blessed conference.

miss and i went up saturday morning. incredible. i ended up staying for saturday afternoon and then went back all today as well. i don't know how the families who are in general callings do it. i am exhausted.

i learned lots and lots and lots. good personal insights. maybe i'll scan my notes. i remembered again how weird i am - i have to have a journal with no lines. i feel too claustrophobic when i confined to lines. i write out phrases or words that stand out to me and go all over - in every direction.

sister bagley and her husband where at conferene when miss and i got there so we sat with them - and the norby's and featherstone's and van wagenen's. talk about some of my very favorite people in the world all around. because we were sitting by each other, i tried to save us all seats together for the afternoon session while they all ran to eat (i packed a sandwich). i almost got all the seats, but a pregnant lady sat in the one of the ones i was saving and i didn't know how to tell her to move it. :( so the norby's split up. i felt bad!!

sister bagley

today, sister bagley was there early and saved me a spot. so nice. she was so nice about my "cute" notes. little does she know that Academy For Girls and Kelly Platt taught me all my "cute" note skills!

today's afternoon session, i got to tag along with mike and amanda petersen - and i can just shout how much i love them?? they crack me up on a daily - yes, that's how lucky i am, i see them daily!! - basis. AND then i got to have moments at conference with them. wow.

i was wearing a little felt flower that i half made saturday night. we actually had a "craft" night somewhat during priesthood last night. and i actually participated!! after much moaning, miss finally cut the flower shapes out for me. but i did do the leaves and sew all the pieces together. i wore my flower today and had a number of compliments! as becca texted me, "see, crafts are fun!" who knew??

i'll find the pics we took last night and get them on here asap.

peace out.
ps it was fabulous to meet becca's friend lindy tonight!! we have been hearing lots about this fun friend and tonight we met her in living color! too bad i was ready for bed at 8:30 pm and then came over to the apartment to find it in DiSaStEr mode! i forgot that i had just thrown things around this entire week because i was so tired with Relief Society trainings until 9:30 PM. so i am finally in bed ready to sleep. blast.
