Happy Easter!

Today was a goooooood day. That is all.

Just kidding. I just need to say that the past couple of days have been...

fattening.
Not really. I just feel really fat right now because my Easter feast was extraordinary. I still haven't been able to finish the strawberry shortcake that my mother made. It is so good. I can't really tell you, you have to try it. My family was gone for a few days while they went to the cabin and fixed all of the plumbing. I must say, it was great. I know that I should be lonely, but it was great to do my homework when I wanted to and hang out with people when I wanted to. I know that not every quarter in school will be like this. In fact, NO quarter will ever be like this because I will have to be working and doing LOTS of homework. But it was great while it lasted.

Easter church was really good. The talks were AAAmazing. I am so impressed by all of the speakers. I see so much potential in the singles ward. The problem is that I don't think many of them see it. I don't know how to fix that, but I guess that is not necessarily my job. To top that off, all of these friends that I haven't seen in a LONG time showed up. I was ecstatic. You have no idea. I probably looked crazy by the look on my face. Oh man. I was sooo happy. Anyways. Now I am trying to digest my food from dinner so that I can finish my dessert.

I hope we all remember the real meaning of Easter. It is hard to forget sometimes. The Atonement is the whole reason we are living. It is the only way we will be able to return to our Heavenly Father. Without it we would be lost and unhappy and not able to feel the peace.

I love the Gospel, I know the Church is true.

p.s. on a lighter note, I got a water bottle for Easter, did anybody else get anything fun?

Maren you sweet thing! I'm so happy that you blog-stalked me! It's great to see that you are doing well, and are you coming to BYU for school? I suuuuuure hope so, because it would be so much fun to catch up! You are adorable, and I'm glad to see that the Easter Bunny is still treating you well.
