Favorite Post from the week
Earlier this week, thanks to this post by Jaime at Toby's Tails, I learned about TheShelf.com, a new website that you can save clothes and accessories to on your "shelf" to go back and look at. The website also tells you when things you added go on sale or get to a certain price that you are interested in. I'm hoping to check it out this weekend!

These are the last 2 posts for the Blog Every Day in May linkup, and I'm happy to be done. Although it provided some good ideas for writing, at times I felt it got to be a burden and I don't like when blogging feels like something I have to do instead of something I want to do.

Day 30, Thursday: React to this term: Letting Go

I'm keeping it simple for this one. A long time ago when I made my Teens Encounter Christ weekend, I learned this saying, and I try to think of it often when things are bothering me or worrying me. 



Day 31, Friday: A vivid memory

I'm going to share with you my memory of the night Ryan proposed to me...

In December of 2010, Ryan came to visit me once his finals were done before heading home for Christmas break. I had to work, so he came and got my apartment keys because he was going to make supper.  When I came home, I walked into an apartment full of candles and a delicious chicken alfredo supper.  I didn't think much of it, besides the fact that it was really nice and romantic of him to do this. When we had previously talked about getting engaged, we had talked about waiting until that following spring or summer, so I wasn't expecting it at all.

After supper, we played one of our favorite board games, Scrabble.  After the game was over, Ryan told me to close my eyes. When I opened them, he had spelled out, "I Love You" with the letters, and I thought that was cute. He told me to close them again, so I thought that we were going to play a little game to see what cute sayings we could spell out.

However, this time when he told me to open my eyes, he was on one knee, and the Scrabble board spelled out, "Will You Marry Me".  I was very surprised and super excited! It was such a cute proposal and I couldn't have asked for anything more special.
My candlelit apartment I came home to.


The magic question!


My gorgeous ring, that Ryan picked out all on his own!
