Girls Weekend

Last Friday I flew to visit my girls for the Relief Society General broadcast.  We had such a great time! Two of my sisters also joined us, with spectacular tickets. K wasn't able to join us until late friday, but we just carried on without her until she could join us.  We went to Bakers, I got some anise oil for deliscious caramels come Christmas time.  Had dinner, and went back to the hotel.  The next morning we found some great buys at the DI, checked out a farmers market, did some shopping, and then went to the broadcast.  Brooke was able to get us tickets from Elder Hales, her husband's uncle, and they were great! We were sitting right up at the front in what I will call "the apostles family section!"  We were as close as you could get to sit by Pres. Monson's wife and daughter, Sister Dibb, who were up on the stand.  As the prophet came in, he bent down and said to his wife and daughter, "How's my girls?"   So cool!  We shook the hand of Sister Dew, she was sitting on the same row, just down a few chairs.  We also recognized sisters Nelson, Eyring, Utchdorf, and Holland.  Some of the apostles escorted their wives to and from their seats.  And, the messages they gave were great as well.  For once, the time seemed to pass so quickly.  After the meeting, we had some dinner, and as a treat from Dad, the girls each bought a pair of boots that they really "needed."  Sunday we slept in, went to sacrament meeting in the Joseph Smith Memorial Building, had some really good sushi, and dispersed until next year when the girls want to do it again.  Such a great weekend!

Good Things:
1.  A girls getaway
2.  Feeling the spirit of leaders
3.  Plans for next year
