Our Colors are like the best Bright Orange, Yellow and Pink. I'm stocked about all the planning. But I'll keep you up dated on everything. peace.


2 more days till Christsmas

Sorry I'm such a slacker. With family and work i haven't had time but i guess i can't say much cause my future sister-in-laws have had time to blog while they are visiting. But we have had a fun filled week. we went to a family Christmas Party and mike meet every one on my dads side (minus a few). The Kids lined up for mike to play with them and they all loved him. He even had to sit on Santa's Lap. Sunday we hung with our families and had a birthday lunch with my dad. It was fun to meet everyone i haven't gotten any pictures of all of us yet but i will no worries. On Monday we had FHE with my family. We took Guitar Hero over to my house and everyone was rocking out! Even my mom and dad. it was quite interesting. Now we are just chillin and having a good old time.

7 days till christmas, 1 or 2 till the Terry's, 1 till Mikey and HAPPY BIRTHDAY KARINA!

Well today is Miss Karina's 12 birthday. that is so weird. i remember when i was turning 12. But Karina is so stinking funny (ask anyone). She is the sweetest thing but can be a brat. She has changed so much in the last 12 years. when she was a baby she was a chunk, a really cute chunk. she had these BIG brown eyes (still has them she just grew into them) that we know my grandma and grandpa Christensen picked out. Now she is little miss skinny and little miss smarty pants. we love her and our lives wouldn't be as exciting with out here. Happy Birthday Rina!

8 days till christmas, 2 days till the Terry's, 2 Days till Mikey, 7 till Karina is 12

It was so good to see the browns (minus Steve). i missed those guys. I can't wait to see mike and the Terry's on Friday. this week just seems to drag on (like any other week) because mike is gone. But I'll get over it. here is the quote for the day
Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is
softer and more beautiful." ~ Norman Vincent Peale (1898-1993), American
Protestant religious leader, author.


9 days till christmas, no more days till the browns, 3 more days till the Terry's 3 more days till mikey.

this is just a sweet little thought. hope you enjoy

It is the personal thoughtfulness, the warm human awareness, the reaching
out of the self to one's fellow man that makes giving worthy of the Christmas
spirit." ~ Isabel Currier.


10 days till christms, 1 day till the Brown's , 4 days till the Terry's and 4 days till Mikey

Mike (sadly) had to go back to work this morning. It's always hard to leave him even more now that we are engaged. But it should be a good week cause everyone is coming home except Kyla :( we are going to miss you a ton. On a brighter note Daisey Frankie Steve and Crystal are going to be here tomorrow :D and then Hannah Emma Russ and Christa will be here Friday and so will Mikey. we have a lot going on so I'll keep y'all updated on things. Our quote of the day it goes a little like this.
This is the message of Christmas: We are never alone.
~ Taylor Caldwell (1900-1985), English novelist.


ENGAGED!!! oh and 11 days till christmas

Mike and I are finally engaged. we are so excited to start all the planning (well at least i am). So everyone has been asking about the story. so here it is with a few pictures.
On Saturday December 13th we went with his family up to Logan to a voice male concert. It was really fun to see Amie and Scott and to laugh and be entertained by Voice Male. We went and ate at the Firehouse (a pizza place up there) then we went to Salt lake. Traffic was horrific. we parked at the Gateway mall. We rode the Trax up to Temple Square and took a carriage ride with his family. It was like the perfect night with all the snow softly falling. Then we went for a walk on temple square we left the group and found a nice quiet place. He told me to reach in his pockets to keep my hands warm and in the pocket was the ring. He got down on his knee and asked me to marry him. I guess i was some what shocked cause i didn't take off my glove. He told me to take off my glove and he put the ring on my finger and i said yes. We walked back to where the family was and told them and started calling my family.

it's kind of sad that i stand on something and he is still a foot taller then me.

Just before he Proposed.

My ring. He picked it out all by himself. (i told him i wanted white gold and a princess cut diamond.)


15 days till Christmas! and i'm done with finals!

Good luck to everyone who is still cramming for finals! I'm done with this semester and man does it feel good. It has been a long awaited finish!

To the American People: Christmas is not a time or a season but a state of mind. To cherish peace and good will, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas. If we think on these things, there will be born in us a Savior and over us will shine a star sending its gleam of hope to the world."

~ Calvin Coolidge (1872-1933), American president. Presidential message (December 25, 1927).

I love wrapping presents and i love it when there is a ton of ribbon. (i like to play with it). So mike, crystal, and my family look out for very ribbon-ated presents.


20 Days till Christmas!!

I love the Christmas Carol.. well i love Christmas movies so here is a quote from "A Christmas Carol"
I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys."
- Charles Dickens, "A Christmas Carol"



Just chillin

8 month update!!!

It has already been 8 months that Mike and I have been dating. It's crazy how fast time goes when your having the time of your life. I'm at work right now so this post wont have any pictures but I'll put some on when i have time at home. But Mike and I have been together for 8 wonderful months now.
SOO... I don't think i have shared our story so here it goes. It's kind of long but we like it. (and this is my side of the story)
After my senior year i went on a senior trip to Nauvoo. on the last stretch i was riding with some parents and we started talking about there son and one of his friends (Mike) she suggested to me that i should go on a date with him but i said it's his job to ask. Not thinking anything of it till he added me on facebook ( i know facebook lame). We started talking and finally i gave him my number cause i wouldn't have my computer for the weekend. He text me and i was so excited, i mean what girl wouldn't, some cute guy texting me was just so exciting. we started texting a lot and then one weekend he came down and we went on our first date (El Saltos and a movie at his house). By now it's March 2008, I waited patiently for him to hold my hand. It took him a month to hold my hand ( i know we move slow). that was April 18Th, don't ask how i remember i just do. About a week later he kissed me, It's so funny how you can think about it and feel how it was and where you were and what you were doing. We spent the whole summer together. During the summer i had a birthday i will never forget. Mike and I had roast that his mom made and it was so good. HE made me a jello cake and gave me a CTR ring. that night we just laid under the stars talking and playing the question game. It was my turn and i asked him " what have you been dying to tell me but haven't had the guts to ask?" I had no idea what the answer would be but i wanted to know so i kept bugging him. after about 20 mins. of begging and moving twice cause the sprinklers came on he whispered in my ear, "I Love you." I was so happy and shocked to hear him say that. I looked at him and gave him a kiss and said "I love you too." I know so like in the movies but it is something i will always remember. When came time for school to start up again things got a little hard. he had to go back up to Logan and we wouldn't be able to see each other as much as we would have liked. Each week has been hard and the same times we would have to go 2-3 weeks with out seeing each other which was really hard. now the semester is almost over (FINALLY) and it has made us so much stronger as couple.
I am so glad that i have mike in my life. I don't know what i would do with out him. He has helped me so much in the 8 months that I'm sure he doesn't even know about. I'm so thankful that he is understanding when it comes to me being an idiot or a dork. And i know he will always be by my side. Thanks for putting up with me honey i know it's hard!


Give Thanks!

I sent out a question through our wonderful technology called text messaging that asked.

What are you thankful for and why? I found that many people are thankful for their families and for the gospel. I got response that families give life meaning (RT), they help each other threw everything (TK), Because with out them i wouldn't be where i am today (MS), because i would be a gutter somewhere and wouldn't have anyone (LB), Because if i lost everything else in this life i know i will always have them and can count on them (DR.T). Families are so important and if done right families can be together forever. I am so thankful that i have the family i have because of everything they do. With out them nothing else matters. I am so thankful for my friends and those who stand by me. I am thankful for my BEST FRIEND, Mikey, He has helped me so much and makes me so much stronger. I am thankful for the hard times i go through because they make me stronger. I'm thankful for the Gospel because with out i wouldn't be who i am and i wouldn't know the things i know. I'm thankful for the atonement so i can be with my Heavenly Father again. I am thankful for Christ and all that he has done for. He is my older brother who i know will always be there for me. I am thankful for Temples so that i can be with the man of my dreams for time and all eternity. I'm so Thankful for technology so that can communicate with those who are not near me and so that i can share my feelings like this. Thank you for all that you have done.

So a funny story that never happens
SO i was coming down the stairs at my grandmas. At the bottom of the stairs is a door. well i took a little hop to the next step and Hit my head on top of the door. YES ME hit my head. that never happens. but that is my funny story. it's like the falling up the stairs thing.


Busy weeks... what's new?

So my Rode Trip Weekend was so much fun. I got to see Megan before she got married which was nice. (carbon also won their volleyball game.)
Me and my mom at the Delta Game

Friday (October 3rd) i went shopping before meeting up with Mike for his mission reunion. It was really fun to just go shopping by myself for once. The reunion was really good. I enjoyed meeting all the people Mike Served with on his mission. I also got to see my cousin Kiarra! She is so cute.
Saturday (October 4Th) we went up to Conference. Mike came with my family. ( i have to say my sisters really like Mike and get along with him so well) Conference was awesome, i learned a lot and like many others have tons of things to work on. I really liked Elder Worthlins talk about Laughing things off was one of my favorites. He is an amazing man.

Driving up (don't worry we weren't driving my dad was)
Waiting for conference to start
Sunday (October 5Th) Mike and i made breakfast and watched conference at his house. Then we went to my house for dinner with my family. We also studied for a STUPID tests. I made some flipping amazing cookies (if i do say so myself).

They were so good.

This weekend was really good also.
Saturday (October 11th) My best friend Megan Sherman got married. I was so excited for her and Steve. They are so cute together. He was so sweet, holding her dress while they walked, holding every door (like always) and Making sure she didn't fall down the hill while they walked around the temple.
Mr & Mrs Huber!
she was so pretty

Sunday (October 12th) was just a good day till Mike had to leave. It didn't help that my other friend was a retard and made him wait and then just said "my mom can take me to Salt lake." it's a long story that i don't want to remember.

wow crazy
SO cute
They are so crazy


Road Trip Weekend.

School is so lame! I'm sure all of you can agree with me on that. if not there is something seriously wrong with you. I will admit i am only taking 4 classes but they take up all my time. plus work, i go in when i can and when volleyball is over I'll be working part time in the afternoons. sometimes i wonder where the day has gone. but all things considering this week should be a good one. Monday went really smooth. Today (Tuesday) wasn't to bad till i found out some money was stolen out of my car. I wasn't to happy with that and my poor volleyball girls got the brunt of it. (sorry girls) Tomorrow (Wednesday) i get my upgrade on my phone and I'm super excited. My girls also have a game tomorrow in Huntington so hopefully we come out on top. Right now they are 6-1 I'm so proud of them. Thursday i am going on a road trip with my mom to Delta to watch my sister play volleyball and to see Megan before she gets married. Friday i get to go to Provo to go shopping and to a reunion with Mike. it should be really fun. Saturday We are going to Conference with my family and going to chill with them. I'm not sure how Sunday is going to go down but I'm excited. I'll get pictures up from my Road Trip weekend.

Here is my new pic of me and mike. We can usually be found chillin in his basement being retarded, studying, or watching TV/video games/ movies
