There's nothing like watching your loved one come through airport security!
|This is the look of pure joy haha.|
We got the guys settled in for the night, and so the week began!
So like I said, the guys came and stayed for a week. We had really been looking forward to their visit... Me, for obvious reasons haha, and also because these two put together provide the most hilarious entertainment! We spent the week wandering around downtown, going to different church services, going to Africam, and just having a good ol' time! Here's a few random pictures...
|Andrew preached at Elder Wakefield's in the morning and at our church in the evening!|
|We had a little celebration for Beth's birthday|
|Getting ready to fly back home!|
I have to say though that the best part of the trip was on the last day... Yes, the last day of a trip is usually not the favorite for long distance couples, but on the last night of Johnny's time down here, we went to the Estrella de Puebla, the large enclosed ferris wheel here in town. We laughed and talked and admired the view as we went up and around. But then, when we got right to the top of the wheel, code words were spoken, a hidden bouquet of roses was whipped out of a bag, and Johnny got down on one knee!!
Needless to say, I was SURPRISED!!!
Now, what was my response?-- "Really?? Are you serious??"
LOL. See, this is not the first time in our relationship that this guy has gotten down on one knee!
|"Tying his shoes" hahaha|
|Such a tease ;P|
After what seemed like forever (in reality only a couple seconds haha!) for a very nervous Johnny,
I said YES!
Thanks to these two, all of Johnny's plans were pulled off seamlessly!!
|Ya done good, guys!|
And the second part of this special surprise was that all of my family was waiting at the bottom of the ferris wheel ready to meet up with us afterwards! Much hugging and crying ensued. Haha!
This girl right here... We are going to be lost without each other, that's for sure!!
I have been quite busy these past few weeks! I wanted to get this post up ASAP, but it just did not happen that way! And now we are in the thick of wedding planning and so very busy. We are currently sending out the save the dates! To our faithful readers, who we appreciate and love, if any of you would like to receive a save the date and invite, please leave your name and address in the comment section!! If your comment contains an address, we will not publish your comment! We'll be getting married on February 17, 2017 in Twin Falls, Idaho. And because many of my loved ones here will not be able to participate in my American wedding, we'll be celebrating with a second wedding on the 8th of April here in Puebla! You all are very welcome to come to either or both haha! ;P For more details, you can visit our website: theknot.com/us/wakefieldcollins.
-Nicole Wakefield, soon to be Collins ;)
