The Proposal



In my last post, I said "You remember the dolphins." But then I realized that a lot of my readers only met me after I got married and moved out here! So unless they have stalked through all my old Facebook notes (I think I'm the only one creepy enough to do that), they probably had no clue what I was talking about.

Back in March, we were not engaged. I had gone ring shopping with my sister a few months before, so that if Kurt wanted to he would have an inside man. It was supposed to work both ways- I was hoping she'd clue me in when he was getting ready to pop the question.

When it started snowing again in Utah, Kurt asked if I wanted to go to LA for the weekend- it's where he served his mission. I had never been (and I was sick of the snow) so I said Heck Yes!

The day before we left, I asked my spy if he had gone ring shopping yet. She said no (She lied to my face!). After a few hours of complaining about how rings take a long time to size, and he was leaving in August, and how was I supposed to plan a wedding?? I had no doubt that I would be staying single for a while.

He took me hiking in Palos Verdes. We ended up out on a cliff, overlooking the ocean. It was maybe 20 feet wide, and hundreds of feet high. And yes, there were dolphins. He still hasn't told me how he arranged that. He pulled me away from the edge, and got down on one knee. I was too shocked to say yes at first. He is pretty smooth.

This is an actual photograph of the proposal.

I noticed that you had zero comments on this post and I thought it was quite hilarious,so I commented so you could atleast have one :) I find that big fat zero staring at me to be very disappointing after a post, so I thought I'd let you know I enjoyed it. Wow...this is a really long comment...sorry if you didn't really care about not having any comments...I'll stop now. Good night :D

Oh man, I live for comments. It totally makes my day. Or night. Or whatever the heck 1:30 in the morning is.
