After the movies, Drew wanted dessert [like always] (although I wasn’t hungry) and we drove to Denny’s. Ahhh… Denny’s. By this time it was snowing a lot, especially sticking/good snowball making snow. There were SO many people there holy mackrel [a phrase I started using earlier that summer from Goop] (to borrow from Daniel) and we had our brownie a la mode (v.g.) and he asked if I wanted to go home yet (of course not). So we passed the Glenwood and went up to where I don’t know. Finally, I realized it as the base area of hiking the Y [something we wouldn’t do together for the first time for another year and a half]—where you go to park (there was only one other car there, still snowing!) and it was gorgeous! We got out and peered at the overlook of Provo (most was covered in snow/clouds/fog). We started talking and he soon brought up the past activities in the last few hours and why we did them/what they represented:
-Basketball game (Football games, and sports activities we’ve attended, ie first football game we went to together where I sat on his shoulders [a random memory, I am well aware])
-The Olive Garden (This was to celebrate [our two?] month [dating] anniversary, before we went ring shopping for the first time)
-Dollar movies (first couple of dates were constant hours on end watching movies, pretty much all were at home or at the dollar theater)
-Denny’s and the Infamous Brownie A La Mode (Our first date, of course!)
-Overlook up [in the] mountains (we would have [deep discussions up at] Squaw Peak and other high areas [in the mountains])
And to top it all off, it was snowing. It COULDN’T have been any more perfect. He mentioned the present he promised me on Tuesday and took out a small envelope. He then took out a small plastic bag with the ring…and proposed a “Would you marry me?”
Yes, it was PERFECT.
