We went out for a nice dinner, so we were both realllyyyyy dressed up. I’m glad we were, as a friend was around and took pictures right after it happened! ๐Ÿ™‚

Nope. I can’t remember what I was wearing, but I was in the middle of putting up a mini-blind, so likely I was not dressed up. Haha.

We were out to dinner, so we both looked fairly nice, though I had had a disaster day and looked a bit disheveled. Also, my shirt was gaping open in the front, which I did not know til after I saw the pictures. Woohoo, free show!

Nope.  I was wearing sweats and sitting on the couch.  Attractive.

I looked like crap. LOL, we had been snorkeling all morning so I had zero makeup on, my hair was a clumpy dried out saltwater mess. Since he actually proposed while snorkeling too, when we came onshore, he snapped a couple of pictures of me to capture the moment so I had my snorkel mask shoved upward on my head so I’ve got all these mask lines on my face and then the mask had shoved my wet hair upward so it’s sticking up in weird places. Definitely a Kodak moment!

Nope, I was walking in from the garage coming home from work.  Hot Mess.

Heck NO! I wash my hair every other day, and it happened to be the night I didn’t wash my hair. I had a feeling he was going to propose but had been waiting for MONTHS, so I didn’t feel that I needed to get dressed up that night just incase it wasn’t “the” night.

I did wear a nice shirt I had went out and bought that day, some jeans and heels. We went to a very nice restaurant with some friends, but my camera died on the way there. So I didn’t even get to take a picture of the beautiful arrangement my ring came out on ๐Ÿ™ I’m there with you ladies!

I had been up at 4am, been on 2 planes, I was hot, sweaty, tired, and kind of grody. But I did take a shower right after we got engaged so then I looked much nicer ๐Ÿ™‚

We were a bit like you Girlwitharing, we’d been traveling for almost two weeks around Costa Rica with just our backpacks, washing our clothes in the sink.  We’d also just been biking and hiking and I’d fallen into some really itchy bushes as well as cried because the overlook we hiked to had all sorts of cut down trees (a little fallen paradise).  But the scenery was absolutely gorgeous when we got back down to the beach and my husband doesn’t really care about having dirty clothes so I don’t think it’s something he noticed or cared about.

It could have been worse I guess.  I had just gotten off of work, and I work at a hotel, so I was in a pencil skirt, blouse and pink scarf.

I changed right after and we went to dinner.

@CorgiTales same thing for me! I got stuck in Atlanta between flights so I didn’t even have a clean pair of clothes (they sent my baggage on).  I was disgusting and had NO idea it was coming! Thankfully he asked anyway ๐Ÿ™‚
