It's official!


Well if you haven't heard, we got engaged this last saturday! I wasn't expecting it so soon. I figured it wouldn't be for another week, because my ring wasn't even finished! But little did i know as i left work saturday, that i would be surprised with the best surprise i could ever have. Leaving work i got to my car and on my windshield was a letter. I opened it up thinking it was just a quick little hello, but as i kept reading the words "this is where we began" (america first) and that we were heading down the "express train" to eternity and that i needed to go over to Express in the mall to pick up something he had left there for me....i knew something was up. When i got to Express ....feeling quite embarrassed...i went up to the counter and talked to the manager and told her my name, and she handed me a little bag that had a necklace and earings in it and another letter. This letter told me of how he loved my style and good looks and to go to the place of books on 25th street. This was a good feeling when i had NO idea where that might be. Is there a book store on 25th street? WHERE DO I GO?! Good thing i was on the phone with my dearest mother...of course, and we remembered the library on 25th...duh. So then i went to the front counter at the library and there they had for me a big picture of the Bountiful temple (where we are sealing the deal) and a book about the symbols of the temple. Not to forget yet another letter. In this letter he told me to wear the jewelry that i just got, with the dress he had bought me a month or so back (he spoils me) :D and to come up to his house in the valley and he would be waiting for me. At this point the tears started coming. It was actually happening!! So i hurried home, got all ready and anticipated what i would find when i reached his home. When i got to his house, he had roses all up his walk way, in through his house, that led out to his back deck that over looks the beautiful Pine View Dam. When i got out there, it was a sight to see. Lights strung everywhere, roses all over the deck, a beautiful table set up with his moms china, all ready for a yummy Olive Garden dinner (our first date)......and there he was, my man....standing there with a rose. He walked towards me...i melted. We hugged. He kissed me. He said all his sweet words. Knelt down. Propsed. I screamed of course i'll marry you! He placed the ring on my finger and it was official. Eternity here we come. That is our story. I couldn't be happier :)

I just read your blog .. it made me cry. Isn't crazy how fate works and how the decisions we make lead to something better! Always remember the other before yourself and you will live forever after! If you both give 110% its the key to happiness. I love you so much and can't wait to truly initiate Preston in our family. I love your picture ... why don't you just get married at his house .. on the deck with the dam in the background! Who cares if the backyard isn't completely finished. I would be willing to help get it all fixed up. Wasn't that were you had your first "date"!? And where you were proposed too. I think it would be perfect. Let me know what I can do to help! I love you both!
