I'm Engaged!!!

So...I have this wonderful man in my life and he is horrible about keeping secrets! ;) It is very funny...We had already talked about getting married and picked a ring, but I had no idea when he was going to give me the ring! It was making me a little crazy because I didn't know when to expect the official proposal. Well, he slipped up! He spilled that he would have to for sure call his parents again on Saturday..."Saturday?" I ask...He blew it! I was safe from the unsureness until Saturday. I tried not prying, but he also told me something about Olive Garden, which is my favorite restaurant and where we bagan our first date. I thought it would not happen until Saturday night.

So, Friday Ison left to go to a YSA Regional Campout while I stayed here. I was glad I didn't go because I was so tired! The whole evening all I could really think about was that I wanted Ison to be here with me...I missed him!

Saturday morning I got up and helped a little at my parents house with their swamp cooler. Then home I went to shower and get ready to go to the Botanical Gardens with my parents and roommate. When we got there, Daisy asked for my camera, which I gave to her. We walked through just a couple of sections when we got to this one part where couples could have their weddings. There were a lot of white folding chairs set up and an area that was risen for the ceremony to take place. Daisy told me to go pose for Ison, so I got up there feeling silly and didn't know what to do. That's when I heard Ison and saw him coming up to me...WOW! I was completely surprised!!! You can see for yourself what happened here:

I know the sound isn't very good, but you can tell what happened...he asked me to marry him and I said yes! That only takes up a little of the video...He was shaking so bad! I had no idea that he was going to be at the gardens! Of course I had a little fantasy in my head about how it would be great if he showed up and proposed, but I never thought that it would happen! :) I couldn't stop smiling all day yesterday!!!

So, there you have it...I'm getting married!!! And it will be on September 27, 2008 at 10:00am at the Albuquerque, NM Temple!!! Yay!
