BYU and Three Cheesecakes Later

I had so much fun at BYU Women's Conference I thought I'd post some pictures!

Here are me and my sisters-in-law, waiting in line to see my favorite artist, Liz Lemon Swindle. We had just heard an amazing talk by Julie B. Beck on strengthening families. Do I look more spiritual to you?
Don't know how to rotate pictures...sorry. But here's me standing in front of my first book in the BYU Bookstore! Hooray! The reason I have that double chin is because I just finished pigging out on THREE pieces of Cheesecake at the top of the Joseph Smith Memorial Building. Ugh!

My sisters in law forcing me to stand in front of a sign with my name on it. I'm really nervous before I have to go sign books.

Me signing books next to Whitney award winner, Aubrey Mace. She is the sweetest person I have ever met! The compliment I received the most as people checked out my book was, "You don't look insane!"

To sum up my experience...Julie B. Beck inspired me to have ten more children, and John Bytheway helped me realize that I must learn how to text message so that I can communicate with the ones I have. See honey? Women's conference is worth the sacrifice! Now when can I get my new Iphone?

It's so fun to hear about women's conference since I didn't get to go this year. I love it. It looks like you had a great time.

I can't imagine the book you'd write if you had ten more kids, but I loved Confessions of a Completely Insane Mother. Thanks for the chance to review it. I hope it soars. Moms need a little more laughter and appreciation these days, and your book dishes up a healthy helping of both.
