Uh-Oh

Sunday I got a new calling. When they first told me what it was, I think I gave this look:

I'm the 2nd counselor in the Young Women's presidency. I think part of me instantly felt like a Beehive again, which isn't necessarily the most pleasant of memories. And here's why:

Notice the sweet braces, feathered bangs, perma-scab/zit on my chin, the glasses as big as my head, the perm... Ah, those were the awkward days! Luckily I was pretty on the inside...or something. Ahem.

But now I'm way excited. We have 7 girls, and they are all so stinking cute! I can't wait to get to know my new babysitters-uh, I mean, the girls I will mold and teach and plant little seeds of righteousness in!

Anyway, last night I had my first Mutual activity since I was in as a Young Woman. We did stupid human tricks. These girls had crazy moves-weird toe/double jointed things, and stilt walking and yoga moves...



And of course I forgot my camera.

But, I totally found a clip of the trick that I did! (Yeah, this won't freak the girls out about their new leader!)

By the way, I totally disagree about them being "losers". Although they do attend BYU-I... (KIDDING!!)

Anyway, I hope everything goes well for me and my new calling. But we have an amazing President, Jodi. And Jozet is 1st counselor, and Janae is secretary, so I'm not so worried, because I can coast on their amazing coattails for a while and hopefully not scar the girls for life. I'm sure their parents will appreciate that.

You will be amazing in the YW! I'm sure your broom challenge has endeared you to those girls already and I can't wait to hear about your adventures amoungst the beehives, miamaids, and laurels.

Congrats! That's so awesome! You'll be a fabulous leader!

So, I kind of giggled inside when they read your name on Sunday! Mostly because we had recently been discussing how you didn't think you would ever be anything but the organist/music chair. You will be great at it. :)

Rachel said...

What lucky Young Women to get such awesome new leaders, they are going to learn so much from you and have lots of fun! You always crack me up with your blog-thanks for the laughs!

Amy said...

Now you can be late for sacrament meeting- j/k. You will be a great YW leader! I haven't been there since I was a yw either. Good luck with all that though- you really will do awesome.

Jodi said...

Oh my goodness, you crack me up!

I don't know how you are so good at finding these perfect clips and pictures.

I think we have some great potential blogging opportunities coming our way. We are going to have carry our camera at all times.

You are so funny! I love that picture of you, we all have ones like that. You will be so awesome and the ladies you get to work with are so great!

Now we can be calling twinners. I'm over the Beehives too. A lot of memories about "being a beehive" will come back. Some good. Some iffy. I like to buzz when they are "Acting like beehives." You'll figure it out. They'll just love you. Bzzzzzzz.

Karlenn said...

Hahaha! I love the scanned Beehive picture. I looked like a winner when I was a Beehive, too. So maybe you can help them through that really awesome Beehive time in their lives. I love young women's. It's my ultimate favorite calling. I didn't know you could do that broom trick!
