Marriage License

So, I called the Denver Temple a couple months ago to see where Grant and I had to get our license from: Was it the place where we got married or the place where we'll be living? I had heard both, so I called the temple to check. I talked to nice old lady who's brain apparently is slowing down, because she said that we could get a UTAH wedding license. That didn't sound quite right but she double checked and said yep, it's good.
Well, yesterday, I had the impression to call the temple again just to make sure. Ya...Utah license definitely WON'T WORK! I found out that not only does it have to be from Colorado, but it also expires after 30 days which means I can't get it next weekend when I go home...AH! They have an absentee application but at least one of us has to be present in person to receive it.
What were we going to do?! Fly home randomly to get a license? Miss the Friday before thanksgiving when we're already missing Monday and Tuesday?! I had no idea what to do, but then mom had the idea to just drive to Grand Junction to get it. So, that's what we'll do.
I'm just frustrated that I couldn't have planned for this before-hand, but what can you do? I should have checked with the state of colorado, but live and learn I guess.
Wouldn't that have been awful to show up the day of our wedding with the wrong license and we couldn't get married?! THAT WOULD BE HORRIBLE! I'm glad we figured this out now and not the morning of our wedding :)

I'm so ashamed...

I'm so ashamed! And I'm sure all my brothers would be ashamed too, but...preparing for marriage means many times we have to compromise. Well, Grant and I had a deal that if he bought an all-sports pass and wore a BYU T-shirt to the games, that I would get a USC shirt and wear it around campus...and that's what I'm doing today. I have to hold up my end of the deal. I was planning on looking cute today...I'm having a good hair day, my makeup turned out pretty good, I had a cute long sleeve black shirt on...and what do I have to put over it? A freaking Trojans shirt! I don't think Grant understands the type of sacrifice I'm making here! This could mean my family dis-owning me! I've already gotten dirty looks from wearing this dang T-shirt. Whatever, it's all in the name of love and compromise, right?
