So on May 20th, a Tuesday, I got home from work around 5pm and pulled into the garage, a seemingly normal day. Brian's car wasn't there, which was totally normal because he never gets home until about an hour after me. I walk over to the stairs and there are rose petals all over them. At this point, I knew. So I walked up the steps to more rose petals, a huge bouquet of roses, candles everywhere, and the song playing that I've always told Brian I want to dance our first dance to (Forever and Ever, Amen). Brian was in the kitchen with everything, and he was so nervous. Apparently he had asked my parents for their blessing the week before, unbeknownst to me, and also had hidden his car across the neighborhood so I wouldn't be suspicious when I got home from work. He told me how much he loved me and got down on one knee, it was so sweet! I said "for real? yes!" right away, then took the ring out of his hand and put it on my own finger #oops! What can I say, I was excited!
Brian had dinner planned at our favorite restaurant, and it was such a fun night telling everyone about our engagement that I could barely even eat! We are so happy, and are hoping to get married sometime next year, so let the wedding planning begin! I am so so so excited, any tips?!
Two days after our engagement, we settled on our house! It was pretty much the best week ever. That weekend was so busy but we are so lucky to have great families who helped us move and unpack. We are completely settled in and we just love our new house so much. I won't overload you with pictures, but here are a few favorites!
Alright, whew, now you are all updated and hopefully I will be back to your regularly scheduled programming ASAP!
