Weekend Wrap-up

The weekend is over *sigh* and a new week has begun.

Here's a look back at some of what happened around here.

* Dinner Group. We hosted our first ward dinner group this weekend. Lots of laughs and interesting conversation over yummy soups, salad, rolls and dessert. Glad our turn hosting is over though. :)

*Car shopping. Nicole needs a car. Let me rephrase that. I need Nicole to have a car. So we went out car shopping this weekend and found one that she really likes. But now Erik is having second thoughts thinking that maybe he should just get himself a new vehicle and give his car to Nicole. This might seem like logical thinking, but it's where we started several months ago. After many, many months of looking, Erik couldn't decide on what vehicle he wanted, so it was decided that it would be easier to buy a more inexpensive car for Nicole instead. We'll just call this the gray cloud that hung over the weekend. :)

*Lots of sunshine. Even with the gray cloud, there was still lots of sunshine and warmth. Spring Fever has hit hard around here. I have a little one who wants to wear shorts, sandals and short sleeve shirts every day. Tomorrows temps will only be in the upper 40's though. Ahhh. Spring in Utah.

*Nicole's talk. She was the youth speaker in sacrament meeting on Sunday and did a really great job! She doesn't get nervous at all. How would that be? She received many nice compliments and was even asked for a copy of her talk- nice job girlie!

*Time spent thinking about girls camp. I'm the Young Women's camp director this year and never having been in charge of anything like this before I will admit it is freaking me out just a bit. It's on my mind quite a bit. I'm trying to figure out where to start- and once I've done that, I'm sure things will be just fine. :)

*Hamburger Helper. *Gag* A week or so ago, I went grocery shopping with Erik. He saw a package of HH and said, "That looks kind of good." (In his defense, he was hungry at the time.) As for me, I'm always looking for easy dinners, so I grabbed the box and fixed it up for dinner. Let me just say that I have learned that Sunday dinner should not come from a box. Especially not one with a chubby glove smiling at you. Nasty!

*Priesthood Preview. I can't believe Isaac is 11 months away from receiving the priesthood. We attended our ward's PP night last night and they did a great job getting the boys excited for this next stage in their lives. Perhaps a little too excited. Isaac and his buddies were bouncing off the walls by the end of the evening. Maybe it had something to do with the brownies and ice cream.

*Chocolate chip cookies. The weekend ended with a batch of ew-ie, gooey cookies (feel free to use my descriptions for the catalog Tiff!). Nothing says farewell to a great weekend better than chocolate chip cookies and ice cold milk. Am I right?

And that about wraps it up. So, how was your weekend?


  1. Sunshine=good
    Car shopping=bad
    Girls Camp=Wow!
    Cookie descriptions=brilliant

  2. Sounds like a great weekend, and I love the picture of your flowers!

  3. I laughed about the chubby smiling glove on the hamburger helper! So funny.

    I've never been asked for a copy of my talk before. Wow, there couldn't possibly a better compliment than that. Way to go Nicole!

  4. Ooooh! Sounds like a great weekend! Gotta love the cookies!

    Good luck on the girl's camp director calling. I had to plan girl's camp my first year by myself of being put in YWs. I feel for you! Just don't forget all the utensils. :)
