Some Engagements

So I thought I might as well put some engagements on my blog, even though those who read this have probably already seen them on Mel's facebook. I just love them!

I am so excited to marry him in 2 months!

I'm engaged!

So I am now officially engaged to Nate Fox!
So here's the story: We have been planning all week to go up the canyon on Thursday (May 5). I was pretty sure that was where he was going to propose (for those who don't know, we have been unofficially engaged for about three weeks - we had basically everything planned except the actual engagement!) but I didn't say anything. So the day finally came and we made preparations to go. We went and bought some starbursts and flavored tootsie rolls to roast. On our very first date, I taught him the correct way to roast starbursts so that is why he chose to do that on this day as well. Anyway, we finally headed up.

When we got to Vivian park, we stopped at the first parking lot. We went to the pond area and took some pictures. Most of them didn't turn out so well, but a few did :) Then we went back to the car and headed farther up the canyon. When we got to the perfect (aka scoped out beforehand) spot, we got all the stuff out of the car and started walking. Because I knew he had a plan, I didn't ask him where we were going. After a couple minutes, we walked up to a very nice fire. It had a blanket laid next to it with our names on a card on top (of the blanket, not the fire).

We sat down and got everything set up. He took out his laptop and started playing some music. It wasn't just any music, but specific songs that have meant something to us in our relationship. Some Brad Paisley songs (like Then and She's Everything) because I love Brad Paisley and we are going to see him live at the Stadium of Fire in July. Then A Bushel and a Peck by Doris Day because we sing that to each other all the time. And then Lullaby (Goodnight My Angel) by Billy Joel because he sang that to me one time and it is a great song. I think it was during the last one that he pulled out the ring and asked me if I would marry him! Even though I knew it was coming, I felt a rush of very happy emotion. Then I said yes of course!
Hooray for finally being engaged!
I love him!
Then we came back to my place. We had bought Martinelli's to have while we were up the canyon, but we forgot. So we had some at my place while we watched LOST. Maybe not everyone's version of a romantic end to the evening, but it was just perfect for us :)
And here is the ring. I love it! We picked it out together a couple of weeks ago. It is just perfect because it is simple yet it is very unique. Also, the diamonds are so beautiful! Light dances on them. I love it!

I am just so happy how everything has worked out. I just love Nate and I am very excited about our eternity together :)

Also, we are getting married August 5th in the Mount Timpanogus Temple.
