I love my sweetie!!!

I have the best husband in the world. I am just so lucky to have someone is attentive and so thoughtful. He planned a surprise date for us on Saturday night. He told me on Friday to be in church clothes and ready to leave the house at 5 pm on Saturday. Of course I was intrigued but figured out where we were going. OC Tanner was sponsering a concert with the Utah Symphony and Mormon Tabernacle Choir and guest performers. I had seen the advertisement for it and thought it sounded wonderful but didn't think of seeing if we wanted to go. Luckily my sweet husband thought of it too.

The night started out with dinner at the Lion House pantry. You may ask why this restaurant? This is where we ate right before Tony proposed to me at Temple Square so it has a lot of sentimental meaning. I love the food there, so filling and homeade. Delicious!!! The concert was themed with Americana songs and broadway styled music. They had 2 guest performers, Denyce Graves an opera singer and then there was this gentleman name Brian Stokes Mitchell. He was so incredible. Check out his website and listen to some of the songs or go to itunes and listen to his broadway songs.

All I can say is people miss out by not going these events especially when they are free! Thanks my love for such a wonderful date and for always being so thoughtful!!!

Financial Peace University

Has anyone heard of Dave Ramsey? Well, if you haven't you should check out what he is all about. Tony and I's stake is sponsoring this wonderful financial program called "Financial Peace University" which Dave Ramsey created. The LDS church is not anyway affiliated with this program but our stake felt so strongly about this program they are sponsering it through Zion's bank.

Tony and I are so excited about it. We are excited to learn more about creating wealth and getting rid of debt. The first step is creating a $1000 emergency fund. We are on our way!!!What a great peace of mind and blessing it is to be on our way to financial freedom.

Feed Station #7

Tony and the kids have been volunteering for the Lotoja bike race for the past 4 years. The bike race is 200 miles and starts in Logan and ends up in Jackson Hole. I was lucky enough to be able to volunteer with them this year. They are always assigned to Feedstation #7 which is the last station before the riders go into Jackson Hole. It is such a beautiful area and so exciting to see them riding up the hill, what an accomplishment. Here are a few pictures:
