    I never posted our engagement story (from over a year ago). But here it is. Not really what I had imagined but its still OUR story.

    My fiance randomly decided to go on a picnic in October when the weather is turning cold in Colorado (where we were living). All that day he was after me to hurry home so we could go. Immediately upon walking in the door he says to me, "Why is your hair up?!". I told him that she didn't have time that morning to take a shower. He then told me that I had ruined the picnic and that's when I knew something was up. He had EVERYTHING ready for the picnic and was just sitting there waiting for me (he's usually not so helpful).

    It was 45F (7C) that day. We ended up driving about an hour up to Estes Park, Colorado and sat at a picnic area by lake Estes. On the way up there he was dancing retardedly in the car and said "if you're lucky you'll get to see me dance like this for the rest of your life". Then he asked me "for future reference, when I propose do I have to be down on a knee?" Obviously he's not good at hiding things and this is the point where I start to feel sick (with anticipation). I wrapped myself in a blanket and was wearing flip flops (cause he wouldn't let me take two minutes to change my shoes) while he was building a make shift fire to cook chip dip on. It was freezing and in Kevin's words - the picnic didn't go as he had planned. He told me that he had something to make up for it though. We drove back to our house and Kevin gets the gas fireplace going (which Katie had been asking for). He made me hide in the kitchen while he did this but I could hear what was going on. So we sat by the fire sipping wine in the dark. I could tell he was a little on edge. At one point I commented that I loved him - his response was "I hope so...". He then pulled out the ring box (which I had seen him move from his jacket pocket to his jean pocket) and asked me if I knew was it was. In shock, I said no. He opened it and asked me to marry him. After MUCH crying, I said yes.

    So I'd NEVER tell him this but the only thing that would have made it better for me was if we'd gone to the lake I grew up on instead of in the mountains. Oh well, still memorable!

        Yup, totally agree. Especially since I had told him numerous times that I wanted it to be a total surprise and that it needed to be unique. Haha.

              Bah! I just noticed I referred to myself in the third person. I'm retarded. I copied the story from our website since I had written it immediately and then just edited it to be in first person but I guess I missed a spot. lol oops!

                What a cute story! I love how nervous he was and how he just couldn't keep the secret to himself. He did a great job! Congrats.
