Love at First Sight

So no... I'm not talking about Tyler again. Although it pretty much was love at first sight with him too. But today I'm talking about these bad boys!...

Do you see these books?! I mean really look at them! Are they not the most beautiful thing you've ever seen?! They have all of the classics bound like this! How could anyone see them and not just love them? Because I saw them at first glance and fell in love with them. So go here to see them. Buy them.

Just so you know... I'm getting married in 22 days. My birthday is in April. It's even on Easter. That's 3 celebrations in the next month or so. Maybe I'll get lucky and get one of these for every celebration? Wouldn't a couple of these look so wonderful in an Easter basket on Easter morning on my birthday?

I sure think so. You should too.


Growing Old

He looked old tonight. Sad even. Maybe a better word is reminiscent. His face was drawn together in concentration as my beautiful cousin-in-law played her french horn during her final recital at BYU. He held my hand during some of it. I watched as he tapped his pointer finger on the armrest of his chair to the beat of the music playing-just like he used to do when I was little when we would listen to classical music. Those were some of my favorite days when I could sit on his lap and play Pipe Dream on his computer or Chess while he taught me the classics of Mozart, Chopin, Tchaikovsky, and Beethoven. During the entire concert I could see how his face conveyed his desire to be back in the band room directing an entire class of eager students to learn their instruments in hand. I could picture his arms directing an orchestra concert and helping his students become better. I wish I could help him relive those days. I wish that he didn't have to get so old. Because today, I finally realized how old he has gotten. How every moment I get to spend with him, how every hug and kiss should be treasured and cherished. It's his birthday at the beginning of March. Another year older and much wiser too.

I love you Grandpa.


Blessings of Love

After listening to Jon and Karen Bytheway's book on Tape- What We Wish We Had Known Before We Were Married...
Me: So how do you put the toilet paper roll on?
T: Over the top so it falls down the front. How do you do it?
Me: Behind so it comes through the bottom. Why do you do it that way?
T (with a mischievous look in his eye): Because then you can HIT it!

This conversation has nothing to do with the post of the day. It was just hilarious. I'm so glad I'm marrying a man who turns into an adorable little boy at times. Seriously, who puts the toilet paper roll on the dispenser just so they can hit it if they get the urge? I'll admit, I just HAVE to put the toilet paper on like this from now on. It makes me smile.

It's Love week. I used to be indifferent to love week and Valentines Day. But ever since last year where I had the best Valentines Day ever, my idea of everything referring to love has changed. I love, Love! Especially when it comes to loving T. I've never had a more easy time loving someone. My bishop doesn't believe in soulmates, but you know what he has said? That you make whoever you marry become your soulmate. Guess what? T is very much on his way of becoming mine. He's the most remarkable man I've ever met. And you know what he's up to these days? He's working on becoming my dream man. I'm sorry to tell him, but no matter what he does, he will always be my dream man. In every aspect and in every way.

Wanna hear the best love story ever? (*Caution-I do have a bit of bias towards this one*) Click here to hear about one of the best days of my life. You'll get to read about the man that made me fall in love with him from the very beginning. The one that I'm marrying in 37 days, 15 hours, and 31 minutes.

Lucky Lucky Lucky me!



Me: "Guess what I got you for Dinner?" (handing him the brown paper sack)
Him: Sniff. "Racherito's?!"
Me: "Yep!"

You probably think this is a dull conversation, don't you? The thing is, you weren't there to see him go wide eyed and see his incredibly attractive white smile spread across his face. Yet another reason I'm marrying him. He loves the simple things in life like good Mexican Food.

P.S. Home Depot=Good-looking men. Ok, well, just one in particular. But I may have a bias.



T works almost every weekday and I loathe it. I detest sitting on the couch without some to sit on my feet to keep them warm. I hate not having someone to talk to when I need a break from my studies. I highly dislike the fact that I did dishes after dinner and didn't have someone come behind me and put their arms around me and tell me that they loved me. So sue me. I'm in love and I hate being by myself without the love of my life. Being engaged stinks. Whoever said it was awesome needs to get their head checked. Limbo between singledom and marriage stinks.

I love life though! I'm getting married in 6 weeks and 3 days. :)
