BUT "You Vandal" by Saves the Day came on my iPod just now, and none of that matters. This song can cure anything!
Have a fantastic day, all.

We had a FANTASTIC weekend! Most of our time was spent with Ramelle and Jayk.
We went out to eat at one of the best Mexican food restaurants in the valley, La Casa Blanca in Chandler on Friday. It was 'lish. Then we introduced Rams to The Waffle House on Saturday, because she had never partaken in the goodness that is Waffley Casa. Ramelle and Jayk got me Jake (Twilight) Sweethearts. How well do they know me? I drooled at the picture of him on the box for a long time. You can see Diella above admiring the box as well. I'm teaching her young ;)
Saturday night, we had a picture-taking extravaganza, as you can see above. I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend! <3
Also, as an update to my "no negativity" campaign, I am doing well. I'm combating bad feelings with good ones! Today's positive thought is that I have the best family in the world, and I am SO grateful for them.

I smell several Tucson road trips. Can't wait!!
Lately, I've noticed that I have gotten way too negative. I dislike that. I don't want to be a negative person! But I'm feeling empowered, because I KNOW that it's never too late to make a change. So, starting today, I'm going to combat negative feelings/thoughts with postive ones. I can do this!

My favorite thing about having a record player is the old-timey sound that exudes from the speakers, even though the records are not from another era. Listening to vinyl takes me back to simpler times, and I love it. I have been on the look out for a gramophone for as long as I can remember. But alas, they are few and far between and when you do find one, they are expensive! But I will never give up the search!!
Their chips and salsa are to. die. for! I skip the traditional salsa, and dive into the "hot" sauce in the squeezable container. So good and mildly spicy, it's perfect for my all the people who are sissy when it comes to hot sauce (like me). I usually get a black bean burrito, enchilada style with black beans and rice on the side. But you can't go wrong with their cheese enchiladas either!

In preparing for my visiting teaching lesson this month, I read the quote above. It hit me like a ton of bricks. I am so thankful for Temples and sealings. It brings me such comfort to know that my family and I will be together for eternity.
