EFY is Amazing

I don't even know if I can accurately express just how much I LOVE EFY.

I mean, I loved it when I went as a youth. I had a wonderful and spiritual councelor, I had a great group that I hung out with and still keep in contact with, I had great spiritual experiences of my own as I let my heart be opened to the spirit.

But man.... I'm bummed that I can't do it this summer....

I met the man of my dreams (my husband in 2 WEEKS!!!!), last summer, but thats not the only reason I had the most amazing summer of my life this past one. EFY just has this special feel about it. The only way I can possibly describe it is something like how I feel when I step onto the temple grounds, or when you're in the conference center and you rise as the Prophet walks in... Those are the only things that even come close to the feeling you get as being a part of that wonderful, inspirational program.

There really are no words...

I'm gunna miss it....

But for any of you councelors out there from this summer, they have put the session videos up on the website!!! I just was watching them which of course inspired this very emotional blog of mine. Enjoy!

Moving Right Along

So, as a little prologue, is my new best friend. Both Dave and I got our wedding rings there for a fraction of what they would've cost at a jeweler. And they're nice, like really nice and I LOVE them!

Here is Dave's ring (it came in the mail today and Dave was so excited he made me let him see it so "He could try it on to see how it fit" yeah right...but it fits really well, so we're all good) :

And here's a picture of my engagement ring:

And here's my wedding ring that I picked out. :D

In total it was excatly $154 (and some sorta cents) for both of them including shipping. And yes, those ARE real diamonds. I was actually looking into come CZ ones, but I liked this one the best and it was within my price range so, like I said, is my new best friend. :)

And all in all I am getting very excited for this wedding!!!!! :D Like REALLY REALLY excited! A lady in my ward is throwing me a shower, which I didn't even think I was going to get, so that makes me feel super special and I've got a house, and an amazing husband-to-be and a job interview tomorrow. Life is good. Very Good :D

Well, I finally sent the announcements out in the mail! They're beautiful thanks to our amazing friend Kristin Call! She did them WHILE she was still in the midst of her own wedding planning. But now hers is over and she's happily married, and soon mine will be and I will be happily married, and it will all be wonderful. Or something like that anyway :)
