Update the Update.

Another week down.


But for reals, things are going really well. Let's have a bullet list update, shall we?

o Me and Braedon finally took some engagements. We had been planning on taking some at the Salt Flats for awhile (and also some in Moab when we go next week). and finally were able to go last Saturday. Braedon’s little sister Savanna came with us and was a huge help. The weather was fantastic! It was a lot of fun and I really love how the pictures turned out!

o Along with taking our own engagement pictures comes the responsibility of editing them. I really enjoy editing – but after a while it gets a tiny bit tedious. But again it’s fun to see how all the pictures turn out, so I’m okay with it. Observe:

o Again with all the new pictures I’ve finally been able to start making our guest book. I’m making it through It’s fantastic! I’m having fun putting it together. Hopefully it turns out good.

o Okay enough bullets about pictures.

o Spring Break was last week. UVU is weird and only dose a half week off – but it was so nice to finally be able to catch up on life – clean, do some laundry, etc.

o I go through the Temple on Saturday. So crazy. It seems like I was just making the appointment a few days ago – not a few months ago. How does time go so fast and yet also so slow?

o Moab is next week. So. Extremely. Excited. I have always loved Moab, it really is one of my favorite places to go – add to the fact that me and Braedon will be going with some of (if not the) most amazing people ever. It’s gonna be fantastic.

o I got a 92 on my last Partial Differential Equations test. How did that happen? I think I might just have to get some ice cream to celebrate.

o I just realized that I have some wedding showers coming up – and me and Braedon have still not registered for anything. Hmmm. Maybe we should get on that. :S

o It's Spring. It's warm. I'm staying caught up in school. I'm marrying my best friend in 49 days...

...Life is good. :)



So I entered a contest to win a free engagement session with a photographer - for any of you out there reading this if you wouldn't mind going and voting for me and Braedon, that would be fantastic! (Only one vote per IP address - so use multiple computers if you want to vote more then once!)

Thanks!! :)


March(ing on!)


It's March.

When did that happen?

Oh ya, at midnight last night, huh?

Hmmm. Bullet List time.

  • I have senioritis. Bad. I want to be done with school so much. I know I'm all happy about it being March finally, but it would be nice if it was the end of April instead. Or even the beginning of May... like, May 12th. La sigh.
  • Besides the fact of me having senioritis, I did really well on all my midterms this semester. I usually bomb the first test of any classes (no joke), but I got an 86 on my PDE's test, and a 90 on my Knot Theory test, and I'm pretty sure I'll get at least in the 80's on my Advance Calc 2 test. :)
  • My other two non-related math classes don't even believe in tests. Awesome.
  • While I'm on the subject of school, I would like to make something clear. School takes up almost all my life right now. It sucks, but it will be worth it. But a direct cause of this is I am not the most social of butterflies. Luckily I have wonderful friends who understand this... But I'll still come in contact with people who think they know me and my current situation so well and when I proceed to tell them I'm too busy for something they follow up with something along the lines of: "Oooooh, I see. Have to go spend all your time with Braedon, don't you?". This Bugs. And for many reasons:
    • Reason 1 - I only get to see Breadon for about an hour or two on Wednesday nights, and then on weekends. That's it. And while I may not be the happiest camper about it, we realize it's not so bad and that it will be worth it in the end - and besides there isn't much we can do about it anyways. So I get bugged because I want to be spending more time with Braedon and can't. Thanks for the reminder, jerk.
    • Reason 2 - I work hard for school, and I put in a lot more time then most people do. Sometimes I want that hard work recognized. Them assuming all I do with my life is spend time with Braedon seems to belittle my hard work with school.
    • Reason 3 - Me and Braedon are engaged. We love each other. If it were the case that I wanted to spend any of my extra time with him and not you, isn't that allowed every once in a while? I mean... come on.
    • Reason 4 - The person always thinks they are some extreme wit having made said comment. Don't think you are ever so clever that you can tease me about me being in love and engaged. I've gotten it from a lot more clever a person then you. So you can go eat it. :)
  • I spent entirely too much time on that last bullet.
  • I love the fact that on my way to school the sun is already up. Who wants to start a petition to ban Day Light Savings? Do it Arizona style? Anyone?
  • I've recently acquired an iTouch from a most amazing friend (you know who you are, and you know I love you. -3). It's fantastic. Seriously you guys. I love it. It has already proven to be an extreme time suck... but I don't care, cause I can play scrabble anytime I want. :)
  • I love scrabble.
  • I just finished reading Pride and Prejudice for the who knows how many times. I love that book. It's my comfort book. It's also the book I turn to when I A) don't have another book to go to immediately after I've finished another (because I can't go a day with out a book apparently) and B) when I know that I have a lot of school work or tests coming up, because anytime I'm reading a new book and my school load gets heavier I have an extremely hard time not reading and actually studying for my classes.
  • I tried one of those Neti Pots the other day. Weirdest. Sensation. Ever. But it really works, so I am going to continue to use it until my nose doesn't gush out gallons of goobers a day. :)
  • Me and Braedon went to dinner at a family's home from his mission last night. They obviously are from Missouri but moved to Utah about 6 or 7 months ago. It was really cool to actually meet some people that I've heard so much about. It was a lot of fun to spend some time with them, and they were so nice to me - extremely good for the ego. ;)
  • My parents are putting the house up for sale, and even though it would mean moving twice in a 3 month time period, I hope it sells fast, cause then I'll live closer to Braedon.
  • Yes I'm sappy, and I don't care.
I should stop now - off to do more homework. Till next time!

Loves and hugs. :)
