- Wedding: May 2012
We got engaged last night. It’s still a little surreal. We haven’t even told everyone yet, but I’m ecstatic to tell.
From time to time, I’m a major goofball and my fiance encourages this. Keep this in mind.
My fiance has two cats that he adopted from a shelter a few months ago. The boy is an oversized cuddle-bug and the girl is a criminal mastermind. Both are extremely food-motivated, so I thought it would be fun to try and teach them tricks.
After being chased for a while because of visibly handling the treat container, we spent probably twenty minutes teaching them to respond to a couple commands. It went pretty well at first, but then degenerated into us laughing as the female tried to slap the treats out of my hand and the male trying to snuggle me into handing them over. As the mayhem subsided, he got down on one knee.
At first, I wasn’t sure what he was doing. He is tall and I even though I was in a chair, it didn’t register that he was on one knee. He just looked like he was going to play with the cats, but then he started saying how much he loves me and wants me to be his wife. I finally started to catch on and he asked me to marry him. Of course, I said yes! So that’s our proposal!
Having talked about marriage plenty, we knew that a May wedding would work best for both of us and our families. I was thinking a 16 month engagement would allow me plenty of time to plan. Well, it turns out that he doesn’t want to wait that long. Now I’m planning for a May 2012 wedding.
Wish me luck, and sanity!
