Okay this is it... I think this is a"blog" people have been asking me to do. This is all a big guessing game to me! We will see how it turns out! I forgot that Brian and I had a blog and figured I should probably start our little journal/blog!
Brian and I met the middle of June, 2007. He was a newly returned missionary and super shy! I called his little sister to see if she wanted to go longboarding around town. When I got to her house I remembered that her older brother had just gotten home from his mission and she asked him if he wanted to go with us. He was cute to me, but just really not my type. He wouldn't even look at me when he walked out of the house, I don't think he even said a peep the whole night. Anyway, he asked me on a date a few nights later and totally proved me wrong with his "shyness" He was such a goober! I loved it! He was so much fun! We talked til about 3 that morning and since then we've been head-over-heels for eachother!
November 2nd 2007, we were sealed for time and all eternity in the Mesa Arizona Temple. The temple ceremony, pictures, hair, flowers, dress, reception, etc... were absolutely perfect! It would have never happened if it wasn't for my sister! She kinda took the whole "wedding planner" job and did so stinkin good at it. I loved every bit of it! I still don't think she understands how grateful I am for her for doing that for her little sister! Anyway, we went to Cancun for our honeymoon and came back and jumped in to the real life as "adults". I finished school the end of that semester and worked at Casa while Brian was building homes for Ron Cox, which he is still doing.
We've gotten to do a few fun things this past year since we've been married... we got to go to Salt Lake for April Conference, did a few snowboarding trips, went to Six Flags with Amy and Kent, many many trips to Mesa and the temple, flew to San Diego with Adam, Steph, Adysen, Hannah, Nick, Dane and Paige and went to Sea World, and hung out at the beach, had fun birthday parties and this list goes on! Brian actually agreed to let me go on a fun McBride Girls trip to New York City which was an absolute blast! It makes me excited to take Brian to NYC when we get a chance!
Life is absolutely wonderful at the Ellerman's home! Our newest project is building a home! And Brian is actually building it himself, and I am soooo proud of him! He works 8 hours a day on building houses for other people then comes home and works 4-5 more hours on our house! He is a hard worker and am so thankful for him! I'm not a real big help because I don't have big muscles, and get cold too easy to stay outside til 9 at night, so thank goodness we have such supportive families and friends that help out when Brian just can't do things by himself.
Well... thats our first and hopefully not last blog! I'll try to remember that we have a blog and update it every once in a while!
