The Cats Out of The Bag

Enough people know by now, so I guess I'll just announce it: I'm going on a mission! My papers have already officially been turned in for a few days now. I'll find out where I go in 2 weeks. I'm SO excited and can't wait to see where I go--whether it be Idaho, Japan, or wherever! I know it'll be an experience that I will cherish my whole life and I'm really excited to share and preach the Gospel for 18 months.

So since I have 2 weeks till I officially find out, I might as well pass the time by playing a fun game that involves you. This game has one question that you need to answer: where to YOU think I'll go?

what the?! youre going on a mission??!!! daaaaaaamn girl! wait, can i say that on your blog about going on a mission? eh, i dont care.
my vote is you will go to MADAGASCAR!!! cause they only send the coolest people there.

OH wait, once i heard that they pick all the super pretty girls to go to the temple square mission (ya know, they gotta represent!) so i wouldnt be surprised if you went there either cause youre like, the prettiest person i know.
just some thoughts. AWESOME!!! ill write to you.

megs said...

p.s. please dont dress like the normal sister missionaries.

i trust your fashion sense, dont get sucked in by their plain attire!!!!... just some more thoughts by me. :)

Morgan said...

Haha, I'm definately going to spice up the missionary attire. AND I've already stocked up on MAC and Bobby Brown makeup palettes--in mostly neutral colors, but GORGEOUS neutrals. Makeup's my thing, so I'm definately going to have the prettiest makeup that has ever been seen on a sister missionary. Carmindy's 5 Minute Face anyone? Haha

And I've actually gotten A LOT of people saying Temple Square. Haha, even President Thornock said that--and he said that he's NEVER gotten an impression about ANY missionary about where they will go...and imagine how many missionaries he's interviewed over the years...wowza.

If that's true, then you can come visit me and I'll show you around Temple Square!

Monica said...

Yeah! I am so excited for you!!! You will be the most wonderful missionary! I still remember when I was camp director and you were Laurisa's YCL...you were so amazing how you would wake up early to read your scriptures before the girls woke up! I will never forget your leadership and example!
Maybe you'll go china, taiwan somewhere that you'll speak mandarin--because you are so smart!

Monica Petersen said...

Still can't believe that you are going on a Mission.. what an experience that will be! I guess that you will go to Brazil- now that would be quite fun!! Guess we will see :)
Congrats!! Let's all (cousins and Aunts) do lunch/dinner before you leave. Love you <3

megs said...

thank you for reassuring me about the makeup situation. i feel alot better and more comfortable knowing you will remain true to your roots and look SO good everyday out in the field. rock on morgan. ps i love the idea of you going somewhere totallllly exotic (like madagascar hahaha) BUT... temple square would be choice for my own personal benefit:)

krystal said...

Chelsea Robson said...

you know, as I read this and saw the picture with it, I got the Temple square vibe myself. But You'll be able to rock where ever you go! I'm SOOO excited for you!

Love you!

Rosemary said...

Tim and Niccole said...

Holy crap that is awesome Morgan! I had no idea you were going to serve a mission! You will be an amazing missionary. Haha all of the Elders at the MTC are going to be in love with you!

I think you will go Asian for sure...maybe Taiwan.

Basarabas said...

Way to Go! That's so exciting!

I bet you're gonna go to Scranton! hehe

Where ever you go you'll be great!

IzeOfLight said...

Wait, President Thornock is your stake president? His son, Rob, is a good friend of mine! How fun!

I'm guessing somewhere in New York.

Melissa said...

Morgan, no way! Thats so exciting! I thought visitor center mission at first too. I vote east coast..like NY or NJ though. You will make an awesome missionary!! (Just don't go stealing people's parking spaces in your mission car ;) )
