Thursday morning Jeff basically told me that I was sleeping in because we both went to bed super late. I am so grateful for him. He is so great to me. I am such a lucky girl. After he got done with his classes, he came back and woke me up. I hated waking up, but loved having him there to do it. He is my best friend. That day we went to Pocatello, Idaho to a wedding decoration place called Country Creations. It was the best. The lady was so helpful. She basically has a barn next to her house where she does all her business. She has wedding backdrops, all the table clothes, and even tables. Doing it there made it so easy. Wish we had one in Ohio, but it's not wedding country out here. Welcome to Idaho; It's in the potatoes! Before we went back to Idaho Falls, we decided to grab some lunch at Wendy's. Here's Jeff and I. We probably looked silly doing this since it was in front of the door, but that's alright. haha
After we came back and waited for John (Jeff's brother) to get back from work and went to the courthouse to get our wedding license. When we got there, we had no idea where to go. So we decided something with the name of social in it might be a good place to start. I mean, it's kind of a social thing to get married, right? No such luck, she gave us directions to go upstairs. When we got to the top, we had to go through a mini security thing (just to make sure we weren't trying to bring a gun into the court rooms or something). Jeff didn't have such good luck with that. I guess his shoes have nice soles that contain metal? Interesting. When we made it to the right place we were met by an unhappy lady. Oh well. We got what we wanted. While we were in there filling out paper work, though, a lady came in and told the other lady behind the desk that she was getting married in the morning and didn't know if her husband would make it in time before they closed. They told her to bring him back in the morning. They were scheduled to get married in the Idaho Falls temple at 9 the next morning. We wished her luck.
When we got back from that field trip, we went to a potential wedding luncheon place for dinner. It was very good. I'm sorry though, I forgot what it is called. After that we rode over on bikes to a man's (in Jeff's home ward) house who does catering to see what he could offer us for the wedding luncheon and it seemed like a "go" until the next day when he called and said that he actually can't do it, so that part is still in the works, but we'll figure it out. After we made that stop, Jeff, me, John, and his friend Cindy went to see Transformers 3. I thought that it was a really good movie, but I don't think Jeff liked it as much.
The next day was Friday and normally Friday's make me happy, but not when I know that I am leaving someone great in a matter of a couple days. That morning I went with Jeff to his science class with him, it was fun. I just love being with him, it doesn't matter what we are doing. After class we sat in the MC (also known as the cafeteria) and I ate food and we just hung out. He left me a while later to go to work and my friends showed up a little after that.
I told all my friends to meet me there so I could give them a wedding announcement. One of them actually has a blog; LaKesha, I met her in math class first semester! It is almost impossible to meet up with all of my friends in one week. It makes for a surely crazy week! After that I hung out with my roommate Brooklyn and Kylee and their roomates for a while at their apartment talking about getting married. We had a nice talk. His parents then picked me up and we stopped by the taco bus on the way to his work. They dropped me off and I spent the night there helping him and his friend Grayden make ice cream for Reed's Dairy. It was fun but tiring. That night we stayed up late once again. It was so much fun. I am in love with this man.
The next morning me, Jeff, and hos mom all left for Utah. When we got to his grandparents house in Ogden, we took his grandma with us and went to this craft store called Quilted Bear. This was in an effort to find ties for all the men in the immediate family for the wedding. We found 4 of the same ones and had to deal with a few different other ones. I think it will still look very nice though. When we got back, Jeff and I went to Salt Lake. First we hit temple square. I love temple square. It is always so much fun. It makes me want to be a missionary, but it looks like that won't happen (not me being single anyways), that's okay though. I am ready to marry my best friend. I got my temple dress that day, so that was really exciting. Later we went to the Gateway mall not too far away. I love this mall because it is outside. I think outside malls are so much fun. I enjoy myself. We ate Panda Express for dinner and it was so yummy! I wish we had them here in Ohio, but it's probably better that we don't. After walking around for a while, we left to go see Jamie, Ryan, and the twins. We ended up going to Dillard's and other stores with them to find some wedding outfits. After that we got back to his grandparents house and said bye to Jamie and Ryan. Jeff and I stayed up late that night, once again. It seems to be routine around him. And the next day was so sad. We went to sacrament meeting at a church down the road and then we went back to his grandparents house. About an hour later we headed for the airport. I was sad the whole way down, but tried to make the most of it. We got to the airport and parked. We waited in this line to get my ticket that took forever and waited in a forever long security line. I didn't want to say goodbye. I was standing in the security line and he came over to me and kissed me across the separator and that was the last kiss I will get from him until 2 days before our wedding. I love him dearly and I am the luckiest girl on the planet!
