A Good One

I skipped my first school day on Saturday! Such a rebel! Ok... so I didn't really skip. That would have gotten me in a lot of trouble. But I didn't go... with their permission. Still counts... Oh my, it felt so good to have an extra day to my weekend. SO needed!


Most of my weekend was spent watching General Conference. Which was incredible. I always hate when conference ends. It's that same feeling you get when you finish a great book or the day after Christmas. You loved it and you wish you could rewind and do it all over again. (luckily I can actually rewatch it. But that's beside the point.)

Here's what I did when I wasn't watching conference...


1. I ate dinner outside the other day. It was such a beautiful day. And even though I sat on the ground in my tiny back patio, it was nice to have some fresh air and feel the cool breeze.
2. My sister sent me that journal and I love it. I'm using it only for my best reflections. The ones I actually want to remember. Not the ones I'll be embarrassed about later.
3. I was able to meet Ashley, Bella, and their friends the other day! AH! They are even better in person!
4. There was a GIANT box of strawberries that my roommate and I split the cost of. (I thought it was a great deal, but just in case it wasn't, I won't tell you what it cost.) We have great plans for those strawberries.
5. I miss living with a great view. This would be a good one.
6. And THIS is how I spent the majority of my weekend... on the couch. Yup. I'm lazy. Really, you can just ignore this last picture...

I had never heard of general conference until I started reading blogs.

We had some strawberries not that long ago and they were amazing--nothing says summer like fresh strawberries.

That sounds like the perfect day. I love that journal. Did your sister make it?

yayyyyyyyyyyy! I need to email you the pictures i took but honestly, it might be a few more days. I am literally spending morning to NIGHT working on a place to live, furniture rental, where we can BUY more furniture we need, etc, etc, etc. It is exhausting. I haven't even had time to read emails or go onto my blog. eek.

loved loved loved meeting you again! You are awesome, and I can't wait to tell everyone about it!

xo,

Couch living is the best kind of living. Add a bag of miniature Hershey's chocolates and its considered a party!

Weekends on the couch are my favorite! Sometimes, they are so needed.

I remember when I was in esto. school how exhausting it was. I went to an Aveda Institute and had three 10 hour days a week: thurs, fri, sat. Since then, I CHERISH my saturdays!

Wasnt GC awesome? I love those kind of weekends! That journal is adorable, do you know where she got it? And pretty excited to see what you can do with a huge box of strawberries!

What a good weekend! :] Any weekend where you get to hear the prophets and apostles speak is bound to be good though! And I want to know how much the strawberries cost! Haha. But I know the feeling of telling someone about your good deal and having them tell you it's not! Haha. It's a bit of a let down! I buy strawberries and raspberries no matter the price these days! :]

Amber said...

mmmm, those strawberries look scrumptious.

YAY!!! I'm glad you were able to skip for general conference! I couldn't get work off for it, but sunday was amazing :)

Kelley Spurlock said...

Girl, no shame, couch weekends are some of the best weekends. Snacks, tea, a good movie/show-- you're set for life... or the weekend. I just got some strawberries too! They are scrumptious. I feel like they fit this spring weather perfectly! So glad that you got a day off to relax girly!

I love these kinds of posts of yours : ]
And hey, at least your "skipping" was used wisely. When I used to ditch it would be to catch up on homework or watch Tv. No bueno!

I just love conference weekend. Not only is it wonderful to hear all the talks, but I think it's refreshing to be able to stay home and not worry about church responsibilities. Thanks for sharing!

My Mom was telling me to watch general conference through lds.org, but I never got the chance, she said it was a good one. See, I grew up Mormon, but am no longer a practicing Mormon for about 15 years now (just the path I decided to choose, and AHHH I'm old). But I have no ill feelings about the church and still go from time to time with my Mom if she bugs me hard enough when I'm in town lol ;) Your post made me a little nostalgic about my childhood Sundays and made me miss my Mom :) Thanks for sharing. Oh, and btw, I've come to realize there is an insane amount of Mormon bloggers!
