Ha, ha! Yes, it is true. Arthur proposed to me about a week ago. That is why I haven't been posting as frequently. I had to be sure and inform all of my family before hand.
He asked me the day of the opening of a new mall here in San Antonio. My ring is a solitaire, white gold and the diamond is a round. I'll have a picture up later. Right afterwards we went out to eat at a nice Italian restraunt at the mall and ordered Champaign. We were obviously the first people to order Champaign there. No one was sure what selection they had and it took them awhile to get us a bottle. The hostess asked Arthur what the occasion was when he went to the restroom. After he told her about the engagement the manger came and the chef came to congratulate us. The manger told us the entire meal was for free. That was quite a shock considering we didn't go cheap. It was very exciting!
Since then I've been trying to inform everyone of the engagement. The blog has come last on the list. We went to Brenham this weekend and Arthur asked my father for my hand in marriage when I had my mom distracted in the other room and then we switched. My parents were happy! It was wonderful. We celebrated with more Champaign.
Now I am preparing to move in and planning changes for the house. Yes, first it is time to paint! Arthur said that he thought his house was fine until the engagement. What can I say, its my first time in my life that I have been told that I have complete control over decorating of a house. This will be fun:)
