Life as IT gets closer :)

Meet my family!

My sister Sydney and I :)
My cute brother Ian

 And then there is that fun thing that I am in the process of doing. It's called packing... Just for everyone's information, I am sending 9 packages out to Idaho tomorrow morning. Maybe if I tell them I am getting married and I am just a poor college student, they'll give me a discount? I wish it worked that way. I would be a really happy camper. But we're probably looking in the ballpark of $150-$200. Sad. There goes some good, hard earned, McDonald's money.
Me and the FAM are headed out on Tuesday so this is going to be the last blog post before I am married. I am so excited to get married to my best friend. He is so great. I love him to death! And I hope he still loves me after he sees those 9 boxes that come in the mail. :) Wish us luck at the temple!P.S. Sorry I don't have a picture of my parents. I will sometime though. Probably in the wedding pictures!

I don't normally wish I was in Mexico, but as of right now, I do. That's because my other half is there and I wish nothing more than to be with him. I am out of communication for a whole 3 1/2 days. Yeah yeah....I know that it isn't that long, but when you're in love and apart, anything and everything seems like forever including this time I have been away from him. Plus, I am a baby. I hope he is having fun though. It will be considered his last HOORAH with his family before we get hitched. And It's official, we can say that we are getting married this month! YAY! It's very exciting. I will say that this engagement has felt like an eternity. BLAH! But we are almost there and as of the day after tomorrow, we will see each other in 20 days!!! I am beyond myself. I just can't wait to marry my best friend. But more than anything I know that the wedding is the ceremony that binds you together, but I also know that marriage is the thing that needs the most work. And I know that both Jeff and I are willing to do whatever it takes to make our marriage last for eternity. I love him dearly and pray for his safe arrival back into the U.S. :)
