MY final countdown:

Thank you Janelle (my newest sister-in-law) for posting this clip and letting me steal it. Janelle married my brother Andrew on August 22, 2008.
This song and video are favourites of mine (especially thanks to GOB from Arrested Development) I couldn't resist posting it because I am in my final countdown. How fitting.

I wish I WAS this kind of music. Why did we move out of the the style in this era? I'll never know. The hair, the movement, the clothes, the synchronized head banging and really just the sound! I love it.

It's the final countdown...... 42 hours.... until I become Mrs. Brittany Anne Nielsen! <3

Our trip to CANADA:

Me and Chase went on a very fun vacation to Canada. He had never been there before and I was excited to go back after a year of not being able to visit!
The drive from Salt Lake to Calgary is about 14 hours, well we made it in 13. Chase drove the entire way to the boarder. It was relaxing for me which made it nice.

The night we got there we went to The Calgary Tower. It is a really high tower and in part of it they have a glass floor overlook. It was scary to stand there looking down so far. We then went out for dinner with my dad and cousin.

We drove to Edmonton the next day. Our stops included the Edmonton Temple, West Edmonton Mall(amazing), then to my sister's house to see her and Jimmy. My grandparents came over and we all ate together- it was a lot of fun.

My sister, Tiffany, bought a new house with Jimmy last year. It is such a cute house! They have really made it a stylish home. I can't wait to have my own home so that I can try to make my house a home is such a great way.

On Sunday we went to church with my grandparents(my dad's parents). We also went to visit my other cousins at their church building. It's so much fun to see my family.

We drove back to Calgary on Sunday night and Monday we drove to Cardston. I got to introduce my grandma (mom's mom) to Chase and also introduce some Aunts to him. One of the highlights of our trip was going to Waterton. It's a Canadian National Park in Southern Alberta.

Chase loved the views and the nature. He couldn't believe how beautiful it was- it made me proud that it was home and native land. :)

I love Chase and it was a really fun trip. It was our first Vacation together and it went really well. I'm excited to always be with him once we get married.

ps: we have been dating for 11 months as of today!
