We're Engaged!

Let the wedding planning begin! 
My little sparkler is a 1.2 round cut with a yellow gold pave band.
Champagne and cake! 

Yesterday Ross made me the happiest girl in the world and asked me to marry him. The proposal was so "us"- very low key at his apartment. Proposal Story: Yesterday I went home for a doctor's appointment and decided to visit my dad. When I came home today, Ross gave me a poorly wrapped present and told me to open it. In the poorly wrapped package was jewelry cleaner. Let's just say, I wasn't impressed. I smiled and acted as excited as I could about some cleanser, but was a little disappointed. Well, let's be honest, I wasn't impressed at all. I looked through the wrapped bag hoping that my hoping would be in wasn't! So I'm thinking, "okay, whatever. It just isn't going to happen today." A little after that, we took a box I brought from my Dad's upstairs because we are slowly moving my things in so it won't be such an ordeal in May. After we set the box that contained two tea sets and some random china down, he headed back downstairs and I told him I would be down in a minute.  I ended up snooping through the spare room because I knew he picked up the ring on Monday and I was dying to know what it looked like. He ended up sneaking up behind me and got on one knee and asked me to marry him. I was hysterical: I was bawling my eyes out because I felt so guilty for being nosy, but I was also so excited. Ross' reaction to my hysterical crying was "Oh. I wasn't expecting that reaction. Are you okay?" Ha!
After the engagement, we called our family and shared the good news and then went out to our favorite restaurant, Amsterdam Cafe, to celebrate! After an amazing dinner, we stopped by to get a bottle of champagne and cake to continue the celebration. We are both so grateful to our wonderful family and friends for their incredible support. We won't be doing any wedding planning until I graduate in May and find a job, but we are both over the moon about this new and exciting chapter.
