I'm getting married!

So despite my last two weeks of bad luck with a car accident among other things, I feel like the luckiest woman because my best friend in the world asked me to marry him :) He made me work for the ring though lol. He sent me a text saying "Dinner at 8, get dressed, grab a snack and look in the picnic basket to find me." Well I was on the phone with my dad when I got it and said, "Dad, I gotta go find Brian." He asked if we were playing hide and seek or something :) I didn’t know until later that Brian had called him the night before to ask for his blessing so dad definitely played it cool and didn’t let on that he knew what was up.

Well after hanging up with Dad, I got more excited than before our first date...ran to the picnic basket and found a crossword puzzle inside. It had clues about our first date, some fav. restaurants and some really really random what’s the abbreviation for Texas Super Chili Taco. HUH?! I was too busy trying to figure out if it really existed to realize he just wanted me to put tsct in the box because he couldn’t think of anything else haha!

Once I finally figured out the puzzle and solved it, I found that he was at the Founders Inn waiting for me. And once I got there he was out back with a dozen roses (looking quite handsome in his suit I have to say) and asked me to marry him. He jokes that it took a while to convince me...a lot of begging and pleading but actually...I started saying yes before he even got the question out. Lucky for me, he went ahead and got on one knee and asked, despite me jumping the gun a bit.
