I'M ENGAGED!!! To the most wonderful man in the world. He proposed on Sunday night and it's been a whirlwind already!

Here's the story:
I had just come back from a very long weekend of doing the 'Beauty and the Beast' musical, driving back and forth from town to town, getting up at 6am to curl my hair because I had to work all day and then drive half an hour right after to make it on time WITH my hair still curled (it worked, but I don't know how!).

Matt's mom had supper waiting for me so I went to their house and Matt almost immediately asked if we could go for milkshakes that evening. 'Sure' I thought, getting milkshakes is a fun thing to do on a summer evening. So I took my time eating supper, little did I know how antsy Matt was getting and I kept apologizing for eating so slowly but I was EXHAUSTED. So then I needed a shower to wash out the curls and the lipstick so that was another 15-20 minutes he had to wait anxiously..

SO-I'm ready to go, SUPER tired, he asks if I still want to go for milkshakes, and so I said sure because he was really adamant about it. So we head over to the drive-in and he parks in the parking lot of the neighboring building-not unusual, he likes to park where nobody else parks :P-and we walk over to stand in line at the window.

So a little bit of back story: We'd been dating 3 weeks when we stopped at this same drive-in for milkshakes after I'd met his family, and this is where he told me he loved me for the first time :) So I can't have a lot of dairy and this particular ice cream of theirs does not sit very well with me so I wasn't going to have anything. Matt ordered a peanut butter chocolate milkshake and I smiled to myself because I remembered that was what he'd ordered that first time. He asked what I was smiling about to which I answered 'nothing' and then he asked if I remembered when was the last time he'd ordered it and I say yes of course.

Then we walked back to the vehicle and I asked him if it reminded him of when we were falling in love (little did i know). We got back into the vehicle and he has a strange look on his face so I asked 'what?' and he said 'just deciding how bold I want to be' which is exactly what he said before he told me he loved me that first time :) So I laughed cuz it was cute and then he asked if he could be bold. And that was kinda odd so I said 'sure?' and he reached into the back seat, pulled out the ring box and asked me to marry him :D I was shocked to say the least. Here I was, barely coherent after such a busy weekend, I couldn't comprehend what was going on, and I believe there was a lot of 'ARE YOU SERIOUS?' going on ;)

YAY! There's the story. What a sweetheart. AND, here's my ring!

We spent all day yesterday running around telling friends and family, and finally we could relax and start some planning! Matt made us Strawberry Mint Lemonade (I picked a winner :D) and bought me my first bridal magazines! We sat on the couch discussing some plans :) I AM SO EXCITED TO PLAN OUR WEDDING!!!!

He picked a Belgium diamond so we got a box of Belgian chocolates from the jeweler which came in a chocolate box!

I am so excited I get to marry my best friend :D YAY!
