Just got engaged tonight! The Mr to be and I have been together 10 months and moved into our new apartment today. He moved into my place a few months ago but this is our first place together so it’s all very exciting!
After a full day of coordinating movers and utilities, unpacking and wrangling our 2 kittens (3mo) and puppy (8mo) we were exhausted and ready for some dinner. We grabbed burgers at our local pub and had a great time just relaxing and celebrating. When we got home he put on “our song”: All I want is You from Juno. He asks me to dance since its our first night in our new place. We’re slow dancing and it’s so sweet and I’m so happy. Then he stops and calls the puppy over. He says “Jude. Sit!” “Jude, propose!” and Jude the puppy stands up on his hind legs to reveal a heart shaped dog tag that reads, “Will you marry us?” the tag has all their names (the mr and the pup and the kittens) engraved on it. I’m speechless and A is down on one knee with the ring box open. I always thought I would cry when it happened….but I’m just giddily unbelievably happy!
Fun fact: my sister just got engaged 6 days ago! We’re less than a year apart and close. This will be a blast! A was sweet enough to ask her last week after her engagement if she would like him to wait a little bit longer so she could have her moment…her response: “no way, I just ho I didn’t steal her thunder by getting engaged first!” I love my sis and my man and can’t wait to plan a fun, small, laid back wedding! : )

I’ll get pics up soon! : ) it was like a commercial for literally about 60 seconds until one of the kittens managed to choke himself on his collar (wth?)…it was completely stuck in his mouth and he was running and thrashing and hissing.
A is such a sweetheart and took one for the team and grabbed him immediately untangled him…suffering a big scratch to his ring finger. So now I’ve got bling and he’s got a spiderman bandaids! Once we knew the kitten was ok we had quite the laugh over the timing!
Looking at spring/summer 2013 and should have a date soon!
Juliepants: thanks for the compliment! We are thrilled to death for each other and it’s going to be fun to go to wedding shows and such together. We’ll both be having fairly small laid back affairs…but we have very different taste (she’s more bohemian I’m more cutesy/crafty) so it will be cool to see what we each come up with.
