The Day I Got Engaged

Today, one year ago, is the day I got engaged to my wonderful husband! It was one of the best days of my life. At the time, we were dating long distance since Dallin was working in California and I was finishing up my last semester of school in Utah. He told me that he planned a special day for me because he missed me, and that everything was already paid for, I just needed to show up with a friend to the places he sent me. This didn't seem out of the ordinary because Dallin was always doing nice things for me. So, first Candice and I went out to breakfast at my favorite Crepe place in Utah. They brought us out my favorite breakfast- Strawberry, Banana, & Nutella crepes. To top it off, the server gave Candice and I these pink shakes topped with sprinkles. Next, we both got professional massages. It was amazing.

After I got home from that, Natasha came out with me to the next place, which was off to the nail salon. We got pedicures together. I was surprised that Dallin picked out such a good nail place (must have had sisters help). Then, we went to Nordstrom where they had a gift card on hold for me to shop for whatever I wanted- My man knows the way to my heart ;)

After that, Dallin's sister-in-law Hannah picked me up to take me to dinner in Sundance. As we were walking to the restaurant, she said that Dallin left a gift for me by the bonfire. I looked over and there were rose petals surrounding a present. I opened the gift and there was a note from Dallin inside. As I started to read, out walks Dallin! I was totally shocked. He told me the sweetest things before he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. He had been calling me throughout the day pretending he was at work and in meetings- little did I know he was in Utah the whole day (and met with my dad). I felt so much love and happiness and peace in that moment. It was perfect.

We then had dinner together at a restaurant in Sundance, and I think I stared at my ring the whole time. After, we went to Shane and Hannah's house and tons of friends were there to surprise us and say congrats!
