I guess now that I actually have a free moment, I can update you all on what has been going on the last few weeks.
First off. I am so madly in love with David Eggett. He is everything that I have ever dreamed of and more. I’m the luckiest girl alive.
So, YES. It’s officially official now. We are engaged, and we’re getting married on April 28, 2012. 46 more days. eeeeek! It’s coming up quick, but we have tons of help which is making all this planning and what not a ton easier on the both of us. So thank you everybody.
We would absolutely love to see you all there to help us celebrate our amazing day. So if you haven’t already..... please send us your addresses!! Text, email, Facebook.
We seem to have all the major/important things taken care of up to this point. I have my dress, we’ve taken our engagements, we found the location, colors are picked, announcements are in the process, showers are being planned, we’re registered at Bed Bath & Beyond and also Target, but there is still lots more planning to do.
So here is the proposal story.......
As all of you know, Dave and I love boating (he more than I) but it is something that means a lot to us. He ordered the ring online and we had been anxiously waiting for it to come each day. I knew that he wouldn’t actually pop the question the day he got it but I had hope that he might. All weekend long he had been telling me that he was going to hold onto the ring a couple days before he actually proposed.... just to drive me crazy. (remember this later on) So on Monday, March 5 Dave calls me and tells me someone wanted to buy his boat and that him and his friends were up at his house cleaning it before the guy came to pick it up. Oh and that he had borrowed a motorcycle and wanted to take me on a ride. The whole way up he kept saying “what if the ring is on the porch when we get there?” “what if we see the UPS truck drive down as we’re driving up?” saying all these things to drive me up the wall. So we get to his house, everyone is just chillin in the boat. Dave and I are sitting there and I ask him not to show anyone but his parents when he actually gets the ring. He tells me that he wants to show his friends also, so of course I start to pout. As I’m sitting there butt hurt, I don’t notice all his friends get up and leave, turn on the song “Gravity” by John Mayer, and Andrew standing in the middle of the road facing the opposite direction, and Dave telling me to come stand by him on the back of the boat. Anywhooo.... I eventually get up to give him a hug and he pulls the ring out and says “Fine, I’ll show you first”. Gets down on one knee and asks me to marry him. I was completely surprised, I started hyperventilating. And then I said yes. he put the ring on my finger. and now it’s official. That day was the happiest day of my life this far and I can’t wait until the day that I get to marry my best friend.
This past Tuesday I celebrated my 21st birthday. . . . am I really 21?!! It was definitely by far THE best birthday I’ve had so far. Probably because I got to spend the entire day with the love of my life.
Most people ask what it’s like to celebrate my birthday AND Valentine’s day on the same day. Well, I will tell you. . . It’s just like celebrating YOUR birthday. It just so happens to land on National “love” day. So while I celebrate getting older, I’m also celebrating the love that I have for the amazing man in my life.
I was spoiled this year!!!! Dave and I woke up at 6:30 February 14, 2012. Yes 6:30!!! and wide awake.
We decided to pass some time, by watching The Bachelor from the night before. We made chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast... and when I say “we” I really mean, Dave made them while I watched him. He got me beautiful flowers. We went shopping alllll afternoon, went to CPK for lunch, and then later that night Dave took me to Ruth’s Chris Steak House for dinner. aaaaammmaaazing.
two thousand and elven had it’s ups and downs, it’s good and it’s bad moments but now that another year has flown by looking back on 2011 I wouldn’t change anything. The challenges and experiences have made me who I am now, January 1, 2012.
Looking back, these are a few of my favorite memories of this past year.
I was able to attend one of the many “So You Think You Can Dance” dance conventions held here in Utah with some of the younger girls from the studio. There are so many talented, amazing dancers out there and we all share the same love and passion for dance.
can’t forget the start of spring semester at SLCC, blah. (not a fan of school)
I celebrated my 20th birthday in California with these lovely peeps.
I got those good old wisdom teeth taken out, and don’t even worry I was awake for the whole gosh darn thing. Loratab was my best friend. . . . I’m just glad that my cheeks didn’t get all big and swollen.
We also went to the Festival of Colors for the first time this year with only the most fun people you could ever go with.
oh! and these two love birds finally got hitched March 2011
We spent a very (and I mean VERY) much needed vacation in St. George, of course it was for our annual Dance Competition at Dixie State. But this year we spent quite a few more days down there. And Em and I flew with Jason for the first time. . . don't even worry, I was sick the entire time and almost barfed all over everyone.
Was the beginning of an amazing summer and we celebrated the kajillion June birthdays that we have in this family.
We had another Moultrie Family Reunion, but this year it was held in California. While we were there, we FINALLY went to Sea World. Seriously, it was the.best.day.of.my.life.
I broke my tail bone. . . . of course goofing off. Went to the Lupe Fiasco concert and were no longer considered Caucasian.
Found the most entertaining boys to hang out with, and had “Themed” parties every weekend. Had one of the BEST halloween in years, went to “The Howl” for the first time and to many other Halloween Parties.
Thanksgiving this year was amazing, spent time with the fam and close friends. aaand it’s been a year since i moved home from Nebraska.
December came and went. But Christmas and New Years this year was absolutely amazing, I just couldn’t be happier.
I’m sad that this year is over but I’m so excited for this coming year and for what it has in store for me. Happy New Year!!!!
