A Day Without My Comfort Zone... Sorta.





Today has been a pretty rockin day so far. I woke up this morning with quite a bit of energy. I ate my usual breakfast then put in my Billy Banks DVD and got my booty kicked. Hopefully it'll make it a little thinner too... Hey, I can dream. Half way through the DVD I got incredibly sick and had to choke back "come-up-ins" for about 5 minutes. But then I felt fine so I resumed the booty kickin. Next time I'm not going to start immediately after eating.

Then I sang in the shower and got ready for the day. Today was a goodbye lunch for a teacher at my school. I was hesitant to go because I'm shy in those types of situations, but Kristie said she was going so I decided it would be a good chance to get to know my co-workers better. I'm really glad I went because we had a lot of fun. And I actually tried something new at Applebees! I'm a steak and potatoes girl so that's what I always order, but I tried the shrimp salad, it's INCREDIBLE! So after lunch Kristie and I did a little shopping around the Gateway then we went home. It was so fun!

When I got home, Cory was off work and working on Collin's Jeep so I decided it was a good time to do some homework. I got through 2 chapters and then I fell asleep :). It's impossible to read with the white noise and the warmth of a space heater lulling you to sleep. Then Cory woke me up so we could go to the baptisms of 2 of our primary kids. It was really fun to watch them do something so special. The father of one of our girls asked Cory to stand in the circle. It choked me up because I cannot tell you how grateful that I married someone who is worthy of his priesthood and exercises it. He can help out whenever asked. I got so lucky with him. He's amazing. I love him.

After the baptisms we came home and decided to make homemade pizza. In the past, I have HATED homemade pizza but I was feeling adventurous and decided to give it a shot. We pulled out our pizza stone and loaded our pizza with our favorite toppings. And guess what happened? It turned out AMAZING!! It tasted so freaking good! I'd prefer it over Papa Murphy's any day. We're going to have to try it again. But we did run into a snag. We constructed the pizza on the counter while the pizza stone was warming in the oven...this is a bad idea. Transporting the pizza to the stone is extremely difficult. After trying several different methods we finally got it on the stone. We had fun making it and chowed down while watching The Simpsons. It's been a good day. I love Saturdays!

And you let Cory have that weapon? My, my, my, no wonder you were uncomfortable!! Tell Cory thanks again for fixing Collin's jeep. That was so amazingly nice of him to do that!
