A Married Woman

Well, it's official. I'm a married woman, and I have been for a little over a week now. It was beautiful! It was perfect.. We went on our honeymoon, and my god, we had such an amazing time. I don't have much time to write right now, but I will post all the details soon! I got the first few pictures back. They were just some that my grandfather took with his not so great camera. I'll post more as I get them!

Ron waiting for me at the end of the aisle.

My daddy walking me down the aisle.

And another.

Our first dance.

The greatest dance of my life.

The best man (Robby) and maid of honor (Christy) coming down the aisle.

I'll get more soon!

New Diet

I've been getting more exercise and joined my stepmother in doing the South Beach Diet. Three pounds in two days so far. Wish me luck!

Trick or Treat!!

It's almost Halloween again. Can I just say that Halloween is one of my absolute favorite holidays? You should see my apartment. (Don't worry, pictures to follow.) It's just so easy to get in to the festivities! The leaves are crunching beneath your feet. The air is getting crisper. You can see the excited smiles on every child's face. Before you know it, you have goblins and witches at your front door, scary music in the background, and, by the end of the night, an empty bucket that once upon a time was full of goodies.

Then the weeks speed by and you are surrounded by family with the smell of apple pie and roasted turkey, spicy pumpkin and fluffy stuffing, starchy mashed potatoes and, of course, that green bean casserole! You sit around a big table and all at once you hear five different conversations passed back and forth. What feels like hours later, you push yourself away from the table, unbutton those levi's, looking around to see if anyone noticed, and then spend the rest of the day struggling not to fall asleep.

Then suddenly there is snow outside! The trees and ground are covered in it. You look to your neighbor's house across the street and see a jolly snowman staring back at you with his big black marble eyes. You gather 'round a giant tree all covered in lights, and tinsel, and bulbs. You all sing all the old fashioned Christmas Carols while sipping on hot cocoa. (Maybe grandma's has a little kick to it.) ;) The excitement builds as you snuggle in to sleep. You toss and turn for most of the night, and jump out of bed far earlier than you would normally. You run to the living room and suddenly it's a mess of torn wrapping paper, boxes, and bows. All you can hear is the excited chatter and each gift is newly discovered.

... God I love the holidays. (No, even MINE aren't quite THAT wonderful.)

Moving On Up

So Ron got a 'promotion' at work about a month ago. Technically it was more of a lateral move to a different department, but it will mean a pay increase and a cushier position, so I consider it a promotion. It took them a while to move him because they had to find someone to take his old position. Plus, he had to train them. ;) He began his new position this past Monday, and so far he seems to really enjoy it! I couldn't be happier for him. For us. Things seem to be going so well for us.

And on another note, we are nearly finished with the invitations. They'll be going out the first week of October. We keep on picking up little ideas here and there to make them even better. I have to go shopping a bit later for something we want to try out. We'll see how it looks! It's strange to think that in just a little over 9 weeks, I am going to be married. I'm going to be his wife. I'm going to be the person he turns to when he's hurting, the person who takes care of him when he's sick, the person he depends on to make sure the household runs smoothly, the person he'll love for the rest of his life.. And he is going to be all of that, and more, for me...

Wedding Plans!

So Ron and I have been working on wedding plans constantly for the past three days or so. He is getting so excited. So am I! Each step we take makes it seem so much more real. We have the invitations nearly ready for mailing, and they turned out absolutely gorgeous. We still have so much to do, but we are making decent headway. I am not going to go into too much detail, because I don't want to give away the surprise!! It's going to be amazing.

Aunt Kelly's

So we went up to Aunt Kelly's house since Ron's mom, Jo, came down for the weekend. It was pretty fun!

Here is the view just off the road up to Eagle Mountain. Yes, it really is that bare.

The sky was beautiful.

And... here are some little cow dots.

Jo and Bill in his truck.

Ron, wishing a car would get out of his way so he could take a corner at 80 mph.

Cotton candy clouds.

And this... This is Izzy! lol.

Ron, picking on Abby as usual.

Shauna in the kitchen.

Emily. I'm not quite sure what she's doing... Being Emily, I suppose. lol.

Ron's new love.

Bil and the girls. Mylie in his arms, then Abby on the botton right, Emily in the middle, and Shauna on the bottom left.

Such a way with the ladies! lol. :)

Emily looking up at the porch from the lawn.

Ron.. again.. picking on Abby.

Jo and Izzy

Jo smiling at Isabelle. She was giggling!

Abby, in the kitchen.

Aunt Kelly.

And again!

Abby and Emily trying to drive Ron's car away.

Shauna trying to keep Mylie from running away.

Yep, we had a good time.

I am so tired. I have gotten between three and six hours of sleep every night since this weekend. Time for me to take a nap. lol.

This week is going relatively well. It's Wednesday, which means the week is half-way over. (Yippee!)

So Ron and I, in our computer room, have a full size bed as a spare bed for when guests come to stay. I was the one who really pushed to get one so that if any of his family came to stay, they would have a place to sleep. Well, it's never used, and my mom wants a guest bed really badly. So what are we doing? Giving it to her and getting an air hockey table! Ha. We're going to have a full-on game room eventually. We'll have to put a TV in there, along with the PS2, XBOX, Nintendo 64, and Sega. (lol) Gamers for life, right? >.<

Mill Creek Canyon

So we stole away for our Sunday afternoon and wound up in Mill Creek Canyon. Here are some pictures for your viewing pleasure. :)

Here's a big old tree that lives by the side of the road.

Look how lush the mountainside is!

Some petite little white flowers I found.

I love how many shades of green there are.

And a few yellow flowers to go with the white ones.

A sweet little creek we found near the road.

The edge was a bit slippery... Heh. Good thing I didn't fall in!

There were so many rocks just smothered with that bright green moss!

Sunshine coming through the trees and down the hill.

A teeny tiny little brook I found!

Look how tiny it is! And yet look how lush the vegetation is around it.

And more of the aforementioned creek; higher up, that is.

I found a ledge to lay on overlooking it!

I call him... Fred! And this is Fred's flower. Something tried to eat Fred's wing... =/

We hiked through a field of wild flowers to find this running water!

Here's the field, and here is Ron!

A bit further back, and I almost fell into the water we hiked there to find!

By far my favorite.

I've never seen a sky so clear, except for where the clouds are. ;)

It couldn't have been more beautiful.

Here is Ron showing me exactly how he feels about my camera pointed at him, yet again!

The wildflower field.

I love this picture. This was on a little trail we found and climbed.

Here is one of the few shots I let Ron take when he was able to wrestle the camera out of my hands.

I looooove these white trees! And there's the ring. :)

I love this picture as well. I love the size and depth difference of all the trees.

I was looking at the clouds and Ron decided to be silly.

Just look at those green eyes... Makes me fall in love all over again.

A beautiful rock outcropping mid-way up the hillside.

In the car on the way home!!!

Thus brings us to another end. More another day!!
