It’s been almost a week now, and I still can’t believe it. 12/29/12, a day that will live in infamy..
So we were at a family party in honor of my brother visiting from California for the week. We don’t see him a lot. My SO was there and we had also invited his parents, since we are a pretty tightknit group. I was in the corner talking to my uncle Jon and his cousin Richard, when Michael called me over to come say hi to his parents, who had just arrived. He said ‘Look babe, my mom got Buckley (our dachshund) a new sweater.’ I kind of brushed it off at first and went to say hi to his parents. He kept pushing the dog at me so I finally looked at the shirt. It said “Will you marry me?” and when I looked up, he was down on one knee. In total shock I backed up a few steps (put my beer down) covered my mouth and started saying “omg omg omg”. I heard someone say ‘You haven’t said yes yet!” And I got down on the floor with my FIANCE and said OF COURSE!
It couldn’t have been more perfect. My whole family was there, and I found out later that he had called my grandparents in Florida to ask for their permission first. How sweet! I’m beyond excited and I can’t wait to start planning!
