So, I was so happy that things are turning green and the weather has been so nice and then this last weekend came! I was not a fan of how cold and rainy it was but I guess I am thankful for the moisture. I feel super bad for my friend Nancy because it was her wedding reception on Saturday and it was supposed to be outside. It turned out wonderful anyway even though they had to move it indoors. Let see what else can I talk about....I was freaking out about my crappy work schedule for next month but thankfully someone picked up the trip I had that went over the time we are going to be in Malaysia so Im super happy about that. I bought my first pair of Chacos today (awesome hiking sandals) and I am excited about them. I have wanted some for like 5 years now and I finally got the guts to spend that much on sandals. My excuse: going to Malaysia for two weeks and needed good shoes to hike around in! We are flying out on May 24th and are really getting excited about it. Kurtis and I are going to try to fit all of the things we pack in our carry-on bags to avoid checking any bags. We will see how that works...I have my doubts for two weeks in a foreign country. Especially when we have the lovely underwear that takes up so much room. :) Flying stand-by and checked luggage doesn't really go along though so hopefully we will be able to fit everything in our carry-ons! So, thats about it with us for now anyway....

So, there really isn't too much going on in our lives. Nothing really blog worthy but I was told by a good friend or rather threatened that if I didn't update my blog she would be forced to shun me. Of course I don't want that to happen so here I am writing about nothing really. I am really excited for conference this weekend. It seems the older I get the more I count down the days till conference. I love to hear what the leaders of the church have to say to us and things I can take from their talks and improve on. I always need a good kick in the butt for what I need to do better. Next weekend Kurtis and I are going to St. George for the weekend for Nancy and Danny's wedding! That will be really fun and hopefully the weather will be nice and we can get out of freaking winter weather! Probably the biggest news for us is Kurtis and I are going to Malaysia at the end of May. My aunt and uncle are living there right now so we are tagging along with my parents and heading over there. It will take place of our Costa Rica trip we were planning for our 1st anniversary. We figured going to Malaysia and being able to stay with and be taken around by people we know who are living there is probably pretty rare so we couldn't pass it up! Hopefully everything works out okay with the flights and things since this will be our first time going foreign on stand by. If everything goes well we should get first class the whole way! Yay! Well, thats about it for us. Im sure I will write after this weekend all about my favorite parts of conference.
