in recent news:
-i'm working on a new project. it's coming soon. promise.
just be patient for a little longer
-officially an asay. [and watched a temper tantrum at the social security office. it was rather embarrassing.]
-i've been moving and organizing and rearranging like it's my day job.
the pile of "returns" has drastically decreased in size.
the pile of "maybes" is still in the same pile.
and the pile of "keeps" is almost all put away.
-fyi. being emotionally unstable the week after your honeymoon doesn't rock. just saying. 
-after monday i'll never be taking a class on campus again. [as far as i know.]
-i've got a long list of summer to-do's. we'll see how much actually gets done.
-and i couldn't be happier that design star is back. i love me some hgtv.

one of those "did i really just think that?" moments.

one time it was two days before i got married.
i was driving around campus and saw the efy signs.
it was their first week for the summer.
my thoughts were,"ahh. i'm so sad i'm missing out."
but then i thought,"wait. i'm getting married this week..."
maybe a little. 

don't worry people, i kept my priorities straight.
[you're welcome derek. you'll be happy to know you beat out those kiddies and wednesday night pizza night.]

efy loving. here.

we're back.
and happier than ever.
life seems like a dream.
too good to be true.
and we're so grateful.
we're working on getting life back in order.
our nightstands are stools from the kitchen.
our bedding, derek's twin size quilt.
and boxes lay scattered everywhere.
everyday i daydream about our wedding and hawaii.
simply perfect.
happy to be home.
happy to be together.

[full updates coming in the near future.]

in my parking lot of my apartment complex there was one parking spot with paint on the curb.
it said "AA".
it's been there as long as i've lived there.
every time i'd park there i'd think "ashley asay."
today that becomes a reality.

the last moments.

we bought a toilet at costco. nothing like last minute pre-wedding projects.
"derek is turning into bridezilla." - hilly
a shower with the neighborhood. the nicest. and the best helpers.
convo with nick w. the funny cousin. for both of us.
hannah montana jello.
that "perfect moment" walk. the sunday evening sunset.
leaving the apartment for the last time. and a "whoa sir" moment.
laughing hysterically with the homie, lover, and friend. reunion.
too much slideshowing.
creepiest text messages from the newfound portugese man.
the funniest phone call from kp.
a phone call with momma redford.
napping in the park on a sunday afternoon.
last minute planning and cramming.
breaking out like its my day job.
taking four days to pick a song to dance too.
watching hp 7.2 and making nokis.
conversations like this:
"i became seriously wounded working on your A" -hilly
"what were you doing on ashley's A?" -mom
ashley peeing her pants. almost.
hilary spooning just like the good ole days.
the automatic predict text from hil:
"hold on 1 sex."
"fetch i mean sec"
and her every half hour texting habits.
presents in the mail makes it feel like christmas every day.
moving armfuls of clothes.
family and friend visitors.
a dream of showing up to the wedding with wet hair. [a few too many times in life of missing my alarm.]
not sleeping all night. i swear.
temple session at jordan river.
a minor melt down.
more last minute to-dos.
getting the nails done.
dinner with the in-laws.
laundry and packing.
and the list basically being done.
pray i can sleep tonight.
i can't believe this day is finally here!

and a last pic:
the hilary plank.
[we're just that cool.]
