Comprometidos

So I was enjoying being a menace, but along came a girl. Today in San Francisco I got engaged to Whitney. We got engaged at the Oakland temple which has the best view of the entire bay area. Even though we talked about getting married (and set our date a while ago), Whitney had no idea I was proposing and she was surprised. We're working some things out so we will be getting a civil wedding first. Whitney's bishop will perform the ceremony.

For those of you who don't know her, this is Whitney:



She's pretty much the coolest girl I've ever met. She was born in Seattle and was raised in South Salt Lake. She served a mission to Lima, Peru. She has been back about 2 years. We chat in Spanish. She is 24. She is graduating from the U of Utah with a degree in History in December. History majors are smart people, you know. We met at the law firm I was clerking for last summer in Salt Lake - she was (still is) working as a document clerk. They will probably fire one of us when we get married, and I'm probably gone because they love her so much there.

She is very intelligent and thoughtful and I love her very much. She's a deep thinker. She's my dream girl. For all of you who don't know her (and all of you who will get to know her), I believe you will love her.



P.S. Just kidding about the civil thing. Salt Lake is our temple. Feb. 15th is our day. Hope you all can make it.

Carly said...

Oh and of course we'll be there, nearly 9 months pregnant and everything!

Grats.

Sean said...

WOW. Way to go Rob! Congrats!

KC said...

Don't go the civil route, it made my first marriage a nightmare.

Rob that is awesome, I'm very happy for you.

While the reception plans are early, can I suggest we do something at Snowbird since it will be in February. Just a thought.

Rob said...

Wait so all of you posted but no one called us...? You guys are so silly.

Rob said...

You guys have to come to our wedding, not just post on the blog "congrats...hope your day was great!"

Lindsay said...

Yay!! Congrats!! I'm so excited for you guys! I'm very excited to meet Whitney. A Crockett sister-in-law, yay!

Yeah, you had me going with the civil wedding thing--what a jokester.

Wait, did you call anyone to tell them you were engaged?

I hope you post pictures of your wedding on the blog--I'll be eager to see how things went. JK, of course we'll be there!

Carly said...

Yeah Rob, you didn't call anybody!! Silly boy.

So has Whitney passed the test? Can she name everybody in the fam, along with their ages and birthdates.....oh wait, Rob, YOU can't even do that!! Nevermind! :) Just teasing.

Sean said...

Okay Scott, you're up next!

Ryan said...

It's about time! I was starting to wonder, Rob. This is really great news, and we can't wait to meet Whitney. She must be pretty special. I just hope she's not a Jazz fan.

Ryan said...

BTW, What does "grats" mean, Tadd? Is that Italian for thank you or something? Rob and Whitney speak Spanish, not Italian.

Kelli said...

Finally! Mom was getting worried.
Hah no just kidding! Congratulations, Rob and Whitney.

Soooo when's Whitney going to start writing on the family blog??

Lindsay said...

Yeah, she can post at any time. Invite her, Rob, and she can be another contributor. Unless she doesn't want to be involved in this craziness. I don't blame her. :)

BTW, nice try, Sean.

Sean said...

que?

Ryan,Grats = Congrats (CRAZY HUH?)

Lindsay said...

Scott's not up next, YOU are!

Sean said...

Dades! (Short for felicidades which is ending up not being shorter than just saying CONGRATULATIONS!) We are very happy to see that Whitney said yes to Rob. Yeah! Whitney's very good already at consoling him after a bears loss, so that's a good sign. Is it cool if we come to the wedding?

Now that I think about it, it's not fair that you are bringing a woman into the family to compete with our collective, radiating beauty. What happened to marrying an ugly girl?


;)

Tadd said...

Hmmmmmm.... Nate seems to have hacked my account. Ignore that last comment.

KC said...

learn to spell her name right Tadd

esplinfamilyblog said...

Kudos, Rob. Good thing your taste in women is a bit more refined than your sense of humor.

Hm, no, don't remember hacking Tadd's account.

Congratulations Rob! I'll try and make it to the wedding.

C & T Rowe said...

Congratulations! I can't wait to meet her.

Rob said...

That's funny Scott. It's funny that Whitney doesn't think we look alike, but really we do.

Nancy said...

you FREAKED me out, Rob!

Davy said...

Congratulations. I'm impressed that you are engaged to someone named after a high mountain with some super trails on it. As kids come along, you can name them Rainier, Timp, etc. Very nice news, she sounds like a great girl.
