the proposal

Since a few of you asked me, I decided I would tell you guys how Cade proposed to me :)

Last night after I finished work, and Cade got home from school, we were sitting on the couch eating dinner and watching American Idol. When one of the commercials came on, he started playing with my hand, and he took off my promise ring. He gave me that ring about 3 years ago, and I've been wearing it since. "Hey, how about you practice proposing to me!!" I told him. I got up off the couch and pointed to the floor. "Here, kneel right here and I'll pretend to be surprised!!" He laughed at me and said, "Okay, go in the bedroom and turn off the light and shut the door."

I went in the room and did as he said. I could hear him rummaging around for something out in the other room. "Close your eyes, okay?" he said from the other side of the door. "You're going to try to scare me or something... stop it!" I yelled at him, "but I'm closing my eyes!"

Then he came in, and I could feel him put a ring on my finger. I opened my eyes and he was kneeling down on one knee, and he said "Will you marry me?" and I told him "Yes, yes of course!" Then I looked at my hand and realized that he didn't put my promise ring back on, but it was an engagement ring.

I got this stupid goofy smile on my face and I thought it must be some kind of joke, but he promised me it was serious. I started crying, and I was really happy.

And that's how it happened :)
