"Absolutely! I think I'm going to have someone do my makeup just because it‚s allowed to get spoiled on that day, but I‚m going to go back into the bathroom and tweak a little bit myself,‰ Karina said, adding that her beau loves the lip gloss so much she may even have to name one just for him "Bradilicious!˜of course.

"He thinks it actually tastes like candy."

So how are the newly-engaged couple spending time together?

"We're actually house-bodies, we love to have the fires in the back, have friends over, we‚ll play Catch Phrase, play games and we love to cook together, because he travels most of the time about 7-8 months out of the year so it‚s like whenever he's home in LA it‚s awesome to feel like we're home together."

And even between Dancing with the Stars and his baseball schedule, Karina's still taking all the planning ahead of her one day at a time.

"I have no idea because at this point I think we found the place where we want to get married, but we‚re still not 100% sure. But it's like 10 months away, I think I have plenty of time."

And don‚t look out for any Bridezillas here.

"Oh no! Neither one of us is."
