Just for Me, Part 2

How cool is this?!

Just for Me

I'm posting this to help me remember I want to add that to my calendar routine at school. This guy is awesome, I've got so many new ideas from him that my brain is on overload and need a place to store my thoughts tonight so I don't forget. Hence, the blog..

I'm extremely touched and in quiet reverence tonight after watching this. I needed this reminder today. I love my Savior. He is my rock and my foundation. I'm grateful that I have chosen to follow Him. My life is filled with peace because of Him.

To Kansas or Bust?

My dearest friend, Jenna Ann, took on a position at Washburn University last August in Topeka, Kansas, as a professor in Psychology. She came back to Utah during her spring break to visit, and I decided to drive back to Kansas with her so that she wouldn't be alone on the 16 hour car drive, and so I could also see where she is now living and working.

We split the drive into two days to make it not as long. The first night we stopped in the middle of nowhere Nebraska (Ogallala I believe?) and then made it to Topeka the second day. You would think that a 16 hour car drive sounds miserable and horrible and awful...but it was the exact opposite! I tell you what, if you're going to do a long road trip, there's no one better to do it with then Jenna Ann Glover! We talked for hours, sang lots of our favorite songs and laughed and cried hysterically. I will treasure that time with her for a long time to come.

She had to work while I was there, so it was nice to have some time to myself to sleep in, read, watch shows, etc...things that I NEVER get to do with working full time and going to grad school part time. At night, when she would come home, we would go explore the city. We ate at a few yummy restaurants, including the famous Oklahoma Joe's in Kansas City (about an hour from where she lives). The Brown vs. Board of Education case happened in Topeka and there is a museum there in honor of it, in an old elementary school. Being that I'm a teacher, Jenna knew I would love to see it. It was awesome! I was also able to see the University that she works at. I'm so proud of Jenna, and how hard she has worked to make it this far. I always leave her feeling like I am a better person and that to me is a true friend!

This was basically all I saw on the drive to Kansas...

Brown vs. Board of Education

Isn't she adorable?!
