Citrus Blossom FF

1.  At this very moment I am swinging on the swing in the backyard smelling the amazing aroma of citrus blossoms.  I wish I could put a scratch and sniff sticker of what I'm smelling on my blog so that you could all smell it too!  It is so incredibly delicious smelling!  The entire month of March smells like this and I'm loving it!
2.  Speaking of things that I'm loving; spending all of my free time with Mr. J.  Mr. J and I can't seem to get enough time with each other.  I see him every day, which is something I've never experienced, except for maybe when I was in High School.  I love that he only lives 2 miles from me and I don't have to drive 30 minutes to see him.  When he returned Sunday evening after being gone for only 2 1/2 days I felt like Heaven in his arms!  I love that I fit so perfectly in them!  He is so funny and I love that we both laugh a lot when we are together.
3.  Saturday morning I went for my 4 mile jog.  I jog to a park and then all over it.  I see lots of different things going on at the park; dog training, tennis matches, baseball games, swimming lessons, people having breakfast and drinking diet coke, kids playing on the playground equipment, other joggers and walkers and people just enjoying a Saturday morning at the park.  I love this time of my week when I can put my headphones in and get lost in my thoughts!
4.  I went to the noon session at the Mesa Temple on Saturday.  There were only 9 people in the entire session, pretty crazy. The temple is so beautiful.  It was such a relaxing, wonderful experience.  The sister that I did work for was Daisy Rose, who was born in Louisiana in 1880.  I told Mr. J he needed to add Rose to his cute little dogs name because her name is Daisy.  I'm not a dog person, but this dog is darling and well trained.  After the temple I went to the play Oklahoma by myself, something I've never done, but I wanted to see it at the Hale Theater and I had my afternoon free so I took advantage of the opportunity.  I had a front row seat amongst the senior citizens who also attended the matinee.  It was such a cute play, a little long but cute!  I then met Deborah, her kids, Laura's kids and Leslie and Gordon at In & Out.  I've never been there and don't think I'd frequent it either.  Not sure what all the hype is about, but I've definitely had better hamburgers.  Deborah, Leslie and I then went to the delicious shaved ice place with ice cream in the middle.  We shared the calories from one shaved ice.  It was so delicious.
5.  Wednesday Mr. J and I hiked Lookout Mountain.  We could see the Phoenix Temple that is being built from the top of the mountain.  It was a little more difficult than last week's hike but I enjoyed it and my hiking partner.  He said to me, "This week Lookout Mountain, next week Make-out point!"  I told you he is funny!  I love it!  We of course enjoyed lunch and then I had to go to work.  Insert sad face =(.  I look like a nerd-brain in this picture.  I told Mr. J no more ugly picture taking of me, he thinks I look cute here.  Whatever.  You can't see Mr. J's awesome eyes in the picture, but I promise I'll get one for you this weekend!
6.  Yesterday morning I woke to little white roses and a note that said, "Thanks again for another wonderful Wednesday."  AHHHHHH!  I'm excited for another wonderful weekend with Mr. J and the little A's!
