...the happiest time...

Wowee, it's been a long time, which I must apologize for... I do have some good news though!!
You know that handsome guy I was telling you about earlier? Well, I kinda like him and he kinda likes me and we're kinda getting married!! I know, right? I'm excited to!!He asked me to marry him way back on November 8, 2009--- I know I'm a slacker in my blogging... I should have come to you first.
But it was so sweet....

It was Sunday morning, November 8, 2009.
He came and picked me up on his way home from work so we could go to church.. he was really in a hurry, which i thought was unusual, but didn't think anything of it..
We got to his house so he could get changed and get ready for church. I was in his family room talking to his brother that was in the kitchen eating lunch while Jake was downstairs getting ready.. he all of a sudden came up with 3 presents (mind you it was our 3 month anniversary ;) )
He handed me a paper that said "No Scrooge of Gifts Here" and told me how much he loved me and how these last 3 months have been the best 3 months of his life and what the 3 presents represented.. Past, Present and Future.
I opened them in order
The past was a blanket
He had a little paper that said what it represented. It was the blanket like when I was little, my silky when I was a baby that comforted me.
As he is my comfort now.
The present was a pair of diamond earings
The paper said they represented the shining star that I am to him they were more wordy.. but I won't bore you with the gush ;)
and the future was my empty ring box in it with a note that said how much he loved me and wanted to be with me forever through every holiday and Thanksgiving and Christmas. After I get done reading it to look at him and close my eyes. I looked at him, closed my eyes and he told me how much he loved me and how he wanted to spend forever with me. He grabbed my hand and put the ring on my finger and asked me to marry him.

Oh, I love that boy.
The big day is coming up on February 5, 2010!

You already know this, but I am so excited for you!! You will love to hear the words of the sealer and realize the importance of the covenant you are making with the Lord and with Jake! I wish I could be there but if you invited everyone more important than me to the sealing, there wouldn't be room. So, I will just sit at home and imagine the joy on your face! You deserve it!

In answer to your question on my blog, I am due March 28th! I'm sure I will go late though and he will be born in April. My sister-in-law is pregnant as well and due March 17th. Spring is a good time to have a baby I guess:) And don't worry, I catch myself watching Tyra from time to time as well. She drives me nuts though...
