quite possibly the best day of my whole entire life.

I'M ENGAGED! :)  and I am quite possibly the happiest girl on this planet.  I get to marry my best friend, the hottest kid on the plant!!! haha
Here's the story:
We met in psy 1100 and to be quite honest I thought he was a player and didn't really care to get involved with him.  One day he invited me to go to Zupas for lunch after class with him and I said sure! So we went and had a blast but! he never asked me for my number after so I thought hey this isn't going anywhere.  The next week in class, he put HIS number in my phone so I could bring him leftover pizza after work.  A week after that we went and got frosty's and HE KISSED ME!!! I was literally floating when I walked inside! :) From then on we started talking everyday and by November we were inseperable! :) We went on a trip to Boston over Christmas Break and on the flight home he said... I LOVE YOU!!! :) He had been planning on leaving for the summer to texas to do summer sales and I was DREADING it.  We said our "goodbyes" Sunday night and it was one of the hardest things... little did I know it was all just a set up for this whole proposal thing!  I went to work all day Monday and then that night went out for ice cream with the bestie.  Meanwhile, while I was gone Justin had came over and decorated my room with balloons and on the ends of the balloons were pictures of us, notes, HE IS WE CONCERT TICKETS!, gift cards, and our favorite snacks.  He then made a video of him saying how he wishes he could be here with me but is so grateful that my  mom and sisters were able to put this last surprise together for me.  He then went on to say that there was another surprise waiting for me outside!  Okay now lets back up... I come home from ice cream and headed straight for the garage to grab something out of my car for Alex and lo and behold... Justin is hiding in the laundry room.  I FREAk out and then he tells me to just go upstairs! So I go upstairs as he follows behind me and then wallah!! he proposes :) :)
It didnt' go as planned whatsoever but was probably more perfect than anything I could ever imagine! I love him a lot and am so so excited to spend forever with him! 8/18/12 is the big day! The wedding planning has just begun and it's so fun! I love him :) :)

I was obviously quite surprised and confused... hence the "OH MY GOSH" 5 billion times! haha :)

promise yourself.

"Promise yourself: to be so strong that nothing can disturb your piece of mind; to make all your friends feel like there is something worthwhile in all of them; to think of only the best and to expect only the best; to forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater acheivements of the future; to give so much time to improving yourself that you have no time to criticise others; to be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble; to live in the faith that the whole world is on your side, so long as you are true to the best that is in you."

come what may && love it.

I love this video. I highly recommend watching it.

change.

Today I stalked myself on facebook... sounds weird I know. But as I was looking through all of my old pictures I realized how much my life has changed. How many things have come and gone and how blessed I am. There are days when I miss high school. I miss running to wendy's daily and getting frostys with josh (who is now leaving on a mission in 2 weeks to NYC), kaleb (leaving on a mission in June to Ukraine), and kilee (lives in Orem), or even the sonic drives with kilee, I miss having mac and cheese talks and our favorite cran-grape juice with katelyn (school schedules are complete opposites), I miss those summer days when Lynzi (who is getting married in about 2 months) and I would go to lagoon, I miss "fruit shopping" with Mckell (now in Cedar City) and Megan (livin in Logan), I miss going to 7 peaks daily with Alex Mickelsen (who now lives in Idaho), but then I take a step back and look at where I am now and I love it. I do miss all of it but things change and people grow up.  It's all part of life... right?



 needless to say I've been blessed throughout my life with AMAZING friends :)
