me. lately.

i would be lying if i said i haven't blogged for a while because nothing's been going on. between -work, wedding invitations, furniture shopping, a new job, trying to remember how to run, savoring ever last second i have with my roommates, more furniture shopping, bridal showers, planning my life, and planning for the big day-i've barely had time to breathe. but it's been good. it's made the time go by fast....i am 2 weeks away from being a mrs.
 a mrs peterson to be exact. :)

so. here are a few highlights of whats been going on lately...
 i'll let the pictures do most of the talking.

summer nights.
i am living the summer dream. no school. just work and play. i seriously cannot believe i went all four months of summer last year with it getting dark at 5. (yes, it gets dark at 5:00 pm in brasil. every night. all year round.) no fun. there is nothing i love more than a 8 pm run. or just laying out on the grass until it gets dark. while still being really warm.  my favorite thing lately has been the park up the street. 

 best friends.

this little lady and i are getting married a week apart. [which i still can't believe] she's on of my best friends...and sometimes we think we're practically the same person--except for physical appearance of course. :) it's been so much fun to be in the same place of our lives together...and talk wedding things with each other. she's one of my bridesmaids...and will be providing the music at my reception in burley...because she is one amazing singer. i love this girll.

our friends wanted to have one last little hoorah before we all moved out. (okay, im the only one moving out)...but you know how it is. for some reason it seems like the end of the world. yes i did wear that "bride to be" while in cafe rio. people kept telling me congratulations..and i kept thinking..."how do they know???...." 

one of my favorite things. us four were lucky enough  enough to all be in the same place at the same time. this usually happens about once a year. hol and mckell came down to provo...and we did our yearly catch up with each other. my favorite thing is not seeing them for months...but then picking up right where we left off. they are seriously the best friends a girl could ask for.
(picture taken last year....of course we didn't get one this last time)

on repeat.
i seriously cannot believe how many times this song has been played by me the past couple of days. you'll love it as much as i do if you listen. promise.

getting married {to do's}.
wow...what an experience. this feat made me so grateful you only get married once. i won't go into details...but everyone knows what it's like. and if you don't, you will eventually. im still having nightmares...dreams that someone calls me up and starts yelling at me for forgetting about them. scary stuff. all i can say is thank goodness for brian's family. i couldn't help but laugh when i noticed there were more boys than girls around the table putting together invitations. welcome to the peterson family. :)

our soon-to-be home:
our bed set and couch were delivered to our apt today. (the apt bri and i will be living in) he's moving in tomorrow and is going to be staying in it for the next 2 weeks. (while i crash with my roomies and then go home) he doesn't need to sleep on our bed until tomorrow night, but for some reason we felt like we had to set it up tonight. [mostly we were so just so excited to see it] we started at ten. finished at 2. and both work at 7 am? maybe not the best move. but we love it! 
my little structural engineer at work.

sometimes i can't believe i'm actually getting married in 2 weeks. 9 months ago i was starting to seriously think about a mission in the summer of 11. in fact, i'd talked to the bishop about it numerous times...and he put me in the "mission prep" class at church. well, guess who was the teacher? yep.....you guessed it. (what can i say? his teachings skills blew me away......but seriously.) so..9 months later...here i am. 

i'd say it's a pretty good place to be. :)
