Smiles, Tears and Congratulations

My {TWIN} got engaged!! 

I'm about 2 weeks late with this blog post... but at least I'm blogging about it right??

Ryan (her now fiance)

had it aaalll planned out and I was apart of it!

It all started like this:
 ------Please note, this conversation is paraphrased, and a little dramatization is involved.-------
Ryan: Kriss, I'm going to ask Kim to be my wife next Sunday at the Block in Orange, can you ask her if she wants to go to the Block with you, like a "twin day"
Me: What! Omg yes!
Me: {ring ring}Kimie, what are you and Ryan doing next Sunday? Mikey and I want to go down to The Block and have dinner and shop, you guys in?
Kimie: Heck yes! I'll ask Ry what he's doing that day.

----Of course, Ryan told her he had to work, but encouraged her to still go with me.
She told me she was coming but Ryan was not. I had to ask all the questions on why he wasn't coming and of course acted sympathetic. (she was sad about it) {oh please! Get over it!}
Sunday came, all the preparations were being made. 
Kim was in a --weird-- mood (I knew she wanted Ryan to come with us to the mall) gag! get over it! Juuuust kidding!
Little did she know, Ryan was going to be there... waiting... with a ring and some roses.

I took her on a scavenger hunt all throughout the mall. 
We stopped at designated stores (all thought of by Ryan) and we had different family members there waiting to hand her a rose and a "love quote". 

Kimberly basically had paparazzi (a hired photographer and videographer)

and a posse (all of her friends and family following her to the next stop)  

I had to throw this picture in. Ryan, hoping everything is going as planned.

 As the "scavenger hunt" was coming to an end, we still had one more stop to go to before the LAST stop. 
Both my parents and Ryan's parents were waiting to hand Kimie the last of the roses and love quotes.

Our last stop was Lucky Strike.

We walked in

and right on cue, a DVD of the both of them played on the big screen. (awwwww)
She stood there nervously. With tears down her face... waiting... anticipating.

And then he came out. (no picture - shucks!)

Got down on one knee, mumbled some words only Kimie heard and asked her to be his wife.
What do you think she said?
I'm assuming yes. We really couldn't hear. haha

Ryan had invited friends and family to join in on the celebration.
Ryan's cousin and sister.

Kimberly and Anna
Ryan and Kimberly's Families

 Our family. whoop whoop
Soon to be Mr. and Mrs. Ryan Tillman

All in all, it was a night of smiles, tears and congratulations!
Oh ya, and some bowling! 
Twinie, Twin, Twin, I love you and couldn't be more happier for you! You deserve the world and more.
