The Wonderful City of Cedar!

This weekend was a weekend I'll always cherish. Sounds cheesy yes, but I will. Sam and I went down to Cedar for the weekend. It was homecoming at SUU, and it was so much fun! My friends and I had planned to join up in Cedar for Homecoming for months. It came slowly as I was waiting in anticipation, and then of course it went by way to fast.

We did some super fun things. Friday night we had an old 11th Ward reunion. I loved this ward so much and I loved the bishopric. Bishop and Sister Adams came to our wedding, and it met a lot to me that they would come. The reunion was at there house and it was so much fun seeing them again as well as all the other ward members. It was so nice having Sam there as my husband. The last time I was at the Bishops home, Sam lived in Salt Lake. I loved showing him around. I loved him being there. That night, after we left the bishops, I became a true T-Bird! I wanted to do it for so long, and even though I'm not going there anymore, I still consider myself one! This is us standing near Old Sorrel after we became true T-Birds. I can now check that off my "dreams I have" list and move onto the next one.

Saturday was an early morning. I threw my best friend Mel a surprise bridal shower! It was a lot of fun. Her and my other friends did wonders for me when I was engaged, she deserved it. I wish I could do so much more for her, but alas, she lives in Vegas and I live in Salt Lake. LDR's are tough. After that, we went to the Cedar City parade. It was so much fun! After the parade, we went to the football game!! We won by a long shot! Ya ya!
This is the gang at the pre-game fest. Wendy's is always a delicious treat.
Us at the game! Go T-Birds! Woot Woot!
After the game we just hung out, then went to the Pizza Factory for dinner. It was one of the best weekends ever. I really needed this vacation, and it was wonderful to see all my friends. Cedar is such a special place for me. Its where i found myself again after Sam left on his mission. For the first time in years, I had best friends, and they will always be that to me. I love them all!

This weekend was another fun one. Friday night Sam and I finally made it back to Lagoon for Frightmares. We got season passes this year, so we went to Lagoon quite a bit, and almost got sick of it, so we didn't go for a while, but Friday we went back. We both decided we like Lagoon better when its for Frightmares. The lines are shorter, its a lot cooler, and there are fun spooks everywhere, not to mention some Haunted Houses. Of course, it being October there aren't any water rides, but guess who managed to get wet any way? We did! We were heading across the park on the Sky Ride going towards the Jet Star. There was a fountain that was squirting up water, and it was squirting really, really high. Well it went off right before we went over it and I thought to myself, "that is high enough to get us." Since it went off right before we got there though, I thought it would miss us when lo and behold, the water came right up and got our seat! It just had to happen to us.

Sam got the brunt of the water sprayed on him, as you can see by these pictures.
I didn't get too wet, thank goodness!! But my poor husband!! Where the water hit him, it looks like he wet himself.

After a Haunted House we went in, we were standing in line for the scrambler. There were two little boys in front of us, probably about 8 or 9. Sam asked them if they had been in the haunted house. The conversation went something like this.

Sam: "Have you been to the Haunted House yet?"
Boys: "no"
Sam: "Its really scary, you would pee your pants"
Boys: "No we wouldn't"
Sam: "Yes you would its scary"
Boys: "Did you pee your pants"
Sam: "no"
Boys: "Yes you did! Your pants are wet!"

Ha ha! They totally got him! It was so funny!! I guess you had to be there, but it was seriously so so funny!! I laughed about it the rest of the night. It was a great night! We had a lot of fun together. I was kind of sad when I left becasue we have had so many fun times at that place our first married Summer together, and this was most likely the last time we could make it. We made good memories with Lagoon. It will always be a special place for me now.

I was so surprised and Happy. They are beautiful and very festive. I am so in love with Sam! I love him more and more everyday, and its not just because he gave me beautiful flowers, its so much more then that. Thanks honey! They are beautiful!

Conference weekend with the BFFFF8

This weekend was wonderful!! I loved listening to General Conference, and I loved attending the last session with Sam and my newly engaged friends, Justin and Mel! I really wish i could have seen them more. They came up from Vegas for conference. Mel had no idea that Justin was planning on proposing, but he did Saturday. She was so happy and I kept glancing over at her to see her checking out her new ring during conference. I remember doing that. I still study my ring because i just think its so beautiful! I am so happy for them, the future Justin and Mel Harrison!! Hopefully they get a blog soon.

Conference was so uplifting. I'm excited for the Ensign to come
out and read some of them over again. I especially loved Elder Bednar and Elder Uchtdorf's talks during the Saturday morning session and Elder Hollands powerful talk today. I am so grateful I had the oppertunity to listen to conference. I am also grateful for my wonderful husband. He is the best thing that has ever happened to me. Sometimes I think I am very hard to live with, but he puts up with me and loves me back. I still can't believe I got such a wonderful man to fall in love with me and marry me. He is so important to me, and I know he knows this, but I love him very much, and I feel like I can never tell him enough. I am so glad he is mine for eternity!!
