Zac and I are engaged! (took him long enough ;D). Some of you might know that this has been in the works for awhile now. I mean, we might have already taken engagement pictures, have our announcements done, the date set, apartment and... I might already have my dress. But there is a ring on my finger and we can now talk about it out loud (right dad?). I know, you are all thinking... what does the ring look like? How did he do it? Did you cry? Did he cry? How did I respond? Was it romantic? Well... if you are thinking these questions.... you really don't know either of us at all.

It occurred at 3 a.m. (need I say more?) We had an interesting night. We went over to my aunt and uncle's house for a birthday party. We were chaperones and Zac did his mannly duty...ignored everyone but the birthday girl, ate the food and watched the movie..... After the party we went to see Abduction. I went in with NO EXPECTATIONS at all. Taylor Lautner does not impress me one bit. But with NO EXPECTATION I really enjoyed the movie. I don't know what all the fuss is about... he's just not cute AT ALL.Up close... just another little boy who needs to grow up.
After the movie we had a 20 minute drive to my house. We had a deep conversation that brought up...things.... but it ended fine. Eventually Zac decided he was too tired to stay any longer so I walked him out (like a good gf). I really can't explain the mood. It was a somber, full of bursts of love, moment saying good bye that night (by bursts of love I don't mean kissing Mom, just warm fuzzy feelings). Anyways, Zac was fiddling with his wallet, I had the thought... 'hmmm what is he doing (ring?)?" But didn't think he would at that moment after our evening together. But he did! Got done on his knee, gave a sweet, simple 'speech' and asked! It was perfect!
Looking back... I wish I had responded with something clever like, 'sure' or 'i'll get back to you' or 'let me think about it and text you my answer.' but I didn't. I just shook my head and smiled. I love my ring! It is my wedding band for right now, but I love it just as much as I will my engagement ring.

drum roll please.....
We will be getting married December 17, 2011 at 11 a.m in the Seattle Temple. We are SUPER excited.

Tomorrow is Zac's birthday! Whoop Whoop. The big 22... old man. It has been 2 years since we have spent our birthdays together.
Not too brag, but I feel like I did a good job on presents this year. No more random packages and pictures babe, sorry. I'll save that for Christmas... when we have no money =D So excited!

I love you Zachary. You are P.E.R.F.E.C.T. for me. I hate that I can't stay mad at you and that you make me laugh when I really don't want to. Here is a poem for you on your special day (just made it up ya'll, on the spot):

Buttface, you drive me crazy
Boi you make me mad
Zac you make me smile
Like no one else can.
hahhahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.. It rhymes if you say it in your head

I Love you Boi! I hope today is better than 'just another day'
Happy Birthday!
