I AM ENGAGED! A surprise proposal by the lake at sunset is enough to make any girl swoon, but I gotta say that I couldn't be more thrilled because I am going to marry the most amazing guy ever! Brad put together the perfect evening- to my astonishment he kept everything a complete secret- we headed to dinner at the Gaylord Texan after the proposal where I was shocked (again) to find our families waiting with cameras and gifts for an amazing engagement dinner that I'll never forget. I'm still in shock!*****************
