I am going to put this post in my crush box

           So I have been looking forward my whole life to getting married…..SO I COULD FINALLY GET A BLOG!  Just kidding I am all about the REAL LOVE!  So Ben and I are getting married so we decided to get a blog so we can keep everyone up to date on our life, cause you know after you get married you become homie and lose contact with the outside world just stay home and make jam, talk to your mom about recipes and crock pots and play boggle (right Connor and Lindsay) just kidding! No no I am sure we will stay very social because we both love to play, but we want to have a blog for other people to read but also so we can use it as a sort of journal for our life start, a cute journal with pictures and backgrounds and wit!

July 17, 2010-OFFICIAL

 So we have been engaged since July 17th, one of the best days of my life thus far, it was perfect and special and I loved it!  We originally were going to have a long-ish engagement and get married on November 27th….we had about 140 days or something…Then after much consideration we changed our minds and wanted to get married before my brother Matt left on his mission to Chile on October 9th.  So we changed the caterer, changed the flowers, changed the invitations and suddenly it was a short-ish engagement,-we skipped our 100 days to the wedding, and now it is 48 and counting!  I am happy that we changed our date, I am so happy that Matt will be able to be there and he is going to be one of Ben’s Groomsman, and I think it will be a fun memory before he leaves for a foreign land for two years.

So far I have loved being engaged…planning a wedding=sometimes stressful, I have only had a couple minor panic/stress attacks, luckily Ben is super calm and assures me it will all be ok! And it will be! My mom is my amazing wedding planner and she is just making the process about 100 times easier!   I have actually really enjoyed planning though, I am that girl that has been planning my wedding in my head since I was ten years old and at every wedding I have been to I pick ideas and dislikes and thought about how my own would be…every picture I take I think “possible slide show material” So it has been fun to do it in real life, picking out cakes and flowers and I got a dress!!! Anyways but the actual being engaged to Ben part has been complete bliss, sometimes I wish we could be engaged for longer because it is just so fun, there totally is a difference from dating and being engaged, not to mention I love the word fiancée, haha I can’t stop saying it! At work when I say sentences like “Oh ya my fiancée and I….” or “My fiancée loves that show” or “My fiancée is picking me up” I feel so cool and grown up. ..It is so weird that it’s real, sometimes I feel like I am making it up to sound cooler to my co-workers but no it is real and we are getting married!  Of course the girls at work are not from Provo and are convinced I am pregnant and that is the reason we are getting so young and in so quick a time!  Anyways like I was saying sometimes I wish we could be engaged for longer, but most of the time I wish we could just get married tomorrow!! I really am glad it is so soon, I am just so excited to start a life with Ben and just be together for everything, joint bank accounts and joint groceries, waking up next to him, him being the best roommate ever, not to mention I am head over heels for him!

       Ben is so good at contributing the perfect amount to the wedding planning, enough so I know that he really cares but honest enough to stay home while my mom and I look at flowers and centerpieces!  Want to hear something tender? So Ben has been staying at my house this summer with my family, which has been so amazing, so fun for my family to get to know him an vice verca, well every night I take my beautiful ring off, I want to be so very careful with it, and every morning when I am done showering and ready, Ben takes my ring and proposes to me every day, some days he gets on one knee and gives me a special speech before he puts it on, but some days he just says “I love you, marry me” and puts my ring on for me!  It has become quite the cute tradition.
Anyways i dont think all my posts will be this long, so dont worry, do come back and read once in a while...
I hope that you like our blog because it was hard to make...was it that hard for anyone else? all that html junk? ok well till next time....
