We had so much fun at dinner with Chelsea and Jeremy. It's so fun to get out and have a fun night with them. We decided every couple of months we will try a new fun place that we normally wouldn't go to...no special occasion needed, just a fun night to get out and enjoy some quality time with our friends :) Next we might try La Caille!
Thanks Jeremy and Chelsea for truly entertaining us and inviting us for night out on the town! We had a blast and look forward to our next outing with you guys!

Today is much better...I think (He wouldn't tell me even if it was worse) The doctor he went and saw a couple of months ago suspected that John has Chronic Kidney Stones, but we are going to have to help him find something to take care of this issue. I feel so bad for him when they come! Wish us luck in our search for a cure to these tiny horrible things!!!

This Picture is priceless!
On Saturday, July 19th, 2008 I attended the Bridal Extravaganza Show at La Caille in hopes to get some great ideas for a wedding. Instead of just walking away with a couple of brochures and coupons, I won the $100,000 DREAM WEDDING GIVEAWAY! What a dream come true this really is to write about my experience that day. There really aren’t words to explain, but i’ll try my best.
John and I have been together for eight years on September 3rd. We met while attending the same Junior High and It truly was love at first site. We continued dating all through out High School. There was no doubt in our minds that we wanted to spend forever together, but before we could get married we both knew that it was VERY important for John to serve a LDS mission. He reported to the Missionary Training center on June 28, 2006 and returned home just three weeks ago on July 3rd, 2008. We both knew the minute we saw each other at the airport that we would finally be together forever. Of course most people would say…how will you get married? How will you afford it? And these were questions that we both asked ourselves. The week before I went to the Bridal show at La Caille, John joked around with me and said “You know if you win the $100,000 Dream Wedding Giveaway, then that means that we don’t have to wait to get married.” I laughed and told him he was crazy and said that there was no way out of all those people I would win the grand prize. Well I was wrong apparently (but we don’t have to tell him that ) As I sat there waiting for them to announce the winner, I was surprisingly calm because in my head i didn’t think I even had a chance. When they said my name, I flew off my seat and couldn’t believe what I had won. I didn’t just win a $100,000 Dream Wedding Giveaway, I also am going to be able to Marry my best friend. Even though this wedding is going to be something out of fairytale, my life has always been a fairytale because John has been a part of it. This is a dream come true and I am so grateful for this opportunity and for this wonderful day that I get to share with John. It’s an amazing ending to a VERY exciting Beginning.
We will forever be grateful for the many things we were blessed with from this giveaway. I am so glad we got to work with such great vendors and build everlasting relationships with them. Our wedding day was truly a fairytale and something we will remember forever.

While we were gone we sure missed Charlie. He stayed at Grandma and Grandpa Ashcroft's house and lets just say, he had way too much fun! He went on hikes in the mountains, played in the sprinklers, followed Benson around, and played ALL day in the back yard. The only thing he didn't do was take naps. So, you can imagine when we got him back how tired he was. On the way home, he fell right to sleep and we didn't hear a peep from him the rest of the day and all night. Thanks grandma and grandpa for watching Charlie. He sure had fun and misses you guys already :)
