Called to Serve..... in Young Womens!

So I was called as the Young Womens advisor for our ward. I am absolutely thrilled! I am very excited to get to work with the youth and fufill a part of my patriarichal (sp?) blessing. Apparently, I am the only advisor in the ward- I am looking forward to learning all about Young Womens- given the fact that I joined the church after I would have been able to be a part of the program. I went to Young Women in Excellence tonight and all I can say is WOW! This is really where the Lord wants me to be. It feels so right!

The dark side....

With fall here and winter fast approaching, I decided to do something drastic and change my hair color. This time I let Dennis pick the color and my good friend Lindsey worked her magic. This is what she came up with. She is brillant!

I have decided that I need to do more things like sewing, gardening, and crafting. So a few weekends ago not only was I crafty in creating a "family board" at Enrichment night but I managed to plant some tulip bulbs in our front walk way and I will be starting on sewing a blanket this week. I promised myself that I would start scrapbooking before the end of the year- not sure if that's a good idea for the busy holiday season but I am daring!

I did it!!!!

I finally read an entire book! I was in the midst of reading like 5 different books and I finally finished one. I think I was able to do it because I find the topic very interesteing right now. This book, Secret Thoughts of an Adoptive Mother is amazing! I really enjoyed reading it and it made alot of sense. Now if I could only finish Accepting Joy & Wednesday Letters.........

Plesant Surprise

I came home from work on Tuesday to a painted guest bathroom!! I was planning to spend my Saturday at home painting it but since Dennis was home all day he decided to surprise me and give me my Saturday. He said he didn't want me to have to spend my day off painting when he could do it while I was at work! He earned some extra brownie points. Now its on to the kitchen... or maybe I will make him do it while I am at work!
