sunday night excitement leads to girl yelling "SHUT UP!"

how do you like my fake newspaper headline? :)

the weekend was good, although exhausting. bfff was taking a gun class all weekend, so i had the joy of spending two long days with our puppies. our extremely excited, full of energy, like to wake up early, puppies. they were actually fairly well behaved and somewhat manageable.

sunday night rolls around and we get home from a nice dinner out with my parents. we debate on taking the dogs for another walk, and opt to let them play for a bit. bfff says "hey we should record them playing & send a video to my parents!" so i say "ok", thinking it's a great idea because they haven't really seen mia in action yet. i move the coffee table out of the way while bfff positions the camera and does some test recordings.

so he starts recording and the dogs are just laying there hanging out. not playing or doing anything. which they NEVER do. it's nearly impossible to get them to sit still for 5 seconds unless they are exhausted. and he says something like "well, since the dogs aren't playing, i have a question to ask you..." i'm kinda laughing, thinking he's just joking around, and then he starts getting on one knee and i'm like "SHUT UP!" (as in, "no way i can't believe this is happening"....not like "be quiet"). i'm starting to freak out and squeal and laugh and cry...and he pulls out the most gorgeous ring and he asks me to marry him!!!!! of course i said (screamed) YES!!! and give him a big hug & smooch.

we are giddy with joy and SO very excited! excited doesn't even begin to describe how i'm feeling.

sooooo i guess my acupuncturist was right....i'm starting on a big adventure after all!
