Been a little busy...

I haven't blogged in a while... can ya blame me?? I've been a little busy. Last minute changes to plans, little errands here and there (...I still don't know the difference between tights and nylons...), and general excitement about Saturday. I'm getting MARRIED on Saturday!!!!!

This weekend was pretty nice. Wedding plans are falling into place. I got to spend Sunday evening with my family and my nieces and nephew, and the ones that didn't make it to the family FHE, Hayley babysat Friday night and Saturday. It was really nice to see them all.

The highlight, though, was Sunday. We had our interviews with the Stake President. We got our sealing recommend before Christmas break, but because we were out of town, we had to schedule it after the break. But talking to the Stake President was awesome. He even got teary while talking to us. He said he could really tell that Hayley and I had the right perspective and that we are truly happy. I feel so lucky every day to have found Hayley. She's so perfect for me. I will always strive be the husband and father she deserves, and I know she'll be a great wife and mother. The Stake President reminded us about the eternal nature of families and the importance of marriage. It really hit me then how close we are to forming our very own family. I feel so lucky and so excited! I just love Hayley so much!

So that's why I haven't been blogging lately. If I'm not doing wedding-type stuff, I'm with Hayley, and I'd rather sit with her and talk, play games, watch movies, make dinner, make goals, or whatever. Blogging, Facebook, and email have suffered a little. Sue me. And I might not blog for another few weeks. But I think you'll all survive.

Can't wait either! This is how we like to see our single adults leave the ward. I'm going to miss you both.

That is the way it should be, nothing comes before your true love. Nothing else matters as much. Lookin forward to Saturday!
