Told ya so......

We usually take a week or two between posts in order to allow our fans to completely take each post in, digest it, take a nap, & then come back for more. But every now & then there's an event that is so big, so life-changing, & so amazing that it simply must be discussed. Tonight we had such an event: DeAnna chose Jesse. On top of all that.....I called it.

Yes that's right ladies & gentlemen, I saw it coming a mile away & correctly predicted she'd choose humble, funny, athletic, down-to-earth Snowboard Jesse. The look in her eyes & the way she acted around him said it all. Now I hear all you ladies out there, crying & complaining about her choosing Jesse over Jason. Sure, Jason's a nice guy, but as someone close to me would say, "He needs to wash his hair". Also, let's not overlook the fact that Jason is from Seattle & hyped up on caffine. Just sayin'. All he did was say the "perfect lines" & act the way he was supposed to act, & to me, came off not genuine. My guess is DeAnna saw right thru this too. I hear ya D, I do. Jason was a flake, Jesse is the real prize, & you chose the right one. He makes her laugh & he's not afraid to be himself.

So to all you ladies out there scouring the medicine cabinet for sleeping pills or antidepresents, fear not, because afterall.....they're never really gonna get married & a new season will be on in a few short weeks. Gotta love those ABC producers. Until next time, GO JESSE!!!

The Sweet Smell of Freedom

Well, I first want to thank all our troops who are fighting and/or have fought to keep the freedom we as Americans hold so dearly. We sang "My Country Tis of Thee" today at church and it really got me thinking about how I take my freedom for granted. Not only do I have the right to pray in public, but I have the right to marry the man of my dreams, work, vote and be happy all while feeling no sense of immediate threat - all while our country is fighting one of the longest, toughest wards in history. We are all truly blessed.

This weekend was great! We went to a Rough Riders baseball game on Thursday night with Josh's sister and brother-in-law. Although the Riders lost, we had a blast and its always nice to see my future-sister-in-law! Friday was spent drinking margaritas and laying by the pool. Josh got pretty burned, but I think I just added to the already beautiful tan I have. ;)

As we wind down to the wedding, our anxiety and stress levels are rising (I should probably just say me...) - we're taking care of last-minute preparations and trying to stay cool. I woke up this morning with a HUGE pimple and got really upset. Leave it up to me to breakout the week before my wedding!

Anyways, things are going great here. I'm so happy that we got to spend this 3-day weekend together, relaxing and living the good life. I can't wait to spend every 3-day weekend for the rest of my life with Josh!
