Ashley and I are getting married....

Yes, you heard me right. But not to each other. Prop 8 passed.

In true "Ashley and Laura" form - we are doing this together, and getting married two months apart. We were both lucky enough to find amazing men that complete us in ways that we were unable to do for each other - that being, the opposite sex. 

I am more than elated to announce that I am enfianced to Cortney Nelson, and by marrying him, I'm gaining:
-Someone who is - honest, thoughtful, ambitious, loving, highly intelligent, romantic, hardworking, open-minded, respectful, kind, spiritual, adventurous, funny, my best friend, and perfect for me in every way. 
-A family, the Nelson's, that I have been in love with for ten years now - one of the most amazing families I've ever known. 
-One of my very best friends, Erin, as my new sister, and two nieces, a nephew and one on the way that I absolutely adore. 

What he's gaining:
-An equally as lovable and perfect family who loves him, the Campbell's, as well as a baby on the way and Olivia....need I say more?
-Someone who is - a little OCD, sometimes cynical, sometimes funny, sometimes high-maintenance, a little neurotic, but someone who absolutely adores him and loves him more than words can express.

Thanks for proposing to me Cort, sorry this post is long over-due, and my wedding countdown couldn't be going any slower.... :)

Your little niece is so cute. She looks so much like you! I guess she looks like her dad, but she's a girl so she looks like you. It's the dimples. I'm jealous of you and Cortney's kids - they'll have those dimples. Congratulations again! Can't wait for April. I'm more excited for that than my cruise. That's big, just so you know. That means I love you A LOT!

Congratulations Laura. This is happy happy news. We love the Nelsons and lived in their ward when Court left on his mission. I'm thinking that your wedding is the same day as my due date. I'll just check your blog everytime I need a reminder of how long I have left. Ha ha.
