way over due...

last week was really crazy and to be honest... this week wasn't all that much better! don't ya just love the summer!

i had the opportunity to go with 2 of the girls from my class at church to a retreat last week! it was at camp lomia in sardine canyon! so fun! this retreat was for all of the girls ages 16-18. we made cute little journals, played games and talked about our Savior! it was amazing! melissa and allie are darling and we had so much fun!

the retreat started on tuesday morning and they came home thursday morning. i went up as soon as i got off work both days! man, i love those girls!

then... friday was my friends, julie, birthday. ann, julie and i went to the rodeo friday night in logan! it was fun! ann is not a rodeo, dirt, horse or crowd person and wasn't all that excited to go. we sat in the second row and she asked us if it was safe to sit there.... "oh ya... the horses don't really come that close" we told her.

well... the first horse out of the gate came straight at us! lol! it was so funny! we all laughed so hard!

the next morning the 3 of us headed to bear lake for the weekend. we stayed in a cabin near pickleville playhouse. what a wonderful trip! we ate lots of junk, played games, watched movies, went to pickleville, stayed up late and relaxed at the beach!

thanks julie, for having a birthday! we all had a great time!

i hope all of you are doing well! i am heading out of town for the weekend again ... this time to visit my brother and then to see a play with my momma!

manti, utah...

last night our youth group went to manti, utah for the Mormon Miracle Pageant. it was AMAZING! i have been to this pageant more times than i can count and i enjoy it every time!

we had a great trip! the girls were great! the boys were awesome! they set up and took down our tents, provided dinner and breakfast, and were lots of fun! this was an activity that i am sure they will always remember!

this little clip shows several parts of the pageant! enjoy!

oh... the memories... long car rides... finding the perfect spot... escape for some ice cream... silly games in the grass... wonderful pageant... not enough blankets... up all night... tents zip tied shut by the boys... tent poles taken out... turkey for breakfast...

i would do it all again! ...maybe...

the "to do" list...

my cute friend dawn posted about her "to do" list and i was inspired to post about mine!

i will be honest here... i love "to do" lists! matter of fact if i do something that wasn't on "the list" i will usually add it to the list just so i can cross it off!

i have been very productive this week and i am proud of myself... doesn't usually happen to me...

here is a version of the "to do" list that i had this weekend:
~ clean basement
*get rid of boxes
*organize guest room
*wash guest bedding
*start putting yard sale stuff together
*sweep and mop basement
*organize kevin's work clothes
*go through random piles of "stuff"
~ take out trash and recycling
~ vacuum entire upstairs
~ clean off scrapbook table (i haven't seen the actual table in months!)
~ straighten living room
~ put laundry away
~ put dishes away
~ compile new music for blog

well, that is most of what i did the last 2 days! the girls at work were giving me a hard time because they didn't think i would get my basement done, let alone anything else! ha! i did it! and it feels great!

i love getting projects done! it makes me feel so good! if i could only do them all of the time! lol!
