Conference Weekend

I had a great weekend (minus the car key incident I noted earlier). I spent most of my time sleeping, eating delicious food, watching movies and hanging out with family. I don't think I have gotten THAT much sleep on a weekend since I was in high school. One day I think I took 3 naps...that can't be too healthy, but I felt great.

The highlight (besides all of my cute nieces), however, was conference. I must admit, I am a conference nerd. I love it. While everyone was talking, playing picture games on paper or eating, I was taking notes. Okay, Okay, I did also fall asleep for two of the talks, but who doesn't on occasion?

I had a few one-liners that I really liked:

"Come what may, and love it."


"Faith is a decision."

I also cried like a little baby, no offense to you babies out there, when the story about the deaf girl and the boy in the wheelchair was told. I am a tough girl, and I don't cry easily, until it comes to things related to Christ. That is when my defenses break down and the tears flow freely. Whenever this happens Cody just stares in awe. haha. I just can't help myself, it is just too close to my heart.

I also was intrigued by Elder Perry's talk, the ides of food storage and being prepared. It is something that has been weighing on not only my mind, but Cody's too. I heard that we should have a 90 day food supply by February. So I decided that all I want for Christmas is food storage (and maybe a new outfit). How dorky am I. Very.

Well, that is all for now. I would go on and into more detail, but I have to go to class.



Hi - I found your blog when I was googling food storage and yours came up since you mentioned it.

Anyway, if you need any help or ideas building your three-month supply, come on over to our blog! We have lots of ideas and food storage recipes that can help you out.

Good luck!

You can get a 3 month supply from the Lindon cannery shipped to your house for $25.95 (it's less if you pick it up there). It has beans, oats, rice and wheat etc. Also, you can "check out" the dry pack canner anytime but you have to bring it back the next day. Let me know and I'll come help.


I am proud to call myself a "conference nerd" too. Did you see the special on Pres. Monson's life in between sessions on Sat? I was literally sobbing while I folded laundry. It was the spiritual shot in the arm that I needed.
