Guess what today is?

Today is the 19th and that means in {FOUR}months I will be a married woman!
So the situation with the dress... thanks everyone for your advice! I have talked to four people that said it would be really hard to put sleeves on the short dress and have it look right. When I get married I want to look right! So i decided I am just going to go with a long to decide what one!

Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself!

OKAY so this is what has been keeping me up late at night..until at least 3 am {EVERY} night. Since the wedding is going to be in Hawaii it is going to be so humid and hot! So me my mom, and Kate were thinking about maybe me wearing a {tea length} dress. So we started looking at them and they are sooo cute! but one problem, no one makes them with sleeves. And I am not so sure I can pull off this look! I try to picture myself wearing the dress but since I was little I pictured myself in a long wedding dress! BUT I think it would be fun to wear the short one with cute accessories like a {birdcage veil} and a pair of cute heels. I keep going back and forth on my decision so I want your opinions on what I should do!!!
{Tea Length with Veil & Shoes}


{ one of my two favorite long ones?}

ah the decisions!

Sorry about the last two posts! Novels I know. I just wanted to remember everything that we did! Writing it made me miss home so bad! I loved being with friends and family!!

Last night me and Suli went on a date! We set my friend Michelle up with a guy Suli works with. We took these as we were walking up and down Waikiki Before we went to Cheesecake factory!

Where oh Where Have I Been?

I am just going to start off by saying the trip Home was AMAZING!!! We had so much fun, and the time went by too quick! The day I got back from Arizona I started school basically everyday I am doing my statistics homework because it takes FOREVER!!! BUT lets not talk about that because it is depressing to even think about.

We landed in AZ it was so good to be on the ground and I couldn't wait to get off that stinking plane, anyone who knows me knows I can not use the restroom on the plane, so lets just say I was anxious to get off. BUT NO we had to sit on the plane for 45 min!! Finally we got off the plane and could start our journey to Snowflake! We got home at 4 in the morning, Raegan had slept on the couch so she could be the first ones to meet us! She woke up gave us a hug and went back to bed! Oh how I love Raegan!

We woke up and began our crazy week. Early in the morning 3 teenage boys are pounding on our front door. They want to give that Suli guy a good talkin to. I said ok let me go get him. So they are all following me down the hallway and Suli walks out of his room. The boys get wide eyed and start backing down the hall. They all sat very reverently at the table and just stared at him. It was so funny, those boys ended up loving suli and wanting to have sleepovers with him! After that we gave Suli the GRAND tour of Snowflake, lets just say that took a whopping 5 min.We also got to meet Grandma and Grandpa Ferrell today! Then Suli wanted to do something fun so Kirk said we could go play volleyball at his house. So we went and ate some great Bitz and Pizzas and then went and played volleyball. There he got to meet Kendra and have fun with everyone. Later that evening Riley went through the temple so me and Suli decided to make Otai for everyone who came over for treats that night. Me and Raegan had so much fun making it with eachother. And let me tell you the drink was a hit! After that Me, Suli, Kate, Chelsea, Joe, Kendra, Randi, Misti, and Stratton all went to the softball games. It was so much fun hanging out with all my girls again!

Me and Suli woke up at 6:30 so he could go ride a horse! He was so excited he said if that was the only thing he got accomplished on his list he would be happy. When we were driving out to my uncles house Suli started to get a little nervous. I asked him if he was ok, he just said he was scared the horse was going to kick him. So my uncle saddled up good ole Bucky and off Suli went. At first the horse took off so fast and Suli was hanging on for dear life. Then he got control and had a fun ride for about an hour. I went in the house and slept! After that we came home and went swimming with my little sisters. Its a good thing we had that pool to keep us entertained! Later that night was my Shower. It was so much fun I loved it. I want to say thanks to my mom and her friends they did an awesome job! It was so cute and the video riley made of me and Suli is so cute. I got amazing gifts and had some great cookies! Later that night one of my good friends/cousins Speedy/Aaron came over to visit! He had just got back from his mission and we sat and talked for hours!

Suli on Bucky, Learning how to ride!

Today was the "big" pioneer day parade! We woke up and went out and watched the parade, It was fun to be around all our family and friends, I am not quite sure what Suli thought of it but I think he enjoyed it. After the parade We went over to the craft fair and got Suli his Navajo Taco he had been craving! But to his disappointment it had no meat in the beans. Oh and lets not Forget We also Saw Steve Reel!!! We didn't have the camera with us at this time but we met him oh yes we did! After that we came back to the house and swam with all my little cousins. It was so funny to see Suli with them Because they are all little blondies. Kate called us and said that we could do our engagement pictures that day so we hurried inside and started getting ready. The storm clouds started rolling in!! So Mckayl was curling my hair/doing my makeup as fast as she could! then the power went out. So we hurried outside and took some amazing pictures! kate did such a great job! And she really took charge of the whole Suli and his hands situation! Suli was twitching his had to do the shaka sign in all the pictures! Since he was so good We decided to do one picture with us doing it! After We got done taking pictures we went to the Rodeo! It was such a fun Rodeo to go to. Suli really liked the bull riding. In the middle of the Rodeo The announcer says "Well I hear we have someone here all the way from Tonga, Can he please stand up." Suli grabs my arm and looks at me and says, " How do they know I'm here?" Lets just say he was quite honored and excited to have him say that! Thanks Uncle Jay for calling in!! After the Rodeo Riley and some of her friends wanted to just go check out the YSA dance....Suli was NOT impressed. Rustin my friend and his sister Cordae and her husband called us to go spy on the little kid dance with them, so we got in the car and went to my house and filled up some water balloons. Rustin and Suli bombed the dance and got chased by cowboys. Suli was laughing and having the time of his life!

We decided to go to my family ward for church. Suli was so funny because he was sure everyone was staring at the "brown" boy! But really they were, I told him because we were just so good looking people thought we were famous! After church we went to another ward to hear Speedy sing! It had been so long since I have heard him sing and it was AMAZING!!! Speedy told me that him mom was going to cook dinner for me and Suli she was going to make him the good Navajo Tacos! She is the nicest lady ever! That night was Rib night at my uncle Jasons house. My Aunt Roni and all her family came over too. We ate so many ribs I thought we were going to pop! Suli LOVED the ribs he couldn't stop eating them! After dinner we had our crazy family tradition of doing the WORM! I knew Suli would really enjoy this one, He could not stop laughing I thought he was going to die, Suli also got down and did the worm.

the Delicious Ribs

I had the worst sore neck and back when I woke up! So my dad called and made me an appointment at the Chiropractor. So me and Suli went to Showlow. After I got fixed we went and watched Harry Potter Suli fell asleep. After the movie we went to Native New Yorker and got HOT WINGS!!! Suli was amazed that they had different flavors and ate about 25 wings! When we got home me and Riley and Suli went to Speedys house to go eat Navajo Tacos, they were delicious!!! AFTER that we had a HUGE family/friends party and guess what TONS of food. I thought I was going to explode! I begged Suli to dance for everyone and he did! everyone loved it and wanted to watch him all night!

This was Sulis last day in Snowflake! it was soo sad I wanted us to stay forever. We woke up and went fourwheeling! He loved going over jumps and sharp turns! He told me I was pretty good at that. We went all over the back roads of Snowflake. Suli kept saying how beautiful it was! After that We opened up my Grandma and Grandpas wedding presents they made me and Riley. They made us the cutest quilts! I am so excited about them! We took some family pics and headed to the valley. When we got there Suli had talked to some of his friends that lived there so he went and played rugby in the 110 degree weather. While I got dropped off at my Pantie Party with my friends! Oh my Friends are CRAZY that is all I will say about that. I love you Ashley, Sarah, Rachel, Cordae, Traci, Kate, and Chelsea!!! After the party we picked up Suli and went and met his FAVORITE mission companion Elder Workman. He has the cutest little family. It was fun to get a chance to see them! After that we went to Riley and Kirks apartment and spent the night.

Wednesday July 21, 2009:
We dropped Suli off at the airport at 7 in the morning. I was so sad to see him go! I just wanted to have him with me the rest of the week! Me and Mckayl and my mom went to one wedding dress shop to see if they had anything I liked, and then headed home.

The rest of the week was so boring to me! I missed Suli and wanted him here! On Friday was Rileys big day! She looked so GORGEOUS!!! Kate took her pictures as well! We had all the little kids at our house before going to the temple so it was me Mckayl, and Raegans job to take the kids to the temple. We made it just in time for Riley to come out. I stayed and helped Kate and Riley with her dress for the pictures. After that we went strait to the reception. So many people came and it was alot of fun! After that me Kate and Ashley had a girls night. Me and Kate slept on the trampoline and talked for hours, it was so good to catch up with her and have it be like the old days. Saturday we drove down to the valley, we got caught in a huge rain storm and had to pull off the road for like an hour!!! After that we started looking for wedding dresses AGAIN...not my favorite thing ever. Then we had Mexican food for dinner of course and I stayed at Kates house that night. Then Sunday I was back to Hawaii!!! I just want to say thanks to EVERYONE who made this trip home so SPECIAL AND FUN!!!
