Its been a wonderful week leading up to Mother’s Day and then Mother’s Day weekend…its been wonderful because I have spent it with a couple of my children!!
To start the week off right Hillary and Quentin came to visit on Thursday…we had such a fun fun time. Spent the weekend in Monterey at the aquarium, Q seemed very uncomfortable with most if not all of the sea creatures.
These things make me smile….
The smell of spring
A rainy day and a good book
A text that says, “I love you”
Monday morning emails from Andrew
Looking at my fabric
Turning on my sewing machine
Walking out of the gym
A bike ride along the ocean
Visits from my kids
Weekends with Don
Going to bed
Walking into a massage
Birds chirping outside my window
Holding my grand babies
Reading my scriptures
Walking into the temple
A movie that makes me cry
A book that I can’t put down
A yummy salad
Lunch with friends
An afternoon at the hair salon
A clean house
The sound of laundry in the machine
Spending time on FamilySearch.org
Our family text group
Oranges hanging from our tree
When all kids are happy…
I could go on and on! My favorite saying is “Look for the good in everyday”…as we do this a smile should be on all our faces!
side note…the backpack (Northface) was stolen and only the contents of the backpack were sent to Andrew.
Every one needs a best friend and when that best friend is your shopping buddy it’s an added bonus! We vacation together and every year attend BYU Education Week…it is a wonderful experience and one that I look forward to and cherish!
What’s really unbelievable is that we are sister in-laws and we share the same birthday. When people make comments and ask if we are sisters my response is, “sisters from different mothers”!! (of course I always say she’s older, but clearly you can tell that is not true). Cyndy will be in many of my post because she is one styling’ woman!!

I asked each of the kids to write about one of their memory gems…everyone of them made me cry!! I truly do love being a mom!!
