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.

We fit in a photo shoot before TOFW started.

Here we all are with our note books that my sister Dacia made for each of us ... she ROCKS!

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!

Thanks Lex for sending your wife! It was a beautful moment in life and I agree with Dacia, it has inspired me everyday too. Also, Erika(and Lex) you guys are great examples of being close to the spirit. You guys fully embrace your callings in life and help others to do so. You guys are a great source of strength and example to our family and all those around you. Love you guys! Can't wait to see you guys again!
