This weekend was a crazy one for me.
Saturday morning my little sister picked me up and we left for Idaho for our cousin's wedding. We had a good drive and arrived in Idaho Falls shortly before the luncheon. The company was awesome and the food was good. Some of the cousins that were there I hadn't seen since my wedding reception (almost two years ago). So, it was good to spend time with all of them and let them know I still love them even though I live far away and can't come to all of the family events. Randy and Christie looked great, and I'm so happy for them. Unfortunately, I don't know Christie, but I hope to get to know her before too long. Congrats, guys! After the luncheon we went shopping (got 2 pairs of shoes for $10 bucks!! ...thanks Mom) and had a good time. Off to the reception then (everything was decorated beautifully - especially the cake that my mom made) and before too long we left for SLC. Good times.
I spent the night at my mom's house because Sunday was the farewell of my best friend. She did a great job speaking in her ward, and there were a lot of her friends there to support her. I'm so proud of her decision to serve a mission and I know that she will be an amazing missionary. (And if you know of any deaf people in Portland who want to hear about the Gospel of Jesus Christ, let me know so I can refer them to her.) While she is gone, I will be living her Facebook life for her and posting her letters home onto her blog so that everyone can keep tabs on her. I love you, girl! I'm going to miss you!
