She's Engaged!!

So happy!
It's official! Princess is engaged!

Wait, let me back up a bit. So you all know that yesterday was Leap Day and (in theory) the only day a woman can ask a man for his hand in marriage. Well, last week Jaron formally asked if he could marry Princess, so we have been expecting a ring and proposal to be forthcoming.

This morning, Drama Queen came up with this brilliant beyond brilliant idea that Princess could buy a ring and make the proposal herself (mostly to take the pressure off). So Drama Queen headed for WalMart and bought a $20 ring while Princess was at school. There was very little time for this adventure to take place since Princess didn't get home from work until after 9:30.

But then it was just a few minutes before we heard the knock on the door and her sweetie was here. They drove up to the Draper Temple grounds and got out and went for a little hike by "their" temple. She started to issue her proposal when he dropped to one knee with an "Oh no you don't," and presented her with a ring. She said "Yes," and I'm sure they did a little mushy smooching in front of the temple before they climbed in the car to drive back home.

She called me on the way to tell me and the first question we asked was which one of them popped the question. Not to be outdone, she did present him with the ring in the driveway before they came into the house. By then it was after midnight, so most everyone was asleep, but she made the announcement for me, Prima Donna, Drama Queen, Dog Walker, and on skype with Teach and Twiz.

The wedding is set for May 21 in Draper. Never a dull moment around here.
