New Year!

It's been a few months since I've blogged, sadly, I know I should keep up on this. I was inspired to start up again by a new friend. So many things have happened in 2010 and I wanted to reflect on a bit of it.

January: I was finally able to ring in the New Year with the love of my life. My very first New Year's Kiss! Unfortunately, he had to fly back to Hawaii just a few days later. My final semester at Fresno State also began later that month.

February: My love and I celebrated our 2 year anniversary, albeit, in different time zones :) But I am so proud of how far we have made it, especially with the distance.

March: Pretty uneventful, just the normal schoolwork.

April: Served my last year as Student Chairman of the Fresno State Floriculture contest that we host for FFA members yearly. I also was able to spend another fun weekend with my mom and "Gramma J" at the Seven Sisters Quilt Show in San Luis Obispo, CA. This has always been a fun tradition where we remember my mom's real mother, my Grandma who passed away in 2003. At the end of the month, my mom celebrated her 50th birthday! My mom, my dad, myself, and my mom's best friend all took a road trip to Las Vegas and had a blast.

May: My love had another birthday, and I sent him a photograph of tickets to see Tim McGraw when he was coming to Fresno, not long after my graduation. It was his first concert ever! Final projects and final exams passed by and then my love was here for my graduation! Graduation was such a fun time, I feel so accomplished and lucky to have done this! We had such a great time, with all of my friends. Then I had a blast at my graduation party my parents threw for me. My love and I went on our own mini vacation to Sequoia National Forest and saw some of the most amazing nature and wildlife. After that we went to the Tim McGraw concert and had such a fun time!

June: On June 1, 2010, my life changed completely, William asked me to marry him. That was one of the happiest, but saddest days at the same time. That was the day he had to fly back to Hawaii, but it was amazing to know that we were finally planning our lives together. A week later, I started at my internship at Farm Credit West. I met and worked with some amazing people and I treasure the 5 months I was able to intern there.

July: My fiancé and I selected a date for our wedding, October 15, which coincidentally is my parent's anniversary. We were planning so many things and at the same time, I was enjoying my internship and my first summer as an official adult.

August: Lots more wedding planning!

September: I celebrated my 22nd birthday! I had a blast partying with my friends and family. It was definitely weird to not be 21 anymore! Plus lots of Fresno State Football!

October: We were officially one year away from our wedding! That was super exciting :) My internship at Farm Credit West ended, sadly, but I feel so lucky to have been able to intern there.

November: I was able to go visit my fiancé in Hawaii for a week! I went for the Marine Corps Birthday Ball and I was able to meet everyone he worked with and see the base where he has been stationed at for the last year and a half. We had a great time going sightseeing and finally being with each other.

December: I finally got all my paperwork in line and now I am a substitute teacher at one of the school districts near me. It was a new and different experience, but I have come to enjoy it. Then I left for Hawaii again! I was heading off for 3 weeks to spend Christmas and New Years with my honey. I had an amazing time and it was the longest time we had spent together! And we also got some REALLY good news! We got our dream venue for our ceremony and reception! :) We did have to move our wedding up one week, but hey, it works for us! I also was able to meet a lot of my fiancé's friends and their wives and finally made some new friends. I know it's going to be tough going over to a brand new place where I don't know many people, but I was so welcomed by everyone :)

Quickie :D

Lately I haven't been blogging here. To be honest, I can never come up with anything exciting enough to tell other people about my life.
I'm still at my internship, but unfortunately, it is ending next Friday. So I have been looking online for jobs in my field, agriculture and asking around. It's tough though. No one wants to hire a college graduate who has no experience.
Today officially marks ONE YEAR until K and I are married. I am very excited about that. Although, it does make things a little scary, knowing that we only have one year to get everything together. We still don't have a venue yet, K hasn't given me a guest list for his side, I don't have a dress, he hasn't decided if he wants to wear his blues, honestly, the list goes on and on.
But on a happy note: 23 days until I am in Hawaii with my love! I'm very excited to see him and go to the USMC ball and our packed schedule I have made :)

48 days

Only 48 days left. It still feels like forever though. And I know it will go by so fast too and before I know it I will ba back home crying and counting down til the next time I get to see him. I know so many women go through this too, but I can't help but feel so alone in this.

Even with all of the stress going on right now, with me being unsure about my internship, him with his collarbone still healing, and as always, the distance, I can't help but feeling more love and connectivity towards him. Lately it has felt that we have been closer than ever and more in love than we have ever been, even after being together almost 3 years.

Almost forgot!

I want to give a BIG thank you to Reina at Semper Gumby... the Return of Sunshine!
She hosted a giveaway last month(?) and I won a beautiful USMC necklace! As soon as I received in the mail, I wore it! I got so many compliments on it too!
I know I should feel very fortunate to have a job right now, but seriously, I am so bored! There is nothing for me to do, so it leaves the day feeling very long. I just wish I could get all sorts of stuff done so I'm not just sitting here, but I don't have any unfinished projects left undone at home, besides like sewing and choreography for the dance studio. Both of which I really can't do in my little cubicle.
I'm so ready for Hawaii... 61 days left till I see my love.

Hi everyone!
Staying busy here! Got my hands full with work, dance, and planning to see my honey!

Although, I am having some difficulties planning my baby ballerina's choreography!

Almost there!

Ah, 73 days left. I miss my fiance so much. Only 73 more days and I can feell his arms around me and feel his sweet kiss on my lips. Feel the security of his presence. 73 more days.

Crazy Exciting Life

Lately my life has been going through a bunch of crazy stuff!
First, DF just recently broke his collarbone (Ouch!!) He just had surgery last week, and is recovering.
We also just bought the plane tickets to DF's duty station so I can go to the USMC Ball in November! It still feels like forever until I leave, but I am so excited to see him. A lot has happened so far in the 2.5 months that I haven't seen him! Only about 76 days according to my countdown! Of course, I had already bought a dress, I just can't resist those sales at Macy's! I found a green dress :) which is totally different than any I have worn before.
There's also some other exciting things going on soon!
Although I have already graduated from college, I am still very excited for the first football game of the season! I can't just forget about my Bulldogs that easily! Next month is also my 22nd birthday, I can't believe it's already almost here.
And sometime soon I am supposed to go wedding dress shopping, should be super exciting! I am very ready to get this wedding planning officially started!
