    Default I'm Getting Married!!!!!

    I know I haven't been on here in a while. I have been very busy. But happy to say that my betrothed, proposed on March 30th In such an awesome way!

    He is a dance caller, and every once in a while he will put on a ball. They usually have some fun theme (he has done a superhero, masquerade, 40s swing, Christmas theme) This time was a fairy/fantasy theme. He and I dressed as Link and Princess Zelda (from the Nintendo game) and he planned a fun skit with sword fighting incorporated in to one of the waltzes. I knew that I would be part of this since the theme was based around my character.

    So I was dancing with my beloved, http://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d3...psb5d20c9a.jpg

    and it stops and goes into the skit. Where he starts to go down on one knee and ask, but gets interrupted by the bad guy. *insert dramatic music* they do their sword fighting until my hero takes the sword from the enemy, then he call in his two helpers and they give him a new sword. Now there is three fighting against one. And being my hero he fights them all! (at this point I have no clue whats going on) Finally when he is backed into a corner next to me, he hands me a sword and we charge them, and take them down. Then the music calms, and he grabs my hands and we go back into the dancing. and Everyone else joined in also. As we were dancing, everybody slowly started clearing off the dance floor until it was just Logan and I dancing. I didn't really notice that everyone stopped. Then the music stopped and we stopped into the middle where he got down on his knees and asked me to marry him. I could tell he was extremely nervous!!!! http://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d3...ps3e9c29d5.jpg


    Of course I said YES!!!!! I was still in shock, lol, took me by surprise. He stood up and gave me a big hug and a bunch of balloons, glitter, leaves etc. was dropped on us. he had the drop bag planned too! I was blown away by everything he had set up. EVERYBODY there knew what was going to happen, and managed to keep it a secret from me. lol.

    Now we are in full wedding planning mode because the wedding is This May 19th! AHHHH LOL. and I get to have horses in my wedding!!!!! a friend of Logan's does carriage rides for weddings, and offered to do it for ours. I am so excited!!!!! I'm really glad there was an OT day today!

    I'm just so excited I had to share!!!

    here is my family all dressed up!

    Yay!!! Good timing, too...March 30th was the day (several years ago) that me and DH became an "official" couple, and March 31st (of last year) we got married. I think it's a lucky weekend Congrats!!!!!

    We chose the cake. :-) My fiance's sister will be making the cake for us. And I'm giving her the recipe I want her to use that tastes good. If I had the time, or space I would make my own cake. Oh how I would love to do that!!!! But living in a camper and making a cake for 300 guests....yea, I don't think so. lol

    No open bar. we don't drink. It's picnic themed anyway, lemonade and Iced tea fits the theme. :-)
