Our wedding announcement

In two months from today Dustin and I will be married! I can't wait!!!!! Today was an exciting day because I got our announcement samples in the mail, and it was fun to see the announcements! My sister-in-law did an amazing job!!!! Also today and work I received a little surprise from Dustin, there were gerber daisies on my desk and a note saying he wished he was here with me and that we just have two more months until we are sealed together!!!! Again, Dustin does something for me!!!
The wedding plans are going really well, we just booked our luncheon at the Joseph Smith building, my dress is getting cleaned and pressed, the announcements are getting printed, we have our stuff set for the apartment. Pretty much everything is done but a few odds and ends! So things are going great besides the distance thing, it's been really hard.
Another exciting thing is my brother and his cute little family is coming next week! And I can't wait! I'm greatly blessed!

What We Have Been Up To.

Me and the pile kitchen stuff I have been collecting!

So here are some things we have been up to the last week (I'm trying to blog better).  This last week I started packing some things in my room, I know, it might seem early but I'm really excited to be getting married to Dustin, also between school and getting things ready for our apartment I decided to start doing some of it now or it won't get done. So I started packing stuff I don't use everyday such as my collection of books, and I'm embarrassed to say, I have filled two boxes and I got maybe half my books!  I love books but I didn't realize that much! But between my art books, children's books, and just books I enjoy, they start collecting..... part of me is wondering how I'm going to pack all 20 years of my life... but I will have to manage.
Also this week I was able to go to the store with my mom and buy some kitchen stuff, I'm so lucky to have my mom to help me get ready for my next adventure in life. That was way fun, it's crazy how depending where you are in life certain things are exciting, like a year ago I would never thought buying kitchen stuff would be this exciting! But it is!!!
Another amazing thing happened this week my niece Ashley (on Dustin's side) got baptized! Sadly I wasn't there but Dustin and his family had the chance to go. It's so neat to have the gospel in our lives and what amazing thing to have the Holy Ghost in our lives! And I'm so excited for Ashley to be a new member of this church.
Than today, I had a little surprise that I didn't expect. I got a letter from Dustin! I can't believe what a blessing he has been in my life, he has been there for me every time. Last night I was really down and he text me all night until I started feeling better, even through texts he knew something was wrong. And than today I get this letter, and it seriously made my week! He wrote me about the first time he met me and how he felt and how he feels about me today. And than there was a check for me, because I have been struggling with money lately because of school, art supplies, and many other things and I have been expressing that to him this last little bit. And I couldn't help but cry, I have never been treated so well in my life, I didn't know what to say? Than he gave me an extra ten dollars that he insisted that I use for me and only me. Really, I don't know what to say to that? Only that I have been truly blessed and the Lord knew exactly who I needed for my eternal companion and I have never been happier!!!
