First, I sprained my ankle for the 6th time. I know that doesn't really constitute as fun, but it was a happening nonetheless. I just was walking down the stairs and twisted it and now it's all bruised and swollen. Yay for me! Brett and I were training for the Provo Halloween half marathon, so that was put on hold. We already paid for it though, so we are still going to do it! We shall survive, I promise you.
Rachel turned eighteen! That means she can go on a mission in a year according to the new age change. That's so strange to me. She's my little cuzzie-wuzzie!
Watch it here (you will not disappointed!)
My mommy, sister, and sister's boyf came in town this weekend to catch up and watch General Conference.
During the priesthood session of General Conference, the gals went out to Blue Lemon in Alpine, Utah. I got an arugula salad with strawberries and goat cheese and balsamic vinaigrette and I almost fell off my seat in pure bliss.
My favorite talk from General Conference was by Jeffrey R. Holland. He talked about the first great commandment: to love our Heavenly Father with all our being. It was a powerful message as Holland's messages always are. Watch it.
After the first Sunday session, we met family in Park City where my Aunt and Uncle have a timeshare. We loved walking around and exploring the little shops. We also loved snacking on smoked salmon and brie cheese while watching the second session of conference.
Other things that have happened:
-My article entitled "The Grammatical Innovations of E. E. Cummings' Poetry" was selected to be published in BYU's Linguistics Journal Schwa. I'm stoked. By the way, doesn't the article sound so intriguing? I bet you just want to get your hands on a copy and immediately gobble up all its analytical goodness. Oh the things I write for college.
-Brett and I are juicing everyday. We take out our handy dandy Champion juicer and put carrots, kale, celery, apples, oranges, cucumbers, lemon juice, etc. in there and mix until it's one acidic, potent swirl.
-My side and Brett's side are combining for Thanksgiving this year. We're very excited to have everyone we love all together for the holiday of thanks.
-I have four tests this week and eleven papers to critique. Not to mention my other homework. No social life for me till Saturday.
-My brain is melting, so I can't think of anything else. But, we've had some jolly times these past few weeks, I swear.
Have a great day!
