The Luckiest

Happy belated St. Patrick's day, y'all! I hope it brought some sunshine and luck for all of you!
It certainly did for me! Well, not so much sunshine, but snow and luck.
Yesterday, we had a ward temple trip yesterday. I am so happy that I was able to go to the temple. I always feel completely at home there.
My day would have been complete if I had left the temple with just that amazing feeling. But, it gets better. I left with a beautiful ring given to me by my very best friend, Christopher.
While the snow was blowing around us, Christopher asked me to marry him.
I've know that this would happen for quite some time, and thought I was completely prepared for that moment, but I wasn't. I said yes, but it's still so strange to think that I have a fiancé and I am going to have a husband and be a wife.
I am beyond excited for this next step in my life though, and am so excited to get started on the wedding plans. Well, actually not making the plans, but actually putting them into action. If you know me at all, or follow me on Pinterest, or have seen my stack of Martha Stewart Weddings magazines, then you know that I have been planning this wedding for quite a while.

Just moments before he popped the question.

He took Beyonce's advice and "put a ring on it".

Hey Kristi!

First I need to say CONGRATULATIONS!

Second....Candi may kill me for telling you.....but it's so cute. Anyway....Candi e-mailed me the second after you text'd her and told her. She said that she was on the bus on her way home from work and just about squealed out loud on the bus for you!!! lol. She was so happy to hear. So were we. Excited that is!

Third......I think St. Patrick's Day is a GOOD day to be "your day". Yours and Christopher's. Brother C and my day is Remembrance Day - and my parents engagement day is Ground Hog Day. HA ha! So's to your engagement on St. Patrick's day! That's a really HAppY and FuN DaY!! ; )
