So I posted two weeks ago about not getting my hopes up for engagement on our anniversary. Somehow, I managed to still get my hopes up. He didn’t propose but he put so much love and thought into our anniversary.
We checked into our beautiful hotel room at the Omni hotel in Philadelphia. There was wine, cheese, and fruit waiting for us.
Then we took a cab to El Vez. He told me we were going to Delfriscos, but I’ve been DYING to go to El Vez. Had an amazing meal and a pitcher of margaritas. Surprise #1.
He bought me pearl earrings. REALLY BEAUTIFUL earrings.
We went to dinner and the comedy club. Back to our room…lovely evening. 🙂
Now, he has always always always been a “live for the moment” kind of guy. Never talked future or anything. Basically never gave me hope of an engagement. Then, laying in bed that night, he said “I think we will be engaged within the year!” Cue my draw drop. Surprise #2. He said “Don’t expect it in March or April, but probably by September or October. Seriously, you have NO IDEA how huge this is for him. Granted, we had a nice talk over dinner about how we feel like we’re MORE in love. Like things have changed for both of us. We fall asleep blissfully.
The next morning he sent me off to the spa at the hotel for a massage and hot tub relaxation. Surprise #3. Wonderful.
Last night, he says, “Babe, when your lease is up, I think we ought to look for places in between both jobs. Maybe near a train station so I can have an easy commute to work.” Then flips to HGTV to House Hunters. “You know what will be great about marrying you? We can buy a crappy house and fix it up and make it our own.” UM SURPRISE #4.
It’s been hard enough for him to talk future, but to bring it up willingly?!?! I will do everything in my power to be patient. The less I bring it up, the more he comes around. But it’s nice to know he finally feels confident saying I’m THE ONE!! 🙂
