The Proposal

How many people can actually say that they had a positive, life-altering experience in front of a toilet? lol I can... as that is exactly how Jacob proposed! =)

We went to the coast for the 4th of July weekend. His parents have a vacation home/rental on the beach... it's gorgeous! Anyhow, our plan was to go down to Yachats on Saturday to watch the fireworks, and get there early to find a good spot to sit and have a little BBQ before the show started. Apparently Jacob's original plan was to ask on the beach before/during/after the firework show... but the weather SUCKED! It was cold and misty... Jacob's glasses were covered in a thin layer of water that wouldn't go away. We were under a blanket during the show and couldn't wait to get back in the car and back to a warm, dry house.

When we got back I decided to take a hot bath to try to warm up. Jacob started to the water for me and started to get ready for the feeling to come back into my toes! lol A couple minutes later he came back into the bathroom, got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! lol... my response was, "Are you kidding??" I was in total shock... was not expecting it at ALL. It took me a good 10 minutes to actually say yes.... after he reminded me that I hadn't actually answered yet! =)

He proposed to me with his grandmother's wedding/engagement ring... unfortunately my fingers were too fat for it and resizing it would cost a bit too much and may damage the band since it's already been resized and it would have to go up at least 2 sizes for me, so a few days later we went shopping for a new ring.
