Memorial Day Weekend!

I had such a nice loooooong weekend with my little family!
{So this will be a looooong post} :)

We didn't go on a trip anywhere, or do anything specifically PHENOMENAL, 
but that was just fine by me.
Seriously, just spending time with my hubby and my baby was just what I needed wanted. 

Ty took the day off work (which is a HUGE DEAL if you know my hub at all), and we went to the aquarium with D. I loved watching him look at all the fish and pointing at the penguins. Now Ty thinks we need an aquarium in our house. NOPE. Not gonna happen.

The rest of the day we just hung out and did nothing....awwwwww....nothing. Sometimes it's good for the soul. Oh, he DID make me watch "Chronicle." What a weird movie. 

Saturday was all about The Salt Lake Shine Event! Prepping, going to, and participating in the event. 
It was quite the crazy/fun event!!
I got to meet/hang out with some BEAUTIFULLY AMAZING people. 
Including Ashley, Brittany, Jamie, Elise, Megan and Jessi

We ran around downtown SLC "Spreading the Shine" the POURING/MONSOON-ISH rain none-the-less (very ironic, no?). I got to ride around with Brittany, and oh man was it fun! That girl is my new favorite person. She cracks me up! 
We gave some cookies/$1  to some homeless peeps, 
and the looks on  their faces (and ours) were priceless! 

Left some messages on the sidewalk & in the bathroom 
at Gateway for people to hopefully brighten their day. 

Wrote a note to a security guard and held the umbrella for him in the rain. 

And lots more! It really was true what Ashley said:
You don't have to do a HUGE thing to make a difference...
 LITTLE things can make a difference too.

Saturday Night I went to dinner with Ashley, her sister, Brittany & some friends to Happy Sumo for sushi! YUM! Those girls are HILARIOUS. Then met up with my sisters & their hubbies/boyfriends, played some arcade games, and went to see "What To Expect When You're Expecting" (at 10:00 no less--waaaay past my bedtime). 
It was pretty made me remember giving birth which I REALLY didn't want to relive. :) 
We just lounged around, did some yardwork, made some more jewelry, hung outside in the beautiful weather, went on a picnic, and just RELAXED. It was MUCH NEEDED. 

Oh, and my hubby made me some DELICIOUS dinner (lemon pepper chicken, salad & fruit) - have I ever mentioned how I LOVE it when he makes dinner? Well I do. :)
Davis tried his first pickle and LOVED was SO MESSY..but I didn't care!! :)

I hope YOU ALL had a FABULOUS WEEKEND! What did you do??
