I'm sorry this post is coming so late but it's been a crazy past couple of weeks and I haven't had time to post about the engagement yet! But for anyone interested in our cheesy romantic proposal...here it is.
As far as some background information, I was informed that we would be going ring shopping in a few days and I was pretty sure that the proposal would happen on my birthday (May 22nd).
So one week before my birthday Jeffery took me down to my favorite Sushi restaurant for a weekend date. Everything was totally ordinary...he wasn't acting nervous at all so I had no clue what was going on. We ordered our miso and sushi and when they brought out our food the sushi was on a gigantic red plate and shaped into a heart. It was soo pretty I just said, "oooh sweetie look how pretty that is..." And then like an idiot I see this weird box sitting on top of the sushi and I was so confused! So I picked it up and then it hit me. My first thought was "oh man, if this is earrings or a necklace I'm going to be soo ticked!!" Haha. So I nervously open it and there is a little heart shaped piece of paper in it that says,
"This ring box is empty, as you can see. If you want to know why, ask Jeffery!"
So I turned to look at him and he pulled out the ring and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him! It was so romantic. I said yes of course and then they brought out a huge bouquet of long stem roses and the whole thing was just perfect! I was SO surprised...well, that's even an understatement! I have the sweetest finance in the whole world! And he picked the ring out completely alone (which you would think would be scary!) But he picked the most GORGEOUS ring on the planet! It's soooo perfect and I love it!
So there it is...our love saga! Our date is August 15th in the Salt Lake Temple!
I LOVE love!!

My Spanish Sistas

Liz, Laur, Sarah, Alex, Kendal

With Kendal's looming wedding day I had to come to term with the facts ... our 5-some is done forever. But it did cause me to reminisce on the good ole' days traveling the world with Team-A.

Camel riding in our Kandurum dresses in Morocco

Our many "hostel" nights with 5 in a bed..Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Style

Siestas in Porto

"Team Africa" Family photo shoot...complete with the dog

Let's face it...we were "kind of a big deal"

I love you guys! And don't forget,"I'm not like a regular mom, I'm a cool mom"
