The Best Christmas present EVER!!!!!!

You wait your entire life to hear the words, "Will you marry me?" And last night that wait came to an end! After 4 years and 2 months, Justin popped the question. I'm telling you it could not have been more perfect.
Let me tell you the story.....
We had plans to go to "Historic Downtown" to enjoy the Christmas festivities. We stumbled upon this little treat last season and I have been begging to go back sense then. I am really passionate about cute, little, festive places you can make memories. This year we invited our best couple friends...The Gray's and the Stewarts. We LOVE these couples. They are in our small group and we share so many memories with was perfect that they were involved. Also, my sister Jill and Vicki were in downtown. We saw them before the big moment and they rushed back over right after. I was excited they were also there to be apart of this exciting evening!

This little street town is blocked off around the historic area and have a HUGE tree they light up, all the little shops are open, Santa and Mrs. Claus are there, and they have horse and caraige rides up and down the street. Screams charming right? Here are the pictures....
The was packed earlier....we closed the place down!
Anna's Pizzaria, where we had dinner!!Justin getting down on one knee.....We were supposed to be taking a family picture and I thought he was tieing his shoe. :)
**airhead** Him showing me the ring and popping the question....I am finally figuring out what is happening!!
It's true, I said YES!!! Are you shocked?

Hey Hey, I like the look of that! ;)I am THAT girl putting my hand on his chest....:)I think I was talking to my parents, I am clearly very happy!My ring! Justin told his uncle exactly what he wanted and his uncle made it. He is very talented!! It is so strange getting use to having a ring on your hand, but I think I'll survive!! ;)

YAY! We are engaged. I think this is my most favorite picture! He seems so relieved!

Thank you everyone for keeping secrets and pulling off a great evening!

Casting Crowns

A few weeks back I had the opportunity to go to a Casting Crowns concert. I have been a huge fan of their music for sometime and it has been years since I have seen a Christian band in DC Talk long time. ;)
I went to the concert with Justin's boss's wife and three girls......they are such good fun people! I love hanging out with these girls! The guys were working and totally missed out.
It was so amazing to see so many people come together for worship.....not only are they gathered, but they paid $$$ to be there. It gave me a little sense of hope......that there are still people longing to worship!!

If you get a chance to see Casting Crowns, go see them, you will be so glad you did. And between them and Kelly over at Kelly's Korner....I am looking to adopt 24 children from Compassion International. They support a great ministry and I hope to one day be apart of it.
