What do you get

When you cross this:

With this:
Apparently, as Clint so eloquently referred to her, a four year old prostitute. He even saved the picture on his computer as "our hooker child". Either that, or a selfconcious toddler who insists on wearing lipstick to make her feel better about herself.
I'm rethinking this whole having children thing. Adoption is a good option right? Adoption and option rhyme so it must be a good sign.
Just kidding guys! I would love our child even if she was a harlot or as insecure as can be.

We took the above glamour shot last night at Dave and Busters. I cannot tell you how hard we laughed at it. But I'll try: We laughed really really really really hard.
 We went with two of our best friends, Taylor and Brittany. We ate a ridiculous amount of Thai food, and then went to play some games. As Taylor put it, "This ain't no Chuckie Cheese buddy." I was ridiculously happy that they didn't card us. I'm such a grown up. I'm to the point now where I for sure don't look 18 or younger. That's pretty good. From the entertainment book I got for Clint, we had two coupons for "buy $10 worth of games, get $10 worth free". We spent over two hours there and laughed our Thai-filled bellies off! I'll post pictures as soon as I can stay in the same spot long enough! Hooking up the camera is just such a pain.

After we dropped them off, Clint and I had a sweet conversation on the way home. Cheese alert! I told Clint that I had never felt the kind of love I feel from him every day. He might have gotten something in his eye right then. Sure, I've dated other great guys and been "in love". I think you can fall "in love" with just about anyone. Everyone has great qualities and is capable of being loved. However, those other times, I was around 10% in love, and now, it's off the chart fellas! 110% minimum. I'm so glad that Clint and I aren't sacrificing. Take this as a lesson ladies and gents, don't sacrifice. Stick it out, and it will be more than worth it. There's no business type relationship going on here. Waiting 100 years would be worth it if he were waiting for me at the end.
We are completely, unconditionally,forever  in love.
I really don't understand how any two people could love each other more. It's hard to believe that through our lifetime together, that love will grow even stronger. I can't comprehend that. My heart just bursts with love for him already! How many times can you say "love" in a blog post? I really hope all of you get to experience this feeling in your lives. And if you're shaking your heads thinking to yourself that you'll never be this cheesy, vulnerable, or smitten, just you wait my friend! Being loved by him means more than being loved by anyone else ever has. I could never tell him or show him how much I love him in a million years because there's so much there, but I plan on spending my life trying.  

49 days until we're sealed together forever.

Its amazing that everyday you love each other more and more and its almost like your body cant even possibly hold any more love but then some how you do.You and Clint are adorable and I'm so happy for the both of you :) Have you heard the song "Then" by Brad Paisley? Its amazing! It's my husbands and my song.Here is the chorus:
"Now you're my whole life now you're my whole world
I just can't believe the way I feel about you girl
Like a river meets the sea
Stronger than it's ever been
We've come so far since that day
And I thought I loved you then."

Love! You are so right! Love like this is worth the sacrifice! I am so glad I didn't waste my time on other guys before my man. I would wait for him a million times over! These photos are oh so amazing. And yes, seeing your pictures did remind me of mine the other I had just gotten the digitals in the mail! :) You two are so precious!
