Aaron and I are engaged!!! I got requests for details, so here we go. Yesterday was 9-09-09, so Aaron had planned it all. Last week he told me we were gonna have dinner on Wednesday night. So I asked with whom, and he said with us. OK, works. I worked yesterday and taught my Zumba ® Fitness class at Baylor and went home. I took a shower and of course I did not know what to wear, because Aaron did not tell me where we were going and said I could wear whatever I wanted. So I put on a new dress my mom bought me in Germany. At last, Aaron told me we were gonna go to Rockwall, TX. That seemed a little far for only a dinner, but ok. For those of you who do not know, but they have a lake there with lights and so on and it is really romantic at night, they even have a light house. So anyway, we had dinner at Gloria’s, which was really good and then went for a walk. Aaron had brought his camera, which I found odd, but since it is working again I did not think anything of it. We went towards the lake and just walked. He had suggested we should take some pics at the lake later so that is what we planned to do. There is a couple nice spots around there so we decided for the light house area. Fortunately there was another couple just about to leave. They were standing a little farther away from where I had sat down. Aaron went over to them and asked them to take a picture of us, I could not hear anything they said, but the girl seemed awkwardly excited to just take a picture after Aaron had talked to them now that I think about it. So I got up and Aaron told me he had to tell me something. So he said he loved me and I said it back. And also he had to give me something. He had the box with the ring in his back pocket the entire time while we were having dinner. He got the box out of his pocket, went down on his knee and asked me to marry him. Of course I was speechless, but I did say YES!!!! After that we went to Tut’s house to tell them because it was on the way and they were all excited. I called Jasmin on the way there and she knew!!!!! Aaron had shown her the ring as she was here and he had planned a long time ago. We had gone out to dinner on purpose the Wednesday before I left to go to Germany, so I would not suspect anything yesterday! That’s what I heard, at least! Anyways, I could not be happier!!!
