:) I'M ENGAGED!!!!!! :)

Yes, the rumors are true. Bridget is engaged!!!! YAY! You have my permission to stand up out of your office chair, and jump around and scream!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)
May 12th, 2010 Travis Shumaker propsed to Bridget Nielson and they are ready to start their life together for forever.
I will tell this story real quick for those who dont know the whole story...
I was introduced to Travis through my best friend, Vanessa Jones Hatch. (yes, she is an old married fart now! haha) Travis and Vanessa are cousins, favorite cousins at that. She told me all about him, and thought we should get to know each other. She did the same to him. told him all about me, and told him we should date. We connected over facebook. WE messaged a few times last summer, but he was going into nursing school and got busy. He then messaged me one day in October. We started talking more and more and more. I finally called him one day, and that night we talked for 4 hours! It was a great conversation. I moved back home from Rexburg and he came to Nampa, Idaho to come visit me and see where things can go for us in January. We were already in love. He met some close friends and family. It was a great week! Then in February we met in Vegas to spend more time together and to meet his two sisters and family there! That next month, I had decided and received guidance to move to Arizona. So i found myself living with Vanessa a month before she was getting married and getting to see Travis more often. When she got married, i found myself houseless. So I am now in the same town at Travis now. I sleep at his Grandmas house and it is such a blessing for me! What sweet ladies they are!!! But i spend my day at the Shumakers. What a blessing that has been as well. I see Travis every night when he comes home from work and on the weekends all day. I have had the incredible opportunity to get to know his mom and its been just that. INCREDIBLE! So Travis and I started talking marriage. We discussed some serious things. We worked some things out, we figured some things out, talked about some things, got to know each other more. I prayed and prayed and prayed and have fasted as well. I know it is the most important decision i will make, but it is the most right decision i have made. I couldnt be any more confident in my answer and I just am so happy and comfortable with this step I have taken in my life. We discussed things with his parents and my parents, and we went ring shopping one day with his mom. I picked THE exact ring i wanted. and I mean that literally. haha! i seriously couldnt be happier with the one we picked. I was expecting him to wait a few days to pop the question, but that night when we were saying goodnight because i was going over to the grandmas to go to sleep, he got down on his knees out on his driveway and pulled out the rock! :) i was so happy and excited!!!! Simple but sweet. perfect i say!
so wedding plans are already in store.
PINK PINK PINK!!!! Pink peonies, roses and white daisies. :) we are doing different shades of pinks and white white. We are getting married July 16th, in the Boise Temple at 5:00 pm. I will be going through the temple for the first time, the day before and we will be having our reception the day after the wedding. We will then have an open house here in Arizona the weekend after i believe. I have gone dress shopping, but not much luck. If there is anywhere in Arizona anybody knows about let me know. or someone selling their dress. I am a size 6 and I am more than willing to try anything at this point. I am going up to Idaho from June 2nd to june 15th. so i will be looking for more dresses up there. if there is anyplace or anyone in Idaho that you know about for temple ready dresses, please let me know. thanks! I know this was a quick note and i have not posted anything in a long time, but its the best i can do for now. thanks for all the support and love everyone. ill make sure to keep everyone posted though! :)
