I decided I really don't like moving. My family was all really helpful, but now I'm in the process of putting everything away and it's going pretty slowly. It's hard to get motivated to start, but then again I'm tired of tripping over bags and digging through things... Also I know myself and if I don't get it taken care of before school starts on Monday then I will be living out of boxes for months, maybe until we move again!

Anyway, on to a happier subject. Our wedding was wonderful. I couldn't stop smiling all day long.
Everything went so smoothly and was so beautiful. Thanks to everyone that was there to celebrate with us and to everyone else that sent happy thoughts and prayers our way. Hopefully sometime not to far away we'll have pictures to share.

Panama was also amazing. We had clear sunny weather everyday. We got to go on some awesome tours, snorkel a lot, surf just a little, eat good food and sleep in! I highly recommend Panama to anyone looking for someplace new to travel. Just remember your bug repellent because my legs are looking pretty funky right now.

I'm getting married in the morning!

I've had the tune from that song from My Fair Lady going through my head all day...So crazy! We made it 13o+ days. Let me tell you back in August I thought this day would never get here, but time has gone by surprisingly fast with school, work and wedding planning. Thanks to everyone that came out to be with us tomorrow! Hopefully we'll have pictures to put up for the rest of you sometime soon...

Oh, and Merry Christmas since I'll be in Panama and won't be able to tell anyone!

Done with finals!

This has been a busy week with all the studying, working and packing I've had to do. It feels so good to be done. Only one more semester of finals till Nick and I are both done with BYU! We're headed down to Vegas tonight and can't wait to see everyone on Saturday.

I love this month, and not just because we are getting married! I love Christmas lights, I'm seriously a hazard on the road because I am so easily distracted by pretty shiny things. My aunt sent out a picture a little bit ago that I loved, so before I explain here it is...

This made me laugh out loud because it reminded me of my family. They never ever want to put up Christmas lights. Too much time, effort, etc. At least these people managed the ditto!

Anyway, everything else is good. We are just trying to get through all our end of the semester school projects/papers/tests/finals in the next 2 weeks and then home to be married! And of course after that we'll get a week in Panama to relax. I CAN'T WAIT!

quarter of a century!

Nick turned 25 today! Yep that's one quarter century... I'm marrying an old man, and I can't wait! 39 days in case anyone else was wondering or keeping track.

We had fun for his birthday tonight, stuffed ourselves at sushi ya with some of his best friends. Everything was delicious. Except for the weird mountain roll that somehow appeared on our plate everytime. I don't know how we managed to choke down 5 of those.

Happy Nevada Day!

I'm oh so sad I wasn't home to celebrate this year. But my little brother was so kind to remind me that he got the day off of school and was thoroughly enjoying it! Oh, and Happy Halloween too! So sad we're not dressing up this year, but the Real Salt Lake game is going to be awesome too.

my new favorite way to waste time!

Here it is...
Its helping me improve my boggle skills immensely, so watch out.

This is my old favorite way to waste time:
This website will always be a favorite, it played an important role in the beginning of our relationship.

I watch too much of it... It's getting to be a problem. I have too many shows that I follow weekly and I can't keep up with all of them, even when I spend almost all my time at work on hulu. Plus having DVR has allowed me to add to my list of shows...what will I do in December when its taken away from me? Hopefully get a life of my own?

Here's a list of everything I watch just in case you were wondering:
Big Bang Theory
So You Think You Can Dance
Project Runway
America's Next Top Model
Grey's Anatomy
Private Practice
The Hills (I'm pretty embarassed about this one)
Modern Family (this is my most recent's probably the funniest new show on tv. If you haven't seen it then you should probably go check it out.)

We are both just staying busy with school and counting down for dec 19th! All we have left to do is the invitations, which we should be ordering this weekend. Crazy.

So just to share a random fact. I love Halloween. It's my favorite holiday. (yes even more favorite than Christmas) We've picked out our first matching costumes, and we're planning our first haunted house trip of the season. I can't wait.

our first near death experience as a couple

Dana enjoyed this.  It scared me, maybe you can see the fear in my eyes.  I fell off nearly every time we went fast.  We may have to invest in a Nick-sized tube with some wedding money.
