This past weekend I was able to go to Denver
to spend sometime with Benji and his family.

We had so much fun together,
like we always do.
And it was good to be back with Benji again,
even if it was just for a short amount of time.

Lessons learned and experiences
from the weekend
consisted of:

1. Never go to the DAV again with Larina, Grandma Richards, and
If I ever go again it will be with just Molly.

Benji grew up shopping at thrift stores.
The DAV, particularly.
I have heard a many stories about him being there while he was growing up
and I wanted to see what it was like.
So, I convinced us all to go.

End Result: We were there way to long. We found too much random stuff.
Benji tried to convince me we needed this fine china he found there
instead of the ones we registered for. I didn't buy his convincing.

2. If girl gives advice on another girl, especially in the dating area. Listen and heed.

3. Trying to get a raincheck at Target for a dresser that was on sale, when they weren't sold out.
And the manager caught us.
We weren't really sure what to say.

4. You can be warm being on the tramp with a million blankets
even though its freezing.

5. I got Benji's ring awhile ago through someone Benji knew in Idaho Falls.
Since, I wasn't up there after it was ready he just went
and picked it up,
but I made him promise not to look at it until we were together.
So, we finally were able to look at it together.

6. I finally got to meet Cassidy!
Cassidy got home from his mission in Italy on Black Friday,
so this was the first time we were able to meet.
It was fun to be able to spend some time with him
and get to know him.

7. Saturday, Larina and Molly graciously threw a bridal shower
for me!
We had a lot of fun while everyone was together.

(Notice his ring on his left hand. He wore it pretty much all weekend long.)

I think this is becoming one of my favorite pictures of us.
22 days!

The Target comment made me laugh! Did they end up giving you the rain check?
