Home Sweet Home

So Last week I went home to Southern California. It was a much needed break! Not that my life is very hard right now, but I really need to go home for a while. It was so nice to be with my family and friends. It happened to be a very busy week. Everything happen to fall durning this past weekend! I was able to go to my friend Rebekah's wedding, my best friend Stephanie's Baby Shower, My oldest Brothers 30th Birthday Party, and My Sister Emily's son Ethans baby Blessing. It was a fast week! I went to An Angels game with My Dad and Mom and Sister. I went to the beach, and just hung out by the pool. It was fun because it was the 4th of July. We just hung out and watched fireworks. The only bad thing is we think that my Brother's Birthday cake from Costco got my whole family sick. I only had a very thin slice, and I felt sick but never threw up. But my Dad, my Mom, My brother Brent, My sister Emily, and Matt got so sick with the flu! It was horrible! Matt lost 6 pounds! I guess it was the diet you never wanted to go on. Everyone is better now, but it definitely sucked. Matt and I also went and saw the new Twilight movie. It was so good. So if you are wondering if you should see it, go see it! Now we are back in Nashville. I already miss my family and California, but I can't complain since I am going back in two weeks!

Well there have been many changes happening! The office in Minnesota was not doing as good as everyone wanted, so they decided to move us! It was funny because they were talking about moving, but I really didn't think it was going to happen. W had already bought tickets to fly to california for the 4th of july, so the thought of moving was stressful. Last friday we got the word that it was official! We were moving to Nashville, TN! And we were moving the next night pretty much! So we packed everything up. Friday night a huge storm hit Hopkins. It was crazy, there were Tornado warnings and it was practically flooding it was so bad. But we survived. The night day we finished packing everything up and got a moving. We spent the night outside of Navuoo. We decided that since it was on the way that we should stop and see Navuoo. Neither of us had been before. It was such a wonderful experience! We happened to be there on the Anniversary of Joseph Smiths (our church's first Prophet) death. It was so sad but also very cool to be at the same exact spot that Joseph Smith was murdered. It was a really testimony builder. The Early Saints went through so much for us. We walked down this path called the Trail of Hope. It has journey entries from some of the pioneers. It was very inspiring. I have little to complain about in my life compared the pain and suffering they went through. I am so glad we were able to stop and see some of the things in Navuoo. We made it so Tennessee. So humid! We unpacked and then I left for california! I am here now and having a blast with my family!
