Manti Pageant:

Last night Aaron and I went here: The Manti Temple to see the Manti Pageant
My ward was heading up for a ward activity and so we decided we would go too! We left about 6:45 and though it was a fun car ride, Manti is SO far away! We got there about 8:30 to find a crazy mad house of people and parking. Thankfully, due to my Arizona license plate, some nice family let us park in front of their yard. We walked up and found some great seats (that is the nice thing about being a couple and traveling in 2's, there are always 2 seats open somewhere!) We thought the pageant started at 9 but it started at 9:30 so we talked, debated about buying a funnel cake and enjoyed looking at each other...I mean the temple. Haha.
The Pageant finally started and it was so fun. We cuddled up in my blanket and settled in. It was really fun because neither of us had been before. With the beautiful temple and the starry sky, it made for a great night. We really enjoyed the pageant and hope to come back next year and maybe even camp out...we will see ;) Below are multiple attempts to take pictures of us in front of the Temple...with the temple in the background.
The Pageant lasted longer than we thought and so we didn't get to our car until about 11:30...and it was crazy! Aaron almost hit a few people, but overall it was fine. There is one road out of Manti, and with so many cars, it took a while. We got home close to 2am! We had a great time though and realized that we both get a little crazy after midnight as we had some major jamming out in the car and many random laughs and jokes. Here is to many more great date nights together as an engaged (and soon to be married) couple!

First Day of School:

Yes, that is right folks...Aaron and I started school today...TOGETHER! It's been the best thing EVER (and it's only been one day)! Who knew you could enjoy school so much!?!

 I helped Carlie get situated today on campus and then we met up with Aaron! I even walked him to his first class! I then met up again with Aaron after one of his classes. It was AMAZING! It is so fun to see your Fiance on campus! I think this is the first time, ever, that Aaron and I will have seen each other 3 times in ONE day! Can you believe that? We are even taking a Marriage Class together, which I am SO excited about! It will be wonderful! So, here is to a great Summer Term...that we BOTH hope goes by really FAST!

"Nothing but time..."

You know the saying, "We have nothing but time"? Well...for us it is the complete opposite. Let me explain:

-Aaron got home from his mission October 16th and Aubrie flew back up to Provo (for 6 months) on October 18th.

-Aubrie came home from BYU April 24th, Aaron left to come up to Provo May 21st.

-Aubrie came up to Provo June 16th, Aaron traveled down to AZ on June 17th.

Yes...this is the story of our relationship :)

Half Way:

Yesterday was the half way mark of Aaron and I being engaged. As of yesterday we have been engaged 2 months and 9 days.
After yesterday, we only have 2 months and 9 days until we are married. All I have to say is: that is a REALLY long time. Hopefully it goes by fast. Here is being halfway done! :)

I came back from Utah and the next day went with my family to register Aaron and I at Target and Bed Bath & Beyond! Woo Hoo! It was nice to have a support crew there with me to pick things out and to pick items OTHERS pay for. It was also fun to coordinate colors and patterns for our "house"...which is the most exciting part, that these items I picked out will be in a house that Aaron and I will be living in! Finally! It is such a fun thought! So here are some pictures of our adventures!

Got my gun and ready to go!
Sorry...Ethan isn't on the registry.

Love Explosion:

Lo-ve/Ex-plos-ion (n) (v)
a. when a bursting or over-whelming feeling of love for someone comes over you and you can't control yourself and you feel like "exploding" with love and happiness
Aaron: "Aubrie!! I love you!!! This LOVE EXPLOSION is out of control! Sheesh! :)
Aubrie: "Haha. Love You Too!"
Aaron: "No, No, No. You don't understand I LOVE you, Aub. This is NO laughing matter. I'm losing my mind over here! ;)"
Aaron: "Oh good, you finally got it!"
