I am Lucky!!


This last weekend I had three of my five best friends here with me- my sisters! Unfortunately, my other two BFF's Becca and Ali couldn't make it! But Hanna, Sharla, and Katie were all able to come down! Hanna was able to bring her daughter Chandler too! Can I just say BLAST! I haven't been home for almost seven months so I was really getting home sick!

They got here on Friday around 4:30. I showed them my house, (which I loved because my sisters are always so willing to compliment and make you feel good, which I appreciated)and then we just hung out and ate dinner so that they could unwind from their drive. Then later at night we had our second dinner- YES -second! (That is one great thing about my sisters, we all love to eat and aren't afraid to either!) We ordered Panda and then got some movies to watch! It was so nice to visit and relax.

Saturday morning we left fairly early and went to St. George. We shopped at the DI (of course-oh the goodies), I showed them my favorite store Rue 21 and they all loved it! And then off to Tai Pan. We had lunch in St. George and just were able to shop, laugh, and have so much fun! We came back, took a short nap and then headed out to pick up some yummy Costa Vida (thank you Katie). We had to eat fast because a few of my friends came over at 7:30 to play games.
One of the greatest things about my family as that they aren't afraid to be themselves. So they weren't afraid to joke around and tease my friends, which I love. We had fun playing Gestures and sharing funny things about our lives.

Even though my friends left late, My sisters and I headed to the store and got some treats. Then we came home and made crafts and watched some more movies!



I loved showing my sisters off on Sunday to my friends here in Cedar. It was such a relaxing weekend and I had SO MUCH fun! It was sad to see them go, but I know it won't be to much longer before I make a trip to Idaho! I love you guys so much!
(here are some pic's of us together, the girls, and game night)

The best part of having sisters is that we are all so close! People ask me all the time why we are so close. And I truly believe a big reason is our age. We are all so close in age and I love it! Also, I really believe that we were able to bond even more during FHE! And because my parents had it every Monday night, I also think that is why we are all so close! It may sound silly, but I know that is a huge part of our strong bond!! I am grateful that no matter where life takes me or what friends I have that come and go - my sisters will be constant forever! What a blessing!

Come again soon guys!! I love you all so much! I feel so blessed to have the best sisters in the world !! Love ya!

It looks and sounds like you guys had so much fun!! I so wish I could have been there to play games and hang out...I was at Sizzler (can I just say YUCK) w/ Rob's fam. Would have much rather been with you. You and your sisters are so sweet together, I always wanted a sister, but no. However, I have been blessed w/ wonderful sisters-in-law (is that how you say that?) Anyway, I am glad they came to visit and that it helped with you homesickness. It's been 7 months, you do need to go home! That's way too long.

Bonnie--you girls are so lucky to have each other. It must be wonderful to have such a close relationship with your sisters. I have always admired this about your family. Secretly, I wish I was the seventh sister! Love ya!
