It's official! I'm going to be a Wright!

Okay, I am so excited to make this new blog! I wasn't going to write anything on it until after we got married, but I couldn't wait! As most of you know, Drew and I are engaged!! I can't even explain how incredible it feels to have someone love and care about me the way Drew does. I am honestly SO blessed. For those of you who don't know, Drew and I met in January. We started dating like the second week of school and have been living a fairytale ever since. Growing up, Drew isn't anything like I imagined. He is honestly 20X better. As far as the engagement story goes, Drew and I have been separated the last couple weeks. He is working in Pocatello and I am going to school in Rexburg. We get to see each other on the weekends. Here is the story:

          On Friday (April 22) I road the shuttle down to Pocatello after a week of not seeing him. He took me to dinner to Wingers (FYI, the first night we met, we went to Wingers with a big group of people and it is also where we went on our first date). Dinner was great! After dinner, he didn't really have any specific plans so we just drove around Pocatello for a while talking. Finally, on our way back to Inkom, we decided to go to the top of the mountain and watch the sunset. Fortunately, it was actually a fantastic sunset. After watching the sunset for a while, he started telling me how much he loved me and how he didn't ever want to live with out me. He said my name and I looked over and that's when he got down on one knee and opened the ring box. He said, "Ashley, will you marry me and be my eternal companion?" I was speechless! I didn't say anything for a good 30 seconds. Finally, a YES came out!  He was about to put the ring on my hand then I realized he was holding the wrong hand. So I whispered, "That's the wrong hand" (He was a little bit nervous) The ring is absolutely perfect! We had gone ring shopping the week before. I wasn't expecting to get it so soon though because we didn't (and still don't) have any money. It was a pretty big surprise! To sum it up, I am absolutely and incredibly excited to marry Drew Thomas Wright. He is perfect for me and we are totally in love. :)
              The Official Date is August 19th, 2011 in the Logan, UT Temple! I cannot wait until I am sealed to Drew for time and all eternity and officially be Ashley Elizabeth Wright! I have never been so sure of anything in my entire life! Life is so great! I am so blessed and I am living a real life fairytale!

Date night! (one of our first dates)
Went Rollerblading in Pocatello!

 Count your many blessings! I know I have a lot!

Love, Ashley (almost) Wright
