'm starting to believe them.... ;)

This is President & Sister Sexton, one of the greatest couples on earth! Seriously, President Sexton is brilliant. Whenever Brett has a gospel-related question, he'll ask President, and President will always know the answer.

Conference was amazing! I have been gaining a new appreciation for the leaders in the church, which makes their words so much more inspiring!
My absolute favorite talk, was from Priesthood session, from my favorite apostle, Elder Holland. Every sentance he speaks, gives me chills. I wish I could've been at the Conference Center when he gave this talk.

 And just for fun, me and the nieces played dress up a couple weeks ago. It began with the scarves.
