Well, Steven has done it again.....a wonderful proposal (only this time it was for the third time)!!! On Sunday morning, before going to church we were looking at the Sunday newspaper at his parent's house. How romantic, right? Of course!!! Anyway, we are going through all of the crazy stuff on sale this week and he says...."Tamara, something is missing." Before I knew it, he had the ring on my finger (very similar to the one pictured above) and he was down on one knee. It was all so quick, yet this was the moment I've been dreaming of for quite a while now. OK, maybe not while reading the comic section and the advertisements, but still...the fact that I said "yes" and actually felt more calm and more sure about something.....something so uncertain and so foreign to me. I've never been married and the thought of ever taking that step before was the scariest thing imaginable. But this time, things were different...and I was ecstatic.
Steven is the kind of man that every girl dreams of marrying....someone who loves them unconditionally, who is always thinking of you when he doesn't have to, who comes over uninvited when you look your worst (and still tells you how great you look), who takes time to notice your new outfit and tells you how wonderful and gorgeous you are, who insipires you to be better and to reach higher goals, who loves me for being me, who listens and actually wants to listen, who is himself and the man I am amazed by everyday.
Sometimes I don't know how I got so lucky. I've always said that I was God's favorite, and now I can truly say "I AM." To have a man as wonderful as he is, who has the greatest family one could ever be a part of...someone up there is looking out for me. Somewhere...Somehow, I have made right decisions. This is the best decision I've decided to make....the decision to get married. And I'm so excited to spend the rest of my life with him and spend every day making that decision the best it could be every day. How great it is to always have a companion by your side. Through thick and thin, come rain come shine, uphill and downhill, I've never been so sure, so excited, so stressed, so loved, so happy, and so faithful in all my life. I am one lucky gal!

There are no words to express how much I LOOOOOVE having my feet rubbed! I absolutely adore it when Steven rubs my feet and tickles my toes! I hope that doesn't gross anyone out, but it is SOOOO true!!
SO ... I went and got a pedicure this evening for the first time! It was quite the experience. First of all, the lady was from Vietnam. In summer school, we are reading about a Vietnamese family and I found out that I've been pronouncing the Vietnamese family's last name wrong the whole time!! Ya, that was embarrassing!!
Anyway, I was talking with this lady and she was actually pretty cool. Although I couldn't understand some of what she said to me (and made her repeat a few things several times), had my foot filed down until I was pretty sure there wasn't even any skin left to file, and watched her clip my small toenail down to practically nothing....I enjoyed myself. Maybe it was the warm foot bath. Maybe it was the grainy lotion she rubbed on my legs. Maybe it was the cool color of nail polish I chose. Maybe it was completely and utterly relaxing...and I enjoyed that. Even if it was only for a few minutes...
