TIME OUT FOR WOMEN!

FRIDAY AND SATURDAY WAS THE ANNUAL "TIME OUT FOR WOMEN" I GET TO WORK AT IT WITH THESE GREAT FRIENDS: KAREN, CANDICE AND BRENDA. WE ARE THE HAPPY DOOR GREETERS, HARD JOB, SMILING, SAYING GOOD MORNING AND LOOKING AT THEIR TICKETS.
YOU WOULD THINK BILL WOULD WANT TO GO TO "TIME OUT WITHOUT WOMEN" BUT WE VOLUNTEERED HIM TO BE THE PRIESTHOOD HOLDER FOR THE EVENT (WITH JERE AND ART)
HE LOCATED A COUPLE OF BABIES FROM OUR WARD HE COULD HOLD. THAT'S ONE OF HIS FAVORITE PASTIMES. (ABOVE IS BABY JAX AND BELOW IS BABY JOSHUA)

RAN INTO SOME GOOD FRIENDS FROM HEBER. I KNOW YOU CANT TELL WHO IS THE MOTHER. THEY ARE: FROM L-R MELANIE(MOM), KIMMIE, JESSICA AND AMANDA. I HAVE REALLY ENJOYED WATCHING THESE GIRLS GROW UP AND MARRY GREAT GUYS EXCEPT KIMMIE SHE IS STILL IN H.S. WE GOTTA GET MEL BLOGGING, SO I CAN KEEP UP ON THE REST OF THE TENNEY GANG!

WE GAVE THE SPEAKERS RIDES TO THE AIRPORT AND HAD FUN VISITS WITH THEM, BUT IT WOULD BE TACKING TO TAKE THEIR PICTURES NOW THAT WE ARE "GOOD FRIENDS" HAHA, SO I CASUALLY PUT THE CAMERA OVER MY SHOULDER AND PUSHED THE BUTTON, THIS IS WHAT I CAME UP WITH.
THIS IS THE HEAD OF DEAN HUGHES.
AND THIS IS MY FRIEND "JEN", KNOWN TO MOST OF YOU AS JENNY JORDAN FROGLEY. (BTW - SHE DOESN'T KNOW MY NAME AT ALL) SHE WAS OUR AMAZING MUSICAL PRESENTER FOR THE DAY. THE WHOLE EVENT WAS GREAT BUT MARRILEE BOYACKS TALK GAVE ME THE MOST FOR MY "TO DO" LIST. SHE TALKED ON MARRIAGE, AND I FEEL I HAVE A GREAT MARRIAGE, BUT SOME OF THE SUGGESTIONS I'M GONNA TRY TO DO BETTER AT. I JUST GOT LUCKY AND MARRIED THE PERFECT GUY, BUT I NEED TO REMEMBER HE DIDNT MARRY THE PERFECT GIRL. ALSO, I WAS IMPRESSED BY MICHAEL MCLEANS THOUGHTFULNESS OF THOSE GOING THROUGH DEPRESSION AND TO FIND HELP. THERE ARE MANY WHO, I'M SURE, WENT HOME WITH HOPE. CAMILLE FRONK OLSON TALKED ABOUT WOMEN IN THE SCRIPTURES AND JUST GAVE ME ENTHUSIASM TO TEACH MY GIRLS MORE ABOUT THEM.

I'm so jealous you got to go to that! I wish they had that here.....well, I guess we have Women's Conference :). ANYWAY, I actually graduated a year before Dani, so I'm pretty sure we're not the same age - I'm 21. Cara was my best friend all through high school and still is today. I lived in Queen Creek my whole life practically and was in the Queen Creek 1st Ward with the Greer Family. That is how I know Brad & Steph. My brother Jared Walker(goes by Jerry) graduated with Kayla this last year. SO, that is how I know all the people that you know. It's a small world afterall!

Kristal Mulder said...

Um, so it's not just me that you make feel special??? It's EVERYONE?!?!!!

The Epps Fam said...

Okay, I think we are talking about two different Caras. I am talking about Cara Hill - used to be Cara Christensen. I don't know Cara Fish, but I am sure she is a nice girl :). Sorry, I confused you. :)

AMY said...

Vonda your so cool, you are my idol. What more can I say

amanda.hall said...

We are moving to Pecan Creek which is Ironwood and Ocotillo. Is that in your stake? I would hope so... that would be awesome!
And let me just say that your posts are so funny! You're the greatest!

Vonda said...

Kristal - You gotta go with me next year, its a sista kind of thing, maybe me, you and Jen Frogley can hang.

Angie - So glad you could provide Bill with his entertainment at TOFW, cuz I dont think he was feeling the Love with Micheal Mclean, BTW, go over and help Amy get pictures on so she can get to blogging. We couldnt get them on?

Amanda, thats not our stake:-( but its a fun area for families your age and your still within driving distance to have Tenney/Hancock/Hall/Guttery Card nights. Amys blog is going to be up and running within the next day or so, so that Grandma Sheri can keep up with their cute family.

I was thinking Cara Fish, but I know who Cara Hill is too, so were all good.
