**Right after it happened. Jacob was so sweet! I was obviously in shock by the look on my face and he just sat there and told me he loved me and rubbed my back. Good grief I love him.**
**Can't you tell we're excited?!?!**
**Probably one of my favorite pictures from the night**
**Hanging to ornament that Jacob gave me the ring in. I'll cherish that ornament forever.**
**My beeeeeee-utiful ring!**
And now the moment you've all been waiting for: the date.
Drum rolllllll please:
December 4th, 2010!
We thought it would be sweet to get married exactly one year after we got engaged. I had always said that I didn't want to be engaged more than a year and it looks like I'll get my way about that! My roommate, Ashley, told me a funny fact a few days ago. She said, "Do you realize that he proposed exactly a year after we went down to Austin and went bowling with him? Did you realize that??" The story behind that is that I begged her to go down to Austin with me that night because I really wanted to see Jacob again. I hadn't seen him since the night we met but had talked on the phone with him some. Nothing beats a phone conversation more than a face to face conversation. Being the safety minded person I am, I wanted someone to go with me for insurance purposes. Someone to fake illness in case it wasn't going well. :) No need for that- bowling was more fun that I've had in a long time. After the proposal, Staci brought to my attention that December 4th fell on a Saturday next year and that we could get married exactly one year after we got engaged. How precious! So, it looks like December 4th plays a huge part in our relationship: our first semi-date; our engagement; and next year, our wedding! Thanks to Ashley and Staci for bringing that date to our attention!
