The rest of Saturday was spent moving me into what will be OUR new home. We borrowed Forrest's truck, which limited us to less trips, which was extremely helpful. The place is a disaster right now, but we are so excited for our new place. I realized there isn't as much storage space as a I originally thought, but we will get creative when we return from the lower 48. Plus, we do have this really cool crawl space that we can put a bunch of stuff down there. And one of my favorite parts about the place is we do have space for food storage. I been wanting to start my collection of food for quite sometime, but haven't really had the place to store it. Some may view this as excuses, but well....I guess it is. But it's the truth too! It was nice to get out off living in the front room, and having my own space again. I'm going to miss my last house and my roommates, but am really looking forward to the future!
ALASKA STATE FAIR
Monday was Labor Day, so Mike and I took Roy out to Palmer for the last day of the fair. We were ready for a break from moving and unpacking, so it was a nice break. Roy is our friend from church. We give him a ride every week to both church and FHE activities. The best way to describe him is PIMP! He goes up to EVERY girl, shakes their hand and says hello. He says hi to boys too, just not with the same enthusiasm. There are many funny stories that could be shared about Roy, but I'll just share one. My dad had come up to visit over Memorial Day Weekend. We were at church after sacrament meeting and Roy asks me if my dad served in Vietnam. I said yes, so he proceeded to yell down the pew..."Sir, Sir.." My dad turned around and Roy (who is also a HUGE movie buff) says "Rambo's coming out soon." I laughed pretty hard, just cause you can see his thought process. Anyways, back to the fair. We saw the big ole cabbage and other garden vegetables that Alaskans take such pride in, we walked through all the booths and ate fair food. My favorite was the Eclairs...it was huge and had a caramel pecan topping. It was oh so good. We also were able to manage to find a farmer couple so we could take a picture...cute couple, huh? Anyways, we had a lot of fun and was glad that Roy came with us!
G-RATED BACHELORETTE PARTY
Friday night the girls from work took me out to dinner at Suite 100. This was my first time at this particular restaurant, and it was SO good! I even treated myself to a few Dr. Peppers! It was fun to go out with them, and they showered me with gifts. I think we spent about 4 hours there, but we had loads of fun just hanging out and having a good time. Thanks to everyone for all the gifts, and thanks Christie and Kelly for dinner!
AND LASTLY...MY BRIDAL SHOWER
Unfortunately I don't have any pictures from this event yet, but I did want to make sure I mentioned it. Sister Davis gave me a lovely shower at her home. She had taken a lot of time and effort and I was VERY greatful! Kirsten did a great job getting the games, and we had fun playing them. All of my close friends came, and were very generous with gifts. It was so fun to see and visit with everyone. We all just visited and laughed and had a wonderful time. Thanks again Sister Davis and Kirsten!!!
So there it is....the 2nd to last week leading up to the wedding! I can't believe how fast it has come, but we are so excited! When I got engaged last October, September 13th seemed SOOOO very far away, but it is finally here and I can hardly sleep! I have been so busy with work, school and wedding stuff that it just flew by. I am so greatful for my mom for all the hard work she has done for the wedding. It wouldn't be happening without her! The count down continues...4 DAYS!!
