Ok all. Here's the deal. I'm speaking in Sacrament meeting this Sunday, May 10th, Mother's Day, at 1:00 in the Tropicana Ward in the Tropicana Chapel. I realize that Mothers day is a tough day to take time away from family, but think of it this way; if both you and your Mother live in Vegas, you'll see them fairly often. This is the last chance you'll get to see me... so, in my opinion, your mothers can spare you for a few hours. Just be sure to get her a really good present and tell her you love her very much and all should be forgiven. There will be an openhouse hooplah at my house starting at 6:30 pm. Delicious desserts will be there. All are welcome (preferably if I know you) to stop by. If you have any questions or need directions, comment below and I'll answer as quickly as I can.
Soon to be Sister Hastings.

I am lazy

ok, so because I don't want to spend forever typing what we did all weekend, I'll just upload pictures and maybe the story will come later.

S'pose I might as well...

So, once upon a time, I did something weird on facebook and now everything from this blog is automatically transferred to my notes there. I couldn't tell you how I did it, even though I consider myself fairly computer savey. I suppose some poking around wouldn't hurt, but I don't really care enough to try. Anyways, I tell you this because even though there are only 4 comments on the last post, someone commented on this from facebook, thus I have my 5. Congrats to Hannah Belanger, Pookie the Pookstar England, Angie Larkin, Loralee Warner, and Beth Garrard. I think I know what I'm going to make, I just have to go get supplies. Here's a hint... Pookie will get something completely different because he's a boy. Anyways... nothing too exciting is happening up here in Provo... School is tedious and I just want to get out of here. 49 days to go...

Pay attention kids!

Here is the deal: The first five people to comment on this post will get something made by me.
My choice.
For you.
This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
1- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make.
2- What I make will be just for you.
3- It'll be done this year.
4- You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be a story. It may be photography, I may sew or paint or bake something. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure!
5- I reserve the right to do something extremely creative.

The catch? Oh, the catch is that you must re-post this on your own blog and offer the same deal to 5 of your own lucky blog readers. So, the first 5 people to leave a comment telling me they are in, win a FAB-U-LOUS homemade gift by me! Oh, and be sure to post a picture of what you win when you get it.

I got this from a friend of a friend, Ana Lee. I was number three to comment on her blog so, I should be good for something extremely creative!

And the winner is...

So, I suppose it might be helpful to finally let y'all know that I'll be serving in the Houston Texas Mission, Spanish speaking. I'll report to the MTC on May 13th. I'm totally psyched. Today, we went to get my first El Libro De Mormon and my Temple Dress. As soon as I get my recommend, (which will hopefully be very soon) I'll be taking a little road trip down to Vegas to take out my endowments.

The only thing left then would be to announce the winners. The Grand Poo-bah winner of them all would have to be Scott Haynie who guessed "Southern Texas Spanish Speaking"... can't get much closer than that. Silver and Bronze go to Nathan Robinson and Laura Cutler who guessed "El Paso, Texas" and "Texas" respectively. So guys, come claim your prizes; any candy, cookie, brownie, baked-good of your choice... just let me know and I'll get on it. (If there's a specific recipe you're looking for, you'll have to forward that along too, or I can look it up on the internet or something.) I'm too tired to update on much else, but if there's any questions, just comment them and I'll let you know!

Dude... seriously, if you want in on the baked goods action, you'd best be making your last minute guesses now. Any guesses made after 8:30 (Mountain Standard Time) will not be accepted in the raffle. K, If you live in Utah County and would like to come, I'll be opening it tonight, THURSDAY at 8:30 pm in the game room at Roman Garden Apartments. The address is 1060 E. 450 N. Provo, 84606

Guess Where?

So my paperwork is officially in SLC. I met with my stake president on Sunday (which was good, but intense) and he basically said I’m good to go. It was a long interview too, probably about half an hour. He said there might be a slight hiccup with the mission department because of something on my medical history, so we talked about getting a letter from my doctor, just to say that I’m perfectly fine to go wherever and do whatever.
On Monday morning, I got a call from my Stake President saying that as he was entering the information from my paperwork into the computer, he read what my Bishop had said and thought about what I had said and decided that he was going to send the information in as it is. He said that I should still go ahead and try to get the letter from my doctor so that if Salt Lake needed more information that we could then send the letter in whenever I got it, but why wait if we don’t need to type of a thing. He’s going to be released in 2 weeks (he said I’m his last missionary) and wants to push this through as quickly as possible. SO, this is where I am in the whole process. I’m at the delightful stage of waiting without being able to do anything about it.
To pass the time of boredom and complete lack of anything interesting to do, I’m taking guesses on where people think I might go on this grand and exciting mission of mine. I have a map at my apartment with pins to mark the guesses. As an incentive, I’ll send the winner a really good homemade treat. (I’m a poor college kid about to go on a mission here folks, this is about the best I can do.) If you have kids, they can guess too and if they are too little to eat treats, well hey, it’s like 2 guesses for you… 2 chances to win (example, Cameron Taylor Warner is too little for sweet rolls/cookies/no bakes/brownies… So, congrats to Loralee who gets to guess twice.) Anyways, there you have it. Happy hypothesizing.
