ENGAGED!!!

yes, that's right! i am engaged to Juan Carlos Gomez!! He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him last night in front of the Laie Temple and I said YES!! i know most of you have never met him so you are just gonna have to take my word for it- he is an incredible person. i can't wait for you all to meet him.
we are planning to get married in the St. George Temple in April 2009. we haven't picked an exact date yet so be patient with us.
it feels so different to actually be engaged- i didn't expect it to feel like this. I love it! today in church i got so excited to share my news in the 'good news minute' my little heart almost jumped out of my chest (maybe that was because there were so many flippin anouncements that she almost forgot to even do good news minute!). most of the people we have told so far have been pretty surprised at the news which surprised me. i guess it is not as obvious as i thought.
i love you, mi amor, and i can't wait to be sealed to you for time and all eternity!!

Amos - congrats again little sis! I can't believe the baby of the fam is getting hitched. I'm excited for you and looking forward to seeing you both in the near future. Enjoy engagement! Love you,

J

P.S. He must be the right one if your engaged blog directly follows one titled "squat summit"!

Yes Amy! So excited for you marriage is awesome. So glad Juan didn't get turned off by the summit incident. So where is he from? Write me an email with details about how you met and all that fun stuff. Oh ya could you wait until the first part of May because I won't be home until May 6th and I want to see your reception. Thanks! It's not a big favor right! Like the ring too!

Holy Moly! I have been looking all over the place for you too! And now you are engaged to boot! Okay, I'll stop with the exclamation points but I am so excited, both to hear from you again and to find out about your soon to be hubby that I could just bust! Congratulations Juan. You picked a GREAT one, and she isn't too hard to live with. =>

I'm so happy for you. Keep me posted.

Love Lance, Lindsay, and now Alex
