I love this video! "Remember that you are spirit daughters of the most creative being in the universe. Isn't it remarkable to think that your very spirits are fashioned by an endlessly creative and eternally compassionate God." Dieter F. Uchtdorf

I hope you ENJOY!

Stephen and I have had such a fun Valentines weekend. Instead of celebrating on only Feb 14th... we celebrated Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday! :)
FRIDAY= Stephen took me to Rodizios steak house and surprise me with a trip to Cancun for 6 nights at the end of April. It is right after we finish our finals... what a FUN vacation to look forward too!!!
SATURDAY= Me and my good friend Theresa planned a nice dinner to cook for our husbands. We decided to decorate the apartment and cook homemade chicken cordon bleu, ceaser salad, and garlic bread. It turned out SOOO delicious and the boys were so surprised. We finished the night with tie dying shirts, subzero ice cream, and a movie.
SUNDAY= I woke up to beautiful red roses, a sweet note, and a nike sports kit that I have been wanting. I love running but I hate running on a treadmill. I love running outside but it drives me crazy not knowing how far I have run. So this kit Stephen bought plugs into my ipod and tells me my time, distance, pace, and calories burned while I run. Isn't that great? I loved it! Then after church me, Amanda, and Miriam piled the boys in the expedition and drove to Ogden for their BIG Valentines Surprise. We took them to a cabin and it was full of games, candy, and movies. It was a blast and they were so surprised.

I love red roses!

Stomach Flu... :(

Sunday morning I woke up around 8:00 to get ready for church and it hit me... my stomach was in knots and I felt like I was going to throw up. That is the worst feeling... and if anyone knows me they know the thing I hate most is throwing up. I crawled back in bed hoping that my stomach pain would go away, but sadly 30 minutes later I was throwing up. The whole day was full of laying in bed, sleeping, crying, getting chills and then getting hot again, and throwing up every hour. It was awful and I can't tell you how happy I am for it to be over. Luckily Stephen was there to take care of me... I am just praying he doesn't get sick!
I hope this flu season passes quick!!!
