Okay so here is my proposal story from October 14th!
We had plans to celebrate a week after our anniversary when we’d have some free time (we’re both crazy busy with work/school), by having dinner and such. Fiance came home from work Thursday night and said “Change of plans, pack your bags we leave in the morning!” So I of course wanted to know what we were doing and thought of everything we’ve talked about doing together…. little did I know there was something MUCH bigger in the works! Friday morning we wake up and begin driving. He takes me to the airport (I’m all giggles now!) but doesn’t let me see my ticket and at our terminal I have no idea where ‘San Luis Obispo’ is and sit there confused. Once we arrive in California, we begin our drive… to Hearst Castle! Somewhere I’ve wanted to go for years but never thought we’d get a chance to visit (he really is listening hehe). I’m in awe thinking the day can’t get any better… until we are at The Neptune Pool. Fiance tells me how much he loves me, how he can’t imagine his life without me and asks me to marry him! I’m shaking, crying and so giddy at this point and oblivious to anything around us… until he turns me to see the photographer he hired to follow us all day and capture the proposal! We then had an engagement shoot followed by another tour, an amazing dinner at The Black Cat and listening to the waves crash against the beach back at our hotel as we call everyone and give them the news! He flew us back to where we live in time for a charity Gala we attend each year and surprised me again by having a room for us at the resort! Best. Weekend. Ever.

Wow….that’s amazing. I’m lucky that I got Fiance out of jogging pants long enough to ask me, never mind planning all that.

haha I would have been happy with him in jogging pants! He’s a HUGE planner when it comes to just about anything, so I always knew he’d plan something special but I didn’t think he’d do nearly as much as he did. I feel very lucky!
Thanks ladies for your congrats and compliments! The center diamond was his mothers that she gave to us (very sweet!) and he custom designed the setting. You’re all so nice!
