Ok, some of you are bugging for info on my man friend so here you go. (and those of you who didn't know ... now you do!)

Michael L. Christensen and I were introduced through a friend a few months ago. At the time we were both seeing other people and weren't too interested but I guess Jake was inspired because he didn't give up. He finally got us out on a date, and the rest has been amazing!

Our first date was to dinner and a movie, we went to the new Indiana Jones movie. After the movie we went walking around a park and found a fire side... like a place for someone to stand next to a fire pit :)

Our second date was even more fun we went shooting... I am a terrible aim! Mike is not. And he has a lot of guns :)

Shortly after this we went hiking up Logan Canyon and watched the moon rise, ate sandwitches and even danced on the trail, under the stars. Very romantic!
I believe he is my other half!

Although only dating a short time we have become really close. We have spent every spare moment with each other because he leaves for 2 months July 10th. Mike is in the National Guard and is going to training in Fort Lewis Washington then he is off to Bulgaria for more training. It is crazy, but it will be good. We are excited to see how the relationship will grow. Here are some pics of some fun activities we have done!

everyone else is doing it...
Ok all I guess I will update the blog seeing as most of you have. I feel a litte behind the curve. Here is what is up-

Mike comes home one week from today! I can not wait. From what he wrote in his last letter all is going really well at camp. They have done shooting and water survival then he left for 10 days in the field. When he gets home (Wednesday) he gets to start out processing. I think this means he starts getting ready to come home :) He is excited to come home for a few days and I am excited to have him home! My mom, his mom and I are hoping to fly out to Washington and go to his graduation this weekend but flights are not looking amazing so its hard to say if we will be going or not.

Spudman went well. My thoughts and prayers go out to Donald Morhouse's family. He was in wave 6 and passed away during the swim. I was in wave 7 and they cancelled our swim. My team did really well without me. We took 2nd of 6 (or so) teams. This was my 4th year competing in the spudman and all 4 years I have placed!

My family is great and hoping to finally do some boating this summer (whats left of it) now that all the scout and girls camps are over! Landon is now a jr. lifeguard at the Clearfield Aquatics Center. He loves it and I love having him come to work with me sometimes. I am finishing my last set of swimming lessons for the summer on Thursday! I am really excited Adam is trying to teach me how to wheely on a bike... He is being very patient. I am starting to get the tire off the ground. Most of my time is spent at the pool either teaching lessons or guarding. Well that is whats new!

OH BIG NEWS! The Clearfield Aquatics Center Lifeguard teams did amazing at life guard games. I went as the coach of the bravo team and had a ton of fun. The Alpha team took 2nd place overall and bravo took 7th! Teams from all over the state come to compete and this year there were 18 or 20 teams there so we did really well! congrats cac!

Long Overdue
Sorry about it being so long again between posts with nothing to do with Public Relations. Lots has been happening and the last few weeks have been a ton of fun!

One week ago today Mike proposed! I said yes! (anyone suprised?---- didn't think so) We are going to be getting married in the Salt Lake City Temple on December 12th 2008. Everyone is invited to the reception in Layton that evening. (there also might be a Payson open house, for anyone interested details are pending) So if you all want announcements (with pickin' cute pics) I need your addresses! If you are a relative or responded to the facebook e-mail you are exempt.

In other news... wait, there isn't any. For lack of other subjects I will tell you all how Mike purposed :)

We went out to dinner, and ate steak! It was super yummy. Then we drove up Providence Canyon. All the way at the top there is a waterfall that comes out of the rock, it is beautiful. It was cold and overcast. We hopped out of the Jeep (my car wouldn't have been able to make the drive, atleast without some serious dammage) and Mike pulled me into his arms. We stood there for a while looking at the distant glow over the hills from the city. Mike broke the silence with, "How 'bout it toots?" To which I responded, "How 'bout what?"

He then smiled kissed me and began to explain why he had brought me to this particular place. He told me that we were up away from everyone, alone, just us because this was the start of our commitment to one another and that just we were involved and soon the Lord would make the covenant complete. He then said that we were up with the clouds (remember its overcast) and that he hopped I would be on a cloud for a while at least and that I would be happy. He then mentioned that it had been reaffirmed to him that afternoon that I was the one he was supposed to marry and be with forever.

--side story--
I then asked him to tell me how and he responded with, "and there I sat, on the toilet-" We both laughed and then he told me the real story but I tell you all this to show his sense of humor that I and I'm sure everyone has come to love and appriciate.

He then said that last we were in the mountains. He talked about how mountians were very symbolic of Temples and that we were going to go to the temple and how happy he was that were are able to be together forever and have an eternal family. Then we went home and announced it to the family.

Well now that you are all super sapped out I will be done with the post :) Thanks for all your guy's help (and if you haven't helped yet I am sure you will;)

first blog

Mike and I have decided that the "my blog" should be our blog. However, due to the homework and junk that is on the other blog... I thought we should start our own. I will re-post the old stuff from the previous blog here then it will be all sorts of an adventure.
