Yesterday was our 5 year anniversary and I had pretty much convinced myself that he wasn’t going to ask me… boy was I wrong!! We were going to go out to dinner after he got off work at 6:00 so when he got home I was ready to go. Right before we left we had a conversation that went a little like this.
HIM: I feel bad.
HIM: Because I didn’t get you anything.
ME: I didn’t get you anything either”
HIM: Yeah, you got me that hat.
ME: A hat isn’t a big deal.
I hadn’t even finished my sentence yet and he pulled the box out of his pocket and got down on his knee. I honestly couldn’t tell you what he said after that except for the “Will you marry me?” part. Obviously I said yes!!!
I loved it and I love him!! It was simple, intimate and special… just the two of us in our living room with Mya whining from her kennel in the bedroom. After that we went to dinner and started calling and texting everyone we know! I took a picture of my ring and sent it out with “Guess what…” as the only text in the message. He had already told his parents, Fearless-Friend, Beautiful-Bestie and Joanna that he was planning to ask me but they were all excited anyways.
I had tried calling my mom but she didn’t answer so I text her the picture and she was like “Is this official?!” I text her back saying “yes” and she called right away! I believe she said that my dad’s exact words were, “How much is this gonna cost me?” you gotta love dads!!
I’ve been wanting to start a blog for a while and this is giving me the perfect excuse! I’ll use this space to keep everyone up-to-date on our wedding plans as well as our everyday comings and goings. It’s gonna be great!
