Epic Fail, 21st Birthday and Engagement Ring Bliss!

Epic Fail:
I am sitting in an empty classroom (well minus myself and some English guy to my right) wallowing in my epic fail moment. I thought I was getting to class an hour early today, so I could sit in silence and finish and assignment I know will not get done this weekend. As I finish the assignment about 45 minutes after I arrive I find it odd that my classmates are not here yet. Usually my obscenely huge Statistics class (with 100 students and 90 seats) fills up relatively early. As I REALLY start to ponder what the crap is going on here I realize, my class starts at 7 not 6! What is wrong with me? I had time to go and get dinner and maybe take a nap, but NOOO I had to have a major brain fart the day when I need food and a nap the most.

21st Birthday & Engagement Ring Bliss:
At least this'll give me some time to catch up on my bloggy friends on what's been going on in my neck of the woods (even though I am having this strange suspicion my blog is being boycotted... maybe I am just being paranoid?). This past weekend was very relaxing. I spent it all with T because it was his 21st birthday! He is so old, and in 2 weeks I will be 20, an even scarier thought. Anyway, we stayed local and on the day of His birthday we went to Robbins Brothers, where he let me pick the ring of my dreams ( I am serious, I asked what price range should I stay in and he said, "Price doesn't matter baby, pick the one you love." Oh my gosh, isn't that boy a keeper??) So I found this BEAUTIFUL Tacori ring. There are no words to even describe it, I put it on and my hands started to shake, it was the ONE. Now, the next steps are to look for the perfect diamond (this weekend we will be in Vegas so we will browse to find a good deal on a loose, princess cut, diamond of love), and then it will be official proposal time!! I am so freaking anxious. I want it around my finger NOW!

Then on Sunday we went to Universal Studios. Sadly I didn't bring my camera so I have no pictures (It actually turned out as a blessing, the first ride we went on we got soaked! And that is no exaggeration). We had fun there, the back lot tour is our absolute favorite. We left sort of early but we spent the rest of the day eating, cuddling and watching "Billy the Exterminator". Does it get any better than that?

Sadly, my plan for his birthday present slightly fell through. I was planning on buying him something extraordinary and surprising him with it a couple days before his actual birthday, but that didn't happen for a particular reason ( I cried and cried, I had everything all planned out, and I was crushed I couldn't make it happen) but I will be surprising him with it sometime soon and he will be amazed! 

I shall share more news as it comes in! I hope you all have an amazing rest of the week and weekend. I'll be sending my love from Las Vegas (seems like Vegas has become our second home lately)!

Proposal?!? Oh my!! I can't wait for all the details! :)

I am so jealous of you going to Vegas! I want to go SOOOO bad, but I can't talk John into it! (I really wanna go because of Garth Brooks playing there ON my birthday, but he won't take me!!)

I feel like my blog's being boycotted too...but I've been a horrible poster/commenter, etc. lately so that's probably why. :(

Eeeekkkkk!! I'm so excited for you! Getting engaged is so much fun and picking out the ring is always the best part! :) Sorry if I've been bad about reading/leaving comments lately...I've barely even been posting cause my hubby's home on leave and we've been spending lots of quality time together. I promise to be better soon though!! Congrats girly!!

Yayyyyy, so so so so exciting! Can't wait to hear the story of how he does it! And I'm right there with you, I know my sailor has mine with him right now and all I keep thinking is that I want it on my finger already-I'm too excited! Have so much fun in Vegas, I'm jealous! And I know how you're feeling about being boycotted, I think it's happening to everyone-life just keeps getting in the way of sharing blog love! :)
