3 Days until He Meets the Family...

So, Friday night Jesse, Jason and I leave for Utah! Jesse is coming up with the main purpose of meeting my family. That's kind of a nerve-wracking thought. Originally, I thought he would only meet mom, dad and the siblings. However, by the looks of it, he may end up meeting A LOT more than that. If he isn't nervous about meeting any of my family...then..well, I don't know. I know I was a bit nervous when I met HIS grandparents. His parents were kind of natural since I go over to his house. But the fact that he has to go out of his way to meet them...yeah. It's sort of exciting. I've never had a special "meet the parents" thing before. I guess it's sort of a big deal? I don't know. I hope everyone thinks he is great, because he really really is! Maybe everyone will be supportive of me becoming a Chapman? hmmm..not that that really matters RIGHT now...but in a couple years. Plus, if my family likes him and supports it, it makes it all the easier to go back to it after the mission :)

You know the tall blonde boy in the picture with me at the top of this blog? Well, I'm in love with this boy. He's my best friend. And while I'm excited for us to go on missions and have amazing experiences, I'm looking forward to seeing him again after we get back. We have one amazing friendship and I hope that friendship lasts an extremely long time! That's basically all I wanted to say, so now everyone knows, if you didn't already know, that I'm head over heels for a boy, and his name is Jesse. :D

On September 23, 2010 I can.....

TURN IN MY MISSION PAPERS. From today, that's 79 days. I'm excited. If you couldn't tell. I talked to my branch president today and I'll have forms from him on Sunday along with more info. It's not often that a branch president of a singles branch sends people on missions... Anyway, I'm excited. I'm finally taking the first step into my dream! It's gonna come fast. I've got to decided what my departure date will be, but I've got plenty of time to figure that out. Between July 26 and August 16th I will have: Top wisdom teeth removed, general teeth cleaning, and 4 cavities filled (2 appointments). The next medical thing there is the physical. Oh joy.. haha. Ok, well that's my news! Isn't it AMAZING? :D

Missions :)

I'm excited and I really want to have my call already. My friend Emily Beu just got her mission call to the Mesa Arizona Temple Visitors Spanish Speaking mission! That's 45 mins away from me! Of course she still has to go to the MTC...Maybe she'll be here before I leave to go home! That would make me happy :)She reports in September! Wow, as I see other people get their calls and get closer to submitting their papers it's getting me even more excited!

I wonder where I will go! It's exciting to think about :D I had a dentist appt yesterday so that I could get xrays taken so that I can go get my other 2 wisdom teeth out! I will schedule an appointment..probably Tuesday. I think most businesses will be closed Monday. I'm going to be scheduling the extraction for the last week of July. I'm also going to try to talk to President Anderson (my branch president) about mission prep stuff. Just to figure out what all I need to start doing and maybe even start on paperwork. I still feel like my mission is a goal I want to do eventually, but it's still forever away! Maybe it will feel more real once I start filling out papers and making preparations. Who knows. I think the only other thing after the removal of my wisdom teeth is the physical (so NOT looking forward to that). Then it's making sure I have all the financial covered...speaking of which...

I'M SUPER CLOSE TO HAVING MY SCHOOL LOANS PAID OFF!!! :D I have enough in the bank to pay them off but...I have a trip to Utah coming up, a dentist cleaning, then cavities to get filled, plus the removal of my wisdom teeth coming up, plus 2 paychecks of tithing, so I want to make sure I have enough money in the bank to cover it all... but I just made a big payment on it and now have $251.45! It's such a relief! After it's all paid off everything is going to saving!! (With some taken out for some spending) I need to relook at where I will be financially and create a budget so that I know where I will be at the end of the year! I'm excited! I'm pretty sure the next 6 months will go by fast and the next thing I know I will be in the MTC! :D
