Life has been good. Conference always gives me a boost in the right direction spiritually. I found myself listening and thanking my Father in heaven for the words that I needed to hear.

A lot was said on faith and that is EXACTLY what I've been needing to work on lately, my faith.

This quote by James E. Faust is a good one and I need to print this out and hang it on my bathroom mirror. “Hope is the anchor of our souls. I know of no one who is not in need of hope--young or old, strong or weak, rich or poor... Everybody in this life has challenges and difficulties. That is part of our mortal test. The reason for some of these trials cannot be readily understood except on the basis of faith and hope because there is often a larger purpose which we do not always understand. Peace comes through hope.” I hope that you all enjoyed conference as much as I did.

As for the projects, we were able to get quite a few things done this past week. First, we were able to get away for the afternoon and snap a few quick shots.

Here is Beck giving us his "Good" smile...

And here he is cheesin' it...

then here is the fam (minus Nora, it wasn’t the best weather and I didn’t want her bear dirty)....

So this next one is a proud moment. So my friend who is oober talented has made so many things in her home. One of the things she has done is make a skinny shelf. I had to steal the idea and make one for our messy office. We're slowly re-doing it.

Next, this one is for Nora. I was really excited to get pink in the house in honor of her. This is just a rose wreath that I made out of crepe paper. It’s super cute for spring.

I love ceiling fans, not how they make the room look, but how they make you feel, especially at night in mid july. I've never had one in my room until we stayed with Justin's parents and I immediatly fell in love. I'll let you know if I save any money this summer. We got these for a steal too. They were on sale at Lowes for 16.99 regularly 65.99. Woot!

Last but surley not least... our plants for the garden. I went to an activity this year and we planted seeds in cups. I thought that I'd be lucky to get 1 or 2 plants but all of them have came up. I'm excited about how much money we're going to save too. We usually spend a good 40-50 on plants and we only spent 10 this year on everything and we have enough seeds to last us the next 4 years! SWEET!

Oh, I LOVED Conference too....and especially that quote! One of my favorites.

And have been BUSY and PRODUCTIVE. I am jealous....maybe some of that energy and motivation will rub off on me. :) Everything looks awesome. Good job!!
