Interesting stuff...Elizabeth and a few of my cousins have done this, so I decided to google "what Emily needs" and see what I would get. I actually found some really interesting stories about women named Emily. Some of them are old women who need some extra care, some are my age and have medical conditions, one of them was a girl who wanted to be adopted, and one of them was even a horse! Very interesting.
I hope that you enjoyed this! :)

Actually, this is all 6 of them if you look carefully. They like to swim around together in a little school. Sometimes they are in a line moving slowly from one end of the tank to the other...like they are playing "following the leader." Oh, and the pipes are in there because we are don't have extra money at the moment for decorative rocks...'tis the holidays and we are driving out to Arizona for almost a week.
Our cats are really liking the fish. And don't worry, they can't get into the tank because we have a temporary cover on it...more to keep the fish from jumping out than the cats from jumping in. Could you imagine one of the cats trying to tread water in there? I doubt that they would take that risk...
Here is Patch looking intently at 2 of his favorite fish: the golden dojo loaches. They like to burrow in the sand. Sometimes they hide so well that we can't find them for a long time, but it is fun when they suddenly poke their heads out.
Here is one of my favorite fish: Goggles. He is a black moor. Ison picked him out because he has light colored circles around his protruding eyes and I named him Goggles for that very reason.
Here is a front view so that you can see the circles better around his eyes.
These 2 fish are both loaches but the one above is a golden dojo loach and the dark one is a kuhli loach. The cats both bat at these two from the outside the most because of how they wiggle all over the tank. It is very entertaining to watch them. We have 2 golden dojos, as I said before, and 4 kuhlis.
This is Skunk. We were at the pet store, again, trying to decide which fish to buy and Ison pointed this unique guy out to me. I instantly said that it was perfect because his name would be Skunk, since it has such a distinct black stripe. :)
This beautiful goldfish is Unico, because of the single red spot on it's head...I don't really like this one a lot because he chases and bites the other goldfish...we had to separate him in timeout in the net a couple of times yesterday because he wouldn't leave any of the fish alone!
This black moor is Nacht because, obviously, he is very black. He is one of the smaller goldfish and very calm.
And this is Lucy. Can you guess why? She has red hair! ;)
*GASP* This final one is Punk. Unfortunately you can't see it in this picture, but he has different colors on his fins and his dorsal fin looks like a mohawk. This was a fun picture to realize I had taken because he looks like he is surprised...maybe because I have a camera pointing at his face.
We also have 16 danios, which are small and fast, thus me not being able to take a good picture of them, and 2 green corydoras, but they were at the back of the tank when I was taking pictures and I couldn't focus on them. In total we have 30 fish and we will be getting more soon...maybe only 4 more corydoras and 4 more goldfish.

Only 5 more days until I am a Tenney!! I am ready!
Thursday, September 18, 2008
I am moved into the house where Ison and I will be living together...and I am still unpacking. I can't wait to be done with boxes! And Ison still has to move his stuff into the house, which he is starting to do today after work.
This Saturday I get to go through the temple! I am very excited! And Elizabeth flies in Friday so she can be here for it!
My allergies have been getting me and I am trying to get them under control in time for the wedding so that I am not sneezing during everything. I hate having seasonal allergies!
Work is good. All the students are excited for me to get married, so it makes me all the more excited for that day to finally come...as you can see by the title of the blog, only 9 more days to go and I will be a Tenney!
I told you this would be short...Maybe I will find some time to write another blog before the wedding, but then again maybe not. :)

I wasn't too sure about a dog...I never saw myself as a person to have a dog. I have always had cats. I have always liked cats. I have not liked dogs. Being chased by dogs while riding a bike when young makes a person not like dogs. Being hit in hard all over by a large, strong tail when young makes a person not like dogs. Being dragged by a St Bernard when babysitting resulting in black and blue knees makes a person not like a dog. But recently I have found that my encounters with dogs do not necessarily mean that something bad will happen. Like my friend Danny's dog, Capona. She is so pretty and nice. And my best friends dog, Jake. He is so good! And he listens to my commands and is excited to see me because he knows who I am. And now this cute puppy. Of course I don't like the fact that she has already peed in the house, but she is still in training.
Ison and I know where we will be living!! Hooray! We have reserved a home that is at Kirtland Air Force Base here in Albuquerque! It is a 3 bedroom 2 story duplex! I am thrilled!! We are both thrilled! I'll be moving in first at the beginning of September because that will mean we will spend less on gas and I'll be closer to work...and really close to Ison! We hopefully won't be as tired as we were from all the driving back and forth across town. I can't wait!! A house all to myself for almost a month to get organized and then....I'll be married! Yay!
I was surprised at how nice the on-base housing is! Ison was surprised what his rank qualified him for house-wise...he thought it would be in the older housing on base. The neighbourhood looks so nice and well-maintained and we only have a small section of the yard that we will have to take care of ourselves...the rest of it is maintained by the base. I just can't tell you how excited I am that we will know where we will live!

Isn't it lovely? All shiny and just a year old! It was the first car that I drove when Ison and I started shopping and nothing else that we looked at really hit me like this one did.
It looks a little sporty, huh? Well, it may look small, but the leg room is great in the front AND the back! That was an absolute must because Ison is 6' 3'' and both of our families are rather tall...and we don't like to be squished in the back. The trunk is also amazingly large and fits a lot. I sure have to reach to get to the back of it!!
And me here with my new car. It is new. It is safe. It runs well. And it is mine to drive! Hooray for me and my car! :)
And now for some pictures of the happy couple. These are just a sample because we took a lot of pictures! We used Ison's fancy camera and Daisy took the pictures after Ison would change the settings.
This pictures turned out really cute! It is in the aquarium in Albuquerque. There were a lot of people there and it took a long time to set it all up and make sure that no one was coming...
I hope that you enjoyed! I am so excited to get married to Ison! He really has been one huge blessing in my life and he makes me so incredibly happy! I never knew I could be this happy! And all because of him!

So...I have this wonderful man in my life and he is horrible about keeping secrets! ;) It is very funny...We had already talked about getting married and picked a ring, but I had no idea when he was going to give me the ring! It was making me a little crazy because I didn't know when to expect the official proposal. Well, he slipped up! He spilled that he would have to for sure call his parents again on Saturday..."Saturday?" I ask...He blew it! I was safe from the unsureness until Saturday. I tried not prying, but he also told me something about Olive Garden, which is my favorite restaurant and where we bagan our first date. I thought it would not happen until Saturday night.
So, Friday Ison left to go to a YSA Regional Campout while I stayed here. I was glad I didn't go because I was so tired! The whole evening all I could really think about was that I wanted Ison to be here with me...I missed him!
Saturday morning I got up and helped a little at my parents house with their swamp cooler. Then home I went to shower and get ready to go to the Botanical Gardens with my parents and roommate. When we got there, Daisy asked for my camera, which I gave to her. We walked through just a couple of sections when we got to this one part where couples could have their weddings. There were a lot of white folding chairs set up and an area that was risen for the ceremony to take place. Daisy told me to go pose for Ison, so I got up there feeling silly and didn't know what to do. That's when I heard Ison and saw him coming up to me...WOW! I was completely surprised!!! You can see for yourself what happened here:
I know the sound isn't very good, but you can tell what happened...he asked me to marry him and I said yes! That only takes up a little of the video...He was shaking so bad! I had no idea that he was going to be at the gardens! Of course I had a little fantasy in my head about how it would be great if he showed up and proposed, but I never thought that it would happen! :) I couldn't stop smiling all day yesterday!!!
So, there you have it...I'm getting married!!! And it will be on September 27, 2008 at 10:00am at the Albuquerque, NM Temple!!! Yay!

My turn for a spin with my daddy! That was just so much fun! I haven't danced with my daddy in years...I remember dancing on his feet and flying through the air when I was a little girl...
Me and my parents...of course Ison is all the way across the room with a scope lens on his camera...sneaky sneaky...
I had so much fun at my friend's wedding! I am very happy for her! I hope that she has a wonderful marriage and I know that Chantry will make her very happy!
