Today is my birthday, so since it fell on a Sunday we decided we would go out the night before to dinner to celebrate. He text me earlier in the day and said we were going to Made in Brazil for dinner (similar to Tucanos, for those who don't live in St. George). He picked me up (late) and we headed that way. I was excited to go there because I was starving and they have really good food!! When we got to the restaurant we walked in and the Hostess said you ready? Would outside be OK? Tipper said yes and I kinda didn't want to because I always freeze when I eat. There was a table set for two! There was also a band playing outside. We sat down then went and got our food from the salad bar and went back to the table. Well of course I was freezing so Tipper asked me if I wanted him to go get his sweat shirt out of the truck. I thought that was a great idea, so he headed to the truck and I started working on my food. My back was towards the band. All of the sudden I heard my name over the microphone. I turned around and he is up on the stage with his guitar. He sang me "She's Every Woman" by Garth Brooks. (A song we've danced to before!). As he was singing the meat people were coming around asking me if I wanted meat, I just kept saying sure. Then an old man came and stood in front of me and asked if that was my boyfriend. It was funny!! After the song was over I walked over to him and he got down on one knee and asked if I would marry him. I was crying so I nodded!! Then we hugged and kissed and he gave me the ring (which I was so excited I took it and put it on myself!!) Then we both cried, hugged, kissed! I kept looking at my ring, cause I was shocked. We had looked at rings and I had loved this one, but thought it was too much so I thought we decided on a different one!! ITS GORGEOUS!!! It was perfect!! I didn't eat much dinner after that cause I was in shocked and kept looking at my hand (I still keep looking at it!). The best part is we have it all on video, thanks to his brother Jeff who filmed it. I didn't even notice Jeff there till after.
I am so excited and so HAPPY!! I can't explain how much I love Tipper. He is so incredible. He makes me a better person! He is hilarious (although, I try not to tell him that too much cause I don't want him to get a big head ;)!) He always keeps me laughing. I can't imagine my life without him. He is my everything!! I can't wait to spend eternity with him!!! I love you Tip!!
This is us right after!!!
If I can figure out how to post the video, I will!!
Now the wedding planning begins!! 3 months isn't far away!! I am going to need everyone's address!!
