I know I know, I have not given ANY details as to how this whole thing happened!!! I figured it is time that I tell you;-)
Well Richard and I went ring shopping on a Thursday (don't ask me the date I am very sentimental and have already forgotten) and I found the ring RIGHT AWAY! Lets be honest, it wasn't that hard because I have liked the same ring since I was 12. I definitely got a thicker band and a bigger diamond than originally planned, but I am not going to complain. We got sweet hookups cause his cousin WORKS at the store and we got the rings at their cost (over 50% off).
So Friday Richard asks me if I want to go to Salt Lake for dinner. I told him that would be great and he told me that he would pick me up like at 6. SO we get to Salt Lake and he is acting kind of funny. He asks me where I want to eat and I said "I don't know lets just drive around and find somewhere and then park." Well he thought it would be better to park and then find somewhere. I was just like okay whatever it doesn't really matter. So we park at the Joseph Smith Memorial Building. We get out and walk up to the building and wander around for a bit. He asks me if I wanted to walk around Temple Square. I of course agreed and we began our journey! So we are walking around the temple and he is walking REALLY fast and eyeballing every bench or private spot. I figured he was going to propose and was just mustering up the courage. Well sure enough he did. He asked me and I said 'YES' and then he said ....Okay lets change I have reservations at the Roof. That DEFINITELY surprised me. I definitely caught on he was going to propose that night, but I didn't catch on that he had reservations somewhere.
Earlier that day he had gone to my apartment and picked out clothes for me to wear to dinner. Luckily I already had on a shirt and shoes that matched the black pants he brought. So there you have it...my engagement story!
