Two years of YES: Celebrating our Love

On Saturday John and I celebrated two wonderful years of marriage.  Two years of growth, love and happiness. I am blessed to have the kind of man I have by my side. And everyday that goes by, more and more, I realize that I made the best decision of my life. Being married to John has been even better than I could have imagined.  This year we went to Zion National Park to celebrate.

I just got these new pumps! I've been wanting these shoes forever but they were too expensive. On Friday I got them for 75% off. I love sales. You know I'm wearing them tomorrow.

Cake Decorating Fail

My first cake was a  I don't know what I did wrong but the consistency of the icing wasn't right. Maybe on Monday I'll have better luck.

Summer To Do List

I don't know about you but I feel like I always have a lot on my to-do list. So much that there are days I don't know how I don't literally lose my head.  This year I've decided to make what I call MY SUMMER FUN TO DO LIST. This list is all about fun and giggles. Here's what I'm thinking:

  • go camping
  • do a couple of small hikes
  • have saturday picnics
  • fly a kite
  • go to the zoo
  • play in the rain
  • finish Isla's memory book 
  • make a quiet book
  • make a summer dress
  • decorate a cake like a pro..I probably won't be able to that but maybe I can get good enough so that I can make Isla's birthday cake
  • finish 3 books 
  • start working out regularly
  • go swimming
  • run a 5k
So what do you think?  Any suggestion of things we need to do? Maybe hikes, parks, activities that are fun that I didn't think about? Let me know. For now here's my to-do list for today:

  • clean the house
  • do some laudry
  • read Isla a book
  • play like a kid
  • find something to cook
  • go to the mall
  • go to Michaels and buy stuff for my cake decorating class
  • wash my hair
  • do some personal reading

    Women of Light

    On this Mother's Day I couldn't help to think of some of the women in my life that I admire so much. They are women of God. And they have taught me so much about love, charity and sacrifice. I feel so blessed to have them as examples in my life. 

    President Hinckley says it beautifully in this Mormon Message:

    So on this day, "may your spirit be touched with a lightness that comes from knowing what an important place you have in this world. And may your life be blessed with happiness as you have blessed so many others with your love."

    Happy Mother's Day!
