- Wedding: February 2014
I thought the bees would be the first to hear when my bf (fiancé!) finally proposed but it has been a whirlwind week so it’s taken me a while. What they don’t tell you is, although it is insanely exciting, it’s also really overwhelming and kinda exhausting when it happens!
The story: Friday started like any normal night. He picked me up at the subway, we grabbed some fast food, hit up Walmart to grab some hot chocolate and marshmallows and headed home to decorate our Christmas tree.
Every year we make a night of it and watch Love Actually (my faaaave!) while setting up our tree. We finished decorating and kicked back with some hot chocolate when all of a sudden he noticed a bare spot on the tree. I was like who cares relax but he forced me to help him. (me: you’re a grown man, you don’t need my help!) so I stand up and outta nowhere he hands me an ornament and says do you wanna put this on the tree?
I look and it’s engraved with will you marry me? And the ring is attached. He gets down on one knee and says cute stuff that I don’t remember cuz I kept saying in my head REMEMBER WHAT HE’S SAYING, FOCUS ON THE WORDS. Haha. But I kept saying are you effing serious?!?!?! And I pulled him up and didn’t even see the ring! He made me out the ornament on the tree and then he put the ring on my finger!
AND THEN our parents showed up 5 minutes later with champagne and chocolate covered strawberries! So precious.
Sorry this is lengthy and I’m on my iPad so I can’t be a thrilling storyteller!
I spent the whole weekend on the phone and now we are going to enjoy December and start the planning in January : )
Thats the story bees… Thanks for all your support my waiting loves! I’ll wait for you on the other side : )
