I’m Engaged!

ImageNate and I had tickets to the Jason Aldean concert in St. Paul on Friday, February 17th. I took the afternoon off of work so we could have a nice dinner downtown before the concert.

The afternoon was a beautiful one with sunshine and temperatures in the mid-40s. Crazy for a Minnesota “winter,” but I’ll take it!

Nate had made reservations at Kincaid’s for dinner, but after some discussion, we decided to try somewhere else to eat. We stopped in a Pazzaluna for a drink and looked over the menu but decided they didn’t offer anything we wanted.

After some wandering and much discussion, we decided to fall back to the original plan of going to Kincaid’s. We were glad we did! We both had the herb crusted prime rib and potatoes au gratin; both were spectacular. After our meal, we split the waffle sundae, which was also amazing. Nate doesn’t usually eat much for dessert, but this time he ate his fair half.

Between dinner and the concert, we had time to kill, so we did some more wandering around. We eventually ended up in Rice Park, looking at the white lights on the trees. That’s when he dropped to his knee, presented the ring and asked me to marry him!

I literally asked him if he was serious before I said yes, with my eyes overflowing with tears of joy. I was blown away and completely surprised. After he put the ring on my finger, we headed over to the concert venue. It’s a good think he was holding my hand as we walked because I’m certain I would have found something to walk straight into. I was in a daze of happiness (and still am!). Needless to say, it was the best concert I’ve ever been to! You should see how the dancing lights at a concert make a diamond sparkle!

Of course, the following week was busy with visiting and calling the friends and family we wanted to share the news with before announcing it publicly on Facebook.


The same is true for getting engaged.


I planned on simply sitting back and enjoying this step before moving onto the wedding planning phase, but somehow I’ve already jumped in. The ideas started flowing about two days in and haven’t stopped yet. Poor Nate…

That’s the big news!
