Despite the 6 inches of snow on Sunday morning this weekend was great as General Conference weekend usually always is. Here is the run down...

First day of 30 Strangers
A tandem bike ride with Sterling.
Borsch and an old film noir movie, The Big Sleep, with Joe and Jessica.

Grilled PB&J's and Raspberry Streusel Coffee Cake with tons of friends for the morning session.
Changed a tire and unloading the Loader with my brother Jerry.
A Super talk by Elder Dallin H. Oaks.
Bubbles and skipping down the road with a six year old for work... Awesome Job right!
Ice Cream Sundaes aka Frozen Yogurt with Jerry and Karen, got to keep up traditions!
A hug from my sister Heidi via Kristi! Thanks! :)
Lavish Birthday Bash 

Conference again!
Playing with my nieces and nephews and their cousins.
Dinner with the Stoddard's: a scrumptuous feast including Karen's grape salad, brussels sprouts, and banana nut cake YUM!
Fireside at the MTC by Vai Sikahema, former NFL star who played for BYU, St. Louis Cardinals, Philadelphia Eagles, and the Green Bay Packers and is now the Sports Director for NBC 10 in Philadelphia, and through that shares the gospel everyday over the news in the most creative ways! Listening to this devotional made me realize that the gospel can really be spread in any situation, in any career as long as we let that light shine and share it whenever someone is curious and whenever the time is right!
Ribs and Au gratin Potatoes with Matt and the Sikahema's

What Amazed me the most though was when I got up this morning Conference was already online ready for me to listen to! Technology is crazy and really an awesome tool we can use to share the gospel! 

Sorry hope I didn't bore you all to death...


  1. Wow Laura! FUN! I am glad that you had so much fun, and a little bit amazed at how much you have found going on ;). And I missed you this weekend. Love you lots and thanks for the advice on my blog. I wanted those pictures extra big because I loved the details in the pics, so maybe I will have to deal with them being off centered, but it is definitely time to dig up that other picture so that I can fix it (maybe with some help from a great sis in law?). haha. love you!

  2. Sounds fun....I am glad you are loving Utah and your new job! I can't wait to come see you! Love you lots!

    P.S. I love Karens grape salad!
