one down!

oh guys...
i know my endless rants about how madly in love with scotty i am are probably getting so old and so annoying.
but i am SO madly in love and i dont care if you think it's getting old or annoying!
heres the coolest thing about today:
exactly a year ago, scotty and i decided that we were "official" and that we didnt want to date anyone else.

so for a whole year straight, THIS GUY has been the only one on my mind!
oh gosh look at him. he's so cute, huh?
i can't believe today is our one year anniversary. and not because "time flies by so fast!" or "it seems like it was just yesterday!" ... but because in all honesty, it feels like it should be our 10th year anniversary or something haha.
i know it's cliche, but i feel like i've known scotty my entire life! our love and friendship is the strongest i've ever felt, how have we only been dating a year?! haha.

we have had so many laughs and good times over the past twelve months. i used to think my insane level of giddiness would wear off after a while... but it just keeps getting worse! i hate spending any time away from him! (my mother will back me up here)

i really dont know how i got so lucky. i dont know what good deeds i did previously in my life to deserve such a handsome man as my fiancee.
i dont know why scotty thinks that he is lucky when i am CLEARLY the one getting the better end of the deal here!
i dont know if i will be able to survive the 2 months and 15 days away from him before our wedding while i'm at school. i dont know if we'll ever come to an agreement on a basketball game (note byu/unlv rivalry picture below) and i dont know if i will ever get sick of staring at his adorable face.

but what i do know, is that in exactly 106 days i will be marrying my sweetheart for time and all eternity in the las vegas temple (typing that makes me giddy, too). and i could not be more excited.

happy anniversary scotty boy. i love you!



i literally just got back from harry potter 7 part 2.
i am still giddy.
you may or may not remember that i happen to be a loyal harry potter fan.
it seems like just yesterday i was all hyped up about part 1... and now it's all over.
it's all over.
EW! those words are like fingernails on a chalkboard.

in attempt to overcome the sadness i feel when thinking about the harry potter series being over, let us go through my thoughts about the final movie.

1. i forgot how much i LOVE professor mcgonagall. she was outstanding!
2. hermione and ron's kiss after destroying the cup was definitely a favorite moment (and right before that, when ron opens the door "harry talks in his sleep" ...haha)
3. almost started to like malfoy... until he crossed the line when voldemort said "come join me" .... punk. wish he died instead of fred.
4. remember when harry, ron, and hermione were in the room of requirement and malfoy's stupid little friends set the room on fire? was anyone else thinking of aladdin escaping from the cave of wonders!? oh my gosh it was all i could think about haha. essentially it was the same exact scene except harry was on a broom and aladdin was on a carpet.
5. snape made me cry. snape's love for lilly made me cry, too.
6. i miss the old dumbledore.
7. i thought the last little bit (19 years later) was precious. to be honest, i completely forgot about that whole chapter being in the book until after the movie was over haha. then it all came back to me. harry's son was adorable.
8. i hope 10+ years from now nobody tries to make some stupid sequel about the kids. i'll die. you can't add on to these 8 movies. (does number 7 count as two movies?) you just can't.
9. neville longbottom = champ
10. all in all, i'd just wrap it up with the word "amazing"... my jaw dropped, my eyes watered, my heart pounded, and my eyes were glued. very well done.

i dont know what to do with myself now. no more midnight parties to buy a new harry potter book, no more racing with friends to read the book in a matter of days, no more fighting with mitchell to take turns reading, and no more midnight premiers drawing a lightning bolt on my forehead. it's been a bittersweet night for the potter fans.
