Proposal Story Part II

Here we go.  If you missed Part I go here.  So we were on our to the downtown riverfront.  Hair clip and all.  We park near the Pagoda, and as we are walking up I see a car that looks like my sister's car, but I still didn't think anything of it...it's just another car.  We walk a little bit then we decide to sit on a bench for a minute.  Kelly is texting who I thought was his dad or his friend, who were both supposed to be coming to our house that day.  Then Kelly decides it's too bright where we are sitting, so we start walking again. 
He said it was his dad that he was texting, and that he was on his way to our house.  I asked if we needed to go back since his dad was on his way and Kelly said no.  He  wanted to finish our walk first.
So here we are walking down the boat ramp.

We stop at the bottom.  I sit on a ball (you'll see what I mean in a second), and it was way too hot so I stood back up.  There is a patch of broken glass, dirt, and cigarette butts where we stopped so Kelly walks a little further, acting like he wants to turn around, then says let's keep walking. 
Then we stop again. 

I apologize for being so uncooperative and stubborn all week. 

Then he reaches in his pocket....

And pulls out a Ziploc bag with a shiny, sparkly ring inside....And I can't breathe.  And he says something like, "Well, I have something to ask you."  Because really there is no smooth way to transition to the question "Will you marry me?"
He gets down on one knee, and I think I kept saying "Oh my god.  Oh my god.  Oh my god."

I could not have been more surprised!  This was not on my mind at all.  At least not on this.  You can see the shock in face, judging how my profile looks slightly similar too a Scream mask. 

So I said yes of course.  And then he goes to see if the ring fits.  You can kind of see the panic in his face in the picture below.  He goes from beaming to serious face.  Don't worry it fits perfect, its just a little tight over the knuckle, which means it won't fall off!

Here I am, forcing it over my knuckle.

Then I have to stare at it and touch it and make sure that this is real life.

Then he had to make sure I said yes so I said yes again!
And now we are engaged!!!!...
But that is not the entire story so stay tuned for Part III

Exciting News!!!

So as you probably figured out, I pretty much gave up on blogging for this summer.  It has just been WAY to busy. 
But I had to come back today to tell you one thing...
Kelly and I are ENGAGED!
I can't believe it.  I'm still in shock.  Holy moly.  Is this real life?!
I am beyond excited and I can't wait to start planning!
Here's our proposal story:

Part I of III
So all week I was crazy stressed and busy planning for my sister's bridal shower on Sunday.  We were making food, decorations, packing things up, not mention I also had two painting parties to prepare for and I was working at the salon all day every day.  I was CRAZY I tell ya. 
So at the same time Kelly keeps saying how we need to clean the house, and me being the stubborn person that I am, I was having trouble understanding why we need to clean and pick up the house. No one was coming over.  No one was going to see anything in our house, so why do we need to clean when I have so much other stuff going on?!
So fast forward to Sunday, Kelly helped us set up for the shower, and then he left.  Then he came back to pick me up when it was over.  The shower was a complete success by the way.  I can wait to show pictures!
So after the shower Kelly wanted to go get ice cream.  I did not really want ice cream because I had eaten a cupcake and fruit pizza at the shower, and I had also been drinking mimosas all day. But since I had been so stubborn all week, I just went with it.  On the way to Orange Leaf he turned onto the wrong street, so we turned around and got back on track.  When we got to the parking lot he turned the wrong way again!

So we finally get in there, and I make myself the tiniest dab of frozen yogurt there ever was...like 3 bites worth.  Meanwhile Kelly filled up his entire bowl and then some.  It was heaping, and you know how big the bowls are serve yourself frozen yogurt places are.  I finish mine in about 2 minutes and Kelly takes about 20 to eat half of his then decides he doesn't want anymore and throws it away.

(So far this story seems pointless, but I promise it will all add up)

We got in the car and drove away and came to a stoplight where we would normally turn north, but he got in the lane to turn south.  I asked what he was doing, and he said he wanted to go for a walk on the river.  I was slightly puzzled because I am the one that always wants to do that, not him.  Also my feet were absolutely killing me and it was the hottest day of the year.  I was sweaty.  I had my hair twisted up in a old clip.  It was not attractive.  I was exhausted.  But again, I was trying not to be stubborn, so I just went with it. 

And that's it for today.  Stayed tuned for Part II!
