Getting married is a whirlwind of emotions...stress, anxiety, excited, happy, overwhelmed, loved, busy... It completely wears you out! I feel so worn down, but at the same time I am filled with such excitement for TOMORROW. I can't explain the feeling. It's the feeling you get on Christmas Eve when you're little, but times that by INFINITY. It really is the best feeling. I feel so blessed to be surrounded by so many friends and family that love and support me and Landon. I just barely found out that all NINE of my siblings will be there and I just feel SO SO SO SO lucky and so blessed! When me and Landon were orginally going to get married December 30th, my brother Nick wasn't going to be able to come because he was being deployed mid- December (he's in the Navy). It honestly broke my heart to think of getting married without my big brother there with me! Everytime I thought about it I just broke down. I can't even hold back my tears even writing about how awful it was. So, out of the blue, I got the idea to get married over Thanksgiving break! I mean why not? Everyone will be out of school/work and it will be better for EVERYONE not having to cram the wedding in right after a busy Christmas. It just seemed SO perfect. And even though I didn't know for sure if Nick could come, it comforted me knowing there was a POSSIBILITY he would be there. There was some drama with moving the date (such as finding out my oldest sister Sally would be in New Mexico for Thanksgiving!!!! I almost had a heart attack) but luckily it all worked out! Moving the wedding up a month meant I really had to get on top of wedding planning, and let me tell you it has been HECK! haha I have not loved planning this wedding, especially while in school full time, but I know that by tomorrow it will all be worth it to me! I am just so so so so so grateful we were able to move the wedding to tomorrow because I will have EVERY brother and sister with me!!!!!!! It is the best feeling in the world!!! I love them so much and I can't WAIT to see everyone. I am so lucky to be surrounded by so many wonderful people on such an important day for me. Not only my own wonderful family but also my future in-laws! Landon's mom, dad, and brothers drove up from Texas, his cousins are coming from Idaho, his grandma came from Washington, and his aunt came from Washington too! It really is so overwhelming, in a good way!!! All of these people came for me and Landon because they love and support us! It is the best feeling in the world. I can't wait for tomorrow :)

I Don't Know How It Gets Better Than This!

Well words can't even begin to describe how I'm feeling right now. All morning I have just been squealing and jumping and smiling thinking that one week from now I will be sealed forever to my love! Could life get any better?! I seriously feel so blessed and so lucky to be where I am and who I'm with! I have waited for this my ENTIRE life and I can't believe it is finally here. I love Landon with my whole heart, he is seriously my rock. He has taught me so much and I have already grown so much because of him! He helps me stay calm when I am a stress case. He always kisses me, hugs me, and ALWAYS makes sure I know how much he loves me. He seriously is the biggest SWEETHEART ever, and not many people see that side of him, but he really is just such a sweetie! I can't even stand it! We both need each other, it just doesn't feel right when we aren't together. I'm not a whole person without him, and he isn't without me either :) We are just both so lucky!!! Holy cow! I just feel like this is all a dream. I love my Landon Dean! 7 days and you are mine FOREVER AND EVER. No matter what :)

When Life Gives You Lemons...

Well, this week has been...interesting. I won't go into all the details on why my week has been so fun...but I will say that it ended with my purse being stolen: phone, camera, ipod, wallet, keys, blank checks, and even my dang social security card. It was pretty much the worst feeling in the world--going back to my sister's car and seeing that the doors were all unlocked and the purses were gone...I was shaking for like two hours and I still just feel sick to my tummy.

But even though so many crappy things have happened this week, I have to count my blessings. Because really, I have so much to be grateful for! I am getting married in 19 days!! to the most wonderful guy EVER. He's honestly my other half. I have a great family, great friends, and this gospel! I have so much to be grateful for even though this week has gotten me down.

I love the saying "When life becomes too hard to stand...kneel." I know that there's nothing this world can throw at me that I can't get through with the help of my Heavenly Father. So bring it on!!!!!

Can't We Just Huggle?!

For anyone that knows me, you know that I struggle forming words (wottled bater for bottled water). Anyway, Landon seems to think it is funny to tickle me until I cry and tonight while he was torturing my poor little feet, I pleaded in agony "CAN'T WE JUST HUGGLE?!" Oh boy. Snuggle+cuddle=huggle?! Anyway, Landon thought it was pretty funny and we both shared a good laugh. When I think about it, it would be weird if Landon didn't tickle and tease me! We are just so playful together and our relationship just wouldn't be the same without Landon playfully teasing me every single day! (I'm sorry to Melyssa and Zac upstairs who have to listen to my screaming every day). Anyway, I'm grateful that me and Landon have a relationship full of laughter and playfulness. We really both are just two kids! I love my adorable, five-year old fiance!! :)
