About me

Uhh... I can explain.

Uhhh... I can explain. 

Okay, I feel like I have a good excuse as to why I haven't been keeping up with my blog... I'm getting married!!! But you all know that. I just like saying it. It makes me happy. :) #sorrynotsorry I guess that's still not the best excuse. I feel like if I have any free time, I either am spending it with Kelton or I am planning the wedding. Busy, busy, busy. 

So I guess I'll do a little catch-up of what I've been up to the past couple of months...

1. Dropped Drew off at the MTC!

I can't even explain to you how proud I am of him. He is such an amazing young man. 

Hey Mom, show this picture to Trevor! Haha

P.S. When did he get taller than me?!?

2. Got registered at Target!

My two favorite things: Kelton and Target. My mom said, "You must be in heaven!" She was right. Hahaha. 

3. Bought a wedding dress!

I went dress shopping with these awesome people in Utah! It was so fun. :) I didn't end up getting anything at this place, but I did find one back in Idaho with Brooklynn a few weeks later and I am in L O V E. 

Just a little sneak peak for you... ;)

4. Took way more pictures that I ever would have liked to take. 

My Digital Imaging class has been kickin' my trash. Haha! It's definitely a love/hate relationship. We went on a field trip to Bannack Ghost Town in Montana...I'll post some of those on here. I'm not the biggest fan of how much editing this class requires because I think it makes my photos look super fake... but I think they still turned out pretty cool!


^ Levitation ^

5. Went to Goldbug Hot Springs!

We went with a super fun group and it was SO beautiful outside, I couldn't believe it. It really felt like summer. I wish I took more pictures, but this is all I got! Haha. 

Shelby is a gem. Also, we had to change out of our swimming suits before we hiked back down and a creep was watching me and Shelby change...so that was good. Haha!

He is such a babe. Sorry. 

6. SAW MY MOM :)

Hate this picture, love this woman!

Kathy, Alex, and Cari were all a HUGE help too! We got a lot of stuff done for the wedding. They are so great. :) We are SO grateful for all of their help. We also got a wedding planner that I'm super stoked about. All of her events look so beautiful. Check out her stuff! {Rachael Ellen Events}

I also got some temple stuff on this trip and that is just crazy!!! I can't believe I'll be going through in a few months. :)

7. Picked a venue for our reception!!

Let me tell you, that was a freakin' miracle. I would highly recommend booking a venue the second you even think you are going to get married! Haha. 2 months beforehand was way too stressful. 

9. Asked this gem to be my maid of honor!

She's a babe and I can't wait to have her at my wedding. She has been such a great friend to me and is really just the greatest!

10. Ended an era.

Haha. I stopped going to my beloved chiropractor after going 2-3 times a week for the past 8 months... Jonathan and I have become good friends. Haha. Looking forward to settling my claim for the car accident really soon!

11. Enjoyed time with these awesome people!

My roommates are awesome and so are my FHE brothers!

12. Just lovin' every second that I get to spend with this guy. :)

Sorry, SO CHEESY! I know. I can't help it. I'm so in love with him. 

So handsome. What the heck?! 

Oh! And we got our engagement pictures done. But you already knew that. :)

Is it even allowed for people to be this happy?!?

See you SOON!

Watching all of my dreams come true. {Proposal}

I thought it was about time I tell you all about the most magical night of my life! I really feel like I'm living a fairytale... only it's so much better.

Let's rewind a little bit. For my birthday last year, Kelton took me up to this beautiful place just outside of Rexburg called Cress Creek. It quickly became our favorite spot. He surprised me with some floating lanterns! We each wrote individual goals on them and we also wrote a goal for both of us.

Let's reminisce... {Click here if you want to see the blog post}

So that was my magical birthday! Floating lanterns kind of became a theme of ours... which I'm kind of in love with. 

Now let's fast forward to January 23, 2015... I knew a proposal was coming soon, but I did not have a clue when or how it was going to happen. 

Kelton had suggested a couple of days before that we go out to Cress Creek because we hadn't been there in a while. I was a little suspicious, but he kept trying to confuse me...haha! He told me to bring my camera so I could take pictures for my photography class. So that's what we did! 

We made the little hike up there and I started taking a few pictures of the sunset. The photos do it no justice. It was beautiful!!! 

He told me to wait up there while he went to go grab something... this is when I got really suspicious! He was gone for a while and I had no idea what he was doing... Eventually, he told me to come over, and I thought he was going to ask me right then. I got really confused when he showed me a heater. Haha!

In my mind I was thinking, "Okay, maybe he isn't asking me tonight..." Haha I was really confused, but let me tell you, I am so grateful for that heater because it was absolutely FREEZING up there. It took a while to get it working, but Kelton is basically MacGyver so he figured it out eventually! 

Once we got the heater working, we were just sitting there watching the sunset and it was wonderful! I just love spending time with that guy. 

Then out of nowhere, I started seeing a bunch of floating lanterns rising up in the sky right in front of us. Think Tangled, except better. I knew right when I saw them that he was going to ask me to marry him. I immediately starting crying and freaking out.

I really can't tell you exactly what he said to me in that moment, but I can tell you that I was overcome with so much love and appreciation for this amazing man of mine. 

After that, the whole gang came up and we took some pictures! Shout out to everyone that helped all of my dreams come true. :)

I'm in complete and total awe of this man. He is the greatest example to me and my very best friend. He is the man of my dreams...only he's better than I could have ever dreamt up. I love him so much. I cannot wait to marry him!!!
