Like…all legitimate and stuff (or, a great love story)

Well, there’s no way to just nonchalantly toss this news around, so I just tend to blurt it out. I’m engaged! Yes, to Jason, who else?

Everyone always wants to hear the story, so here goes. Last Friday night we were snowed in with no hope of going anywhere. As we’re passing in the kitchen Jason grabs a hold of me and we started slow dancing. No, there was no music playing, and no, that’s not really unusual for Jason. Then the box comes out and the “will you marry me” and it’s all surreal and after I shake myself back to reality I think I managed a “yes” and there was much hugging and kissing and staring at the pretty sparkly ring. And then I thought, “oh, crap, now I have to plan a wedding”. So there you have it, Jason’s gonna make an honest woman out of me yet. And Dexter will have legitimate parents.

So much more to catch up on posting, but that’s the big news of the day. New job is good, weekend with old exchange student buddies was a blast, and I’m sure lots of other stuff. Maybe I’ll put some pictures up soon. There’s a couple of the ring up on Jason’s blog, but they don't really do it justice. He picked it out all by himself, I’m so proud of him. Oh, and I love him dearly, and not just because he bought me diamonds :)

the best part is that it sounds like it came out of the blue and was really a good surprise! like, it wasn't this long drawn out romantic day where you knew it was coming and the element of surprise is kind of ruined even though it was all super romantic . . . i don't know if i am making sense. mostly, i want to say: congratulations!

Yay! Congrats!!

Welcome to engaged-ville. I've been here for 9 years now :) I kinda had the same reaction - excited, but then "crap, have to plan a wedding" and kinda never got around to that planning part.
