The Blog We've All Been Waiting For...

It happened.

Alex and I are officially engaged to be married.

So here is the story...maybe I won't have to repeat it fifty million times and I can just direct people to my lovely blog so that they can get the scoop.

My buddy, Ali, is a photographer and had expressed an interest to do some portraits of Alex and me. We headed down to Key Biscayne yesterday and went to different locations to take the photos. We ended up at the Lighthouse (El Farito for all the native Miamians)...however, we encountered a bit of a problem. It was closed. There happened to be a wedding going on. That didn't stop us. We have a rebellious streak. We jumped the fence and commenced with the picture taking. We found a nice spot with the lighthouse in the background, right next to the ocean. As luck would have it, the security lady found us and asked us what we were doing there and how we managed to get in. We muttered some excuses but she said we had to leave. Alex pleaded with the woman to let us take just two more photos. She reluctantly agreed.

This is when I noticed Alex fumbling with something in his pocket...I wondered what he was doing but didn't say anything. I was thinking, "He better stop messing around, we need to take these pictures and get the heck out of here!"
And then he looks at me and says, "Before we get kicked out..." (gets on one knee) "Will you marry me?"

Hugs and kisses were exchanged and I managed to let out an, "okay" as Ali snapped a bunch of pictures all around us.

Then we got kicked out.

Anyone who knows us, knows that this is the perfect Alex and Kristel engagement story. :-)

Photos of the proposal will most likely be posted up on myspace soon! So keep checking back.

Oh man, I'm so happy for you guys. I was wondering when he would ask you, lol. Anyway, yeah i get what you mean by telling people a certain way, i guess the verse after the one i wrote in my blog said to be careful how we express our words. But I don't think its how i say my words, maybe sometimes, but not everytime, but I'll keep a look on how i say things. Thanks.
