And if I'm given the chance to be a doll in his hands

BEST.
EASTER.
EVER.

This was my present:


Yep; I'm engaged!!

The story?

Well, it wasn't story book, but it's mine, and that's all that matters.

Aaron and I came home from a weekend in Auburn, and he began packing his things for basic. He asked me if I wanted to go to Walmart with him to get a few last minute things, and I said yes. So, we shop around, and then decide to go to Subway for dinner. Aaron asks me what I want, and JOKINGLY, I say I want a ring. We laugh it off, order, and come home to eat. While we were eating, we were watching Rock of Love, and the girls were choosing which rings they'd want if Bret chose them. Of course, I made some smart remark, and he just ignored me, like usual. He got up, went to his closet, came back to the living room. He asks me If I'm ready. I froze. He's standing there with something behind his back. He gets down on one knee, still had his hands behind his back, and I'm saying 'Are you serious? Is this for real?' And he pulls out a box, and opens it, and there sits the most beautiful ring I've ever seen. I immediately started crying. I was soooooooo shocked! I mean, we've talked about it before, but I didn't seriously think it was going to happen for a while. I obviously said yes, and am now the proud future Mrs. Altgilbers :)
