So this weekend has definitely been interesting. I got a call on Friday during my math class from our apartment management telling me that our hot water heater went out... AGAIN.. and this time for good. They are ordering us a new one and they are REALLLLYYY sorry... blah blah blah. So how long am I gonna be without water? The ladies' voice changed real quick and was told me the following... "Well, that's the thing, it's not only your water this time, it's your heat too. BUT we are ordering you a new one... and it will be here in about 8-10 business days." In my head since I was in my math class I was quick on my feet figuring how MISERABLE we would be in the middle of the artic here in Rexburg!! Anyways, she then told me they would be putting us up here..
Hey, it's the newest hotel in Rexburg, I am down!! SO... Friday night was a lot of running around trying to get everything figured out... But we are settled in and enjoying the free continential breakfast, hot tub/ swimming pool and maid service! :) So this is my home sweet home until the end of the week... possible longer. Hopefully we can get back home sooner rather than later. Next, Church.... Today as I walked out of Relief Society we walked out to all of the Priesthood brethren standing with stupid smiles on their faces like someone just paid them 10 bucks to smile. My friend and I walked up to one of them to discuss tomorrow's FHE plans and they started all this nonsense of compliments. My dress, my hair, my boots, my make-up.. the list goes on. At first I was like... well, duh! (just kidding!!!!) At first I was like, hmmm these boys want something... should I tell them now or later I can't cook for them for at LEAST a week... I decided to wait for a few more compliments before breaking the bad news to them. They told us they didn't want anything from us.. we decided to walk away asap and take the compliments and RUN!!!! I turned around and literally ran into Duke (not his real name but he was wearing a duke sweatshirt the first time I met him and can not ever remember his real name... so he answers to Duke) Duke immediately appologized and then told me how beautiful I looked today. He started with my dress (wow, wow, wow... started complimenting my dress... what were you thinking....) and I told them I had already herd that one a few times today... he kept trying to find something that hadn't been complimented.. apparently all that was left was my rings. He told me I had pretty fingers and my rings made my hands sparkle.... I laughed thanked Duke and walked away. Then I headed for my meeting and heard the whistle. (You know the one I am talking about, people do "the whistle" when they like what they see...) I of course didn't turn my head as there were about 4,654 people in the foyer. I kept walking. Got over to my meeting turned around and just as I turned around I heard the whistle AGAIN. I made eye contact with a boy from my ward and his jaw was dropped. He motioned for me to go see him so I went over there getting more compliments on the way. I got over to him (I call this one Redhot.... for obvious reasons) and he told me he whistled at me TWICE and it was very rude that I didn't respond. I told him usually the whistle isn't for me... so I don't even turn my head any more... this upset him and he restated EVERY compliment you could give a girl.... Duke came over and joined. I may have felt a little awkward but it was definitely appreciated. So after letting them go on for a few minutes I asked them why all of the sudden all these "Priesthood Brethren" were all of the sudden so nice and complimenting us so much. Redhot tried to say it was him and he told them all we need to appreciate the beautiful women of the ward more... Right..... Duke however just laughed, shook his head, and said the Bishop commanded us to compliment daughters of God more... A LOT more! Bahaha. Go Bishop!!! Hopefully it doesn't stop. I wouldn't mind swimming through a stream of compliments every Sunday... Just keep swimmin' Just keep Swimmin'
