BYU Women's Conference

On Wednesday I flew to Utah.    I was honored and terrified to be asked to speak at BYU Women's Conference on the Time Traps of Technology.  I spoke on Thursday afternoon.  I was so glad that I got it done early so I didn't have to be nervous the whole time and I could actually enjoy part of the conference.

It was so fun to have so many family and friends there to support me!!

Logan, Clark and Cali were there (although Clark had to leave right away to get back to work so missed the photo).  Tricia, Teresa and Emily were there too - which I appreciated so much!!  I have such great sister in law's and nieces in law!!!

Lizzy was also there and she brought me a delicious cupcake from the bakery she is working at!
Cali's good friend Kat who is now living in Provo with her husband came along too.
I shared the hour with Lisa who is works at BYU in the counseling center.  It was so fun to meet her in person and share the podium with her - she did a great job!

I had several blog readers there too and it was so fun to meet them!  Thanks to Heidi who was my personal paparazzi for the event!!  Love the photos she took.
Here I am with Nurse Heidi!  One of the many wonderful people I have met as a result of my blog.
 Another wonderful  blog friend - Patti!

More fun blog friends -
Heidi took some photos as I nervously sat and waited for my session to begin.  Logan and Emily helped keep me calm.

And here I am giving my presentation.
Things went well, I think.  Logan told me I did better than he thought I would so I am going to take that as a compliment.

Logan's friend Lane who is the head video guy for the football team was helping make a video for Women's Conference so he interviewed me and Tricia afterwards -we'll see if we make the TV!!

Tricia, Teresa, Emily, Cali and I headed to Zupa's for lunch aftewards which was so yummy and relaxing!!

Sorry about all the snow- but at least you got a new pair of shoes out of the deal! How's Cali feeling now? Does she miss the wheat?
You did a wonderful job on your talk- Logan is watering down the review! It was super fun to meet you, finally!
