I'm a Fiance and an Aunt all in 24 hours!!!!!

So, as you have heard, I am engaged!!!! I've been asked for details, so here is the story!

Our wonderfully surreal weekend began Sunday the 27th at 10am when Jake woke me and asked if I would want to spend the day at Seaside. We decided to do it, it was spontaneous and out of the blue and a gorgeous day. So we got ready and headed for the beach! We made it there around 2:30pm and got some food at Safeway to take down to the beach. We set up our blanket and were enjoying the beautiful weather and amazing life God has granted us together. I was nearly finished with the first half of my sandwich when Jake told me to put it down, we faced each other and he asked me why I love him, I explained as best I could my feelings for him. Then I asked him why he loves me, he began to respond and reached behind him to pull out a ring box. He asked me to marry him and be his wife! I was so excited, I made 'jazz hands' as he describes it, and I got to see my amazing ring! We embraced and shared the most wonderful emotions together! We walked the main street of Seaside and spent some time together, then headed home. We made it home about 6:30pm and headed over to his parents place, they already knew of course, but not since before I did! As we visited with them Jake called his brother Jordan to share the news, to our surprise he had some news as well, his wife Sarah was having contractions 15 minutes apart! We finally headed to bed about 11:00pm with cell phone on loud waiting for the phone call telling us to head to the hospital. It arrived about 1:30am and we were at the hospital by 2am. We met the whole family there and set up camp in the waiting area. The newest Wirkkala, and our newest nephew made his debut about 10:30am this morning. He is so precious, 8lbs 12oz. and 19.5 inches long. After the 2 hour wait to be allowed into the room we met our new nephew Bryson Lee! It came time I had to go to work, I left the hospital around 1pm and headed to work, my shift...2pm-9:30pm...yep on just 2 hours of sleep. I managed to make it through my shift and arrived home about 9:45pm and should totally be sleeping right now.

A date has not been set for the wedding as of yet, it probably won't be for about a year or so, that way we can get everything just right and we have time to same some funds for the joyous occassion!

Photos will be coming soon, I need to put them on the computer and upload them still, and it's my bedtime....

Frenchman's Wharf

So I have been working like crazy lately, my hours are the complete opposite as Jake's so we haven't been able to spend much time with each other lately. I came home from work on Friday which I got off at 6 rather than nine thirty which was nice and Jake wanted to go down to Frenchman's Wharf in Vancouver! So I put on my new summer dress that is way cute! And we got some subway and made it for the last half of sunset. It was extremely cold but so much fun to spend some quality time with my honey. We enjoyed the beauty of the sun dipping over the hill, the sounds of the waves in the water, and each others company!!! After the cold was a bit too much to bear we headed home and cuddled up on the couch with some drinks and tv til it was bed time. It was fantastic!!! Here are some pics from the Wharf!!!!

The move!

Good day all!
I decided to take a break and write a blog and update a bit. I am now completely moved in with Jake! I turned in my keys at the old BG apartment! I have the kitchen completely unpacked and organized at the new place and have gotten a bit of unpacking done!
My poor baby isn't feeling well and has been off work a day and a half this week, I've been taking care of him and babyin' him til he's all better!
I had a great birthday this last weekend, I got to spend some time with a lot of family that I don't get to see on a regular basis, then dinner with the fam and grandparents! Then Sunday was spent with my parents and closest of friends to move me to Jakes!!! And I even got to talk to my little brother!!! I haven't heard his voice in almost 2 months since he left for boot camp, he was able to use his cell phone on Sunday for awhile and got it early enough to call the house while Eric and Crystal were still here and was able to talk to everybody!!! He's doing well, has a bit of a cold, but is enjoying himself nonetheless.
I am going to get going and continue with my progress. Have a great day all!!!

Holy Cow another post....and not too far after the other hehe...

So here's the news since my last post. I now have a job that I start wednesday the 24th. I'm not too excited about it, but it's a job and those are difficult to come by these days. It's at a place called Alpine Payment Systems, it's just a call center, but no worries, I only have to bother business owners between 8-5, no obnoxious home phone calls driving you crazy! I'm still on the look out for something as a secretary/receptionist etc. but for now this will do. My ultimate plan is to save up and start school back up in the fall to get my Medical Receptionist certificate and get a career in that field!

I have been going crazy getting things done at my apartment today preparing for the big move! I will be moving in with Jake this coming weekend and Saturday is all booked up with Jake working and all, so Sunday is the main moving day. I can't wait!!!

I am off to eat and get some more done, I hope all of you are doing well!!! Have a great day!
