Wednesday, May 20, 2009 comes the bride......

we're engaged!!!!!!!

that's right - Matt proposed last night, and I said YES!! And we are getting MARRIED!!!! There are not enough exclamation points in the world to explain how excited I am!!

We are getting married on September 19th in the Bountiful Temple! The 19th is a special day for us, and September 19th, 2003 was our very first kiss - way back when we were freshmen in college!

apparently this is not my real ring! The diamond is the real thing, but there were some problems with the band, so this is just a temporary one. Matt just wanted to propose on the 19th, and I'm leaving on Friday, so the real thing will be finished when I get back. I promise to post pictures as soon as we get it! So just ignore the weird band for now!
The proposal story is nothing super exciting. It was sweet, simple, and meaningful - just like I've always wanted!! So when Matt came over to my place yesterday afternoon, I was watching Garden State [remember this post! haha] - which is our favorite movie, for many reasons. I think we both see certain characteristics about ourselves and each other in the main characters. Honestly - I don't remember exactly how it happened, but it was at the end when it's playing one of our favorite songs, and we started talking. We were just sitting on my living room floor, and all the sudden, he got up on his knees and started reaching into his pocket. In my mind, I was thinking "Holy crap - is he really going to propose right now?!?!". And he DID!! He said all sorts of sweet and wonderful things, and then asked if I would marry him. And of course I said YES!!! Afterwards, he took me to dinner at my favorite place ever - Noodles & Co. On the way there, we got pulled over for Matt not wearing his seatbelt, but once we told the officer that he had just barley proposed and I flashed him my ring, he let us off with just a warning! Pretty funny that the first person to find out that we were engaged was some random police officer!! haha!

And now begins our lifetime adventure together!!!!!

[ps - have I mentioned how much i LOVE this boy?!?!]
