Engagement & Ring Pictures

Sorry for the delay on posting the pictures, darlings! I've been crazy busy for the past few days. Now, before I get to the pics I thought I'd tell you how he asked me....

First, he brought me to Barnes & Noble and told me I could pick out anything I wanted and he'd buy it for me. Yeah, I know, isn't he wonderful? He knows me so well! Unfortunately, I'd bought several books about a week ago, so there weren't any I really wanted. However, there are about 6 that come out May 25th! Anyway, so instead I nabbed 3 soundtracks I can now write to: "How To Train Your Dragon," "Shakespeare in Love," and "Gladiator." They're all wonderful. I can't wait to really blast it and write =)

After that he took me to Abuelo's, a delicious Mexican restaurant, for dinner. Yum, yum! Then he brought me to the Roanoke Star:
It was there at the star that he asked me. No, for those of you wondering, he did not get on his knee. And before you all get fired up, I didn't want him to. I don't like that much attention centered on me, lol. It makes me feel awkward.

The first ever picture of Christopher & I
See how "cool" we're both being? We were in that flirty, pre-dating stage ;)
My ring! He picked it all out himself!

It's huge!
It's so tall! I keep scratching my face with it, especially when I wake up.
It also likes to get caught in my hair, LOL!
