Since I've been home I have been busy nannying and spending as much time with my family and friends, but it is all paying off.  Everything is always so fun and makes the last bit of time I have before my mission even more memorable!

We wanted to take some family pictures before I left so we could at least have an updated family shot.  It was one of the best times to take the pictures considering I'll be gone for 18 months and we will need to wait that long to get a full family picture. 

Also, my family was able to finally find a few days to get away and head out to one of our favorite spots...DISNEYLAND!!! Going to Disneyland always brings back so many memories and we all just laugh and play and all that fun stuff. 

Love You All!!! Thanks for all the FuN and MeMoRiEeS

Time Is Flying

Well the time has come for me to go out on a new adventure in life...I'll be entering the MTC on July 7 to prepare for the next 18 months to be Sister Teerlink in Salt Lake City at Temple Square. I can't believe that it is really this time in my life, I have always thought about this part of my life and its really here now.
Many people have been asking when I decided to go because all of a sudden my papers were in and I was opening my call. So here it goes...After a lot of thinking, praying, and talks with friends I knew it was the right thing to do. I was planning on going to school one more semester, but when you can easily drop all your classes, sell your contract, and have your parents drive out to help you move must be the right thing to do. I met with my Bishop got my papers started, made all the needed appointments to complete my papers, went to my last few interviews and my papers were in within 2 weeks. Then only 10 days later on April 16 I had my call and was opening it with my family.

All in all when everything falls into place, the Lord has a plan and is going to make it work. At that point I knew that I was doing the right thing and I am so blessed to have this opportunity to go and serve as a missionary. I have such amazing support from all my family and friends and cannot thank them enough for all that they do and bless me with daily.
Since then...I celebrated my birthday in the Sacramento Temple with the best company I could have asked to be there with me. The experience was amazing and I am so grateful for all that I felt and learned and know that I will continue learning and growing every time I go back.

Thank you to all my family and friends that were there! I Love you all and don't know where I would be without you.
