I said YES!

I'm going to be Mrs Mitch Mann!!!!! Mitch asked me to marry him on Saturday and I said Yes!

The Story:

Mitch called me on Thursday the 28th and said he had to cancel going to Thriller with me on me to go winterize the houseboat down in Powell on Saturday. I told him it was okay and I could just go with my friends. Then he said that he would be going down alone and that changed my mind. There was no way I was going to not go with him. 4 hours alone down and back to Powell would suck. So Saturday rolls around and he comes to get me (after my brother and sister in law put the thought in my head that maybe he would be asking me) As we are driving I am thinking he would ask, then he said something about getting married in June and all hopes for him to ask me were gone!!!!! We get to Lake Powell and he gets 2 boxes out of the trunk, one of which he said was something to change out the "Flux capacitor" and yes I believed him thinking "I've heard that before must be a houseboat thing" So we start the walk to the houseboat and I of course after that long in a car need to use the bathroom. We get to the houseboat and he said the water was drained and I would have to walk back up to the little store thing and use it there. So I left and was gone about 10 minutes and came back, the door was locked....I walk around and check the back door, locked as well. I went back to the front door and it was open so I open the door and there Mitch was holding a dozen roses, 40 candles lit, 5 more dozen roses on the couch and he had changed into a suit!!!!!! He told me how much he loved me and that he wanted to make me dinner for me but we would start with dessert, got on one knee and pulled out a Ring Pop, asked me to marry him, I obviously said YES!!!! Then he told me my ring wasn't going to be done till the end of next week but he couldn't wait for a few reasons: 1 Saturday the 30th was exactly 1 year from the first day we ever met. 2, the house boat was getting some work done and it was going to be the last time he could porpose there this year and since our first date was in Lake Powell and he was there when I knew I loved him and the first time we talked about getting married was in lake powell (all 3 different trips, we are not that crazy!) he found it the exact right place to ask me! And he was right!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! After he asked me he made me dinner with all my favorite things to eat! He did everything PERFECT! I love him so much and can't wait to start our lives together!!!
