Weekend Updates.

This weekend...
D and I had great success on our little Saturday shopping escapade. We found the COOLEST hats at World Market that we just couldn't pass up. (p.s....I love that the trees behind us make it look like we're in the forest!)

M's raccoon hat.

D's owl hat.

We also found a place in SLC that sells Milka bars! D was so excited. Milka bars are the most popular chocolate bars in Europe, and they are made in Germany where D served his mission. It was some of the best chocolate I've ever had. We'll have to go back for more!

We also went to Red Robin with D's family on Saturday night. I think I ate half an onion ring tower by myself, and it was wonderful. I wish I had gotten a picture of my nephew Jace flashing the U of U sign to the table of girls next to us. You can see a picture of him here. (He's the one with the mohawk, of course!)

To get into the Halloween spirit, D and I also cuddled up and watched Shutter Island this weekend. D isn't much for scary movies, but he indulged me on this one. It turned out to be a really great movie! We both recommend it.

Last weekend...
We headed up to D's cabin last weekend to watch conference and see the gorgeous fall leaves. It was absolutely perfect up there! It felt like we really got away from the world, and we were able to really focus on the messages from our leaders.

and a few weekends before...
D decided to be a super awesome and thoughtful husband, and placed a little blue box on my lap for no reason at all! He's the sweetest ever.
The card read:

What better color to find your keys with?


I opened the box to find the most adorable key chain ever from T & Co. He said he noticed the key chain I had was getting pretty worn out so he decided to buy me a new one. [Insert mushy ooohs and awwws here]. He sure knows how to pick 'em! Thanks, D!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
And if you're a U of U student, enjoy your Fall Break!
