Wee Bit Wednesday :)

{one} have you ever been stuck in an elevator?
Nope! One morning at work, however, our power went out and two people who work upstairs did get stuck in the elevator. They were pretty freaked out, as I would be!

{two} have you ever ridden on an elephant?
Never. I'm scared of heights, so I don't even think I'd want to, haha. A horse is tall enough for me!

{three} have you ever met a well known celebrity?
I have not! Unless you will count a local celebrity :)

{four} do you have any food allergies?
I'm pretty sure I don't.

{five} do you know how to sew?
I can sew by hand, and have for years. I really wish I had a sewing machine though!

{six} did you get an allowance when you were young?
haha, no to this question as well! I was jealous when my friends received allowances!

{seven} how often do you fill up your gas tank?
I honestly don't keep track anymore. A full tank lasts over a week though.

{eight} have you ever been stung by a jelly fish?

{nine} have you ever been robbed?
no, thank the Lord!

{ten} what is the worst haircut you’ve ever had?
Ugh, 11th grade!! It was about a week before we took pictures, too! I was having it cut into a bob and the lady couldn't get it straight so she kept cutting more and more off to try and even it out!! I felt hideous!! ...and now it's recorded in that stupid yearbook for all to see :/

Now join in and link up at Leigh Ashley's :)

Nope, but I'd love to experience it some day in the future! Haha, I'll probably hold on for  dear life, b/c I'm scared of heights!

I went to two differnt high schools. My freshman year, we were some type of Indian..haha, can't remember, but at my other high school we were the Warriors (also and Indian)...there seemed to be a theme goin!

Check it out at!

My goodies:

PS... There's gonna be a giveaway soon!! :)

I'm Engaged! YAY!

hehe :)

My boyfriend .... excuse me...fiance, who was formally just my boyfriend, proposed to me this past Wednesday. I am ecstatic, obviously! :)

...and I took an uber amount of photos of my beautiful ring, which I will share with my lovely blog friends....

Now, let me tell you how he did it!
I came home Wed evening from a mini beach vacay with my mom and sister. When I got home there were post it notes everywhere! ...on the walls, the doors, the tv, the mirrors... and they each said something different. Ya know, various I love you's, you're my bestfriend, I hope we're together forever, etc. :) sweet!

He wasn't home yet though. I thought for a split second, what if he's gonna propose, and threw that out the window as soon as I thought it.

Then he got home and asked if I had counted them. Um, nope! So I did. I plucked them off the wall one by one and counted a total of 20. Then he tells me there are supposed to be 21! As he's looking around in the kitchen for the last one, I'm asking if he's sure he counted correctly and all that jazz and he says "yes, there are 21." Next he asks me to look in the bedroom again. As I'm coming out of the room to tell him there are no more, he comes walking up w/ good ol' #21 post it stuck to his chest that reads "The key to my heart" with a picture of a key drawn on.

...and once again, I think to myself, maybe he's gonna propose? ...and toss it back out the window... I'm hugging him, it feels as though he's quivering, and he says..."Crystal...." At that point, I was thinking, OMG, Is he seriously about to ask me to MARRY him?! He then gets down on one knee and, well, you know the rest :) .... I said YES!

I know that's a lot of text, but that's my cute story. And believe me, he's not the creative type, so I was extremely proud of him!

Now....more pictures of my beautiful ring...that HE picked out!
