The latest and greatest

So I haven't felt that we've been doing successful family home evenings. So I got this book that is family home evening for newly weds. So our first real family home evening was on Tuesday. What we did was a scavenger hunt. We had ten items on our paper like married life, yourself, spouse, strength in your marriage, etc. Then we had to find one thing that symbolized each different item. For example a key represented married. The key opens a door to a new chapter in life. It was so much fun! We smiled, laughed, cried(well I did), and it was just so wonderful. The one I loved that Scott did for me was on the strength of our marriage. He had a sponge bob and it talked. So he said it's not the sponge bob, but it what he's doing, he's communicated and that's one of our strengths. He's so clever! Then on the weekend we went to Disneyland. It was pretty intense and Scott fell in love with our picture on the Buzz Lightyear ride and just HAD to e-mail it to himself. Just for the record, the reason why my score is so low is because Scott turns the thing every time I finally get a good aim =)

Pretty intense huh?

Lucky #133

Those of you who know me, know that I've been dancing since I was 2 1/2 years old. I have not kept all of my trophies because when you travel, the suitcase is only allowed so much weight. Our house has a small garage and it was time for me to get rid of my trophies. I took pictures and have a scrapbook I will put them in, but there were just too many. We counted a total of 133, that's how many I kept. My trophies included all kinds of different competitions like showstoppers, showbiz, car, dance rave, starpower, etc. My two beauty pageants are in there also. I won Ms American Scarlett and Ms. Tropicana. I will post pictures b/c they are funny...those were my only pageants and I won both...and I'm glad it stopped after that haha.

P.S. Please excuse the mess in the garage, we are working on it=)

The Temple

This is how my day went...
I woke up and did not feel good at all, I felt dizzy, hot, cold, my finger hurt, and I was coughing. I toughed it out and left work at 3:30. I then quickly got dressed and was able to go to the 5:30 session with Scott where my friend Dani was receiving her endowment. This would have been my third time doing endowments. I could honestly say that third time was the charm. I was so much more relaxed and could feel the spirit. It was such a wonderful session. I can't wait for the rest of my friends to get married now=) I'm glad I was the first so I can be waiting on the other side for everyone else, so exciting!! Anyway, it was an awesome day and I love the temple so much. I just feel so blessed and so happy, but now I must rest my head and go to sleep. I can't wait to attend my first marriage sealing of Dani and her fiance Brendon on Saturday.
