I'm officially a Soderborg!! And Monday was my birthday and now it is Thanksgiving

Today is my 23rd birthday! And it has been a great day! Adam has spoiled me most of the day. I had class but he baked a cake we made for my Italian class and brought it up for me! It was quite yummy too especially because it had 20 dollar saffron in it. Ha. Anyway...when I got home, he had put out the fireplace my mom got us as a wedding present. (It is fake). And on top of the fireplace was HARRY POTTER CLUE!! Yay! I love Clue! It is my favorite game and I have most of the versions. After that we had lunch and then Adam gave me a massage which was absolutely wonderful. Then we headed to Ogden to have dinner with my twin, Tanya. (Our birthdays are on the same day that is why I call her my twin.) We went to the Olive Garden and it was so much fun! After we stopped by my mom's house and looked at some wedding photos (just ones that people have posted on Facebook, hopefully the real ones will come soon.) Then we headed to Tanya and Jace's house to have some cake and ice cream which was fantastic!! It was such a great birthday! :) I also had a party the Friday before which was awesome as well! =) We played some games and got pretty competitive! Thanks everyone for the great birthday! It was the best birthday ever!!

Well now today is Thanksgiving! Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Hope you all have had lot of good turkey and other Thanksgiving foods! =) Adam and I celebrated yesterday with a girl from work, Teresa. She had a big party at her house. It was fun and lots of yummy food! Then we played some games! =) Games are always fun! Ha!

Oh and for those who want to know about the wedding, can't forget about that! It was a pretty big day so I'll share how that went! It was perfect, absolutely perfect! The morning was a little chaotic, trying to get everything together and making sure I didn't forget anything. Then we had our rehearsal at 10:30 and that went pretty well. After that we had breakfast at IHOP and I had some yummy pumpkin pancakes which I didn't really eat a whole lot of. Then, it was off to get my hair and makeup done. That was a blast!!! Leiat did a wonderful job! If anyone needs a good hairstylist, let me know! She is great! After that it was off to Carmelle to get things set up and to get ready!! By this time I was pretty calm for the most part but I didn't have Adam's ring or my bridesmaid's presents so I paniced a little! ;) And 15 minutes before the ceremony started, I still wasn't ready! Ha! My bridesmaids dresses all needed to be steamed and that was a task all in its own! So we finally got me ready and my mom was pretty much having a heartattack! I wasn't too nervous yet but as soon as everyone started to line up, I started to freak out a little bit! I couldn't believe that it was here and that all of my dreams were coming true! Oh man! It gives me goosebumps everytime I think about it! The ceremony went off without a hitch and I didn't fall down the stairs! Thank you flip flops! =) I cried through most of the ceremony! I was so happy and I was so glad to have people there that I love! We then stood in line OUTSIDE to greet all the people who were there for the ceremony! I felt so blessed that someone was on my side and gave me a beautiful fall day to get married on! It is what I always wanted! After the line, we took some photos inside and outside and then the party started! It was so fun to mingle and meet people that Adam knew! It was just a blast but tiring! We didn't get out of there until 9:30 or 10:00. I don't remember the exact time. We went outside to get out of there and our car was completely trashed!! Ha! It was totally hilarious! Once we were ready to go, I realized that we hadn't had our marriage license signed! And that is one of the things I was worried wouldn't get done and of course I didn't think about it in the hoopla of everything! So Adam called to see if we could stop by and we found our bishop and had him sign it! Then it was off to Logan! We got there at around 12:30. It was a nice drive. And our room was beautiful and Logan was beautiful! We had a blast! =)

And for all of you who might be waiting for wedding pictures, they will be up soon! If you want to see them you are welcome to check out Facebook and a couple of my friends have posted some! And the real ones are coming soon I hope!

The night before!

It is the night before the wedding! And I feel surprisingly relaxed. I think most everything is done! I hope things are going well at the Soderborg house. was a great day!! One of my bestest friends in the whole world, Kayla and her boyfriend, Marcus came out this afternoon. Adam and I picked them up at the airport around 12:30 or so! They flew in from PA! It was so good to see them!!! :) After that we met up with my dad, his wife, my half brother, and his wife. It was the first time I've met my dad's wife and my brother's wife. Overall, I have to say it was fun going to lunch with them all. I absolutely adored them! When lunch was over, Kayla and I went and did girly things while Adam entertained Marcus!! It sounds like the bonded and things went well. Kayla and I got our nails done! That was a ton of fun and it was great to catch up. Now give us another week or so and it would be like we haven't been a part for a year.

Once we were done with that, we met up with the boys and went to pick up my cousin, Dan from the airport!! I am so glad he came out! It is so great to have my family here for the occasion! I miss all the ones that couldn't be here. Especially my grandparents!

Now, I am just laying in bed realizing this is the last night I will have to spend alone. I will be spending forever with my best friend. I can't wait. I am so excited to be Mrs. Soderborg. I have the most wonderful man and I couldn't ask for anything better because there is nothing better. Wahoo!!!! I love you Adam!!! :) Thanks for all of your help through this entire process. I am pretty sure you kept me sane for the most part. Thanks for putting up with my bridezilla moments! You are absolutely amazing! And thanks you to all of our friends and family that were such a big help! We couldn't have done this without you all!! This is my last post as Christine Krell. :) Goodnight! <3

Many what a journey this has been! I can't believe it is coming down to the wire! I am so excited! I can't even tell you all how I feel right now. Mostly crazy, I think. Haha. This week is definitely going to be busy as it already has been! We have been on the go constantly! It will be nice to be able to relax after this is all done!

Adam and I, went to a haunted house with Tanya and Tiffany. That was a blast! Nightmare on 13th was pretty good this year. I wasn't as scared as I thought I would have been but I liked it. It was good to see those girls too! :)

Anyway...the Ephraim party was great! Thanks Paula for putting it all together! And thanks to everyone that helped set up. It was just beautiful! :) It was fun to meet people Adam grew up with. It gave me more appreciation for what a great man Adam is! :) :) It makes me happy to see how much people just love him. I know I made a good choice! :D

Halloween was fun for the most part. It got off to a bad start but after some drama, it was fun! Adam and I went trick or treating with his niece, Madeleine. We made it for the last couple houses but it was fun to watch her! She is so cute! Also, Adam's brother, Drew and Adam's sister-in-law, Karena came along! They were a cute pumpkin family! After the little one's were tucked in and sleeping, we all watched The Burbs. It was a pretty funny movie! I had never heard of it and I was pleased!

So this week consists of: cleaning, tests, hair appts., putting together a slide show, getting our music together, picking people up from the airport, birthdays (Happy Birthday Kristina!), and A WEDDING!!! Wahoo! <3
