It's Time For A New Post!

Guess what?!?!?!





I'M ENGAGED!!!!

Once you've finsished reading this post, you can scroll down to a post from early this year entitled, You Asked, I Delivered! Actually, Steff Is The Only One Who Asked So You All Get a Freebie :), and you'll see the lucky guy! :)

For those of you who don't know, his name is Tyler. He proposed to me on Friday. We were out singing karaoke. We usually sing a few songs together so when the DJ called us up there, I didn't really think too much of it. When we got up to the front, I noticed the screen said George Strait. I asked if he was sure I was singing with him because we never sing George together - he doesn't have any duets. He said yes so I picked up the mic. When he picked up his mic, he said, "Okay, I lied. I'm going to sing this one by myself. But before I do, I just want you to know I love you. I've loved you since I met you and I will always love you. (insert more mushy stuff I can't remember)."
Then he got down on one knee, opened the ring box and said, "I have a question for you. Will you marry me?"
I said yes but I don't think he heard me. I was crying. He stood up and said, into the mic, "I think that's a yes."
The whole bar was hootin' and hollerin'. People we didn't know were coming up and huggin us. It was really neat. Tyler's mom was there & she got pictures of it. If I get copies, I'll post them.
I also tried to take a picture of the ring but my camera batteries are dead and the camera in my phone doesn't take good pictures. Plus, it doesn't format them right so I couldn't post it anyway. I'll get batteries and post a picture of the ring, it's beautiful! My favorite out of all the ones I've had! LOL

That's all for now, I'm sure I'll have lots to talk about now that something interesting is going on. I probably won't have time to though :) Funny how that works.

That's funny. I was proposed to in front of George Strait, too. He's so the go-to guy for romance.

Yay! you!! Congratulations! I can't wait for you to bring him to the family reunion either. We'll have to talk Julie into another BBQ for us to crash (or maybe we'll host one next time, too).

We're very happy for you!

Love,

Dalene and Shane
