Yes, you read that right.  Matt and I are finally engaged!  I know...I couldn't believe it either, and I am so happy!

On Sunday the 29th, Matt suspiciously took Emma shopping with him, and made it very clear that I couldn't go.  It was strange.  Very strange.  But I knew he was up to something, and I was pretty sure that the something was going to buy an engagement ring (since there were big sales going on around Black Friday!).  Well they weren't gone very long, and Matt came up with a story that Emma wanted to get out of her stroller, and how could he possibly shop with a crabby baby, and all he came home with was a Barnes and Noble membership card for Hannah.  So I was kinda bummed, but this wasn't the first time that I suspected something to no avail!

But a few hours later, Matt took Emma down to the basement to change the laundry, and when they came up Emma was holding a little box!  I was very surprised and instantly got teary eyed.   Then Matt came over and got down on one knee and asked me if I would marry him.  It was perfect and sweet and very 'us'.  I of course said yes :).  I loved how he involved Emma.  It was wonderful.
