So these last few weeks have been a lot of fun for us and I (sean) thought I would share a little here and there, as well as post a few pictures. From our last post, you can see our little baby Prada. she is such a little thing and she is such a fun dog. The gift was way too much from Alexa, but seriously how cool is that? When we were at Petsmart buying her little pink crate and pink collar with some bling, I had to look back at myself and laugh a little. I felt compelled to comment about the very masculine and manly dog that we had recently purchased. ha. but seriously it was a great birthday and I love little Prada. And no, I didnt pick the name. I would have gone for Bruiser or Spike. haha no really, she is such a little Prada it's ridiculous. This past weekend Alexa and I had the priviledge of hanging out with the Stevo's, which is always a ton of fun. We went to the Real game against Chivas and I gotta say, soccer needs to figure out more ways to score or something. A 1-0 loss on a crappy play where the goalie and defender run into each other and the chivas attack run the ball into the goal is not a real way to win. Its kinda like that BYU game a few weeks back, who really wants to win on a handout? Anyways, it was great to see the Stevo's and meet little Andie. She was a trooper during the game and such a doll. A few pics will surely follow this post. But as far as us, we are both battling a wicked head cold as of late. I am not sure how I got the cold to begin with as Alexa's family all had it excluding Alexa... and sure enough after I am sick for a day and a half, she gets it. I am feeling better alread but Alexa is hitting the brunt of it as we speak, so feel better babe! Sorry... Other than that high note, we have our engagement pictures on the 3rd so we are pretty jacked about that. I just cant wait to be married to her. Anyways, have a great day!

Yesterday was Sean's birthday and for weeks I had been dreading the thought of having to go out searching for a gift for Mr. Picky Pack. I had thought of a few different things but nothing seemed quite good enough. After much thought and deliberation I decided to take a risk and buy him a little Yorkie puppy! As many of you know my family has a Yorkie named Starlette and close to eight weeks ago she had 2 little girl puppies (sadly one died shortly after she was born). I have been wanting a Yorkie of my own for so long--as I can't take the family dog when we get married--and Sean and I had discussed getting one in about a year or so because he absolutely loves Starlette and wouldn't mind a small dog in the house. Well much to his surprise I worked it out with my mom to buy the puppy from her for Sean's birthday. So with much excitement we are pleased to welcome to the future Pack clan the adorable Little Precious Prada Pack! Happy Birthday baby! You are the best! I love you!!!

So I am home. How nice! I really underestimated how difficult this summer was going to be away from my bride but now that it is over, I couldn't be any happier. I got home last weekend and we have had a great week together. Being home again makes me realize how much planning there really is in a wedding, and I am really glad that Alexa has taken the reins and really done so much without me. I am really proud of her, and December 6th can't come any faster. So a few freaking exciting things have been happening as of late... 1. My best friend James Simmons' sister Jessica Robinson won a million dollars on Deal or No Deal!!! What? Yeah, seriously. It has been really hard keeping it a secret for quite some time but how awesome is that? James found out when we were in Indiana from some random kid that happened to be at the taping and recognized James' mom. Random, but awesome. We were so stoked to watch it. 2. Well, maybe this should be number one (sorry babe) but WE ARE GETTING MARRIED IN 3 MONTHS FROM TODAY! Holy! Last night, both sets of parents joined us for dinner at my favorite Thai food place here in Provo, Bangkok Grill, for a little meet and greet. I think things went pretty well and the food was delish. Alexa was a little nervous pre-dinner, but I kept my finger out of my nose and hopefully didn't embarrass myself or family too much. :) 3. My little niece is the cutest thing in the world. Kaylee really grew a lot over the summer and I was so stoked to see her again. She is all over Shane and Shara's blog if you are interested in checking her out, but seriously, such a doll. She is running around everywhere and talking up a storm--- most of which is in a lost ancient language that someday I hope to understand. Ha, but really, I can't wait to spoil the crap out of her with ice cream and things once she is a little older. Going along with talking about the other Pack's, they find out what their baby's sex will be this next week. Theoretically, that should be number 4, but since it is along the same thought/family, I am lumping it together. Well as I sit here and wait for Alexa to get ready for the day, I am just so lucky and thankful for my life. Its pretty sweet how things are working out and I thought I would share. Sorry its not funny this time, wait, hopefully you found the other posts funny or I am an idiot. Anyways, Later Skater.
