Hello my wonderful family and friends. Being that I am about to embark on a new and exciting chapter to my life, I am going to start a new blog for my new little family (Paul and I). I want everyone who wants to read it and follow us to have access but I am going to make it private. If you want to follow it please send me your email address and I will add you. I'll probaly start it in the next couple weeks or so.
LOVE YOU ALL!!!

I'm not sure why, but for some reason some of the words in my blog posts keep getting linked- meaning they are linking to websites. SOOO... if you see this please don't click on them, a couple times they have pulled up NAUGHTY sites. Grrr... I keep deleting them, so if you saw one... SORRY. I don't know how to fix it. I promise I'm a good girl. GOOD AND PURE!!!!

Well, I went to Portland for the first time this past weekend. It was amazing. Here are some pictures from the trip. My battery died so I didn't get many pictures. Some of these I stole from Kerry (Thanks Kerry!!!)
Okay... So first I got to meet his Grandma and Grandpa Marshall. Fun people. I loved them. I was quizzed on some history, part I passed, part of which I failed. Haha... I think they still liked me though. They were a lot of fun to talk to, and I loved them instantly!!! Then we spent all day with Paul's AMAZING parents Kuhn and Kerry on Saturday. It was a beautiful day, warm, sunny... just wonderful weather. We spent the day on the Oregon Coast, which I fell in love with. We ate breakfast at this sweet lodge called Camp 18. Which is where this first picture is at. Awww... Cute picture, right? I love this picture of us. The lodge is awesome, it's log and very rustic. I felt right at home. Kerry tried to get us to sit on this lumberjack's lap... Paul was shy about it, but I wasn't :). Here I am on his lap.

|Here are some pictures off of a park we stopped at (can't remember the name)|
|Kuhn and Kerry... how cute are they? Awww...|
|While we were walking on the beach we came to this written in the sand. We love you Kerry!!!!|
|More Kite flying!!! Thanks Kuhn!!!|
I had so much fun on this trip. Sunday was no different... we ate a wonderul breakfast with his parents and then got ready for church. We went to his ward and I met his Bishop. That was such a good experience. The spirit was pretty strong in there talking to him. He is an amazing man, and he loves Paul so much... EASY TO DO! Then we went to the Portland temple. It was beautiful. I've never been there. I loved walking around the grounds with him. He was so excited to show it to me. I'm just excited to go there with him (wink wink). Then we went back to his parents to have dinner with them. We all pitched in and made a yummy dinner that we ate on the patio, again... beautiful sunny weather. Then that night we roasted marshmallow's and made smore's, EXCEPT... we didn't have graham crackers so Kerry and Paul came up with the idea of using sugar cookies. They were yummy. I started my mallow's on fire...which was unusual for my sweet little Paul. I made him kiss me with burned mallow on my mouth. Haha... Oh the joy and laughter he gets to look forward to by being married to Tahnee :). It was so nice to just sit out there in dark around the campfire. They have an awesome yard, it felt like we were in the mountains, I was in heaven. Paul and I sat out there cuddling and talking about all kinds of things. I just love being with him. Then Monday we registered and drove up to Mt Hood and down the gorge along the Columbia River. It was so beautful and so fun. I was in love. Then we went to a nice restaraunt called Boccelli's. It was yummy! Paul is so great, he is always taking me to places he loves and he loves some great places. I'm so lucky to have him. I just love more and more all the time.

Okay... the moment you have all been waiting for has finally arrived (okay, maybe it's the moment I have been waiting, but anyway... moving on) the proposal story!!!!
SO... Paul and I decided to go to Disneyland a couple months ago. He got us plane tickets, rooms (yes separate- we are good people) and all the plans and reservations that anyone, especially me, could hope for. I was so excited. SO... I had only been to Disneyland once in
And I read it and there was a pause in my insides... I was like... UMMMM... Is this....and I turn and look at him and my eyes were big and I half said... Are you.... and then he stands up (the chairs there are metal and the floor stone, so this wasn't quiet) and I was like "Oh my heck.. you are going to make me cry" I look over and our waitress is leaning against the door about teary eyed with a huge smile on her face. He gets down on one knee and I cover my face with my hands and he says "Tahnee, will you be my Queen? I love you, will you marry me?" I was so excited I think I grabbed his face and kissed him and hugged him and kissed him and said yes and hugged him... hahahaha... I was so so so happy!!! NOw I new why he was
I had the best time ever in Disneyland. The whole trip. SO many funny things happened and som many sweet things too. It was seriously the best time of my life. And we are going back for our honeymoon. This time we'll have "Just Married" pins, and get lots of congratulations and all the other fun stuff... ya know.
I love our story... he did so good!!! Now we are getting married on July 7th and I cannot wait!!!! I'm glad I had to wait so long, because I got the best guy in the world... I can see how we are perfect for each other... I"m excited to see all the places we will go....
