Will you marry me?? ...

I remember the day, as if it was yesterday.  Waking up to go downtown to meet my co-worker (our company "photographer") to get some pictures taken of us for Chad's family (for Christmas).  I remember being MORE than a bit annoyed as we were already running late when Chad exclaimed that we still.. absolutely, positively, without a doubt, HAD to run by the restaurant to pick up his sunglasses?!!? that he had "forgotten".  Didn't he realize we were LATE?!?!  This whole time, I had no idea what was coming my way..  (turns out the "sunglasses" he had forgotten was actually my ENGAGEMENT RING that he had stored away at the restaurant)

This whole time, I was unknowingly playing along with this entire SCHEME.. thought up and played out perfectly by this man I now call my husband.  What a sneaky little trickster he is..

Three years ago, on this very day...amongst rows and rows of beautiful red and white flowers at the Dallas Farmers Market, Chad got down on his knee and asked me to be his bride..  (well technically, he never asked... he was too choked up to mutter a sound and just showed me the ring, clasped tightly in his hand, while I said "SHUT UP CHAD!!  SHUT UP!!  hahahahha... happily of course.. )
