I tried to enjoy my trip to AZ even before the exam so...

we went to a christmas concert to try and get in the Christmas spirit,
even though we were freaking out because we had the biggest exam of our lives looming over our heads.

went to the Mesa Temple to find some peace,

....and of course we took the test, but I don't have pictures of that. Also, I was LOVING the warm weather!

After the test it was a lot easier to have fun. 
{I just had my iphone if you couldn't tell from the beautiful quality of photos}

We went out to eat at Oregano's. We all passed!! {I stole this pic from Z's blog}
Yeah, I know I look pregnant. I'm not.

 and went to see the lights at the temple

It was sooo pretty, and this picture doesn't show it at all,
so you'll have to just take my word for it .

There were these adorable lemon trees all over the mesa temple grounds! I am now convinced there will be a lemon tree (or 3) in my front yard.

Ok Taryn, you're in big trouble. I live like 1 minute away from Oregano's!!!!!!!!!! I would have loved to have seen you, but I understand you were busy with your test too :) Maybe I will let it slide! Glad you had a good time besides the test and liked the weather. Call me next time you're in AZ and have time okay!!
