Harry Potter Victory!

Thats right people (Dad,Mom,Jenea my only blog readers love you!) I have read all 7 Harry Potter books. It only took me 2 years to do it! After years of making fun of all the Harry fan's I finally broke down and started reading the first one and fell in love with Harry and the gang. I can now freely talk about everything no more telling David to shush! I know all the secrets! and now I can decide which book is my favorite and which ones I don't like. I have never been a big fan of #5 I don't know why for some reason it just bother's me but I love all the rest especially number 6 that is until number 7 I really like that one but that could be because I just read it...... Anyways I'm really looking forward to the Seventh Movie because it's the only movie I will have seen after reading the book. I saw most of the movies and then read the books and 6 came out while I was reading 5 :(

YES X 2!

Two years go today David asked me to be his wife! Crazy how fast the time goes it feels like he just asked me! I thought I would share the story again for those who haven't heard it but mostly for myself before my memory starts to alter it.

We first talked about getting married on the drive home from conference weekend two October's ago. I can't even remember how it came up I probably said something like well at my wedding I'll do this and then it turned into at our wedding we'll do this. I didn't think anything of this conversation I didn't say anything about to any of my friends. I guess I didn't think he was serious about marrying me. It wasn't until the next night when we were sitting on the couch just hanging out when he said "we'll probably get married in April." (or something like that) that it finally hit me that he WAS serious about marrying me!! I was in serious shock I think all I said was "ya" and not much else.

Then for the next 2 months we talked about it and looked at every ring under the sun!! I thought I knew exactly what I wanted. A simple solitaire diamond on a simple band. But David had me go look (smart man) and I soon found out there was more to choose from then just simple and simple. Then I had no idea what I wanted. We looked everywhere Rexburg, Idaho Falls, Seattle, Texas, Other peoples hands. Then Finally two months later I picked the first one I fell in love with. All of that and I chose the first one I saw. He was like are you sure this is the one? I said yes and he paid for it right then! The Whole thing! I was SUPER impressed! They took the ring to clean and dip it, and sauder the wedding band to the engagment ring I didn't want to wait for it and he didn't care. They said it was going to take two weeks to get the ring back which really sucked because we had been talking about and looking for rings for 2 months I didn't want to wait any longer. We walked out of the Jewelry store so Happy and Giddy!

So we we're suppose to get it on a Saturday it didn't come I was really sad I really just wanted to be engaged already. David told me for sure on Wedneday. So I waited.......

For the past week David had been talking about going to Craigo's ( a pizza place in Rexburg) so Tuesday night he was like can we please go to Craigo's!! I said of course and when he came to pick me up my friends were like are we not going out to eat? I had forgotten I was suppose to go with them and I was like o ya I'll go with you guys but David was behind me waving his hands saying no. I was oblivious to all of this somehow.

So we were on our way to Craigo's when David said he had to stop by the Tabernacle to turn off a paint pump. David works for the city and they had been working in the tabernacle all week and earlier that week he said something about going back to the tabernacle to turn something off or get something so I thought nothing of this strange paint pump turning off business. So we pull up to the tabernacle and it's so dark and scary I don't want to go with him but he makes me. We are walking up to the tabernacle and I'm still so oblivious it blows my mind looking back on this how oblivious I was.
He opens the door to the tabernacle and I see pictures hanging up in the foyer and I think O that's cute this church has pictures of there member's hanging up. I still have not caught on to what is happening. Then he turns on the light and I see that the pictures are of me! and it finally all starts coming together but before I can speak he's down on one knee and asking me to marry him! and I say YES!! I didn't cry which is surprising because I'm a big cryer! I was too happy and surprised to cry!

BOTH of my huge bouquet of flowers we're in the door handles

I'm really glad I was totally surprised. I always pictured myself being totally surprised when my husband asked me to marry him but wasn't sure if I actually would so it was awesome I had no idea what was going on until the second before he asked.

Freshly Engaged
Bride to Be! SO HAPPY!!
FLOWERS!! They were perfect I couldn't have asked for anything better!

Two Years Later and we are still celebrating one of the most exciting days of our life's we are really big celebrators don't be surprised to see YES X 3 on here next year!
Flowers for me! I am very much so Loved! We went to dinner at our favorite restaurant in Rexburg the Snake Bite! He reserved us a table by the window! How wonderful is that? So thoughtful! Dinner was delicious then we went to Great Harvest to get a cookie but it was some special night so we got it for Free!

That's right he took me Roller Skating my Favorite! Remember Roller Skating in Denver? This place was like a complete 180 from Denver's Skate Town. Completely G rated! There was a sign in the front before you went into the skating area that said No mini skirts no smoking no foul language no jumping no spaghetti straps! and much more! Plus they were playing the YMCA when we walked in it was Awesome! So much better then the nasty fest going on in Denver! For once in my life I was grateful to be in such a Mormon run town!
We had so much fun they did the Chicken dance, the Hokie Pokie and the Limbo! David is waiting in line above I did it a couple of times but had to sit out it got too low for me. I Love My Husband!
I'm so grateful to have found such a Wonderful, Fun, Hilarious, Handsome, Smart, Thoughtful, and Kind person to spend eternity with. And I'm grateful someone so amazing as him thinks I'm just as amazing that he would ask me to marry him!

P.S.- Paint pumps don't exist.

Christmas Tree OOOO Christmas Tree

I LOVE Christmas it couldn't have gotten here any faster! There are so many fun things to do! Decorate your tree, the house. Make Holiday treats. Go caroling out in the snow. Make Gingerbread house's. Make snowmen, and snow angels. Secret Santa. The list could go on and on. I do respect thanksgiving so we waited to put our tree up. We we're going to wait to do it on the actually 1st of December but it was on a Tuesday and I didn't want to wait anymore so we did it on Monday! and I love that it's up making our house a glow! Then put up the rest of what little decorations we had.

History of the Palmer Christmas Tree:
This time last year David was in Denver for his internship I had to stay behind and finish out the semester( most horrible two weeks of my life) so since he was gone and we we're moving we waited to put up decorations until Denver. We got there on a Sunday and Monday night we went and got the tree below and all the decorations. But then we had to leave it when we moved because there wasn't any room in our tiny car I was really sad because it was out first Christmas tree (its fake by the way I didn't keep a real one all year) so we left it in the house we we're living at for the past 5 months and thought we would never see it again. But in October David went to Denver for work and was able to go save our tree! and now here it is in our new home again!

My mom got me these and they are amazingly comfy!
Thank you David's mom for the addition to our Christmas decorations I love them!
Stockings that are weird colors and nutcracker man
Hanging up the star sorry it's blurry the little camera was having a hard time with the lighting

We finished off the night with Miracle on 34th Street

Thanks You

HAPPY THANKSGIVING! I love the Holiday season it's a lot of fun but poor thanksgiving is so over looked ya people do the turkey and the stuffing and the pies but at the same time they are putting up the Christmas lights.... LAME! I think each holiday should get the same amount of respect as the next! I feel sorry for Thanksgiving and hope it knows that I appreciate the holiday joy it brings me. With that said I can continue with this post. We went to Texas for Thanksgiving woo hoO!! I was very excited because my family is so far away and we hardly get to see them!

Another Fashion Series

For my Color Photo class we had to do a Series of that interested us so of course I chose fashion. I did more then one model this time Amanda and David. It was fun to shoot David but a little more difficult I didn't know how to pose him. I usually turn to VOGUE for inspiration but since its usually only full of girl models we really had to think. I've really been thinking about doing Fashion for my BFA Project (two years from now). I really love it and hopefully one day I will be working for VOGUE and I will be the inspiration. But anyways I was thinking I could do a fashion series every semester until I graduate maybe even twice a semester now that I've got this idea and then by the time my BFA comes I will have this huge body of work to show how far I've come and what I've learned. For now I think these pictures are awesome I had so much fun doing it. Thanks Amanda and David for being such beautiful models.
