The Story, Among Other Things

Okay, so here's how it went down:

I got to sleep in, because I never get to anymore. Day started normal. We went to the store so I could do grocery shopping. After that we came back to my campus to watch Phantom of the Opera (one of my favs!!!) and played games and downed a whole box of Cheese-Its. One of those awesome spending-time-together days. Then we went to a restaurant called "Colton's" (steaks, country feel. I love it) and ordered nothing but deep-fried appetizers (cheese sticks, fried mushrooms, etc.)! So fun. And delicious. Then we returned to campus (it is now about 6:00 PM, night time) and he wants to walk around. I'm like "No it's cold" but he really wanted to so we did. We got to the middle of the courtyard under all the trees under the pretty moon and stars and the nice clear cold night, and he sang me our song: "Would you Go With Me" -Josh Turner. Then he says "I was going to wait a couple more hours, but..." and he turns me to him and he goes down on one knee and I start freaking out (in a good way)!!!!

He had even planned out my ring ceremony with my club before hand! It was announced Friday, and I found out it was mine when he proposed! Ring ceremony is this: you tell absolutely no one that you're engaged (other than family of course) except your club pres/sponsor. They announce a "ring ceremony" at such and such time/day/etc. Everyone comes and the president puts the ring on a candle. The candle is lit, and we pass it around singing our club hymn until the bride (i.e.-me) decides to finally blow the candle out (I let it go around twice hehehe). Then they all pick you up and throw you into a fountain. And the beaux threw him in too!

I'm knitting my veil, and hoping it turns out good. My first lace project. Any advice?


  1. Wow, that's so cool! Congrats, congrats, congrats! :) I'm sure the veil will be beautiful, do you have a pattern or are you winging it?

  2. I have the book "Wedding Knits" by Suss Cousins. It's the Waterfall Veil pattern from there!
