Why is it so hard to wear them?

They tell you that they will be a protection, they say wear them, day and night, besides swimming, bathing, and being intimate, and maybe vigorous physical exercise. Isn't that worth it to have that protection that they say, just to keep a promise?

Yet they feel they are the exception to the rule. They think that doing a photo shoot, and not wearing them for a few hours will be okay.

Well it's not. I have a problem saying I like your pictures when I know you're being immodest, and not being the example you should be. All my life I have been taught to be modest, to be an example to those who are not of our faith. I try hard. Why can't you?

2 weeks

In 2 weeks (and a few days, but who's counting?) or 17 days (not sure which one sounds less time) this guy comes home, and the family will be complete again! :)

Cute Picture

I was going through pictures on the computer and happened to come across these pictures...

Family History

A few weeks ago I emailed my dad's cousin Rob, and his wife Carla to see if they happened to have any family history stuff. Of course they did. They were so very willing to send me a lot of what they had. Let me just say it was probably the best day when I got a large envelope from them, and then they sent a 14lbs box full of stuff too! How awesome are they!? Here are some pictures from the olden days. My family. Awesome!

This is my Uncles and Dad. Isn't my dad the cutest!?

This is my dear Grandma Ted who died before I was born from cancer. All I can imagine from the pictures that I have, is she was the sweetest person ever! I love her and I don't even know her. But I will meet her someday.
Here are the Higgins Family. The top row is Jimmy, Rob, Mary Belle, Don, Ted and Tony. The second row is Belle Boone and James Stone Higgins (my great grandparents). This was taken in Christmas of 1950. The only person that I have met is Don, he is still living and located in NYC. Sadly I don't think he would remember me because he's got Alzheimer's. :(

Thanks Rob and Carla!

First Camping trip EVA!

So my mom and her husband, Michael invited us up to Hobble Creek Canyon for a night of camping the weekend we were to go to San Francisco. It was the first time we ever used our sleeping bags and our tent. :D We definitely want to do it again. I learned I should probably get things together for future camping trips so I'm not frantic in finding things to take.
Saturday Morning
Don't we just look SO awake?!
Our Awesome Tent!

The night before after Chase's work party!

The way to San Fran...

So last Tuesday night Chase and I flew out to San Francisco for our anniversary! Yes it's true we've been married for officially 2 years now. WOW!

On the Plane
The only good picture I got of the Golden Gate Bridge

The guy we talked to when we were getting our rental car said that we could rent a 2010 mustang for only $12 per day! That is pretty dang good seeing as Chase is "under-aged" for renting a car. So of course I said yes, just feeding into Chase's obsession for one day getting a mustang.Chase Proving that he really did drive it, and not just find it and take a picture with it.
Pretty sweet ride, right?

The first day Chase and I rented bikes because the tickets were all sold out of Alcatraz. Either we didn't go or pay $75 per person for 2 tickets to Alcatraz and get a double-decker bus ride tour around the city. Definitely not worth the price. :) So we opted out of that. It was a long bike ride... Well 3 miles but it seriously felt like 10! :D

Us on the other side, not in San Fran, a lot warmer that's for sure
Before crossing the Golden Gate Bridge

Eating Ice Cream in Sausalito
Yummy Almond Praline

Right before we got ice cream this a girl on the street asked me to sign a petition to help over-throw prop 8. I was nice and said no thanks, but let me say I just wanted to go and punch her, and tell her that she's never going to win... But Chase held me back. After we sat down to eat ice cream some guy told her off and she was gone before I knew it. Chase told me to let it go... It took me a while but I eventually let it go.

Us on the ferry back to San Fran

This is how bad the wind was and I didn't have a hairbrush OR a hair thing

We ate at In-N-Out Chase wanted to show the guys at work that he would at least try and eat there one more time to see if it was better than the other times he's been there. For sure it was better, but the sad thing was it was freezing outside, and there were no places to eat inside.

Chase thought this guy was so cool, so we gave him a tip and got a picture with us. He asked us why we were in San Francisco and we told him it was for our anniversary and then he said well are you still madly in love, and we said yes (of course!) and then he said prove it! So Chase gave me a hot kiss! :D He said okay you proved it! :)
At the sourdough factory, I thought these were so cute.
So cool! We hiked up this took some pictures and then hiked down it. THEN Chase wanted to drive on it, and so I recorded that. It was fun! Crazy fun! Don't want to live on that road.
On our way to the Jelly Belly Factory
The bridge we used to cross the bay. P.S. expensive toll!
Us getting ready for the tour. We were REQUIRED to wear these hats through the tour. We got rid of them afterwards when receiving our own little baggy of Jelly Belly's. MMM We bought a lot of Belly Flops. :)
Outside the Jelly Belly Factory
Tickets to the Winchester Mansion
Walking the crazy low-risers this was a LONG staircase, we walked 100 ft to go 10 ft up. Crazy right? 7 turns...
Outside the Mansion
My favorite restaurant, too bad Utah doesn't have one. :(
Sea Lions. Wow. They were SO lazy!
Us on Pier 39

Oakland Temple. It was closed for cleaning so we couldn't do a session. We wanted to go to the Sacramento temple, but It was 2 hours there, 2 hours for a session, and 2 hours + home. Not too worth it. :( Next time
Love this picture! PLUS no wind
Anniversary Dinner. Our server gave us a sundae, yum! Love this place!

So glad we were able to get away before a busy week getting 3 DVD's done. :( Want to be back. Love that city!
