3 days to go

OMG, Im getting married in three days. This week has been all but fun and games. James and I met up with his family at disneyland yesterday. We had so much fun with his niece, Moneek. She is one of three flowergirls in the wedding. Just watching her face light up from seeing all the princesses and Arial saying her name made it worth the trip. James did so well with her that I just couldn't help but think of how great a father he is going to make one day... ONE DAY, not now! No honeymoon babies for us! Praise God for birth-control :)
Today was a packing day. Laura Paulus, my Matron of Honor came all the way out to have The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf this morning before packing. We are addicted to their Pomegranate Blueberry Tea Lattes!
I took another break to hangout with Lacey during her lunch break. I didn't think packing would take so long, but by 11pm I am officially packing and ready to start my new life with James in AZ.
My family and I had our "last supper" together. Chillies and Golden Spoon... what more could I ask for?
Everything is changing, and through much prayer and meditation on the Lord I can joyfully say that I am excited and looking forward to the move. Yes, I will miss you all very much but it will just make the visits that much more enjoyable when I come out.

Coopers Wedding

This past weekend James, Jenni, Robin, Ash and I loaded up in a rental car and headed up north to stockton for Coopers wedding... or should I say "Lulla's" wedding. Although it was quiet a long ways to spend in a car, it was fun with the group that I traveled with. It was nice to finally see James. He came around midnight the night before from AZ and the girls are always fun!
Here are some pics I took from the wedding. For some reason Ash was MIA when taking them.

James and I waiting for Cooper and Raj to arrive at the reception

I love these girls so much!

Laura and the girls having fun at the reception

Emily and Sarah are the flower girls for our wedding. I can't wait to see how cute they are going to be in their little dresses!

Toni was so kind to allow our car to crash at her house in Stockton. Her mom made pancakes the next morning. She has a great family.

Nothing beats wedding cake!!!!!

Our New Home

So, I finally downloaded all my pictures from... well, February, and I found pictures that I took of the new apartment James and I will be living in once we get married in Arizona. They school has been so gracious to us that they have renovated almost the entire apartment and put in new cabinets, carpet, and countertops. I think a new fridge too.
Here are some pics of the place I will call "home"

The entrance to our home

The living room. Luckily James collected furniture and what not this past year that will soon go in there

Here is a view of the living room from the entrance. It connects to the kitchen

Our lovely kitchen where I will be microwaving chicken fingers and corn dogs for my amazing husband-to-be

My favorite part: James and I both get our own bathrooms and each one comes with two sinks and a walk-in closet! A girls dream

Here is the guest bedroom. Grand Canyon University took out the desks for us to make the rooms a little bigger. It will be nice thought to have this spare room for all you California people to come visit and for a study room since I will be in nursing school at GCU
