Sorry, there are no pictures of the actual engagement because his phone was dead and my camera was in my purse... at home. After he asked me, we sat on the wall by the temple and talked about the journey and the surprise and I sat admiring my ring in the sun. A Temple Square hostess came walking by and said, "Oh she finally came." After sitting for a few minutes Allen asked me if I wanted to go to Build a Bear. I had mentioned a while back that I had never been there and I thought it would be a fun date. We rode the train to the Gateway and walked in. The lady asked what we were looking for specifically and I told her we needed a Bride and a Groom bear. We told her we had just gotten engaged and she congratulated us and we went to find our bear. I found one that had hearts on the ears and the feet in pink and blue so I got the pink and Allen got the blue. We then picked a sound, mine makes kissing noises and his sings You don't know you're beautiful. We stuffed them and "bathed" them and then went to find bride and groom outfits. Mine came with a dress. garter, veil and bouquet, His with a tux where he could choose between bow tie and long tie. We dressed them and then went to fill out their birth certificates and give them names. Allen's alias is Sidshobob. He uses it as his username, email address, Wii character, etc. He was going to name his bear Sidshobob, but I had chosen to name mine Mrs. McDonald so he followed suit and named his Mr. McDonald.
After Build a Bear, he offered to take me to dinner, so we went to the Olive Garden where we both ordered Ravioli that was AMAZING! After dinner we decided to go to Arctic Circle, so Allen could fill up a mountain dew bottle and I could show off to my co workers. On our way, I saw that it was 10 to 6 so I asked him if we could stop by the bank first, since they were about to close. The bank is next door to Arctic, it's where all of my work deposits go and all of my accounts are there, so I'm pretty close with the 4 women who work there. We walked in and I showed off the ring. They heard the quick version of what happened and then we went to Arctic to show them. We then came home so I could change out of work clothes and get my purse. We then went to see my sister Kristina, his Aunt Jean, and his parents. I was very impressed with my surprise. I had a great day and I'm so happy that I soon get to be Mrs. McDonald. So for all of you that were worried about it being official, you can stop worrying. We are legitimately engaged. I'm so happy and I love Allen McDonald!!
