Hockey and other fun

Well it's been awhile since I have written so here I am again!

Every Tuesday and most Thursday's Alan takes me to go play hockey. When we first started dating I was not a hockey fan. It had never been a big thing in my town, all the hockey players were the pot-smoking, drinking boys; my parents didn't care about any sports and so I had never gotten involved in hockey. Well then I started dating Alan, and hockey takes up almost as much time in his life as I do. I had to at least understand his passion. One of our first dates was going to a BYU hockey game. That was so much fun!! It was one of the best dates I have ever been on, I really enjoyed myself. Alan plays goalie on a city league here in Provo and so I went to his games also. Soon I got hooked. Hockey is such an invigorating sport! It's non-stop action, every minute has something going on! So, in short, I fell in love with the sport, so when Alan invited me to go with him to the BYU hockey class lab and learn how to play hockey, I immediately said yes. Well I've been playing for about 6 weeks now. I'm still not very good, but I'm greatly enjoying myself. It's such a thrill to be flying around on the ice, and I really like to body check that endearing fiance of mine ;)! Haha! Here are some recent pictures of us being awesome!







Also, some other AWESOME news. My dorm's best friend, Alan Miller, got his mission call yesterday. He's going to Pennsylvania, Philadelphia Spanish-speaking!!! It's so exciting!! Congratulations to him! We threw him a party last night and Krista made an awesome powerpoint, hahahaha! Oh man, was it hilarious or what! She took a whole bunch of pictures of Philadelphia from Google and imposed a picture of him with a mustache on top of them all. It was rather humorous!

So basically that's life right now. Lots of fun with the girlies and both Alan's and just trying to stay afloat of school.

Because I Can

So I had an epiphany the other day. Mom and I had some issues about the wedding and we weren't talking very clearly. I was pretty upset when we were done talking. Somers wandered in my room and asked if I was okay. I told her that mom and I had fought about the wedding. Then I just spilled everything. I told her how I was sick of planning the wedding, I was sick of social pressures to have a super nice reception, really nice announcements and the best photographer around. I really don't care that much about my receptions and the stupid announcements. All I care about is getting married to the love of my life and sealed for time and all eternity. After that, pictures are important, just because I want something that captures that time. She helped me to see that the social pressures are crap, that I need to do what will make me happy, and for me, that means simple, nice, and not expensive. So there you have it, a nice, simple, inexpensive wedding coming right up!

So yesterday was one of the best days ever!! I was just super happy all day. Yesterday morning Alan took me to play hockey like he does almost every Tuesday. Yesterday was special, as he decided that I was ready to suit up completely. So I decked myself out in all my hockey glory! It was awesome!!!! I really wish I had pictures to post, but I don't have any, pooh! So after hockey, it was just a nice relaxing day. The roomies and I had a lot of fun, just being completely ridiculous (oh and Alan Miller was there also). Lots of fun times! Then Alan, the roomies and I went to our stake's production of From Cumorah's Hill. I felt the Spirit super strong. It was so wonderful! They did a wonderful job.

We hung out at home after that. We put in the movie "Kate and Leopold" and had a good time watching that. I really was missing Alan by that time and so when he showed up at 10 I was so happy! I love him so much. He then asked if I wanted to go to a movie, I said yes and off we went. Valkrye was an awesome movie, I would suggest it to anyone; very, very cool!

Tonight, in about two hours, Alan and I will head over to the hockey rink for his game that starts at 10:30. Right now I'm just sitting here, waiting for him to come home . . . .
