A Perfect Proposal

I knew the engagement was getting close. We had just met with the stake president and he said that the temple D should be final in 1 to 3 weeks. (Keep your fingers crossed.) I also told Remii to give me a weeks notice so that I could get my nails done... haha

So last night Remii told me we had an errand to run at 10 in the morning. I told him it was my favorite class at the gym and he said we HAD to go to this appointment. And I have had high anxiety wondering when the engagement was going to happen so I was a little suspicious about this errand. Last Saturday we went to the mall and I was sweating the whole time worried I was going to get flash mobbed. So that night when I went to bed I couldn't sleep. 3 am rolled around and Ben came into my room complaining of a terrible toothache. Got him some Tylenol and sent him back to bed. Finally fall to sleep at about 4. My muchly hated alarm goes off at 7 am. Every morning I contemplate letting Ben stay home from school. Then I remember I have to be responsible so I finally roll out of bed at about 7:10. On the way to take Ben to school I call his dentist and they can only get him in that morning. So I turn around and hurry and get ready to take Ben to the dentist. Get done with Ben at the dentist and drop him off at 9:50. Make it back home to meet Remii at 10.

We start driving and I ask him where we are going. He tells me that we have an appointment to look at a ring. But after a while we pass Bountiful, then Kaysville, and then I am starting to wonder where in the heck are we going?? Remii has a great poker face by the way. We finally get off an exit in Ogden and pull in to a helicopter place and I look at Remii and his poker face was gone and he had a huge smile and I KNEW! We got the briefing to start our helicopter ride and Remii had previously already signed both of our lives away and we were good to go.

The helicopter ride was perfect and absolutely beautiful! It was over Ogden canyon and the snow covered mountains looked amazing. Then about halfway through the ride I look over at Remii and he hands me a box that was upside down and backwards! Remii was so nervous. Before he even asked I was saying yes! I opened the box and it was the ring I had chosen and loved. I didn't want a rock. I wanted a blinging diamond band. It is perfect for me and I love the vintage look. I have never felt happiness like this before and I have been beaming all day. I think Remii is pretty excited too. We went to chick-fil-a and he started crying. He said he didn't know why he was so emotional, he is just so happy! Or it was because they were playing this love music at the time and it sounded like we were in a movie. Haha

I will cherish this day forever. I am so glad that I have found the happiness and man that I thought didn't exist. Someone that will care and love me for eternity. And love my boys just as much. I want to remember this feeling forever and I am so excited to start this new chapter in my life.

So when is the date you might ask?? March 29th as long as everything goes through as planned. And we are planning on the good ole Salt Lake Temple. The latest it would be is April 29th but the sooner the better.

Happy Birthday Remii!

Poor Remii. Sick on his own birthday! I had plans for him to go tubing with me and the boys in Park City and my family was taking him out to dinner, followed by cake and icecream. But we had to take a raincheck on that for a week. I made some good homemade soup in bread bowls, and we still had cake and icecream. We have all been sick. Me and the boys have had the stomach flu. I barely made it through my shift on Sunday. And when I say barely, I mean throwing up outside of my car onto my nice work boots. Nice huh? Throwing up and washing bedsheets 5 times has not been fun. Can we all just get over this sickness?? This is one thing I hate about winter time!

Remii and Luke both love Transformers. So Luke helped to pick out a Transformers cake. And Remii got the 25th anniversary Optimus Prime. He also got Jordan's, an iPod nano, and a watchband. Love this boy to pieces and I was so happy to celebrate the day with him.

Paint Fight!

Usually I don't really do the whole dance scene, and I am so glad that I am out of the single life.... BUT all of my girls from VS wanted to go and dress up. The only reason why I finally agreed was because Remii was going to be at a table for work. I am so glad I went because it was a blast! At 11 they handed out paint guns and you shot each other with paint. And then my knight and shining armor saved me from the crowd and we dashed for the door shooting everyone with paint as we left! Sometimes I do feel too old for this stuff. Can I just be married and have a bun in the oven already!? Haha
After the paint fight..... I love this boy!

Christmas in Chicago

After we finished having Christmas with the boys, we left to spend Christmas in Chicago with Remii's family. Remii has one brother who is in the Navy. They haven't seen him for two year and he came home this year for Christmas. It was great to finally meet him. We opened presents and then the boys left the next day for Minnesota to visit their grandpa. So that meant "girl time" for me and Remii's mom. Remii's mom is such an amazing person. I have never met someone so genuine and willing to serve and help others the way she does. We spent our "girl time" collecting food and delivering it to those that are in need. And on our night that we we weren't doing service and delivering food to different families, we went to the temple for an endowment session and followed by sealings. There wasn't a whole lot of relaxing that went on for us, but we sure did have a great time together. I will be so lucky to be apart of such a great family!

On our way out of Chicago, me and Remii wanted to spend some time in the city. We went to the Navy Pier. A guy proposed to his girlfriend while we were taking this picture. It was cute.
You can't go to Chicago without getting a pizza from Giordano's Pizza. I am definitely going to be doing major damage control at the the gym this week for this, but it was worth it!

I didn't have the boys on Christmas eve or Christmas morning this year. It sucked. That is one thing I hate about sharing the boys. But I did get them later in the morning and we got to open presents with them before we left for Chicago. They always get so spoiled. Ben asked for a 3DS this year, and Luke asked for 200 Transformers. He told me this year to get Remii the Ultimate Optimus Prime so that he could have his old one. They both love Transformers, and I love that they share that in common. Christmas was fun this year with my 3 boys! I also got this sweet iPod Nano from Remii. He got me a watch band to put it in too. I am excited that I dont have to put my iPhone in my sports bra at the gym!
