It's Official, They're Engaged!!!!!

My sister Jenny and her boyfriend Ryan have been dating for about 41/2 years. They finally decided to get married. They picked a date, venue, band, photographer, florist, etc..... all that was missing was the ring. There was no way to really surprise her since she already new it was coming, so we had to go about it like it was a normal day. My mother and I were responsible for setting the scene and my aunt came along for the fun of it. It was a normal Thursday night and they decided to go to dinner, nothing unusual about that, and while they were gone, we secretly went into the house and set the mood. Flowers, candles, balloons, rose pedals, chocolate, and of course the 1 1/2 carat rock to put on her finger. It was so fun and exciting and I don't think I had been that nervous in a very long time. Everything went perfect and of course she said yes!
