Oh and Hi....since I haven't blogged in oh, FOR-EV-ER!
So...you ready for the big, huge, awesome news??
I. AM. ENGAGED.
Yep, My Honey finally popped that long awaited question that I had pretty much decided my ears would never hear!
Here's the story.
We were on our way to a family reunion in the Texas Hill Country, which just happens to be our favorite part of Texas! My Honey had suggested that we take our own car and take the longer, scenic route. I agreed, as we always like taking back roads because you just get to see so much more of the beautiful state of Texas! We had reached the Guadalupe River and had gone over several crossings when he suggested that we stop off at one and stretch our legs and see if we found any cool rocks. Again, I wasn't suspicious in the least because he likes to get a cool rock everywhere we go and we had been on the road for hours. So he pulls off at a crossing and there's this beautiful water fall just under the bridge. We climb down there and all I can think is "I'm going to fall, this is much steeper than it looked and SNAKES, there are probably snakes everywhere around us and why is there grass touching my leg? SNAKES!" I'm terrified of snakes, if you can't tell.
Could the setting be more perfect?
Pretty sure there are 10000 snakes around here!
We finally got to a more open area and I was calming down about the tall grass and mounds of snakes that were likely all around us when I noticed My Honey was acting kind of nervous. Weird! I really started getting suspicious when he took a "self pic" with me and smiled! He NEVER does that! It usually takes 5 times before I can get him to be serious!
Serious picture on the first try!
Something must be up!
Then he started back toward the car and I was more than ready to get out of that "snake infested" area! Then he stops and says "WHAT'S THAT?" and I freak out because I just knew it was a snake! I screamed and jumped and just freaked out in general. When I turned around My Honey was on one knee. Then I REALLY freaked out!!!! The moment that I had dreamt about for 3 years was finally happening! It was the single happiest moment of my life! He said "I'm really nervous but 'Will you marry me'"? He said that he wished he had taken a picture so that he could show everyone the look on my face. He said it was perfect. Of course, I was in shock and said nothing so he finally said "well, will you?" That's when I snapped out of my haze and screamed "YES! Yes, I will marry you!" and then jumped into his arms and then he said "well, here try it on!" haha! I said "no, you put it on me!" and it fit PERFECTLY! It was the best moment and it was just he and I and I wouldn't have it any other way. I get to marry my best friend, my soul mate, the love of my life! I still have to pinch myself to make sure I'm not dreaming!
I couldn't have picked out a better ring!
Another view of my PERFECT ring!
ha! Our first "toast" as a married couple!
You know I had to get the ring in there!
We went to dinner that night and my SIL and cousin/MOH surprised me with a "bride" tank and they had on their "bridesmaid" tanks!
It was the perfect end to the perfect day!
Of course, since I've been dreaming about getting married to this wonderful man for 3 years, you KNOW I have the wedding pretty much planned out! How can you not with Pinterest? (follow me!) I can't wait to share all of our the details with ya'll!! We have LOTS of DIY things planned and I will be sharing each project on my blog! Here are 2 teasers! Can you guess what we're going to do with them?

And you know, I'm always on some new diet/fitness kick and I AM doing something right now but I am convinced that the minute I blog about it I jinx myself...so I will talk about it....but I'm saving it for 15-20 lbs from now!
So for now....as the chalkboard in my kitchen says....
Okay, okay...and one more picture of my BE-AUTIFUL ring!
Enjoy...The Curvy Life!
