An Experiment....And A Question.

Do you make your bed every day?

I'm curious.

Growing up I did.
Every. Single. Day.
Because my Mom told me to.
{Also, she would take my pillow if I didn't, and I'd have to pay to get it back!}

In my house, making one's bed was important.
I also cleaned my room and bathroom every day.
{It was also required.}

I haven't been stellar at keeping these habits up over the years,
but a part of me definitely still LOVES it when I do.

I LOVE a freshly made bed,
with brand new clean sheets.

I also love a clean bathroom.

I recently happened upon this article
and it made me think.

I AM happier when my bed is made.
I love the idea of feeling happier and more productive,
{plus, bonus, sticking to a budget?!?!}
simply by spending 3 minutes more in the morning.

I've been testing out this theory of
"making your bed to achieve happiness"
and you know what?

I'm a believer.

Now, if only I could stop dreaming of better bedding...
because this whole experiment in bed making,
totally makes me want to buy new bedding.
Because can never have enough duvet covers....

P.S. Photo above - my current bedding, which I DO love,
I just want more!

Flashback Friday - Madi

I know...
not a huge flashback in time...
But this is Madi,
back when she was an intern for the summer
working for me.

Since this photo was taken,
she graduated from college,
came back to work for BYU,
and today was her last day.

She took a job in the Bahamas!
{I am SO going to visit her...}

This still counts as a flashback though...
because once upon a time,
I was Madi's primary teacher.

How's that for aging me?

Love you Madi,
and I'm totally going to miss you!

Yes, Please.

Glamping in Moab and Yellowstone.
Sign. Me. Up.

This is my kind of camping.
For real.

I love this video.
The message is timeless and beautiful.

I taught a lesson last Sunday,
to the youth in one ward in my Stake,
and the topic was on knowing WHO you are.

I am a daughter of my Heavenly Father, 
who loves me
and I love him.

I know this.
It colors everything that I do,
and has an impact on all that I am.

Because of Him.

Thoughts on General Conference

I loved this last General Conference!
I was totally sick with a sinus infection...

but maybe that just gave me that much more of a reason
to be still and listen.

Here are some of my "doodles" from the talks:

On Sunday,
despite being sick
I was offered some last minute tickets 
to the Sunday afternoon session,
and I would never turn that down!
So my friend and I headed downtown.
We had GREAT seats!
{and so much fun!}

I already cannot wait for October!

March Madness Winner!

Loved the craziness 
of this year's tournament...

Who would have guessed
that a 7 seed and an 8 seed would play for the final?

{not me, obviously!}

Congratulations go to Nancy...
who picks UConn every year,
and for whom it has 
paid off!

Made Me Laugh Today...

And that is saying something.
Because I have a sinus infection,
and I am feeling miserable.

Julia Louis Dreyfus...
So funny.
and so true.
