Kristin Cavallari & Jay Cutler: It Was Love at First Sight
"I think we both knew from the moment we met that we wanted to marry each other," the former Hills star, 24, tells PEOPLE. "It's been a great situation."
And it doesn't hurt that her family is a fan of Cutler, 27, who proposed during a romantic getaway to Mexico.
"My parents are both extremely happy," she says. "There's been no drama, which is good."
Cavallari – who has been portrayed as the typical blonde California beach babe on TV – is even planning to permanently trade her bikinis and flip-flops for snow boots once she and Cutler tie the knot.
"I will relocate to Chicago," she says. "I want us to be together. I don't want to be one of those married couples where one person is on the West Coast, and the other is somewhere else. I do want some normalcy in my life. I want to be a wife."
As for raising a family? It's in the cards.
"We definitely want kids," the ShoeDazzle designer says. "As far as right away, probably not. But definitely in the next few years."
