So....last time I blogged was the day that Ben proposed to me!!! We were at the beach taking family pictures on the balcony before we went out to eat. When it was time to take a pic of Ben and I, he got down on one knee asked me to marry him! I honestly had NO idea he was going to do that. It caught me so off guard - it took me a couple of minutes to realize that it wasn't a joke! :) He proposed with my Granny's diamond, which we recently got reset with a white gold band and added a diamond to either side. They were the diamonds from the earrings Ben bought me for our first Valentine's Day. I am the happiest girl in the world right now :)

Ben and I both agreed that we did not want a long engagement so we have already set the date - September 4, 2011. It is actually exactly 5 months from today! I have had a BLAST so far starting to plan everything. I have already bought my wedding dress, which I love. It is very unique and very "me". I had an idea in my head of the look that I wanted and so when I tried it on I knew it was the one :) I can't believe that I found it that quickly. It was actually the very first place I looked! I also have picked out the bridesmaid dresses (long, flowy, black) which was kind of a challenge too since my bridesmaids live all over and are ALL different sizes! We also have already found a venue. Our wedding will be in Spartanburg at a place called The Duncan Estate, which is beautiful :) It will be a small outside wedding so we have already started to pray for pretty weather...

It's 1:30 am I need to try to get some sleep.. :)
