Busy Bees are We

Cheesy title... again... I'm so good at those! haha. But its sadly true - maybe not sadly, but still. Jeremy and I are both exhausted and life for some reason doesn't want to give us a chance to catch our breaths.

Between work, and wedding plans, and oh yeah school (which seems to be spinning faster and faster lately) we've just been struggling to keep up. Well Jeremy is doing better than I am, but hey he's got a few years on me!

He's been really busy lately with midterms - well everyone has, but he's been extremely busy. And then (me being the great fiance that I am) asked him to accompany me in Church this Sunday as I have been asked to sing. So right now he's practicing the rather difficult arrangement that is in my key and dominating it I must say. FYI sometimes its frustrating to be engaged slash married to someone to excels at EVERYTHING! Well not frustrating, just embarrassing... yeeah...

I'm so grateful for him though. I had a major breakdown yesterday... it was bad. But Jeremy being the patient, kind, and loving man that he is just held me - and forced me to go to work which turned out to be a good thing in the end.

Its officially 58 (basically 57) days til we get married! Its amazing how fast its going by, yet it still seems like we have forever to go. We signed our marriage license application today so that was an exciting step forward! Well... yeeah... thats about it. We're exciting to see my parents tomorrow (its parents weekend down here at BYU), and thats pretty much it. Oh we also picked out our wedding announcement (finally) that was an ordeal ha. But tonight we just walked into a store and were like "I really like this one - me too" So we're gonna get it! Oh happy day :D Afterwards Jeremy was like, "I think I'm starting to figure it out: If I like one and you don't, I don't push it. If you really like one and I'm ok with it then I push forward and finalize the decision!" He's a bright one :D

Hope you all have wonderful days and even better weeks! Love you all!

Yesterday Jeremy and I went and started registering for our wedding. It was so much fun! Surprisingly Jeremy even enjoyed himself (shocking since we were in Target for about 4 hours - and we've still got a lot left to do). It was really exciting planning out color schemes and imagining what our little treehouse (nick name for our apartment) will look like when we get everything in it.

We're planning on going by sometime to check things out. We need to figure out what size bed we'll need and honestly the one time we were there we kind of laughed about the idea of living there so we don't remember much. But we're excited!

Today is Sunday and every Sunday I'm reminded of how grateful I am to have the chance to go to church with Jeremy. I mean, my ward is great - but there's something special about going to church as a couple. Only 69 days!

Loving the simple moments of life

I'm starting to learn more and more that there's a lot to be had in the little moments of life. Last night Jeremy brought me my favorite two BYU Creamery ice creams after work. It was so wonderful to sit and talk and enjoy our ice cream and being together. Sure it was 12:30 and we were both tired and stressed with school and work and the wedding, but its nice to know that my best friend will always be there, and be thinking of me. I'm so grateful for Jeremy and all that he does for me, and the chance we have to be married for time and all eternity in 73 days! Life is full of these hidden treasures. I'm trying not to be so preoccupied with everything else that I miss out on them.

The start of something new (HSM fans that was for you)

Today was quite the day.... woke up an hour late, ran to the bus stop... only to be early... and then it started to rain. Later that day while Jeremy and I were sitting in the Wilk (at BYU) I came up with the brilliant idea of starting a blog - voila! If you are reading this you have undoubtably found our blog. Well my blog about us - I highly doubt Jeremy will be doing much posting. But thats ok because my oh so handsome fiance is working extremely hard to prepare for dental school and is very busy. By the way he got a 94% on his anatomy test today!!! wahooo!!! That's right, I'm marrying a genius!

Tonight will consist of some serious studying, and FHE (please let us not have to play ultimate frisbee....). Well thats all for now! Hope you are all having a stupendous day and enjoy the rest of your week! Thanks for reading :)
