Its a Bitter Sweet Ending and New Beginning

After saying goodbye to us for months they have finally been released. We had to say our finally goodbyes after a very teary eyed Sacrament Meeting. Bishop Wilcox, Brother Fletcher, and Brother Rich, who were the first Bishopric after the 29th ward was made just over 3 years ago . They get to return to their families now, which is a happy thing for them, its where they need to be. 
They have touched numerous lives in this ward, and it showed by the number in attendance. Not only had we combined with our other half for the summer (the 65th ward that was made from a split from us a year ago) but numerous couple who were in the ward before getting married. Last week the email went out that the release was happening, friends told friends, and anyone who was touched by this Bishopric tried to be there.
The bitter sweet part... I know our new Bishopric. 
As I drove up to church I recognized a white mustang with blue racing stripes... Larry Johnson, well that'd be cool I thought. As I go into the chapel I'm looking for Lindsay to sit by, but I don't see here, then I find Clint. Well I might as well go sit by him as Lindsay would be around somewhere. I sit down and get a tap on my shoulder and Leah Lucherini is sitting behind me... along with the whole Lucherini family. Well I think to myself that that would be cool, totally forgetting about Larry Johnson. The meeting goes on and after the Sacrament they release Bishop Wilcox, Brother Fletcher, and Brother Rich. Then they announce/sustain the new Bishopric. Bishop Monte Lucherini, 1st Counselor Larry Johnson, and 2nd Counselor Kirk Jardine who I guess is also from North Logan. So as sad as it is to let the old go, its good to know the new and good to have them here for this new beginning. In my heart it was a tender mercy from the Lord knowing that I will still feel at home with them in the Bishopric, as that is what this ward has always felt like to me, a home.
Best of luck to both leaving and entering, the Lord is with all of you.

So I've been really awful at blogging lately... SORRY. but oh well, it happens. I figured this was worth blogging about tho :)

My good friend Lindsay recently started dating a guy, Clint, and he has introduced us to a lot of new people. Now I have a social life and I'm having a ton of fun! Anyways back to my story...
Friday afternoon I got a text from Taila asking if I wanted to go see Iron Man with a group of people. So I thought about it then decided yeah, I'd go. We decided to meet at Clints at 715 and then we were going to dinner and the movie at 10. I met the group that was going, Clint, Josh, Cullen, Sean, Taila, Julia, and me, Brandon and his date were going to show up for the movie later. This was the first time I had met both Sean and Julia.
I jump in the car with Cullen, Taila, Sean and Julia. Sean sat between me and Julia and was so hilarious! He kept flirting up a storm, so cute. I definitely want to get to know this guy.
Dinner was at Smokin' Blues, a new BBQ joint in Providence, that has a nice rootbeer bar. With the rootbeer bar they brought out a list of their sodas that they carry in the bottles which they bring out with a frosted mason glass. Dinner was great, talking/flirting with Sean, just fun all over! 
After dinner while waiting for the checks and boxes I was talking to Clint and Taila said something about us playing spin the bottle with the empty glass bottles. Well I was talking to Clint and not paying to much attention, the next thing I know is that I hear my name and Sean has grabbed my face! My heart has jumped to my throat and I'm not sure what to do, but Sean had put his thumbs over my lips so we didn't actually kiss. So then we made a big show about it for the camera, and I couldn't stop laughing. Then Clint started egging Josh and Taila to do the same thing. 
At the movie we sat by each other and flirted some more, then he got our numbers later since we'll all be here in Logan during the summer, so we'll just have to see what happens. 
Oh yeah and Iron Man was pretty sweet as well!
The cool thing is now having an insider. Lindsay, even though she is in Kansas right now, talked to Clint and found something out. Sean talked to Clint about Friday and said he had a lot of fun and thought about really kissing me! Oh my how fun!
This summer is going to ROCK!!!
