I liked it so I put a ring on it!

And she said "YES!" :) That's right...on the 4th of July holiday I asked my beautiful/amazing/brilliant/sexy girlfriend to spend the rest of her life with me, and she went for it.

I didn't have anything fancy planned, but with a house-full of family there couldn't have been a more perfect time to pop the question. I just asked Kelly to come upstairs so I could show her this "one other thing from IKEA" that I'd gotten her. It was some sort of egg-shaped nesting doll-style container. When she got to the top of the stairs I cranked up "I'm Yours" and asked her to open it up. She says she doesn't remember a thing about it except that it was a huge surprise. Lucky for me I caught her off guard. ;)

Like I said, the timing was perfect as we were going out on the town that night with an amazing dinner planned at Michael Smith's restaurant. It was an amazing meal, celebrating our engagement as well as my brother/sis-in-laws upcoming baby. The food was amazing, the wine delectable, and the conversation jubilant!

Oh yeah, one other thing...Alex couldn't have been happier. It was only days after she gave us her best rendition of Beyonce's big hit..."Single Ladies."

I couldn't be more excited to spend the rest of my life with my partner, my soulmate, my better half, my best friend and now fiancée Kelly. Here's to a lifetime of joy, laughter, and successful home renovations!!! Na zdrowie!!!
