That's right, blog readers! In just 95 days, I will be MRS. DANIEL KADE JOHNSON!! SO excited! I'm so in love with this great guy and being engaged to him is the best thing ever!

Friday, October 22nd, was the day and...oh it was the best night of my life!
I worked the volleyball game that night and then went to get hot chocolate at Denny's with Dan (thinking it was the same as any other night). After chatting and laughing for awhile, we headed to Dan's house. He said before we did anything, we needed to read scriptures because we're a little behind... haha so we read scriptures and then we were talking about what we wanted to do so I started to tease him a little (ha! he's so ticklish when his mind is on other things..).
Anyway, he was kneeling on the ground so he reached over and grabbed some stuff from under the end table in the living room. (That's when I knew that was the night!) I was smiling so big and he just said, "ok, I'm going to be a little cheesy now." I told him I loved cheesy and he proceeded.
1st he handed me a Snicker's candy bar and said, "This is because of all the laughs we've had getting to know each other."
2nd he handed me a Twix candy bar and said, "This is because sometimes I can be a twit and you put up with me." (I think this one is completely untrue but he's so cute so I let him continue haha)
3rd he handed me an Almond Joy candy bar and said, "This is because you are one of the greatest joys in my life."
4th he handed me a Symphony bar and said, "This is...well, I don't have one for this one. They're just good." (haha he makes me laugh)
AND THEN he pulled out the ring box, opened it up, and said, "And this is because I love you so much and want to spend the rest of my life and all of eternity with you. Will you marry me?"

AND...after kissing him for a LONG minute (haha)...I SAID YEEEEESSSS!!

Also, my ring is gorgeous!!!
