June 5, 2010: Engaged!

Last year around this time Parker and I went to Austin's Park and Pizza for the day and it was a lot of fun so Parker told me he wanted to do something fun again. So while I was on campus on Friday, he called me and said that he had been on a waiting list for this "thing" and they had called him because someone had canceled and a spot had opened up and I needed to call my dad and ask if we could stay the night in temple with them. I called dad and he was like, "oh! I'm so glad he got tickets to that, y'all are going to have a lot of fun!" We left for Austin around 5 am and he wouldn't tell me what we were doing because it was a surprise (but I really didn't think anything of that because he does that all the time with stuff). We get to Austin, and he pulls up to Graham Middle School Parking Lot- Its pitch black still and there is NO ONE there. I was like, "Parker, I think you're confused." But he said he was expecting people so maybe they were on the other side of the school. We went around, but no one was there so we went back to the front. About that time, a big truck with a huge basket thing on the back pulled into the parking lot and when we got closer I saw that it was the basket part of a hot air balloon! 5 minutes later, my dad pulled in on his Harley and had a camera and was going to take some pictures. I went over to him and was saying how much fun this was going to be and he said something like, "you know, he's been planning this for a long time." I thought that was a little weird because Parker said a spot had just opened up. I was a little suspicious so I looked pretty closely at his pockets to see if there was a ring box bulge or anything in them and there was nothing suspicious so I honestly didn't think anything more of it. Besides, he had told me the night before not to get my hopes up about him asking me. He said, "Chelsea, I will ask you one day and I know when I'm going to ask you- I am serious about you,
but tomorrow is a day to have fun. Enjoy it and don't be disappointed that I don't ask you because tomorrow is not the day."

So we take off from the hot air balloon, wave goodbye to my dad and start our ride! About twenty minutes later, Parker asked the pilot to take a picture of us on my cell phone. Parker showed him how it worked, and just when I went to put my arm around him for the photo, he got down on one knee and pulled a ring out of his pocket!! He said, "Chelsea, I have loved you since the day I met you. Will you marry me?" and I said "YES!!!" It was so sweet and I was SO surprised! It turns out, the only person that knew from my family was my dad. My mom didn't even know! (this is probably a good thing because she might have told me something out of excitement! haha)

Parker: Will you marry me?
Chelsea: YES!!!


When we got back to my house (after my mom and I stopped our girly celebratory screaming), Parker got my sister, Samantha, to stand up and he got down on one knee in front of her and pulled out another ring. He said, "Samantha I just want you to know that I will always be your brother and when I marry Chelsea, I marry you and all of your family. I love you." It was really sweet.

So, yesterday was probably the greatest day of my life...but I know there are even better days ahead!

What a lovely monday!

Parker and I went to the boys A&M basketball game! We had a lot of fun and Parker got to go on the court and shoot shots for the shooting challenge! He won 10$ to schlotzsky's! He's a balla!

Also, to anyone who knows me or reads my blogs on a regular basis, you would know that I have tried out for choirs at Texas A&M 3 different times and never got in. Well, today I tried out for the woman's choir...and I made it!!!! You are looking at one of the newest rookie members of the Fightin' Texas Aggie Woman's Chorus! Whoop!

No Good News

This semester is not going to go as smoothly as I hoped it would. I went to Organic Chemistry today, and it was normal. I went to my Political Science class, and I feel sort of unsure about that class and how demanding it will be. I also went to my Physics Lab...and now im starting to feel more anxiety about physics. My TA doesn't seem to want to answer my questions...and that is the whole point of lab. I was sort of banking on lab to help me figure out the lecture...but it would seem that I am going to have to end up resorting to some kind of tutoring service before each test. This semester is going to be so hard...

On the bright side, Parker has made me laugh so much recently. He cracks me up sometimes! Its really great to have him around so that I can get through the day. :)

Spring 2010 Begins

Parker decided to try out the earphones I got him for Christmas while at school today...I think he figured out that I got them from the dollar tree...

Today was my first day back to school! I have 3 classes today, and so far I have been to 2 of them. My classes for the day are as follows:
1. Physics
2. Kinesiology (Weight Lifting/Health Class)
3. Entomology (Bug Class)

My physics professor seems...old. And a little rude, but Hes not horrible. My Kinesiology Professor seems young and a little rude, but again, shes not horrible. I havent been to my Entomology class yet, but here's what I do know:
The professor is young, male, and has like 3 degrees from Yale.
Therefore, He is probably also rude.

Hope this semester treats me well...Tomorrow I have Organic Chemistry, Political Science, and Physics Lab. We will see how it goes.

I went out to meme and papa's farm this weekend and ray helped me gut and skin a hog! He even processed the meat for me and let me take home 24 pounds of delicious meat! I am making a powerpoint of all the pictures and organs and such and turning it in to my animal science professor for extra credit :)

Thank you SO much ray!
