Gah! So I had a whole huge thing written and it didn’t go through so I’m retyping!
I actually got engaged on St Pattie’s Day but I’m new here and I couldn’t resist sharing. I met my FI at Starbucks where we both work (dorky I know but cute). He would come into the store where I work all the time to write. Since i write too I was curious. He was cute so we got to talking.
Flash Foward a few months. We were mutual friends with someone I worked with and when I found out she would be going to the Taste of Chicago I said I would go too. Turns out my FI was going too! (I didn’t even know I liked him until he told me that he was going and couldn’t stop thinking about him!) The ENTIRE time we were in Chicago there was some major chemistry. We flirted the whole time and we almost kissed a few times but it wasn’t until he held my hand that I knew he really liked me. He even surprised me with a kiss at the end of the night that totally blew me away.
Flash Foward a yr and 8 months. I had been working two jobs and him one and we were btoh stressed beyond our max so we decided to take a wk off of work and relax. I wanted to go on vacation and he wanted to save money so when he asked if I wanted to go to Chicago for a day of course I said yes. We decided we would go on St Patties day. We planned everything out and the night before he told me not to get too excited it was just a normal day! HA! what a joke.
on St Patties day he had the ring on him the whole day. He had it in his jacket pocket and I didn’t even know. We went everywhere and spent the entire day in the city. We planned on going to Bubba Gumps and Navy Pier at the end of the night since that’s when we first found out we really liked each other. As we walked the Pier we relieved memories from being there last time. (I was even texting my BFF telling her these memories as we were walking and she said “what if he proposes?” and I said “nawww he won’t, but it’s still cute!”) When we go to this bench we were at last time he got down on one knee and before he could ask me anything I freaked and said yess a milllion times. He couldn’t get that ring on me fast enough! I’m stillll so excited. I can’t keep my eyes off my beaut. 🙂
Anyways, here are some pictures for you gals! I look like a hot freaking mess since I was dressed for the cold day and heavy walking. The picture of us kissing is RIGHT before he proposed. I can’t believe he didn’t lose his cool or act nervous AT ALL all day long.
