When songwriter-turned-American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi got engaged to fiancé Mike McCuddy in December, it was warm and fuzzy for a number of reasons.

First, of course, the 38 year-old was getting engaged. But also, she was wearing thermal smiley-face pajamas at the time.

She told reporters at the after-party of American Idol's season premiere that her 34 year-old honey lit candles and surprised her by asking the romantic question, "Do you know where my shoes are?'"

She replied that she did not. Schoolteacher-turned-contractor McCuddy then said, "All right, well then will you marry me?"

She accepted.

The couple has been together over a year-and-a-half.
