Mohawks, Roses, and Chickenpox

A few weekends ago, Matt and I made the LONG drive to Salt Lake City to attend the 179th General Conference. Our friend's, Monica and Bryan, also drove down to come to conference with us. We made the mistake of staying up VERY late the night before, and we were sooo tired. It was quite the struggle to stay awake. The talks were excellent! We wanted to take pictures around temple square like we did last year but the weather was super wet, cold, and rainy. So, we went to the Spaghetti Factory for lunch. Yum!

Matt is a ghost!

Matt, me, Bryan, and Monica
Last Friday, we went golfing with our friends in Rigby!
Ali checking out Matt's swing lol

I cut Matt's hair into a mohawk! It looks pretty sweet! I can't believe he actually trusted me to do it, but I did a pretty good job I think!

So, Easter Sunday was kind of a bust this year. Matt's whole family went over to Grandma and Grandpa Briggs' house for an Easter feast. Sadly, we could not go because Matt somehow got shingles! (it's like the adult version of chicken pox) He's been in quite a bit of pain these past 2 weeks =[ Shinlges are highly contagious to elderly people and little kids, so we didn't want to risk passing it to his grandparents. So...2 days ago I bought Matt a little Easter basket with some new sandals, body wash, and a loofa to try to help him feel better. He really liked it! To surprise me, Matt brought home a delicious chicken alfredo dinner from Johnny Carino's. We ate it all in less than 5 minutes. It was so dang good. He also surprised me with some cute little pink roses! I love you, Matt!!!!!!
Yes, the roses are in the blender. It was the closest thing we own to a vase. LOL
Here's Matt's shingles. This picture does NOT do them justice. This picture was taken after he'd already had them for over 3 weeks. They used to be way bigger and a lot more worse looking. Right now, they're in the blistering stage which means they aren't contagious anymore! yay!

That is so funny - I love that you put your flowers in a blender.

That should be your new thing even if you get a vase. It would totally make you smile and be your own inside joke...
