It's a small world

speaking of songs getting stuck in my head.  Some experiences (and locations) come with soundtrack in my mind.

While the International branch that we attended in Moscow is similar to our ward in Dubai in that the congregation attendance dwindles in the summer months (most ex-pats go home)
I am happy to report that I've still got it.  I haven't lost my touch of being able to find someone I know, wherever I go*.  Even if the odds were against me! 

*this isn't totally true, but many of you like to claim that it is, so we're going with it.  

At church I ran into (here's 4 again)
  1. The brother of one of my (our) very fun, very creative, upbeat, hilarious friends in Palo Alto (who is also the son of one of my favorite professors at BYU).
  2. A cousin of another of of our highly admired, stunningly gorgeous and well respected friends in Palo Alto.
  3. The former boyfriend of a former roommate of mine.  at BYU.  Freshman year. (ya, that one took us a while to figure out why we were looking so familiar to each other).
  4. AND the former roommate of a former boyfriend of mine!
so fun!  
now if I could just get the song out of my head before bed tonight!


  1. It sounds like you are living a crazy life. I am very impressed with finding 4 connections in Russia.

  2. what great pics of the fam in Moscow, Crazy! Sounds like quite the adventure, I can't believe you braved it on your own one day, definately Supermom! The scrabble things were so easy, but might be hard for you to find all the things you need, I had to even order a few online. I just googled scrabble tile pendants I think and came up with an awesome tutorial, let me know if you can't find it and I'll look for it. So easy and fun!

  3. hey! I was your roommate freshman year at BYU. Who was the boyfriend?

  6. How fun. I love our little well connected Mormon world!

  7. speaking of "its a mall world..." i got a job at the disney store...
