'SURPRISE' Engagement Party

They got me! Martha and Kay threw us an engagement party tonight. I was under the impression it was my birthday dinner, so needless to say I was a little surprised when my grandparents and family friends were there as well. It was a lovely evening, they did an awesome job!
Martha, Kay, Mom, Steven, Grandma, Papa, Mandy, Sophia, Sarah, Zach, Jean, Marty, Jenifer, Sonya, John, Chris, Charla, Christy, DeeDee, Daphne, and us!

WE ARE ENGAGED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

One year ago today Richard and I first met. We had been talking awhile online before face to face, at Baby A's in north Austin. Because of work he was late, so I sat at the bar and had a couple margaritas and waited..patiently! And boy am I glad I did.
So today we got up this morning and went to church, then headed to Baby A's for lunch. Afterwards I suggested going to Mt.Bonnell since it was such a beautiful day since Richard had never been. We hiked up to the top, and walked around then we were standing on this huge rock. And he had pulled the box out of his pocket and he asked me to marry him. My heart started racing, I cried, and I said "Yes!".

My face is a little sore from smiling so much! :)

Celebrating Birthdays!

Papa's Birthday is tomorrow (he will be 79) and mine is next week (I'll be 29), so we all went out to eat tonight. Mimi's Cafe---YUMMY! I had pistachio crusted salmon, it was delicious. Had a great time with everyone!
