Fun Saturday

Today we participated in a community yard sale just a few minutes from our house. Sam's parents brought in a whole van full of stuff. It was really fun and they did pretty well considering that they only had small items to sell. I didn't get any pictures of the event but I'm really proud of the progress they are making with getting rid of the excess things that they have.

And, as my mothers daughter, I did a little bit of yard sale-ing while at the blessed event. I spent a whopping $1.25 and ended up with a wall-hanging for my kitchen that matches the decor, 2 very lightly used jeans(Express and Lucky Brand), a t-shirt, and a pair of adorable flip flops! When I got home, I was thrilled that both pairs of jeans fit perfectly! WOOT WOOT!
Here's a picture of my old Lucky's that I can finally retire and not feel bad about spending too much on a new pair.

Sam and I also took the kids to the Oquirrh Mountain Temple Open House that is going on through the rest of this month. I'm the doofus who forgot the camera so I don't have any pictures but it is SO beautiful. I've been inside a number of temples and this one is truly magnificent. If you have the chance to go, GO! And if you don't have the time, you should try and clear something less important out of your schedule to GO! You can go to to reserve your tour tickets.

If you ever do a yard sale again I would be SO interested. I have a ton of stuff I need to switch out. I love love your new hair cut. You pull it off really well. Thanks for always being so sweet!
