My Sunday morning started REALLY early. I had a VERY important phone call to make (our stupid Skype isn't accepting incoming calls for some unknown reason)!
I've known for a while now that she was getting engaged this weekend because I made her promise I'd be the 1st to know so she told her boyfriend I had to be involved. Living overseas, I feel like we're always the last to know everything and often only find things out because of Facebook (like my BIL's engagement and grandparents major surgeries)! Her boyfriend knew that she was expecting him to wait until I was back in the States to propose so in order to surprise her he involved me (as much as possible) in the planning.
I'm beyond thrilled with the way he chose to propose. Almost three years ago, I took Carissa to a Crossfit workout with me and she was instantly hooked. Even after I left, she kept at it and it's changed her life. Not only does she look & feel fabulous, she also met the love of her life at that gym (I totally take credit for their relationship). They've both come so far in the past three years both in their health/fitness & their love so it was only fitting that he proposed at a Crossfit event.
Luckily for me, there were tons of people around to take photos!
(these were all stolen from her Facebook)
The best part is, someone caught it on film!
The video definitely made me cry. This girl has been through the ringer over the past 5 years and she deserves to be happy. I'm so happy that she found Rob and I can't wait for their big day!
