Time Out for Women in Nashville

**Don't forget to enter the $100 giveaway here**

A couple of weeks ago I had the sweet opportunity to spend the weekend with some fabulous ladies for some fun in Nashville! We started out with some shopping and a yummy lunch at my new favorite fresh mex place, Chipolte! Delish--have you been there?! So good!! I wish there was one in Chattanooga-dang it!

We found a lot of GREAT deals, but my favorite purchase was getting these cute Born sandals for a steal! They were originally $95 and I got them for $18! Woo hoo! I was so happy about these cuties that I texted this shot to my Mom and sisters:) I miss shopping with them! We always loved to get a hot deal!
So we enjoyed good eats, awesome shopping, a beautiful hotel, fun company....but the BEST part of the whole weekend was the Time Out for Women conference we attended.

The theme was 'Choose to Become' All things are possible to him that believeth. Mark 9:23 The presenters were well prepared and so inspiring, nudging us to choose to become the women we are suppossed to be. I took notes like a mad woman and had fun sharing them with my family later. Beautiful messages and testimonies of Jesus Christ were given and I soaked it all up:)

I do believe with all my heart that God has a plan for each one of us. We are His precious children with divine--beautiful, unique talents and gifts. It is thrilling for me to know that a loving Father in Heaven will lead and guide us in our lifes work, as we seek His guidance and are willing to do our part. I think that is the key to true happiness. When your hearts desire is to please the Lord and dedicate your life to Him and His work you can't go wrong!

And enjoying the rockers!

It was a sweet weekend and now I am especially excited for BYU Women's Conference at the end of the month. I have already booked my flight and purchased my ticket. This years theme is "By Small and Simple Things Are Great Things Brought to Pass. " Alma 37:6-7 One of my all time favorite scriptures!

It is going to be good! Are you going?

Way cute shoes, Melanie! Even better with a price tag like that! Maybe we'll have warm enough weather in a few weeks so you can wear them - 'course I'm not sure you want to be running around BYU in those heals! :) Can't wait to see you!
