(Right after getting engaged at Disneyland, Christmas day 2006!!)
Toph took advantage of my fam being in southern Ca for Christmas this year (best vaycay ever!) and popped the question over dinner in downtown Disney on Christmas day! He'd wrapped up a bunch of presents for me and the last one I opened was the ring. He asked and I answered with one enthusiastic, "Uh huh!" so now we're officially engaged but we don't get to hang out until we both get back to Provo after the break. TWO WEEKS from now! Good thing we both have Cingular: free phone calls! Well, free for us anyway. :)
Anne Swenson (also known as Anne Fan Dan) is the best!! She and I are BFASF's (best.freaking.amazing.sisters.forever. yep.) and as such, she decided to come over and make me breakfast for my birthday. (She even let Toph come and eat with us!! He's kinda my fave too.) After breakfast Anne+I went thrifting and then had Thai for dinner with our whole huge group. Then Toph gave me a CD with all "our" songs on it. This has been the best birthday ever! No joke. Forever.
The first thing I ever said to him was, "Who would name their kid Topher?!?" So basically I had him at, "Your name's weird and your parents are nuts." It was straight up love at first insult. Toph and I have been hanging out constantly basically ever since. He asked me to homecoming (How did he ask? Oh just by writing me a song. Entitled of course: "The Meredith Song." Duh.), we've been going to law conventions on campus together (he's pre-law too) and I went to his fam's house in So Cal for Thanksgiving. His mom made us take the color test. (I cheated so we'd both be whites. Pretty sure I'm really a red.) We've already fasted about getting married and it felt pretty perfect. Things are getting kinda serious up in here. I love this kid. So much.
