I am still in so much shock that it really happened! I love the way it went down. In my parents backyeard, surrounded by my family, with lots of laughs and love.
I will start with Thursday. After work I had an appointment to get my braces checked on, and they put a new wire in which later that night woke me up out of sleep because my mouth was getting sore. Yesterday at work I was super tired and a little down because my mouth was hurting a lot. We work at the same company, and he had messaged me and asked if I could take my break because he had a surprise for me. So I take a break and meet him, and he presented me with…..Backstreet Boys tickets! I am one of those girls that is stuck in the music of the late 90’s/early 00’s so I was estactic! It was really hard to focus on work for the rest of the day and I was telling my friend I can’t imagine the day getting better.
Last week, we had planned with my family to go over there for dinner becacuse my grandma was making spaghetti. For the record, I will travel near and far for spaghetti–favorite food EVER. Also, my mother had said to me last week that she wanted to take some updated pictures of my honey, myself and two brothers ‘her kids’. So after work I ran home, fixed my makeup and hair a little bit (thank goodness) and we headed over to parents house.
Earlier in the week, I had told my honey that I hope she isn’t taking pictures to plan on putting on shirts for our Disneyland trip in two weeks, because I would NOT be wearing a shirt with my picture on it. haha. I later found out he was happy I thought this because it is SO DIFFICULT to surprise me.
We get over to the parents house and I run around telling everyone that I am going to see the Backstreet Boys and this is the best day ever! AFter that, we all went into the backyard and my mom is taking pictures of brothers, FI and I … I was whining that she shouldn’t be making us look into the sun haha. My dad was also outside taking pictures and grandma came outside to see as well.
My mom did a few poses with all of us, and then she said she wanted a picture of FI and I so I sit on his lap, she takes a picture…. I had one eye shut and she said “that was a good one!” I said “except for the fact one eyeball is completely shut!” and then my FI stood me up and said “I love you, and I want to know if you will marry me”…he got back down on one knee and presented my with the most gorgeous ring ever. I backed up and said/yelled “What the F$#%!!! Are you serious?!” lmao. He said that yes, he was serious. I looked around at my entire family in complete shock before I said yes.
And that’s it! We all went inside and had spaghetti and my perfect day was complete! I am so excited that I have finally found the one that is my perfect counterpart.
Less than three minutes after it happened, my dad asked when the big day is. So I guess I better get to planning!
