i said YES!!!

SO definitely read the below post that Josh posted VERY shortly before he asked me so you can get the entire set up, but here's how it went down after all that planning he so perfectly did!

Josh has been talking about how we need to get a "Bad A Certification" video of me made :) one of our little jokes. so we keep planning to do another stunt driving video and maybe even a wrecking video for fun. he planned that today after i got off work from my half day (that he so sneakily made happen) that we would go do some stunt driving. well what he didn't know was even though SO many people already knew about today's plans i did NOT, but i FELT it! i swear i did! i told my mom when i brought her a quick lunch at around 10:30ish and she was talking about having a hair appt at 3 and Josh was sending me texts about getting his hair cut that "I think Josh is going to ask me today. Is he asking me today?" haha she didn't know so we just laughed about how funny it would be if i actually guessed. i went back to work for a short time, came home, showered, then decided to send and save a message on my cell phone as PROOF in case he really did ask me that said "he's asking me today ;) i feel it! the clues are there... let's make a wrecking video hmmm fishy! plus he got a hair cut! hehehe! yay" at exactly 12:17pm... THEN at 3:08 i sent a text to Katie saying basically the same thing! crazy huh? i think it's pretty special and VERY evident to me that we are totally linked since there were no real clues but i felt it.

so he tells me his brother Jake is having problems with his brakes so we are going to get this Bad A Certification video made while i load up his truck on the wrecker. :) we get there and i get started. i haven't seen the video footage yet but i know i complained a bit about getting muddy and having to do it by myself. then when it came to getting up under Jake's truck to really hook up the first chain they had tied on a BRIGHT green string the RING! yep, and believe it or not i did NOT see it at all at first. also there was a GREEN camera filming me from under the truck in my FACE that i did not see either... guess i was just concentrated on getting that certification that i didn't look around really----so i hook it and get out from the truck. at this point Josh and Jake are looking at each other like "ummm did it disappear?" and i said something like "is that the right spot?" Josh informs me i'm wrong so i get back under there and finally i SEE IT!!!!

(in the video footage that i'm sure we will post eventually you apparently will see my gloved hand touch the ring not 1, not 2, but THREE times!?!?!?! what in the world??? BRIGHT GREEN STRING MEGAN?!?!?! SHINY BIG ROCK?!?!?!)

so i started laughing and tried to untie it but my hands felt shaky so Josh handed me a knife and i cut it loose while he waited for me on bended knee (SO CUTE btw). FINALLY i got up from under there. and though he was down on one knee and i always dreamed that moment to be a beautiful one that i would no doubt try to make funny by saying "i dont know," i actually didn't think or let him speak but tackled him into the mud and rolled around a bit saying YES! :)

i could not be happier about all of this!!!

when i look at the above picture i am SO happy. and this definitely is the essence of one of my favorite Shakespeare quotes (and my only tattoo) "How all the other passions fleet to air.." it goes on after that of course, but in the context of the play she is basically saying -WOW this Love is sooo amazing that all my other cares and concerns in the world have just floated away as meaningless babble and if there was even a tiny bit more of this Love i would literally EXPLODE!

the other craziness was that Josh's sister Hillary was hiding in the bushes/woods across the road wearing camo snapping these pictures!!! awesome huh?!

Josh talks about the ring and how we picked it in the previous blog but i had to post pics! isn't it BEAUTIFUL! i'm going to have to get a wagon to carry this rock around in!

i think this is truly the PERFECT ring for me from my PERFECT man!

AND if you thought that was all of the surprises Josh had in store for me, you are mistaken. wow huh? he also planned that at 7pm we would be meeting a BIG party of family and friends from allll over at Madison's in Beaumont for dinner and celebration. This day alone, just being proposed to by the love of my life, my BEST half, my hookerpants, my everything would have solely been more more more than enough to keep my heart happy and my face smiling ear to ear in bliss forever---BUT to also share this awesome day with so many very important people meant the world to me! i have no idea how to put all of today's thoughts into words really... i was so shocked! i couldn't believe so many people came out to celebrate with us! i think it was over 60 people or something like that-i have no clue really but it was grrrreat!

for those of you that came-thank you so much! for those Josh invited that couldn't, it's okay i still love you bunches! and for those of you who came and were stuck listening to me yell random mixed up sentences about today in my high pitched squeals while mostly just staring at my own hand in such narcism-sorry about that! i'll try to also tone down the reciting lines of Shakespeare like "see how she lays her cheek upon her hand" by the end of the weekend i swear.

wow. thank you baby for it all! i cannot put it into words how much i love you and am happy about us, and am crazy for even attempting to!
