Wow, I'm Back!

Wow, it has been forever! since I last posted. I blame Facebook, so, lo ciento. :) It has been a whirlwind these last 3 months, and I've loved every second of it! In May, Tyson and I FINALLY got to meet, and he is fantastic :) he really is :). He lives in West Jordan, and we've managed to see each other pretty often, which is really nice, and I'm loving every minute of that as well.

Here's the Tyson story, because its pretty awesome :) So, my friend Nathan went on his mission and I wrote him pretty faithfully (he was dating my best friend's sister) and about 6 months into his mission, he sent me a picture of him and his companion. I thought his companion was really attractive :) so I asked if I could have his email address, and I emailed him. Side note: Okay, I am SO not that forward. Ever. So this was extremely out of the ordinary for me. Alright, back to the story. I got an email back from him the next week, and he introduced himself as Tyson Rollins. Well, from there, we wrote for the remainder of his mission - 18 months. Keep in mind here, we had NEVER met before. So, he got home from his mission in April, and at the end of May, he and his buddy Jakers came down here to lovely Las Vegas. We went on a date that Saturday, and he came to my ward on Sunday, then he and Jakers left to head back home. I went home as well, intending to go to Single's ward later on.
About an hour later, I get a text from Tyson saying "so, Jake's key won't go in the ignition." So, my dad and I went and rescued them from a Sinclair gas station at Pecos/Patrick. For you non-Vegas dwellers, the gas station at Pecos/Patrick is the most random thing ever. They ended up staying 2 more days :) and it was great! They left on Tuesday, and in front of Newby's auto shop, he asked me to be his girlfriend, and the rest is history! :) He really is wonderful, and I really am extremely lucky to be with a guy like him...sigh... :)

Work is driving me crazy, which is perfectly fine for right now. I don't work quite as much as I used to, but the pay is alright, and I'm saving up to move outta Vegas! Wahoo!

My best friend Dani is trying out for So You Think You Can Dance today! Just had to throw that in.

Baby Charlotte is doing wonderfully. The chubby girl is almost 3 months old already! I love that little girl :)

I graduate from the International School of Hospitality in 2 weeks, hallelujah! I'll be done with school, and I'll be able to find a better job for the time being!

I'm no longer in the Single's Ward! This thing pleases me, I was SO done with that ward, and I love being back in the Family Ward :)

Random fact: Donny Osmond's son was in my Single's Ward. And the Sunday when I spoke, Donny Osmond HIMSELF was there and we so made eye contact! I'm wondering how appropriate it would have been to ask for his autograph?

Ha, we really are goobers, I love it :) Basically, I am a happy camper. Life is going really well, I'm learning SO much through everything, and I'm the luckiest girl in the world!
