Never Would Have Guessed

Remember when you were little, and you would think to yourself "One day, when I'm all growed up, I'm going to meet the man of my dreams and fall in love." Yeah...I'm no more growed up now than I was then. I've been thinking that way for the past 26 years. And now...a few weeks shy of my 27th birthday...I'm beginning to change gears from the "some day" kind of thinking to the "here and now" mind set. "Today, regardless of my maturity level, I met someone amazing...and I'm in love."

My last blog "So there's this boy" stated that the story was still pending, well that story has long since ended...rather anti-climatically- might I add- and most suredly not how I had hoped it would at the time. Providentially for me, however, God had a FAR better story waiting for me, and I couldn't be more grateful for His hand in my life.

About 3 months ago I met Chad at church. He had just been called as a Sunday School Teacher to teach on the off weeks that I wasn't teaching. (Yes...we are both the Gosple Doctrine Teachers in our singles ward.) I met him and the guy sitting next to him at the same time, and due to a series other guy actually ended up asking me out first and I dated him for a bit. Again...God had a different plan for me and for whatever reason things just didn't pan out between me and the other guy. Shortly after things fell through with the first guy, Chad and I started hanging out a little more one on one and quilckly came to find that there was something between us that was worth looking into. Turns out...we were right. :)

Formal Night on the Cruise!

We've been having a really great time getting to know one another. We've been to bear lake, and we just barely got back from a cruise to Mexico with a bunch of our friends, which was AMAZING! And we are currently planning trips to Boston to go to Trina's wedding and another friend trip to Disneyland! We both love to travel and we are having a blast doing it!

And may I just say, that if you have yet to go on a cruise...start finding a way to make it happen. That was one of the FUNNEST trips I have ever been on! gain about 5lbs every 2's totally worth it. :)

I never would have guessed that my life would pan out this way. But I am INCREDIBLY grateful that it did.


  1. So cool! Hopefully, we can meet him soon!!!!

  2. So happy for you! I am thrilled you posted pictures. Plus, what fun trips you get to go on. If you are ever out our way....come say hi!

  3. I'm so happy for you. You two are a cute couple. :) So, so fun.

  4. It's about time you posted something about this cute boy! =) I couldn't be happier for you then I already am Kandace. Enjoy it!

  5. thanks, sweet of you!!!

  6. hey I am out of the loop, I guess if I talk to you every 6 months or so, a lot can change. I think you have been on more trips with ths boy than Andy and I in 5 years. (unless you count moving blech...)
