Things of Note

1) I painted our dining room table yesterday. I've been talking about it for the past 7 months, and yesterday, I up and did it. Cory wasn't too excited about it but...I've learned that you can't stop it if you're not awake for it. No pictures yet--its not quite ready. Fingers crossed I'll be getting some new chairs at the end of this month and I'll do a big reveal then :)

2) Cory took me out to dinner on Friday night. After driving a huge loop around town for about 30 minutes and passing multiple options, we decided to eat at a sushi place called Mr. Roboto. A place that is pretty much within walking distance of our front door. Nice. It was delicious.

3) I got a new calling at church today. Second Councillor in Relief Society. I'm nervous and excited. Can I really do this?? Cory thinks so. He says, "Now maybe you'll be too busy to paint all the things in our house." Don't count on it.

4) Have you ever cried in front of your boss at work? I hadn't until this week. It was a pretty bad day. Luckily I have an awesome boss. And my girl Freya works just down the hall so I was able to cry it out in her office too. Thank you! I wish I could promise that would be the last time but...I can't. 

5) Cory and I both love a good murder mystery. Castle, Bones, Lie to Me...all over it. We've started watching the crime documentary show "Wicked Attractions" on Netflix and now I'm pretty sure I'm never going to let my kids out of the house. Ever. But I can't look away.  

That pretty much sums out the past week. Bring on the month of love!

Good luck on the calling! I think you're gonna do great!! I'm just sad you wont be the service committee leader anymore :(

Hey! Cute heart/book picture at the end. I love the month of love.

Why were you crying? Is everything okay?

Also, how can I get motivated to paint? It is my WORST job. But I am planning on painting our piano this year . . .

Perfect for Relief Society! Nobody's gonna wonder why the RS meetings are suddenly well-attended if you are involved.
