Gotta love Girlfriends!!!

I really miss Steve when he is traveling with work. I am glad he likes what he does and he is so good at it too!! I am lucky to have wonderful girlfriends that take care of me while he is away. Girlfriends are the best!!!

 This weekend the sisters in the ward threw me a baby shower. So Sweet!!! Our ward is extremely humble and they are all so thoughtful. Many of the ladies  are my grandma's age.Seriously I got a good laugh Steve's and I first Sunday.  Everything had to be repeated in Relief Society. No one could hear. Kind of funny !!! I didn't know how I was going to relate to them.  That changed quickly they befriended me and made me feel  welcome within minutes.  The gospel is a wonderful thing.  Wherever you live or wherever  you go, you will be loved and taken care of. Girlfriends come in all ages. What would  I  do  without them? The picture above is some of my close friends  that made the trip to my baby shower. It was wonderful to see them.

Deep in the heart of TEXAS!!!

Steve and I are very excited !!! We just booked our plane tickets to go to TEXAS for Christmas. Steve's brother and sisters live there. I also served my mission there too!!! ( See entry below)  We have really missed being around family. Plus Steve's little niece and nephews are the cutest little kiddos ( see picture above) We can't go another Christmas without seeing them. TEXAS or BUST!!! 

Excited to see my PEEPS!!!

Many of you might know that I served my mission in TEXAS!!! Since we are going there for Christmas I get to visit many of  the people I was able to teach. They changed my life forever. When I first got my mission call I told myself I would never fall into the whole TEXAS PRIDE thing. Haha all I can say folks it's Contagious !!! I caught it quick and I fell hard. In fact after I returned home I hung the Texas flag over my bed in my apartment for years. The kindest, friendliest and funniest people I have ever met. I can honestly say on a hourly basis I was cracking up .( I promise I  really did preach the gospel too!!)  They will always have my heart :} I love TEXAS!!!!

Gotta love La Maze!!!!

Steve and I have started some La Maze classes. I guess we aren't the best people to pretend to be serious. This is bad, but we end of laughing really hard for the majority of the class. I think the thing that gets us going is when I have to "Pretend" I am in labor and to have to breathe really heavy.  It has been fun and we are trying to learn as much as we can . I have come to realize that classes that require me to be really serious, I probably shouldn't sign up for. In fact in college my sister and I tried to take a yoga class. I just am not very flexible and both her and I just laughed the whole entire class.  I just  could not get into some of the positions without cracking up .

 The picture above is taken at one of my good friends wedding receptions. The street that is was near was called LOVERS LANE kind of fun. I love going to wedding receptions because it makes you think back on when you got married and makes you realize how lucky you are to have found the person that is so perfect for you. You're the best Steve!!!
