Drama in the Bathroom!!

So this morning I was happily woke up by the familiar tune of Alexa calling me... however the person on the other end of the phone wasn't so happy. I guess in the hustle and bustle of getting ready in the morning, Alexa had a confrontation with her hairdryer. They duked it out, but eventually Alexa got her butt kicked and took a nice whack in the eye causing stitches and a hightened level of excitement. :) Okay in all seriousness, She pulled on her hairdryer and the plug cut her face open, and here are the awesome pictures to prove it. Keep smiling my love, now that we have a blog EVERYBODY will see our mishaps. haha. Until then, stay classy San Diego.

Well if you ask Alexa, it FINALLY came. However I thought that the timing was perfect and we are (finally) getting hitched. I (sean) have known for quite some time that Alexa was the absolute love of my life and finally mustered up the courage and bit the bullet... and I freaking couldn't be any happier. We plan on a December wedding somewhere in Utah and details are surely forthcoming. Well, we are bloggers now. Enough said.
I figured I would tell my version of the engagement... So I am in Indiana this summer working for APX and Alexa is amazing and comes out to see me every 3 or 4 weeks. during her trips, we generally go out to eat a lot and more or less hang out with James and Megan. When she first came out here, a co-worker of Alexa's gave her a list of fun things to do in Indiana. I didn't know such things existed... but among the museums and things was a place called Amish Acres. It was about an hour away and it was a retired Amish farm turned tourist attraction. After 2 trips out here and with the engagement awaiting, I decided that I would surprise her by taking her to Amishland. She was so stoked! Walking around the 200 year old homes and around this farm was amazing. The tours were interesting and we had a great time learning and just being around each other. After one of the tours, we were free to walk all around the farm. We entered into a 200 year old tiny house and found ourselves alone. I sat down on an old rocking chair and brought her to sit on my lap. After a few minutes of talking, I dropped the question and pulled out her ring from my jeans pocket. It was burning a hole in it all day and I just couldn't wait any longer. I am pretty sure she was surprised and I am just so lucky that she said yes. :)
