the one with one of the best things i have ever done!

the chick-fil-a grand opening here in midland
was a BLAST!
i had such a great time!

will and i got there about 5:35 am
and by about 6:10 we had our raffle tickets
because if there are over 100 people there by 6 am
then they raffle off the 100 spots

i was pretty nervous by the time we were
half way through the raffle.
the guy in front of me had been called,
and pretty quickly the guy behind me was called
will and i were finally called, #85

we were ushered inside
filled out paperwork
was given a super cute cup
and then ushered back outside
to get our parking spot/camping stall

this was our home for about 21 hours
since it took forever for us to get a spot

we had some pretty great neighbors

and some annoying neighbors,
who played music over the operator's father playing a trumpet
 and jammed out til about 2

we played games all afternoon and til about 10ish
i participated in a savenger hunt
via  columbus ledger enquirer

only downside i got pretty burned
like in pain for a couple days

we woke up the next morning, packed up
and got in numerical order
were handed t-shirts
[picture to come]
and went inside to be given our 52 free meal tickets

then will and i went inside for some breakfast
making us one of the first five paying customers
if you want to see what happened next

in a couple days
will, zac and i
are going to another opening
in tucker, GA if you wanna come!

the one with the evans

the evans are like my second family
they are my favorite
their kids are super cute
and they love me

can it get any better?
yes, yes it can!
they say the cutest stuff

the kids
e 14 year old girl
j 10 year old boy
b  year old boy
m 4 year old boy

j, while playing with my phone,
said "you have the ellen app?
to which i replied "yes, i love ellen!"
b then blurted out "i love ellen too!"

b is just so cute and always loves what you think
a stay-at-home mom would love

j, while i was checking out the johnson's blog,
said the cutest thing but you'll need some background
the johnson's are currently living in germany they had picture up
so j said "do they have mormon church there?"
and i said "yeah..."
"wow, they just drink a lot and i didn't think they would have one"
ummm, i love these kids.
more to come i'm with them for like another 18 hours

the one with late nights

i love getting together
with the hyde side of the family
because we stay up and talk or play games
and when i end up going to bed early
and they stay up i get jealous

well when it's just me and mom
it's a perfect recipe for staying up late
and tons of tv
and tons of stupid fun stuff

like for instance tonight was
reading, hawaii five-0,
fabulous cakes, quints by surprise,
oh and blogging and more reading
and make it or break it

we had ice water galore,
rice krispies, and fires and tater tots

and my mom and i discussed a hilarious book
[can you keep a secret? by sophie kinsella]
and the fact that i love the name lyla and she doesn't
(doesn't lyla marie sound cute? i wouldn't use marie though)
and if i have twins i want them to be lyla and piper

and i talked to my favorite person
and caught up on tweets
tonight was a good night!

the one when i ask: "can i get a [hallelujah]?"

after almost 9 years
our military has done it
they have taken out osama bin laden

i never thought this day would come
and where was he?
in a compound in pakistan

i remember feeling chills when i saw this picture
after september 11

then this morning i was blown away
when i saw this picture this morning

we owe them and our military

the one with 'adlanna' temple festivites

real southerners don't say atlanta
they say adlanna

now on to the fun stuff

mom, dad, and zac worked at the open house
and i got to watch this cute little girl
she was adorable
and she said we're best friends

then we dropped off miss lauren to her parents
and went and toured the temple
before a temple is dedicated you can tour the inside
i toured the mt. timpanogos temple
but it was amazing to tour as a family
sans nathan, but he was there in spirit

dad had taken the boys aside
i took this picture after
but the colors turned out so cool

this is how it was before the mt. timpanogos temple
and because of the sealing power of the temple
we were sealed to my brothers for
time and all eternity

the atlanta temple was closed for almost two years
because the condition was worse than they first thought
now they have made grand improvements
like they have a thing in the back of the temple
that holds water so all outside water needs are taken care of
and use no city water
and water is such an issue here so this is amazing!

so that was last weekend
this weekend was amazing

these are some views from our hotel room
it was so beautiful!

this was at something like 6 in the morning
sleeping on the floor did not agree with me!

while we were waiting in line to get in
we were lucky enough to see our stake kids
and they looked like cadged animals

this is the one of the chaperones
the picture turned out really nice

the girls had just finished practicing

the color turned out really cool with this one too
i like the coloring with ian's sunglasses

of course dan and will were on the front row on stage
dan's the one on the left

our kids from the ward

 of course they got in the hsm jump

some of the boys wanted to get in on the action too

due to copyrights and all
no pictures or videoing was allowed
will got really close to president monson who was there
for the cultural celebration
it was amazing
