I wish. I wish.

Upon a star, a star so bright. Well you know those things that you want to happen so bad that when they do happen you cant believe it finally happened. Well, first thing is my grandpa died last night, we knew it was going to happen and a matter of time and now he is in a better place.  I am glad he is out of his pain and misery and happy. Second Today, I got engaged. We (Peter and I) went to Effingham, which is about an hour and half south of here to my grandparents farm for Christmas eve. Well he asked me to go on a walk with him and some how or reason he wanted me to climb this wonky ladder to the hay barn seen from this picture of a tractor. (You can see the upstairs, behind the tractor). There is way lying in the hay a box, Champagne, two glasses, and this rose. He asked me from behind and I am still in shock. There is ring below. I am some pretty hefty demands. I did not want a normal diamond because I was afraid it would/could scratch people seeing how I am going to be a nurse. So he bought me a diamond and sapphire ring because they are both  very sturdy/ strong jewels. I am so happy. =)
 The end. 

P.S. No plans are made yet. stop asking.

secret santa..

So everyone has them at work, school, etc, and you are suppose to come up with a present for a stranger in a price range between $15 to 20. I love to hate them. I am not going to pull the easy card and just get you a gift card I am too creative for that, sorry.
So this is what I came up with for mine. I bought two mugs for $0.54/ea at goodwill that are super cute, bought 2 spatulas at target for $2.50, miny candy canes  for $1.99 for a box, peppermint extract for $3.00, two hand-made  potholders (with yarn I already had), and the dry mix for these cupcakes. total: $10.58.. I win!
