The Answer to Our Life

This weekend was probably the best weekend I have had since I moved to Flagstaff. It's been a huge adjustment, and I haven't really been happy, but I've done a really good job of hiding it. Most people don't know. But this weekend was amazing.

Friday night, Ashton and I drove to Clarkdale for some Mexican food. Yes, we really did drive 3 hours to eat. But it was totally worth it. It was nice to finally eat some decent Mexican food, since Taco Bell is about all we have here. We drove through Oak Creek Canyon and Sedona, so we saw some beautiful fall colors. It's incredible how beautiful it is--it's not something I have seen much growing up in Chandler. But we saw some beautiful colors: red, maroon, was wonderful. And it was nice to relax and listen to the Backstreet Boys.

Then Saturday we went to the homecoming football game! NAU killed ISU, 40-12. It was pretty awesome. Now we wondered why we haven't been to any of the games so far. It was fun to yell at everyone. Ashton and I went with Bonnee, one of my best friends up here. We laughed, talked, and checked out the cute football players. Then we went to dinner at an awesome pizza place downtown and watched more football. So definitely the best weekend I have had up here so far.

And I went to church today for the first time in about a month. I've been various places so I have missed it--Allie's wedding, going home, going to the Grand Canyon, etc. But it was nice to go to church again and to see my friends. Then I went visiting teaching afterwards. It's a feeling that I didn't know I was missing. It's so wonderful to be around people who have the same objectives, values, and beliefs. It's just relaxing. You don't have to worry about anything. And it's a nice feeling to do what you're supposed to do.
