One Step Closer to Forever...

The love of my life proposed to me on Saturday morning! After 5+ years of dating Frankie and I are happily engaged!

It wasn't totally unexpected, but this particular Saturday caught me quite off guard...Rachel, Jaime, Trevor, and I had planned to roadtrip to Houston to see John Mayer with Frankie and then stay the night at his apartment. So when I got a phone call at 7:30am, I was a bit thrown off. Frankie told me to get up, get ready, that he had a suprise for me. I was little angered, I must admit, because I still had 15 minutes to sleep before getting ready to meet at Trevor's at 10, and what kind of suprise could be that great, that early in the morning. Little did I know that Frankie had driven home to Devine late Friday night, planned the whole thing with Kathy (his sister, my friend- thanks Kat!), and then came back to SA early Saturday morning to set up a scavenger hunt all around town (another post later, when I get more pics)!

So I ended up at the park, where he had written in sidewalk chalk "Will You Marry Me?" and then got down on one knee with the most gorgeous ring I've ever seen!! I was so excited and so happy, I couldn't stop laughing and I almost forgot to say yes! But I did and I couldn't be happier!
We proceded to Trevor's apartment where everyone was waiting and after I shared my news, Frankie and I were quickly congratulated with huge smiles and huge hugs - and I just have to say that I am so thankful to have such amazing friends to share this excitement with!

The rest of the day we spent shopping and eating in the Woodlands, and then we watched the beautiful Colbie Calliat and talented John Mayer jam out all night!! It was such a fun day!!
