Well this weekend on the 22nd of August 2008 I asked Lisa Gunnell to marry me and she just happened to say yes! Since I'm sure that everyone is wondering how it went down...Here ya Go!
I did it up at Bear Lake on the Beach, and for the first time in my life I pulled off a surprise and she had NO idea it was coming! We went on a walk by the water and while we were walking I had my sister and her sister come down and lay roses on the beach so we’d find them on the way back. On each rose was a reason that I loved her...her smile....the fact that she tries to let me beat her at ping pong, but i still can't...she's so understanding and loving...etc.. At the first rose she looked at me and asked when I’d had the time to do this! It was pitch black and we had a flashlight, so she turned off the flashlight cuz she thought it was the only one and I was just being cute. Well we walked 10 more feet and there was another one. She said that she figured out what was going on about the 5th rose…and started crying. Well we got to the 12th rose and she picked it up and said ‘What no cute saying?!’ and I looked at her and said ‘Nope, this one is a verbal note!’ I told her that this week had been everything I had imagined it would be in regards to getting engaged, full of excitement and good anxiety, and that I loved her with all my heart and got down on one knee and asked if she’d marry me! She was crying, but said yes and then we just stood there and hugged for a while. She wouldn’t let go so I finally had to ask " Do you mind if I put on the ring!? " and then she hugged me again for a while and I had to say again...‘umm I think that there are people up at the cabin who are anxious to know your answer’ It’s been a lot of fun and we're super excited.
Congratulations again! Have you all decided on a date, or a time frame yet? We'll be anxious to meet her at Christmas time.
November 10th-14th sometime...we're not positive yet...just depends on times and places etc...
AAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!! So exciting!! Congratulations! I can't wait to meet her! You did such a great job with the proposal! Way to go!
