Trip Down Memory Lane





My friend, Brittney, got married in the Salt Lake Temple on Saturday. We met while in the singles ward in Las Vegas, and she eventually moved to SLC, for a job offer and where there was a bigger population of LDS guys to choose from. It was raining, which then turned to snow on her wedding day, but she was such a good sport. We had so much fun together when she lived in Vegas. Of course this was all before marriage and kids. We had slumber parties and date nights and shopping excursions and parties with boys we were trying to get dates with...very fun times. It was such a beautiful sealing and nice to be at the temple, the visits there seem to be numbered after having babies.




I was also able to meet up with some very good friends from college. I can't believe its been 11 years since our freshman year at Utah State University in Logan UT. The three of us went on our missions to Japan, different missions within the country, but we were all in the MTC together. It was so cool to write each other and hear about our similar, yet different experiences while serving the people of Japan. After our missions, we went back to USU, and had so many fun times going to the only dance club on Saturday nights for the country line dancing...SO FUN!
These two girls have given me so much strength through the years. Whenever we get together, its like we pick up just where we left off, even if its been a couple of years! I've always looked to them for help and they gave me such good, sound advice, mostly about boys! What would I do without such good girlfriends in my life? I just thank my Father in Heaven for the wonderful friends, new and old, He has blessed me with, who guide and direct me in the way I should go. And not to mention my hubby, (who does read our blog), my best friend, who helps me everyday. Love ya babe! Thanks for such a fun trip.

Glad you had a good trip home. Nathan is a little better. I took him to the DR today cause I noticed all these sores in his mouth and he still had a fever in the night. He has two ear infections and a mouth full of canker sores. Poor kid. He was a trooper over the weekend and I'm so glad we still went. It was so fun to see Brit get hitched and I'm so happy for her.

Sounds like such fun! I love getting together with my friends from my single days. It's true that we bond together over so many things and that bond is still strong when we get together again. What a blessing! It sounds like you had a wonderful time!
