HOLY COW - i'm engaged! :D hooray!

ok, here's what happened: my bf dave was coming home for a short visit to celebrate our 2-year anniversary (he's currently finishing up his last few months of graduate school in honolulu at uh-manoa) on wednesday. i picked him up from the airport at 8am, and when he walked up to see me he was carrying flowers he'd brought with him from hawaii! i was hugging him and saying hello and stuff, and he said, "let's get married." now, we've discussed it before so i just said, "yeah, let's get married!" as in someday :) and then he pulls the ring out of his pocket and says, "no, really. will you marry me?" AAAHHHH i still can't believe it. i was super surprised! it was extra-romantic because our entire relationship has been back and forth between airports, and also because he knew that my favorite place to visit when i was a little girl was the airport :) i love him so much. we're planning on getting married in late summer or early fall of 2010 so we can have time to save, plan and try living in the same time zone for once ;)

and with our whirlwind weekend (he left sunday morning!) i barely had time to work out. now it's back to the grindstone - i've got a marathon to train for!

yippee :D

    Wow, so you guys have been in a long distance relationship for a long time. That must be really difficult! And for it to have worked is amazing! If you guys can handle that then you can definitely go in for the long haul!

That's so amazing! I'm really really happy for you! That is so thoughtful how he asked you in the airport!

Oh but beware: when you have him around you all the time, you'll totally sacrifice your workout schedule. I do it for my boyfriend all the time. He hates running :( lol. Is he a vegetarian, too? I am, and my boyfriend LOVES to eat steak all the time. yuck. emoticon
