It has come SO fast...at least the engagement part of it all.
Those two years apart seemed a little long ;)
I don't really talk about it much because I'm just not really that kind of person, but I feel SO lucky to be able to marry someone as great as JD. People ask all the time if I'm nervous... and I can honestly, and easily answer 'no' to that question. I have no doubt that JD is my best friend in the entire world and no matter what comes throughout the rest of our journey, we'll be together and that'll make it just fine with me.
My friends and I like to play this little game (yeah, we're kind of mean... I know) called "who got the better deal?" Unfortunately for me, I know EXACTLY who got the better deal this time.
Just don't fill him in on this ;)
So, I know where I'll be on Saturday...
Newport Beach Temple with my best friend in the world.
25 Days of Christmas... best ABC Family countdown EVER.
25th of December... best holiday EVER (right next to the 4th of July).
Top 25 BCS Standings
25 is a great number for many reasons...
HOWEVER, today it's a great number because it's the amount of
day left until JD and I are married!
Love this boy:
So in honor of this great day, I thought it would be appropriate to introduce the fabulous bridesmaids. I love each one of these people so much and I have been so blessed to have them all throughout my life. Not many people are as lucky as I am :)
First: My beautiful sister Lex
She is hilarious! ...and did I mention smart?! Yes... Lexi is the genius in the family and also probably one of the kindest people you'll ever meet. She can be a little uptight sometimes, but it's only because she cares so much about the details. She is definitely a perfectionist and it works to her advantage FOR SURE. I love her more than anything and love her even more for how supportive she has always been of JD. She loves him and he loves her. It's great :)
Second: Amelia & Jenni
These two have kind of been there the whole way. We've been best friends since we were 13 and I could have never imagined to have been blessed with two better friends to share those crazy years with. They not only made my junior high/high school experience HILARIOUS but they also helped me to understand what it means to be a true friend. I love these two so much and I feel so lucky that I've been able to have them in my life for so long.
And last, but definitely not least: Rach, Sara Rae, Al Pal, and Dani Deej
How can I even start? I might get teared up thinking about how much they have put up with my crazy antics and have loved me the whole way through. They are such incredible examples and friends to me. I love each and every one of them for a million reasons each... it might be creepy if I kept going. But let it suffice to say that I have NO idea what it would've been like these last couple years without them there to share the memories with.
They're all pretty great...
I'm kind of a REALLY lucky person,
and I will definitely be having the most beautiful bridesmaids EVER.
Last week in class I was looking at Dani and started cracking up because she had a little chip of nail polish stuck in between her teeth. You may remember my post about her obsession with painting her nails. If so, you understand why I was laughing.
Upon me telling her this, I also said, "Yes! I now have something to blog about. This is great!"
She stared at me and said, "You just got engaged... and you're going to blog about ME with nail polish in between my teeth?!"
So folks... the cats out of the bag.
I've been engaged for a little over 2 weeks.
We're getting married December 19th 2009 in the Newport Beach Temple.
More updates coming soon :)
Being engaged to your best friend is pretty great.
"So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they're busy doing things they think are important. This is because they're chasing the wrong things. The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning."
