Blogging was so much easier when Cameron was gone. Maybe that's because I had nothing to do, so I had time to blog. The sad thing is, now my life really is blog-worthy and I have no time. What a cruel fate.
Here is a blog worthy story, and since Cameron is at work and it's saturday, I actually have time to blog.
We got engaged last week. Just before my birthday. He was 3 days shy of being home two months. He absolutely surprised me. I went into work on Thursday morning, tired and grumpy, to find a big box on my desk. It had a bow and said "open me now."
With it being so close to my birthday, I figured it was a birthday present from my friend Kristin and began to open it. Inside the box was another box, and another, and another. Finally I got to the bottom, there was a wrapped present. I unwrapped the present to find a little white picture book.
The book was full of pictures of us from high school up until now...It was adorable.
On the very last page was a picture of the temple and Cameron's proposal.
After I finished reading I figured out what was going on and turned back to the boxes to find a ring, then cameron came walking in and got down on one knee and asked me to marry him.
I said yes.
I was completely in shock and shaking...He completely surprised me. I was SO sure we were getting engaged on my birthday - or christmas. Not at 8 o'clock on a Thursday morning at work. He did it, he surprised me and I am so impressed. My co-workers ran in and hugged me, then my boss told me to leave. Cameron and I went back to his house to have breakfast. It was such a sweet morning and such a great surprise. That night he took me to dinner at Bucca di Pepo (that's spelled so wrong - but you get the point) and we celebrated our first night as an engaged couple.
It's still weird to call him my fiance, but I like it. We set the temple date back before we went to Hawaii but after we were ring-official Cameron called and requested my temple information.
We are so so so very excited.
