Never Again.

I am on the Relief Society Activity committee at church,
for this month's activity we decided to do a holiday craft.

I found this idea and figured it was pretty simple, even I could manage to do
and teach it to other people.
To save time I volunteered for Benji and I to spray paint all of the bottles
before the activity.
We ended up spray painting 60 bottles.
Never again will be doing that one again.
We had spray paint all over us, all over the house.

One day we were craving pretzel bites.
You know the kind you from the mall.
Nothing was hitting the spot for us.

I found this recipe on Pinterest.
We super excited.

The cinnamon sugar ones with the vanilla glaze
Benji liked the best.
I liked the plain ones with sea salt the best.

Moving up...

Last weekend in our normal Saturday hoop-la
of running errands, we came across this...

I was super excited!
Benji even pulled over to get pictures.
I even called my Mom to tell her it was opening.
She and I used to go to Chick Fil-A all the time,
and I couldn't but share the exciting news with her.

Idaho Falls is slowly moving up in the world.
We WILL be there opening day.

Fall is here.

We turned our heater on today.
It will probably stay on until June.

I am so excited for the fall and the upcoming holidays.
We are excited to start developing our own family traditions.
And decorating our house.

My Mom always go all out when it comes to this time of year
and decorating.
I wish I had a picture of all of her decorations.
I hope to someday be decorate like she does.
It always made all the difference during the holidays.

We decided to do some rearranging Sunday.

Please ignore the wreath.
Its a work in progress.
And a pain to hang up. 

Here is what it looked like before.

over the weekend. and week.

Benji's mom and brother 
came into town to visit us this past week.
Last Saturday we spent the day in Jackson Hole
with them.
As we were wandering around we went into this store
that was closing and had everything 80% off. 
Benji found these red leather pants.
That of course he had to try on.

Then this past weekend we all went down to Utah
for General Conference and to see my sister and her family.
We hadn't seen my sister and her family since February.
I loved being with them.
I wish we had gotten to spend more time together. 

Our view from our seats in the Conference center.
