Officially future Mrs. Bullock

Last night Logan surprised me in the best way possible. I am so excited to be sealed to him for time and all eternity. We’re engaged! 💍

El 9 de Marzo

2 years ago today, I entered the MTC. I can't believe how much time has gone by.

But I'm also amazed at just how much has happened in that time. I have been tested, and scoffed at. I have kept silent when I should have spoken. I have tried, and failed. I have doubted, and cried. I have felt all the feelings—embarrassment, exhaustion, hope, dismay, frustration, joy, disbelief, and the pure love of Christ. I have felt the Spirit so strongly that I couldn't breathe and so frequently that I was amazed. I saw and felt the inexplicable joy that comes from choosing the right and from following the Savior. I had the privilege of witnessing people talk with their Father in Heaven for the first time ever, out loud. As I dedicated myself to studying the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and living and sharing it, I experienced and was blessed by the power of Christ's Atonement and the power of the priesthood. I know that going on a mission was the best thing I could've done at that point in my life.

And I wouldn't have traded any of it. The highs and the lows are a part of the mission and they are a part of life. I grew so much closer to my Savior and for that I will be forever grateful. Thanks to Him and His gospel, and thanks to good disciples of Christ such as my mission president and his wife, I've learned to just do what's right, consistently.

I love my Savior, Jesus Christ. I am filled with gratitude for Him and His atoning sacrifice. His example and His goodness are what motivate me to keep trying. To serve and love others as He did. To keep the commandments of Heavenly Father. So that ultimately, I can become more like Them.

And thanks to the mission, I got to meet this stud.

Mini Competition

Because of the snow, the plan had to be adjusted quite a bit. But we got some good training in, despite the bitter cold. There were moments I wanted to die, but I survived thankfully. Here are some pictures so you get a feel of what my Friday and Saturday were like.
Shout out to Logan for being so understanding of my frequent soreness, exhaustion, and random injuries. His massages are the best.

Yes, that is snow frosting her hair.

Wearing gas masks sucks. But at least they look cool.

Allen, our fearless leader.

Some of the things we did were way fun.

But this picture more accurately depicts how I felt the majority of the time.

Gotta love Joshy. He kept my spirits up with pep talks and contraband.

Love you, Fifi

Fiona is my favorite sister. She gave the lesson in Relief Society today (she did AWESOME!!) and one of the quotes she shared that I loved is, “Ultimately, what we become is the result of our knowledge of and willingness to learn from the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost” (Elder David A. Bednar, “Exceeding Great and Precious Promises”).

Kaitlin, one of my roomies, gave a talk on the Savior and His Atonement in sacrament meeting and it was wonderful. I could feel the power of the Spirit in every word she said.
Remember, repentance is a positive change. Christ’s Atonement is infinite. It applies to YOU. Even you.

I have so many things to be grateful for. And today, thanks to my Savior, my sister, and Sabbath day observance, repentance is at the top of the list.

Pest Control...and other things that bring me joy

This is my co-worker (pictured left) and my boss (right). They're awesome.

This is my job.

I love the mountains and Kristi.


These made me so so happy.

HE makes me happy. :)

Joshy is just a tad bit baby hungry. Can you blame him? He's going to be an amazing dad.

 Nature is breathtaking.
