This is where we stayed Saturday night....awh-----in love!
We actually stayed here 7 years ago---in the SAME room..:)
It snowed all night-------how perfect!
We also had a very yummy stake dinner......oh la la!

This is what I got......have you SMELLED IT? holy moly!!!

We drove to preston Idaho and got lottery tickets....LOL!
and visited Pres. Ezra Taft Bensons grave in Whitney, Idaho.............--Hummmmm, something tells me these two don't fit!

I won a WHOLE DOLLER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We were driving back to logan from preston and I saw an amazing building...I made Mike stop!
I made him! I bribed him with every single thing I could think of...he HATED it----but did it anyways...:)

He is my hottie!

and finally------------------------------------------------------------------




A RING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SAD to say---but so very true.

I have never had one.......we never got wedding rings when we got married. We were to poor.

Mike, the stud he is, took on Me and the girls and a ring wasn't a priority....:)

I knew one day I would have one and it never bothered me!


SO NOW----I look like Im married!
I love it tho----its so vintage-y looking. Its so me!
Sad the weekend is over......:(
{Thanks keri and kristi for helping out with the KIDS....I didn't have to change a single diaper or make a bottel or seperate fighting children..., it was wonderful}
