the first weekend of october.

We filled our weekend with Chinese food, BYU football, General Conference, a girls night/Priesthood session, more General Conference, apple pie, and a game night with friends.  It was a great break!

Favorite one liners from conference:

"Through repentance, you can qualify for all the blessings of heaven."
Elder Quentin L. Cook

"They can be a heaven sent blessing to you."
Elder Russell M. Nelson, in regards to missionaries

"There's something in each day to cherish and rejoice in."
"Have we not reason to rejoice?"
"We cannot take for granted one single day."
Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf

"Lessons taught at home are becoming increasingly necessary."
Elder L. Tom Perry

"No trial is so large that we can't solve it together."
Elder Neil L. Anderson

"Thy will be done, and in thine own time."
President Henry B. Eyring

"We are surrounded by those who need our kindness, service, support, example, and love."
Sister Linda K. Burton, quoting President Thomas S. Monson

"Did you love me?"
"The crowning characteristic of love is loyalty."
"We have truths to share and good to give.  We can't quit and we can't go back."
"The call is to come, stay true, lend a hand, and love God."
Elder Jeffrey R. Holland

"The opportunity to be a blessing to another often comes unexpectedly."
"The Lord is in the details of our lives."
President Thomas S. Monson

(Insert cliche mormon picture of notes and apple pie :))


On an unrelated note, guys, I need more books to read.  I'm begging you to leave one book suggestion for me in the comments.  Anyone and everyone!



  1. Well "A Casual Vacancy," By J.K. Rowling recently came out. I haven't read it yet, but she did write Harry of course she has my recommendation. (P.S. I know book titles are supposed to be underlined, but you can't do that in your comment box...)

    I have a whole list of books, what sort of stories do you prefer?

    1. Thanks, Alix! Um... I'm not a big fan of sci fi, but besides that, I'm game for anything!

  2. Hmmm. Okay- so I haven't read it yet, but I have heard that "The happiness project" is really great. And I keep waiting to find the time to read it. Are you on Good Reads? I always find good books on there!
