Rebecca is Engaged!?

My lovely best friend Becky Hughston is ENGAGED!!!!!! Yeah I know it's pretty dang awesome! Josh popped the question over Spring Break, and since then we have been celebrating like crazy! All of us girls are so so so excited for them:)
The Engaged Couple

Ok so after asking Becky if I could, I am going to share with you all the wonderful engagement story (future hubby, whoever you may be, please take notes).

Josh and Becky had traveled to Indiana, where Josh is from, to spend some time with his family.  On Friday Josh told Becky that he was going to go have lunch with his Dad, and then go and see his old Youth Pastor.  Totally normal so Beck thinks nothing of it.  She goes to lunch with his mom and then they get pedis.  After coming back to the house Becky and Josh's mom were just hanging out and watching TV when the doorbell rings.  His mom asks Becky to come to the door with her, which is totally weird, Becky doesn't live there so why would she answer their door?  Outside of the door is a man that Becky does not know, and he gives her a rose and a card.  He then said "OK, come with me." Becky was completely confused.  All she said she kept thinking was "Stranger Danger. You should not go anywhere with a Stranger."  But his parents kept telling her to go so after reading the card and realizing it was from Josh, she headed out to a limo.  

The limo then took her to a hotel in the area, and when she got out there the driver gave her another rose with another card.  This card gave her directions on where to go in the hotel.  She ends up at the hotel Spa.  There the ladies (who were very excited to see her) gave her yet another rose and card.  This one told her that she would be enjoying a one hour fully body massage! Is she lucky or what?!

After thoroughly enjoying her massage, she got dressed again and to find another card and rose.  This one led her to a room where she could get ready for the night.  Now get this: He bought her a new dress and shoes for the night! And she loved them! How amazing is he? He also had brought all of her makeup from home and things to get showered with.  So she got all dressed up to meet him in the lobby.

He finally greets her with some more roses and they started their night together.  He led her to a horse drawn carriage that took them through downtown Indianapolis.  They then went to a VERY nice restaurant for dinner.  All this time Becky has caught onto what is going on and wondering when he is going to pop the question...

After a great dinner they headed out and were walking around "the circle"in downtown where the monument is.  Her heels kicked off, his jacket around her shoulders, and great conversation.  Thats when it happened!!! He got down on one knee and said these exact words to her:
Becky, I love you so much. 
I wanted to show you tonight how special you are and how much I love you.  
I just hope that I can spend the rest of my life showing you how much I love you.  
Will you marry me?
Yes she remembered everything he said. How cute is that? And of course her response was YES!!!!  He gets up they hug they kiss and then he puts the ring on her finger.  And people let me tell you that ring is AMAZING!!!! Like seriously I was blown away.  He designed it himself and it is absolutely perfect!!!

To make everything even more perfect, Josh had his brother video the entire day.  He got her getting in and out of the limo, the carriage ride, dinner, the proposal, and even them changing their Facebook statuses together. How awesome is that?!

I am so happy for the two of them, and cannot wait to go through all of the wedding planning and the wedding with them! This is going to be the best year ever:)
