Oquirrah Mt. Temple

While we were in Utah, we were able to go and see the Oquirrah Mt. Temple open house. The last time I had been to an open house was when I was young, and the experience left an impression on me. I was hoping for the same thing to happen with my children. Not sure if it did, but we enjoyed it anyway. :) (you never know with kids!)

"What? You're kidding!"

My title is said with sarcasm, because I'm going to let you in on a little secret. . . I love food!

"What? You're kidding!"

No, it's true. Anyone who knows me, knows this is one of my MOST favorite topics ever. I think about my next meal, while I'm presently eating. I love to muse over what combinations I'll be creating, and secretly hoping that my family will eat my new creation and exclaim how wonderful it is and how there is nothing else in the world like it. (the last part is probably more truth and the first.) So, it should come at no surprise, when I say that I am a food snob. :) Although, I will try most anything, I do not like to eat most anything. (i'm really bad when it comes to chocolate.) The same can be said for restuarants. My husband and I have this pact that we won't eat at any major food chain. (hey, i told you I was a snob.) We love to eat at the "best kept secrets", the "hole in the wall", and such. We feel there is more personality and quality in the food.

Well, my friends and I decided to try out a new place in Gilbert; Liberty Market. It's funny, because I remember it when it use to be a Market, a quickie Mart kind of place. But, now it's this gorgeous, quaint little cafe. The perfect place for friends to catch up. Their food was delicious and the staff was incredible. (I loved this man so much, we had to get a picture with him. I think he loves food just as much as me!!) Nothing on the menu is boring. You have to try it. Of course, I have to add this to my list of "must eats". Hope you love it.

By the way, check out the bathrooms. They are by far the coolest bathrooms ever. (each stall has it's own theme, and plays it's own music) Pretty cool!!

A full circle moment

I did a really crazy thing last month. I competed in a Masters Track Meet at MCC. Not sure what possessed me to compete in an event like the 3000 and the 4x400 relay (maybe it was the peer pressure), but I did it. It was so fun. I ended up taking the gold in my event (not hard when you are the only one running). We also place 1st in the women's 4x400 meter relay. (also, easy when you are the only team, but hey, who really cares?) I am just so grateful for my Lightning Bolts Racing Team, you guys ROCK!!

My baby turned 2!

Can't believe it! She's two years old. A beautiful baby that has brought a lot of laughter into our home. She is our toughest child, which means she will be our strongest. Love you baby!

I am reading this book right now. This man is INCREDIBLE! He ran 50 marathons, in 50 days, in 50 states. Crazy right? I think it's pretty cool!

Our Garden

I've always wanted to have a garden. You know the kind that you can actually eat from. We decided to clear a landscaped portion of our backyard and plant some fruit and veggies there. I studied and planned and PRAYED for the choices I had made. Brandon and I both wanted this to be a family affair, so, everyone got to help out. Here's hoping that all our efforts aren't in vain.

We are all getting our hands dirty. I LOVE Parker's face (above). Obviously, not everyone catching the vision.
