I guess there's big news...

Okay Okay Okay.. I have gone without writing long enough! Im sorry friends. But in light of recent big news, I feel like I should probably update friends and family. 2 weeks ago- I got engaged!
For those of you who don't know the story. I will give it to you now. Long story short:

Girl decides to go on mission.
Girl starts filling out mission papers.
Girl goes on blind date with boy.
Girl still planning on going on mission.
It gets closer to the date to turn them in, but girl doesn't feel right about turning them in yet.
Girl keeps dating boy.
Girl still really REALLY wants to go on mission but now is kind of wrapped up in boy.
Boy breaks up with girl to let her decide what she really wants to do with her life, and tells her to contact him when she's figured it out.
Girl has puffy red eyes for next two days, and fasts and prays to get some direction.
Girl receives answer.
Girl calls boy to let him know.
Girl and boy get back together and start talking marriage (a month later).
Boy kind of proposes.
Girl of course says yes.
And 9 months later- here we are!

Brent is amazing! He is definitely an unexpected curve ball in my life, but I love the kid to death! I guess that's kind of the point of the whole marriage thing eh?! I have always been one that was really scared of marriage and commitment. But with Brent- it just came easy. He makes it so easy to love him and trust him, that this entire marriage decision ended up being much easier than I ever thought it would be!
Thank goodness for a Heavenly Father that is willing to guide and direct me in my decisions! I am very happy and the date is going to be August 8, for those of you who would like to join us in celebration!
