Happy Halloween!!!

This week has been abosolutely delightful and harmful to my bank account. I have enjoyed my time off from school. I have relaxed, had sleepovers with my sisters, went to lunch with Hannah at Sweet Tomatoes (One of the places to eat because you can stuff yourself and not feel guilty because it is all salad.) And I went on a major shopping spree. But I justify it with a couple of very good reasons:

1. It is the first one I have gone in over a year. Last year I avoided major shopping because I was in school and unemployed. And then I was living in the backwoods of Maine and I didn't care a bit about what I was wearing as long as it was warm. Any cute clothes were lost underneath of at least 2 other layers.

2. Everything I bought was five dollars or less. I scored big time. I found racks and racks of cute clothes marked down to five dollars. Originally $30 or more. It was fun.

This Week...

This week was a full and fun week. Grandma cooked dinner on Monday. Aka Cracker Barrell. On Tuesday we went to Red Robbins for Katie's (my roommate) birthday. And on Thursday the girls went to the Spa at Gardner Village and got massages. Heavenly!!! I found myself a new hobby. Definitely something that I will have to splurge on every now and then.

At school, "my teacher" has been gone for few days. So I have been the teacher. And that has been fun. I like teaching and I think I would like being a teacher if I could have all the lesson plans and other paper work done for me.

This next week there is no school Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday. Yippee. Now what am I going to do with myself. All my friends are working or in school. Don't worry. I am sure I will find a few things to fill my time.

It looks a little sketchy, but it has a fun name.

On Saturday we had a birthday party for Grandpa who turned 80. Who know how many of us he remembered. But he knew we were related somehow and that we loved him. I'll post pictures as soon as we get them from my uncle.
Other things in life are going well. Nothing too exciting has happened. But nothing bad has happened either. I still enjoy my job. I'm busy putting together a course guide for the leadership development class I'll be starting soon.

Happiness is...

I have been in the greatest mood ever for the last two weeks. I am just happy. I've been smiling just because, I haven't been able to stop smiling. This past weekend was especially good because of Conference. It definitely added to my joy. Even a random bizarre phone call from my ex-boyfriend couldn't ruin my happiness. It was the greatest.
Where does this happiness come from you may ask...The only thing I have been doing is emerging myself in the gospel and good things. I've been attending up to three institute classes a week, attending the temple weekly. And trying to do every possible good think I can. And its been paying off because I am HAPPY.

Sunday, October 7, 2007's just fun to say.

So friends and family have been encouraging to start a blog. And now what to write. I am trying to figure how to get it to look like I want.

A few hours later...
After a few hours and some sweat and blood it is ready to go. And I must say I am quite pleased with it. Now lets just see if anyone else will look at it. I will try to get some more interesting things on here. I don't want it to be just me rambling away. Although that will probably be a lot of it. I like to ramble. I guess I have to be true my title and have some good fortune on here too. Anyways it up and good to go for now.
