On Wednesday December 22nd 2010, the man I love most -Timothy Zemp- proposed to me. It was a day that I will remember forever. I’ve never had a “best days of your life” list, but as you could have guessed I do now! December 22nd 2010 takes an easy first with many more days to be added I’m sure. I don’t know how I came to be so lucky; Knowing that I get to be with someone so amazing and so perfect for me makes me simply sit back in awe. I LOVE Tim Zemp. If you’re wondering how we came to be, I still don’t completely understand it, but here is the proposal. Enjoy!

So first things first, Tim can be pretty tricky. He had me completely fooled this christmas. Before the holidays started, he came to me with a "concern". 

" Jordan, I'm really sorry if your hopes are up, but I just wanted to let you know in advance that I don't have the money for a ring this Christmas. I hope you aren't disappointed."

Following his remarks I quickly reassured him that I wasn't disappointed in the slightest. I knew things we're tight and wasn't expecting anything. A few days later, I was preparing to sing "Santa Baby" in the Cardston Christmas concert that very evening. Tim asked me if he could come watch me practice at the theatre. I warned him that it could be really boring, but he didn't care. ( Hehe I now know why.) As the concert drew closer, Tim kept saying things like " I'm so nervous!" I'd reply: "I'm not nervous, why are you nervous!?" And then Tim would say something along the lines that when I perform, he gets nervous for me. I was completely oblivious, I thought he was just being cute. Finally the concert had started and it was my turn to sing. As my song came to an end, the last line went like this:

Forgot to mention one little thing, a ring
 I don't mean on the phone
Santa Baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight

It was while I was singing my very last note that Tim walked on stage. He was dressed ever so handsomely in his suit and red tie. The boys that were singing backup behind me all stood up in between us. Tim shewed them away with the comment " I only have one question." Then he got down on one knee and said the words I will never forget.

-Jordan Crawford will you marry me?-

I was completely overcome. My thought process when Tim first walked on stage was... what's tim doing on stage? When I saw the little box in his hand it was more... wait, is that what i think it is!? And then when he got on one knee,  the realization sunk in. I tried to come up with a word, that described my JOY/SHOCK/HAPPINESS/LOVE/EXCITEMENT, but was unsuccessful. There really is no word to describe it, I was simply overcome. One word I did find  will never do the way I felt justice, but it probably comes the closest. (specifically the last part ;)

I love Tim Zemp and I can NOT wait to begin my life with him! (65 more days) Here is a picture of the proposal. A huge thanks to Trisha for taking it!
