Last night I went to
homemaking, home family and personal enrichment, relief society. It was a lot of fun. We had a getting to know you kind of night with a pot luck salad and dessert dinner first, where I told myself I would only have a salad because I am trying to loose a few, but sadly that didn't go so well. Everything was super yummy.
Then we played a few games that were really fun. We had a bingo game, then "speed friending" and then a candy bar game. For the speed friending we sat at tables placed in a circle and the inside group moved and the outside group stayed put and then every 3 minutes we changed partners. We had a question to talk about during each round and I found out so many neat and fun things. I think even if I had known these sisters for 6 years instead of 6 months it would have still been a night of learning new things. Some of the questions were "what is the weirdest thing you ever ate?", or "what did you dream of being when you were young?", or "where have you been?". It was very very fun. After that everyone drew a candy bar from a bag. If you got a milky way you had to tell something you dreamed about or a goal for the future, if you got a snickers you had to tell an embarrassing or funny story about yourself, if you got an almond joy you told something that made you happy and if you got a kit kat you told something you liked to do in your free time.
I had a milky way and said that the happiest day for me was when Dani went to the temple and made eternal covenants and my goal is to do that 5 more times, once with each my children.
I need to do something like this with the YW, they would love it.
