Tis the season...

**Warning this post is a little mushy, You should avoid prolonged or excessive exposure to this post because it is know to cause diabetes. May cause stomachache or in some cases extreme vomiting**

As the saying goes "Tis the season to be Jolly", I can never in my life remember being this Jolly or Happy. I am a pretty happy person, I usually am wearing a smile, but now it is a different kind of happy. I'm stressed and swamped, I have no time to get all the thing I need to get done done. But I am truly happy.

When Dave and I got engaged people came out from everywhere wanting to give us advice, most comments were some sort of complaints about their spouses, and a few where what I would consider actually helpful. But most if not all said how happy I will be. I believe them.

Happy is a word that is so very common. It is a word that every one uses all the time. It is so common and so over used that to say one is happy seems like a total understatement. I once had a teacher that would mark you down if you used adjectives such as happy, and sad because they just aren't very descriptive. So I'm going to use the most descriptive words I know for how I am feeling

Content, Pleased, Glad, Joyful, Cheerful, Blissful, Euphoric, Floating, Delighted, Enchanted, Elated, Gone, Heavenly, Rapturous, Spaced-Out, On Cloud Nine, Fortunate, Lucky, Emotional, Fervor, Yearning, and Zeal.

In short I'm happy. I am so excited to marry the man I love, My best friend and partner in crime. And even though I know we will have hard times, and not everyday will be blissful, I know that I will be happy, because I will have the rest of my life and all eternity to be with this man. This amazing and wonderful caring man. He is such an example to me and will someday- not anytime soon, be a wonderful Father to our children.

Happy Holidays to all.
And When I say happy I mean it, because after all tis the season to be...

Christmas decorating!!!

Okay if you know me at all you will know how much I love to decorate. My family has nicknamed me Rachel Ray, because I love to cook and I love to decorate... Not that Rachel decorates but you get the idea. And when my mom wants something decorated or "crafted up" yes I just made up that term, she usually calls me. I even decorated her tree this year... and the year before... and the year before, etc, etc. Anyways since I am getting married to a wonderful man that owns his own home I will get the fun job of making his house our home. He doesn't know what hit him. So we decided last night for Family Home Evening, we would get a real Christmas tree, and than decorate it and the house. I was in heaven. This was so much fun, and here are the results!!

It is still really empty... but for now it will do! I have plans to add more, but I think we made a good start.

Happy Holidays to everyone, I hope you had or will have as much fun as I had putting up your tree!

Guess What?!! I'm engaged!!

So it is official I'm engaged!! Last night My wonderful boyfriend got down on one knee and asked me to marry him!!

So we had dinner at Dave's house with my sisters and Porter. Afterwards we went to the park and played with Porter where he would throw sand down my shirt. We had a lot of fun at the park. We sad goodbye to everyone,and then sat down on the porch. He asked me if I wanted to go for a walk around the daybreak lakes and I said I didn't want to go I was tired from playing at the park! He asked me again and I said I didn't want to go!! I said can't we go tomorrow. He told me he thought it might rain! So I gave in and said I would go....

Side note I am a super big chicken, I hate being scared and I also freak myself out a lot!
Okay back to the story...

While we are on our walk I kept thinking it was dark and scary so I would say things like.. "what if there is a serial killer behind that bush right there?, This would be a perfect place for a killer.... What was that sound?... Did you here that?" The whole entire time we were walking. He was a little quite on the walk too... Which made it a little scarier because he wasn't being very playful. That happened through the whole entire walk.

Then we past this part where you get a pretty view of the Oquirrh Mountain Temple. I turned to him and said " Are you going to take me to the temple?" he gets all "Ahhh ummmm I don't know, am I?" So I was thinking okay maybe I'm not where he is, in this relationship.

We get to this bridge and I run ahead of him and stood in the way and I said "you have to pay token to cross the bridge" so he gave me a kiss and proceeded to tell me how much he loved me and how much he wanted to be with me and how he was going to take care of me for the rest of my life and that he did want to take me to the temple. I thought oh how cute and I gave him a kiss, but while we are kissing his arm starts to twitch and he was moving around.
H:"What are you doing?" and then he proceeded to get down on one knee...
H: "oh my gosh"
H: "What are you doing?" and he pulls open the ring box
D: "Holli will you marry me?"
H: "Are you serious?"
D: Yes I'm serious!!
H: YESSSS !!!!
I jumped into his arms... I gave him alot of kisses and hugs.
D: Do you want to look at the ring?
H: oh!! Yes!!!
And it was beautiful!!

The whole thing was a big shock and I feel really bad about not wanting to go in the first place, and making my self scared,I think it might have ruined the moment. I feel bad but not that bad!!! BECAUSE I AM ENGAGED!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am getting married to an amazing guy, who is my best friend!! Who loves me when I'm crazy, mad, happy, or sad!!! And I love him so So SO MUCH!!! I'm pretty lucky!!

I don't know any dates yet! Dave wants to do it before the end of the year... I'm leaning towards that side, but my mom want us to wait for 6 months!! I don't know if I can wait that long.

But I will keep everyone posted!!

Wait did I mention that I AM ENGAGED!!!!!!

They are Witchy Woman.

My mom took my sisters and I to Witch A Palooza. It was so much fun!!

The decoration were super cute... I love these leaves hanging from the ceiling.

They aerve you dinner and then provide a show! With singing and dancing.

This was the lead in the play who also was my High School Choir Teacher. It was very hard to view him as a "Love interest".

But it was still a great time, all around!!
