I'm starting to think that the 30 day challenge won't be hard with all these topics per day floating around Blogger! It's pretty awesome & makes it a bit easier! =)
Thousand Word Thursday is supposed to post a picture that is worth a thousand words. And this one is mine...
This was about 3 minutes after I got engaged (03.15.08). There is so much emotion going on inside of me right here. I'm EXTREMELY HAPPY, Super Excited, VERY SURPRISED & just a TAD embarrassed!! Not to mention madly in love...put all that together... & you get this smile. Am I blushing? Because i DEFINITELY felt my face get hot!!
Brad proposed in a restaurant! He & his sister & my sister went ring shopping that day while i was at work. He called me right before i got off to see if i wanted to go eat at Mike Anderson's (our favorite!) & i said sure. I thought it a little strange that he wanted to fit a dinner in between work & theatre (i had a show that night), but i was certainly okay with it. He'd recently let it slip that he'd asked my dad for my hand in marriage, which shocked me & made me REALLY excited. But i still had NO CLUE he'd planned to meet our sisters, go ring shopping & ask me that night. i really figured it was MONTHS away.
But after our dinner, he slid the ring over to me & asked me to marry him. I was shocked & embarrassed - i wouldn't even let him get down on his knee & i covered the ring with my hand when the waitress came to bring the check!! No one had any clue what was going on! HA! I know it's hard to understand how someone who sings and acts before hundreds can get shy in a restaurant, but that's just how i am! I don't like all eyes on me & so i was EXTREMELY happy but hoping to keep it quiet. Brad totally understands this (he just had to go ahead & ask me as soon as he got the ring!!), but then our [loud crazy outgoing locquacious] sisters came bounding in the restaurant after he did it (i didn't know they were waiting at the bar in the restaurant until after he proposed), so a LITTLE spotlight got on us after all. They made us reinact the proposal, which we did outside (i was too embarrassed to do it inside!) HAHA!
So that is defintely my picture worth a thousand words!
