I know, I know. I am still in shock too. 
After dating for a good 9ish months, Kody asked me to marry him! Woohoo!
I am way way excited for everything, but everyone keeps asking me all about him.
So here we go.
Last October during my freshman year at BYU (that is probably the most cliche start to a marriage story HA), I went with my roommates to a football game. There were some guys sitting behind us and the whole night we all kinda goofed off. They asked us for our numbers by the end. Ya, they were pretty goofy guys but they were cute (especially the one with darker hair). A few weeks later we went on our first date to Slab pizza. Since then we have eaten a lot more pizza, laughed a TON, kissed a bunch, and have had so much fun doing dumb things and getting to know each other.
So fast forward to this past Friday. 
We knew for a little while that we eventually wanted to get married. On Labor day we went and looked at some rings (one of the funnest things I've ever done). Then a few days ago, he told me that he got one but it wouldn't be done for another week. I totally believed him. But turns out he was just being sneaky and actually had already bought it. Then Friday rolls around and he tells me that we should go out to dinner. Being the out-to-dinner lover that I am, I was down. After a classy dinner at Chili's, he says we should go on a drive up the canyon. Quick rewind to last spring, one day we got pizza and went for a drive up the canyon in Springville and found a super pretty secret spot and just chilled and ate pizza there. Okay, continue. 
"The sunset will be really pretty up there" he says. So we go.
Another rewind, when we first started dating we were talking about cooking and he told me that the only thing that he knew how to make was Cheerios. So I told him he should make me some, but then he would joke around and say "Nahh we have to be like super duper serious if I am going to make you a meal that classy." So that just became a dumb little inside joke thing between us. Okay, go again. 
So we are sitting in the car in our little spot, and he says he needs to get something from the trunk. (Okay at this point I am starting to get what was happening). Then he calls me over and in his trunk it's all laid out super nice. There are a dozen roses, and a bowl of cheerios! Then he got down on one knee and it was just about the cutest thing that has ever taken place.

I seriously cannot stop looking at this ring. He did such a good job getting it...it is way more than anything I ever could dream of. And so is he :) I couldn't be happier and I can't wait to marry my best friend. 
Time to put all that pinteresting to use!
