Jones & Baker - Part 1

Most of all, I remember... I knew Clint was the one when he came to visit my family for the first time. Coming from a big family it can be intimidating meeting everyone for the first time (especially with a family of mostly girls) and he definitely passed the test! My whole family loved him and I knew at that moment that he was the one.

Happy Anniversary Chandler & Franklin!

Most of all, I remember... Franklin and I were set up on a blind date by a mutual friend. I went for a free meal and nothing else, and came home after the date and told my mom that I was going to marry him. It really was love at first sight… And I thought it didn’t exist! Two years later, Franklin took me to the place where we went as a part of our first date... to the bar at the historic Driskill Hotel in Austin! We were supposed to meet up with his sister, who said that she was running late, so we sat on the couch in the bar and just talked. It was such a relaxing moment. So you can imagine how surprised I was when he looked at me and said "was this the one you wanted?" and just flashed me the ring... It didn't hit me that he was actually proposing to me at that point. I reached for the ring to see it, and he pulled back saying that he needed to do it the right way. He pulled out the ring box and began moving towards the floor and then it hit me--It was actually happening! I IMMEDIATELY began to cry as he got on one knee!!! The whole bar (which was filled with SXSW go-ers) started cheering and clapping for us!! After about five minutes of crying, hugging and "oh-my-gosh"-ing, I realized I hadn't actually said yes yet!! (which I immediately made sure of!!) I had no idea that any of this was planned, of course, which is why I was wearing a sequined top and jeans!! (I thought I was going to a comedy show for SXSW and we were meeting friends at the bar for drinks beforehand!) After the proposal, we went to the Austin Club for dinner with our parents. We talked about how we were eating at the place where my parents had celebrated their wedding reception, and after we put in an order for dessert, my mom suggested that we walk upstairs to the ballroom to look at it as a reception venue for us! When I opened the door to the ballroom, all our friends and family were there to celebrate with us!! It was a perfectly magical night and I could not be happier! I GET TO MARRY MY BEST FRIEND!! I'm the luckiest girl on Earth!!!
