I get along SO well with Hermana Heslop, which makes for more pleasant everything! She also is super worried about the weight she´s gained, and SO this week we started working out and eating super healthy (see picture). It´s a lot easier to do it when your companion wants to be healthy too! SO here´s to lookin good :)
Our Diet Plan
My new companion Hermana Heslop
Jake, sometimes I get super jealous that you are serving a mission in the states and have access to all of the good American goodies. Hermana Heslop and I were talking about all of the food that we miss and I made a list of things that aren´t here, but that I´d seriously give my right arm to have. It´s funny how you don´t realize you´re mission something until you don´t have it.
Fruit snacks, red vines and twizzlers, goldfish (but Hermana Heslop has a few left so I had a few this week and they were SO good!), cinnamon pop tarts, sea salt and cracked pepper chips, nilla wafers, and pretzels.
And one more story to wrap this week up! So yesterday we had lunch with a family in our ward that has a hedgehog as a pet. It freaked me out because I´d never seen one before, and it took a lot to end up holding it, but I knew I´d regret it if I didn´t do it. So Hermana Heslop started, we got super cute pictures, and then it was my turn. I had it in my hands for like 2 seconds and it started pooping. IN.MY.HAND. Luckily, we caught it with a napkin before it actually touched my hand, but THAT IS WHY I DON´T LIKE ANIMALS. jeez Louise. We laughed so hard, and then Hermana Antillón wanted to hold it and I turned to look at her, and saw that the hedgehog was about to start peeing on her. It got on her clothes, and it was hysterical. We laughed for about 10 minutes non stop and a lot of us were crying because it was SO stinking funny (ha ha no pun intended). You would´ve had to have been there, but it was so funny! Hope the pictures help :)
With the hedgehog
I LOVE YOU SO MUCH! Have a fabulous week in California!
Also, I finished 3 Nefi (Nephi in the Book of Mormon) this morning! If I read 2 chapters a day, I´ll finish by conference! 19 days! YAY! I´m so excited! 3 Nefi is super powerful! Especially 3 Nefi 18. Read it this week. It´s awesome!
I love you!
Grafitti...love you buddy!
