i have a whole list of people and things that make me feel that way, including but not limited to (and in alphabetical order so no one thinks i'm playing favorites)
general conference on my ipod
rocky mountain chocolate factory
second, adopted family
wii resort three point basketball contest
my ideal living situation would be all of those things, all conveniently located five minutes from each other, with a temple in the middle. maybe some apple trees and orange trees and a target thrown in...
three things i could have done without this weekend:
the creepy guy at the gas station who told me he liked my toes
the spider on the chair

i'm so excited i am starting you a little earlier than anticipated. however, let's try to keep gas prices as low as possible, shall we?
please open your airports soon. i miss my brother.
dear mensa puzzles,
i like it when you are easy, word type puzzles, so i feel smart. enough with the hard math problems. my brain does not function that way.
dear march madness,
oh, how i've missed you. thanks for keeping the madness at a nice level - enough to be exciting, but not so much that my bracket is a total loss. i'd like to keep my final four teams going strong. and be kind to jimmer, or else...
i love you.

he started off telling me about how some of the plants died, but he took them back to the nursery and they replaced them. then he told me about his plantations back in india, and how his family grows coconuts and mangoes and rubber. then he told me how much he paid for their old house, and how much he paid for the new one they live in now.
then, we got to the juicy stuff. he started telling me that kids in america have too much freedom, with their cars and their cell phones and whatever else. his kids won't get that much freedom. women today have too many options and too many opportunities - they go out and marry sleazeballs and have kids and then get divorced and then do it all over again.
so, arranged marriages are the answer! he will find some people with a son for his daughter and talk to them before the kids even meet, and then they'll get married and he will monitor them and make sure his daughter is being taken care of or else (he'll beat him up? i don't know...) but that won't happen if his girl is interested in other boys, so he'll make sure she's not doing anything scandalous (like dating...)
and you are all welcome for the enlightenment. i guess i've been doing things all wrong...

no big deal, just this quilt i'm making.
after that, i saw this sunset
went to dinner and a movie, practiced the piano in there somewhere, listened to pandora. and drove around with the windows down in the 80 degree weather. pretty awesome day.

- fake nephew #2's fantastic 1st birthday party, including an amazing cake of which i did not get a picture
- jazz/suns game with staci that i already posted about. but that conversation still makes me laugh
- babysitting fake nephew's #1 and 2, which included another funny conversation.
scott (who was a little sick): "jenna, this soup is so delicious. it feels me so better!"
me: i actually don't think i said anything, but i did laugh at him. he's cute
- forgetting about having to teach relief society until the day before
-a day off work, spent at the suites cutting out quilt pieces- jimmer and the other byu's beating san diego state, again! which i did not get to watch, because we had no tv, because...
- we got new carpet. and my room is super clean and organized. everyone better come see it quick
- one week of no soda!
- lunch with jessi and her mom, during which i did one of the most embarrassing things i have ever done. i'm ashamed. maybe i'll tell you about it someday...
- yesterday, this crossed my path. it must be good luck
this is a toad. sorry about the picture quality - it was dark and i was using my phone. after taking this picture, i picked up the toad and moved it to a safer place. i videoed that, but no one is allowed to watch it with the sound on because i sound like an idiot.
