Winter Already??

        Well, it's that time of year again. Time for snow. It's not even Halloween yet. This UT weather is driving me nuts. oh well. At least snow is pretty, kind of. Anyways, enough complaining about this lame Utah weather.
         Last weekend Chauncey and I went to a birthday/costume party for his friend Adam. We were going to be masquerade people but we didn't have the right outfit, so we had to think of something quick. Jokingly I suggested something that would play on our age difference (which is 6 and a half years.) My idea was a joke, I was not serious. Chauncey thought it was hilarious so we actually went through with it...Are you ready? We went as a pedifile and a little girl. It was pretty funny, Chauncey wore an old man's suit and a creepy mustache, and weird glasses. I wore a skirt from the girls section at target (it was actually a decent length) and knee high socks. To complete the look, i had put my hair in pig tails and he had candy to give me every so often. It was really funny and everyone got a kick out of it.
        The next day, we took our engagement pictures, it was raining so we didn't do many outside, which made me sad. We started off at Garden Park Ward, which was gorgeous! But we only got like 15 pictures in, then it started raining and the photographer couldn't take any more pictures because the camera was focusing on the rain. So we went to the Capitol to try to finish the shoot. It's really pretty there, but the inside is all the same, and you can't really do any fun stuff because the setting is so serious. After we took about 20 ish pictures I asked myself if it had stopped raining. We went outside to check, and Hallelujah it wasn't raining anymore!! I was so happy, so we went to memory grove to finish the photo shoot. We got some really cute pictures in and I'm really excited to see them. 
        After we got our engagement pictures taken, we went to the U game. We were playing Colorado state. I had to get a friend's student ID because I didn't want to pay 20 bucks to get in. So as we are walking back from doing that, it started pouring. I only had a fleece hoodie, and Chauncey had on a long sleeve shirt under his Muss shirt. By the time we got back to the stadium we were soaked, and freezing. The first half of the game was miserable, we were both shaking because it was so cold. My feet hurt because my vans soaked up all the water and they were practically frozen. During half time Chauncey bought us hot chocolate. That was nice, it warmed me up. Another thing that helped was the fact that it stopped raining halfway through the second quarter. So that was good. The game itself was way fun, of course the U won. That was exciting. The score was 59-6. Poor Colorado state. They got crushed. The next home game is against TCU. It's going to be a close game. 
       I'm really excited for this weekend, my family and Chauncey's family will be coming into town! Yay! Wedding plans, Halloween and family time. It'll be way awesome :) 
       I love my life :]

Fall Fun

Well, Last week was fall break for Chauncey. Lucky duck, I don't get a fall break. Want to know why?? Because BYU is lame and the schools affiliated with BYU (IE LDS Business College) don't get fall breaks. Stupid. Anyways, he had fall break, but still spent a fair amount of time at school. That weekend we decided to go to Vegas to see our families. It was a lot of fun. I really miss his sister, Brittany. We had become pretty close, then she moved back down to Vegas. So I spent the night there the first night we got there (Thursday) and we hung out and talked. It was a lot of fun, and nice to have some girl time. The next day Chauncey and I hung out and put together three Disney puzzles! It was fun. Then we had dinner with his family, his mom cut his hair, and he took me home to see my family. He stayed and visited with us then went back home. It was really good to see my family, I've missed them so much. Although this weekend was fun, it was also kind of stressful. The wedding planning is going great, there's just so much to do!! I'm really excited though, we picked out bridesmaids dresses for Brittany and Cassi (Chauncey's other sister) and Alyssa (my cousin). So that was good. Saturday was Cassi's birthday, so Chauncey and I went with her to the dew tour, that was a lot of fun. I forgot how much I miss motocross. I took so many pictures, and we got so much free stuff, or "swag" as Chauncey calls it. Overall, it was a good weekend. I was kind of sad to see it end though. I really wanted to spend more time in Vegas. I love spending time with my family, and my soon to be family.
On a side note, Chauncey and I are going to get our engagement pictures taken this coming Saturday. I'm really excited about that. It should be a lot of fun. After that we are going to the U game. Go Utes!! I love my Utes. We are dominating this season!
Anyways, I love my life, my friends, my family and my handsome fiancé!  :)

So I decided to start a blog. I figured "hey, everyone else is doing it. so I might as well." No, I didn't really think that, because I don't use that phrase ever in my life. Okay anyways, so this blog won't just be about me and Chauncey, though I suppose it will focus a lot on our engagement, considering that will planning the wedding will most likely be the most exciting thing I do in the next four months. So I'm pretty excited about marrying my best friend, just saying.
So this is how he asked me....
We went to temple sq for our Friday night date, and he had a roll of pennies, so we threw them into the reflection pool and made wishes out loud (this was actually something we said we would do on our first date, but never got around to it, so I was excited. And no, i was not expecting him to propose!) so we are making the wishes, most of them focusing on marriage. Once we got done with the roll of pennies he pulled out two gold dollars, he made his wish and said "I wish I can be everything you want and need me to be to enter into the celestial kingdom" then he got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife, of course I cried and said yes. I was so happy! So then he gets up, and we hug and whatnot, then he turns me around and smiles really big, and says "K smile for the camera!" I was like, what? but there was this lady, taking pics and videotaping. She looked kinda weird with her black hair, so Chauncey goes, "do you know who that is?" I was like, "uh, no..." and he goes, "that's my mom!!" You can actually hear me say on the video, "No it's not!!" But yeah, it was his Mom, she had a wig on, his dad was even funnier, he had a mustache on that covered some of his mouth and went down to his chin, it was pretty funny. So yeah, we have it documented, which is nice.
So that was pretty much one of the best days ever.
I love my life :) and my fiancé!
