Baby Blessing

My insanely beautiful niece was blessed over the weekend. It was such a joyous occasion and I am so grateful I was able to attend. I hope I didn't monopolize holding her too much! I truly fell in love. Before I left, Adrian said, "Now, don't come back baby hungry!"

Sorry, honey, I tried... :)

My sister makes a wonderful mom. I am so impressed at her maturity and her ability to be so nurturing, organized, creative, and gorgeous all at the same time!

We have changed the venue for the wedding reception to an indoor/outdoor location. It will be held on the evening of June 19 at the Pack Home in This Is The Place Park. We are feeling really great about this change because it takes away the fear of having a rained out party! But I still get the garden feel I really wanted.

My mom has stayed up here for a few extra days after the blessing to help with wedding plans. This has been so helpful! You never grow too old to stop needing your mom! She has totally put things into action and in a few short days, things are finally coming together.

I am so in love and so excited to be with my gentle, creative, righteous man for all eternity!

Final Stretch

We are moving into crunch time as the wedding quickly approaches! I love it because every day, it seems that much more real! It is actually happening!

A client of Adrian's is renting out his home, as he and his wife and children are moving into a new place. This week, we will be going over for dinner to take a look. It is located in Orem, which is perfect for Adrian's job and my schooling. Also, a home would be a major plus because that gives my dogs an entire backyard to play.

Our engagement photos are scheduled for April 2. We are already joking about preparing for all of the "lovey dovey" poses. He and I interact like best friends most of the time, so I am guessing a lot of our pictures will turn out to be very candid and fun.

I recently got hired to begin teaching hip hop at a second school, Dixon Middle School, in Provo. My first day is tomorrow. I am so excited to work with another group of kids. Their passion and energy levels always impress and inspire me!

Adrian is going to UVU in the morning to look into the police academy. He would like to consider that as another option in addition to PTA school. Either way, he is beginning in August. He has made that committment! I am so proud of him. He is the most determined person I have ever met in my life.

Adrian makes me laugh every day. Most things he says I feel like I should write down. He is that romantic. In fact, last night we were doing a pizza and a movie double date with my roommate and her guy friend, and Adrian said to me, "Tash, you are the most beautiful thing about that ring on your finger." That is nothing out of the ordinary for him! I get love notes and text messages expressing similar affections almost constantly. I could not be any more blessed.

Have a memorable week! (I am finding that making memories on a daily basis is quite rewarding...)
