Happily ever after!

WOW, So much has happened. After all the preparation, I am finally married! Shawn and I were married on June 26th, thanks to all of you who could make it and for all of the support! I am so excited to spend the rest of my life with Shawn. I am so in love with him.

My wedding day turned into quite an interesting day when we got to our house to pack. We received a phone call you would never want to get especially on your wedding day. We found out that our Harvey dog had passed away. It was a good thing that we hadn't headed to our honeymoon yet. Though it was sad we went and picked him up and buried him in Shawn's grandparents back yard. I miss my Harvey dog, but I am so thankful for the time I got to spend with him.

We almost put off our honeymoon but decided we needed to get away after that news so we headed on to mesquite and then from there to Las Vegas! We helped each other through the tragedy and all in all had a pretty great time! We Stayed in the Paris hotel in Las Vegas and when we got there we decided that we might as well up grade our room! it was so nice and the view out our window was amazing! you could see the water show and the Eiffel Tower... it was gorgeous.

Shawn also took me on my first limo ride where we got pictures by the welcome to vegas sign! It was so nice to get away and spend time with my new hubby!

A couple days after we got back, we decided that even though it was soon we wanted to get another dog. We had wanted to get a basset hound that we saw a few weeks before we got married but decided we would have a pretty full house because we already had a dog and a cat. So we called up the people and they had one male left so we went and looked and now we have Leonard! he is a cutie, but you know how puppies are.

Well that is pretty much it so far, time to keep living my Happily Ever After! I will keep you posted!

Oh yes one more thing! I finally passed my Praxis test!!! 3rd times a charm!

Engagement Pictures

Shawn and I got our engagement pictures done a few days ago and he was being the biggest goof off. It made it hard to get some nice ones, but there are a few that I love and they will definitely be on my announcements. I am making the wedding announcements myself and have them pretty much design, but I printed them out to see how they looked and they were a little blurry. SO.... Now i get to go mess with it some more. I think it is the resolution i will figure it out for sure anyway here are some of the engagements that I have edited to put on the announcement, I am not going to post them all, they are pretty good size so it takes a while to download.

We will be sending out announcements very soon hopefully, we just have couple more things to work out like the location and the time we will be getting married. Don't forget to mark it on your calendars June 26 2010! I can't wait to see you there!

Ice Fishing

I found out that one of Shawn's favorite thing to do is go ice fising! I like going as well, but I always whimp out way before he does cuz he is alway waiting for the next big catch. The other day we both experienced ice fishing at night. To my surprise it didn't start freezing until it hit about 12-12:30 in the morning. Then I reeled in my line and said Shawn I am done we have got to go! So I loaded up everything I could grab and started to the car to get it warmed up and so I could defrost. We both had a pretty good time and Shawn says that between the 2 of us we caught about 20 but I thought it was more like ten.
It is a good thing I like fishing cuz I have a feeling we will be doing this ALOT!!!

Tis the season!!!

Wow there is so much to talk about... I haven't posted in such a long time! So long in fact that I was single when I posted last and now I am ENGAGED!!! yup you heard right as of December 23, 2009 I got engaged to Shawn Gregory Orton! He actually asked me on November 27th but swore my family and I to secrecy until he put a ring on my finger... It finally happened and I love the ring he chose for me!

Then during Christmas Eve Shawn got to have his daughter Madison over so that she could open her presents! Her and her dad had a fun time and they even came in to vist me at work! I found out that Madison missed me and that she missed Harvy (our dog) alot more that her dad! kids are so silly. Madison loved her polly pockets and Shawn said that she really loved the polly pocket bag that I bought for her!

Then Christmas day came and I had to work until 4 at Dennys which was a real bummer, but i guess it wasn't too bad. I was kinda sad to go home because i wasn't going to be able to spend time with Shawn on Christmas but i was VERY excited to go home and see my family! We were opening our gifts and Shawn showed up at my house!!! What a surprise! I was so happy to see him and it was great to spend the holidays with him by my side!

The next day Shawn decided to take me ice fishing for my very first time! It was awesome!

We got to Otter Creek and loaded all of the stuff up and walked out on the lake. Shawn went to drill the hole with the ice ogger (i have no idea how to spell that) and the stupid thing didn't work... luckily there were others on the lake so we just borrowed one. We got all set up and it was pretty slow to start out. I even started to fall asleep when all the sudden my pole jerked and I caught the first fish of the day! I was super excited!

After that I was wide awake and couldn't wait to catch another fish! I went to someones abandoned hole and told Shawn that I was going to catch a fish fromt that hole! after a little bit of a wait I caught another!

Soon after my second catch it started to get pretty cold so we pack up with Shawn empty handed and left. We decided to stop at Piute Lake to see if we would have any luck there. We got on a pretty snowy trail and decided we better not go any further... it was too late to decide this cuz we were already stuck! We tried to get out for about an hour and by then it was dark outside! So we decided to dress as warm as possible and start walking to the main rode to get help and hope we would get a signal on Shawn's nearly dead phone along the way. We found a signal about half way through our walk. We got a hold of my mom and tried to tell here where we were, but the phone died! We continued to walk and freeze! We finally got to the main road and I am pretty sure it was 5 mile until we got to that road. We waved down the first car and they help us get the car unstuck! When they picked us up we found out that we had been walking in 3 degree weather so we are lucky that they picked us up other wise we would have froze. We got unstuck and got a hold of my mom to let her know we were safe! It was a crazy day but it was still a blast and I am glad that I got to spend time with my future hubby and my family!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and that you all have a wonderful New Year!!!!

21st Birthday!

I had the best birthday I think I have ever had! My mom came to Cedar and visited me and I was so happy to be able to see her for my birthday! Thanks so much for coming mom I love you! Well why she was here I made her a delicious steak dinner and then the next day we went shopping and hand a pretty good time! When we finished that, Mindy and I packed up and took off on our journy to rock it out in Vegas!! We made a stop somewhere between Hurricane and Washington to pick up Nate and Juan! Then the 4 of us made it to Vegas to do some damage lol!

We sure did have a good time! The main thing I wanted to do in Vegas was to hit up a club for the first time. That was one interesting experience! I had so many random guys come up and dance with me it was a good time though and when I needed to escape Juan was there for me!
Oh and of course another thing I wanted to do in Vegas was test out my gambling skills! I wasn't so good at it but it was pretty fun. I only lost probably 30 dollars so thats not too bad lol. Juan got in trouble for taking this picture but it is a great one!

All in all it was a fantastic birthday. The next day we went and saw the secret garden in the mirage it was really neat and we posed by all the statues.

I also got some good interaction with one of the dolphins! I am pretty sure it was trying to bite my hand off through the glass but we got some good pictures!

This cracks me up cuz it lookes like we are pointing and laughing at each other! This was one memorable B-Day! Thanks to everyone that called and wished me a happy birthday. . . the wish came true!
