I'm engaged!!!!

Alex and I got engaged on December 28th, my 23rd birthday. He crashed at my house the night before, and asked my dad for his permission to marry me the next morning! I had no idea that Alex was going to propose, yet it was funny that I was talking about marriage and proposals at work earlier that day. I got off of work at 1pm, got all dressed up at Alex's house...and we headed out to Uptown. We got Chinese food, and then headed to Uncommon Ground for chai tea and mochas.

...Alex and I originally met at Uncommon grounds, in July 2004 (almost a year and a 1/2 ago). I was hanging out w/ Dave, and Alex was chilling with R!k. We all met up to go to Tabu, and from that point on I just felt this connection to Alex. He was so friendly and I felt relaxed around him immediately. He was more polite and generous than any other guy I'd met. "The guys" and I hung out at a later date at O'Garas, Alex gave me his phone #, and the rest is history...

...Anyways...back to the present. Alex and I stepped into Uncommon, and I smiled and said "Yay! This is where we first met!". Alex reached in his pocket and said, "Yep...and I have one more little present for you." He got down one knee and asked me to marry him. The barista had stepped out from the back to take out order...saw Alex go down on one knee...let out a little gasp...turned out and walked right back to where she was hiding before. I was in shock! I didn't even look at the ring right away...I just looked at Alex, grinning from ear to ear, and exclaimed, "OHMYGOSH ARE YOU SERIOUS?!?!" about three times. I then said "Yes, of course!" and hugged him. Alex grabbed my hand and slid the ring on my finger. We ordered our coffee, with me still in complete shock. Eventually I came to terms with the glorious reality of the situation, and have been on Cloud 9 ever since.

...I'll post pic of the ring a lil bit later!!
