"the only true gift is a kiss for christmas"

Happy Thanksgiving!
So while driving home from the festivities of the day, I was (finally) listening to Christmas music. It's become a little tradition of my brother's to create an amalgamation of indie/unknown christmas tunes each year, and this year he did quite well. This music got me all nostalgic after dropping off Addi, and passing the signs, I started to ponder about the first time I passed those signs looking for Weber State campus, and how hopelessly lost I became. I wonder how many times since then I've passed those signs, and how that audition and choosing WSU has impacted my life since. Well, thinking mostly the about best change it's brought : Addi. If you haven't heard about our fist meeting at a WSU bus stop, you've missed out! I'm so grateful for him. He still loves me when I'm grumpy! What a find... :)

This is a song from my brother a couple years ago, that still remains my favorite.

Anyway, we had a wonderful day with the Briggs clan. Delicious, chaotic, and warm-we had a blast. We finished off the day with 19 of us invading the Heber theatre. We saw tangled in 3D and loved it, and we're both not even fans of 3D! We recommend it.

bundled up

ha, so right now, I am home alone. I am fully decked in boots, a sweatshirt, a coat, a scarf, and a hat. School/rehearsals were canceled due to this death storm...and right now I feel like those kids in the movies. Down in their underground shelter beneath the barn to escape the "twister" (think wizard of oz....or the village) waiting for the eye of the storm to find them! It's terribly exciting. It wouldn't have been had I been stuck in it, but since I'm not, I'm kinda giddy :)

Anyway! Down to business: I need your help. So since Add and I are going to be newlyweds for Christmas, we decided that if would be greatly romantic (ok maybe that was just me) and financially responsible of us to make our christmas gifts for each other. While this all sounded like a great idea, now I'm starting to remember how crafty my fiance' is...and that he may be getting a rotten deal out of all of this. ha! Who has ideas!? Any ideas would be so greatly appreciated.
I hope you are all home and safe, curled up with some cocoa tonight. 
Happy Thanksgiving!
Anyone else seeing Tangled?

Why, hello

So, confession: I have always wanted to start a blog. Yet, I have always thought that I wouldn't have enough to say, and maybe when I got married I'd have more to say? Ha, maybe that was just a cop out. But today, years later, I find myself just 3 short weeks away from marriage to the most wonderful man I've ever met.

His name is Addi, I love him dearly and this is our blog :) It's almost as if we've claimed a little bit of the universe for our own.

Addison and I get married on December 13th at 10:20 am. I am incredibly excited and can't remember when the time has ever flown by so quickly! Turns out my mother (who is an absolute pro at weddings after planning 5!), Momma Melinda (future in-law) Add, and I are quite the team when it comes to planning. Seriously, we had this thing planned weeks ago, and now we're just working out a couple deats.

                   So this week on the wedding checklist:
                        -send out invites (they're done!)
                        -get our wedding license
                        -fill some picture frames for centerpieces
                        -get some final alterations done on my dress

Wish me luck! loves
