I Am Back!

I am pretty embarrassed at how long it has been since I have posted on our blog. I will give a quick recap of 2011 so I can get all of you up to date.

This past December I graduated with my bachelors in dental hygiene! It was such a great feeling to have one of my major life goals accomplished. Dental hygiene school was one of the largest trials I have had. I am grateful for my parents for supporting me throughout all of my schooling and believing in me to push myself. I am also very thankful for my husband who listened to all of the complaining and for always being there to listen to all of the dental hygiene school drama. I am really excited because I should have my license from the state within the next month! Hooray! I can’t wait to start making the big bucks! As nice and relaxing it has been to be out of school…I am getting a little stir crazy at home by myself.

Another HUGE highlight of my 2010 year is marrying the love of my life Daniel! We were married on April 19th 2011. I am so lucky to marry the man of my dreams. We have been enjoying every day together… Daniel is so patient and kind to me! I don’t know anyone who can make me laugh harder than he does. Needless to say these have been the best nine months of my entire life. I would like to do a whole post on the wedding so look forward to all the details and pictures.

We also have been on many vacations and weekend getaways together including Christmas in Chicago, road trip to Seattle (that drive is very long), birthday weekend in Park City (our birthdays are 3 days apart…mine June 15th… his June 12th) and our honeymoon in the sunny Bahamas! My mom and sisters and I were able to go to Vegas twice this year... one because my best friend Brandy Langford got married and another with some of our old family friends from Ohio. I love traveling and we are looking forward to many more trips this year!

Although I have been slacking on our blog, I still have loved reading about what all of my family and friends have been up to! I promise I will do better at updating everyone about our lives and adventures! Since I am finished with school, I decided my new goal would be becoming a better blogger. Get excited for more posts to come!! XOXOX

54 DAYS!

Yes that is right!!! Only 54 more days until Daniel and I are married! Everything is in the works and we took our bridals/groomals this past weekend and despite the rain, we had so much fun! We also took our engagements about a month ago and you can see a sneak peak on http://blog.ravenbergphotography.com/ We still have quite a bit to do, (mostly just the cake & invitations), but just trying to take it one day at a time.

But.... Some great news Daniel just surprised me with is where we are going on our honeymoon!--- THE BAHAMAS! I am so excited! He treats me so well and I shouldn't have been so shocked he would go all out for our honeymoon. My mom also got me a cute new bikini for one of my showers-- CAN'T WAIT TO GET ME SOME SUNSHINE!!

Daniel and I finally found our apartment and it is really cute! We get the keys March 1st!! Wow time is flying! When we get things all settled, I will post pics! Hope everyone is doing well!

Wow so much has happened since I have last blogged! I honestly don't know where to begin! I guess a good list of updates will come in the most handy to help organize my thoughts...
1. I started Dental Hygiene School in April... I can't believe I almost have my second semester finished! I can actually see a light at the end of the tunnel now! I will have my bachelors in December 2011:) woot woot! I spend about 8 hours a day at school and I have to drive down from South Jordan to Orem every day! It is worth it tho because I live by DANIEL:) and that leads to...

2. HE is HOME!!!! Daniel is home and he returned on August 19, 2010!! After two long years of waiting I finally have him back! We went to California the week Things are even better than before and I honestly have never been so happy! I couldn't ask for a better fiancé!

3. Yes that is right! I just said fiancé!!!! He proposed in September and we are getting married on April 19, 2011. BAH! I can hardly believe that I am engaged! He proposed with both of our families there with us and made the night absolutely perfect in every way! I can't wait to be married to him and I know he will be an AMAZING husband.

Wow so much has happened since my last post so here is a quick list of everything that has gone on!

1. First and foremost Daniel received his tentative flight schedule! AUGUST 19 at 6:39 PM! I can't believe it!

2. I finished up my last semester at BYU and moved home!

3. I started Dental Hygiene School and I love it so much! It has kept me quite occupied and studying is about all that I do nowadays. I go to school 8-5 Monday through Thursday.

4. I was transfered to work in the South Towne Mall JCPenneys! You can find me here on Fridays and Saturdays:)

5. We went to Hawaii-- THE BIG ISLAND! We went between semesters and it was so much fun to have a relaxing break before starting Dental Hygiene.

6. Daniel was transfered to the Lake District and absolutely loves it! He is doing great and has a few baptisms coming up here pretty soon! I am so proud of him for finishing out his mission strong and I am so thankful to have such a sweet boyfriend!

So that is my recent life in a nutshell... I hope everyone is doing great and I will try to be better about posting on the blog! Have a great weekend!

PS Here are a few pics from Hawaii! (the Hash family, pic for Daniel, and the Hash sisters) ENJOY!

Best Week Ever!

I finally have the tape, over 700 pictures,8 videos of Daniel and two letters. It is always so good to hear from Daniel and every time I do my day turns for the better! He is doing great and had two baptisms yesterday. Things for me have been really busy and school is getting stressful right before finals. ug! Dental hygiene school will be starting soon and I cannot wait! It will be so good to start this new chapter of my life. I wanted to post some of my pics that Daniel sent and also some pics of what I have been doing... ENJOY:)

Daniel made this cake for valentines day... haha good job babe:)

This is Daniel at the Preston Temple. It is Beautiful!

This is at Cortney's dance performance! It was so fun to see her perform she is an amazing dancer. We went to the pizza factory after to celebrate! way to go Cortney!

And this is why I LOVE HIM!

I got new pics from Daniel this week! YAY! Pictures are my very favorite and it always makes my day better when I get pics of him! Daniel is in Accrington and is doing really good. He said that I should get a tape this next week so I will let you all know when I get one. p.s. my favorite picture is the one at the bus stop... I am such a lucky girl!

Another good thing about this past week is one of Daniel's best friends (Brett Mcmullin) came home from his mission in Argentina. I can't believe people are starting to come home already! Only 167 days left!

Where to Begin?

Wow... I have wanted to make a blog for so long and now that I have finally made one I am not sure where to begin. I guess the main reason I want to blog is to keep everyone updated on me and Daniel. We are stronger than ever and he currently has six months left on his mission. Woot Woot! Daniel is in the Manchester England Mission and is serving in Blackburn. I am living in Provo, currently at BYU, but I was accepted into UCDH (Dental Hygiene School) over Christmas break. I will start there on May 3! I am really excited and look forward to moving more into my career path. Daniel said that his release date should be August 17, which is great because I will have the month of August off from school. I am so proud of Daniel and he has been such a great missionary. I hope these next few months go by quickly!

Me and Daniel write each other every week and I wanted to include some pics of his Valentines day package that he sent me! He treats me so well:) bah i love him:)

Well that is just a little bit of information about what is going on in our lives and I am looking forward to blogging more.
