Its the little things that matter

I have been thinking a lot about how blessed my life is and how grateful I am to have found such an amazing guy. Chase is the most loving person I have ever met. He is the most selfless person and always puts others needs before his own. He treats me like a princess and reminds me everyday how much he loves me. Every single time I talk to him on the phone he always says "I love you" before hanging up. Even if he is really busy and tells me he will call me back. It is the little things like that that I am so thankful I have in my life. He cares so much about me and lets me know how special he thinks I am. He always opens the door for me even when I am driving. I have never met someone that is so loving and sincerely kind. He is such a caring person and a REALLY hardworker. Everytime we cuddle he always asks "are you comfortable" He is always asking if I need a drink or some candy (which I need quite often). He has never spoke unkindly to me or never raised his voice at me. He is the most patient person I know and he is very good at handling stressful situations (I dont handle them well at all so we balance each other out with this). His testimony is so strong and he makes me a better person. He always looks to the bright side of things and never lets anything get him down. Every night he sends me a goodnight text, even if we just finished our goodnight phone call. This means a lot to me. When we had only hung out 2 times I told him that I love texting people good night and I love when people do the same. Ever since then, he has never missed a night. I love that he is such a good listener and he can always make me feel better. I appreciate his willingness to do whatever he can for the wedding. He is such a great helper. He will always do what he says and make sure he does everything to the best of his ability. I really admire that about him. Last night I was having a hard time and feeling overloaded with things to get done for our wedding. He was such a great comfort and never got frustrated with me. He hates when I am stressed and so I am trying so hard not to let it catch up with me. However, last night it seemed impossible. I am so thankful that he gave me his shoulder to cry on and that he sat there and listened as I rambled on and on. He is perfect for me. I love him so much and feel so blessed to have my perfect man in my life! I love you Chase!


We had a fun first Easter together! I had sharing time in Primary that Sunday so I was a little stressed out. It went pretty good though and I was so happy when it was over. Then I was able to really enjoy our first Easter. We ate dinner at my parents house and Chase helped me make Easters cupcakes. He is really good at licking the beaters and bowl. When he is finished licking everything, there is ABSOLUTELY nothing left. He makes sure of that. It looks like the bowl has already been washed! It amazes me. Dinner was very good. We had a lot of family over at my house. My family keeps getting bigger everyday and I love it! Chase and I hid all the Easter eggs for the grandkids to hunt. It was so fun to see there faces and watch them hunt for the eggs. Dylan and Callie were so excited about it and would run as fast as there little legs would go to the next egg. It was funny. Then we went over the Chase's house for dessert. His family is also really big and so it makes things fun. He played some games of fuzball while I talked with his cousins. His mom gave me some really cute shorts in my Easter basket and I love them. That is a tradition in there family. I guess Easter also means a pair of new shorts for them :) It was such a fun day but I always dread Sundays because it means that Chase leaves for Tucson in the morning. I HATE monday, tuesday, and wednesday of every week now. I miss him so much while he is away at school but only 7 more weeks!!!!!!!!

It's official... WE ARE ENGAGED!! May 16th is the big day! Chase and I are so excited and have been counting down for quite awhile now. On Friday, we went to the temple and were walking around. My dream has always been to ride in a horse-drawn carriage. We were walking by the pools at the temple and he said to me, "Chelsea, I want to make your dream come true. When we turn this corner, there will be a horse-drawn carriage waiting for us." And there it was! It was perfect. We went on an hour ride through downtown Main street and ended up at the Landmark Restaurant. The billboard said "Welcome Chase and Chelsea" It was so cute! Then we went to his neighborhood. There is a lake in the middle of it with stepping stones that lead to a dock. Each stepping stone had flower pedals and candles on it. The dock had flowers and candles everywhere with sparkling cider. He said a cute speech (although I don't remember it because I was really ansy the whole time). After I said yes, he pulled out a cake that said "will you marry me?" The whole night was amazing. He went above and beyond and went to so much work. It was such a perfect night and I will never forget it! I am so excited that we are officially engaged now! Now we have to finish all the wedding plans but it will be fun! Here are some pictures of the proposal! heres the dock
