I'm amazed at how quickly my family can plan things like weddings. It's been a little over two weeks since I got engaged, and I've already got a place, a date, a reception place, and a pastor. Holy crap.

Okay. The wedding's going to be held in Corning, on August 9th of this year. Soon, I know, but it's the only summer we'll have when Aaron and I are both out of school for the next couple years. It'll be held in the Corning Presbyterian Church.... and yes, I realize I'm Methodist. I just don't like the Methodist church in Corning, for personal reasons that have nothing to do with the congregation. The reception's going to be held at the Corning Armory, which is non-air-conditioned but pretty nice.

And the guy who's marrying us is Pastor Dean McPhearson, the man who helped me tell my folks about everything going on with me as a teenager.

So. I'm getting married in a Presbyterian church, by a Methodist minister, to a Catholic.

....I find that incredibly amusing.

Okay, so as most of you know, my birthday was yesterday. ^_^ Had a great day despite classes; got everything done, didn't stress about anything, and I knew that I would be able to go out with my boyfriend that evening!

After he picked me up from class, my roommates got me all prettied up for our dinner; he was taking me to Biaggi's in Cedar Rapids, which is where he took me for my birthday last year. ^_^ Many wonderful memories there, but anyway. We went all dolled up, had a magnificent dinner complete with a tasty caramel dessert, and headed home.

On the way home, I told Aaron that I just couldn't be happier...

...and he told me to close my eyes, and slipped a box into my hand. I opened it, and saw this gorgeous tri-cut emerald ring in the velvet.

He asked me to marry him!!!!!!!!! And I said yes. ^_^ So, as of yesterday at about 10:45.... I'm engaged!

Talk about a wonderful birthday present. ^_^ I haven't been able to stop smiling since!
