weekend review

This past weekend was just what I needed! We have been having some pretty good spring weather (except today it's high winds and SNOW for the forecast... boooo!) which put us in the mood for some grilled food. So we got together with friends and had quite the feast Friday night! I can't wait until it warms up (and stays warm) for the season! I want to spend as much time outside with my little family as possible!
We traveled to my in laws and spent Saturday and Sunday with family! It was so great to spend time relaxing and playing with everyone! I know Mia was thoroughly entertained the whole time :) Poor baby, she is going to be so sad when she wakes up and realizes she has to spend the day with boring ol' mom again. I must admit that the best part of the weekend was listening to General Conference. I have been dwelling on my personal struggles lately and I've been yearning to learn how to make them better. Make them my strength instead of a struggle... and conference was an answer to my prayers! I learned so much and I am incredibly grateful for the leaders of the church and the guidance they provide. But I am even more grateful for a loving Heavenly Father who provides us with the counsel we so greatly need!
I am quite the slacker and didn't keep a camera of my phone (shocker!!) close by for most of the weekend. So I leave you with the only picture I took.... but hey! At least it's a cute one :)

Conference was SO good! I loved Elder Holland's talk and the way he presented it. It's so wonderful to see these men of God be deliver so forcefully and powerfully their message of hope and love. Their convictions are such an example.
