I think I've entered the dreaming-nightmares-every-night part of the wedding. Saturday night's dreams were all about Mom, Sundays (last night) were all about my dress. For some reason Jess/Mom (one of them) had to take my dress to California and on the way back stopped to visit a friend in Nevada. Turns out their daughter is getting married THIS Saturday so they were comparing dresses. Unfortunately, my dress got left there and hers came to me. We didn't find out till just before mine (what did that poor girl do for her wedding?). The only reason we found out was because the bodice was way too loose (showing some serious breast skin on me.) and then I went "DUDE! NOT My DRESS!" (Kinda. Why didn't I figure it out upon first seeing it?) So we were frantically trying to find another dress for me to wear and in the end settled on this only mildly horrible sheathe dress made up of lots of layers, spaghetti strap and some jeweled parts. Not nearly as pretty as mine. (Though the real question is- why did I have five wedding-dress like dresses in my closet?)

Stupid dreams. At least I woke up after that and started to have a dream about digimon like creatures and peoples that had to find them before they got caught and killed in this castle thing! 25 eggs hidden, they thought they were on a mission to destroy them (by order of the King/Queen) but then they found ones that wouldn't break and it seemed like they ought to pick them up! So they did. And just as the last had found their egg.... The queen sentences them to die! (King gets mad after the fact btw - he wanted to order the death!) But in pure Snow White style the person lets the nice kids go because one of them is the daughter of the King (aka, Princess!). And then... My roommate came home from work (she works early morning) and I decided I ought to get up.

I just had a good day.

It started out with some bad news- we didn't get the scholarship we had hoped for. So we're going to be draining the trust fund this next year. I'd kinda planned on that (because I'm a wet towel) but it's still upsetting that we didn't get it.

Well, after that I spent some time talking to Mom on the phone. Taylor and I had planned on going to the Temple today, and after the bad news I /really/ wanted to go. Because I think the Temple is the BEST way to get some perspective and heal a sadness. So Taylor and I still went. BEST idea ever. Eternal perspective. A place where the devil has NO power, so everything can really fall into place. I hope, somehow, I can make my home like that because the Temple won't be as accessible. It's a half hour away from where we're thinking of looking rather than just five minutes away. (We'll go to the Mesa Arizona Temple.) Anyway. GOOD idea.

Then I changed, Taylor changed and he came to pick me up. We went shopping because he needed food and we found a good deal on some good hamburger meat ($1.99 a lb pre patty, vs. $2.99 out of patty). So we ended up buying everything. It was fun to figure out what he wanted to do! So we're going to grill hamburgers, chips and watermelon. (YUM!)

Then dinner. Came back to my place and hung out a bit. Watched some SUV, then decided to go back to Taylor's place because he had to move his car anyway. (Riv tows at 11). Taylor got the game Cribbage on his Droid and I've been playing it so got him hooked. His roommate owns the actual game (mine is in Phoenix.) And he did really well. I ABSOLUTELY enjoyed it. I love playing card games.

To sum up- Taylor is the best fiance ever. Arizona is possible. Life is good.

Pray that we get the apartment we've got our eyes on! It's perfect for us, and we both feel good about it. I'm really, really, really hoping.


Also- Just had the best moment. One of Aiesha's friends served his mission in Houston South and knows Mimi's father. So we got to talk for a moment. AWESOME.
