Thanksgiving Break!

This was our first trip together and it was pretty much perfect!! I had a wonderful time with Clint (like I always do) and I loved getting to know all of his family and meeting new siblings and nieces. It was a great Thanksgiving and I decided what I am most thankful for are my family and the values they taught me and love that I feel from all of them....and I am grateful to be marrying into a family that is very similar to mine and that welcomed me with open arms without even knowing me. I am very blessed!

Clint-1 Ryan-1

Ryan Kent McBeth, this post is to inform you that my Mom has awarded Clint 1 point. You may be saying things like "Holy COW" and "What the Devil" or "How did this happen?" Well, lets just say that tonight was the first time we saw Parker smile, like I am talking big, sparkle on his teeth, smile.......get this, while he was PLAYING BASKETBALL, like in a game and everything. It was a historic moment and it is all thanks to Clint. Parker made a shot and as he was running back down the court he looked up at Clint and smiled. Thats all. Better step up your game brotha!

Cowboy Poetry

Clint and I spent a weekend in Heber and got to enjoy a wonderful night of cowboy poetry and cowboy music. It was so entertaining and quite funny. I can't forget to mention the auction that my Dad participated in...famous last words "Michelle I promise I will stop at ______ dollars." Well, the joke is one him because the bidding stopped with him just $10 away from his stopping point. That my friends is why we don't gamble in the Davis family:)

And let me introduce to you the infamous FAMOUS Lazy B Wranglers!

My little buttercup, has the sweetest smile

I know I have been MIA lately on my Blog but I have good reason. I am in school full-time, working part-time, planning a wedding and trying to keep my sanity. Cause enough to not blog for a couple of weeks, I think so. Just a heads up that I really probably wont be around here for the next little while as I try to keep life under control and organized. I will make sure to post pics up whenever possible, because lets face it, most people enjoy the pictures more than my silly comments and rants anyway. Peace!

I'm Engaged!!!!

I am sorry this has taken too long (Aunt Kristy) But I am finally putting it all up! General summary: I met Clint Sep '08 in Romania briefly in the city of Brasov. We met up again in July and went on our first date on the 8th and played tennis. Ever since he has been on my mind and I am lucky enough that I have been on his too:) We have been dating for almost 4 months and yesterday he asked me to marry him!

To preface the story he has been pulling my leg a lot and getting my hopes up that he might propose soon. Naturally, when he asked me to go on a picnic with him up in the canyon I told myself "Don't get your hopes up, he is just trying to throw you off." Originally he was trying to throw me off but then when he found out from his source I wasn't expecting it he changed his plans.

The picnic was perfect. He has Cafe Rio, Sparkling cider and a playlist of songs that are meaningful to both of us. We really enjoyed the picnic and just being together. After we finished eating we were lying on the the blanket just listening to music. Then he kissed me and as I pulled back and opened my eyes I saw that he was holding a ring in his hand. I was so happy and excited I just kissed him again before he could get the words out...but he did and asked me to marry him, which of course I said YES! I have never been so happy before in my life and cannot imagine spending eternity with anyone else. It is a great feeling when you just know that person is the one you want to share all your good and bad (future) experiences with.

If you want to know what was on his mind you can ask him at our wedding or give him a call really think I would give you all his number...I know my family better than that. I love you all so much and Clint and hope you will all make it or try to make it to our wedding. It will be Jan 14 at the Salt Lake City Temple with our reception at Sundance. Enjoy the pics!!

Right after he proposed!

Up at Sundance mom was the first to know and see the ring.

This is where we are having our wedding I am so stoked! So beautiful!

Young and the Restless

Don't let the title fool you this is not about the sitcom (thank heavens) its about a movie I watched recently in class. It was about young adults in China and what it is they want from life and the goals they have. Then I had to interview 6 people (3 guys and 3 gals) and ask them what it is they want from life....I found it interesting that all six of them discussed how they want a family someday and how important it is to them.

Talking to them during these interviews it just made me so happy and grateful for the culture, and Religion, that I have been raised in. I love the importance expressed about families and the eternal perspective with it all. I love my family and I cannot imagine my life without them. It will be incredible when someday (not any day soon) I will be able to start my own family as well.

Taryn was one of the six and she said something that I took to heart "You see so many problems in this world and most of them start in the home." I could not have said it better myself.

"To put the world right in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must first put the family in order; to put the family in order, we must first cultivate our personal life; we must first set our hearts right."

I just love good quotes!
