Kilee Gets Married!

This week was truly one of the busiest weeks I have had in a long time!!!!! It was full of things to do, but it was so much fun. One of my best friends, Kilee, got married on Friday in the Bountiful Temple! We have been friends since second grade. My mom used to teach her piano lessons and then we ended up moving two houses down from her. Growing up, we were good friends with Camilla who lived at the top of the street, Eliza, who lived in between Kilee and I, and Coutney, who lived at the bottom of the street. We all were lucky to have eachother. Kilee's husband's name is Neil Loveridge. He treats Kilee like a queen!! He is such a gentleman. I know he will make Kilee truly happy. :)

Kevin and I were fortunate enough to be invited to the sealing of their marriage! It was amazing. Their sealer was so awesome. He said a lot of good words of advice and one that I remember the most is "no matter how you change physically, love eachother for who you are and how you change." That hit me like a ton of bricks because I have had a difficulty loving who I am lately. I used to be a super skinny string bean but when I started taking birth control before I got married, I started gaining weight. I have gained probably 20 pounds since I got married. Its embarassing. If anything, I eat less, and now, I have a gym pass and actually work out. I gained it all very very quick, and the doctor said it was because of my birth control. I havent talked about it really with anyone because it's embarrassing. In the last two months, I have been asked if I am pregnant 5 times. FIVE TIMES!!! REALLY?! Come on people. Have some tact. Yes, I feel like a fat prego cow, but I know that Kevin still loves me, and I am not that big. I was happy to hear that sentence about loving who you are no matter how you change physically because It's something I need to work on.

Anyway, Heather, Me, and Camilla were Kilee's friends that attended the sealing, and the rest of these girls were waiting for us outside of the temple. I did Kilee's hair so we got up at 4:30 AM and I was sooo tired! Haha! But it was tons of fun. Kilee looked amazing. I loved her dress!! It's amazing that all of us girls have stayed such close friends. Anyway, here are a few pictures from her wedding/reception!

Well, it was a great weekend. Busy, and tiring, but I loved every minute of it. I am so happy that Kilee and Neil get to be our new married friends! Yay!
