On September 14th Jonathan & I took a trip to Disneyland.  Since we have annual passes, this wasn't anything particularly special for us besides the fact that for once, we were able to go on our own.  

Little did I know, that lurking in the cargo pocket of his shorts, Jonathan had hidden a beautiful little gem - a surprise - a ring.  

Of course, he had it all planned out ... & of course, I would not go along with anything he suggested - not knowing that he had a reason for wanting to go on the Ferris wheel we fell for each other on.  

But in the end, everything worked out.  He asked.  I said: "Are you fer realz?"  & then there was this perfect ring on my finger.  

We finally got to go on the new Cars Land ride, getting popcorn while waiting in the hour-long line (the shortest it's been since it opened), without a care in the world ... because we were now engaged.  

He sent a text to my mom, pretending to ask for permission.  When she said: "Yes, of course!" - he said: "Good!  Because she said yes!"  Of course, that was cuter than anything - I "D'awwed!" all over the place.  He called his mom & told her how I had asked him to marry me so that I could level up my feminism ... she bought it, & I made him tell her the truth.  He gave me the run down on how he obtained the ring, "The Trials & Tribulations of Ring Bearing."  We put together a series of fake text messages to announce our engagement on Facebook, which I'm pretty sure a lot of people thought was how it really went down.  This amused me & made me realize how ridiculous people really think we are ... it may or may not be validated.  

In all, it was a great day!  

We're set to get married on October 11th, 2014.  I've got an awesome florist for a friend.  I'm pretty sure we're keeping things really simple besides having lots of pretty flowers & an amazing photographer.  Caleb John Hill is booked - his photography is stellar ... & he's a local bloke!  We're bringing back the wedding band with Honeypie, a friend of Jonathan's, whose music I adore!  I'm debating designing my own invitations ... any thoughts on that?  Basically, I'm stoked.  

There's still so much to do, but I've got plenty of time.  I'm really excited, & can't wait to see all the pieces come together!
