And So We Begin

So excited that I finally get to start a "family blog"!  I know we aren't married quite yet (only 35 days until we are...but who's counting?!), but I just wanted to start posting because our lives are already folding into one, between wedding plans and post-wedding plans, we are eagerly anticipating our lives together!

This is us!  We have dated over a year now, and we will officially tie-the-knot on May 13th (Friday the 13th!).  Here's a bit about us:
Born in Pasadena, CA but moved to Mesa when I was 6 months old, and lived there ever since.  So I feel like a native!  I am the oldest of 5 kids.  I am just finishing up my Bachelor's degree at ASU in therapeutic recreation.  I love doing crafty things and eating (especially chocolate)! 
Born and raised in Willcox, AZ.  Youngest of 8 kids.  Moved to Mesa when he graduated high school to start going to ASU.  Attended ASU for one semester and then served a mission in Calgary, AB Canada (where he froze his buns off!).  Then returned back to Mesa and is graduating in May (the day we get married) in Economics.  Brett loves watching movies, eating, and tickling me.   
We will be renting a small 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom house near the Mesa Temple, and have put some elbow grease into it already.  We spent a huge chunk of our Spring Break painting it:
I learned that I do not have a steady hand, and that closets are my thing.  Large areas of a wall are okay, but that I am to stay away from door jams and window sills, and when in doubt: tape off! 
I have already frequented Goodwill on the 50% off Saturdays in search for treasures to refinish or fix for our new little home.  
Stay tuned for more updates!
