the story

yesterday was an amazing day. here's the story: My sister and brother-in-law (Jessi and David) came into town Friday. We decided that we were going to go eat breakfast at Denny's at 10 on Saturday morning. After not getting much sleep Friday night (I slept on the couch and our dog Harley was whining all night) I get up Saturday morning and get ready. While in the shower my mom came and said that she had to go water some plants for some friends because they were out of town and she told me to be sure I was ready by 10, I was like ok. My mom gets back from "watering the plants" at about 10 and we all load up in the car to go to Denny's. On the way there she said she needed to stop by the church because she left her thumb drive there. So she goes inside and sends me a text that said "Hey Whitney. Come in here. I want to show you something." At this point my mind starts to wonder a little. I go inside and go into the sanctuary and my mom told me to look up at the screen. It said Matthew & Whitney and then a slideshow of pictures played. While I was standing there I was like this is it! After waiting for the long (maybe it wasn't that long but it felt really long!) slideshow to end (it said "there is just one thing I need to ask you") Matthew came down the aisle and got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! It was perfect! Of course I said yes! After we celebrated for a little bit with my mom, Jessi and David, and Kelsey (my little sister) we head to Denny's. When we get there it is super crowded but we didn't have to wait because Matt's parents and sister were already there! I had thought Matt drove down by himself. For the rest of the day I couldn't stop looking at my beautiful ring! It really was an amazing day and I really was surprised! Oh and when my mom went to go "water the plants" she was actually letting Matt into the church. So sneaky. She had known for about a month and she did a really good job at hiding it!
