I knew the engagement was getting close. We had just met with the stake president and he said that the temple D should be final in 1 to 3 weeks. (Keep your fingers crossed.) I also told Remii to give me a weeks notice so that I could get my nails done... haha
So last night Remii told me we had an errand to run at 10 in the morning. I told him it was my favorite class at the gym and he said we HAD to go to this appointment. And I have had high anxiety wondering when the engagement was going to happen so I was a little suspicious about this errand. Last Saturday we went to the mall and I was sweating the whole time worried I was going to get flash mobbed. So that night when I went to bed I couldn't sleep. 3 am rolled around and Ben came into my room complaining of a terrible toothache. Got him some Tylenol and sent him back to bed. Finally fall to sleep at about 4. My muchly hated alarm goes off at 7 am. Every morning I contemplate letting Ben stay home from school. Then I remember I have to be responsible so I finally roll out of bed at about 7:10. On the way to take Ben to school I call his dentist and they can only get him in that morning. So I turn around and hurry and get ready to take Ben to the dentist. Get done with Ben at the dentist and drop him off at 9:50. Make it back home to meet Remii at 10.
We start driving and I ask him where we are going. He tells me that we have an appointment to look at a ring. But after a while we pass Bountiful, then Kaysville, and then I am starting to wonder where in the heck are we going?? Remii has a great poker face by the way. We finally get off an exit in Ogden and pull in to a helicopter place and I look at Remii and his poker face was gone and he had a huge smile and I KNEW! We got the briefing to start our helicopter ride and Remii had previously already signed both of our lives away and we were good to go.
The helicopter ride was perfect and absolutely beautiful! It was over Ogden canyon and the snow covered mountains looked amazing. Then about halfway through the ride I look over at Remii and he hands me a box that was upside down and backwards! Remii was so nervous. Before he even asked I was saying yes! I opened the box and it was the ring I had chosen and loved. I didn't want a rock. I wanted a blinging diamond band. It is perfect for me and I love the vintage look. I have never felt happiness like this before and I have been beaming all day. I think Remii is pretty excited too. We went to chick-fil-a and he started crying. He said he didn't know why he was so emotional, he is just so happy! Or it was because they were playing this love music at the time and it sounded like we were in a movie. Haha
I will cherish this day forever. I am so glad that I have found the happiness and man that I thought didn't exist. Someone that will care and love me for eternity. And love my boys just as much. I want to remember this feeling forever and I am so excited to start this new chapter in my life.
So when is the date you might ask?? March 29th as long as everything goes through as planned. And we are planning on the good ole Salt Lake Temple. The latest it would be is April 29th but the sooner the better.
