Today was our Stake Conference and might I just add what a glorious day it was! Still a tid bit nippy but wonderful. Our ward building was so packed they had to open up the other chapel - I couldn't beleive how HUGE our stake is!!!! The choir was outstanding, and the talks given gave us alot of insight into things we need to improve and thankfully things we're actually doing (phew) it's made me want to be a better person and serve more faithfully. We are so blessed to have been able to attend both the Saturday night and Sunday Stake sessions... what a great valentines date to be able to attend Stake Conference together.
Afterwards Jay and I came home, ate some lunch (Cashew Chicken.. yum yum!), then went to a park we found Friday when we went to the Animal Shelter. There are all these ponds with TONS & TONS of ducks! We had a blast feeding them, some would get impatient to be fed and would start pecking at our pant legs. One duck actually would grab the back of Jay's pant leg and shake it until he turned around and gave him a piece of bread lol. All in all it was a great day and a true blessing to be able to spend with my hunny :-)

So I went to the bank to deposit Jay's first paycheck (YAY!)and it was pretty funny cause the girl that helped me saw the contractor's name on the check and asked how long Jay has been working for him. Come to find out her husband use to work for Jay's boss in the same company and acording to her it sounds like he's a really nice and easy going guy who is very willing to work with you if you're going through school or going on vactation etc. What's funny is not only did her husband work for the same guy but he's also going through the same construction management program at BYU-I that Jay is trying to get into and on top of all that.... the girl's name was Brittany, it was even spelled the same too. LOL how crazy is that
