Time Out for Couples

I have a lovely friend at work, Nikki, who came up to me and asked if I wanted to go to Time Out for Couples since she and her hubby couldn't go. I talked to Jake and we bought them off of her and went. We had never been to something like this. I had heard of Time Out for Women but had never been. It was AWESOME!!!!!! They had speakers and a musical performer. Wow!!

Some of the speakers were:

Richard and Kathleen Walker (she's the oldest daughter of President Gordon B. Hinckley) they were quite funny.

Doug Brinley who talked about marriage.

Peter Breinholt was the musical performer. He played his guitar and the piano. My favorite was his last song that went something like..."Grow old with me...." It was beautiful! favorite speaker was Mark Mabry. He's the photographer who put together "Reflections of Christ". Can you say waterworks? Oh my goodness...tear city. I recommend that everyone buy the DVD, except my family of course. Forget I said that!!!!

This is the picture he uses on the cover

And this is Mark Mabry, he's from Arizona too

Jetta turns 100,000

Our little baby Jetta turned 100,000 miles the other day and we actually got a picture of it's turning over. We love our car. It treats us well and it's a diesel too. We have 3 diesels and 1 gasser right now.

Cleaning Day

I had some of my neighbor girls come over, to give their mom a break, and help me clean my house. They did great. They vacuumed, scrubbed toilets, dusted, etc. We had fun doing it too! I also gave them $$ to spend on book orders. After we were done, I let them play with some "new" toys I received from my parents. They were cleaning out their patio and wanted to get rid of some "grandkid" toys, since all the grandkids live out of state. If they ever visit, I'll bring them back over. Anyway, some of them were toys from when I was a child. Barbies!!!!! I loved Barbies. I'm glad my mom still kept them. It brought back a lot of memories. I even remembered some of the outfits. While we were playing, Jake took a snooze. I don't know how with all the noise.
