The Proposal

As we are catching up from almost 8 months I thought I'd post what I wrote when Josh first asked me to be his wife.

From September 29th, 2007

Joshua proposed this morning :)

Joshua took me out to dinner the night before at the melting pot. Our reservation was pretty late so by time we finished dinner it was already 11:15 and when we got home it was about 12 midnight.

Josh said he wanted to ask me in our new house after dinner, but I was so tired I fell asleep in the car and went to bed before he had a chance!

The next morning he had a business meeting and I went to go work out. I called him when I finished my workout and he said he had bought us something.

When I got home I pretty much just wanted to shower and change, but he wanted to show me what he bought. As I take my shoes off he hands me Dance Dance Revelution for the Wii then tells me he wants me to sit on the stairs. I put the game down and sit down. He starts rubbing my shoulds and says "Last night isn't over yet". In my head I'm thinking, "Oh God, he wants to have sex and I'm all stinky and need to shower."He tells me to stay on the stairs and close my eyes, so now I'm wondering what the heck he is doing.

He ran up stairs and then came down again and I could feel him in front of me. He tells me that he loves me and talks about how wonderful it's been being together. Then he started talking about how we built this house together and that he wanted to be able to share the rest of our lives together. That's when he asked!

And out of my mouth...."Really?"

Then I opened my eyes and saw my ring. I got a little teary eyed :p And of course I said yes.

I love the ring. He picked it out all on his own, and it's the perfect ring for me. It's an ideal cut pear diamond set in platinum. It sparkles so much!

After Josh proposed (and I finially showered!) we went to my parent's house. They were so happy! My mom started screaming and then crying. My brother Rusty came flying down stairs thinking that something awful had happened. Then my sister and I went up stairs to wake my dad up, she she had my hand 2 inches from his face. At first he didn't understand what was going on. Then the look of shock was priceless.

Of course we called most of our family while we were there and everyone is so excited. After my house we went to Josh's mom's place and visited her for a while. And then we went over to his Dad's and step mom's place and told them. It was so busy!

Today we have church and we are going to try to set up an appointment so we can pick a wedding date. We are thinking next fall... but we'll see what's available! You have no idea how excited I am!
