What a way to wake up at 5am! Saturday morning I woke up around 5 and could hear Aaron in the kitchen. I thought that it was not like him to be up in the night. He sleeps like the dead. He came back in the room and said something about the dogs bugging him. I said they want you to let them out. He came back with "I'm not going to let them right now". I started to get angry. He was already awake, he was already out of bed and now I was getting up to let the dogs out. Grrr.

Grumbling the whole way, eyes barely open, I let the dogs out and waited for them to do their thing outside not bothering to turn on the lights. I couldn't wait to get back to bed.

On my way back in through the kitchen there he was. Completely dressed in his jeans and sweatshirt and hat. "Why are you dressed" I asked, really annoyed at this point, "are you going out somewhere?"
"Didn't you see anything outside?" he asked.
"no" I said "why?"
"Come back here" and he walked me back to the door and turned on the lights outside. That is when I saw this.

I couldn't believe it. We had be talking about getting married for a little while now but then the conversations suddenly stopped. The reason they stopped I know now is because he had ordered my ring. It is so beautiful. Just my taste. I love it! I am so happy.

He asked my parents on Friday and showed my mother the ring. We spent this weekend visiting family to let them all know. Now we have a wedding to plan. We are thinking that we will go away for the wedding and then have a reception when we get back.

I'm very overwhelmed and excited.
