Jan 10Th 2009 will be the most romantic amazing day thus far in my whole life! Why you may be asking ... well the man of my dreams just officially asked me to marry him, oh and for him I think it is the most planned out day that he has ever lived. lol. Well i am sure you are dieing to hear details so here I go. First of all i had no clue the whole time. We of course have already planned to get married so the ring part He was just waiting to give to me at the perfect time and it so was. It stared out with a wake up call at 7:00 am on Saturday morning making sure that I was up and on my way to the shower. I arrived at his house to find a pen propping the door so I could let myself in. On the table as I first walked in the door was a Starbucks coffee with a piece of paper in font with Christina and an arrow written across it. he was still in the shower so I at on the couch with my coffee waiting for him to get done. then he cooked me pancakes, bacon, eggs and orange juice.
After breakfast we headed to the car with two very large backpacks in hand. On the passenger side of the car there was two beautiful long stem roses,red and pink. There is nothing quite like getting flowers,. I always thought it was over rated until I received my first rose, and yes it was from Chris, sweet I know. :) We were now on our way to the falls!!! I brought my new camera and took like a thousand pictures of everything. Which ended up being perfect since it was to be the day I became betrothed. :) once we got to the falls we took our huge backpacks and headed for the lodge to get some more coffee. To the top we headed. once we arrived on the top, which took a while since I stopped every five feet to take a photo ... my bad, He stared pulling things out of one of the backpacks. Our bibles, a blanket, a portable ipod player and his ipod. We spent the next half hour to forty-five mins reading our bibles listening to Jon thurlow. He is an amazing guy from international house of prayer in Kansas City. Oh I almost forgot to mention that it was FREEZING on top the hillside. there was still mounds of snow left over from the winter blast we received. So to prevent our selves from freezing to death we found two big rocks that formed a little cave to move to after we finished reading our bibles. He then emptied the rest of the things from the backpacks. He brought all of my favorite sandwich items. Pickles, honey mustard, ham , salami, pepperoni, lettis, tomatoes, mayo,olives, green peppers all on a nice piece of french bread. It was the biggest sandwich I have ever made/eaten.
Next comes the highlight... With Jesus music still playing Chris leaned behind me , I was like what are you doing ? he sat up stared at me and said nothing. then he leaned behind me again, I was like no really weirdo what are you doing he looks at me again and just smiles the biggest sweetest smile ever.. he next words would change our lives completely. "Hun... I need to talk to you about our relationship." dumb-founded I say nothing.I am thinking what on earth could he say everything is going so well we are being safe, smart , and very honest. He grabs my hands and stands us both up, smiles again. I glance down and right as he begins to drop to one knee I spot the ring. Instantly I begin to cry "Christina Rose... will you marry me?" I continue to cry say yes grab the ring from his hand put it on and huge him. Still crying I give him a big kiss, hug him again and keep on crying. people are around just starring. Which is the best feeling ever when you just got engaged. instead of saying some sweet words like how he is go great and how much I love him I just call him a monkey and punch him in the arm. I was totally shocked. It was so perfect!!!!
Now I spend most of my time starring at my own hand, it is so great!
