Princess Fiona

Ok, so Brannan won about 6.5 billion brownie points last night when he decided I could have a puppy. We picked her out online, picked her up, and now she's all settled in at her new house :) She's almost 4 months old, pure bred, playful, cuddley, doesn't bark (unless Brannan comes downstairs in a towel...true story), doesn't shed, doesn't bite (hard), hates the cold, and LOVES her squeeky duck (Ducky). I didn't think Brannan would ever let me have a dog, just because he doesn't care for them so much. When he randomly said we could have one, I about had a fit. When I saw her in person, I did have a fit. She's adorable! I tried to get some good pictures, but she was being a here's our newest addition, Princess Fiona!

New News

So recently, a lot has happened! Now that I've got those stupid nails off, I can type properly, and shouldn't have a problem blabbing my mouth off.

For starters, the big day went really well with the help of my family and friends. I couldn't have done it without them, and I'm so glad that it's over! The stress is gone, and I had a wonderful time at the temple! Brannan and I are now sealed forever, and it's amazing how tangible it feels. The difference feels strong. I love it! My mom, sister, and friend Emily deserve a shout out for all the amazing things they did in preparation. I wasn't the easiest person to be around, so I know they love me for putting up with my attitude. Thanks guys! Brannan tolerated my endless stressing, so I am glad he can put up with me too :) Love that guy :) After all the fuss ended, we all loaded up and went to Idaho to hang with more family. On the way home, I got a ticket for speeding...bummer! Brannan and I jammed out on the way home to Phantom of the Opera Soundtrack...I'm so glad he's mine...he's pretty awesome!

Last Saturday, I went skydiving out of the blue. It's always been one of my goals in life to jump out of a perfectly good airplane, but I figured it would be later on...Brannan just casually asked if I wanted to that Saturday, and I just as casually said, "Sure." I didn't freak out till everyone ahead of me was jumping out...If I didn't have a guy strapped to my back dragging me to my certain heart attack, I wouldn't have gotten the rush I had free falling at 13000 feet. I definitely recommend it!

Today on the way home from work, we had a flat tire. We were going 85 mph...good thing I had two strong men with me, or I would still be out there changing that tire! Dumb.

Now for some pictures :)
