Engagement Take 2

Emma proposes to Karen:

We came to Austin for the 10K that Karen planned to run. We were staying with Kaitlin and, plan in mind, I conspired with her for tips on pulling off my scheme. The three of us went out for dinner and I snuck the ring into my purse before we left. After dinner, I suggested that Karen and I walk up to take a look at the state capitol, which was nearby and very pretty all lit up at night. I almost hit a big road bump when Karen said she wasn't feeling great, but with some gentle nudging we convinced her. Kaitlin gracefully bowed out and we walked up the hill to the Capitol. We were able to walk right up to it and stood in the light admiring it. Then I got down on one knee and brought out the ring. She was all cute and shaky when I put it on her hand, and then we sat on a bench and cuddled for a bit before going back to Kaitlin's.

Here's a picture of the ring:

Soon I'll get Karen to post her versions of our engagement stories. :)

So, I'm impressed that you guys like, know how to buy engagement rings and stuff. And propose for real. I'm obviously not ready to be getting engaged (and I'm not, don't freak out, Karen). But you're obviously pros. And it's really sweet.
