- Wedding: June 2014
Yesterday I closed on my first home. My mother accompanied me to the closing as I was extremely anxious about the big purchase. After I signed my last signature my mother informed we needed to go to the hospital because my SIL was having her baby! Two weeks before due date! I couldn’t go to my new house right away .So I spent the afternoon in the hospital with my new neice!
My family from out of town was at the hospital which was great because then instead of coming down that following weekend to see my house they could see it last night. I’m still not thinking a THING.
So I get to my house and my friend who is a photographer greets me. I asked her to come so I could get some nice photos of my new home. BF’s family came over well as mine to see the house. still not thinking a THING.
So we are taking photos in the yard, overlooking the city and my friend/photographer says “ok one more!” My now Fiance gets down on one knee and asks me to marry him! It didnt even register what was happening! I said “OH MY GOSH ARE YOU SERIOUS?!” and he’s so nervous. I didnt even say yes right away. Everyone was taking photos and videos and I imagine I was like a deer in headlights! I finally say YES and hug him of course. Then I look around and see friends i didnt even know were there! he had invited without my knowing.
The house keys are now burning a hole in my pocket! and my now Fiance goes to the front door and carries me in! The house is already decorated with engagement banners and balloons. He had contacted the realtor and sellers and gotten the key to the house the day before!
He had already taken my friend/photographer to lunch weeks ago to tell her about the proposal and ask her to hide to take photos. They even staked out the house. The same day i had gone to dinner with her asking to take photos of my house. So she didnt even need to hide!
AND my entire family was told to come down two weeks prior. The baby just HAPPENED to be born the same day!
OH and our MLB team won at home and the new house overlooks the city so we had fireworks to end the perfect day!
So in one day, I got a house, a new niece and a Fiance!
