This is not going to be the week. The stake presidency messed with it a bit, got delayed. So, maybe next week. I guess I wasted my day yesterday siting in front of the window waiting for the mail.

I Hope They Call Me On A Mission

Well, if you didn't know, I have been working to submit Mission papers. Tonight I finished the final step by having an interview with a member of the Stake Presidency. It was the most wonderful interview I have ever had. He surprised me when he said he would fill in his remaining info that very night, directly after we finished. This means Headquarters would have my information tomorrow morning. He said when they have all the material by Tuesday night (and they would) that a Mission Call is usually issued that very week! SOO.....

My assignment could be issued in 2 days!

And I would receive it in the mail by next week!


So, here is my map.
My close friends and family are invited to make guesses as to where I will go. There is a state-side guess, and a world-wide wide guess. Feel free to make guesses and let me know.

Valentines Day

Happy Belated Valentines! Here are some pictures of the happening in CD 15.

Flowers for the Cottam Girls (as arranged by Sis. Cottom's personal florist) (me)
Lauren snuck into my room and decorated it all up. She's too good to me. I don't know why she's so nice. Any of you who knew our bickering ways as children should wonder why she likes me at all.
Then Ashlee made us pink heart pancakes for breakfast!


There is currently an Indexing Challenge for our ward. With my roommate Ashlee heading it up, we have taken it very seriously. Our apartment leads the ward with names.
As of Sunday, the entire ward had done almost 9,000 names.
The ward with the next highest numbers had only 2,600.
This stake wide ranking of Indexers might explain things...

Introducing CD15

Last night our apartment introduced themselves at ward prayer. I have been working on this video since APRIL! adding bits and pieces here and there. I had a couple melt downs in the process (most of them yesterday when everything fell apart a couple hours before our presentation). But it all came together in the end. I hope you enjoy it!
