A Peek Into Our Love Story...

Maybe I'm crazy for thinking that life would slow down when classes ended...
because life is c.r.a.z.y. right now. 
It's my first week of clinicals and I love the place I"m at but I'm overwhelmed a bit :)
I'm at that point where I'm wondering if I can every really be a REAL OT. 
I'll make it through, it's just craziness right now.

And I"m even crazier because now we've thrown the whole 'let's get married' thing into the mix too.
But that part I'm super excited about!!

Ack- did you miss that little detail?
I know I just shared an update into my life last week and even in that short amount of time,
something big happened!! 
If you saw it on Facebook, then you already know, 
but if you don't, I'm super happy to share with you....

my amazing sweet guy proposed to me last week and we are getting married!!!!! 
Eek, can you tell how excited I am??!!

It's still absolutely amazing to me that we are even able to say those words that we. are. getting. married. 

It's extraordinary!!! 
Which is totally my word for the year so it's perfectly appropriate!!! 

And just in case you're a sucker for cute proposal stories, I'll let you know about ours :) 

We were out on a typical day of running errands (mostly getting my guy ready for school to start)  and we decided to take little man to lunch. 
There's this really fun place in Little Rock called All Aboard where a little train runs on a track hung from the ceiling and lowers your food down to you. 
Super fun :) 

My guy had never been before and apparently thought the train was way too cool so he charmed the staff into putting the ring on a plate and lowering it down to the table to us. 
I was super confused as to why the train had come back around and literally gasped when I looked in and saw the ring.
Then I looked up and saw the sweet smile on my guys face and my heart completely melted. 
Little man was shouting 'how did that get in there?' over and over while my guy was asking the question I never in a million years thought I would hear from him- my dream guy!! 
To say the least, it was a very very exciting day for us. 

And the perfect place for our silly little family to start our journey :) 

Although little man thought that when he slipped the ring on my finger that we were all of a sudden married.
It took a while to explain what being 'engaged' means. 
He's super excited though- and so is my guy's little girl. 
They can't wait for us to be a family!!

Speaking of,
we've decided that it will be happening very soon!! a few weeks soon. 

We're planning for February 2, 2013!!! 

I know...
we're crazy. 

But that's how we roll :) 

We're just having a super simple ceremony with family present and then we'll most likely have a reception-type gathering afterwards to celebrate with friends.
Because of course, I need to decorate a little for something!! 

You can check out my board on Pinterest for some of my inspiration for the reception :) 
But it looks a little something like this: 

You know aqua had to be in there somewhere! 
And there will be lots of handmade touches... but you probably knew that :) 
And don't worry, I'll be sharing all the fun as we go!! 
I'm excited and a little bit nervous about getting things in order. 

But the BEST thing is that I get to marry the man of my dreams. 
So I'm not really that worried about much else :) 

I definitely want to share more of our story leading up to all of this wonderful-ness but that will be for another day.
I like leaving you in suspense cuz I'm mean like that :) 

Can you tell that I'm super happy by all the smilies I've used in this post?
 :) :) :) 

You guys are the best- be ready for a fun furniture redo on Friday.
I know, I'm FINALLY getting back down to business! 
See you then!!!
