- Wedding: October 2013
My new fiance and I (ahhh!) went to his parents cabin in North Georgia to celebrate my 27th birthday to just get out of town and relax. I had my suspicions that there was more to it, but you never know, he could have changed his mind about the timing. Thankfully he didn’t!
My birthday was Saturday and I had requested french toast and eggs for breakfast. I figured if he was going to propose he would do it after that. Friday night he told me he would wake up early to cook and I could stay in bed. He was pretty adamant about that, but I said I didn’t want to eat french toast in bed b/c knowing me I would get syrup every where.
So his alarm went off, but he didn’t get up. I hadn’t slept well the night before (new bed, and a little nervous!) so I was waiting for him to get up so I could go back to sleep. He kept cuddling up to me and kissing me and being all sweet, while I’m thinking get up so I can sleep! lol. I was on my side and he was behind me just laying closely when I went to reach for my chap stick on the night stand (i’m addicted to it). When I opened my eyes to get it I saw an open ring box with a sparkly inches from my face!! I gasped (it scared me!) and almost head butted him from leaning back in shock. I said “Andrew??” and he said “Babe, will you marry me?!” I said “mhmm! Of course I will!!” I said ‘so you’ll put up with me being a bed hog forever? And my stupid little songs?” (I’m always humming little diddies) He said of course and we kissed and then I was like oh yea, the ring! haha
The cutest part of all was he had planned on doing it after breakfast, but he was so excited when he woke up he just couldn’t wait. He said he wanted my birthday to be perfect from the very beginning! And it was. It was so great, definitely the best birthday ever!!
