It has been the busiest, craziest, and happiest 4 days of my life. Truly.

I originally planned on talking about Atlanta in my next post, but there is a little bit bigger news coming your way.

Get ready for it….

Yes, I did!

He pulled it off flawlessly. I had absolutely no idea it was coming. Even my sister and mom kept the secret for 2 weeks without dropping even a little hint. That’s an amazing feat in itself, believe me.

THE STORY: We had all planned a get together at my oldest brother’s to shoot guns and eat and have a few beers (after the guns, of course). People from work were coming. Friends were coming. Greg’s brother and wife and kids were coming. So he apparently saw it as the perfect time to pop the question.

We had just finished shooting the guns in the hot sun. We were all hot and hungry so we went back to the house. Everyone hung out before we lined up for food. Greg was last in line, and he came over to our table (where his brother Grant, Grant’s wife Shannon, Mandy, Darcy, and my mom had already sat down to eat. He walked up with his plate. Since I was there first, my wheelchair was halfway blocking his way to sit (weird tables). He goes “Could you back up a little?” So I did. He says “No, a little more.” So I did. He says again “No, back up.” Now, I was back plenty so that he could slide in to the table. I was so confused. Why did he need so much room?

Then he started digging in his pocket and crouched down. I flipped. I don’t know how many times I said “Oh my God!” but it was more than once. I laughed and cried and was a little panicked from all of it. Mandy and Darcy were taking pics and recording it. Everyone else was sort of ooh-ing and aww-ing. I think so anyway. I don’t really remember what anyone else was doing because I was trying to keep myself from completely losing it. It was emotional. It was crazy. It was so perfect.

I am so glad that he kept it a secret. I’m glad I didn’t have any inkling about when, where, etc. He did a great job of making it memorable and our type of romantic and real. He picked a perfect ring. I love him like crazy. And he is mine!

(I’ll get on that Atlanta post soon when I can breathe again.)
