The Engagement!

Once upon a time, I got engaged. It was on December 23, 2012 to be exact. What's that? You want to hear how?? Oh talked me into it! Here is the story:

Shane had told me earlier in the month that we had a family dinner to go to on the 23rd. The day of the "family dinner" Shane's brother Charlie came in to town for Christmas and I was so excited to spend the whole day with him catching up on everything! We spent the morning, and most the afternoon, at Starbucks talking about anything and everything. After that we went back to the house and I started getting ready for the family dinner! Shane had specifically told me to get really dressed up because everyone was planning on having a DSN (dress sexy night). I was so excited and even put awesome eyeliner on! (Bad idea in the end)

This is Charlie and me after I had gotten all ready and was feelin HOT!
We jumped in the car and headed for the place we were having dinner. After Charlie drove around for what felt like FOREVER.....we pulled into this empty place where there were NO cars....I was so confused! Then Charlie says to me, "I have a confession to make. You need to get out of the car right now." After he said that and I looked over that the path way made in the snow I had an idea of what was going on.

As I got out of the car I saw a giant white arrow pointing to the pathway cleared in the snow. Above this pathway was a giant sign that read "Memory Lane". It literally had Shane's creativity written all over it. It was right then that I knew this was all going down. I was so nervous, excited, scared, excited, more nervous, and then really excited!

He made this whole sign himself!
As I walked up to the pathway there was an envelope hanging. I can't remember exactly what it said and for some reason we can't find the letter! But it said something along the lines of "You look gorgeous tonight. I can't wait to see you. Your whole life is about to change so take your time walking down this memory lane I have created for you. I love you." I looked down the path and there were so many pictures hanging down. There were mason jars with candles inside of them lighting the path where balloons hung from Shepard's hooks lining the path.

I was literally freaking out! I couldn't believe this was ACTUALLY happening!! My smile was seriously painted on my face. This memory lane was AMAZING and I was sure to take my time taking it all in.

After my wonderful walk down memory lane I came to another don't judge me but for the life of me I can NOT remember what it even said. My nerves were so out of control I can't even explain what was going on! I was excited and nervous and I honestly felt like I was in a movie!
All I can remember is that at the end of the letter it said to wait for him right there. As I waited the song "Here Comes Your Man" by Meaghan Smith came on and out walked Shane. I literally froze!! I was so shocked that all of this as happening and how perfect my almost fiance is! So Shane made his way up to me, and he will kill me for saying this buuuuut....he was choked up!! He got emotional people!! This is huge. Honestly, it sorta freaked me out because I have never seen him get emotional, especially from happiness. He told me how beautiful I looked and that I mean the world to him. He told me I was supposed to be the one crying and all emotional and not him. He then went into telling me that like this memory lane he wanted to keep creating many more memories with him. He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him!!! Of course I said yes!

But WAIT!! That wasn't all....after I said yes, Shane stood up and pulled out another box. He said he had another surprise for me....He handed me another box! I opened it up and inside was an old key...

THAT'S RIGHT! I GOT A VW BUG!!! She is a 1967...with 65 fenders :) I am the luckiest girl in the whole entire world! Now we have the bus and the bug. I am in heaven! Wanna know the 2nd best part?? Shane got all of my family to come down so they could be there! It was the best surprise I have ever had! We were able to have both of our families be a part of our engagement. After he proposed and we started walking towards the bug I noticed my Mom, Dad, Kjandyce, Braxton and Ashley, and even my GRANDPARENTS!!! I am extremely close with my grandparents so I about died when I saw that they were there! day of my life.

So there it is! My engagement story! I'm sorry it took me so long to finally blog about it. Since then there have been a few family things going on and I have to admit I slightly lost the motivation to blog about it. Buuuut here I am! I promise I won't have such a loooooong amount of time between posts ever again!!
