Ok, so I'm a little behind...

I'm not real great at this blogging thing... so it's been awhile...

but one thing is for sure....

I've never been happier!!!

Life has come so fast, some days when I'm almost awake but still in sleep mode, I wonder to myself how much longer until Russell gets home from his mission and I'll see him again, and then I roll over... and there he is!!
We're both still adjusting to being married, well at least I am. Because of his mission Russ is used to living in strange apartments away from home and with someone else, I.... am not. It is great though, I'm not complaining, it's just different.
Our wedding day was the most wonderful day in the history of wonderful days!!! I'm so happy to be sealed to the man I love more than anything for all of Eternity!! The day was a blur, and ended so quickly, but I will never forget the smile on our faces or the love we were shown from our friends and family! Thanks everyone! We love you!

Since the wedding we've been trying to get our apartment in order. Once again, that is something Russ is better at than I am. Slowly but surely, things are getting put away and rooms are getting cleaned. And every once in awhile I make something edible for dinner... I am no cook, that's for sure, but one dish I made actually turned out!! Thank you Emily for the Apricot Chicken recipe!! It was delicious!

I wish I could say right here that "other than that our lives have been pretty calm..." but that is not the case. Russ was laid of off his job at the Deseret Mill within a week of our marriage, but luckily the Lord was watching out for us and he received a call from L3 Communications... today is his 2nd day working for their cafeteria. And it definitely did not hurt that he had gotten experience working at the best deli around (Leger's...of course) before his mission!

My dad is sleeping here on the couch near me. I'm so glad he is home, and ok. He's been sick and ended up at McKay Dee for a few days after having an emergency appendix surgery. His appendix had burst but it was up behind another organ and he had to be on strong antibiotics that can only be given through an IV. He's still recovering and on lots of meds, but he's home and it was great to see him walking around a bit today! I love him very much and it was a bit of a scare earlier this week. Just another reason to count your blessings!

So... life is hectic,
(the only way it could be better is if I was in Disneyland with my brother and my in-laws...I can't wait 'Til June!!)

Remember that one movie...

I know my Aunt does! And before you all go thinking that I'm using this to demonstrate how terrified I am, you must know how hilarious I thought the movie was.

So, I get home from work at 12:30 a.m. this morning and it hits me: Seven Days. Yeah, there are only seven days until we're married. I cannot actually explain how excited I am.

It's finally happened!! The moment I have been waiting for, for almost 4 years!

Last night, at Temple Square, Russell asked me to marry him!

My excitement cannot be described in words! I love him more than anything and everything, and just the thought of being his wife for the rest of Eternity brings tears of joy to my eyes!! It was a beautiful moment that I will never forget!!
I have never been happier!!

Russell, I LOVE YOU!

This is Jessica!

Hello Everybody....
So this is totally Russell's idea, although I love reading others' blogs. We are still trying to figure this all out and everything.....it's kinda frustrating that I have to use Russ's email and his name to post, but oh well I'll figure it out eventually!
Hopefully inserting this picture will work too, that'd be good I guess!

(yes...I know Russell is weird...)

Greetings Humans....

Yes, that is right, I have joined this cultish thing you earthlings refer to as "blogging". Don't Judge me. I'm new at this, but i'm sure i'll be having all kinds of fun posting my life events. I'm sure my Princess doesn't mind either.
For starters, I am Russell. Of course, anyone who visits this blog would know that already. I have recently returned from a LDS mission from Portland, Or, and am enjoying life so far. Jess and I are getting along swimmingly, which is an odd term considering I haven't been in a pool for over two years. I have a stunning collection of what many consider to be cool (or useless, but that's your problem) trinkets. Also, I am a writer, and love to draw and act up. I don't embarass easily, which means I have no problem dancing in the middle of a busy street just to cheese someone off.
Well, I'm going to be done just for a while. I want Jess to introduce herself before I embarass her... hmm...
