I just wanted to take a minute to share the news with everyone...Colin and I are engaged!! I'm soo happy! He poped the question on our birthday (the 29th!) it was really sweet. We had spent the day at Hurrican Harbor (the water park at six flags in st. louis) and that night we came back and were going to order in some Chinese food and just watch dinner going to sleep. Or so i thought! Earlier in the month we agreed "no birthday presents" since the trip was our gift to each other. I broke the rule that morning and gave him a gift card and some stuff to use to build the shed he's been wanting to build for a while now. After we got back to the room that night we were sitting on the bed watching CSI (soo romantic) and waiting for our food to get there when he said, "I broke the rule too and got you a birthday present as well" then he pulled out the ring and the rest is history! Aww i'm soo happy! We got back in town late last night from our trip so i'm just now getting around to telling everyone. The ring is beautiful. The diamond came from a ring his aunt bought for his mom back when they lived in Vietnam over 40 years ago. When Colin told his family he was going to propose his mom insisted he use the diamond that had been in their family since it was special to all of them. (i feel really honored that they did that- i know how much that means to them). It's a 1/2 carat diamond in a platinum band. I'll try to borrow my mom's digital camera soon so i can snap a picture. I love it! I was soo happy- i just had to share my good news with everyone!
