Yay!

** Spring break was great!! I had such a wonderful time with my family. We went to a lake house on Lake Texoma.  It was so nice to be away from everything. We had very little cell phone service, no computer, nada. I LOVED IT. We shot bb guns, played board games, just hung out... together. My sister and her kids came up on Tuesday to hang out. She took lots of pics... and they are still on her camera. When I get them from her I will post them. Thank you, again, Patti and family for hookin' us up with a great deal at the lake!!!!

** Today we had a special meeting for church. Elder Dallin H. Oaks came to speak to us. It was awesome. He was funny and down to earth. I loved his message. Sei worked on the security detail so he was actually allowed to save us seats- which wasn't allowed. I felt like a VIP walking to our seats and getting to sit in saved seats with 200 people having to sit behind us. I wonder what they were thinking... haha  Anyway, Elder Oaks came around and shook our hands. He came to me and said, "I shook your hand already, right?" and I said, "I carried a watermelon." WHAT MOVIE!? Just kidding, I didn't say that. I said, "No, not yet." so he said, "Welcome to conference!" and shook my hand, while placing his hand on my right shoulder. Then he shook hands with Tristan, Alec, my mom and sister. Seiuli actually got to hang out with him for a while after the meeting since Sei was his bodyguard. ;) They're tight like that. haha Anyway... the points I took down from his talk were basically: DON'T BE STUPID and TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR ACTIONS.  Pretty cut and dry. I loved his stories and his sense of humor. He is REAL and he is called of God.

** In the last year it seems like the only posts I did on my blog were either for money or for bitching. It's been a rough year. But I am finally feeling like myself again!!!! I am stoked! It's hard to lose yourself and total control of your life. I'm glad to be back. :)
