Scrumptious Cake Pops!

I had such a blast this morning having some fun girl time with 2 of my good friends and experimenting with cake pops! They turned out so cute and are so fun to make. I felt my creative side coming out as I was thinking of how to decorate them and cute ways to display them. These would make adorable decorations for a shower, birthday party or spring picnic! To check out one of my favorite blogs where more cake pop ideas can be found go to:

Simple Kindness

I just have to some of my good friends brought me some beautiful daffodils and a card---just because. It made my whole day and got me to I do simple acts of kindness for others as much as I should? The glowing feeling I had after they left is still with me and I hope that I can provide that for others and be more sensitive to their needs instead of being wrapped up in my own world. I am so grateful for good friends who buoy me up and make me happy in so many ways. Today was brightened for me by simple kindness.

Jules & Mom

Last week Steve & I flew to Cali for my little sister's wedding. It was so wonderful to be there with my whole family. It was the first time all 5 of us kids were all together in over 3 1/2 years. Needless to say, we had LOT of fun together! I loved being able to spend the night with my sister the night before her wedding and wake up and help her curl her hair for her big day. I loved being in the bride's room of the San Diego Temple with Julie and my mom helping Jules get her wedding dress on. It was such a special time to me and I'm so happy I could be there. She was one of the most beautiful brides I have ever seen! Now the new Mrs. Nelson and her hubby are happily on their honeymoon in Jamaica...mon! I can't wait to see pictures when they get home!

Being able to be with my whole family and especially all of my siblings again reminded me how lucky I am to have the family I do. We all have so much fun together---it is seriously ALWAYS a good time when we get together and I love it! I am looking forward to living closer to all of them so that we can hang out more often and have more good times! Love you guys!
