When I am the real me!

There have been plenty of moments, days, and maybe longer when I am not my real self. Typically this has been because I was too worried about what other people would think of me and lacked confidence. I feel like am the real me when... 1. I am teaching a lesson or giving a talk about the gospel of Jesus Christ. 2. I am in a Presidency meeting 3. I am alone and just relax by watching TV or reading a book 4. I am talking to my mom 5. I am listening to another person's problems and they have come to me for advice and/or compassion.

Answer to Prayer

My best friend Laurie called me last Monday. It was an answer to prayer and one that wasn't even spoken, just said in my heart for a few days. It was fun just to catch up and just unload. So thankful for my bestie!!!!

So like I said in a previous post I went to Time Out For Women down in Richmond. I went with some of my closest friends...Cat, Jennifer, and Anna. Cat's sister and Jennifer's mom also came, so it was such a great group. For those who may not know what TOFW's LDS speakers and musicians who give amazing talks and performances. I wanted to blog about one performance in particular. Michael McLean is trying to get his production "Threads" on Broadway. The inspiration came when he was taking his little grand daughter to Costco. She saw a pink dress with a cupcake on it and looooved it. He bought it for her and this little girl was in heaven. That night he had a dream with women walking down a runway in different clothes that represented who they were. He then thought about the different "threads" his grand daughter would wear throughout her life. He wrote some music and it became a play. It is a one-person play and she dresses up in different characters. At the end of each song she places an article of clothing on a mannequin. At the end she puts them on and sings about how they have made her the woman she is now. The woman who does this has an incredible voice and it got a standing ovation. The website has a video. It made me think about the people and experiences I have had that have shaped me. I still have a long ways to go, but am so grateful for my family and friends who love me for me.

Pretty Darn Funny

Love these videos! Just sayin'.

Ummm...Yeah it has been forever

It has been way too long since I blogged!!!! The reason? Laziness, work, not feeling like I had anything to write about, Facebook for some reason seems easier...oh let me count the excuses. :-) So here is what has been happening in my life. - Both of my sisters got married in the Spring to awesome guys. So get this...Chrystal married a Chris, Brittney married a Spencer (my brother's name), and Spencer is married to a Krystal. - This summer I visited Spencer's family is Albuquerque, NM. My nieces are so dang cute!!! I then flew to San Diego to visit Chrystal and Chris. I got to do a little house shopping with them which was fun! Also my sister is so sweet and got me some cute tops for work. - School has started back up and I am once again at Mullen Elementary. I also am at Parkside Middle School one day a week. - Still love serving in Young Women's. - I went to Time Out For Women with a group of friends. My favorite parts were the singing by Mercy River, songs Michael McLean's production of "Threads", and the talk by Heidi Swinton (the author of President Monson's biography). Pretty exciting huh? :-)

I tried Calamari!

So the title of this post is a little misleading. I wanted to blog about going out to dinner with an amazing group of women from my Ward. (We went to a Thai restaurant and we ordered a bunch of appetizers. One of those appetizers was Calamari. My friend and I decided we would try it together and I actually liked it.)

We have gotten to be friends because we all play basketball together. (Yes, I am playing b-ball and I guess that is another post as to why a 4'11" girl is playing a sport meant for tall people.) Anyways, all of them are married and have young children. The cool thing about it is that I did not feel out of place at all!!! They were just wonderful about including me in their conversations and I loved hearing about their cute kids. It was just a blast and we laughed a lot!!!! I am so looking forward to the next Girl's Night!!!!
