Last weekend Jace and I had the opportunity to take a trip down to Manti for an overnight getaway.  We stayed at the Manti House Inn, a darling, antique-ish bed & breakfast. We decided to make the most of our time while there, so we ventured over to the temple grounds to watch the Mormon Miracle Pageant.  And the next morning, before heading back north, we did an endowment session at the temple. It was a short, but wonderful little trip!

1. I am incredibly grateful for the blessings of the temple
2. I am grateful for Coconut Lime Verbena body wash
3. I am grateful for 'Plackers Mint Flossers'
4. I am grateful for my pillow (it is seriously THE BEST)
5. I am grateful that I get to see Carrie Underwood in 5 days!

The Happiest Place On Earth, Really.

It felt like I was married to a 5 year old.  And for once, I didn't mind :) All he kept saying was, "This really is the happiest place on earth!" We had so much fun on our recent trip to California and Disneyland... and being there with my ENTIRE family for a whole week, made it that much more worth it! At the end of the week, Jace and I were able to visit his mission in Southern California. He showed me a few of his areas, and introduced me to some of his favorite families.  Here are some pictures of our fun times...
