She said YES!

We just got back from the wonderful date! Everything went perfect like clock work. I couldn't have done it with out Clint and Valerie and also Jen Wozab. The whole night Delena was telling me how she had pulled the best April Fools Joke on me by telling me earlier she couldn't make it to the date. But I kept saying I was going to get her back! And I did!

To give you a quick run down, every element of the date went perfect and she left convinced that I was not proposing and that I had to still keep looking. I told her I had yet to ask her dad, going to look for rings really threw her off and then I sealed the deal by giving her the concert tickets. She was so happy! I also mentioned that I was going to try and talk to her dad this weekend to help make sure she had no idea.

When I was running to the front door step I could hear her opening the package and then she ran to the door, I was shocked at how fast she opened it. I said "Will you marry me"? She sat there for a second and then screamed! YES YES YES and hugged me, she then asked if it was all for real or was it an April Fools Joke. But no it was all for REAL!

Well we are now together and she loves the ring, we will post some pictures, etc in the days to come.

Here is Delena:

I can't even begin to describe the feelings I am having right now this is so fun! I will NEVER forget the look on his face when I opened the door and he asked the me the question I wanted to answer so much. I have never her his voice in such a high pitch!
Its been so fun to read all about what's been going on behind my back. It really made the moment even better to be able to read and talk about the details the last hour or so is such a blur I am so grateful to have all this written down!! What a wonderfully thoughtful thing to do! I really feel like a queen. I felt like a queen since our first date! I am so glad he has chosen me to be his wife.

I am so happy for you two! Congratulations! Yesterday, it hit me: BenJoe is gonna propose to Delena! I told my friends about it and we all drank a beer in your honour.

This is so exciting. Visiting this blog was the first thing that came on my mind apart from hangovers, when I woke up!

This is so great! Love rules! Now show us the ring!

Well I saw the ring today that BenJoe has been talking about. I think it is beautiful and fits Delena perfectly. I am so thrilled for both of them. I love Delena as a daughter already. Now, they can finally start planning the wedding. Love you two lots,
Rayma (BenJoe's Mom)

Thank You both and to everyone who has been coming to the site. We just got off a two day road trip through Utah showing everyone the ring and telling everyone the great news. I am going to post the ring on the webssite and then later I will get some of our photos from the date.

Splat! Thanks for thinking of us, we love having you hear with us.

Hey Benjoe, congratulations! My wife and I are very happy for you. Good luck with the wedding plans. Hopefully you like getting your picture taken better than I did, or your wedding day could be pretty long, j/k.

Remember this is just the beginning. It will only get better from here.

Horrray!! I haven't been able to see the blog for a few days and I was worried Delena might have said no! Ha ha, I knew she wouldn't. What an exciting time for you both, and busy!! It is true it just keeps getting better as the plans move along. Before you know it, you will be married looking at your wedding pictures as proof, asking "Did it really happen, are we really married!!?"
Delena, the ring is perfect for you, I don't think BenJoe could have done a better job! Congrats, congrats, congrats!! Three cheers for BenJoe and Delena!!

Life is Wonderful!!
