This time around Brand and I actually had plans on our weekend. Lately it's been just lots of studying for school, but I'm not complaining because this is totally what I expected. But it was nice to have time to go and do something together.
So this weekend we went to the Gilbert, Arizona Temple open house. I cannot tell you enough how much I LOVE this temple. The inside is so extremely beautiful it's almost indescribable. If you live in the Phoenix are, heck if you live in Arizona you must go see the temple! It's open to the public until the 15, the last day people without a temple recommend are able to go inside. So take advantage of it, see what our temples are all about.
I love being on temple grounds. I feel so much peace when I'm there, especially being inside.
So that was our Saturday in a nutshell, after the temple we went to Cafe Zupas, where I rediscovered my love for their Wisconsin cauliflower soup. I love it! I mean the name does not appease me in the least, cauliflower? Yeah, no thanks, but really it's the most wonderful thing I've ever had. I also re-realized how inexpensive Cafe Zupas is, more date nights there are necessary.
Friday night we went to Cheese Cake Factory with Brand's friends from school. It's fun to see them in a different setting, I like having friends and people that we can hangout with. I branched out and tried a different cheese cake, not my personality, but I was very pleased and my new favorite might be the chocolate chocolate mousse. Thee perfect amount of chocolate that's for sure. And while I'm talking about chocolate this weekend in Glendale there is a chocolate affair. Yup, I'll be there.
Sunday Brand's brother and his wife and kids came into town and tonight we had a big fun family home evening at peter piper. I love family time, it's the best. I especially love seeing all those scrunchy baby/toddler smiles! Mix that with my new favorite cheese cake and you'll have the best day ever.
Happy Monday Friends!
