Blogging is quite therapeutic. And addicting!
I have actually been experiencing withdrawals. Life is fantastic but sometimes tends to move at lightning speed! It is so worth it to take the time to write it down, however, because remembering these things down the road will be priceless.
I just read the last couple of entries to Adrian and he loves it. He is so cute. We went to the single's ward in Sandy together today and it was so nice to sit next to him during the sacrament. Since I wasn't teaching Relief Society today, we decided to visit his family.
Wedding plans are developing quite nicely. Adrian's ring came in and it is gorgeous, if I do say so myself. Can't wait to have it on his finger! I still need to get it engraved with a special little surprise. The inside of my ring is special too. There are two stones- a diamond, and a ruby, to signify our births! :)
The colors are officially: lavender, cream, and rose pink as an accent color. The dress is PURCHASED! It is cream colored as is my veil, which has bleached peacock feathers on the broach! I am having a matching bolero jacket made to fit the vintage theme that is beginning to emerge. My dream is to have a bouquet of wild flowers and for my cake to have a similar "feel" about it. Adrian might even wear a high colored button-up under his tux.
I have found a wonderful engagement photographer who also designs and prints wedding annoucements. Check her out here:
Also, for those of you who are unaware of our wedding website, please view it! And don't forget to sign the guestbook:
Last Sunday was my first to teach Relief Society. It was an intimidating experience, because we have plenty of wonderful returned missionaries, but I am so grateful for the opportunity to stretch myself in this way. My bishop came in to listen and even shot me a thumbs up sign near the end. I learned a lot about what I will do differently next time, but I guess you can't even figure that out unless you try! Last Sunday was also Valentine's Day. I spent it with my sweetheart, of course. The night before, we went to the Cheesecake Factory with another couple and completely indulged! (I know, it was totally off my diet!)
This week I did a LOT of cardio with my roommate Salinda, as well as plenty of weight lifting, thanks to my fiance and my trainer. I am feeling sore, but very excited for the next few months! I also began teaching hip hop at Orem Junior High for their after school 4H program. I can't even begin to express how much fun this is for me! They are adorable, quick learners, and so eager to work hard! I love being able to continue enjoying my passion for dancing, even if it is just dipping my toe in the water.
Adrian and I had another "first" together last night. We went to a sporting event! Neither of us are huge fans of watching games, but we went with some friends and it ended up being a great night and a super fun atmosphere! Who knew the Utah Flash had so many die hard fans!?!?
Things get more real every day. I still look at my future husband and feel like I am dreaming sometimes. I can't BELIEVE how lucky I am. I am spending eternity with the finest there is. I am so grateful for him and the beginnings of our journey together.
Please contact me with your address if you would like an invitation. We are eager to share our special day with as many people as possible!
We love you all.
and Adrian...he sends his love from the couch ;)
