How beautiful is she? Her prom date Ammon was a cutie too! A great big thanks to my friend Stephanie for helping us to shorten the train and use the extra to add sleeves.

We also had an awesome visit from the Ramirez girls from California! I watched all of them grow up in my home ward in Van Nuys. Andrea (our flower girl all grown up), Eda, and Emily.

SNAP Conference

Hello all! I FINALLY was able to add pictures to the computer and add to the blog! Yay! This is the biggest reason for my absence.
This past week I had the privilege of attending SNAP! Conference here at Thanksgiving Point in Lehi, UT. I bought the tickets last year and thought it would never come. And now it’s gone. I went with my friend Carol. Check out other posts about 2013 SNAP Conference Recap & Linky
This was my first experience attending this type of conference, and let me tell you, I felt so welcomed and intimidated at the same time. I was “star-struck” to meet other bloggers that I follow. The conference was held Thursday-Saturday and I had to miss Friday. I was so mad because it was the night for the Queen Bee Market, which I was looking forward to. The woes of parenthood, my little Ellie passed on her stomach flu to me. Thankfully, it was only 24 hours unlike Ellie’s for 3 days.
I will share my pics and I will have Carol share hers on another post.


We were greeted with a bag filled with swag! It was awesome! And then we had a chance to obtain more information about the sponsors and their products.

At the welcome dinner, we had a great key note speaker and yummy food. The ambiance was energizing!


Lucky for us, it is time for their annual Tulip Festival on the grounds and we received a free ticket to tour the gardens. Amazing..


My most favorite classes were the Parties That Wow and


Poppy Seed Projects


(Yes, I did this!)


I cannot thank the organizers enough! It was an amazing experience and I can’t wait to go again next year!

Sorry for the lack of pictures. Like I said, I was hit and miss since it was local. I will ask Carol to add her pictures as she is such a great photographer and hers are way better than mine anyways.

Thanks for stopping by!
