wow has a lot changed in the past 2 weeks.
I am very excited for the upcoming changes as well as feeling a bit nervous. One thing is for certain is that I see the Kairos timing of it all.
Vacation with Justins family was awesome. Lots of beach, games, and beach.
I also got to spend the weekend in Palm Springs with 6 girls from church. That was a great time for all of us. We needed some time to simply connect with other ladies at the church and just gab it up. It was refreshing and nice!!
Moving along head first with these wedding plans. It is really fun and exciting and also tricky trying to be creative with not a lot of money. One way or another this wedding will be a fun celebration where all of our friends can celebrate with us!!! I am stoked for it.
Anyways, I am back on the blogging scene.

As of last Saturday night I am now an engaged woman!! Justin asked me to be his wife!!! can you believe it!!! I am so excited and thrilled, it also came as a real surprise. Let me tell you all about it.
Saturday was a great day already because we had been planning a date day. I knew what was going to happen that morning but Justin was planning the rest of the day and that would be a surprise. This wasn't a big clue because Justin usually plans surprises.
That morning we went to the beach and just hung out. We played frisbee and cards, it was relaxing and nice. We went back to Justins house and got ready for the rest of the date (this part was all a surprise).
He first took me to this AMAZING restaurant called Inn of the Seventh Ray. This place is amazing, nestled in the woods, next to a creek. It was so romantic. I thought this was the surprise.
THEN he took me to a park right on the beach. We had been to this park before on our 1 month anniversary. He had brought his guitar and it was really close to sunset time. We sang together 3 or 4 of our favorite worship songs. I was crying already because it was so nice!!
He then told me he had one more song he wanted to sing for me. He wrote me a song!! It was so beautiful!!!!! Oh man, I was a mess. One of the lines in the song mentioned....will you walk with me. So at this point I kinda had a feeling he might ask me to marry him (holy crap). After he finished singing he came and sat next to me and told me that he was serious about wanting to walk next to me for the rest of our lives and pulled out a little white box from his coat.........I LOST IT and CRIED!!! I was so thrilled.
The ring is the most beautiful ring ever!! Justin picked it all by himself with NO HELP from me and he couldn't have chosen a better ring. I love it. It is so simple and lovely!!
So, that was that. Justin is amazing and I am so excited!!!
We are looking into a January 2005 wedding!!

Anyways, that's the new news. I am so thrilled and thankful.

so, I just got done watching Dawsons Creek. And after thinking about it I realized why i enjoy watching this show so much. I think it is because these characters always seem to be so connected to their emotions. They are always so articulate when it comes to expressing themselves. I know it is just a show but I desire the same connection to my emotions as they seem to have.
I am reading this amazing book called The Emotional Healthy Church right now. It talks a lot about how many people, especially leaders in the church have totally separated themselves from true emotion, because they have been trying so hard to have the "right" emotions that they forget how they really feel. Anyways, its really good.
Yeah, that is why I like Dawsons Creek.

Now, this is sad news. Not even Knight Rider is any good anymore.

So, I saw two excellent movies this weekend. Supersize Me which is a documentary on this guy who ate nothing but McDonald for one month. This is a great film and everyone should go and see it.
The other movie was In America. WOAH!! Now, this is a great film. I was impressed across the board. Such a touching story!! One of the best aspects of this story was that their marriage has stuck through all sorts of hardships! Ah, how refreshing...a committed marriage. Anyways, I loved this movie!! you should see it!!!

So, I guess I thought of some stuff I could write about.
Last Saturday, was my moving day. The day initself I could write about for hours, it was a major disaster.....among the atrocities I drop a couch weighing in at about 900lbs. directly on my shin. It is awful looking now, and it is seriously hurting. These sharp shooting pains just keep penetrating my leg...dude, it hurts so bad today.

Justin got a new truck for his graduation gift. It was a total surprise, and yes I actually kept it a secret for over a month!!! He loves it and I can't wait to ride in it.

I got to watch the 2004 Scripps Spelling Bee yesterday. I am so glad that David Scott won. I like him a lot. I thought he was so cute. I did feel sorry for the 2nd place kid who earlier in the comp. fainted. It was sorta funny.

In other news, I got a Shrek 2 watch in my Honey Nut Cheeriosbox of cereal today. I am wearing it right now!!

wow, things have been busy. Not a lot of time to blog.
Maybe I should just stop blogging........I don't know.
We'll see.
