King Sized Joy

I'm addicted to blogging. Recognizing is the first step.

We did it. We finally got ourselves a king-sized bed. More specifically a California King. And I am so excited. We decided to reward ourselves with our tax return. It should show up in the next couple of days. Woohoo! A king-sized bed doesn't mean less cuddling....it just means less elbowing in the middle of the night.

Our washer keeps going in and out on us, so we almost had to make another big purchase this weekend and buy a new washer and dryer, but Mike is amazing and fixed it again. I really don't want to have to buy a new one, but you have to have clean clothes. So we will pray that it keeps going.

Elder Bednar was in town last night. He gave a fireside for families and of course Mike and I attended. I have had a bit of a stigma against him since I once watched a broadcast of him and his wife while I attended the singles ward. He was just super boring. He isn't too boring during General Conference, so last night when we went to this fireside, I decided I was going to be very open and try to get rid of that stigma. And it worked. What a wonderfully entertaining person he is. It helps when he isn't in the General Conference setting, and he can be a little bit more personal. He just did an open format. People asked questions and he answered. Only men with such a spirit about them, like Elder Bednar, can be put on the spot and yet still give such insightful and knowledgeable answers. And you can just see his passion for the gospel on his face. What an amazing opportunity it was to have him speak to us.

3 days until Elton John and Billy Joel concert

  1. So happy you got your king bed...it's the best sleep you'll ever have! Our mattress sucks, so I don't get the best sleep out of it as possible. whatever. I have always liked Elder Bednar. I got to meet him on a church history tour at the Susquehanna River (sp?) and he did a Q&A session thing too. Looks like you have a lot to look forward to! I find it easier to go through life and make myself a better person when there is a deadline/or something to look forward to. Have a great week doll! :o)

  2. You will never go back to a queen bed. They are seriously the greatest thing ever!

  3. Oh no, I'm so sorry about your washer. If anything I thought it would be the dryer to go out first. But they are 8+ years old. I have no idea how old, so they probably are on their last leg. Hope they chug a little bit longer for ya. That's exciting about the bed. Lorie and Gary got a California King bed too! Must be the time of season. haha. Yea tax returns! It sucks that we had to use our tax returns for rent! oh well!

  4. WOOT WOOT! I can only imagine what luxurious nights of sleep you two have awaiting you!

    What a neat experience for you guys to be able to attend a fireside with Elder Bednar. The church leaders are amazing. They have so much resting on their shoulders, but they serve with so much faith and diligence! Glad you enjoyed his messages.

    83 days? Hooray! We need to get everyone together again this summer like we did before you and Mike left. We'll all bring our spouses for a big date night BBQ or something!
