"The night before we went shopping at Harmons to get stuff for breakfast. We got strawberry syrup(for pancakes), snacks and ham. We wanted breakfast size hams and the lady cut steak size hams. Brian and I had a good laugh at the sounds of the machine cutting the ham. Brian had no money because we went to dinner and a movie that night, so he had to get another $20.00 from the bank. He had spent $60.00 that night, which was bad because we are trying to save money. The news kept announcing that it was going to snow Sunday morning, but Brian was persistant to go.
Sunday morning, I cleaned up not thinking to get too dressed up because we were just having breakfast and listening to conference. Brian arrived at 8:30 am and we packed and loaded up and left. We drove down to Draper/Riverton to the road that over looks the valley. We pulled over to start breakfast. Brian got out and tried to get the griddle lighted. I was so cold, so I sat in the truck and waved to passing bikers and trucks that passed us by. After a 1/2 an hour of trying, Brian finally gave up. We would just have to cook pancakes and ham back at Brian's house. We drank our Chug chocolate milk and ate neon sour gummy worms, crackers, cheese and beef jerkey.
We laughed, talked and listened to General Conference. We both kind of dozed off during one of the talks. At the end of conference, Brian said he wanted to hang around for a little bit. By now it was snowing! He started asking me questions about the future, kids, fights, etc. He then said he had a surprise for me and that I had to close my eyes.
I closed my eyes and could hear him pull something out of his jacket. He kissed me to let me know I could open my eyes. He reminded me of the night before that he told me that I couldn't take off my CTR ring unless he had something to replace it with. He then handed me the ring box and asked me if I would still marry him and that he had my replacement. I immediatley hugged him and didn't want to let go. I told him I loved him and asked him why he decided to propose in October instead of December? He told me that he made a quick decision to buy it and that it really didn't matter when we got engaged. We hugged and kissed and decided to head back to his house and have breakfast. He slipped the ring I picked out at Mike's Custom Jewelry the week before on my hand. I love Brian. He is just for me!"
