3: ~ How we got engaged ~ The bride's version... | The morning of December 11, 2010, I graduated from college. We were having a party afterwards to celebrate with all of our friends and family. We had been talking about getting married for a while, but Jason told me that unfortunately it wouldn't be as soon as I'd hoped it would be. He also told me that he hoped after Christmas he could save up the money to buy a ring for me. The morning of graduation he was talking about how it would be a great day to "pop the question" but unfortunately it wasn't going to happen. I had completely written off any kind of engagement for a while at that point. The party went great and it was awesome to get our families together to meet for the first time. Then Jason decided that it was time for a toast. I thought he was giving it, but then he told me to do it since I had just graduated. I had no idea what to say, I hadn't planned on giving a speech! So I did my best and thanked everyone for coming, apologized for taking so long to get through college. I looked at Jason and told him I wasn't sure what else to say. He said that it was a short speech, then he started talking about how we'd been together for three and a half years. I was confused and was wondering, "What the heck does this have to do with me graduating from college?" Then he patted his pockets and pulled out the ring box. (I'm sure he said something else at this point in time, but it is all fuzzy to me.) He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! I couldn't believe it! I cried and was so excited! It was the most amazing proposal ever, and having our families and friends there made it perfect.

7: I get the best feeling in the world when you say hi or even smile at me because I know, even if its just for a second, that I've crossed your mind.
8: Find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who calls you back when you hang up on him, who will lie under the stars and listen to your heartbeat, or will stay awake just to watch you sleep... wait for the boy who kisses your forehead, who wants to show you off to the world when you are in sweats, who holds your hand in front of his friends, who thinks you' re just as pretty without makeup on. One who is constantly reminding you of how much he cares and how lucky he is to have YOU... The one who turns to his friends and says, thats her...
