one of those days....

So Rick has been out in the MTC for exactly a month!! For girls that have missionaries out there.... you know when you have one of those days and you just feel depressed and you just start crying, you can't think of anyone or anything else besides him? And all you want is just to have him there with you and to hold you and tell you everything will be ok? Yup! One of those days for me!! I just started balling! I hate being emotional so much! It is no bueno but I just couldn't hold it in! It was just a really hard day. I wrote him a letter which helped so much! I just wanted to get my feelings out there because he is the one person I tell everything too! Is that too much for him to handle?! I feel bad telling him all of that debbie downer stuff because I feel like I need to be the upbeat person that helps him keep going! I just needed to tell him my feelings!! It felt very good which was awesome! I guess on a positive note, it shows how much I love him and miss him and it also shows how badly I want us to work out! Anyways!! I hope these kind of days get easier!! I feel like once I get back to BYU I am going to be so busy that it will start to go by faster and faster. I have loved getting a letter from him each week and it has helped me get through each week! I am getting scared when he goes to Nicaragua because then it will take a while to get his letters but thats ok! It is also good to know that he is out doing the right thing and I wouldn't want him anywhere else but on his Mish! I love him so much! But anyways its going to be ok!! It only gets easier from here and then boom! He will be back home and I will be the happiest person alive!! 1 month down 23 to go!! WOO! That doesn't seem so bad right?!

My Newest Addiction

Ok.... so for people that know me.... my addiction for the past like year has been dried mangos and ohhhhh don't worry they still totally are!! But I have also found out I LOVE Edamame!!! So good!! They are quick and easy to make and they are also actually somewhat healthy for you!! I love them! I don't even know how I started to even buy them I think I was shopping at Costco with my mom and we came across them and decided to try them!!! Obviously a huge hit!! :) Great snack and idea for food for my apartment in the fall!! Now I just need to find more of these quick and easy AND healthy snacks!! The hunt is on!!

Rick's Letters

I have now gotten two letters from Rick and they have seriously made me know that everything is going to be ok and that these two years are not going to be as hard as I thought!! :) His letters have really made me feel like I am talking to him and it is just so nice to actually hear from him and know that he is doing ok!! Within the past two letters, he says he is loving the MTC and him and his companion and district are getting along GREAT!! It was so good to hear that he is doing so well in the MTC! I now have a favorite day of the week and that is Thursdays (the day that Rick's letters get to me!) It seriously makes my week when I receive a letter from him! I just got a box to save all of his letters in! It will be so great for me and him to look through them when he gets back and later on in our lives! I really did forget how much I love communicating through letters! Sure texting is and emails are great! But it means so much more when it is a handwritten letter! It shows that the person put time into it and you really know you mean a lot to that person when you receive a long letter from him! :) It is also so great to have something to hold on to and look back at years later! It is kind of like a scrapbook! :) I love it! I sent him his first letter AND package on Tuesday and it really did seem like I was putting everything in the letter and I hope he knows that when he is reading it!! :) Anyways what I am saying is that I love Rick's letters and I love hearing about how he is doing and I am so excited to hear about his adventures in Nicaragua! :)
