THEY'RE FINALLY ENGAGED!!!!
The best part? Debatable.
It might have been the Saturday seven days ago when Ryan asked Brenda to set three hours apart from her day for her and she knew they were getting engaged but she had a minor freak out session so it didn't happen.
Or it might have been the photo album Ryan showed Brenda in the park of the two of them (from EFYs to middle and high school dances, to various other life activties together) plastered with love sticky notes, the last one in the album reading... "But what does he have in his pocketses?" (a quote from none other than Lord of the Rings).
It might have been the part where Brenda, who had been swearing off surprises this whole time, WAS TOTALLY SURPRISED becuase she didn't think he should have anything in his pocketses, let alone a beautiful and very Brendaesque engagement ring!
It might have been the spying Elise and I did from our neighbor's house as Brenda and Ryan enjoyed a romantic dinner in our apartment.
But really, I think it was the part where Ryan, who has been getting advice from Elise this whole time said, hours before he popped the question,
"Now, you might not be able to help me with this one, but how do I propose without crying?"
Awwww, Ryan! Good boy!
Your fiance, in all my years of living with her, has never screamed so spontaneously, deafeningly, frequently, or ebulliently as she has been the last 12 hours.
