Guys!!!! It's coming. My wedding day is finally coming!!!! These are my current countdowns right now:
Tomorrow is my last day working in Logan. This is bittersweet. I have finally started to really love it up here. Me and my cute roommates when out for sushi last night! It was great! My coworkers are super fun and we enjoy each day (most of the time).
2 Days until I move back home. Which is also bittersweet. I love my family, so much! But..I've gotten used to being on my own and not really have anyone telling me what to do. SO that should be an interesting but fun few weeks!
3 days until our engagement pictures! SO excited to work with Miss Mallory Renee on that. And to see how they turn out. (Now if we could just get Jerms and I to smile in the same picture instead of making ugly faces, we'll be golden!)
5 days until I start at my new branch, that I am SOOOOOOO excited for! It's downtown and then in a few weeks we will be moving the branch to City Creek! WHAT! It's going to rock.
50 days! FIFY DAYS until I get sealed for time and all eternity to my other half! Holy crap I CANNOT wait! I am praying that they fly by because i'm super ready to just start our lives together!

106 days until my cute sister and her fiance get married! And then my poor parents will officially be empty nesters. I don't know how they're going to handle that.

Guys. Seriously. There's so many good things to look forward to! I can't wait to see where the next year takes us all!

So I know it's been a while since I've posted, I know. I'm sorry! I've just been a tad bit busy with wedding plans. They're coming along nicely! And we officially have less than 2 months till we get married!!!! I can't wait! We have our reception center booked, we have the temple set, we have my dress, and the moms have their dresses, we have our delicious cake picked out, our amazing photographer booked (check her out here), things are coming along nicely. However, we still have SOOO much to do. It's getting stressful, but it will all work out and if it doesn't all come together perfectly, it will make for a funny story in a few years, right? That's what I keep telling myself..haha I'm so grateful for all the help that we've gotten from family and friends! Especially my amazing mom! She rocks!
One thing that has taken a lot of stress off of my list is getting a job down in Salt Lake. Since that's where we will be living I decided to start looking for openings within the same employer sooner rather than later so I wouldn't be freaking out if I didn't get anything. And the branch I will be working at is going to be in such an amazing location, it's brand new and the manager is amazing. It's seriously so great! I can't wait! I only have one more week in the freezing Cache Valley and I'm not too terribly sad. I will miss my roommates but...in the end I will have the best roommate ever! YAY!
And on an even more exciting note....
My big sister/best friend got engaged last night!!!!!!!! We're so excited to have Levi as part of the family. We love him! Jerms and I got to help him plan/execute the proposal. It was so much fun! He surprised her and picked her up from work and brought her to the cheesecake factory to get appetizers (That was where their first official date was). She had no idea we were going to be there with them. And then we headed to my brother's house where my fantastic sister and sister in law had made/set up a candlelit dinner for us all. And as we all were sitting down to eat, cute little nervous Levi pulled the ring out! It was so cute to be there for them! And then we all went out to frozen yogurt and just had a good night. It was simple and perfect for them. I am so excited for them!!!!! YAY! Fun part for my mom...their wedding is 8 weeks after mine and Jerms'. Poor parents. And my mom works full time. And is the primary president in our ward. Oh the stress/joys/fun.
Sammi and I have joked for the past 5 1/2 years that we would get married 5 weeks apart because that's what my brother and sister did. So we always thought it would be so funny to do that again. But we didn't actually think it would happen. Sorry mom. We really do love you!!
I love seeing how our family is growing. Each person that is brought into our crazy bunch fits in perfectly and adds so much personality and we all get along great! AH! Life is fun!
I can't wait to get married to my best friend! 56 days!!!!!!

Happy Birthday little man! I can't believe you're 1! I fall in love with those BIG blue eyes more each time I see you! I love your laid back personality, your cute constant giggle and your big kisses. I can't wait to see how much you grow in the next year, and to watch your personality show through. But I don't want you to get any bigger, I love this age that you're at!
I love you WyWy!

So long, 2012!

Yes, I know I am a week late here. But..better late than never? Is that a good way to start the new year? Probably not, but hey, that's how it goes..
2012, you were a pretty great year for me. Started out rough, but ended better than any of my previous 22 years! In the past 12 months, I met a boy, moved 2 hours away from that boy, but moved out on my own and felt like an adult, fell in love with that boy, did the whole long distance thing, hated it. Loved him. Had more emotioanal breakdowns than I care to admit. Got engaged after 5 months from our first date! Now we're planning a wedding!  One nephew turned 1 year old, I got a 2nd nephew, and I fell in love with those little boys even more each time I saw them. My relationships with my family grew and I realize now more than ever the importance of family. I watched 2 of my best friends fall in love and get engaged, the other best friend had the cutest baby boy!
2013, you will bring me the best day of my life, when I get to be sealed to my handsome fiance for time and all eternity. You will bring the same joy to 2 of my best friends and my sister best friend (though it's still unofficial.)  You will bring me another move. The joy of continuing to watch my nieces and nephews grow. I will officially gain 2 families. I will get my dog back (sorry Zack and Kenz, she's coming with us!!)! And I will fall in love more every day with that boy of mine!
2012 will be a hard year to beat, but I can't wait to see what else 2013 brings for us!

Over the last few days, I have seen many acts of kindness that have almost brought me to tears. (Only reason I hold back is because they happen while I'm at work.) At the financial institution that I work at, there was a memorial account opened for Emilie Parker, one of the little angels who was so quickly taken from this Earth Friday morning. Her family is from Utah and they flew her body home on Tuesday so that she can be buried at home. It has overwhelmed me with joy and humility to see people coming in to make donations to help her family, whether it is the $5 that would buy their lunch, the $25 that would buy their own child a new Christmas gift or $100 that they so kindly donate without asking for anything in return. Whether they grew up with Emilie's dad or just know the trouble and heartache of burying a child or just wish to help, people have amazed me with their kindness.
Then yesterday, the customer that I was helping happened to over hear a conversation that the customer at the next window was having with my coworker. I have no reason to believe these women knew each other. The customer I was helping asked me to withdraw some money from her account, proceeded to hand that money to the young lady at the next window, wished her a Merry Christmas and was on her way. The look on the young lady's face was priceless and again my heart was filled with joy.
At this time of year, with all of the tragedies that have been occuring near our homes or throughout the world, it is amazing and comforting to me that so many people still have good hearts and willing to help those who are in need of a loving hand. My faith has been restored in humanity.

If you would like information about where and how to donate to Emilie Parker's account, feel free to contact me!

Here's to you, boo!

So, I've officially been dating this boy for 6 months! And in the next 6 months, I will be married to him!! I can't believe how fantastic it's been. It's been the best 6 months of my life! I've fallen in love with my best friend. He will be my partner for eternity and the father of my children. We will have all of our firsts together, all of our lasts together and a whole life to learn more about each other and grow as a couple and as a family. I'm so grateful that he is in my life and I don't know how I ever survived without him. He can make me smile when all I want to do is cry. He still loves me when I do cry, over stupid things. He's a hopeless romantic and let's me constantly look at puppies and just beg for one! He loves me through my crazy ideas of having a pet polar bear and moving to South Africa. He loves me through my tempers and through my huge bursts of energy when I'm obnoxious. He loves me when I'm high maintenance and ask him to do anything/everything for me. He puts up with me when I make him watch stupid TV shows, make him listen to music he doesn't like, and when I torture myself window shopping. I can't imagine anyone more perfect for me and I can't wait to spend forever with him!!

One of our first dates. I kick his butt at bowling :)

Definitely a favorite picture of us
I love you honey bunches!!! :)
