Well hello everyone! I thought since Jordan and I are getting married and moving to Henefer I'd create a little blog by which you all can as the title says "keep up" with us.
So here our relationship in a nutshell:
Jordan and I met in December.
(My first ever Jazz game. One of our very first dates.)
We hit it off. Obviously. ;)
(I've been to more Jazz games in the last six months then I have in my whole life.)
(I make him take lots of pictures with me.)
(Mat Kearny Concert. Feb 2012)
(My brother's wedding in Las Vegas)
(We even got some fish. Bonnie and Clyde. They died two days later.)
And we fell in love. And decided we were going to get married.
(Us at the Gilla Valley Temple in AZ)
And then decided to tell our parents we wanted to get married. I wish I had the filmed both of their reactions because I would love for you all to see them, my bad! Anywho, Jordan's parents gave us two beautiful rings that they had been saving for Jordan when he decided to tie the knot and they gave them to us to use however we wanted.
March came along and we went down to Arizona for Jordan's nephews baby blessing. He hadn't asked me to marry him yet and I was dying for it to happen. I even made him promise that it would be before April 1st, or else I would die. Nothing came and there was no ring on my finger by the time I was to leave for AZ. Needless to say I was a little bummed. Karli, (Jordans sister) and I flew down to Arizona that weekend and met the rest of the family there, we got there on a Thursday night and that next day Jordan had asked if I wanted to go back to the Gilla Valley Temple and take family pictures. Riiiiighhhhttt...family pictures. Something was up. Friday rolled around and still nothing was happening. We went to dinner and Jord was sweating like a pig the whole entire time, and acting a little standoffish. I knew something was up but I didn't want to get my hopes up in case it wasn't going to be happening that night. We headed up to the temple, Jordan was still sweating, go figure. We started to take pictures and then Jordan was distracting me, something along the lines of "Maggie those are bats in the sky, not shooting stars." "Jordan those are shooting stars, they aren't freaking bats!" Then they had us take a picture with Jordan's four nieces, at this point I had forgotten all about the proposal idea and was still trying to convince Jordan those were not bats in the sky. We took a few pictures with the girls and then Jordan's brother Riley came to show me the pictures on the camera, he said something like they didn't turn out right and zoomed in on the four little girls holding signs that said "Will You Marry Me?" At that point I knew what was happening and just started to cry. Jordan had to tap me to look at him and there he was down on one knee. We were both so nervous and excited that he forgot to put the ring on my finger till I asked if I could put it on. Of course I said yes, and of course I called my parents crying.
(Us and the gals.)
(We had to get home and post it to FB. It wouldn't be official.)
I can honestly say that I'm the luckiest woman on the planet to have found Jordan Porter. He is the most kind, gentle, sweet, caring, loving, patient man. I can't wait to spend Eternity with him, and to have a family together. I know Heavenly Father placed His hand in our lives so that our paths would cross, and I thank Him daily for that.
Our wedding date is August 10th and we couldn't be more excited. We hope you can join us!
