It's official! I'm getting married!!! Aww yeah...
I know, I know, it's a miracle. Not the getting engaged part.... I'm pretty sure everyone saw that coming. No, I'm talking about the fact that I blogged, of course! Well I decided that this is a pretty monumental event in my life and that I should probably blog about it. And maybe this way I can save myself telling the story a few times... It's already getting pretty old. But that's okay, it's totally worth it!!
Okay so here goes. Well first off, I totally knew that he was going to propose. I knew he had the ring, and I had been pestering him about it for days. I just wanted to finally get engaged! I kept telling him just to do it! So when he told me to come over to his house before the sun went down, I knew it was finally gonna happen. And I was stoked. So I drove over and we had about 30-45 minutes of sunlight left. So we drove to the American Fork amphitheater, where we want to have our reception, and walked around. I knew he had the ring in his pocket. So we walked around and talked about how we wanted the reception to look and what not. There are some stone pathways on the east side of the grassy area and we walked to the end of one and just stood there and hugged and talked. Then Quinn said something like "I brought something for you," and I said "Oh, yeah?" and he said "Yeah, something shiny..." and I laughed. Then he kinda moved me so I was standing in front of him while saying "Okay, you stand here..." and was about to kneel down, but then I kinda freaked. I was so excited and kinda shocked (even though I knew it was coming) and even nervous for some reason, so I was like "No, wait!! I'm not ready!" so I hugged him some more and jumped up and down and laughed. So I finally composed myself and he did it again, said okay you stand here and I did, and then as I was squealing into my hands he kneeled down, opened the box, fixed the ring cuz it had slid out of its slot, and looked at me and said "Will you marry me?" Well at least I think that's what he said, i really don't remember exactly. And then I said something like "Of course!!" So we hugged and he put it on my finger and we took some pictures. It was awesome!! Oh, and I didn't shed a single tear! Weird, especially for me! So then we went and walked around the temple. It was great. Then we went to Carrabbas for dinner because Quinn had a $50 gift certificate. We spent it all and ate like kings. It was awesome and I couldn't be happier!!
Unfortunately the ring was pretty dang tight, so I had it sent off the next day to be resized. I sent it on Thursday and it won't be back till Tuesday night. :( I miss it. But I'll post some pictures so you can see it. Oh, and out date is set for June 11th!! That's way soon, but we wanted to do it before my brother leaves for his mission on the 23rd. So mark your calendars!!
