ba da bah bah bah...

1. sam is in tucson. that equals 5 hours away. (sam says he made it in 4 and a half going only 5 over, but i'm stickin to 5)
2. wedding planning is NUTS. it totally stresses me out and makes me want to elope.
3. i live in a room with practically ALL of my stuff. that's a lot of stuff for one (pretty small) room.
4. sam likes to brag about the fact that he gets to sleep in our nice king sized bed every night while i am stuck on the most uncomfortable bed of life.
5. i am trying really hard not to be BRIDEZILLA and not step on (too many) toes.
6. did i mention sam's in tucson and it sucks for me to not get to see him very much?

so here's what i've decided to do. i'm going to tell you about things i love in the hopes that it will put me in a better mood... at least until sam comes on thursday :) [oh, and in case you're wondering, the title is the mcdonald's theme song thing. (even though my family is boycotting mickey d's right now cuz they buy south american beef. we are really cool.) you're supposed to say "i'm lovin it" and finish it up for me, k :)] think of this as one of those prayers just for gratitude. i know i'm kinda cheating cuz i complained first, but cut me some slack, ok!

first up:
flip flops!

i would wear these guys all year round if my toes wouldn't freeze off in the winter! i love love love them, especially my rocket dogs. they are the most comfortable flip flops EVER. mom just bought me a new pair on saturday and they are already forming to my feet. amazing.

my ipod!

i listen to this thing constantly. and you can definitely tell... it's a little beat up from me dropping it a couple times or being tossed in my purse so i have access to it wherever. ipod equals lifesaver.

cold stone :)

DEFINITELY a weakness. they have the best ice cream. hands down. and there's one within walking distance of sam's apartment... probably not a very good thing...

the sun


i am pretty much ALWAYS cold. i tell people my body's central heating unit is broken. i think it may be true. so i love summer and the warm sun. and i love that i am moving to a warm place. i think i will like living in tucson :)

country music

i know country isn't a lot of peoples' first (or second, or third...) choice for their tunes, but i love it. admittedly, i did go through a stage where i thought it wasn't very cool, but i've found my way back to loving it. when i was growing up (and even now), it was all my parents would listen to. heck, i didn't really even know there were other kinds of music for a long time! i like a lot of music genres, but there's just something about country that makes my heart happy.


Allen J Bushman Family

gosh, what can i say about my family? they're amazing. love them :)


i'm so excited to go to the temple! i get to go for my endowments in snowflake this friday, saturday i'm going to the gila valley temple for natalie's endowments, and next week i get to go to the gila valley temple again and marry, for time and ALL ETERNITY...


i'm pretty sweet on this guy, he is the greatest:) i'm so glad i ditched nau and went to ea so i could meet him and fall in love with him. in case you can't tell from that picture, he makes me pretty ridiculously happy. i can't imagine my life with anyone else. 11 days and i will be married to this man! sometimes i can't believe that i'm getting married, but i couldn't be more excited! LOVE HIM!

ps... i don't know why the pictures are all cut off, but i'm too sleepy to fix it. sorry for my laziness.

pps... sam and i will have our own blog eventually. but that's not very high on the priority list right now. i know, i'm such a slacker.

I am so glad you finally posted! and I am even more happy that you and Sam found each other and are in love and are getting married! WOOT!

P.S. I love flip-flops, my i-pod, country music, temples my family, cold-stone (YUM) and all that stuff too! And I am boycotting Mc. D's for an entirely different reason, ask me about it later...but really we should just stay outta that place!;)
