"We’re all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutual weirdness—and call it love—true love.” -Dr. Suess
Our honeymoon was to Oahu Hawaii. It was lots and lots of fun. Most of all it was nice just being able to get away from everything and just be together. I loved being able to spend five strait days with my wife and we got to get to know each other even better. Since we have been home we have done nothing but play catch up with school (especially Tiffany) and we have been trying to get thank you cards out and also trying to get our apartment put together. Once we bring some order to our lives we will be much more social. We recently got all decked out for the UofU Blackout game on Halloween. It was a blast because we got hooked up with free tickets on the front row of the MUSS (thanks Stin and Sarah). We have hardly even thought about the up and coming holidays because of all those wonderful final tests and projects that seem to spoil them every year. We are also very grateful for family and all of the help that they constantly provide us. We should get lots of posts with more pictures on the way soon.
I have been fortunate enough to have two wonderful Bridal showers!
The first one was hosted by Hillary and she did and awesome job! It was one for both Mitch and I so he was there too! The food was excellent and I got alot of great gifts and met tons of new people in Mitch's ward! Sadly, I do not have any pictures from this event so I will have to get some from Hillary!
My second shower was also wonderful, and it was hosted by Jenny (my cousin) and my Mother. The food there was delicious too and I felt so spoiled with how generous people were in the gifts from both showers!
We also played a game where they asked me questions about mitch, and every question I got wrong, I had to put a piece of bubble yum in my mouth!! I ended up with 14 pieces in my mouth!!! But they asked a total of 42 questions and I only missed 14 so I figure I could have done worse! I dont think I could have fit one more piece in my mouth!
I have been horrible at updating this thing!!! I have been crazy busy!
I have some posts coming soon regarding Bridal showers and My bridal pictures from my awesome photographer Brooke! But for now, here is sneek peak of the bridals along with the ones I have added to the layout :-)
We have now been engaged almost a month! It has been so fun planning our wedding. We actually have gotten most of the wedding plans all squared away! We have been really booking it on getting those all figured out because we wanted to get as much done as we could before school started. We did an awesome job, because school starts next week and most of the big things are all figured out. We love being engaged and its been so much fun! Being engaged is so different from dating. It is way better than dating but at the same time we are super anxious for October Eighth to come. It can't come soon enough! :) We're ready to start our lives together! I love his family and have had so much fun getting to know his family more and more every day. They have all been so helpful in the wedding planning. His parents are so sweet and his sister Hillary already treats me like a sister. :) I have been very blessed that they have been so warm and welcoming to me!
Our engagement story is a pretty funny one. Mitch did an awesome job. It was totally unexpected! We had been talking about marriage, but I wasnt expecting a proposal for at least a few weeks away. He proposed on July 24th. We went hiking that morning with his family and cousins that morning, and when we got back we all went swimming in his pool. They play this game where they tie a rope onto a tree by the pool and hold it up. People take turns jumping over the rope as they raise it higher and higher.
Well, when it was my turn to jump over the rope, they had the ring in the box tied onto the rope with the ribbon hanging right in front of me...and like an idiot, I completely didn't see the box and jumped over the rope instead! It was so funny! Then when I came up out of the water I saw that mitch had a silly dickie vest tie thing on and I made fun of him, totally not even realizing that he was trying to propose. Luckily his dad said "ok Tiffany needs to go again" So I got out of the pool and got on the diving board and mitch jumped up there with me and started to take the box off the rope. Then I saw it, and I relalized what he was doing. Then he opend the box and got down on one knee and proposed while we were standing on the diving board together. I couldn't have had a better proposal. Totally unexpected and the his family and cousins were there, along with Jeremy and Kimmy.
This is mitch after I jumped over the box and into the pool...haha if you look closely you can see the box hanging on the rope.
Here are some more pictures...they are pretty self explanitory :-)
Ok well since we have just gotten engaged, I decided to give into the peer pressure and make a blog! As soon as I get used to how to work this thing, I'll post our engagement story along with pictures and everything!For now I'm just doing a "test posting!"
I am so thrilled to begin my life with Mitch. He is everything I have ever wanted, and just a couple months before we started dating I was going through alot. Little did I know that the man of my dreams was just around the corner. :-) He is so amazing and perfect for me. I never imagined that life could be this good, and that I could feel like a princess. Looking back, I see that all things in my life up to this have been stepping stones leading to this moment. I am very blessed to have Mitch in my life and we are very in love!
