I know, it's taken me FOREVER to post and tell all about my time with Jarom!! But it usually does take me a while so that nothin new! Being with Jarom again was so great!! We went 2 months apart this time! NOT FUN! But when he showed up, it was all worth it! First we went to get our Marriage license! That was kind of wierd and exciting! Then we spent time with my family and just hung out.
The next day, we got up bright and early to go to the temple! It was such a special day for all of us i think! We had so many people there to support us and it was extra special because Jarom got to be there with me but also because me and Scooter went together!! It was so nice to have him there and know that i wasn't the only "new" one! It all went so well and it was so fun to see everyone and be with them! I'm so grateful for friends and family who love and support me! I am SO blessed!It was a very spiritual day filled with family and friends! What more could i ask for? After the Temple, my dad took everyone to dinner! Thanks daddy!! It was lots of fun to just sit back and talk to everyone and eat! :) That night we played some games...PIT, for Jarom mostly! Its his favorite game to play with my family! He gets so in to it, it can be a little scary sometimes! hahah we still love him though! My family loves playing with him and when i get mad at him for being so crazy they tell me thats what they like! So, whatever! I think he cheats sometimes but he doesn't believe he does! haha :) Thats what makes playing with him so fun i guess!!
The next day we packed up and headed to California! Jarom still had school and work all day but he went in extra early so that he could get off early to spend time with me! He works SO hard! SERIOUSLY! I am so impressed by him and how hard he works for me and eventually our family! I am grateful for him and everything he does for me! I am so Blessed! We had so much fun together and got a little glimpse of what it will be like when we're married...him going to school and work and being so busy, not being able to spend as much time with me! Totally different from how our relationship has been. We're so used to our trips and vacations and when we're together, its ALL day! So this was a bit different! It was nice to have more one on one time with the rest of his family though, to get to know them a little better was lots of fun! I went to San Jose with his mom one day and we went to the biggest fabric store EVER! and then we went out to lunch and talked a lot! That was a fun day! I had fun with Jessica and Sadie everyday!! We went shopping and went for a walk! The SUN was so NICE! Jessica and Jan planned a Bridal shower for me while i was there! It was SO MUCH FUN!! So many people showed up and we played fun games and had so much fun together! I was amazed at how many people were there even though they didn't know me! It was so nice of them! It was also nice that Jarom was there. He felt a little wierd coming to my bridal shower but i was so grateful that he was there with me! Everyone pitched in and made me the CUTEST cookbook! I LOOOOOOVE it!!!! Thank you so much to EVERYONE that contributed and Jessica and Jan for working so hard to get it done for me! Holy cow, what a big job! But i really do love it! I've already started making some of the recipes! Its so much fun! Jarom and I also went shopping for my wedding band! I've wanted 2 of them, one on each side but he has always told me that i can't have that right away so i was OK with that! When we went though, i guess it was a good deal or i was being a good girl or SOMETHING but he got me BOTH of them!!!! sAweeeeeeeeet!!! We decided that would be for my birthday! Talk about an AAAAAWWWWWEEEEESOME Birthday! (which is TOMORROW BTW!)So i have been without my ring for a whole week and will be without it until i see Jarom again!!! Its kind of a wierd feeling being without it but when i get it back it'll be like a brand new ring! Jarom goes to pick it up today! I can't wait to see a picture of it! Its so pretty!! Anyway, this post is kind of long but to sum it all up, i LOVE Jarom and being with him! :) Thanks to the Lance family (and Jessica, Rory and Sadie) for letting me come and spend time with you and for all that you do for me and Jarom in making everything happen! We are very grateful!! Sorry no pictures! :( I don't really like posting without pictures but we didn't take any to post! Jessica posted some of the bridal shower and amy posted some of the temple so if you haven't seen them yet, you can check those out! :)
