General Conference, How I Love Thee

 This should actually be called conference WEEK because its a update on what we've been up to this past week. First thing's first: my latest projects! Below are Meg's recent orders, a mustard ruffle scarf and an owl hat! This is the hat without the face but you get the picture. :o) She's going to be all suited up for fall.

 Here is a hat I had only been making in baby sizes but decided to make in an adult size. I really like the mustard and navy together and I even used a vintage button from my mom's button collection. Love it.
 My sweetie brought these beautiful roses home to me one night this week. :o)
 Here's another adult sized owl hat I made. This time with the face on. I think they're pretty fun!
 Katie and I looked forward to our craft night all week. Katie came down from West Valley and we went craft shopping and found some awesome deals. We went to California Pizza Kitchen (a favorite of ours) and Coneys (also a favorite). Then we watched Lady Victoria and crafted for hours. We worked on flowers for her choir girls dresses and I made some wreaths like the one above, to sell in my booth at the farmer's market this Saturday.

Saturday morning we watched the first session of General Conference and ate cinnamon roll pancakes. Please try this recipe, seriously. Find it on this blog its delish!
 Saturday afternoon we headed to Kaysville to spend the rest of the weekend with Jer's family. After the afternoon session we had a little girl time while the guys went to priesthood. We got stuff to make delicious peach pies! I can't take any credit for making the pies though because we ended up watching a movie but Dianna sure made some wonderful dessert for our Sunday night treat!
I worked on a lot of projects while we were watching Conference. It was a great way to stay awake! Here's a scarf I just finished for my friend Alison. She picked this color, isn't it cute? Thanks to my cute sister-in-law Becca for modeling it for me. :o)

Highlights from Conference talks were:
-President Monson's refreshing animation whenever he came to the podium.
-President Eyring's tender closeness to the spirit and inspiring anecdotes about fulfilling our duties as ambassadors of Christ.
-The talk about fathers raising their daughters in righteousness.
-Loved it all!
