AHHHHH 2001 posts and Im engaged!
Thank you ALLL! So so much for all your well wishes and kind worlds of congrats! Happy Wedding Day btw Peaches! Im sorry I didnt get a chance to say that yesterday!
I will be posting pictures of the ring soon (here and on blog) but I cant at the moment because my FI’s laptop doesnt have the camera installed!
So I can tell you a bit about how it happened 😀 just for the wait
So I have been wanting to do a bbq with our friends steve and Lindsay for about a year- they bought me a portable bbq for my bday i didnt get to use last summer! What I didnt know was that shawn had been planning on proposing to me with friends for this whole time! So when I proposed the bbq about 2-3 weeks ago, he knew it was the perfect plan for his proposal- because it would be at the beach were we first met two years ago!
So, we got ready the night before for the bbq- I had no idea what was going to happen! Not a clue. So we get there late and our friends are not there yet- I kept telling him to call them because I was worried they got lost in downtown vancouver. The next thing I know we are sitting on a log near the water talking about our first date and the last few years- he kept asking me if I was sure I was ready to be with him forever- wierd questions but I stil had no idea he was going to propose. I thought we were just having one of our normal deep convos. Of course I kept trying to make jokes and he was trying to lead up to the proposal! Eventually we started talking about our families and how I couldnt imagine a day without him, or knowing him. I actually started crying to this idea because the convo was so touching, and the next thing I know he’s on one knee proposing to me on the beach! We both cried and hugged each other. It was one of the most wonderful moments of my life.
My friends finally came (they werent lost, they were in on it!) And we celebrated with a bbq and took pictures then:D
Stay tuned! I will be back later today with pictures! Thanks again ladies!
