Did I Not Tell You?!

 Guess what! We went to Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium when Bryan came to visit! ;p

We thought we had seen all that we could when mom and dad decided to see if the tiger was up and about, so we split up. Then we saw the "Budgie Buddies." Sounded interesting and we hadn't noticed it before, so we decided to go in. 

There were two sets of doors, I suppose to keep the birds inside, then there was another door to the bird enclosure. 

At first we just looked at the birds. Bryan tried taking some pictures, but the birds stayed where they were from a distance. Then I saw a little girl with a stick that had bird food glued to one end, and the birds came and landed on the stick and was eating! 

I was jealous... So I went and bought my own stick, and Bryan took pictures, it is a good thing I did my hair and wore a cute shirt! You never know when Bryan will take his iPhone out and start snapping pictures of you... 

That silly man that I love so much! ;p

11 Years Ago Today

From what I can remember about 9/11 is minimal, one because I was a young girl, and two because I was mostly consumed with the loss of my Grandmother. 

I don't recall when she passed, maybe the week earlier, I had come home from school, my parents had me and my twin brother in their room and they explained that she had died in her sleep. I was very confused because I had made a card for her. I didn't realize that the people in my life that I love will not always physically be here with me.

The funeral was the day that the towers fell. I remember it being a rainy day in Chico, CA. The drive felt long, I just sat in the back staring out the window. I don't remember many of my extended family members crying much at the funeral. I suppose they understood better about life and death than I did. 

I understood that I would see her again, but I wanted to keep seeing her then, I wanted to be able to keep visiting, and sleeping in her bed, and having Flap-Jack at the foot of the bed purring. I guess you could say that I was simply not ready to lose anyone.

In the picture is a box that my parents gave me with a photo of my grandmother, her dog Clemie, and her cat Flap-Jack. I don't recall if I had box before she died, or if it was after that it was given to me, but I have it. There is not much in it. I have some things that remind me of her, but there is not much. 

The number one thing that reminds me of her are quilts. I suppose that is my number one reason for trying to make so many. Antiques and other old unique things, like trinkets and furniture remind me of her. I find that I am the type of person who does not tend to speak of certain things out loud, usually because I tend to cry, but crying can be a good thing to do, maybe not as much as smiling. 

I am sorry for the lives lost that day, but let us keep smiling. :)

Big Smiles

I made some changes, pretty neat! Can you name a few?
I know... I'm going a little crazy, missing my Bryan... I love you!
Three months, one week... give or take a few hours, minutes, and seconds...
;p Kisses! ♥

First Glance...

LOOK! What do you see.....? Here, let me tell you!
It says Rebecca Andrea Dean Nelson! Ahahaha! Bryan saw this and it looked like my name said Nelson at the end. But it turns out that is my new sister's name. :)
But it looks good, yeah? I have a friend who is engaged and she already changed her last name on Facebook... Shall I do the same thing? 
I feel that it would be SUPER AWESOME to change it now, but there is a sort of thrill to changing it after it is official. I don't know... What say you? Should I go ahead and change it because it would be AMAZING? Or should I wait? Hmm, well, ultimately it is up to me, no matter how many say one or the other, but I want to see who says what and why. 
Please comment! I am curious to know! Don't wait! Start thinking! Then start writing! ;p 
You know you want to! 
Bryan, what say you?
I Love You! Kisses! ♥

Seattle Temple

 I gotta say, this picture to the left was the strangest picture that my parents took of us... I didn't want to be taking a photo with statues... But mom and dad insisted that they take the picture to see what it would look like...? Um.. It's strange.. Now, if those statues were living people, and people that we know and love, then I think the picture would have a different feel.
But anyhow! Mom and dad took us to the Seattle Temple to take some pictures, and of course, Bryan and I are silly people, what can I say, when we are together, the "crazy" just gets crazier! ;p It is fun nonetheless.
I love you Bryan! ;p Kisses ♥

More Yellowstone

Look what I found! more pictures from Yellowstone! This time they are pictures of me and Bryan! Theses are pictures that my daddy took with his digital camera. It seems as though that all the pictures that I am in either show me with a funny face, my eyes closed, and both a funny face with eyes closed. Crazy, I know, I suppose I am not meant to be on a certain side of the camera... Hahaha. But I will want to be on any side of the camera as long as my Bryan is there too. ;p
It is only a shame that there are usually people in the pictures with us.
Did I tell you that Bryan got me a remote for the camera? Genius right? Gotta love him and all he does for me. But now that I think about it, it would be hard to be carrying around a tripod around when going on day trips. I mean, it is one thing to decide to take pictures together, but in a crowded place like National Parks would be a little hectic, at least to me, frustration is not very fun for me. But I suppose I will have Bryan to carry everything for me. ;p Usually when I get frustrated I let Bryan carry the camera and take pictures. So far it has worked out for us. I SUPER LOVE YOU LOTS BRYAN! ;p
Well, I don't know what we are standing near in the picture, usually when I take a photo I try to get a picture of the sign on the SD card too.
All you really need to know is that we are at Yellowstone and this is us, Bryan and Beck! ;p But I am sure you were completely aware of this by now.

Now if you can recall the other post about Yellowstone I did mention that there were a lot of people crowding around us when it got closer to the time for Ol' Faithful to erupt. I also mentioned that there was a man who was awfully close by, so close he could hug us and take our photos... Well here is the picture! The man to the left in black! Crazy right? 
Ohh Gee... Here is a photo of me making a funny face with my eyes closed! WHAT? I hope that the photographer that we have at the wedding will retake photos when I don't purposefully make funny faces, because let's face it, Bryan and I are bound to make some funny faces together. ;p 

Here is just another picture. My eyes are closed yet again. But I must tell you that half the time we were facing the sun.
I sure hope that the wedding day will be overcast, hopefully not raining... but hopefully no sun blazing us blind. ;p
I most likely wont be getting the exact weather that I would want, but I sure will be getting the exact man that I want. ;p
I wish for more pictures of me and Bryan, and I don't wish to be taking the pictures. I just want to relax! Hahaha. Relaxing sounds really nice right about now. I just wish that I could be relaxing with Bryan close by, not all the way in Idaho. But he will be starting the semester soon. Hopefully it wont be too crazy with working and classes and all that jazz..
Hmm, I don't know what else to say, except that I love you Bryan! ;p
Kisses! ♥

Alright ya'll, I have "Pinterest" on my iPod Touch, and some days I just cannot stop "liking" so many pins of others! Today I noticed that I had over 550 likes! I decided to attempt "pinning" them into the appropriate "boards" and such. As you will notice, in the picture, I have got my "likes" down to 411. I say that is a wonderful success! I don't really think that I organized them too well, but I am satisfied with it, which is crazy, because I can go a little insane if things are not quite the way that I want them to be... But I understand that I can't always have everything my way. So this is me calming down. Hahaha. 
The other thing is... I CAN"T WAIT TO CHANGE MY NAME! As you can observe, in the picture, my last name is currently "Dean," but I simply cannot wait until the day that my many profiles will say "Nelson!" 
Ohh Gee! You cannot know how crazy I am for Bryan Nelson! Today I was listening to some music, and let it be known that Michael Buble was singing to my dancing bones and I realized that I also cannot wait to dance once again with my Bryan! AHH! 
Deep breathing is in store for me these next three months and one week, give or take a few days, hours, minutes, and seconds. ;p
Well, I suppose my ranting is done for the day. I hope you enjoyed. Hahaha. ;p

My Man

 These are some pictures that my sister took of me and Bryan. I'm not used to being on the other side of the camera, it is a little awkward to me. I like to be behind the camera, but these pictures are very nice. So THANK YOU Melissa! I love you!
Well, we took pictures in the Gardens on campus at BYU-Idaho, there we ran into one of Bryan's sisters, crazy right? It was fun.
Here we are peeking over the edge of something, I don't recall what it was exactly.

We are both wearing skinny jeans, yeah, Bryan has a pair of skinny jeans, but his look like regular jeans. ;p
Above we have a silly picture to the left, and to the right we have a cool train picture, only I wish that my jeans didn't blend with the train so much, there was editing to be done...

Here Melissa captured the flowers with me and Bryan in the background. I think it turned out nicely. There are so many things I would have loved to do, but I was getting exhausted, and I wanted so badly to be behind the camera. Hahaha. I suppose that means that I feel the need to be in control, which might be a flaw about me, but hopefully its not a huge problem when I marry my Bryan. ;p
I love that you read my blog! ;p
Kisses!  ♥
