Well friends, family... I wanted to share with you 2 really fun things I've done lately! Coincidently, I have done them both with the MGs, but anyway...
1) Last weekend, I saw the Emma Smith Movie! It was sooooo amazing! I am continually amazed by the strength of the pioneers-- especially Emma and Joseph Smith! At one point, I found myself crying (big surprise... not) just feeling a tiny twinge of all of the pain she endured. It was a really uplifting movie and one I recommend to all!
I just remembered one of the funny stories I forgot from my previous post. While at the movies to see the Emma Smith movie, I was walking past one of those cardboard stand-ups for the movie "Prom Night." It's a horror movie. Anyway, it showed happy prom people standing on either side of these openable doors. So what do i do? I decide to open the doors. Bad choice. This stupid 13-yr-old-looking-girl was hiding in these doors and jumped out at me. Needless to say, I screamed really loud. Then her gigantic group of middle-school friends started laughing at me. Which caused a ripple effect through the entire hallway (and this place was HUGE!). I almost cried.. kind of.
2. Ok, second fun thing! Last night, I headed up to the Scrapbook USA expo in Jordan, or sandy.. or somewhere. It was HUGE! There were scrapbookers EVERYWHERE! We arrived around 8:00 pm and didn't leave until midnight! I got a ton of dirt-cheap little things for the mission scrapbook I'm making for Jed's coming home present! I don't know why, but it was honestly one of the funnest things I've done here in UT. lame, i know.
They had this really annoying radio guy talking the whole time on a loud speaker. He announced a competition for the most Unique Group. Hello! We were there as MG's... an INTERNATIONAL group of girls who are waiting for missionaries. Well, the contest was originally for the most uniquely dressed group, but we kept screaming and convincing the judges that we should win. So they decided to make up another category for the group with the most unique purpose. He kept looking at us, but then totally betrayed us by giving it to a group of three ladies who claimed to all share the same husband-- polygamists. Hello! That's ILLEGAL! We even have our own website-- like 3 of them! It was a huge let-down to a good night. We won in my book, though!
