Guess What?!! I'm engaged!!

So it is official I'm engaged!! Last night My wonderful boyfriend got down on one knee and asked me to marry him!!

So we had dinner at Dave's house with my sisters and Porter. Afterwards we went to the park and played with Porter where he would throw sand down my shirt. We had a lot of fun at the park. We sad goodbye to everyone,and then sat down on the porch. He asked me if I wanted to go for a walk around the daybreak lakes and I said I didn't want to go I was tired from playing at the park! He asked me again and I said I didn't want to go!! I said can't we go tomorrow. He told me he thought it might rain! So I gave in and said I would go....

Side note I am a super big chicken, I hate being scared and I also freak myself out a lot!
Okay back to the story...

While we are on our walk I kept thinking it was dark and scary so I would say things like.. "what if there is a serial killer behind that bush right there?, This would be a perfect place for a killer.... What was that sound?... Did you here that?" The whole entire time we were walking. He was a little quite on the walk too... Which made it a little scarier because he wasn't being very playful. That happened through the whole entire walk.

Then we past this part where you get a pretty view of the Oquirrh Mountain Temple. I turned to him and said " Are you going to take me to the temple?" he gets all "Ahhh ummmm I don't know, am I?" So I was thinking okay maybe I'm not where he is, in this relationship.

We get to this bridge and I run ahead of him and stood in the way and I said "you have to pay token to cross the bridge" so he gave me a kiss and proceeded to tell me how much he loved me and how much he wanted to be with me and how he was going to take care of me for the rest of my life and that he did want to take me to the temple. I thought oh how cute and I gave him a kiss, but while we are kissing his arm starts to twitch and he was moving around.
H:"What are you doing?" and then he proceeded to get down on one knee...
H: "oh my gosh"
H: "What are you doing?" and he pulls open the ring box
D: "Holli will you marry me?"
H: "Are you serious?"
D: Yes I'm serious!!
H: YESSSS !!!!
I jumped into his arms... I gave him alot of kisses and hugs.
D: Do you want to look at the ring?
H: oh!! Yes!!!
And it was beautiful!!

The whole thing was a big shock and I feel really bad about not wanting to go in the first place, and making my self scared,I think it might have ruined the moment. I feel bad but not that bad!!! BECAUSE I AM ENGAGED!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am getting married to an amazing guy, who is my best friend!! Who loves me when I'm crazy, mad, happy, or sad!!! And I love him so So SO MUCH!!! I'm pretty lucky!!

I don't know any dates yet! Dave wants to do it before the end of the year... I'm leaning towards that side, but my mom want us to wait for 6 months!! I don't know if I can wait that long.

But I will keep everyone posted!!

Wait did I mention that I AM ENGAGED!!!!!!

Love it, love it, love it!!! I'm so happy for you; you have an awesome engagement story. Am I understanding it correctly that you honestly were completely unaware?? Because if so, that's awesome. Most people talk about getting married, go look at rings, etc. and the girl has an "idea" that something's going to happen--she just doesn't know when or where. Anyway, congrats!! Oh, and waiting's NO GOOD. Seriously, no fun at all. Darrin and I were engaged for six months and I was ready to die. Just ask Jen how much "fun" waiting is! Do what feels best for you guys. :)

Is it bad that I was totally laughing during your whole post! You are such a nerd and I love you for it!! I can totally picture you scaring the crap out of yourself and just being a spaz. Holls I am SOOOO happy for you. Seriously, I am just grining from ear to ear! It is SO much fun to be engaged! Enjoy it and all the planning because The Day goes by WAY to fast! Let me know when you have a date. Love your face!

So...even though Aliese said ask me how much waiting really wasn't horrible (granted I waiting 5 freaking I got used to it). But it sure would have been nice to not have to wait. Being married is the best and I LOVE that your engagement was I surprise. Let me know if you need ANYTHING. I love helping. I'm so excited for you!
