Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.. Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas..

That line above is from the Christmas movie "All I want for Christmas" and it is one of my favorites. And the little girl says that over and over "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.. Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.. Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.. Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.." to be annoying, so I do it as well around Christmas time to be annoying! It is no surprise to anyone that knows me, that I love Christmas time!! I start listening to Christmas music way to early, and watching movies. I grew up doing this with my sisters, and I will continue to with my kids. We put the tree up the day after Thanksgiving. It is simple, and we are slowly starting to get "memory" ornaments and I love them! We finally got a tree topper this year, and I think it fits perfectly! I really want a real tree one year, but I will settle with this one for now.

Our cute tree! Our house is so small that the only place it could go was in front of the door. But we never use our front door, so no biggie!

My mom had ordered tickets for the Christmas Devotional at the conference center downtown. It was so pretty! I have never been to the conference center, so I was excited. And to see the tabernacle choir, I was excited! At the end the choir sang "O Holy Night" and the congregation joined in at the fourth verse. I was half way listening, but in my own thoughts while thinking about some stuff that has been going on personally with me, and I focused again on the screen and right then was the time when we all joined in, and I started signing and couldn't help but start crying. I don't know if it was what I had been thinking of, or the song having a different meaning to me after the devotional but I haven't been able to stop thinking about it. Hmmm

It was so crazy and foggy that night, and so the temple looked amazing!!

Me and Jenny. It was so cold, we look funny

And of course I had to get this picture. Every year at Christmas time, I always think of retro Christmas, I don't know what it is. And I always think of my Grandma Timm, and her old house. I wonder if it is because of all the Christmas' spent at her old house, and she must have had old retro decorations or something. I don't know, I never could put my finger on what made me always reminiscent of a retro Christmas.. but this reminded me of olden days with the building behind.
I love this picture!! I think the temple looks so beautiful, there is almost a mystery of it or something. And the pole makes it seem like an olden day scene to me :)

I have been looking online at vintage Christmas decorations, and a lot of them do remind me of my Grandma Timm. So that does have to be where it came from. There are a few things I want to order.

SEASONS GREETINGS EVERYONE!! I love this time of year!!!!

I Thought an Update Would be Fun

I always get mad at my sisters for not posting.. and I never post!

Life has been busy, but not out of control! I went home in June for my little sister Lindsay and Matt's wedding. She look so beautiful. It was a fun wedding and so pretty! She is going to be an amazing wife and amazing mother. I also met my future sister in law while there. Brent, my older brother came in for the wedding and he is getting married in August. She fit right in with us and we already love her! She is awesome!!!! My sister Lindsay is having a baby in October. Little Crosby, who I like to call Bing. I think I might have started the Bing but I also think I might not have. :) The tradition is that in Matt's family (the husband) all the kids name their first son Crosby. When we were talking about it I was like Ohhhh like Bing Crosby. Because if you know my family you know us girls love Christmas, and Christmas music especially. So therefore he will be nicknamed BING! I love it. And I actually love the name Crosby.. what if I steal the tradition? HAHA! So I got some time with my family that I love so much! And miss even more.

In May Quin found out he would be working in Vernal for the summer.. I was beyond not happy with this. He started out there in June. It has been an adjustment and the first couple of weeks I couldn't stay at home by myself. This week actually is the first week I have been home the whole week and by myself. I am finally not feeling anxious being there alone. This is my home, I want to feel safe there and I want to be able to feel okay being there by myself. We have a crazy neighbor is really the only reason I am nervous there by myself. He is not stable, you can tell. And I always say a crazy person is a scary person because you don't know what they'll do. But things have been okay.

July my family came into town like they do every year. And I love! Since Quin was out of town I went out there every night and stayed out at my sisters. I love having them here and I wish we all lived closer. We had Quin's parents come over for one of the family bbq's and seriously they fit right in with my family. I love it! Soooo the most fun was Sunday after the 4th.. since my mom was in town we decided to go dress shopping! I felt dumb for setting up an appointment when my wedding is a year away but the lady said that is perfect time. This book I have says to actually order your dress six months in advance. And after trying on more than 30 dresses and loving all of them except for maybe 2 I am glad I have six months to find one! I have a feeling this is going to be hard. But I loved it. I loved every minute of trying on dresses. And every dress I tried on. HAHA! It's funny, when I would think about trying on dresses and picturing me in a dress I would start crying or tearing up a little.. but when I actually tried on the dresses I was so happy and so excited that I was just all smiles! No tears. I feel like this whole experience I will be sooo happy and soooo excited that there will be no tears. It feels so weird, because I've never been through anything like this I always imagined I would cry about everything. We shall see I guess. So I have been looking up places more and more to have the wedding at. This is hard too. With Quin out of town there is no time we can both go. So my sister Jenny gave me the idea to go to appointments without him and if there are places that I fall in love with, then set an appointment up with him when he has time. I think this will be perfect. Well I am hoping. This is so much fun!!! I am loving it so far. I hope I don't get sick of it like everyone says they do.

This is all so far.. I can't wait to really get into planning our wedding and having fun things to share. Wish me luck!!

Here's to Forever

Quin proposed Wednesday December 23rd!!!! It was a complete surprise! We had been planning to go drive around and look at lights. I had the week off and I kept texting Jenny saying something is up with Quin and he was not acting like himself. So we headed out Wednesday to look at lights. Last year we found this house in Provo kind of out of nowhere, it has it's own culdesac and one side is the house and the other is a little park/field. The house is huge and beautiful and has the most amazing lights, the really bright ones all over. In the park/field is a huge nativity scene set up. We couldn't remember exactly how to get there but we found it! So we drove up and Quin pulled over and said "Hey let's get out this year" so we got out and we stood right in front of the park and he put his arms around and kissed me and said "Do you know how much I love you, you know how much I love you right?" And I must have made a weird face and I said ".... yeah..." and he goes "NO I am not breaking up with you" Who knows why I am so weird and I thought he was breaking up with me! But he said "no it is way better then that. I want you to marry me!" I just said "SHUT UP!!!!" And he had the box in his hand. So I just kept saying "Really??? Are you for real!!!!" And he said "YES! It is real I want you to be my wife!!" Finally I said "YES of course a million times yes!!!" It was seriously PERFECT! My eyes kept watering with excitment but I was just too happy and too excited! Here are quite a few picture of the ring! He picked it out all by himself.. had it for 3 weeks and everything. He didn't even bring his mom or friends to help him. I love that even more that he did it all on his own. And that it was a total surprise to me!

I love this view... it has two peaks on the side that don't touch the diamond. It's my favorite part!

I had to take the ring in to get sized and it KILLED me! Because of Christmas it took two days and I was so sad but so excited to get it back!!!
Kristi's cell phone takes better pictures then any digital camera. Plus I hate my fingers. Gross! :)

Before leaving for Chris' birthday party!

I am soooooo happy I can not even explain it!! I have always told the people that are close to me that I just haven't felt like I am going to get married. for one, it just hasn't been a huge priority for me. If I found love and it happened then I would be excited but I just didn't think it would happen. Since meeting Quin and getting serious with him it has always been on my mind. I finally found the one person that I really wanted to get married to! It is such an amazing feeling. I have found my best friend that will be for the rest of my life. We don't have a date set yet, but we want to have a wedding in the summer and since we will need to save for the honeymoon and alcohol at our wedding we are thinking not this summer but next!! It is quite a ways away but I am already looking at bridesmaid dresses and trying to figure out the colors for the wedding. Which is good because I can not make decissions. So Christmas this year for real has been the best ever!! I got so spoiled aside from getting engaged! I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with Quin and to plan our wedding!!!!!

Where Has the Time Gone?

It is so weird to see all the married people I went to school with, and especially the ones that have kids! And more then one kid! Are we really that grown up? I remember the carefree days I'd spend with these people... life changes so much too fast!

It Happened...

We went up to the opening of the bow hunt this last weekend. Obviously we are not hunters... we go to camp and have fun. Burnie and Nephew drove up in the truck and we were waved over by another guy... I took a second to get there and I walked up to the bed of the truck and screamed. I screamed out loud... then I was like "you gotta warn a girl!" Burnie had shot a deer righ in the head pretty much right between the eyes! Most of the bow (I don't even know if that is what it's called)was stilling out the back. Melissa one of the wives of the hunters was like if you see a bunch of guys standing around the bed of a truck you know there's something dead. HAHA! She has a two year old son (who I may steal) and he was all about it, actually pulling on the bow that was still in the deer's head. Another little girl a little older, her dad put her up on the side to see too. I thought it would traumatize a child but I guess not. I have never seen anything that someone has actually killed except for the deer and buffalo head in the basement of my grandma and grandpa's house, that is it. I went over to talk to Sarah and it was close to where they were hanging it up so I decided that since I have never experience anything like this before I'd see if I could stomach it long enough to watch. So I stood there and watched him cut the head off, stick his arm clear up the thing (it was already gutted) and was trying to pull something out, the wind pipe or something, I don't know. Pour water down it to clean it out, they ended up taking too long switching the way they had it tied up on the tree that I got distracted and didn't watch him skin it. It was so weird, Quin couldn't believe I watched what I did when I finally walked back to the trailer. In a way it was awesome, there was a guy there talking about how he loves to kill elk and all that to feed his family. Hunters are a whole other breed then us, that is for sure. Two guys that go up there every year and their fathers fathers have gone to the same spot every year, well one of the guys had a bull tag so him and this other guy stood up on a platform in the trees for 11 hours not talking or moving waiting to kill the bull. They peed once that entire time, and never got anything. I don't get it. But it really is fun going up with them. We're going again this weekend.

It Doesn't Get Better Then This...

Thursday we went to Kenny Chesney. Our friend Rob always calls the same guy for a taxi on the weekends, so he called that guy and set up a limo since everyone we were going with lives in utah county for one, and the parking at the rio tinto stadium is ridiculous for two, nobody wanted to drive. Everyone has been telling everyone about the limo we're getting... well come Thursday, the guy calls Rob and says that the limo is double booked and the other people are offering more money so he can send two lincoln cars. But we all wanted to go together and the limo driver found a big van for us to take, and he paid for it because of the mix up. So we all met over at Rob and Kelly's and our ride was there... Rob came and told us it was a bus, like to ones we take at the airport... Rob came back to tell us it was a senior citizen bus!! It was free for us, yes. We got to drive together, yes. Did we have a blast in that senior citizen bus? YES!!!!!

Here we are driving to pick Amanda and Jason up! The funny thing is, we never told Amanda the limo was cancelled. So up until we picked her up she thought it would be a limo. It was pretty funny when we picked them up!

In the lin to get in I saw Jenny and Tiff. I can't believe in the big crowd I found them! Quin saw them once when we weren't together too. I love these two.

I'm so glad someone got a picture so we had proof! Josh, the senior citizen!! HAHA

Friday we went to Chris and Jenny's for the 24th of July BBQ and fireworks. We had a lot of fun, but Quin got heat stroke out golfing that day. So poor him :( didn't feel good all night.

Bay took this picture of us.. perfect!

Sooooo while my parents were here my mom said I should try and curl my hair... since it's long the curl has come out but not much. Well Quin's friend's girlfriend has gorgeous curly hair and she told me to try and curl it too. Well while Quin was out golfing, I thought of blow drying and flattening my hair and cringed at the thought. It is down to my butt, thick, and out of control. I need it cut and thinned bad!!! So I thought... I'll curl it.
Here are the results... My hair is SO heavy that the top is sooo flat! I back combed the crap out of it and it still went totally flat. Also it didn't curl very much it just frizzed. I will try again with some other product. We'll see!

Saturday we had a bbq at our house. Just a few people came over. Our neighbors noticed how much we love bonfires and have given us so much wood! We love them! Sunday Quin's parents went out of town or they were doing someone for Art's work, I can't remember. But we stayed home and we watched Gran Torino and A Haunting in Conneticut. The last one freaked me out! It was based on a true story, even at the end there was an update of the situation. So scary but I love it! Gran Torino was not as good as everyone said, I thought, or maybe I just wasn't in the mood for it. It really started to get on my nerves that he was so grumpy, and that he growled at everyone. Also when he said he regretted not having a relationship with his sons, but became a father to Toa really bugged me. Obviously you can be a good father, just not to your own sons? I don't know.

This week has been annoying. Our buick needs to be registered and the check engine light has been on, well we went and paid over $300 to maybe have the light off. So this weekend we are not going to go crazy spending money. We'll see how that goes.
