I'm Engaged!!!

The day I've been waiting for has finally arrived. Its true, I'm engaged. But there is more to it than just a simple proposal. In fact its anything but simple.


I knew that he was proposing soon I just had NO clue when but I did not expect what actually happened. Last night after our Institute class our friends suggested for us all to go get frostys at Wendy's. So i agreed to go along since thats just a kind of thing we usually do.


We show up at Wendy's and I sit down with a couple friends while Reed is paying for our frosty. He comes to sit down and hands me mine. I start slowly eating away since after all it is ice cream and I hate brain Freezes. Then one of my friends gets the bright Idea to race, i'm up for a little competition so I agree to go along and start scarfing my frosty down. I mean I was taking huge bites and swallowing there was no tasting at all.

I get to the end and everyone starts staring at me with this weird worried look on their face and I have no clue what is going on around me. Reed picks up my cup looks in it and of course it is empty. Then he starts looking all around me like he lost something. Then everyone starts digging in their cups and looking around them. I have no clue what is going on this whole time.

Finally Reed gets up and tells me that he thinks I swallowed my ring. I could not believe it! I swore that i would've felt it but he gave me the right cup and thats the only place it could've been. The whole time i thought he was joking and i was waiting for him to propose. Then he suggests to go to the Emergency Room and get an xray.

We start to drive over and the whole time i still think he is joking. I was waiting for him to pull over and propose but it doesn't happen. We get to the hospital and walk in and check in and i realize this really must be happening.

We get the x-ray and there it is!!!!! Oh my goodness I could not believe that my engagement ring is in my stomach! I didn't know whether to laugh or cry, but i think i did a little of both.

We go back to his house and he does the real proposal with the xray in hand haha with his family and our friends watching. But of course I said Yes even after all i just went through. Then we go off to tell my family what happened and they could not believe it and haven't stopped laughing ever since. Yes it is such a crazy fun story but i'll be much happier once its out haha.

Good new is that we got another x-ray and its moved quite a bit and is about to enter my large intestine. So my estimated arrival date is tomorrow afternoon. Lets just hope and pray!

Now just stop laughing for a moment and watch the video that my friend Racquel recorded. It is a bit lengthy but I promise its worth it!


video


I still can't belived this happened but it did. I'm not sure I would belive this story if I was anyone else especially coming from me. Its crazy and insane but thats my life. :)
I've been filled with fiber all day and been drinking tons and tons of water so hopefully everything goes smoothly literally hahaha

I will keep everyone updated on what happens next. But all kidding aside I'm so excited that i'm finally engaged and can't wait to spend the rest my life with the man of my dreams :)

  11. I came from your sister's blog!! You can thank her for sending all of us here. But first congrats!! And second thank you for making me laugh. I am extremly sick and I haven't felt like much all day until this!!

  12. Kaitlin I just have to say that your story is making the rounds all over Utah, Arizona, and Mexico. I've told pretty much everyone I know plus my supervisors at work and friends. When I told Becca she said, "I can't wait to tell someone" plus Heidi told me she was going to email the link to all her friends. I love it, this will be a story that goes on FOREVER! Pretty much you'll be the person that everyone says, "I heard from a friend that one their friends had a friend that swallowed a ring" and they won't believe it but IT'S TRUE! I laugh everytime I tell someone new. As funny as it is I'm not really suprised. This is exactly something that would happen to you. I can't wait to see the final product!

  13. okay, you don't know me, but my mom spoke at the Institute today, and just sent me this link :)

  22. Girlfriend, you are FAMOUS. Just heard your story on KRLD 1080 here in Dallas. When I googled you, I saw your story has also been posted on msnbc's website.

    Congratulations!

    Talk about suspense, waiting for that ring to come . . . to pass.

  23. I'm all the way in Bermuda reading this story. I'd just come home from a crappy (pardon the pun) day at work and feeling downright grumpy. Well, let me tell you that this tale had me cracking up with laughter...especially when it got to the part about instead of a regular proposal Reed proposed going to the Hospital! Then the prunes and bran part-so funny...I'm glad the ring came out o.k. This story was so cute-I wish you guys all the best and thanks for the laugh! Ann in Bermuda.

  24. I don't know you, but my husband forwarded me an article about the proposal and I almost died laughing... I just had to check out your blog to see if it was really true... that is just too funny. I'm glad you finally got the ring!

    Here's to a lifetime full of "surprises"!

    CONGRATULATIONS!!!

It reminds me, my son in law, last xmas I gave him a magnetic game, and he swalow one of them. And it didn't go out as easy as your ring, even thow it was a little tiny ball.. but it was magnetic. He had to go thorough a endoscopy... sad, ah.. So prunes and fiber.. great!!!
    Anyway, I couldn't resist to congratulate both of you and wish you a great life togheter.!!

  33. Hilarious! My husband forwarded this to me, and I was just dying! He thinks you and Reed need to have that x-ray hanging in your house. Congrats on the engagement and the extraction of that gorgeous ring!

  34. Saw your story on MSN and googled the blog; admittedly, I cannot believe I just spent eleven minutes watching somebody eat their engagement ring.

    Congratulations on the engagement and what is quite possibly the most spectacularly hilarious story EVER. I think that you should get free Frostys for a lifetime after that story.

  47. Well, you're giving so many people a giggle, you're being another great ambassador for our church, and your honeymoon dream came true. That's sa-weet. I forgot to ask a question, though: Did the producers of these shows seem confused when you asked for separate hotel rooms? Ha ha.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Found your story via Stumble. My boyfriend and I had a good laugh. I hope everything "works itself out" and that your wedding and marriage turn out exactly as you hope. lol. If he'll stick by you through pooping out an engagement ring, he's the one. : )
