Seven Days

Tonight is kind of a wierd-feeling night for me. That said, I am sure next Thursday night will be even more wierd, thinking that when I wake the next day I will getting ready to get married. But back to today--I spent the day packing up my room and then this afternoon Peter and his brother came and loaded everything into cars. They drove off with a pick-up truck full of furniture and a car loaded down with boxes. My packed car will be leaving with me tomorrow. How on earth did I accumulate so much stuff?? The crazy thing was when I was packing the food from my kitchen shelves I realized that a lot of it I had hauled up with me six months ago when I moved from St George. Those are obviously items I shouldn't be buying. Tomorrow morning we are moving all my stuff plus all our other furniture (which is being stored at Peter's house) into our new hang out. I am definitely excited to get it all situated and looking like OUR house. That will be fun. Although, I am not very creative so here is a shout out requesting any cute decorating tips!!
After packing, we went to The Pizza Factory. Our bill came to about $30.00, but in the end we only paid a little over $5. Why? Well, we had a buy-1-get-1-free coupon, Peter used a gift certificate he got from getting 2nd place in an ice cream bar eating contest, and then we called and took their company survey for an extra $5 off our meal. Cool. :)

Here is Peter, eating away at his ice cream. It's blurry cuz I took it with my cell phone.

I had an emergency bridal photo session today. I had it scheduled for next week, but due to a forecast of rain, rain, and more rain clear through the end of April we moved things up. I wasn't as prepared as I would have liked to have been but I think things went ok anyway. We had pretty good weather, but with quite a bit of wind. And it was a good run through of what things to be prepared for on the actual wedding day-like bringing tons of bobby pins and safety pins and making sure to fasten my slip tight enough so it doesn't fall off. Anyway, here are a few of the shots. Thanks so much to my sister, Em!! I couldn't have done it without her!

My favorite part of the whole experience was all the little kids oogling me. The little girls: "Mama, did you see the princess?" "She looks just like Gizelle!" "Is she a statue or is she for real?"

Early morning thoughts

May I just tell you all how much I love listening to Elder Eyring? Of course, I love them all, but I just got done listening to his most recent general conference address from the Saturday morning session and it was fantastic! I figured since I have to be up at 2:00 am addressing envelopes, I may as well be productive with my time and re-listening to general conference is one of those things that hasn't made it off my to-do list yet. Just a question though--what general conference address from a few weeks ago touched you the most?

"Bridal Bliss"

Today I had my bridal shower. My mom invited over 70 people. They didn't all come, thank goodness. Anyway, it was a lot of fun but I don't have any pictures yet because my mom took her digital camera but forgot the battery. I will have to get some from my grandma and sisters to post later. This week, I also made my way back to St George for the first time since I moved. I spent some fun time with my cousins and saw a few friends from the hospital. Sorry to those that I didn't see (Marci, if you even read this blog anymore).
