Wedding, Wedding, Wedding, Baptism, Wedding!!!!!! Now back to school!!


We got our engagement pictures done!!!! Hooray!! My best friend, Tanya did a wonderful job doing them!! She took 900 pictures!!! 900!!! No joke!!! It was so much fun! We just couldn't help ourselves!! We started out with the purple outfits first. Tanya took us to her husband's grandparent's farm. We took the most pictures there! We just kept finding new places to take pictures! It was wonderful.

Then, we went to the Union Station, that is in downtown Ogden. And there is a train that has the red looking fan thing. We took some there but the light wasn't great! Tanya had the great idea to use the white picture frame!

After that we went to a duck pond that was very popular when I was in high school. We decided to wear the green outfits for that. We had fun playing in the water and playing on the little playground. :)

Now we have to do our invitations! Yay! We have a good idea of what it is going to look like but we just have to pick out a couple of our favorites to use for it. Send me your address if you read this and want an invite! :)

Anyway...a week ago I was baptized into the LDS faith. Yes! It happened. I am more shocked than anyone else, I am sure. But it was the right thing to do for myself and I have never been happier. It was such a wonderful experience. I can't even describe it but it feels good. I know a lot of people have been critical of my decision and think I am doing it for all the wrong reasons. But let me just say that I was missing something in my life and now I have found it. I have spent too much time worrying about everyone else and didn't spend enough time worrying about me. I have found a path that I feel good about going down. It was one of the hardest decisions I have ever had to make in my life. But I am happy that I did it! :)

Also, school starts tomorrow!! Woohoo. This summer went by pretty fast!! It might be because it rained most of June and didn't get warm until July. But it will be nice to have something else to keep me occupied. Haha. Hopefully I will be able to get wedding stuff done too. I think I got most of it done like I wanted to but there are a lot of small things to do!

I will try and update again soon. :)

Oh Christine, I didnt know you were baptized! That is so wonderful, congrats! I love all the engagement pictures they are all so fun. 900 is a lot of pictures but at least you had lots of fun ones to choose from. Good luck with the rest of the wedding plans and school starting tomorrow.

from your biggest "fan" amd recent patient from the U, I love your engagement pics. You look gorgeous!!! I also like the look of your blog!!.....I wanted to say that I'm not LDS but think it is such a personal decision and faith is an important part of anyone"s life. I know it is even more now with what is going on with my little Ireland. ...whatever reason you chose LDS, don't let someone make you feel guilty....anyway,don"t think you'll be at 2east today but I have to stop by because I left some of my milk there...I'll try to stop by again sometime during the week...tell any of the other nurses hi for me and visit (if you can) us at Primary"s or just check us out at ...Chanda

Christine, hi! It's Cynthia/Cindy Baldwin... just had to say, your engagement pictures turned out so fun! (And I so believe in taking a lot of pictures.) Also, congratulations on getting baptized! That is exciting.

We were so happy to be at your baptism and it was neat to read how you felt. I'm glad you are so happy and feel "complete". Hope everything is going well with the wedding plans!
