Time Out For Us!!





On Friday November 2, we drove to Long Beach, California for Time Out for Women! It was Me, my sisters Janna who drover from Arizona, Alyssa who flew in from Texas, Emily who drove with me from Vegas, my sister-in-law Ashley who lives in Long Beach,and my Mom who also lives in Vegas. My brother Jack and my Dad came but they hung out and went golfing while us girls enjoyed a girls day. For those of you that don't know what it is, Time Out For Women is something that Deseret Book puts on all over the country, they bring musical artists and great speakers together for a day or two of spiritual uplifting for Women. This was my second one I had been to, the first was here in Vegas a year ago. This one in Long Beach was being hosted by our cousin Hilary Weeks, she was great and it was so fun to spend some time with her. The other amazing people there were Jenny Jordan Frogley (LDS musical artist), Ardeth Kapp (former General Young Womens President), Abe Mills (from the LDS group Jericho Road), S. Michael Wilcox (an instructor at the institute by University of Utah) and John Hilton III (an author and frequent speaker at Education week). They were all wonderful and I enjoyed it so much! It was amazing to be with my sisters for a few days without our kids, I honestly don't know when the last time all of us were together without children! In fact it may have been before any of us were married :). We drove home yesterday and now we are planning the next time for a get together! Oh wait and I can't leave out one of my favorite parts of the weekend, on Sat. evening we went and got dinner and then we went and did a little shopping and my wonderful parents allowed us to pick out a new purse. Now to some of you this is no big deal, but for me, well I LOVE them, I have many and hope to have many more! :) So because of this I decided to post a picture of my newest Coach addition! Oh and don't worry I have shoes to go with it!! :)

I too have a purse addiction! Nice score! That sounds like so much fun! I hadn't even heard of that. Me and my sisters should totally do that!
