We are living in Brisbane, which is about an hour flight north of Sydney. Even though I am far away from my sister Kim, we still talk on the phone often and try to see each other as often as we can.
Our new place is a little small, but it is perfect for the two of us! It is in a great location because its close to Heath's school, and its close to the city where I work. We have enjoyed getting new things to decorate the place and making it feel like home!

Here are just a few photos of our perfect day! We got married at the Mesa, Arizona temple July 18th at 10:30am. Heath's parents, 2 brothers and 1 older sister flew over for the occasion. Kim, Ethan and Thurston also flew over from Australia. We had our reception at Highland Stake Center and HEAPS of family and friends came along. We stayed 1 night at the Arizona Grand Hotel compliments of Ginger (family friend) and then flew to Las Vegas for 5 nights then onto California for 3 nights before we head back home to Brisbane, Australia.

It is two weeks til we leave to America, and five weeks until we get married! Time if flying by so fast! I can't wait to get home to see my family and friends. I know my mom won't believe this when she reads it, but I am really missing home and am really anxious to get there! 1 week and 6 days counting....

Engagement party cake
Lindsay, Heath's uncle
Cutting the cake
Nice shot, Heath!
This was at the 7th hole and my ball had landed close to this big male kangaroo. He was standing on his two hind legs and it looked like he was flexing his pecks! He was pretty intimidating so I was hurrying to hit the ball!

If you haven't read my mom's,Lucy's, or Valerie's blog yet, I am proud to say that Heath and I are engaged! We went camping to Stradbroke Island with his family a couple weeks ago and that is where he did it. He woke me up early one morning and asked me to go watch the sunrise with him. Initially, I was thinking "oh this is some kind of tradition that he does with his family or something" so I went along with it. We went up on the rocks and watched the sunrise and then I got up to start walking back and go to bed and when I turned around, he was on one knee! Then he asked me and I said yes! We will be married in the Mesa, Arizona Temple July 18. We will honeymoon in America and then head back to Australia a week later.

We had a fun filled day at Sea World last week. The only thing I was disappointed about was they didn't have Shamu! But they did have lots of sharks and cute little baby penguins!
Other than that, we saw a dolphin show, a sea lion show, and rode a few rides. They had a new ride that just opened called the Jetski Rollercoaster. You were strapped into jetskis and then the ride took off really fast. It really felt like you were on a jetski!

Here is us bowling a few weeks ago with Chad and Irene (Heath's brother and his wife) and Miki, a Japanese student staying with Chad and Irene.
Celebrating David's 25th birthday at the drive-in movies.
This is David and my good friend Courtney who came to visit me in Australia! She has been here for two weeks and leaves tomorrow. I am so sad! It has been so fun having her here. We are on our way to the city for a night out on the town!
Aww..I love him!
On the bus on the way to the first rugby game of the season...also, mine and Courtney's first rugby game ever!
In the stands at the game....it was pretty eventful. There was a proposal at the beginning of the game; the Broncos (the team we're going for) beat the Cowboys (rival team) by 1 point; and then with a couple minutes left of the game, there was a man streaking across the field! It was pretty funny.
And for Courtney's last day, we went to church and then had a picnic at the botanical gardens in the city. I am going to miss Courtney when she leaves!
