So on Halloween, October 31, 2010..He did it!! Matt proposed after almost 4 years of dating!!! And I said...YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  This is how it happened:    We got up like we do every Sunday, I made coffee and me something to eat, while he slept in. Once he woke up he watched a little bit of the Cowboys game and said, "well if they aren't doing good by half time, I'm turning it off and we can go to town and eat lunch." So low and be hold they did not play well, so we drove to Fort Smith to eat lunch, we went to Marketplace as we were walking in he kept talking about wanting to go "frolick in the field" or just play outside as he said..I thought this was a little strange, because Matt never wants to do anything outside..So we went inside and ate, and as we are walking out, he says "lets go to the park, I want to play outside", and he says "its good to go walking right after you eat a meal" which I thought he was acting retarded and didn't think any thing about it..so as we drove to the park, I was telling him about what I thought we should wear for our engagement pictures, now mind that we are not engaged yet, but I have been talking engagement/wedding ideas and thoughts for the last couple of months because I knew this day would be coming, I just didn't know it was this particular day. So we drive to Carol Ann Cross Park in Fort Smith and we walk around to where the benches are... and we sit on this bench (pic below) and we sat for a minute just taking in the view, and Matthew stood up and said "are you ready for your suprise" and I said " I guess" and about that time he got down on one knee and took out a ring from his pocket, and said "Danielle, I love you so much, will you marry me? And then I lost it, I mean waterworks galore, so I cried for like 5 minutes, before I could say "YES" and then I cried for like 10 more minutes! Words can not begin to describe how completely and utterly happy I was in that exact moment...

So we finished walking around the park, as I adored my beautiful ring, even though I had picked it out a couple of months ago..I love it!!! And then went to the mall, yeah I know the mall, we need a breather before we went to tell our families... And so then I told everybody I knew, I mean the very first person I told was the mens Dillards cologne lady..I just couldn't keep it together....And here we are after we got home and calmed down...ha ha
