I'm Twenty and this Week Rocked

So get this.. I have the coolest friends ever. And as sweet as you can make a birthday on a mission, they did!
We went to BWW for lunch (sad cause it was boneless Thursday, not traditional Tuesday... but it still was the bomb) with all of the missionaries in the zone. My companion and some of the other sisters got me a cheesecake and a crown and a ribbon and princess plates and party poppers and party hats and it was a fiesta!
Then one of the members in the ward, who also doubles as one of my friends who I will love forever, made me fajitas for din din. She also decorated and placed a crown on my head. She made me pies cause she's the best baker ever. Then I came home to glow sticks on the floor and ceiling that said "Happy Birthday 20" "We Luv Jonny" (Jonny=me), seriously though, it was a great day and I felt so loved even though I was so far away from family and friends. Oh and my zone leaders and sister training leader did the blazin' challenge for my birthday, so they rock.
also a shout out to my companion who made it amazing! I love Foster child. And also a shout out to everyone who sent me cards and packages and goods, you all have a special place in my heart... thank you!! I burnt a skirt cause I hit my 6 month mark so that was pretty rad.
One of my investigators threw me a party too on Friday. She is so thoughtful!
Hey well have a stellar week and remember who you are. 

6 months in the house!

Fill Up The Tub!!

Okay, last week was a false alarm!! Carol's baptism is THIS weekend. SO PUMPED! 
So, this week we were tracting, and we knocked on this lady's door she answered- 
me: Hi, we are the missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. 
her: stares at my name tag* "I find your name tag offensive because you are not a real religious sister." *slams door* 
Okay ma'am.
I laughed pretty hard, sister foster was terrified hahaha 

This week is my moms birth week!!! Tell her happy 29th!! Honestly though, I forget that she isn't turning 35 again and I sometimes tell people that cause I think she is... but since I'm turning 20 in two weeks it's getting weirder and weirder. oops :) 

We had a crazy amazing lesson on the atonement this week with two of our investigators. I'm so grateful for the Savior and His sacrifice. 

Sorry I don't have any other crazy stories. have a beautiful week. 

But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.- Mosiah 14:5

^^^^^ I love this one, love it too ❤

Get the (investi)gators! 

I want a white house with blue shutters... name that movie!! 

Yes that's a loaf of bread in my back pack
