Blogger death by busy-ness...

Hi. My name is Andrea Hunt and i'm sad to report that i've officailly died as a blogger since i got married!
Trying to keep up with moving in, trying to find the niche of married life, school, and all sorts of other fun stuff; I havent had time to write anything down!

(plus, the whole not having internet at our house is a BIG factor...)

In a few days it will be 2 weeks since Jace and I got married.

And it was the best day.


It only was, like, the hottest day in the month that we've had...(mid October people. really?)

and we had a billion relatives coming in from all directions.

and the nervous butterflies of not knowing what comes next.

but the best part?? the anticipation of becoming Mrs. Jace Hunt.

and spending FOREVER with Jace.

Everyone always says that their wedding day was a blur, that they didnt remember anything from it, and that they really couldnt/didnt appreciate what was going on around them.

Not the case for me.

I remember most things perfectly.


i truly enjoyed myself the entire day!

We went to the temple at 930 AM...

Were sealed to each other, surrounded by friends and family at 1030 AM

(YAY jamie's beautiful baby decided to wait till her due date!)

Had a fantastic lunch with our friends and family at The Landmark at 12 PM

Jace and I went to relax and pack at OUR house for a couple of hours

Got ready to go get family pictures at 530 PM

Reception started at 630 PM and FLEW! to 9 PM

Where we jumped in the car, went back to our house to change, and left to the hotel.

My reception was truly magical. I cant even express how amazing it was! We had it in a cultural hall, but it was surrounded by tent like material with a lighted tent expanding over the entire room.

There were red and white roses EVERYWHERE! Red and black beta fish adorned some of the tables (yes...i kept one and named him WALKER, TEXAS RANGER)

Pictures of Jace and I were on every table.

My cake was beautiful

(though not what i ordered)

and I had so many friends and family offer to help that things went as smooth as they couldve.

It was incredible, and i've never felt so loved.

I have my soon as we get internet at our house or i have more than a few minutes at my moms I'll post them :)

For our honeymoon, we went to my families ranch up in Pinedale. The weather was PERFECT! I was completely comfortable...and poor Jace was freezing the whole time. But it was awesome. Just relaxing and focusing all our time and energy on each other. It was a great bonding time for us. The 4 days seemed WAY too short...and we had to come back to reality. School and work were calling our names. However, it still doesnt feel real. A few nights ago, Jace and I were driving home and i had the weird feeling that my mom was going to call to see where i was and when i was coming home!

Last night as we were talking and getting ready for bed, i looked over at him and thought, "oh my goodness! we are so married! weird!" then i snuggled him :)

(NO that is not us.)

Life is great. It may not be exactly what we want or how we want it, but how blessed are we to be where we are!??!

On another note:

When i joined the Hunt family i became an insta-aunt to beautiful Grace (2.5) and handsome Corbin (1).

A week after Jace and i were married i became a REAL aunt for the first time. LOL

Alyssandra Lee Hunt was born to Josh and Jamie.

and shes GORGEOUS.

i love babies.

and right now, i'm loving the fact that they arent mine. so i can love them, and play with them, and then give them back to their parents

Mrs. Jace Hunt


Its finally here :) I can move past all this wedding planning and junk and be married to jace. i'm so happy!!!
We are getting married at 10:30 tomorrow morning, surrounded by our family (lots of them) and good friends at the temple. How lucky are we?!
My grandpa and grandma flew in from Montana yesterday, as did one of my bridesmaids (Kendall) from Utah! Everyone else comes today!!! I feel very blessed. My uncle Brian from Alaska is coming, my cousin sheri from California, my aunt Debbie and Uncle Jim from California, and a surprise my aunt Judy from Utah. They are all coming to see me and Jace!
Other uncle that seemed to be slipping from this life?...yeah...he totally is doing much better! He is still losing his battle with the cancer, but he is up and moving...he answered the phone the other day when i called and sounded just like the old Bruce. I couldnt believe it was him! He also was out running errands with my aunt a few days ago. He stayed in the car, but he was OUT. I think he may just make the wedding. (crosses fingers)
What a joy that would be!!
Jace and I are going to my ranch for our honeymoon. No internet or computers up there....and i'm really excited about that thought. :) So, until we get home and have time to write again, be happy! See you soon!
Andrea Hunt :)

10 days.
that is all jace and i have left till we are married!!!!

I cant believe it is ALMOST here. FINALLY! These past 4 months of being engaged were crazy and much needed, but the last month or so were just annoying! Everything is pretty much done...its just making sure everything gets there the day of. I have family coming in the Tuesday and Wednesday before ((i cant believe they are actually coming! its so exciting)) and Jace's family is coming...there will be so many people that they've just decided to do a family reunion while everyone is here!

2 Saturdays ago was my bridal shower thrown by all of my aunts. Renay was so sweet to open up her home! I felt so blessed and loved to have everyone show up, Jace and I are truly blessed to be from such great families. I have some fun pictures that my aunt and cousin took...i'll try to get a couple up soon.





This last Saturday was The Jeff Hunt Band's show at Tempe Market Place! For all of you who dont know, Jace, his brothers, and some other talented men are in a band! They have an awesome sound and they have so much fun together. They are starting to do bigger shows and Oct 3rd kicked it off! It was great seeing people enjoy their music.





Its so crazy how many things we are counting down to. First it was the shower, then it was the show. Now my bachelorette party thrown by my MOH is this next saturday, then its family flying in, then FINALLY the wedding!





Only 5 more weeks in school until i'm out on the clinic floor! I cant belive its already been 5 weeks since i've started! CRAZY.





But thats not all!! My future SIL Jamie is very prego...and due the week after Jace and I get married! We are all so excited to welcome the next baby Hunt into the family!





My little cousin Richie (who is not so little anymore) received his mission call to Honduras! He reports this next Wednesday. We had an open house for him last night. It was so fun for me to remember funny stories about Richie growing up and realizing that he now IS grown up and going to teach the Gospel. I'm so proud of him!





On a much sadder note, my dear uncle Bruce was diagnosed with cancer a few months back. We didnt even know he was sick, so it took us by complete surprise. He has progressively been getting weaker and last night my mom had us go over to basically say goodbye. It was so hard for me...i feel like he is more of a father than an uncle and i couldnt make myself say goodbye.
He recognized me at first, but not so much by the time i went to leave. I had Jace with me and he leaned in to hug my uncle when Bruce became pretty clear. He knew who was hugging him...kissed Jace on the cheek. My aunt said "Jace is going to be taking care of Andrea for the rest of her life" and my uncle looked at Jace and said "he better."
What a sweet experience for the both of us. He is such an amazing man. I'll miss him more than i can ever express.
How blessed are we, to know that we have eternal families?? It would be unbearable if we didnt have that knowledge. I love my uncle and i'll miss him dearly, but how fortunate for us to know that he has work to do on the other side, that he will be out of pain, and that we will see him again.





Well, thats it for now. I'll continue to post and keep you up-to-date on the countdown :)
