sometimes we get free canucks tickets at work. friday was my first time going. i got decked out in appropriate fandom wear and put a crazy gleam in my eye because everyone knows that sports fans are nuts and i like to fit in. i picked up mireya on the corner of granville and *** and we made our way to rogers arena. we had a parking pass because we're totes cool like that. but first we totally parked in a player's spot by accident which wasn't as cool, but we didn't let that deter us.
pathways had 14 tickets and our own suite. it was pretty fun. we also beat the pans off of the flames so that was cool too. i don't know why it is always everyone's mission to get on the big screen. it was mireya's fondest wish and by the end of the night we finally got the attention of a camera guy so we had our brief moment of fame, most of the time mireya was fluttering her canucks scarf in my face though, haha. meanwhile connie was dancing disco like john travolta on speed in the background.
saturday i helped with the stake primary activity before the women's broadcast. i diced a lot of tomatoes and shredded a lot of lettuce, skipped with the girlies, and taught poor pinochio and before i knew it, it was time for taco salad, crumble and then the broadcast. i sat in a row that a lady was saving the whole row, but to be fair she was saving it with hymnbooks--something that is always in every row. i kind of laughed at her and kind of didn't move.... i'm socially awkward like that.
there were a lot of good talks. of course president U. gave a really good one.
today i wore my wrap around bird dress to church with my gold leaf earrings (thanks mom and dad!) to church and i looked good. i was getting sleepy by the end of sunday school and i thought about going home and skipping relief society. but then i thought about how i needed to go to choir and also if i left maybe i would miss something really great that i needed. so i stayed. and rs was about elder bednar's talk about carrying heavy loads. it was a good lesson and i'm glad i stayed. had some insights and inspirations. this last week was a doozy. oh. i got the job by the way. i'm the new manager. and anyways, it was a doozy and every day my exhaustion built to new levels until on thursday night i just started crying for no reason. well there was a reason. sheer exhaustion.
anyways in august i went to seattle to hang downtown for a couple of days with my bestestbud. here's a few phone pics of our fun times.
me as a jar head. fun right? i enjoy my eyes at the very top.
i ate a duck here. and i was not disappointed.
selfies at the umbrella store...
ok...there was this ice cream/cup cake place that fats told me about. i made her take me there. and i was not disappointed. gourmet flavours. i think i pretty much got salted caramel cupcake ice cream... and there was also a really good one called hazelnut brittle with salted ganache... it was a lovely place.
ice cream makes me happy...here i look a little dopey.
