December 27th 2008-I Can't Wait!

It's official! Stu and I are engaged! We are being sealed for time and all eternity in the Mesa Arizona Temple on December 27, 2008! I can't contain my happiness/excitement/giddiness!!!

Well here's the proposal story..

So Stu and I planned to go to the Kalai concert at Thanksgiving Point on Friday night (I was so excited, I LOVE Kalai and Thanksgiving Point is BEAUTIFUL. Plus Stu took me there for my birthday last year to see the tulips :) It was a great day) So he comes to pic me up looking seriously SO handsome and carrying a bouquet of tulips.. yellow ones, my favorite. Just so cute, but Stu is so sweet and he brings me flowers just randomly so I didn't put any extra thought into it. Then we left for dinner, Stu took us to the little restaurant that we went on our first date-Le Dolce Vita-which is amazing!

At this point I grew a little suspicious because I would have thought he would save that place for when he proposed, but he had told me earlier that the ring would take a couple more weeks and I didn't notice any box-like shapes in his pockets..

Anyway, we had so much fun being silly-like always.

We left for the Kalai concert and listened to the mix that Stu had made- that should have tipped me off too.. The concert was amazing!

After the concert, we decided to walk around by the waterfalls. We were pretty much alone because everyone was leaving through a different exit. We kind of had company a few times when some other groups of people decided to do the same thing we did.. Stu kept moving us along the path saying he wanted to be alone so he could smooch me hahahaaa. So we were still talking during all of this but he got pretty quiet after we'd been alone for like five minutes. (I guess he figured he was safe because no one had walked by in a while..) He dropped down to his knee and asked if I would make him "the happiest man... AWKWARD" Another guy happened to walk by at that same moment! hahahhaa oh it was so funny. I still didn't believe him because he had been tricking me all night with fake proposals but then he slipped something on my finger :) I just hit him ans called him a liar.. probably not the smoothest moment in our lives haha. But yes, a few minutes later I said YES!

I was so happy all I could do was laugh and cry and hug this boy. I love him so much and am so excited to get to spend the rest of eternity with him. I just can't wait. He is honestly the sweetest, kindest, bestest boy for me. I am the luckiest.


The Office Returns!!!

Oh what a wonderful night. Tonight was the season premier of The Office! Stu has TiVO at his house so we had a little party with some good friends and delicious peanut butter brownies :) It was a pretty good episode..

Favorite Quotes from Tonight:
"Every little boy fantasizes about his fairy tale wedding."
"When Michael told us Jan was pregnant, he led us to believe that he was the father.. By telling us that he was the father."
"Wait back up. You think I'm retarded?"
"I do not say hi. Pam I do not say hi!"
"I just, I can't wait.." :)

Stu and I went back up and watched it again, just to soak in some extra. ALSO, OH MY GOODNESS! Oregon State beat USC tonight 27-21!!! Holy upset.. It was a seriously intense game. I even called up my relatives who are die-hard Beaver fans to make sure they were watching. My sweet aunt Maria said she even made my uncle pause it because he was getting a little frustrated.. But not to worry, the Beavs hung in till the end. I love college sports! I'm so so hyped up about this season and especially BYU's football team. Hall, Unga, Pitta, Collie.. BCS here we come! Oh I love it. Luckily I'm dating a football beefcake who loves it just as much as I do :) Too bad we don't have a game this week.. But Stu's parents are coming up in three weeks for the homecoming game! BYU plays NM, It should be a great visit.

My other love..

I was so excited to get back to the states, but so sad to leave my family and Korea behind.
I hope to make it back someday!

Trip with the cousins down to Busan. This was at Hyundei Beach with Heera.

Stu came to Korea! His first morning..

We went to the beach at Incheon. Best trip ever!


I love traditional Korean architecture. I think this is one of the temples?

Korean seafood market. Looks appetizing right?

Family outing on Korean Memorial Day. I love them!

With friends from Church, Janie and Hazel. Coldstone in Korea!

The Seoul Temple. Just beautiful.

I went to Korea this summer to visit my family and teach English.
It was seriously one of the best/hardest experiences I've ever had.
This is my absolutely adorable cousin Hi-Young on my first day in the country.
