I confess...

I have a very Unhealthy addiction to craft blogs and HGTV. If only we had more wall space...
good thing we just signed a contract
to a much
Bigger apartment
so I can take advantage of all the projects that I've been putting off.
my goodness, I have so much to look forward to!
Here's to signing a new contract, getting registered for classes(in my new major!), a great husband, seeing family next month, a new baby niece or nephew, and FRIDAY!
Have yourself a very, very good weekend.

Back to normal life...

I can hardly believe that it's already been 2 weeks since our little vacation! We're happy to be home and are anxious for school to start! But for now, it's work work work!

Winner, winner!

She did it! My baby sister rocked the California junior Miss competition!Here's her row of faithful fans...I'll be the first to admit that we were a little border line inappropriate because we were so loud. (Aunt Judy was in the picture too, but she got cut out--our impromptu photographer wasn't too enthusiastic about the whole idea.)Beautiful girl, we are so excited to see you in MOBILE, ALABAMA!


Growing up, Craig spent a ton of time in the Payson canyon and has talked about going there together since we started dating. The six of us(Craig's dad, Craig, His two sisters, and our nephew, Codon) went up tuesday evening. Even though it was just an overnighter, i'm so happy we went. I love love LOVE camping!


Here are some pictures from our trip last Monday to the zoo. It was so fun to see everyone--all the kids are getting so big! After a few hours of seeing all the animals and chasing after kids, I was so tired! My goodness, I have no clue how I'm going to keep up with my own!

I'm no blogger

I'm no good at this blogging thing... I get behind then I really get behind. I can't believe August is here. It's been 2 MONTHS. There are several excuses(lost camera cord, lazy...), but I think my number one is intimidation. I read all of the funny, adorable, and clever posts then never know what to write. So here's a quick little update. Much has happened, and we have a lot to look forward to:
-We've had lots of visitors.
-The semester has finallllly ended.
-We got a video camera!
-We leave tomorrow for Utah which means...
Lots of family!
Cecily and Codan
...or school
Junior Miss
Giants vs. Dodgers
Bathing suits
Eating out(Danish pastries in Solvang...)

hope all is well with everyone, Until October.... :)

Practice Honeymoon

Craig and I thought it would be fun to go camping for the memorial weekend to officially welcome summer and since Idaho has finally started to warm up, it would be the perfect weekend for an overnighter in the mountains. A little bit of backround: On Saturday one of the senior couples from Craig's mission came up from Pocatello and as we were telling them about our plans for the weekend, they said, "how about you go up and stay at our cabin up in Island park? It's not far from where you were planning to go in the first place." Craig and I liked the idea to say the least, despite their talk about bugs and clutter, so two days later we were on our way! Craig went to work Monday morning then came home and packed the car...

We were so excited when we got there, it looked like so much fun!

When we walked inside, we saw everything BUT bugs. My goodness, the place is 100 times nicer and BIGGER then our apartment. We were able to go bike riding, bbqing, and we were able to relax.

The cabin is located in a community right alongside Henry's Fork, a nice little river.
On our way home, we stopped by mesa falls. Too bad our camera died when we right when we were about to get a picture of both of us. This weekend was so much fun, we just wish we would've asked for more time off work...we look forward to the 7 week break when we get to go on our REAL honeymoon.

I feel so lucky and so blessed to have some beautiful women in my life, and want to wish them a very, very happy mother's day!

Fiiiirst and foremost, I want to wish a Happy mother's day to my lovely mother for all the time that she spent helping, talking and encouraging me. If I am even half the mother that she was to me to my kids, I will be a pretty dang good mom. :)
Then to my grandma Wagner and Grandma Baumgarten for teaching my parents to be kind and loving and for the way that they have spoiled and loved me...

(I really wish I had a picture of my Grandma Baumgarten on the computer...)

Last but not least, to my new mother-in-law who has been so kind and welccoming to me annd who hass raised Craig to be the guy that he is--nice, kind, serving, loving...:)

WE have been so blessed, thank you so much for all that you have done! HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY! We love you ladies so very, very much!

Busy, Busy, Busy...

WE ARE MARRIED! AHHHH! It all feels so surreal as I sit here in on OUR couches in OUR cozy little apartment. We got into California last Thursday, April 9, 2009 and were busy bees all week. Craig was so good to help out with yardwork and babysitting while I helped clean and finish last minute wedding things. Although we were so busy, I was able to have a few little lunch dates with friends, pedicures and manicure with aunts, and a bridal shower on Saturday April 11. On wednesday I went to the temple for the first time which was really, really interesting and i'm anxious to go back, thank goodness i have a temple so close here in Rexy.

On Friday we went to SAN FRANCISCO for our bridal shoot where the lovely SUZY O took pictures for hours! I'm so glad she agreed to come out.. she did an amazing job and I'm anxious to get them back... check out her blog for a little sneak peek at some of the photos to come!

Saturday came and went all too fast, but I am so thankful for the friends and family that came to support us. We feel so blessed and loved to know that several miles were traveled on our behalf! More pictures to come soon!

Her Story

I will try my best to remember everything accurately and truthfully. It will be interesting to hear what Craig’s has to say and how they compare…
Important dates:

May 18, 2008 -I was wearing my new blue dress to church that Sunday. I sat down with Becca Mele, minding my own business when two boys sat on the other side of Becca. Becca started to talk to them, while I introduced myself to the kids that sat next to me. I looked over and saw the boys that were talking to Becca. I smiled, and after a brief introduction, the meeting began.
After the meeting, during the “linger longer,” Becca and I went outside, got our food, then sat down. We started talking, when the boys who were sitting by us came and sat down across from us. Conversation came easy during the 30 minutes that we talked and when the meal was winding down, some of the boys pulled out their phones to get out numbers … and at that time Craig conveniently pulled out his phone at the same time and snagged my number. Haha.

On our way to the car, Becca just simply said, “Kim, he was into you.” I had to think for a second so the information would register because nothing really stood out to me. “He got your number. Just your number. He didn’t bother getting mine like the other guys did, aaaaaand He was looking at you the whole time.” I honestly hadn’t really seen it coming…but to play it safe, and let him know that I could potentially be interested, I texted him later that night about an answer to a question that we had talked about. After texting for a good 2 minutes, he called due to frustration with technology and his lack of ability in the texting department, then asked me out on a date

May 24, 2009 (?)- The first time we hung out… he picked me up around 10, because I had been in Napa that weekend, and didn’t get back until 8ish. We went to a parking lot and he taught me how to drive stick. The whole time I thought he was trying to hold my hand, but he denies it. We went bowling after that. I won.

May sometime: I can’t remember the exact date, but this was when our first official date was. He made dinner—BBQ chicken, broccoli, French bread and watermelon—along with come of his work friends. We played board games, hula-hopped, and played a little bit of horse on the bball court. Haha…
June 1, 2009- Before he left to go to Chicago with his family for ten days, we decided to become “official.”

September 2, 2009-I met his family! Most embarrassing experience I have ever endured when I met his dad. The first impression that I made… we were kissing! I was so nervous to even stay with his family, because I didn’t know where our relationship was going to go at that point and for them to catch us kissing! My goodness…It was bad, but they were very kind and understanding to say the least.

December 26, 2008- He came to California for Christmas…well the day after Christmas because the weather in Idaho was so bad, he had to come a day late. I cried. And cried. He made is to California 24 hours late, but it was so good to see him, I didn’t care a single bit.

December 27, 2008- On the Golden Gate Bridge after a wonderful day spent in San Francisco, he proposed! It was the cutest thing ever—he was super nervous, despite talking about marriage for a solid 3 months before. He was shaking so bad that when it came time to actually put the ring on my finger, I had to say “wrong hand, wrong hand” he switched hands, and again I had to say “wrong finger, wrong finger.” My goodness, it was the cutest thing ever. I love him.
Important events/ memorable dates: (I had to cheat and look in my journal for these so I could get the initial thoughts that I had about each one)

First kiss- I can’t, for the life of me remember when it was in the sequence of our relationship? But it was sooner than either of us would like to admit…

Breakfasts at my house: After biking to my house, we had a luxurious meal of French toast without syrup and homemade lemonade

Dinner at his: Nearly every Sunday his cousin would make us dinner and for hours I would watch Craig play with his cousin's kids Hayden and Caroline. He is so cute when he plays with those little girls.
Nightly Walks… Lots of them. They are my favorite because they really give me time to find out what’s going on his in life, what makes him the guy he is today and what his hopes are for the future(not necessarily between him and I, but what he wants for himself and his future family, regardless of if it’s with me.) One of my Favorites happened when we had walked to McDonalds to get ice cream cones and the dining room was closed. The manager told us that we’d have to go through the drive through if we wanted anything…so we got ourselves some ice cream cones.(written on August 18, 08)

Double dates with Kreg and AnnaI remember one night we went putt putting at Funworks and if I remember correctly… I think Craig and I beat them.

Campfires… he came over on a Sunday and roasted marshmallows with my family and me. I love seeing him interact with my family.. he really is a nice guy. Haha I remember after the fire, we were sitting out by the pool…and we started kissing… then what do I see out of the corner of my eye? The House light? Yep! And who’s inside looking out? Mother? Yep! Ohhh my, I’ve never been so embarrassed in my life, but I couldn’t help but laugh and PRAY that she didn’t actually see us. (written on August 17, 2008)

Giants baseball game in San Francisco: (He requested that this story be included…word for word)After my family reunion, he picked me up in Napa, and then we drove to San Francisco. I remember mentioning in the car how expensive parking was and how to avoid such unnecessary costs…park in a farther away garage then take the Bart or Muni in. so as we entered San Francisco, I started to direct him around, thinking we’d find a garage on Market street. I remember he turned sooner… MUCH sooner. I believe it was Polk or Bush. Hah, yeah it was Polk and Bush. The FIRST garage that he saw he turned into, and when I say first, I mean FIRST. I started laughing because I thought he was joking but he wanted to prove that he could in fact find a garage on the street he chose to turn on. So… we walked. And walked. And walked. I felt like a pioneer. As we were walking down the street all I could think was “Oh myyy what have I gotten myself into. This is a verrry interesting side of town that I haven’t seen before.” I’m happy to say that I did make it out alive, even if creepo homeless men kept talking to me and looking at me like I was a piece of meat. Ew, gross. I get the heebie-jeebies every time I think about it. Once we actually got to the stadium, everything was good again. I got over the trek and decided to grin and bare it. The same was good… even if we lost… LAAAAAME that we gave away a game thanks to a pitcher who blew the game. (also written on the 18th of August)

So much has happened in such a “short” amount of time, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I love Craig Michael Fisher and the person that he is. and the person that I am when I’m with him.

His Story

Looking into the summer of 2008 my mind was full of a lot of uncertainties, but one thing was for sure: I felt good about moving to California to work for my cousin. I had no idea why it was where I was supposed to be, but it felt right, so my older brother, Spencer, and I packed up our things and headed west towards sunny California. I fell in love with the countryside of the central California right away. I knew, then, that this was going to be a great summer.
That first Sunday Spencer and I headed to the Fine Road Chapel in Modesto to attend singles ward. I remember walking into the chapel without a clue where to sit. I didn’t know anybody, but with some hesitation I sat down. I introduced myself to the girl next to me; her name was Becca Mele. She was friendly, and made me feel at home. Becca quickly introduced me to the girl next to her. I looked over and our eyes met for a brief second. I said, “Hi, my name is Craig.” She replied quickly, “Hey, I’m Kimi.” Then Sacrament meeting started and our conversation ended. Within thirty seconds I took another glance; that was followed shortly by a third, and a forth glance. There was something special about this Kimi girl.

The singles ward put on a dinner following church. Once again I had no clue where to sit, but to my surprise I vacant spot was available right across from Becca, and Kimi. I now, have no doubt a guiding hand led me to sit across from them. We ate, laughed, and then Kimi and I exchanged phone numbers. Kimi and I talked on the phone that night, then the next night, and the next and well, we’ve been talking ever since.

Looking back, now ten months later from when we met, I can’t help but smile in gratitude towards a loving Heavenly Father, who took the time to guide the lives of Kimi, and me, in paths that would one day cross. I love Kimberly Anne Wagner so, so very much. My love for her grows each and everyday. She really brightens up my life and I am truly happy being with her. The past ten months have been full of laughs, lots of fun, some struggles, and an awesome beginning to eternity.

Halloween 2008: We had such an incredible time dressing up as an old couple, ha! I will never forget hearing Kimi say, “Ohhh dear, I’ll be down in jus’ a sec, honey”, as she slowly made her way downstairs. She really looked like a cute old, little lady. I really loved grossing people out at the school dance as when we gave each other a kiss. Hahaha. I really enjoyed slow dancing with Kimi…on every song. It was fun to pretend to be old, and it was a good sneak peak of things to come.

(I'm in Utah playing with my mom and sister finding wedding things :) and he's in Idaho working)I am so very lucky to have him, but wish that we didn't have this strange tradition of being apart on Holidays. I just got our engagments and absolutely love them! Here are a few... enjoy!
