Weeeeekend Time.

Yeaaaah budddy... I love the weekends. They are great!
Especially this one because it's GENERAL CONFERENCE!
See here.

So, my roommates and I went to this mornings session. And I'm going to tomorrow mornings session with my brother! And I'm going to tomorrow afternoons session with my roommates. So much fun. I'm such a lucky girl.

Getting to be in the same room as so many general authorities of the church and getting to hear them speak in person is such a neat experience. If you haven't ever been to conference before, I highly recommend making a special trip to go! I hadn't ever been until last October. But I'm now hooked and will hopefully be able to go to one session each conference as long as I live in Utah.

After conference today, we went to the new mall by Temple Square, City Creek Center. And boy oh boy is it nice! Top notch right there. It's an outdoor mall and we cut through it to go to conference and didn't even realize that it was the mall til we were half way through it! It's so pretty and doesn't have the complete commercial feel of a normal mall. It's classy!

Three Things I'm Thankful For:

General Conference
Hearing from the prophet and simply receiving two days of spiritual enlightenment. It is so amazing. I've never been more thankful for it in my life. I can't explain how much I love general conference. I always took it for granted when I was growing up, but it is so inspiring.

...and extended family in general. I am staying up at my Grandpa's house for the weekend and man have I missed being in a home. It's such a great feeling that you probably aren't quite thankful for until you've been living in a tiny dorm room for sometime.. I have also just missed my Grandpa. He is so awesome. He loves watching movies with me and is so cool. He's 81 and he has an iPhone 4, iPad, 3 computers, and 2 HDTV's. Hahah...Man he loves technology! Plus he is soooo talented. He has a wood shop and makes all of this furniture. Such a stud.
Plus I got to hang out with my Aunt, cousins, and their little kids during Priesthood session. So so so great. Love them so much.

This advice from the awesome Bishop Olsen:
It is not enough just to be thankful for things, but you must act upon those things. They must drive you to do right and strive to do better.

Oh and the MTC Choir that sang at the afternoon session today, yeah I knew two of those AWESOME missionaries! Plus did you see Elder Archuleta!?!
