So yes I'm engaged! :) Three weeks after Randy got home from his mission in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, he popped the question. Let me tell you about it...
Randy and I dated for 6 months before his mission and we wrote back and forth very faithfully throughout the mission. When he got home, it felt like he had never left and the month he's been home has felt like many months have gone by. I've loved every second of being with him. The second weekend after he had gotten home, Randy picked me up from Rexburg and we drove up to his cabin in Island Park, which gave us a lot of time to talk. We talked about all our goals and what things we expected for our future. On the way up, he kept telling me to pray that the clouds would go away because it was a really cloudy night and he wanted the stars out to see our constellation, Orions belt. When we finally got there, the clouds had parted and all the stars were out. So we went outside and he looks at me and says, "Kayleigh, I love you." I was SO happy! I knew that I loved him and was so glad that the feelings were mutual ;) So we continued talking and marriage would always come up, mostly on my part. I think we both knew that we'd get married, but we didn't know when. He always told me that we wouldn't get engaged until after he got home from a month long trip. 
Randy and I decided to go snowmobiling before all the snow melted and he wanted to get in all the riding he could before it warmed up. So we took off and were taking pictures of him jumping and being crazy. We then went to the top of the mountain, on Two Top in Island Park. (Before his mission, the weekend before, we went up there and had taken pictures up on the top of the mountain. The picture we took up there was my favorite of me and Randy so we were basically going up to "recreate" the moment.)
So on top of the mountain, Randy and I were standing with our nose and forehead touching, just hugging and stuff. "Kayleigh Ann Huntsman." (WHAT?! He just said my full name, what is going on!!?) "Is this your favorite place?" I told him it was, but it was really windy and I didn't like it at the moment. (I'm dumb I know, don't judge me...) "Can I make it your favorite place?" (AHHHHHH!!!) The next little moments were kind of a blur. He got on his knee and asked if I would marry him. He said I didn't say yes, but I swear I did! I remember nodding and kinda freaking out in my head. The ring....BEAUTIFUL! He picked it out kinda by himself (I showed him pictures of what i liked, but we never "looked at rings" together).
The ride down, I was so happy. Nothing could have ruined that day. Even when we got lost for 3 hours, I was still happy. We got back to the cabin and we were all exhausted, but all I wanted to do was look at all the pictures we took up on the mountain. (We got the whole proposal documented....good planning babe.) Now it's onto stressful wedding planning! :S The next couple of days I was really sore, but it was good memories for sure. I will never forget that day!
I'm so excited to spend eternity with the love of my life. He is so good and helps me be the best I can be. His family is so awesome and I love every minute I get to spend with them. I get nieces and nephews that I already love so much. I'm so blessed.
