TOTALLY WEIRD!!!! It was a super weird feeling to actually be the bride at a bridal shower!!! Things are actually starting to feel real........kinda weird but totally awesome!!! On Wednesday Mom and Tara threw me a bridal shower and it was a lot of fun!! Like I said it was weird actually being the bride but I certainly didn't mind it at all!!

Presents and congradulations, who wouldn't want that!! Just kidding, I really am appreciative of the effort Mom and Tara put into making a fun party for me!! Along with presents we played a few fun games and then ate some yummy desserts!! It was super fun! Only 24 days left and I am soooo excited!! Lets just hope it flies by with no complications!!


Matt drove to Portland on the 18th from school and hung out here for awhile!! It was super good to see him since it was the first time since we got engaged! Our time together consisted mostly of wedding stuff, getting the announcements done, stuffed and sent!! Matt did a lot of it while I was working, what a stud!! Monday we went to the beach with a couple friends and had a bonfire and dutch oven cobbler!! It was nice to just relax and enjoy ourselves. We can't wait to finally get married!! Although its only been about a four month engagement it feels like its been A LOT longer!! The plans seem to be falling nicely into place, which is good because I do not want a stressful wedding!!! We are happy to be together and are excited to be sealed as a family forever!

Crazy Day at the Compound!!!

Today Abby, Mac, and I went to the compound to goof around a little bit!! Tara and I took care of the sun bathing while Mac and Abby rode around on the quad and motorcycle!! I would have showed them both up but I didn't have the right attire!!!
Basically it was just a day of chillin' and lots of playing!! These are a few pictures of us down on the track, we had tons of fun!!

49 Days and Counting!!!!

ONLY 49 DAYS UNTIL MATT AND I TIE THE KNOT!!! WAHOO!!! The past couple of days Mom and I have really started to work on the wedding and the reality of it all began to hit me!! At this point it's still kind of weird to think that it is all really happening but the excitement of it all well exceeds any other emotion!! I can't wait to spend eternity with my very best friend!! Matt is a good man and I am truly blessed to have him in my life!! I LOVE YOU MATT!!!

Fishing the _______ River in Yellowstone

This is Matt at the Targhee National Forest on another one of his fishing adventures in Yellowstone!! Man is he a stud!!! Only a month and a half or so and I'll be right along side him holding a fish of my own!!! The first picture is Matt with a cut throat, size unknown and the second picture is the biggest white fish Matt has caught in his whole fly fishing career. And it was caught using his very own handmade bead head pheasant tail nymph!!!
