Opportunities to do good.

We LOVE Mormon Messages. They are so inspiring and eye opening. What can I improve on to become a better disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ?

"There are chances for work all around just now,
Opportunities right in our way.
Do not let them pass by, saying, “Sometime I’ll try,”
But go and do something today.
’Tis noble of man to work and to give;
Love’s labor has merit alone.
Only he who does something helps others to live.
To God each good work will be known.

Then wake up and do something more
Than dream of your mansion above.
Doing good is a pleasure, a joy beyond measure,
A blessing of duty and love.

This makes me think, have I done any good in the world today? Have I helped anyone in need? What acts of service have I done? Challenge to myself: Serve someone! Make someone's day a little bit better! By serving others {and forgetting about yourself} you will also become happier. Who can you serve today?

Ok, Ok, I know I am terrible at this whole Blogging thing. I actually thought I was going to keep up with it. Then, school started, flu season came, and there has been ZERO time to blog. I've been having a hard time with taking pictures as well and I feel like a {Good} blog post needs pictures. Whats been going on with us? Well if you really want to know...
School started: Yes, this is no rumor. It is unfortunately true. Drew and I are both going to school this semester. I am taking a full load of credits and we are both working on campus. Drew works in Admissions and I am still working as an Academic Counselor on campus. BUT, we are lucky to have just about the same schedule. We go on campus at 7:30AM and get home at 5PM. Since Drew and I both have campus jobs, we dress nice professional everyday . Jeans or no longer in our wardrobe (except for weekends I guess).

He's a keeper!
 School is fine. Pretty much taking over our lives, but fine. I graduate in July and Drew will graduate the April after that. Graduation couldn't come soon enough {278 days}. WOO! 
Cameron's Birthday (and curtis): Happy 22nd Birthday to Cameron and Curtis (September 29th) {Yeah, I am that behind}. Because Cameron lives up here, I wanted to throw him a surprise birthday party. The problem with that is, their birthday was the Thursday before General Conference . People had already started to head out of town for the weekend. So it ended up being just a few people. We had TACOS for dinner and Lindsay made an Ice Cream cake. {delicious!}. It ended up being pretty fun! 

Mike and Brittany's Wedding! I don't have any pictures... But on Oct. 7th we (Me, Drew and Cameron) went down to Utah to see my cousin Mike be sealed for time and all {ETERNITY} to Brittany! I had never been inside the Salt Lake Temple! It was such a beautiful ceremony and they are a GORGEOUS couple! I am so excited to welcome Brittany to the family. I'm looking forward to getting to know her better. Congratulations Mike and Brittany Davis!
Tie Tying: Cool huh? Husband taught me how to tie a tie. For some reason, his looked a lot better than mine! Mine ended up being really FAT. I'm not sure how to fix that. I guess practice makes perfect.

Other than that, nothing too big has been happening. I got sick last week and then today Drew threw up a couple times, but we think he just had food poisoning. He is feeling better. School, work and spending time together are keeping us busy. I will put forth more of an effort to blog more OFTEN! Happy Happy Sunday!
