- Wedding: August 2011
I am officially engaged! I live in Los Angeles and FH lives in Milwaukee. I went to New York over the weekend to visit my sister and brother in law. I tried to get FH husband to go with me but the story I got was that he was judging some band thing on Saturday so he couldn’t. I got into NY Friday (since it snowed 19 inches and my first flight was delayed!) We were texting and he had all sorts of cover stories of what he was doing that totally seemed valid. It was all stuff that he normally did. Saturday morning I was walking through Central Park with my sister and brother in law and we were, I thought, headed to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. We were walking down a snowy path when I saw someone who looked surprisingly like FH, then I realize it was him. I was in TOTAL shock! I gave him a big hug and squeeled out “What are you doing here?!?!” His reply was “Doing this” at which point he got down on one knee and proposed. I was so surprised to see him there. I was shaking, litterally shaking. I was so happy! It was so nice to see him since I hadn’t seen him in almost two months. We have been planning a wedding alreday for two months so the proposal wasn’t a surprise but how he did it totally was. He is coming to visit in 3 weeks so I was totally expecting it then. It was so nice and romantic. He and my sister had been scheming for two months! I can’t beleive they were able to keep it a secret for so long! I am so happy, so in love, and so glad I can start making official plans!
