Well this past weekend was easter and my church's general conference. It was SO good. i love conference. i feel like as i've gotten older, i have come to love conference a lot more and get more out of it every year. All the talks were so good. The apostles are such great examples of truly humble, christlike men. I love them so much. I got to go to conference sunday afternoon session and listen in person. The spirit is always so strong in the conference center. It was also really neat to listen to Jim Martino speak. He is from my home stake and is now one of the General Authorities. His wife used to babysit me when I was little and it was so cool to see him talking at General Conference. His talk was really good and I really enjoyed it. I thought this was really cute: As everyone was exiting the conference center after conference ended, President Uchtdorf and some of the apostles started waving to everyone as they left and everyone in the conference center starting waving bye back. It was really cute. After sunday afternoon session, I went over to the Beifuss' for easter dinner. ALL their family is in town so there were a lot of people there. It was a lot of fun. After dinner, Grandma June gathered everyone together in the great room (like thirty people) and we went around and each said our favorite talk or something we learned from conference. It was really good to hear what everyone had to say and just be reminded of some of the great stories from conference. I loved it and i think one day i will make it a tradition in my own family.
Also this weekend, I got to celebrate Celeste's 17th birthday with the Cosletts! They came into town for David's wedding and for Conference, so saturday night they threw celeste an indian themed birthday party. It was so fun!! It was set up and decorated so cute. They really are like my second family and I'm glad i got spend time with them!
Well i think that's all for now. I get my EMT-basic certification in about 3 weeks and I am really excited about that as well. Life is so great and i've been so blessesd. I CAN'T WAIT FOR SUMMER!!!
love you all. over and out.
P.S. if your wondering about the blog title... it is the Arizona state motto. haha. it means "God Enriches." yuh!

Lady Antebellum and Tim Mcgraw are coming to utah this summer, July 30! they are also performing in dallas on may 7 (i am kind of tempted to go home for my bday and go to it) and pheonix, AZ june 30. I LOVE lady antebellum. I am way excited to see them in concert! I've only been to one other "official" concert and that was the Eli Young band. I can't wait!
The Lion King Broadway play is coming to Utah in August. I want to go see it so bad!! I heard that wicked is coming too, which i would like to see also, but out of the two i think i would pick the lion king. I don't know much about wicked. has anyone that reads this seen wicked?
I also really want to go on a cruise this summer. or some kind of trip to the beach. a pretty, WARM beach. You can find last minute cruises for like $250, which would be a lot of fun. Some friends and I were talking about an LDS singles cruise the other day. haha. we wouldn't actually go in hopes of finding someone, but i think it would be really funny/entertaining to go on one of those and see how everyone is. it would be great.
aaannddd I am super excited to go visit AZ this summer! yeah kat!
Summer needs to hurry. And I need to find me a second job so that I can do all of these fun things that I want to do. Donations are welcome. haha just kiddin.
COME ON SUMMER!! BRING ON THE HEAT!
P.S. I am also looking forward to these events: St. Patricks Day, Easter, April General Conference, and My 21st birthday. Woop Woop!

SUCH a great movie. seriously it is one of my new favorites movies. it was so sad and so happy at the same time. and so touching how the mom took him in and helped him so much. I love giving good-hearted people. i really really loved the movie.
so today was my day off and i was really productive and watched modern family ALL day. haha. i hadn't watched it yet, but i had heard good things so i finally looked it up and watched it and i was laughing the whooooole time. hahah sooo funny. its up there with friends on how funny it is
IN THE MOTHERHOOD
i don't know if any of ya'll watch chelsea lately.... she has a late night show on E. probably not bc the show is kind of racy. but chelsea handler is SO funny!
her and Jenny McCarthy and Leah Remini (wife from King of Queens) made these "webisodes" called in the motherhood which is about... thats right... motherhood. and they are HILARIOUS. seriously. watch them. crystal showed them to me and we were c r a c k in g up! here is the link to go watch them... seriously watch them you wont regret it.....

ay ay ay! i love this place! i won a gift certificate there at my work christmas party and i just want to say how much i love that restaurant. so good. If you ever want to win my heart... take me there.
When crystal was here
we went to temple square look at the lights. I love temple square. crystal had never been so we walked all over and then we even got a tour of the new conference center. I've been there once before for the conference, but the tour was so amazing. all the little things about the conference center and things that went into building it are really neat. if you ever get the chance take the tour. its really short and interesting. anywho i love the temple and i cant wait to go someday.
i've had an itch to travel lately.
i really want to go to europe and just be able to go see these cool places
The first picture is Italy. which i've heard is so gorgeous. I would love to go see rome and all the cool historical places there. the second picture is Paris. i would wa
nt to go to paris too but really i just want to go to France. I hear they have way yummy food, and all the fashion and cool historical places. i would love to go there. the third picture is jerusalem. I have a friend at byu jerusalem right now and she says it is AMAZING. so spiritual and so pretty. it would be SO neat to go see the places where Christ visited and loved. I def want to go there in my lifetime. and the last picture is hawaii. i just love the beach. i want to go anywhere with a beautiful beach.
also... i would just like to comment on how cute old people are. I love seeing cute old couples walking around or old ladies that are still best friends. i love it.
last but not least... if your having a bad day, watch this...
LOVE YOU ALL!
