Love must be in the air.

Over the past two weeks, we've had TWO big engagements take place in our families.

First up, Trevor and Jeana.

Trevor is Josh's younger brother and we have all been waiting a long time for this engagement to happen.  Two weeks ago, Trevor finally sealed the deal and asked Jeana to marry him.

I absolutely love and adore Jeana(Trevor too!)  She is the perfect match for Trevor and the perfect addition to the Meadows family.  We need more girls in our family.  Josh is the oldest of five boys and all I know is that there will be a special place in heaven for his mom.  Those boys have put her through the ringer(they still do).  It has been so nice to have Jeana around to help me and Sandy keep those boys in line.  :)  Please pray our first baby is a girl.  The family needs it.

I am so excited to have Jeana as a sister.  I know she and I will be great friends and sisters.  I am so happy for them and can't wait for January 3rd.

Next up, my cute cousin, Whitney.

I can't believe my cute little cuzy is all grown up and getting married.  Whitney is the little sister I never had.  She and I only have brothers, so she and I have filled that void in each other's lives since we are both sister-less.  We have always been close and people often mistake us for sisters(we have the exact same nose and the same Wonnacott double chin!).  I have so many fun memories with Whitney.  From Hawaii trips, to being her EFY counselor seven years ago, to playing with our Grandma's toys when we were little, to shopping trips to Nordstrom and MAC makeup, I can't even put into words how much this girl means to me.

Whitney was the maid of honor at my wedding and I can't wait to be there with her on her wedding day.

(I tried to add a picture of us on my wedding day, but my computer is being dumb.)
I am so happy for Whitney and Jimmer.  They are in for a wild ride, but I know they can be great examples to those around them as they are thrown into this crazy lifestyle.  (And hey- I might have an "in" on meeting Kyle Korver.  Finally!)   I wish them all the happiness in the world.  I know their wedding with be out of this world.  Love you, cuzy!

The Best 2 Years

On Saturday, August 6th, Josh and I celebrated our TWO year anniversary.

Seriously.  Where does the time go?

Time flies when you're having fun.

To celebrate our marriage, we went to dinner at Benihana and it was delish.  And thanks to them, we have a photo to document our anniversary.  Thank you, Benihana!

We kept our anniversary very low key, but it was perfect.  We wanted to plan a little weekend getaway, but we are going to Lake Powell in a few weeks and we still have a million things we want/need to do to our house, so our anniversary gift to each other will be a new dishwasher. or sink. or bathroom vanity.

It was nice to have a relaxing night, just the two of us. Life seems to be as busy and crazy as ever, so these little moments are few and far between.

I am truly a lucky woman to be married to Joshua Anthony Meadows.  He is always so much fun to be around and he can make me laugh no matter what kind of mood I'm in.  No matter how hard I fight it, the boy can always make me smile when I'm upset.  He's the most patient, level headed and logical person I know.  He can always set me straight when I'm being emotional, feeling stressed or worried about anything.  I would say we balance each other out pretty darn well.  I love that he is ALL mine.

Here's to eternity, babe!

P.S.  I just realized today marks exactly FOUR years since our first date.  August is a good month.
