State Fair

So tonight I went to the state fair with some friends from college. It was a ton of fun.

I went with Andrew (23) Josh (23?) and Jessica (19). We went on roller coasters, played games and Josh won me a hedgehog stuffed animal. It was great.

About an hour before we left, Andrew and Josh bought beers. Josh, trying to be friendly, offered me a sip when I said I had never drank before. I'm not going to lie, I thought about it. "One sip wouldn't hurt" and "I'm at the fair, I should let loose and have fun" ran through my head. I thought about it longer than I would like to say, but I did say no. He asked if I was sure and I shook my head. He was really cool about it.

After the fair we went out to eat at Chili's, where Josh ordered another beer. And offered me a drink again. Again, I thought about it. And then said no.

Remember who you are, no matter the situation. Even though I've been having a testimony low point, I remembered the promises I made at baptism and didn't drink. Stand as a witness "in all times, in all things, in all places." Even the state fair.

Conference!!! :)

I'm not going to lie, conference day is always a stressful day for me. Usually I don't have a place to go for at least one of the days and I end up sitting all sad and alone in the chapel. Conference usually isn't a great experience for me because of that.

But this conference the Sister Missionaries made sure to invite me to watch conference with them at the church :) it was really nice. When I got there the whole zone was there! It was so fun. Hearing all the missionaries sing during the hymns brought the spirit so strong. I feel so at home with the missionaries. Every convert has a "member family" that they go to. The missionaries have become my member family. :) they treat me like I'm one of them, just without the name tag. :)

It was funny- Allen 1st sisters got to go to Cheesecake Factory with some members and they brought back cheesecake for us (2 slices). We passed a couple forks around with the cheesecake and all had a couple bites. And we shared candy. 

I'm so grateful for the missionaries in my life :)

OH! Did you see President Durrant on the stand today??? WAY COOL!!!!! :) I totally look up to him. :)

Happy conference everyone :)
