MG Slideshow :)

Facebook was stupid and removed the video because it violated privacy rules... So I'm hoping all of you girls will watch it on here!
It's nothing that special. It's just us and our boys :) Sorry that I probably left some girls out. But there were over 100 pictures that wanted to be put in and that would have taken a lot longer. So I included random ones :) I hope you all enjoy!!

One Side Effect of Waiting


I can't date.

Let me explain. You know how when someone takes medicine, it won't effect them the same way as it might effect the next person? That's exactly how waiting for a missionary is. Every single relationship is different. And the waiting process is different for every single MG.

Well, I've recently discovered one of the major side effects of my own waiting process. Which is: I can hardly even talk to the opposite sex. I think I am literally incapable of saying "yes" when someone asks me on a date. I'm totally fine talking to my guy friends and my coworkers. I love them and could hang out with them all the time. But it's different when I know the guy is interested in me.. Let me explain.
About a month ago a guy came into my work and asked me on a date (I already knew him and he had my number from being in my institute class) and I turned him down. I wasn't ready. Two weeks later, he asked again and I said yes. I felt like I should get one or maybe two dates in before  China just to be social. And also just to reassure myself of my feelings for my Preston :)

Well, it was the day before the date and he texted me to confirm it. As soon as I replied with
 "yes" I burst into tears. I couldn't do. It's kinda impossible to describe why. I wanted to go, cuz he's a nice guy. But I just couldn't. Not because of what Preston would think, not because of what anyone would think, but because it just made me sick. I ended up canceling on him. He was so sweet about it and just told me to let him know when I was ready, and that he understands. Which of course made me feel worse. But canceling on him was the biggest sigh of relief. I felt amazing afterwards.

Today he came into my work and brought me a slushie from Sonic. Just randomly. And honestly, I couldn't even talk to him. I mean i did, but it was hard. I looked over at my coworker after and said,
 "I just can't do this"
I can't even talk to someone who I know is interested in me. I'm sure that something is legitimately wrong with me. Most girls would love that. Most girls are able to date just fine. Which is why I came to the conclusion that this is just one of my biggest side effects of the waiting process. A side effect for someone else might be excessive dating, or depression, or complete happiness. But not me. Mine is being unable to date even if I wanted to (which I don't really)

I don't need to date to keep me happy. I'm unbelievably happy every single day :) I love life and I've never felt so blessed. And that's enough for me right now :)

Anniversary Package to Him :)

I sent this envelope package to Preston today for our anniversary next week (July 8th @ 1:13am) :D
I know he's gonna love it :) It's nothing that special, but it's still special :) It consists of:
  • 20 pictures (mainly from the st. george MG roadtrip and just summertime)
  • A candy necklace. Candy necklaces have always been our thing :) 
  • 8 page letter
  • A "What I Love About You" book that I got from Walgreens. Can I just say, best thing ever! I highly suggest it. It asks questions and has fill in the blank pages. Questions like, "Our favorite memory together is" and "If it wasn't for you, I never would have:" and "If they made a reality show about us, It'd be called:" it was just really fun and I know he'll love it :) 
  • A DVD! He asked for it :) It's 16 minutes long of all our memories on video along with a slide show at the end to "Our Song" which is I Swear by All-4-One. 
  • And his favorite beef jerky. It couldn't be all lovey dovey stuff, right? :) 
So then of course, I got this from Preston the other day.
And he said I can't open it till our anniversary. How could he do that to me? I am going crazy. And I know it looks like a normal envelope with just a letter.. but it's not. It has stuff inside it :) a few little items... and.. I CANT WAIT! (I just noticed that the envelope matches my bedspread lol) 

Countdown till anniversary: 9 days

My Boyfriend is a Missionary

Guess what I got today????????? :D
(excuse the lack of makeup) 
Yep. That's TWO! These are two of the letters that got lost during my letter fast last month. They finally showed up! Which means his memory card showed up! I could not have been happier :) And his letters are getting even more amazing every single week :) I know that his mission has strengthened our relationship beyond words :) It's the most amazing thing.
After reading the letters and watching the videos I just sat there and thought about him.

Do you remember when you little, and how you'd honk at the missionaries and wave hi? Or how your family would have them over for dinner and you thought they were so old? Well, I was thinking about this. It's crazy to think that MY boyfriend is one of them now. I think it's amazing :)
He's a missionary! :) 

Love him :)

Jet Lag - Simple Plan

I love songs that fit perfectly to MG's :) 
What time is it where you are? 

I miss you more than anything 
Back at home you feel so far 
Waitin for the phone to ring 
It’s gettin lonely livin upside down 
I don’t even wanna be in this town 
Tryin to figure out the time zones makin me crazy 

You say good morning 
When it’s midnight 
Going out of my head 
Alone in this bed 
I wake up to your sunset 
It’s drivin me mad 
I miss you so bad 
and my heart heart heart is so jetlagged 

What time is it where you are? 
5 more days and i’ll be home 
I keep your picture in my car 
I hate the thought of you alone 
I’ve been keepin busy all time 
Just to try to keep you off my mind 
Tryin to figure out the time zones makin me crazy 
I miss you so bad 
I wanna share your horizon 
and see the same sunrising 
Turn the hour hand back to when you were holding me.

It All Works Out

"It isn't as bad as you sometimes think it is. It all works out. Don't worry. I say that to myself every morning. It all works out in the end. Put your trust in God, and move forward with faith and confidence in the future. The Lord will not forsake us. He will not forsake us. If we will put our trust in Him, if we will pray to Him, if we will live worthy of His blessings, He will hear our prayers."
  - Gordon B. Hinckley 
He was and always will be, my favorite prophet :)

Hawaii Movies = Good Mood

This past week I have been obsessing over these movies:
 Blue Hawaii
50 First Dates
and Soul Surfer.
I don't know why, but I've gone crazy for anything that has Hawaii in it. Maybe it's because summer is finally here :) maybe it's because I'm going to be applying for BYU-Hawaii pretty soon. Who knows. All I know is that I'm obsessed :)
They are such feel good movies! I recommend all of them to you. Especially Blue Hawaii for any of you MG's :) And Soul Surfer is really inspirational and also is a good one for MG's :) The main theme in the movie is "I can do all things through him who strengthens me" :)

Let's just say - these movies explain why I've been in such a good mood :) That, and I got a letter today. No biggie :) jk, BIGGIE! I'm in love :) nuff said. Now go watch these movies. And enjoy summer!!!!!!!! :D

Surprise! :)

Today I got back from the MG road trip (stories and pictures to come later) and the first  thing I did was check my email. To my utter surprise, I had an email from my new friend Jenó in Hungary. He sent me these two pictures of Preston! :)
It made my day :) Especially since it's a holiday in Hungary tomorrow so I won't get to hear from him this week. Isn't it crazy how the smallest things can make an MG so happy? :) Yep. That's me :) 
I just love my boy! And my new Hungarian friends :) 
P.s. We did baptisms on the MG road trip and guess where the names were from? Hungary :) I may have freaked out a little :)

Youtube & A Lot of Vlogging

As all you know, I blog a lot. I also record videos a lot. So if anyone is interested, you can check out my crazy life of waiting and randomness here:
It's mainly just vlogs about waiting, Preston, packages, letters and stuff that I do while he's gone.
Enjoy with an open mind :)

Letter Fast is OVER!

For you girls in the MG group, you know I've been venting lately about my recent lack of receiving letters. Today marked 3 1/2 weeks without a letter and what do I wake up to?
My mom was waving a letter in front of my face! Pretty sure I was still half asleep but all I could say was, "Nooo wayyy!!!!!!!"
I can't even tell you how amazing it was :) And look at everything that was included! It was worth the wait :) This is what was included:
1. The letter :) 
2. The 13 Articles of Faith in Hungarian :) 
3. A bunch of missionary cards :) 
3. A coupon for a big mac in Hungary :) 
4. Yes, those are cookies :) They're called, "Jó Reggelt's" and they are so good :) 
5. Two Hungarian coins :) 
It's safe to say that I'm beyond happy, and the first day of June has started out wonderful :) 

♥ 16 more Fast Sundays ♥
