I can’t believe I finally get to say this…I’M ENGAGED!! My dear Fiance (ahhh!!) proposed to me on my birthday this past Saturday. For our daytime activities, he took me on our ‘first date’ which consisted of Bread Co and the mall (not very exciting, i know, but we were recreating the first date and well, first dates aren’t usually that extravagant). After the mall, we headed back to his apartment. Right before we got to his apartment, my friend texted me Happy Birthday and told me she had just gotten engaged!! I told my Fiance this and he kinda just said “hmm..really?”While he was really thinking “little does she know”. But I was like geez..there goes another person who beat me to it. So we get out of the car and he kind of walks in front of me and opens up the apartment door and lets me walk in. The first thing i see were a trail of roses leading from the front door to his room. I then thought that this was going to be more than just a birthday celebration. I got to his room and there were three bags sitting on his bed and a bouquet of 2 dozen roses. He put on a song that we love and we both started dancing for a minute and then i started to open the first gift. It was a framed picture of the Bible verse “love is patient, love is kind….etc.” The second gift was a sweater that he thought would look good on me (i know, kind of out of place but cute) lol. He told me to go look in the other room in the mirror to see if it would fit. I then came back in and headed towards the third and final bag. It was little and as i was searching, i was sure there was going to be a ring box at the bottom..but there wasn’t. Instead, there was a piece of paper that said, “Look at me, Sweetheart!” I turned around and he was down on one knee!! I immediately began crying my eyes out and he even welled up a bit too. Before I knew it, he was asking me to be his wife. Of course I accepted!! I can’t believe it finally happened. I was so shocked at all of the time and thought he put into his proposal and I will NEVER forget how special he made our engagement day!!
