UPDATE!

I was reminded today by my dear friend Katy (who attacked me at the mall) that I haven't updated my blog...so this is for you! I just got my bridals done today by my friend Tiniel who did an AWESOME job! Seriously I am so pleased and love what she did but I'm not posting them because I don't want to give it all away. Thanks Tiniel for giving up your Saturday for me and for being an amazing friend through these last 10 months!
So here is the plan: My parents and I are leaving on Thursday to go to SLC and flying out for Santiago Friday morning. That puts us arriving in Santiago around 7:30 am where Pablo will be waiting. On December 23 we will be civilly married which is the law in Chile. It is a small, basically family only event but it fulfills the requirements. Then after Christmas at my good friend Andres' house, December 26 we will show up at the temple in Santiago to be sealed! I seriously can not wait for that moment!! I'm so glad that my parents and good friends will be there with me but also that Pablo will be mine--FOREVER! We will have a Chilean reception complete with fancy dinner and dance and then off we will go on the honeymoon.
I come home on January 3rd and Pablo will follow as soon as his Visa gets approved. Depending on how fast we can get it taken care of and they submit and approve it all--it could be anywhere from 2 weeks to 2 months. At this point I am trying to just think about the time we will have to be together and that it will all be worth the wait. What's a few months when we will be together for eternity, right?
I just wanted to thank all of you for being my support system and cheering me on when I was down. I have such amazing family and friends and I love you all so much!! I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season and be waiting for more pictures to come soon!

Becky...I am so excited and happy for you! I understand on some level all the horrid red tape that comes from marrying someone outside the U.S., although I must say you and Pablo are such troopers! I KNOW this stuff is not easy, but again...I am so happy for you and can't wait to see more updates! Congratulations!

I am so excited for you!!!!!!!!!!! Although I really want to see your bridals.... I guess you'll have to post them after Christmas, along with your wedding pictures! I hear it's the law in a ton of countries to get married civilly first. I'm glad it's not here because one wedding is stressful enough!! I'm so excited to hear all about it!
