I assumed it had to be a safe person if they were going to have a dozen roses in their hand, so I opened the door. To my surprise, Jason was standing there holding a dozen roses in one hand, and the other hand behind his back. I immediately asked him what he was doing here because we had already decided that this would be our "off" weekend where he would stay in Rogers, since he had just stayed the last week in Texas with us for his vacation. He stepped in the doorway and gave me the roses, then he started telling me how much he loved me and Brayden. I begun my state of shock as he continued to speak. Not sure exactly what all he said because I was so distracted at the fact he was getting down on one knee and brought his hand from behind his back and was holding a small box. He opened the box and I saw a bright SHINY ring. I was anticipating what he was about to say, so I started to say "are you serious?!?" He tried to continue his "prepared" speech, but I was in such shock, I didn't quite hear everything he was saying, but I did hear the magic words that I have been dying to hear for the last several months, "Christie, will you marry me?" After I said, "are you serious?!?!" about 100 more times and he kept reproposing to me, I finally said YES!!!!!!!!!! And he put the ring on my finger...
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!!!!
We were so excited, we held each other super tight as Brayden cheered us on. After Brayden realized what had just happened his first reaction was "Let's get this wedding started!!"
So we are now in the process of planning a wedding. Before we set a date, we ideally would like for Jason to find a job in the area and get him moved down here. If you have any budget friendly wedding advice, we're all ears. :) Ideally, our dream wedding would entail a beachside ceremony, but we are looking at several others options. Stay tuned for updates. :)
