Our engagement story

So Emily tagged me to tell our engagement story. Since I said I was going to blog regularly, I better respond to "tagging". Dan and I had went and looked at rings, but I didn't know if he had the ring yet, or not. It was just a regular night during the summer in Billings, August 8th to be exact. We went to a surprise birthday party at Candace Jones' house. Then we came back to my house to watch a movie and cuddle (one of our favorite things to do back then) We went out on the trampoline to look at the stars and talk. Dan left to go home at about midnight. So I went upstairs and got ready for bed and laid down to fall asleep. About fifteen minutes later it sounded like someone was throwing rocks at my window. I ignored it because I didn't know what to think. So finally after about five minutes of rocks being thrown at my window, I look out and there is Dan! So I go downstairs in my pajamas and there is Dan with a bouquet of flowers. He told me he forgot to give me something and I gave him a hug and I really thought that was it. Then he said that he wanted me to pick out something. He pulled out three different little ring boxes. At that point I knew what was going on and got really excited. I realized that I still had my retainer in my mouth, and since I knew there would be some kissing going on later I said "wait just a second right there" Then I ran inside at took out my retainer then ran back out side. Dan opened up the three boxes. Inside one of them was a ringpop, and the other two had really bright, shiny rings! So I picked one and Dan got down on one knee and said some really sweet stuff and we were both a little teary eyed, and then he asked me to marry him! Of course I said yes! We just talked in my front yard until about three in the morning. It was really cute and definately a surprise! Okay so now I am going to tag Ashley, Chelsea, Andrea, and Lacee!
