October's book and other randomness...

If you haven't been to Devyn's book bag blog yet, you should! It is so fun. She is so cute and has made such a fun website for women who love to read. I suggested a book to her and she used my suggestion! I feel almost kinda famous or special that the book I recommended is this months book. So everyone go to her fabulous website and check out this month's book. The book is called The Wednesday Letters, by Jason F. Wright. It's the sweetest story, I don't want to say to much about it because I don't want to give any of it away. I'm not finished with it or super far yet at all and I already love it and have needed the kleenex's. So seriously! Read it with us!

Cory and I had a nice Conference weekend. I love Conference weekend, even with all the rain! Friday we went to a dinner on my McBride side. My cousin Michael is going on a mission and it was his last dinner hurrah with his family here in Utah before he goes. I haven't seen a lot of my cousins and other family members on that side of my family for a long time. It was nice visiting with them.

Saturday during priesthood session I was supposed to go to my Cousin Erin's baby shower, but sadly I couldn't go. I’m so so sorry Erin! Little Hayden is already causing some horrendous back pain and braxton hick's contractions! I guess my body is just practicing for the real contractions, but they make me so sore. 3 more months....3 more months, is what I keep having to tell myself. Then I can have my little man here with me finally.

And Sunday my Grandma Nelson came over and made her famous roast, mash potatoes and gravy. YUMMY! I've been craving it forever! Thanks Grandma, I love you!

I really enjoyed conference. It was good to be reminded to "enjoy the journey..." This conference also helped me a little with the talk that Cory and I get to give the Young Women next Sunday! I am soo nervous! I was just in young women’s 4 years ago! My aunt in my home ward is Young Women's President. She asked Cor and I to give the lesson on "Marriage Standards" a few weeks ago. I've been really thinking about what I want to say and where to go with the lesson. I hope it goes ok. Young Women are bombarded with so many things that the world throws at them. I hope that the spirit will help me convey how important it is to have good marriage standards. Only a few days left… I will let you know how it goes.

I hope everyone had a nice weekend and will have a fabulous new week!

"I'm Megan and I'm pregnant and I'm soooo stinkin' awesome." I swear, swear, swear we'll go- the three of us. Twice a year. Forever.

Glad you had a great conference weekend. Ours was great, too. I really enjoyed sister Dalton's (?) talk.

Ps: Tell your hubs congrats on Miami's win! Packers lost so I have an angry hubs.

That looks like a good book, I am going to read it. And I cannot believe you have not read the vampire books! You need to get on that, you will love them. I also can't believe you only have three more months, that will be here before you know it! Good luck on your lesson, I hope that doesn't put you into labor :)

Speaking of The Wednesday Letters, I work with Jason and thought you’d like knowing he has a new contest on his web site where you can win a free trip-for-two to his hometown in VA, the Shenandoah Valley. All you have to do is mail him a Christmas card! All the details are here:
