Meeting a New Friend!

Yesterday I got to meet Kristi from I Should Be Mopping the Floor!   I do a guest post once a month for her blog, so I felt like I knew her already!  If you have never visited her site you are missing out, she has some great ideas and beautiful pictures!  Take a minute and check it out!She is in Utah for a blogging conference close to my home, so we made arrangements to get together for a short time.

She was so sweet and I felt like she could be my sister (although she would be a younger sister!).  She has helped me a great deal with my blog and is so willing to share her information on things that I can do to improve.  But she is also just a kind, fun, sweet person to be around and the time went by way too quick!

We were able to visit while we made a stop at Gygi’s, one of my favorite places to visit.  I got some lemon flavored chocolate that I want to try out really soon… think lemon dipped strawberries for Mother’s Day!  After that stop we went over to the Blue Lemon for lunch, another one of my favorite places to eat.  So I gave Kristi a very short tour of a couple of my favorite places in SLC.

I had a wonderful time and I am so glad that I got to meet her!  Thanks Kristi! :)

After I let her off to go back to her blogging conference, I made a little detour over to Trader Joe’s since I was so close, I could not pass up the opportunity to just go over there and browse and do a little shopping.  Of course, I bought some of their flowers, just because… and I brought them home and arranged them.

I love the bright yellows and purple is this fun arrangement!  I got the yellow mason jar at Steinmart and have just been waiting to put a fun floral arrangement in it!  It is amazing how happy a bunch of flowers for $5.99 can make this girl! :)

So I got to spend the day with a great friend, we had good food, did a little shopping and flowers to top it all off.  I would say that this was pretty much a perfect day!

I hope that you get to spend a perfect day with someone you love real soon!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Thanks for Visiting!  Love Ya!

Craft Retreat

We had a fun little craft retreat at our cabin this last weekend.  It was kind of fun because I had my sister bring a friend, and my friend  brought her sister and I brought another friend.  So we all had someone we knew and then we got to make new friends!  It was great.  Each group was supposed to bring a craft for everyone else to make.  We did not put any restrictions on what we would do, we just put a $10 limit on each project.  It was so much fun to see what everyone came up with.   I decided that since I was hosting that perhaps I should do two crafts, well guess what… so did every one else!  So instead of 3 projects, we made 6.  Oh what fun we had!

We crafted, ate, went shopping, ate some more, giggled, fed the deer, crafted some more,  stayed up late talking, ate again, fed the deer again and crafted some more, then went shopping again on the way home!

Here is my fun little group with one of our projects: How fun is this for Halloween?   (a tutorial is coming!)

Dog Kennel Quilt Show

I went to the Dog Kennel Quilt show this last weekend. Isn’t that quite the name!  apparently when they first started they met in an old dog kennel building!  My how times have changed. They were celebrating 20 years this year!  This is what greeted us as we pulled up to the house!  Is that amazing or what.  It is a small representation of some of their quilts over the last 20 years!

Girls’s Retreat

I went with two of my friends up to our cabin, for a couple of days and it was so fun to just relax and enjoy fun friendships, go shopping, crafting, and of course eating!  We got there in the evening and we each had brought a project to work on, but we were having too much fun just talking and laughing to do them!

But I found these fun little scrapbook kits at a garage sale last weekend, so I busted them out and we started working on them while we continued to visit.

Friendship Quote

I went to the BYU  Women’s conference yesterday and went to a couple of great classes, went shopping at the bookstore and found some great finds (as in chocolate covered cinnamon bears!)   and then the night of service which was amazing!  Pics will come later.

I just want to share a great quote about friendship that I got from one of the classes:I absolutely l love this!

The last two weeks have been very busy, but rewarding!  I feel like I have been thrown into a whirlwind and now I have been spit out!  So I hope to get some good R &R this weekend and I hope that you can do the same!

Thanks to everyone for your support this week I love you all!



Card Making Party!

Last week my husband was gone and so I decided to have a card making party while he was away!  My neighbor agreed to teach us some new techniques and tips and so we got some of the girls together for a fun little night out!  I was having so much fun that I really forgot to take very many pictures and the ones I have here have very poor lighting, so you will have to excuse the photographer on this post, but she was more interested in being with friends than the camera! :)

This is my cute little neighbor, who taught our class!
