Some Big News!

So....I have some pretty exciting news! I am engaged! That's right, ten days after being home he proposed!

Here's the proposal story:

We went out on Monday, December 19th to cut down a Christmas tree. Because it is more manly my beau brought an axe. He was choppin' away at the tree and then asked if I wanted a turn. I began attempting not to cut my leg off and he was taking pictures of me. Then something fell on my head so I looked down and there was a pickle ornament-which had fallen out of the tree. Then I looked at it and there was a ring on it! And he went down on one knee and asked me to marry him and I said "yes"!

I am very excited to marry my best friend and the most amazing man I could ever hope for!

He's Home

I have not actually fallen off the face of the Earth, my beau is just home. Right in time for finals! :]

I have mentioned before on here that my beau was serving a full-time mission with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Virginia. Well, after 737 days he is now home!

Awkward. :]

"A date which will live in infamy"

Today marks the 70th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Unfortunately I cannot get the video to upload, but here's the link.

But, this is another one that I really like. 

I am so thankful for those who have served, both past and present.

Final Blues

The final blues have begun to set in. I start finals on the 12 and they run through the 21. I have a presentation this week and an Organic Chemistry test. Ugh. I did get some fabric over the Black Friday Weekend for this dress. The one on the right side. I am hoping for it to be my Christmas dress and to make a matching tie for my beau! The only thing is, it has a lining! Eek! (I believe I mentioned that before....) BUT, I think I am going to go to an open sewing class to work on it so they can help me! Merry December!

Here is my dress form and me! I need to add a little bustage to it...It is almost flat chested, and I am most definitely not!
