things that made me happy this week . . .

- general conference. there were a lot of amazing messages. i prayed the week leading up to conference that i would be open to any messages and inspiration the Lord meant for me to receive, and i got an abundance. i can't wait until the conference ensign comes out. me and my highlighter are ready!

- test #1 and paper #1 are done. i've never felt so unstressed when writing a paper. i literally wrote it in spare minutes here and there the two days before it was due. 

- we watched amazing grace in class after the test. it is such a great movie. i'm inspired every time i watch it. if you haven't seen it, see it now! the teacher lectured before and after the movie for a few minutes, putting it in context, explaining what it was about, and how it related to our reading. after the movie the teacher asked if anyone had any questions, and a kid asked if it was a true story . . . really? i don't know how teachers keep their composure sometimes. 

- apple cider pancakes. i used this recipe (without the walnuts). these will definitely be making it on the table during my upcoming weekend in tahoe.

- home made creme brulee and whipped cream. sunday night was delicious at our house.

- letting go of little things here and there that clutter up your life and take your time away from better things.
