Engagement and puppy training

Well for those who didn't know, Dustin asked me to marry him on New Years Eve and along with the proposal came a new addition. Chloe is our new little beagle puppy. I was so excited and happy for both the engagement and the puppy. She is a little ball of energy who does not like to be put in her kennel and loves to sit on your lap. It's so neat to see her little personality develop and mess around with her. Today she turns 3 months and I can't believe how big she's gotten Justin the few weeks we've had her. I want her to stay small forever, but becoming potty trained would be a plus.
Dustin and I havent done too much in regards to planning our wedding. We've brainstormed ideas and talked about tentative plans but nothing detonate yet. I'm surprised in how calm I am about it right now. I always thought I'd be out picking a dress right after I got engaged. But I've always been a procrastinator so that might work against me in this wedding planning. Right now I'm just happy to be engaged and want to take time to enjoy that part of our relationship. A lot of couples rush straight into planning and dont take the time to enjoy this period in the relationship.
We did go to a bridal convention today and plan on going to one tomorrow in Oklahoma city. Dustin is just beyond thrilled about it (insert sarcasm). But it's good for us to go and get ideas. I have a general idea in my mind of what I want the wedding to be like but we've got time to figure it out.

2010 was quite a year...

Well 2010 was quite a year, a lot happened between Dustin and I

In febuary dusin found out he was going ti Oklahoma State University for graduate school and to work with the cowboy football team. It was a change of plans from what we originally thought but we were going to make the best of it.

In march we flew out to Oklahoma for the first time and checked out the place. Stillwater was a lot smaller then Phoenix but a college town. We found places to live and got acquainted with the place

In may both Dustin and I graduated from college. I graduated with a degree in history and public policy and a minor in religious studies from Arizona State and Dustin graduated from Purdue with a degree in Sports medicine..
We then left for St. Thomas a few weekns later to have one big vacation before we'd leave for Oklahoma.

In June Dustin moved from Indiana to oklahoma and in July I joined him out there.

Septemper October and November consisted of getting used to this new place, meeting new people and OSU football games!
Oklahoma state went 11-2 this year and Dustin was happy to be apart of it.

In December Dustin got to go home for a little but and we started planning for Christmas. I went home for Christmas and Dustin went with the football team to San Antonio for the Alamo bowl against Arizona

He was back by New Years eve and we decided to just spend it in together since we had dent seen each other for awhile.

And as 2010 came to an end, Dustin asked me the most important thing of all

"Will you marry me?"
