Our wonderful getaway weekend!

Bridals went AMAZINGLY well with not a smidge of rain and so that was a huge stress off my mother and I. Except Jared and Dad were late. Very late. Reason? Speeding ticket. Oh well, you can't win them all. At least they got there though. I'm really glad that I did groomals/bridals. They are the trendy thing to do and I originally resisted because of the old saying "the groom can't see the bride in her dress before the wedding day", but it just didn't make sense to have tons of pictures of just me. So Jer came along and got to carry the train of my dress and veil. Jared even cried when he saw me in my dress for the first time and we got some amazing photographs of that moment. He looked so handsome and the scenery was gorgeous! I'm really glad we did them at Red Butte Gardens. I can't wait to see them! No pictures will be posted until the wedding. But you can all wait a month right? Right.

Here are some pictures of our great adventure. We had a wonderful weekend which included swimming at the pool, tennis, marathons of NCIS, hiking to emerald pools in Zions, and BRIAN REGAN!!! We loved the getaway, and are already missing St. George. It was so nice to not have to wedding plan. But here it starts again with only ONE MONTH LEFT!!!!!!!!!! The countdown has officially begun and I am sooo glad!

All in all it was a great trip to be able to unwind. Can't wait for tomorrow!!! Hopefully I'll be able to test drive that car and have my own car again!
