The makings of good days

Yesterday was one of the best days of my life!

My friend Joseph Mohrman leaves on his Mission on September 8, 2010, to the Belgium Brussels/Netherlands Mission (Dutch just like Dave). He went through the temple back in June when I was in Iowa and I hadn't seen him since the beginning of June. I really missed seeing him around so yesterday we finally got to hang out. Well can you guess what we did??

We went to the Mt. Timpanogos Temple and did Baptisms and Confirmations for the dead. I will never forget it because one, it was at a temple I had never been to, two, I did a lot of baptisms (the most in a row for me), and three, Joseph did the Confirmations and the Baptisms! It was such a great experience to have my best friend .Baptize and Confirm me... and before his mission too! The whole thing was just really special. As we were walking out to get in the car he said that he had only done that one other time. I asked him who it was and he answered, "A stranger. You were the first friend I have done that too and that was really special."

After that we went to Cafe Rio. We both love Cafe Rio. He wouldn't let me pay for mine though. It was nice of him and I appreciated it. We went over by the Marriott Center where they have a grassy hill and ate over there. It was a blast to just sit and talk to him as well. There was not a single pause the whole day. I don't think I have laughed that hard or that much in a long time.

It just goes to show that Baptisms + Cafe Rio + Good company = One of the best days a girl can have.

Summer is a wonderful time full of wonderful weather and wonderful people to share the wonderful weather with right? I would say so, that's for sure.
This summer is a big deal for me. I am going on to BYU in the Fall and am moving out in exactly 49 days if you include today and the actual day I move into my apartment. I just found out like twenty minutes ago that I don't have to pay the tuition money that I thought I was going to have to pay. The total amount is not in the 1000's like I had thought, but only $567.00! Insane! I started to cry when I read that. I got an email saying that I had activity on my account so I checked it out and looked at the activity details and sure enough they finally added the free tuition I get for Mom being a BYU Employee.
Every summer I work with Ammon. That has been my main source of income for the last what four years? I tried to get a job last summer and no one called me for an interview. I didn't think that I was going to be able to get a job at all this summer, let alone on BYU Campus. I did though! I work at CONE (Creamery On Ninth East). I don't have many hours but what I do have I am very happy that I have it! I am getting more money in my pocket!
This summer for the first time I actually have a special some one. Yes, we have kissed, for all of those that are even wondering... of course we have, it has been 3 1/2 months since we have started dating. He is only 11 days younger than me but he has to wait until May to go on his Mission. August will be the last month that we will be dating because although he doesn't leave until May, I will be going to BYU and he will be going to SNOW College. I am so sad about that but I know that I want to make the goodbye fast. I don't want it to linger and go on forever like some people would. I just want to get it over with because I know it will be so much easier for both of us.
I was sick off and on the past two weeks. Aparently I had a mild case of the Stomach Flu. Dr. Valdez gave me the same medicine that Amy and Jen have used when they have been pregnant. Crazy huh?
Life has been so crazy but I am so excited to get on with it!
