Ok...so...I can't possible tell everyone the story, so I figure the easiest way to go about it is to just write it all out and you can all read it at your leisure. So, here goes nothin...

I went to lunch at the Pub with Sarah at about 11:30. After eating about two fries, my server (Lindsey) brings a gift bag to the table. In the gift bag was the following note:

"welcome to the day you will not soon forget
you won't have to work, I took care of it.
The night is set, for your hand I will take;
but firt, you have a few stops to make.
So pay for your meal, and step outside,
Go and drive off in a sleek new ride."

accompanying the note was a box that had car keys in it!

So, I'm crying already, and can barely think straight - I was downright embarrassing...

I walk outside and there's a GORGEOUS powder blue Mustang!

Taped to the steering wheel was the next note:

"What you need first is a new dress and shoes.
You may go wherever you life, get whatever your choose.
You have until 2:45 so you'd better get hoppin'
Here are some guidelines to help in your shoppin':
The night is formal; I'm in black, red and white
Word is that Dress Barn has something for this midsummer night.
Just before time is up, head to Vicky's hush-hush
Don't open 'til later, it will make Sarah blush."

Accompanying this note was some money for my shopping trip! :)

SO, we go to the mall and shop for a dress and shoes...which was actually pretty stressful because the Dress Barn didn't have the dress that I wanted in my size, and everywhere in the mall had dresses that were either just all black or weren't formal enough. As time got down to the wire I decided to just get the dress that I really wanted even though the only one they had was like two sizes too big. I quickly picked out some heels from Aldo and got to Vicky's a little late :-/

He had picked out something for me, that I didn't open - as instructed- that also came with a binder that had this note in it:

"Now that you've finished your shopping spree,
It's time for you to be treated like royalty.
Tonight's your night; it's your time to shine,
So head to the spa out on Alpine.
As I said before, you need not fret,
There is not one thing that I did forget.
In the trunk is nearly all you require,
To complete the ensemble just add your attire."

along with directions to the spa.

So, I get to the spa (p.s. driving a Mustang on the freeway is AMAZING!) and they're like "you must be Kelsey" "yea..." "Well a certain gentleman has a full day planned for you. You'll start with a massage, then a facial, then you're going to get your hair styled, a manicure, and we'll finish up with your makeup."


So I spent the rest of the day relaxing and getting pampered at the spa, which was AWESOME.

So once I'm already to go (which required quite a few pins in my dress) the ladies at the spa gave me the last note:

"The time is now short, soon we will meet,
At a restaurant downtown
where the night will be complete.
In the 1913 Room I sit and wait,
For the arrival of my lovely soul mate."

So, I get to this place, and it's like a restaurant out of the movies...we're talking 4 star, crazy nice restaurant. I'm led into this big room and Adam's standing directly in front of the entrance up some stairs. At this point I've already started to cry again. And of course seeing me cry got him all choked up, so he's standing there trying to do his schpeel - telling me how I'm his best friend and whatnot (I can't honestly remember what he said, I was so not mentally there I couldn't focus on what he was saying at all)- finally he gets down on one knee and asks me to marry him.

Well of course I said yes!

So I finally compose myself and then he gets this huge smile on his face and waves to someone behind me, and I'm like "who are you waving to?" and I turn around and my parents and his parents are sitting at a table in the back corner of the room standing and clapping. They were there the whole time, they were in on it all...

I lost it.

Nearly collapsed.

I don't think I've ever been so surprised, or happy, in my life.

After I composed myself again and we ordered our meal, we went back down the stairs and joined the parents. And the six of us had enjoyed the best meal I have ever eaten in my life. Accompanied by a bottle of champagne that an anonymous table sent to us :)

AND Adam's parents got me a beautiful double cross necklace as a "welcome to the family" present.

After dinner we all went to check out the Mustang and then my mom sent Adam and I on a carriage ride around downtown. The parents left, we went to the hotel, and that was my day in paradise.

I seriously went through the whole day in such a haze...it was all so surreal...

I'm still slowly coming back to reality.

Well, that's the story...I told you it was long! But it is by far the best story ever. I love him.

I'm also going to take this opportunity to thank everyone in advance for all of the congratulations, because I'm sure I won't be able to post on everyone's walls. So thank you!

And I can't wait to see you all!

Hopefully I have pictures to add to this soon...unfortunately I wasn't prepared with a camera for the day, so I have to rely on the pictures that Sarah and my mom took.

P.S. To Sarah and Nicole: thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you...a million times over. The day couldn't have happened like it did without you.

P.P.S. I hate and love all of you who have been lying to me for so long! haha ;)

I'm engaged! I'll post the whole story when I have time :-D

So, it's been a LONG time since I've been on livejournal...mostly because I felt like a lot of people were no longer writing on here...boy was I wrong! I missed out on a ton, and I would like to apologize to all of my friends who've been spilling their hearts out on here only to get no response from me - I promise it wasn't because I didn't care, I just didn't know! :(

I suppose I should clue everyone in to what's been going on in my life. The "hot news," I suppose, is that my boss tried to fire me (RA) for ridiculous reasons...I fought it, and won, and then promptly quit because there was no way I was going to go back to work for her after all the bullshit she put me through. So, I'm currently living in campus west with Adam, Zobl, Ravi, and Kristin (although, not really...because we haven't seen her in about two weeks...). It's a little cramped, but we're making do until we move out at the end of the month. Adam and I picked out our house, which was definitely an exciting experience! I like this whole knowing where we're living feeling, haha. I'm so excited to move into the house, it's big and nice and it's going to be so much fun! I'm working at the Pub and at the pool on campus teaching lessons a lifeguarding...that's all going fairly well. There are some days when I ask myself why I didn't just go home - because I'd probably be making more money and spending less, but it's worth it to have a place of my own, and I'm getting everything set up so that next school year is awesome! I'm going to be lined up for some good jobs during the year because I stayed up here and it's given Adam and I the chance to gradually work up to the whole moving into a house together thing. Adam and I are doing really well, I honestly don't know if we've ever been happier. The fourth of July wasn't quite what I was hoping for...but I have reason to believe that the next step in our relationship is going to be taken in the near future.

I guess I don't really know what to talk about, it's kind of sickening - but I don't really have that much to complain about...which is, of course, what livejournal is usually used for.

My only complaint is that I can't wait for the school year to start again. And I know most people probably think that I'm crazy for saying that, but I miss everyone. It's so much fun to have everyone together in one place...and that's just hard to orchestrate during the summer.

I suppose I have one more thing to "complain" about. It's not really a complaint, more like just something that isn't as happy as the rest of my entry. I realized recently that I've lost touch with people that I really miss...specifically Tabithah, Shana, Christine Lindsay, and Claire. Tab and I talk every now and then, but I wish it was more often - which is admittedly just as much my fault as anyone else's. Shana has practically fallen off the map, I haven't heard from her in a REALLY long time...the only news I get is when I talk to Tab and ask about her. I've been able to see Christine a couple times this summer, but nearly enough - I miss our long talks, and I feel bad because judging from her entries lately - she's needed a friend. I wish she would call me in times like that. My lack of seeing Lindsay and Claire will hopefully be rectified next week because we have plans to get together when I go back home...but man do I miss those girls! We had so much fun last summer, and I can't wait for a trip down memory lane :)

Well, I suppose that's it for now...I'm actually at the pool right now and I've been sitting here writing this because no one's here for open swim. We never had days like this at Vets - it's such a joke here.

This entry has inspired me to get in touch with some people...so if you were mentioned in here don't be too surprised if you get a call from me over the next couple days!

Being done with this semester feels GREAT! And I'm super excited for the summer. I have an awesome place to live (for free!), the job that I wanted, Adam's around and also has a great place and an awesome job...Things are just happy :) Even thought my mom wants me to be home, staying out here is definitely the way to go. I'm so excited to not go back to Vets, lol.

OH...P.S. Sara (Adam's older sister) got engaged on Easter, and I'm going to be a bridesmaid! I'm so excited, the last time I was in a wedding I was like 5 years old and I was the flower girl, haha. It's gonna be so much fun :)

Ok, that's it, I'm going to go do nothing now! YAY!

My Psych class is a complete waste of EVERYONE'S time..I would include the prof herself, but I think she likes to hear herself talk - so I think she enjoys it.

I got an offer to be a summer ALA in South B. Kristin and Adam want me to live with them in Campus West. Both options have their advantages and disadvantages...I would much RATHER live in CW, but that would essentially be giving up almost $900 (because I would probably have to pay about $3-400 for the summer to live there and I would've been making $500 through the ALA job.) BUT the only reason I would want to be an ALA is for the money, and that's probably the wrong way to go into the job. I think kI'm going to talk to Orlando and get a better feel for what the job is like over the summer.

In other news...I still don't have a job for the summer...I need to get on that. I'm determined to find a waitressing job somewhere that will give me bartending training...I'm hoping for Applebee's or Peppino's...I need to get on that.

School has been hella crazy. Lots of tests and papers and other crap that I don't want to do.

I registered for my classes for next semester, and I got everything I wanted - so that's pretty exciting :)

I guess my life is pretty boring and I don't have much to talk about...

Oh yea, Adam and I went on a date to see TMNT last night and it was SWEET! I encourage anyone who ever watched TMNT as a child to go see the movie! :)

The RA/MA Banquet is tonight and I'm up for RA/MA of the year, and one of my programs is up for Program of the Year -- so we'll see how it goes!

Ok...I'm officially out of things to talk about.

Hope everyone's doing well!
