4 Years to Forever

Yesterday was mine and the boy's 4 year anniversary. We had made a few basic plans for the night, but weren't planning on anything too crazy. We stayed at the house and watched LSU beat Ole Miss in their football game and then headed out to dinner.

We had dinner at Albasha's which is where we had our first date, and both ordered our regular meals. I thought we should exchange presents at the table so I set the boy's wrapped ipod nano on the table, but he wasn't quite ready to trades the nano, still wrapped, went back in the purse.

Outside the restaurant the was a wooden bench we walked over to, my mind is kind of a blur and I'm not completely sure what happened, but all of a sudden there was a ring and the boy was down on one knee. I can't even really remember what he said, and all I remember saying is, "Are you serious?" because I really and truly wasn't expecting this at all. He had made sure to convince me it wasn't happening anytime in the next year or so, and I was completely convinced. I'm still in somewhat disbelief.

But it did actually happen, and the boy even agree to take one of those posed, "Look at my ring! We're engaged!" pictures once we got back to the house!
Engaged!
Posting will probably be a little lite this week except for maybe a book or movie review or both. So this engaged couple is wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!
