Nick brought Ariana home? I was immediately confused. They asked me to come out to the family room, where Nick's parents were sitting with cameras in hand. Ariana dropped a Twix bar and a bouquet of pink roses into my lap and stepped back.
Nick stepped forward and asked me, "Remember the other day when you told me that you felt like we were already married?"
And for the next few moments, I must have blacked out, because I don't remember a darn thing.
The next thing I do remember is me crying, Nick crying, and a beautiful ring being slipped onto my finger. Thankfully Nick's parents were filming the whole thing, so there's videographic evidence that Nick dropped to his knees and asked me to marry him. On camera, you see me bury my head, start crying, and nod my head 'yes'.
Wee!!! I'm a fiancee! It's been a week and a half and I am still blissfully elated. We're looking at a wedding in the spring of 2014, which gives us plenty of time to plan every detail of the wedding of our dreams.
Nick already posted his thanks on Facebook, but I'd like to echo his thoughts: Thank you, thank you, thank you to all of our wonderful friends and family for the warm wishes! We couldn't be happier and are so thankful for the beautiful people we have in our lives.
Stay tuned for updates!
