me crafty? not quite but i'll try!

I wanted something crafty from a fellow blogger friend so I decided to participate. You should all be jealous because what I get will probably be better than what you get from me. haha. But I promise i'll try!! After all I need to start practicing my "wife skills" sometime. Here are the directions.

How it works: The FIRST THREE people to leave a comment on this post will receive at some point during this year a handmade gift from me. What it will be and when it will arrive will be a total surprise--to both of us. The CATCH is that YOU MUST PLAY TOO! Before you leave your comment here, write a pay it forward post on your blog to keep the fun going (you can cut and paste these instructions). Then come back and let me know that you are going to play, and sit back and anticipate the arrival of your gift. It's THAT easy! Remember, only the FIRST THREE comments will qualify. Good luck!

The end of an era

I feel the need to update my blog. Why? Possibly because I haven't blogged in literally forever (yes, literally). Or because my life has been amazingly beautiful lately and it should be documented. Or because i've gone through a few life changing events lately that the world should know about. Or because it may be one of the last blog posts on this blog. Yes. Its true. This blog will shortly come to an end. After all, I'm getting married next week and with marriage comes the need to start a "couple's blog". Its inevitable. Its like changing your name on your debit card, and getting a new driver's license.

I'll keep you posted on the change. But until then I shall update via pictures. Enjoy :)

Brett and I took more engagement pictures. I will save you from having to look through them alll (check facebook if you're interested). But ya can't deny the fact that we are one good looking couple!

I officially graduated from college. 4 years, countless papers and numerous tests later I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Social Work. Now, all that's left to do is take my licensure exam and I can be a legit social worker! I feel so blessed that I had so many people to come and celebrate with me. (My Dad and Mom, Me, Brett, My Brother Tyler, Grandpa Johnson and not pictured...My aunt and uncle)

After graduating, Brett and I spent a rainy Sunday afternoon bonding through heavy lifting. We got the keys to our apartment after church on Sunday and moved in all our stuff.



Okay, so maybe that's not the final look, but its what our place looked like at the end of Sunday. Luckily we were able to get the bed set-up and made. A big shout out thank-you to Brett's mom who bought the bedding for my graduation present! (For concerned readers, I slept in the house while Brett spent the week at my brother's house.)

Now we've made it back to the present. Brett and I are apart for a week and a half. Luckily absence makes the heart grow fonder, right? It sure makes my heart grow sad and lonely. Anyway, I'm in Portland finalizing wedding plans while Brett is in Provo making the big bucks. He'll get here next Wednesday just in time for me to go through the temple (!!!) and then we wed ourselves on Friday. After a long day Friday, we will wake up early Saturday morning, drive the 5 hours to Baker City, have an open house, open presents, drive the 2 hours to Boise, crash, wake up, fly to San Diego debark on a cruise to Mexico and finally get a chance to relax. It will be so worth it! I can't wait to be married to the love of my life, my best friend.
