Finally yesterday the ring was done!!!!! So Dustin comes in my head drawing class and proposes to me again in class! I was super happy.... again.... and said yes again...! It was great! I loved it!!!!! The ring is gorgeous, prettier than I anticipated and a lot bigger than I anticipated! But I LOVE IT!

He Popped the Question and I Said Yes!!!!

Today has been one of the greatest days of my life!!!! Dustin proposed to me!!!! I have never been happier!!!!! Dustin truly brings joy in my life, the last few months he has become my best friend! I don't know how I got so lucky to have the opportunity to spent all eternities with him!
So you want to know how he did it?
Well.... here we go....
This morning we decided to go hike the R Mountain to watch the sunrise. When Dustin came to pick me up he had gerber daisies with him, Boy, what a great way to start the day. When we were on our way to the R mountain we decided to just watch the sunrise in Beaver Dick Park because the sun was rising a lot faster than we anticipated. We sat on a dock by the river and it was just gorgeous, there was fog everywhere, and all you could hear were the ducks in the distance. Dustin brought his guitar with him and said that he had a song that he wanted to sing to me because it reminds him of me. The song was called: 

She's Got a Way

She's got a way about her
I don't know what it is
But I know that I can't live without her

She's got a way of pleasin'
I don't know why it is
But there doesn't have to be a reason

She's got a smile that heals me
I don't know what it is
But I have to laugh when she reveals me

She's got a way of talkin'
I don't know what it is
But it lifts me up when we are walkin'

She comes to me when I'm feelin' down
Inspires me without a sound
She touches me and I get turned around

She's got a way of showin'
How I make her feel
And I find the strength to keep on goin'

She's got a light around her
And everywhere she goes
A million dreams of love surround her

She comes to me when I'm feelin' down
Inspires me without a sound
She touches me and I get turned around

She's got a smile that heals me
I don't know what it is
But I have to laugh when she reveals me

She's got a way about her
I don't know what it is
But I know that I can't live without her

After the song he said that he added another verse, than he goes on his knee and he started singing this to me:

Jessica will you marry me?
I love you so much
I'll do my best to make you happy
Together for all eternity
It's a dream come true
We will make our own eternal family
You and me, what do you say?

And of course I said YES!!!!!!! 
Than he went to give me a ring and apologized that it wasn't the ring that I picked out because my ring was not ready yet, so he pulled out a 25 cent ring that he got from a venting machine, but I still loved it! I told him I didn't care as long as the ring was from him! After that we celebrated with sparkling cider and plastic cups! I couldn't stop smiling after that!
Than afterwards we had the opportunity to call and text everyone the great news! I also had the opportunity to talk to Dustin's parents for the first time over the phone, I was nervous at first, but once I got talking with them, I fell in love with them right away! I'm super excited to meet them and be part of their family!!!!!!!!
 I'm super excited about getting married to the most amazing guy in the whole world!

The Amazing eggs.... I know they are the best eggs you have ever seen!
Bri with her three eggs!
Dustin with his three eggs, the orange one is his "starburst" one. It was the same color as the starbursts we were eating.
My three eggs, they look better in person! The middle one was a bunny face!
Paul, just being so proud of his eggs, but I think mine are better!
This was the egg I took a lot of time making, Bri said I was trying to be too art-sy! But it turned out way cool, I'm proud of my egg!
Paul taking his sweet time, I think one egg he had in the blue one the whole time, so the others didn't really get a chance to use that blue.
Dustin and I showing our eggs!

For Easter Dustin and I doubled with Paul and Bri and we dyed( I think that's how you spell it?) easter eggs, it was a lot of fun. Even though I think everyone dropped one of their eggs, so we had a lot of cracked eggs. I think that Paul and I took the dying Easter eggs too seriously, we went too technical and spend way too long getting it just the right color!!!! -It must run in the family.
I love Easter! And I'm so grateful for my Savior and I'm grateful to celebrate his resurrection!

THE BEST WEEKEND! ...... and a little funny story!

This last weekend Dustin and I went down to Utah for conference! It was soooo fun! We drove down Saturday morning and arrived at my sister's house at noon, but my sisters and my mom were having a ladies lunch,  so I literally dumped Dustin at my sisters and said, "well here are my 16 nieces and nephews and my brother, and brother-in-laws you never met, good luck and I will see you in a bit!" I felt soooo bad! I was worried the whole time we were at lunch, wondering how Dustin was handling the mob.
After two hours I returned, worried  to see a disaster but instead it was quite the opposite, Dustin was there with my nieces and nephews having a blast. Phew.... what a relief! Maybe it went too well because Dustin took my popularity away because my nieces and nephews wanted to play with Dustin more than me! ha ha, I wouldn't haven't it any other way! It was just really fun, I thought Dustin fit right in the family. This trip also was really fun because driving to Utah and back gave Dustin and I the opportunity to really talk with no homework in the way, and it was really nice that we didn't  want to return to school the next day. 
Now the FUNNY story..... Well Dustin and I are art majors, so the whole art department knows that we are dating and are always wondering what is happening in our relationship, in other words we are something they like to gossip about and make little predictions.... well it doesn't help that I'm the art secretary as well.... well this past weekend we also went ring shopping (which was super fun by they way!) and some of the teachers heard about it because my super visor loved mentioning to anyone who walked through the office doors what I was doing for the weekend. Well the story continues.... on Tuesday Dustin was in his Digital Illustration class when the teacher started the class by, " I heard there were some good news that happened this week. Someone in this class got engaged." Dustin looked up and realized the teacher was talking about him but he didn't know what to do so he just decided to remain quite and hoped that the teacher might caught on, but no. The teacher continued by saying, " I will give you a clue, he's the one with the biggest tablet." than all of the class yelled "DUSTIN!!!!" and poor Dustin had to clear some things up, and the teacher felt horrible, but we personally think its funny. Pretty Hilarious! 
Than the other day Dustin and I were in an art class together and my teacher always calls me "west" and this time he was like "MISSSS West." and than looks at me and smiles, " I won't be calling you that for much longer!" It's really fun dating an art major!!!!
