Let's Eat Cake, Just Because We Can!

Just a quick little side note:
On Sunday Jonathan and I baked a cake, in honor of our "graduation" from our singles ward. I told him we have a reason to celebrate, so why not bake a cake...right? It was a yellow cake, with chocolate frosting. We even put sprinkles and candles on it! We sung the happy graduation song, blew out the candles and then had a piece of our yummy cake. We even added in a little "frosting fight" Let me tell you; a little frosting fun makes for some very sweet kisses and hugs ;-) So much Fun!!!

You want to know one more reason why I love my man? Jonathan will take my crazy fun ideas and run with them, with me. We have so many good times and laughs together. It's a great LIFE!! I love my Baby-J!!!!

Bridal Shower #2

On Saturday May 2, I had another Bridal Shower at Sister Flossie Redford's Home. She knows Grandma well. She has given 2 of my Aunts their bridal showers; so she wanted to give me one as well. Flossie and her husband are SO SWEET and KIND! Their yard is BEAUTIFUL TOO! You can tell she LOVES TO GARDEN. Her backyard is like PERFECT!

For this shower, a lot of Grandma Ostler's friends came to show their love and support to Jonathan and myself. I have learned that a lot of the people invited to every wedding, are friends of the bride and groom's parents. They are all so happy for us!

Even though these are some of the worst pictures of me, they are all I had from this shower. You can't really tell, but it was a great little salad bar luncheon. we got some wonderful gifts too! Thanks to everyone for their kindness & generosity! It means a lot to me and Jonathan.
Sisters: Gail Bley, Barbra Kline, and Francine Capuro.

Sisters: AnneMarrie Effert, Emalina Holmes, & Darla Ferguson
Sisters: Beverly Herron, Catherine Harrison, Beverly Arthur, & Lu McGreahm

What's In A Name?

Well Dancing Through Life Readers,

as you all well know, Jonathan and I have just under 2 weeks until we are going to be sealed as man and wife; for Time And All Eternity!!!! Yes, I said under 2 weeks. Threaten Days to be exact!!! Wow I can't even believe I just said that!

I am so looking forward to starting our new life together as ONE! I think that as a girl, getting married brings an extra perk because I get to start off this portion of my life as someone new! Having the chance to change my last name, is something I have looked forward to my whole life. It's almost like I have the ability to start my life all over with a clean slate. I hate Emotional baggage!

Just think, soon I will move to a new town with my Hubby; where not many people will know me as anyone other than Mrs. or Sister Robbins :-D Jonathan and I both have the opportunity to leave our past behind and start afresh as a married couple! How cool is that!?? I can't wait!!!!!

On May 11th, We will be moving our belongings into our newly renovated apartment. SO FUN. Today is our last day in the Mar Vista Singles Ward. Next week is MOTHERS day and we want to be with our Moms. The week after, we will be on our Honeymoon! By the way, Thanks to everyone for all the great advice! :) We will definitely try to implement it.

This is someone who is way more than ready to leave her "old life" behind. BAH BYE SINGLE LIFE!
