lol, heck no!  I’d spent most of the day hanging out on the couch in sweats and a cami because I wasn’t feeling well.  I hadn’t even taken a shower that day.  But I didn’t care in the slightest – he loves me when I’m like that and he loves me when I’m all dressed up with my makeup on ๐Ÿ™‚

Nope! He proposed after a long hike in snowshoes up a mountain. It was perfect and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’ll be pretty at the wedding when everyone is looking at me…that night it was just us doing something we love to do.

Not even close, the cat woke me up with the ring on his collar.  Total bed head and morning breath and not even nice pj’s!

I thought I did!  We went out to dinner and I put makeup on too!  But looking back at the pictures…woof!  I looked ill!  Detween being the palest shade of white I have ever been (with a slight tinge of olive green tinge for good measure) and the brown eye makeup, I looked more like I needed a trip to the doctor.

I don’t plan on it, I don’t wear makeup, and the last time I got my eyebrows done… was a year ago?  

So I will most likely look like plain ol’ everyday me.  Unless he does it after I get my hairs done.  Then I will look like plain ol’ fresh from the salon me.

i was not prepared at all! we had went out to a really nice restaurant the weekend before and nothing…so, i had written it off until around the holidays. however, i had recently been diagnosed with breast cancer. that weekend, my family came over to help my buzz my hair (in preparation for losing it). i quickly showered after my new ‘do. when i came out, he had a dozen roses for me and told me he loved me in sickness and in health and got down on his knee! who knew a buzz cut and t-shirt/jeans would do the trick ๐Ÿ™‚

I love how everyone is saying no! But I would have to agree!  We were in Disney World and went to see the fireworks in Epcot.  I had just woken up from a nap and I had three sweatshirts on because it was soo cold in FL!!  I didn’t even want to go to the fireworks..I was tired and hungry=Moody ๐Ÿ™‚ Def could have looked better, but I lovee my proposal story..so it all works out!!

I had flown all night to meet him in London. I’d had two root canals that week and my face was puffed up like a chipmunk! It was cold out so my hair was all crazy and windblown. not a speck of make up. Best part of all. I’m the most emotional bastard on the planet, so I bawled my eyes out. I was a mess. not even a hot mess, just a horrible mess.

I was not at all looking my best! It was finals week and I had no idea he was going to propose when he did!

Haha … of course not!  I decided not to “do” my hair for work that morning and just threw it up because it was the last day before a long weekend.  I regretted not doing my hair all day and couldn’t wait to get home.  Except when I got home,
Fiance was there with surprise tickets for that night’s World Series game (big Yankee fans)!!!  So I had just enough time to get my Yankee gear on and we headed out (bad hair and all!).  I kept complaining about my hair … Fiance insisted no one would pay attention.  He proposed via BLIMP flying over the stadium … it definitely drew some attention.  But I got over the hair!  lol.

I would say that I didn’t look my best.  Here’s a before and after.  Notice the red puffy eyes after we got engaged.  I’m a goner when we say our vowels. 

@ Miss Gidget – ME TOO!  It was cold out, I wish I could have been a hot mess
