Rocks, Cookies, and The Constitution

Spoiler alert: Today, I am officially engaged! From what I can tell, there is no better feeling in the world, but something tells me this is just the beginning.
And now, for the deets. :)
Thursdays are mine & Caleb's day off together, so we always try to do something fun. When he first got to my house after class, I got a call from SE Needham saying his ring was ready (I ordered it a few weeks ago) and Caleb played it off like he was so upset that his ring was ready and mine still wasn't. 
But all day, something was off. I couldn't figure out why he was being so weird, but my mind was automatically assuming the worst. (He probably changed his mind and doesn't want to marry me anymore!) We went to lunch at Zupas & when we got back to Brigham, he had to go sit through a lecture on The Constitution so I went with him. (Pretending I was doing him a big favor, but really I'm a big nerd and a sucker for history.)
But even during the lecture, he was being weird and wouldn't even look at me.   When we left I was starving so I convinced him to go to McDonalds. Then while we were there, I got the bright idea to run to WalMart, and on the way there I asked him to stop at the Dollar Store. Caleb just kept laughing like he couldn't believe it, and I couldn't figure out why it was such a big deal to stop. I've never seen anyone down McNuggets as fast as he did tonight.(Later, I found out he wanted to propose right after the lecture, since if he did it before no way either of us would be able to focus. And there I was, doing every possible thing to prolong it.)
Finally, we got back to my house and started to walk inside. He was still acting weird and he said, "Wait...come kiss me." Sure. In the middle of the driveway. Yeah, why not? So, suspecting something, I set my stuff down and walked over to him. Then he said, "Wait, I've got something in my shoe, I think it's a rock. A really big rock." Then he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! I couldn't stop grinning! (And, duh, said yes.) When he got up he was shaking so bad I thought he was going to pass out! We spent the rest of the night telling everybody and talking about it! (My favorite was when he had run out of things to say but still wanted to talk about it so he said, "So...are you like...happy?" As if the permasmile on my face couldn't answer that one.)
A little side note: Sorry if my writing was a little off this evening, I'm being blinded as I type by this dazzling ring! ;)

Yep...he's a keeper!
