Oh what a week....

After this week, I have began questioning if I actually have a brain.  It's debatable.  I thought my car was stolen for a good 48 hours.... I even filed a report with the police department.  I cried a little, and happened to tell the whole world about it!  Because really, who's car gets stolen in Provo, Ut?  And out of all the cars in my parking garage, why in the world would they take mine?  But even before I lost the car, I was just having an off week.  I was grumpy, tired and very stressed.  I was desperately in need of some sleep, but with school and work, that just wasn't happening.  Then at 4:45, I walked down to my car to take it to work.  But it was MIA.  no where in the parking lot.  I thought it got towed, so I asked my roomie to take me to work.  But after calling the towing company, I discovered that the car was gone.  I mean, I'm not dumb I wouldn't just leave my car somewhere, or so I thought.  I decided that I had no other choice but to call the police.  When I got home, I met with an officer to fill out a stolen vehicle report.  I was convinced that Provo just wasn't as safe anymore.  I then went to school on Wednesday, depressed that my beloved little car was probably striped on the side of the road somewhere.  But then as Garrett drove me to work that night, it all starting coming together.  We started walking through my Monday, just to make sure that I wasn't forgetting anything.  Well, I was!!!!  I then remembered that I drove to my night class on Monday, and then was picked up by my roommate Katelin to go straight to Family Home Evening.  How this never entered my mind, we just don't know!!!!  
Garrett dropped me off and headed to BYU to see if the car was still there or if it had been towed.  I lucked out, and only had one little ticket on my window after 48 hours in the faculty parking lot.  And I'm pretty sure my family and friends haven't stopped laughing since! Everytime I grab my keys and head down the stairs, I just laugh.  Luckily I'm just a little challenged, and that my car was not the first to be stolen in Provo!  haha I guess I am succeeding in my goal in life to spread a little happiness!  
      With my car in hand, I went to meet my Practicum teacher at Timpanogas high school in Orem.  She is late 50s, and just a doll!  It only took me 5 minutes to discover what an incredible teacher she was.  The kids just seemed to love and respect her.  After being there for about an hour, she asked me when I was doing my student teaching.  I told her I would be doing it next semester, and she asked me to come be her student teacher!!!  I am so excited about this.  This is definitely an answer to lots of prayer.  I was nervous I would get stuck with a bad teacher, or would have to drive up to Salt Lake everyday.  But instead, I will be just 15 minutes away with an incredible teacher!  And plus, the Alpine school district, where I will be student teaching, is one of the only districts in Utah still hiring history teachers.  So this is the absolute ideal situation.  And to top everything off, I still get to marry Garrett Wonnacott!  Even though I'm a little bit of an airhead, okay fine a big airhead, things just seem to be working out.  Okay sorry about the novel!  Hope this makes you laugh.

I'm engaged!

So don't judge, I have been a little slow at writing this post!  Things have just been crazy, but I finally have a free minute to write a little something.  As of September 7th, Garrett and I are engaged!  I couldn't be happier.  I am so excited to be married to this boy for all of eternity.  And I love being engaged and calling him my fiance.  He is incredible, and I just feel so lucky.  We have been having quite the dilemma in deciding when to get married, but we just decided on April 28th.  It is the Thursday after we graduate, so we will have lots of changes happening in our lives at once!  Garrett and I started dating May of 09, so this engagement has been long coming!  But he's definitely been worth waiting for.
 When I first decided I might kind of like this boy.
I then I decided I might actually love him.
And we finally decided to seal the deal!
