The temple

I got to go to the LA Temple today for the first time! It was so marvelous to be there! I could not have pictured being any where else to feel the calmness and love that is in the temple.

My parents were married in the LA temple and so they were able to show me around and I got to see where everything is in there. It is so huge! I love the temple and the blessings that we receive from it. There is such a strong feeling when you are in there that is indescribable.

I got to surprise my grandma in the temple! See, they work at the temple for one week out of the year and this happened to be their week to be there. I got to see her and share special time with her in the temple. What a marvelous thing it is, to know that we are with our family's forever when we are sealed in the House of the Lord for time and all eternity! How thankful I am for a family that is active in the Church and parent's who have taught me the blessings of being close to the Savior.

Adventures on Ambien and other happenings

So, since my mom and my sister both take ambien, and I too have that darn genetic sleeping disorder that plagues my family, I decided to request a perscription from my doctor...
Also like my mom and my sister, I too do weird, funny and sometimes stupid stuff on ambien.
one night I bbq'd while on ambien, like around 11 o clock at night! I love bbq, and apparently I loved it even more on ambien. I started cooking stake shishkabobs earlier in the evening, hours after I was done, and after I had taken ambien, I decided to cook my chicken shishkabobs, I don't remember one bit of it! When I woke up, I noticed that the chicken shishkabob skewer was completely gone, I had eaten it all. I asked Michelle about it and apparently she told me I was so impressed with my own cooking that I tried really hard to have her eat some as well. I also told her "it was the most divine chicken I ever had" I don't really use words like 'divine' in every day vocab... also Michelle reports I was walking around like a drunk person! but regadless, ambien + bbq = fun! (I think I'm lucky I didn't burn the house down)!
