Honeymoon Mixtape

It's official! I'm engaged!
You may be thinking to yourself, "I didn't even know that Rom was dating anyone... I'm such a crappy friend."

Well I have news for you...

Steph Adams has responded to three of my texts in a row!  This is big. This is the biggest thing ever to happen in our relationship. I consider ourselves to be madly in love. I'm sure she feels the same way and if she doesn't then she will soon.

I didn't believe it when others told me previously, but being engaged is so hard. The temptations are just so great. It's a good thing that Steph is in Arizona and I am in Utah, or I don't think we would be having a temple marriage.

Our wedding will be in the Mesa, Arizona Temple in July... I've always wanted to be a July groom.

Since the wedding is so close, I have done a lot of planning. I'm letting Steph plan the wedding. Right now I am planning the mix tape for our honeymoon. 

Here it is
This remake of the Beach Boys "Wouldn't it be Nice" will really set the mood.

This is Steph's favorite band so I guess I will have to bite my lower lip and suffer through a track or two. 

But here is where the night takes a turn for the awesome...

Nothing says love like  Richard Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyries."

 (at about minute two is where a naked RoJo gets up and starts conducting an imaginary orchestra)

This one speaks for itself 

I hope you have enjoyed this musical journey as much as I have...

Introducing Jason DeLange, CFO of My Blog

As you are all aware, I recently added my roommate Nate Moorhead as the official editor of the "Rom's Greetings From" blog. It's been a wonderful time having him here, and I think that he really has influenced the blog for good, even though I feel that some of you enjoyed my terrible punctuation and even worse syntax.
                Since having an editor has been such a positive change for my blog, I have decided that I need to appoint a chief financial operator for my blog as well. Fellow followers, I hope you give a warm welcome to our new CFO: my other roommate, viz. Jason Michael DeLange. What a joyous time this is for all of us.
                Now you all may be thinking to yourselves, "Rom why the heck would a blog with only thirty followers and no advisers need a chief financial officer, isn’t that completely superfluous?"  To which I say, “fellow readers, my blog needs a CFO like a heart needs a beat; it's not at all superfluous.” Well, besides the fact that Jason has been nagging me to make him the chief financial officer.
I will now give you six jobs that my CFO will perform for me.
1.     Complain about how the apartment stinks right after pan-frying unthawed chicken that has been freezer burned since you moved into the apartment.
2.     Keep you up all night as you hear him having a one-way conversation about who knows what.
3.     Frantically call and text you to come home "right now" because he really needs to talk to you. Only to find out he wants to know if he should text some girl he’s interested in today or tomorrow.
4.     Wake you up every morning at 7:00 a.m. with bagpipes for his alarm.
5.     Occupy the TV you bought to watch shows you're not interested in.
6.     Be such a good enough friend that you're able to overlook steps 1-5 and still love him all the same.  

So, readers, it is for these reasons and many others that I need and will now have an official chief financial officer for my blog.  You’ll be a natural, Jason.
