happy > grumpy

I am so grumpy right now. Everything (and everyone but Mark) is bothering me; I even said my personal prayer before I got out of bed this morning (yeah, that's hard for me to do sometimes--no one's perfect, right?), so who knows what my deal is. Because of this bad attitude, I'm going to do what every young woman leader has taught me to do and list what I'm grateful for!
  • My sexy, hot, hairy, fun, loving, selfless, goofy husband. I didn't get home until 12:45 last night from Michelle Roberts' birthday bash and boy...I missed him!!! As soon as I came through the door, I ran to him and gave him a big bear hug and told him about my night. He was so cute as expressed how happy he was that I got to see my friends! I got ready for bed, hopped in, and we cuddled all night. It was definitely a *butterflies-in-my-stomach* moment.
  • Friends. Last night I got to see some girl friends that I hadn't seen in awhile, namely Michelle (Davis-Roberts), Mio (don't need to put her last name here, haha), the new Mrs. Jen Graham (formerly Draper), and the new Mrs. Kaylee Heinz. We played Catch Phrase. I forgot how much I love that game! I even got to have chocolate fondue.......yummy! Thanks for having a birthday Michelle! It was a great excuse to get together.
  • The gym. My good friend Charlotte called me on Monday to go to a kickboxing class and so-called "rescued" me (she picked me up) from watching TV the rest of the afternoon!!!! I'm such a lazy bum lately when I'm not working at school!!!! Char, me, and Julianne had a fun time at Zumba on Friday too.....*call me Jules, I wanna see you move again! ;)
  • Chocolate and butter. Wow, I have had awful withdrawals from these two food items lately (haven't had time/a car to go grocery shopping...but I wish I could say I was trying a new health-kick!). Remember that post on me being a chocoholic?? It's real people. Very real! A couple of days ago I couldn't think until I had some kind of chocolate in me. What is a girl to do when she is stuck at home with no car and doesn't have any butter or chocolate chips?? SUFFER! I even looked up "butter-less cookies." Yeah, uh, I didn't lower myself to that level.  
  • Softball. K are you ready for this?! Mark and I joined a softball rec. team. Oh my gosh, it is so funny. Can you imagine me playing a sport with a ball?! We went out and practiced for a couple of hours between Conference on Saturday-- I'm going to have to post a picture of the awesome bruise I have on my forearm from missing a ball with my glove and stopping it with my forearm instead. We're on it with a bunch of couples in our ward. Games start next Friday, every Friday from then until the end of June.
  • BYU devotionals. I listened to the last BYU devotional of my college career yesterday! It was really great to hear this guy (forgot the name) speak about BYU-TV and how technology is helping us in our efforts to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ across the earth. He quoted a few apostles from the recent General Conference, like Elder Nelson and M. Russell Ballard. I wish I would have written down all the scripture references he used, but it was awesome to see how BYU and the LDS church in particular have stayed up with technology, and to realize how unbelievable it must have sounded to those few saints in New York when Joseph Smith prophesied that His (Christ's) word would be proclaimed across the corners of the world. Soo cool!! I wish I would have gone to more of the devotionals while in college. 
  • Conference, of course. What a cool weekend of getting advice and counsel from these amazing men and women! I can't wait to study the Ensign when they come out. It's easier for me to pay attention when the words are in front of me. I thought it was fun to see that the main theme for Saturday's conference was on parenting and how parents have a major responsibility to make our homes sanctuaries and places of learning and righteousness for our children. The expectations are high! But the counsel was awesome. Sunday seemed to be more on marriage (for those slackers out there) and service. Parenting and service. Hmm...those go hand in hand completely! My parents are great examples of serving me and my siblings. They probably do too much!! Of course they don't think so. 
Okay I'm feeling much better. I have FOUR MORE DAYS LEFT of classes, I'm flying to Boston in a week, I only have 3 finals, I'm going with a good friend through the temple for her first time; me, Mark, and his dad & stepmom are going to Rio de Janeiro and to his mission in Fortaleza, Brazil for 9 days in July; trips to San Francisco (I've never been), Newport Beach, and Island Park all this summer. There is a lot to look forward to! Have a wonderful Wednesday!
