Congratulations to us!

Bradley and I came to a major conclusion this past Saturday morning; we have become a lazy bunch, spending most of our weekends together lounging around and accomplishing nothing. So, we decided this weekend would be productive. We grabbed our dogs, packed the car, and headed off to southern Texas to visit the ocean. What I thought would be a fun road trip filled with junk food, quality time and misbehaving dogs actually turned into something more. Once we hit the beach Teddy, Baggera and I were the first ones to jump in, now if any of you know Brad you know that he loves the beach, loves the water, the sand the whole enchilada. So I found it odd that he wasn’t right behind me or at least right behind Teddy, the slow little guy in the back. After what felt like ten minutes in the water Brad became persistent that we head back to the roach motel, after much complaining on Baggera’s part we headed off. When suddenly out of no where Bradley Thomas Whitehead got down on one knee, for what I thought was a joke, a very unfunny joke. I could hardly understand what he was saying because I was to busy asking: are you joking? Are you serious? And do you promise?... promise what I don’t know; tell me how much sense you make in a moment like this. I would tell you in great detail what happened but let’s face it, this is our moment and I want it just for us. All in all I must tell you that Brad did all of this on his own, he ordered the ring, changed the prong count, the size and thought of the most romantic way to surprise me. He is utterly amazing and the ring that I now wear (by the way I’m not just wearing it for fun, I said YES) is so beautiful. It is old fashioned, sparkly and I will not lie when I say he picked me out a BIG one. :) So on May 3rd on the beach at sunset I became engaged, I went from a girlfriend to a fiancĂ©, from ringless to a diamond and from the happiest women in the world to the most blessed woman in the world. Still to this very moment I cannot really wrap me head around the fact that the best man that I know chose me!
