It happened last night! I am officially engaged! I am so freakin excited right now, and I haven't stopped smiling since. Here is how it happened:

Rick told me yesterday afternoon he wanted to take me out for a special last dinner before my fasting begins. It was a really nice day out, so he said why don't we go down to the beach. When we got there he pulled up to a lighthouse, and I was like what the hell are we doing?? He pointed and said we are having dinner up there! So we climbed ALL the way up to the top, and once there, there was table set for the 2 of us, and nice romantic music playing. We ordered an appetizer and our entree and it was delicious. When we were done with those we decided to climb outside on the deck that surrounds the top of the lighthouse to watch the sunset. We were hugging, and he asked me if I loved him, I of course said yes, he then asked how much, I said lots, and then he said do you love me enough to marry me?? I looked at him and he was down on 1 knee holding the ring. I said oh my god are you kidding me??? Started to cry, then said YES! We then climbed back inside and enjoyed a brownie sundae and champagne. It was more then I could have even imagined!

The thing that means the most to me, is that he proposed before surgery. This to me shows that he loves me no matter what....fat or skinny. I am so grateful to have him in my life, and for the support he has given me through all of this. I can not stop smiling today, and I don't ever want this feeling to end.

As for wedding details, those obviously still need to be worked out. This is what the idea is as of right now. We will have a destination wedding in Jamaica probably in 2011. Only our parents and his sisters will attend this. When we get back we will have an at home reception for everyone to attend. That's all I have for now, hope everyone has a fantastic day!!
