Here's the recap since April 27 (my birthday): I drew pictures all of that afternoon with my brother, my roommate, and my sweet boyfriend. We ate a beef roast dinner and it was delicious! My parents gave me an envelope with my present inside. They bought me a super fancy scripture case for my mission that can hold waaaaaaaaaay more than scriptures!!! Oh boy will I need that! I'm excited for it to get here so I can play with it and see what all it does. Anyways, then we all went downstairs and watched my baby videos. Since my mom loved to take videos of me in the bathtub when I was little, I was trying to get my dad to fast forward the movie so my man wouldn't see..... but then on the video, my dad said "This movie will embarrass you on your 19th birthday!" We all busted out laughing!!! How on earth did we manage to get such a coincidence??!! Who would've thought that I would be watching baby movies on my 19th birthday sitting next to my boyfriend!!!! Surely not my father! Haha! It was so funny!
I don't remember doing anything on Monday....... yup. Nothing interesting happened at all.
But today was Tuesday, and it was a fantastic day! I got out of bed and I got ready for my day. Then I met the sister missionaries in town and I went with them to teach their investigators!! It was sooo soooooooo cool! We taught two older men and they were really friendly and they were very receptive to the Spirit and would often comment on our testimonies. I have much to learn, but I am so eager to go! I'm chomping at the bit to get out to the mission field and teach!
When I got home, I took my roommate into town and we just hung out and ate a cheeseburger (I've been wanting one for two weeks!!). I really enjoyed being with her. She's a fantastic roommate. So afterwards, we went home and basked in the sunlight in my front yard. It was nice and it was fantastically warm. Then we made dinner and sent my sister off to go to the temple with her mutual group. My sweetheart got off work and came to spend some time at my house with me. I also got to finish my visiting teaching for the month. It was fantastic! After that, we all went for a walk and I got to hold hands with my honey and skip down the road. I love him so much! When we got back to the house, I had to go to my interview with my stake president for my missionary recommendation...... AND HE SUBMITTED MY PAPERS!!!!!!!! So I should be getting my mission call in the next week to two weeks.
When I got home from my interview, I talked with my mom for a good hour and a half about everything that's been going on. She's the best listener in the world! I'm going to miss her while I'm on my mission. A lot. But after that, my roommate decided she wanted to convince me to watch, "Woman in Black." Uh yeah.......... never again. That stupid movie scared the crap out of me! Now I kinda want to turn on all the lights in my room and never fall asleep. BAAAAAD idea!! I have no idea how she convinced me to watch it. Silly me. So now I'm going to somewhat attempt not to have nightmares. But it's soooooo her fault if I do.
