In the spirit of lovey-dovey Valentine's Day, I thought I'd share our engagement story with everyone who never heard it, or who just loves it and wants to hear it again.
On October 23, 2009 Zach told me that we'd be going on a picnic for our date. Not too weird, we've gone on a couple before, though oddly, none since. Anyway, around 4:30 Zach picked me up. We originally went to school because he wanted to have the picnic in the little gazebo on campus, but there were people in there so he decided we could have our picnic at Winterplace park. So we drove over there and Zach opened the back door of his car and surprised me with the first big surprise of the night. Pumpkins!
Zach and the aforementioned pumpkins. It should be known that I actually literally picked out these pumpkins two days before because he told me his mom wanted them. Tricky Tricky!
Anyway, that was really cute, we carried them out to the picnic table and Zach started setting up dinner. Sandwiches, chips, potato salad, pumpkin seeds (!!! home made, my FAVORITE), diet soda, and he put out the dessert too, M&M's.e G
After all the excitement we came back to campus and got some coffee, walked around a bit more (nervous energy much?), and then went to see the most unromantic movie that I've ever seen. :P And that was pretty much it :)
