a years worth of footsies & hand holdin!

10.22.2010 marks the first official date of mr. barlow and i.
a whole year has gone by!

did you know he flew down from rexburg just to take me on a date?
keeper, huh?!

our first date was a memorable one where we went to the glendale center theater and held hands.
oh and also watched a play.
then we went to dinner at BJ's.
that night we discovered it was both one of our favs.
pretty sure we have eaten there close to 53 times in the past year!

it really was a grand first date.
well that whole weekend was pretty much a date and getting better aquatinted.
it was lovely and full of giggles.

the next night the G7 had a "Live Clue" game!
i really just wanted to include some photos from that weekend and this is what i got!

cat = award for best photo bomb.

maybe one day mr. barlow will grow a real stache?

and i really am going to miss the G7.
and all the costume parties!

next week ill have on a nice white dress instead of this 80's lace mermaid thing.
[still in my closet if anyone is looking for something fancy to wear!]


i am so excited for the future but i sure do love reminiscing about last year when mr. barlow first waltzed into my life.

recommendations are welcome.
and thank you in advance.

now you are asking WHY?

here you go ..

mr. barlows company opened a position in their main office in provo that would require NO traveling.
let me repeat NO traveling!

so we said a quick prayer and decided jacob should at least submit his resume.
the next week he got a call and they offered him the position.

we spent the next eve discussing the pros and cons of each.
we said a real long prayer and felt like utah was the place to be!

major pros = 
 my soon to be husband can come home every eve instead of spending his time driving!
grad school sooner for the both of us!
lots of family/friends everywhere!

we are happy and feel good!
oh and we'll be up there around december 1st ish.

next item of news is i stepped up in the smart category with the help of my mr. barlow!
i am now the proud owner of a smart phone.
and boy do i feel smart!

this is my new friend to be exact and i love it!
thank you mr. barlow for us getting a phone plan together.
and well the getting married part too!

that is all the newest news for now.
besides our wedding taking place in 2 weeks!

and on a complete side note someone sent me this quote and i really like.

I choose...
to live by choice and not by chance;
to make changes, not excuses;
to be motivated, not manipulated;
to be useful, not used;
to excel, not compete.
I choose self-esteem, not self-pity.
I choose to listen to my inner voice, not the random opinion of others.
