Here's to you babe!

Brittney left to Girl's Camp on Tuesday morning. This is her first full week of camp at Camp Stimpson and needless to say she wasn't quite sure what to expect. She came home yesterday to run some quick "camp errands" and stopped by my parent's house for lunch and to see me and Kate. Having Brittney gone for the week has really helped me to realize how lucky I am and what a great woman, mother and wife she is. Here's a quick list of things I love about Brittney.
  • Kate & I come first.
  • She is so dedicated to whatever church calling she has, i.e. Beehive advisor, Activity committee chair, assitant camp director...
  • She always strives to make people who come over feel comfortable and at home.
  • She will listen to me talk about whatever is on my mind.
  • She is always willing to try new things.
  • She's way more creative than I'll ever be.
  • I love that she's keeping record of our familiy with all the pictures she takes.
  • Her patience with me is never ending no matter what I do wrong.
  • She loves my family and loves to be around them.
  • She loves to cook for me and have dinner ready when I get home.
  • She's a great friend to everyone she meets.
  • She has a great love for the gospel and is usually the one reminding us to read & pray.
  • She has great faith to be obedient to whatever is asked of her.
  • She's a great driver!
  • She loves to play Rockband & Guitar Hero.
  • She's totally fine with staying home and playing Nerts, Rook or Rummikub.
  • She loves to ride the jet skis at Lake Powell. I think if we only went for 1 day and she got to go on a jet ski ride she'd be happy.
  • She has her own bowling gear and is so cute when we go bowling.
  • She's absolutely gorgeous! (and for some reason thinks I am too???)
  • And much, much more...(This is the picture that pops up on my phone whenever she calls, I really like it)

Most of the posts you've made have been about others. I wanted to turn the spotlight on you for once and remind people just how great you are. I love you!
