Who needs a royal engagement when you have friends like this!!!

Read the post before watching the clip!

I had the pleasure last night of watching the most beautiful engagement unfold!!!! Let me tell ya how it went down!


My friend Dara's birthday celebration set the perfect stage!


Kim has been dating Stephen for about three years or so now, they met at a youth retreat. He lives in Michigan and she lives here in Canada. He has tried to come over here to live for awhile and get married and in fact just in October he tried to get here but immigration's red tape has not been easy nor has it been easy for her to go there so they sent him back home. It's fine if they come or go to visit but the moving across the border has been a hassle. Once they are married moving into the same country won't be such a fight.


SOOOO Dara sent out an e-mail to a bunch of people to explain that she would like to raise enough money to purchase a plane ticket for Steven to come here to propose to Kim. The plan to have this happen was master minded by Dara herself. She let on she didn't know much about her birthday but in fact had her husband in on the plan so he got Kim to help him plan to have a hummer drive to the restaurant and surprise her by telling her it was hers......so we all get settled around the table and Dara's husband texted our friend Janet and said he was only 5 minutes away. Kim tells Dara there is a surprise outside waiting for her and leads her out telling her to keep her eyes shut THEN!!!!


Steven jumps out of the hummer and runs up to Kim who's mouth hit the ground when she realised the surprise was actually for HER! He got down on one knee and proposed to her right then and there! IT WAS SOOOOO PERFECT! She had NO IDEA she just planned her own engagement!


We all stood around in awwwwe of the two of them soooo in love. I am so excited that I got to be a part of there special day!
Aren't the adorable!!!! Congrats you guys! Love ya's!
