High Five for Friday

It's Friday (FINALLY!!!) and I thought I'd shoot a quick post!

5 of my favorite things from this week:

1. This lovely Q&A  journal from Barnes & Noble that I am wanting. It asks you a new question every day, and it's a five year journal! Kind of fun so you can see how your answers change through the years.

3. My loverly family!! My uncle Clayton married Neesha a week ago and I took some impromptu family portraits. I love my family so much!

The Bride & Groom!

3. These Soap Eggs from Etsy. Don't you just love eggs? I think I'm getting these for my mom for something..Christmas perhaps. She loves eggs and these seem so her.

4. So glad this is gone!!! On June 1st my appendix decided it hated me and wanted out. Worst stomach pain of my life. Today is my 3 week mark and I am allowed to go back to normal now! Still sore once in a while, but I'm feeling recovered and grateful everything went well.

5. Going home to make this goodness for our Thacker outing tomorrow at Copperton park. Gotta love some frog eyes!!

There's my five for Friday!

Cox Honeyland, Logan, Utah

One of our stops during our anniversary trip was Cox Honeyland in Logan. They are famous for their creamed honey that Steven and I both love. 

In the giftshop they have tons of cute things relating to bees and honey. They even have a hive type thing showing the bees making honey. Really cool!

Cute candles and sculptures made on beeswax

Every kind of honey you could want too.

They have a little testing station where you can try all the flavors with a small spoon. The raspberry creamed honey was our favorite! Next to that is a little fudge section where you can get a free sample too. Really tasty stuff, but just too much sugar for the both of us.

We left with some raspberry creamed honey and a brown sugar keeper. Ir's a terracotta disc that you soak in water and it keeps yoiu sugar soft for months. I've been wanting one forever! Time to make some homemade bread for that honey!

Smith and Edwards

As part of our 1 year anniversary trip we stopped in Ogden to a store called Smith and Edwards.  This store is like a mish-mash of about 10 different stores with a giant junk yard in the back. Kind of like a D/I/, an NPS, a Cabelas, a walmart and more. If you go, plan on spending at least two hours. That will be a "quick" run through.

 The biggest part of the store is probably the army surplus section. They have EVERYTHING an army would need to go to war. Clothing, parachutes, tents and more.

 Lots of vintage clothing from past wars.

 Old uniforms of every kind.

Bomb fuses - one of the MANY random things they have.

 Want to go panning for gold?

Lots of weird German things

 Lots of heavy duty fabric, mostly camouflage.

Need a machete?

A giant bell!!!

This entire isle was all cast iron things. Even a wok!

A giant canning jar

Wrapping paper

And guns!!!

WWII helmets
 And ammo casing

Which the cleverly made into flower pots
