Last week? Now that was a very good week!
Why you ask? Well for starters, I hit the 37th week in my pregnancy, so Natalie is now considered full term! Even though there’s still two weeks until the due date now, she’s totally healthy could be here anytime. CRAZY. Next, my oldest brother Carl came for a surprise visit! He just popped in for a day while he was out this way for a conference in Las Vegas, but he lives in Chicago with his wife Summer and we don’t get to see them very often. So needless to say I was VERY happy to see him :) Lastly though, and most exciting of all… My other brother proposed to his girlfriend!!! CALEB AND JACKIE ARE ENGAGED!!!
Yep, told you it was a good week ;)
Caleb’s a little bit of prankster and loves the element of surprise, so his goal was to completely catch Jackie off guard with his proposal. And he definitely succeeded :) He took her to the top of Olympic Park Hill after school on Friday, claiming he wanted to get a look at the fall colors. After overlooking Park City for a few moments (he didn’t wait very long lol), he got down on his knee and asked her to marry him! She said yes of course :) Then he kept the surprises coming when he dropped her off at home to a decorated house and a new dress to wear when he took her to dinner, followed by the last surprise of a little champagne toast and engagement party with family and friends! He did a pretty good job, if I do say so myself…
Caleb and I had scouted out the perfect spot and made a plan earlier to make sure we had a good view! Then I stayed hidden and snuck up behind them as he brought her down…
Proposing! She was so shocked :)
I love this one. She couldn’t get over how surprising it was, and Caleb was quite pleased with himself. Haha.
We snapped just a few photos at Olympic Park before Caleb brought her back to her house to get ready for dinner.
Then while they were at dinner, family and friends gathered to surprise Jackie yet again. Everyone waited on the stairs for the couple to arrive!
Jackie thought they were just stopping in to show the ring my parents and to the Spencer’s (who hosted the party)…
Until she saw the stairs!
But then came best part, a surprise for Caleb. He had no idea Carl had come into town for the celebration! His reaction was priceless.
It was a perfect evening toasting to and celebrating Caleb and Jackie :)
My favorite shot of the night :)
Congratulations again you two!!! I love you so much Caleb and I’m so glad you’ve found someone who makes you completely happy like Jackie does. And I’m thrilled for you to be joining the family, Jackie :) Can’t WAIT for the wedding!!!!
