The Month of November!

I always say that I am going to be better about this whole blogging thing, but it never happens. Life has been pretty crazy with work and school (which I still LOVE!!) and when I do have time I don't think about writing on here, but I have a few minutes and I am actually thinking about it so I thought I would take advantage of it.

I haven't blogged about anything since the end of October, so I will start there:

On November 5th, I had an amazing day, This day will forever be a special day for me. The reason why this will forever be a special day for me is because that is the day I received my endowments at the Salt Lake Temple! It was a day I have been working towards for a very long time and it is kind of hard to believe that it has come and gone already. I am so grateful for the love and support I have received as I made this decision to go to the temple. It was an amazing day! I am glad that I made the decision to go. It wasn't an easy one, because of the fact that Shaun wasn't going to be able to be there, but I do know that it was the right decision for our family.

I love being able to go to the temple and do other things besides baptisms for the dead. There is so much to be learned there and I am excited to have many trips to the temple ahead of me.

The following weekend I was able to have a girls weekend getaway with Christie and Brook (and Christie's family). We headed to St. George for Time Out for Women (TOFW). This is the fourth time I have been able to go to a TOFW event and it was just as good as the previous ones. We were able to do a session in the St. George temple while we were down there and just have lots of fun hanging out. I honestly can wait for the next TOFW event!

For Thanksgiving this year we had dinner with my Mom's side of the family. We had dinner at my Grandma's house (which was kind of weird...) and it was really tasty. After we were done there we headed over to Shaun's Aunt Cindee and Uncle Paul's house to visit with everyone that was there. All in all it was a fun day.

We didn't do any early morning Black Friday shopping. I remember growing up I used to LOVE going, but not anymore. I enjoyed sleeping in and just enjoying my time with Shaun and Zoey.

Here are a few pictures from November:
