I'm Engaged!

So this weekend was a life changing weekend for me! We went to Austin with two couples (close friends). i actually had a feeling he might propose by the end of the year (we have been together for two and half years)...but never in a million years would i have thought he would do it in front of friends!

I am so so excited...we get to start planning a wedding! i think we are going to shoot for a March/April wedding ;-) heehee.

My ring is gorgeous and the proposal was SO SWEET!!

The guys wanted to cook the girls dinner (steak and potatoes) we were excited about that!  we hung out at the pool all day and the girls werent taking showers before i didnt either.

Needless to say i sure didnt look my best when he proposed. ;-(

Dinner was served and was delicious...the guys took our dirty plates into the kitchen...came back a few minutes later...each guy carrying a plate covered by a silver platter. they said "we have a little surprise for you girls".

they placed a platter in front of each girl and we uncovered our plate. On MY plate...was written "Will you marry me!?"...i look over at Eric and he was already to one knee! I looked at the plate again and realized what was happening! And of course i said yes!! I start was very emotional lol!

So... Do YOU guys know of any awesome wedding websites? I will need all the help and tools I can get to start planning a wedding!


Best vaca ever!!
