The Countdown

Doesn't she look wonderful? Mom with her sister
 in Utah a few years back, Christmas of 2008 I think
Ladies and Gentlemen (I doubt any men read blogs... lets be honest), so just ladies, my mom is in Utah right this very moment and I am so very excited to say that I will see her very soon! Right this moment she is at the Wight House, getting her plan on with the event planner, working through all the details like only a mom can do. I am so thankful she is here to coordinate wedding details while I focus (correction, try try try to focus) on passing those dreadful finals next week.

Also, I cannot wait for John and dad to get here, what a treat it will be. My family surprised me last minute with John coming, and I cannot tell you how wonderful that is. I got the news on campus, and balled like a baby, for all to see. But no matter, all the brothers will be there, which is a dream come true. Granny Phoebe... now how can we get you here, hmm? Private jet? Hot air balloon? the Secret Service? I've been telling people about my British granny and everyone wants to meet you (Whitney asked if you were coming).

But, I cannot believe the wedding is only 23 days away (what the?). But, to be honest, it still seems so far away. Maybe once the finals milestone has been reached, it will feel closer. Brent and I even got the marriage license yesterday.
And, we even found a used (which does scare me a bit, but it was so cheap) Queen mattress and mattress pad in the classifieds, which we are buying for $20 this weekend. Cross your fingers its in halfway decent shape.

Love to all.


  1. Your Mom is so precious to us, we love her and can hardly think how we will manage without her- BUT- it is your turn to have her love and assistance. I've been thinking about you both today and imagined that happy moment when you see her and she sees your Granny Alice. I think back to that time, years ago, when I went to see my Mum & Dad after a long absence. Love from Phoebe.

  2. I love all of this and I am soooo happy all your brothers will be there for you. I'm sooo excited!!!
