True story :) I'm pretty much stoked/the happiest girl in the world!
Tyson proposed last Friday at Madeline's Steak House in South Jordan, Utah. It was the most elaborate thing I have ever seen in my life, and it was amazing!
Here's how it went:
I went up to Provo/West Jordan on Friday and spent the majority of the morning with Dani. We went to the mall and to Walker's Bridal just kind of puttering around. I had asked her if she had seen the ring yet, and she said, no she hadn't. Meh, no biggie. :)
Tyson came and picked me up in Provo and we went and met both of his grandparents, which was really cool. They are really similar to my grandparents, so that was definitely fun. And like, 4 times he had said, "I'm sorry the ring isn't ready, soon though, I hope!" And really, I'm totally okay with it! I'm not too worried about it!
So, we go back to Tyson's house, and change to go to dinner at Madeline's. We get there, order our food, and then the hostess comes and hands me an envelope. I looked at Tyson, and he says, "just read it." So I do, and its a really sweet letter, and he says that he just wants to make this night special. *side note: even in the letter, it says, sorry the ring isn't ready! *
So, then he excuses himself to "use the restroom" and he comes back and says "Some guy told me I dropped my key, but it isn't mine." He hands me the key and its a Volvo key! "Aww, just like Jaker's key when you guys broke down in Vegas!"
THEN, some guy comes and pours a bag of Starbursts on our table. I kinda grin at him, and he says again, "I'm just trying to make it special!" *another side note: We roasted Starbursts together with Sue and her now-husband, and that's basically when we knew we loved each other*
So THEN, another guy comes and drops off a box of Oreos. Okay, I LOVE Oreos! So he says, "We're going to make another memory with the oreos." Still, I'm thinking, He doesn't have the ring, he's just being cute, and I love it!" So he tells me to close my eyes, and think of my favorite memory. Then he says, "Okay, open your eyes!" And there he is on one knee, and he says "Tara Jex, will you marry me?"
And then out of the woodwork comes his parents, Dani, Jakers, and his 3 other best friends with cameras and it was crazy!
Oh, it was wonderful! Its a beautiful ring :) I love it, and he picked it out on his own, which makes it even better :)
We're getting married on October 30th in the Oquirrh Mountain Temple, and I couldn't be happier! We're really excited for this awesome step in our lives.
