on getting married and miracles…

that’s right. i’m engaged. i’m getting married. i’m super duper excited!!!! yay!!!!

we were home, at my home, on Thursday which is when he talked to my parents. which i still think is super cool. and then friday, we were watching the movie Miracle, you know, the hockey one about the Olympics and stuff and then i went to the bathroom because i had to pee and i came back out and he was acting… weird. like, i don’t know, just weird. he was looking for the remote to the DVD player which was about 18″ away from me, so i grabbed it and went to sit back down on the couch and he’s like ‘don’t sit down!’ and i was like ‘WHAT?!’ and then he grabbed the remote from my hand and threw it on the couch and i turned to follow the remote with my eyes and when i turned back to look at him, i could see him descending. like… onto his knee. and i was like… “what?!?” because we said we were going to wait until december and it’s NOT DECEMBER YET!!! so then he looks up at me with the most adorable, serious expression and says “cari, i love you. blah blah blah blah blah blah. will you marry me?” (sorry, i don’t remember ANYTHING he said in the middle) and i was like… what am i supposed to say? I DON’T KNOW HOW TO ANSWER THIS QUESTION!!! and then the word ‘yes’ popped into my head but it seemed like such an insignificant little word to answer such a LARGE question and finally i squeaked out a yes and then he started to put the ring on my finger but the promise ring was still there, so it was kind of an awkward little fumble thing where he handed it to me and i took off the other ring and put that one on and then i squealed and hugged him and oh man it was awesome.

and miracle is a really good movie too. i liked it.

    WOAH awesomeness!

    “Congrats” doesn’t even stack up to this — you my dear were due for something good.

    oh girl. yay! i’ve grown to like him, and all that i know of him is what he posts in the comments on your blog and the way that you talk about him like you’re totally head over heels for him. i’m super excited for you both, and just read this post about marriage that will maybe help you out a bit (http://homewiththeboys.blogspot.com/2009/11/what-i-would-says-got-hold-of-blog.html). when is the wedding?

    “it’s not even december yet!” well he was only a couple of days away. πŸ™‚

    We left to walk the dogs to allow for the opportunity after our discussion the night before. We were hoping that the timing would work while we were out of the house. Sneaky old people! πŸ˜€
