My bad...

Okay, so before we left for my baptism, I checked multiple times to make sure my mom brought her camera to take pictures. Then we got there, I kept getting distracted ALL night and completely forgot. Not even family pictures.

The elders took some right before with me in white, so maybe I'll ask them to send me some and I can post them when I get them??

Sorry bout that. Totally my bad. And I am totally sad that I didn't take any.

But on a happier note, everything went fantastically well! I was sooooo darn nervous all day for my talk and just in general (I don't really like having an entire room focused on me at any moment if you know what I mean). But seriously, as soon as the service started all of my anxiety went away. Like, totally gone. It was amazing.

I didn't feel nervous at all, and a few people said that I didn't even look nervous. Score! So I think it went well, people kept telling me it was good (but I think they would have even if it wasn't) and it felt genuine instead of the obligatory compliments.

It was so awesome to be able to partake of the sacrament yesterday. When it came around (I just got confirmed like ten minutes before) I had to look around and ask the girl sitting next to me if I could take it now. It was so cool, I feel like an actual member now!

And my two aunts and family got me my own set of scriptures with my name engraved on the front and everything! I told my cousin that I feel "legit" now. I love the blue and silver, and I told my aunt on sunday that my favorite part was that they wrote a little something in the front cover! She said she wasn't sure if that was okay, and so I HAD to tell her how much I loved it because it made it even more special and would remind me of that day and their being there every time I opened it up!

Thanks to all of you guys too! I love how excited you are for me, and I am sure you can tell how excited I am! You have all been such a blessing in my life and helped show me what an amazing influence the Church has been in your life and have brought a smile to my face when I read your posts!

PS. I promise one of these days I will have pictures that do not consist of me sitting in front of my computer in my room/ are not taken with my iphone.
