Sleepy Head

It was Jazzy's nap time and I couldn't find her anywhere. Thankfully I didn't have to look far. She was fast asleep in our office chair next to the computer.

Nicole's Bachelorette Party

A bunch of us got together to celebrate one of Nicole's last nights of being single. Aimee rented a karaoke room for Nicole's Bachelorette Party. We ate appetizers, drank soda, had fun with some props, played a game and sang for hours. It was a blast!

Thanks Aimee for a fun girls night out!


I got to go on another girls trip! I went to Boise, Idaho for Time Out For Women. I highly recommend going for a good spiritual high. The best part of the whole trip was being with my Olayan sisters and our niece.

We started out our weekend by going to the Boise Temple. It was one of the most spiritual experiences I have ever had. How grateful I am to be able to go to the House of the Lord and get answers to my prayers and direction for me and my family.

Friday night at the conference

Saturday on our Lunch break. We ate at my sister's restaurant, IOU Sushi . . . yummy yummy to my popping out tummy!

Here we are at the end of the conference. Our eyes might look a little red and puffy, well they are:)

This was one of the best getaways ever! We got to go to the temple, do a photo shoot, TOFW (cry), eat, stay up late, TOFW (cry), eat, TOFW (cry), sister bonding time (share testimonies, "I know", girl talk, cry, laugh, and cry some more), eat, enjoy some ice cream, and stay up late. I am so thankful for this opportunity that I had to draw nearer to my Savior and grow closer to my sisters. They inspire me to be better so one day we will be together FOREVER!

P.S. Thanks Lovey for allowing me to have this experience . . . I LOVE YOU!

San Francisco

My cousins, some friends, and I went on a GIRLS TRIP to San Francisco for a weekend. It was a much needed break and my first trip without the hubby or kids since I have been married. We had a blast doing what girls do best . . . shop, eat delicious food, and talk! It was a blast!

This is me exhausted from being pregnant and walking all day long.

All of our names (except one) were drawn for the WICKED lottery. We got our tickets for $25! It was a great way to start our weekend.

What would a girls weekend be without giving each other glitter pedicures
