Baby it's cold outside ❄️

We have had seriously 5 days of snow, it's been crazy. Today was gorgeous and I loved every minute of the warm sun and blue skies that blessed my cold body.

Weekend Visitors

My sister and her family came to visit and tour the new Provo temple. It was SO much fun to have them stay w/ us. We had a nice time at the temple and enjoyed all the beautiful rooms. We visited museums on campus, ate at the Creamery, tried to get into the stadium (Ashton and Slater are big football fans), went ice skating and bowling. Stella was in heaven having her cousins around and we all miss them a ton.

Temple tour

Stella and I outside the Provo City Center Temple. It was SO wonderful to be in the temple w/ my family today. Stella was so excited to go and was quiet and reverent the whole time, which is pretty miraculous in and of itself. The temple is so lovely and there is so much light inside, both spiritual and physical.

Provo City Center Temple

So yesterday we walked to the first temple in Provo and tonight we drove past the 2nd temple, which is now open for tours. It's such a beautiful building from the outside I can't wait to see the inside when we take Stella on a tour this week. #familiesareforever

29 years ago today...

Stella and I celebrated the anniversary of my baptism by walking to the temple today. It was a glorious day, with bright blue skies, a big warm winter sun and those gorgeous mountains as a backdrop. It really was so good for my soul to be out. As for my feelings about my baptism, deciding to be baptized is hands down the best decision I've ever made. My membership in this church has brought me so much happiness, peace, knowledge & love (jorge). The Savior is my friend and my rock in a ever shifting world.

Makeup madness πŸ’‹πŸ’„

It's been awhile but I'm back!!! So I've been trying to exercise more. You just feel so good when you get all those endorphins going. If I don't get up on time before Jorge leaves then Stella and I go and walk the mall in the morning before the stores open. It's warm and dry versus the freezing cold snow/ice filled sidewalks outside. Anyways we stopped and looked at makeup last week on our way out and she loved every minute of it. She was grabbing everything and trying to put it on. There's no end to her curiosity and there's no doubt she's a girly girl. The lady who worked there could see Stellas interest and offered to put on a lipgloss of her choice. She was pumped! Good thing it will be awhile before we will let her actually wear makeup, I have some time to save πŸ˜….

I love these gorgeous trees this time of year. The leaves are all slowly turning to a gold yellow and it creates this magical feel both as you look up and as they crunch under your feet. You can barely see Stella, she has on pInk pants. We raced from the mailboxes to our apt. She loves to win. She always tell me to wait walking up the stairs or down to the car because she wants to win. She is getting so much bigger and more mature everyday.
