Back from Vegas with a FI!!!!!

I'M FINALLY ENGAGED!!!!!!!!!!!!!I have never been happier in my life. I didn't think I would be as crazy excited as I am! I've been floating on Cloud 9 ever since we got back.Here's what happened!I packed for my surprise weekend trip and we left for the airport Friday. When we were checking in, the luggage guy ruined the surprise by yelling out FI's last name and then, "To Vegas, right?" I knew it!!!So we got there, and he had a limo waiting to take us to our hotel. It pulled up to...The Bellagio! We checked in and I found out we had a giant suite overlooking the water show. It was amazing.The whole weekend is a blur...we went to our favorite restaurants, got a couples massage, played blackjack...and he didn't propose until the very last night! We saw a Cirque du Soleil show at The Mirage (The Beatles LOVE, very cool!) and got back to our rooms around midnight.We were laying on the bed, talking about the weekend and he said he had such an amazing time. Then he said that he knew we would continue to having an amazing time for the rest of our lives!He got up off the bed and pulled me off too. Then, at midnight, just as the water show outside our room was starting...he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. He pulled out the most gorgeous ring I have ever seen (and I should know, I picked it out, haha!)I have been looking at my hand every 5 seconds. And my cell has been glued to my head ever since. Here are some pictures! :)

    Yay for asscher twins!!!!!!!!!!!  It is not a very common cut, so I was like, wow, cool, I LOVE that ring!  Aren't you just obsessed with it?????  I look at mine every 5 minutes to this day, and it's been on my finger 8 months now!  So funny. Are you still headed out to this lovely part of the country soon?
