General Conference Weekend

WOW! That's all I can say talking about the weekend as a whole. I think many people will agree with me.

Friday: I went home as soon as I could because I had a date later that afternoon. Don't worry, I got home in time. Josh picked me up at my house and met my dad. For those of you who know my dad, he likes to intimidate guys that come over to my house. Josh was perfectly fine with my dad! SHOCKER! He actually told me after we closed the front door that he thought my dad was a fun guy. I haven't heard that one yet. On our way to dinner I had no idea that this date would be one of the best dates I've ever been on. We went to Applebee's for dinner which was really good and we had good conversations. We then went Mini Golfing where Josh was cheating and taunting me that I wasn't going to win. Yep, he kicked my trash. He actually got a hole in one. (bravo!) We then went to his house where I met his parents. I know his mom because she cuts my hair. I never met his dad until that night. His dad is awesome! He was so fun and outgoing. Usually dads seem intimidated or are busy with things. Then Josh played the piano for me. My heart melted when he played Phantom of the Opera for me. He is amazing at playing the piano but he doesn't take the credit for himself. We then watched the movie "Up". Good movie. While we were watching the movie, he put his arm around me. My stomach suddenly filled with butterflies. After the movie he took me home and all weekend we've been texting. Thanks Josh :)

Saturday: Pretty much a lazy day. We watched General Conference which was EPIC! I loved Elder Holland's talk on Gratitude. It made me realize that I should say Thank You more often. I should be more grateful in my prayers. I also liked Elder Hales talk about Agency and what we should do with our agency that we have. Another favorite talk that I liked was President Eyring's talk on Trusting in the Lord and listening and acting upon the spirit when it talks to us. I love General Conference. It's refreshing to hear the word of the prophet and to use them in our daily lives. During the priesthood session, Mom and I went to dinner and we rented some movies to watch. We watched "The Last Song" and "When In Rome". My mom and I have come to the conclusion that we both can't stand Miley Cyrus's acting! IT DRIVES US CRAZY! When in Rome was actually pretty good. :) I liked it.

Sunday: We had Ethan over, like every Sunday, where we had a homecooked meal :) *sigh* boy did I miss home cooked meals! It was so delicious that I was happy all day! We invited Grandma and Grandpa over for dinner as well which was nice. I've missed them both so much! It was really good to just relax at home with my family. I hadn't been home for a month so a trip home was LONG overdue! Thanks to my wonderful mom for cooking meals for me along with making texas sheet cake for dessert :) I love going home!
