I just found out that this website existed 3 days ago so I’m just poking around because….I got engaged to my dreamboat 2 wks ago today! Hurray!!!!!
My dad actually spoiled the surprise – I wrote the whole story in my “bio” but long story short, my fine fiance reached out to my dad all gentlemanly for permission & then my dad called me all excited, not realizing he was proposed to before I was, hahahaha. He was so cute and happy and excited for me that there is no way I could have been mad about it.
So at that point I was officially on “Engagement Watch: 2013!”
I was tipped off that I should wear something hot when my man suggested going out to dinner at this super awesome farm-to-table restaurant four days later & having a night cap at the bar where we went before he kissed me for the first time. It’s one of the best whiskey bars in Chicago and they do tasting pours kind of like how wine bars do wine tastings so we sipped on the “My Cherie Amour” whiskey flight (gotta love that Stevie Wonder!) Then as we were walking back to my house he stopped at the same spot where we had our first kiss, got down on his knee and pulled out a little box! Adorable! And so personal too <3
I gotta say the single best part about getting engaged is the unconditional tidal wave of love and support that has come our way over the last two weeks. It means SO much to us how happy people are for us. I literally can’t even talk about it without crying bc I’m so happy!
Oh and as for the ring porn, it’s a 1ct round solitaire on a really ornately fillagreed band. SO sparkley! Please excuse my chipping nail polish, haha
