Brent and Allison's Wedding

So many weddings! Isn't it great?! :) Three weeks ago, my brother Brent got married in Portland! I was also able to go through the temple (yay!), and my whole family was there (well, minus a couple of in-laws and nieces and nephews...we missed you guys a lot!) Even Aunt MaryLou and Grandma Lacey got to come! It was absolutely incredible!!

Brent watched football while he got ready for his big day! :)

Aren't Brent and Allison adorable? :)And that Brent must be so funny...because Natalie is laughing so hard (I don't know why, but this picture entertains me every time I see it!) :)Cute KristyI love my family!!!Grandma was a trooper!Isn't this picture cute? My dad is so handsome :)

Katie and Todd's Wedding

So this was clear back on October 10th, but I've never gotten around to blogging about it! I drove out to Denver for my friend Katie's wedding. This was my first time visiting Denver, and I loved it!! After growing up with Denver stations on our TV (weird, I parents hated the local stations) I had always wanted to go to Colorado! I drove down with my friends Ryan and Katie George (so many Katies, I know...try living with both of them the same time. We usually just called them by their last names).

In front of the Denver Temple with Katie George.
We met up with Becca and Crystal...two other bridesmaids (I stole a couple of these pictures from Ryan and Katie's blog...thanks guys :) )

This is just a good ol' cheesy shot of me...I was trying to show off my fretty flowers :)Katie's (the bride one) brother Brent is on a mission in Prague, so they got a life-size cut out made of him. :) You better believe everyone had fun with it! Happy Birthday, Elder Reichman! :)

At the reception center (which was amazing, by the way...I want to marry someone from Denver just so I can have my reception there!!) there was an old red telephone booth. We had fun taking pictures in there (even after we found that there were a billion sleeping hornets in there!)

Anyway, good times in Denver! Congrats, Katie and Todd!

I'm going home!

I got really sick of seeing that "I Voted Today" picture when I got onto my blog, so I thought I'd write a quick note to #1 get rid of that picture and #2 tell everyone how excited I am to go home to Montana this weekend for Brent and Allison's wedding reception! (I still need to make an entry about the wedding...and Katie's wedding from last month...and everything else I've been doing!) So here are a few lovely pictures that represent some fun moments of past visits to the motherland!

Playing in the "mud" with Moe and Natalie
"Cow tipping" with my old roommate Kristen...get it?
And I'm a cow...

I voted!

Yay for voting! I stood in line for about 15 was amazing! And in case you were worried...the lines at my school definitely cleared after about an hour. Kristy, perhaps next time they will roll out the red carpet for me. :)

Can teachers get reserved parking, please?

I don't know if any of you have ever had your work place be a polling location for a popular presidential election, so let me tell you a bit about it....
First of all, there's nowhere to park! Even when you show up an hour and a half before school starts, you get to drive around for 10 minutes until a big truck pulls out and lets you take his spot.
Second, you can't even get to your classroom because there are a couple hundred people blocking the hallway. When you try to weave your way through, you get dirty looks because they think you are trying to cut or something.
Third, the students use #2 as a great excuse for being late to class..."But the halls are blocked! I couldn't run to class like I usually do!"

But on the other side of things, it's very exciting! It makes me happy that so many people get out and express their right to vote...even if they do have to stand in line for a few hours....which I am looking forward to doing tonight on my way home! :)
