So lots has happened in that month of September. It all started when I got laid off from my lame job at VBI. The company was going downhill for quite some time so it was no surprise to me. It was sad leaving all the machinist there because they had become such good friends of mine but i really hated the administrative people there.anyways chris and i were at breakfast the day after i got laid off and we decided in that moment to take an epic road trip. and EPIC it was. we went to OR to visit his cousin and on the way there we stayed with my cousin maria at chico state. after oregon we went to mammoth and stayed at the family's cabin. So i was bummed cause i didnt think we'd be able to do a trip with my lack of funding lol but chris assured me the trip would be AN ALL INCLUSIVE BIRTHDAY EXTRAVAGANZA! lol He literally didnt let me pay for one thing. It was like a culinary journey lol. we had EVERYTHING we had burgers and thai food and sushi and surf and turn and philly cheesesteaks. yum! ok so 9 days later reality hit and i had to go job hunting. i really wasnt worried until i heard average unemployment lasts 3-10 months lol and i have a wedding to pay for . but then i interviewed at GSMS and got the job! My first week was last week and it was INCREDIBLE. everyone is so nice and my favorite part is that it is only 5 minutes from our house!!! no freeway time at all! YES! the office is so beautiful too! i get paid A LOT with GREAT benefits! I am really excited to learn more there and make new friends.
Now for the good stuff!
I have tons of stuff pinned on my pinterest board where you can check it out at www.pinterest.com/christina_boi
We have decided to get married in his parents backyard which is BEAUTIFUL! We set the date to November 3rd 2012. It is SO far away but thats only because we really dont want to leave anyone out because of budget so we are gonna save a little more so we can invite everyone and their mother (literally) lol. let me know what you think of my wedding plans! I dont know if anyone reads this but its fun to write about anyways. Its actually fun to go back and read my past posts. I was reading all the way back to when Chris and I started dating. He is so perfect! Oh also, Im writing this because he isnt here right now, otherwise i probably wouldnt waste my time on the computer! ok! Im gonna go watch some Parks and Recreation and go to sleep!

Wow my last post had such a big announcement and I didnt even write tht much about it! Anyways, Chris proposed to me. It was while we were camping out on anacapa island. we had the whole island to ourselves and it was the most beautiful place to propose. he set up the camera too so it was filming while he asked me. Our wedding will be november 2012. we want to do it earlier but we dont have enough money to have as big of a wedding as we'd like. we are thinking of doing a backyard wedding at his parents house but we want to invite a lot of people. we are gonna start planning this november and i am beyond excited. chris right now is at tour of colorado. he just finished tour of utah. I have been feeling pretty sick lately but getting better and i know he will make me feel loads better when he is here. I am so in love with him. I never thought I could possibly love someone so much but i do. I am also really happy that both of our families are extremely supportive and happy for us. I already feel like i am part of his family and he feels part of mine. Life definitely has its bumps and turns but when things are good you have to take them in and appreciate every single second. I definitely appreciate all of the incredible things i have in my life. I am so excited! yAY being married!

Chris left yesterday morning. Its really hard not being with him while Im here, but he is only gone until monday monring. he went to sardegna to race in his first race of the season. i am so excited to watch it live. i hope he does great! today krysta and i are going to Livorno, Italy. we are leaving in about half an hour and i figured id blog a little before i went. we had dinner a couple of nights ago with chad krysta me chris taylor phinney and his gf and andrew tilenski ( i have no clue how to spell his last name) its weird to be having dinner with world champion cyclist. i think if i were a fan of the sport because Chris then It might be a bigger deal to me. Taylors gf is really nice too. I hope she hangs out with us more. I really want to get to know as many of the "girlfriends" as possible lol. I come home on the 10th i think but really late at night. i am not looking forward to starting work again but i am really excited to see my friends and family. i miss burritos a lot too. mainly establos lol which i never fail to mention everyday lol. well Im gonna go buy some candy at the stand down the steet. life here is amazing. life is amazing. i wish everyone could experience this.
