- Wedding: April 2014
Because thats when my SO wanted to propose. But, this funny thing happened:
TAKE ME OFF THE LIST! WE ARE ENGAGED! guess november is out? haha!
I had a feeling this might happen. We were going to Chicago for a weekend trip and the whole week before he was acting strange. Going out to the mall for hours “just cuz”. Making texts that I couldnt see. Being home later than normal from work. He was either with another girl or looking at rings, and I reaaally doubted option 1. haha.
So, fast forward to Saturday. All day he is a goof ball. We had breakfast at the hotel on the roof and he just kept asking me if “today is th best day ever”. I was like “today just started, but I guess??” ANd we just kept winking at me! haha! “I love you *wink*”. We went out to downtown Chicago, did some shopping and stuff. Then we went to the John Hancock Tower. At the top, he was acting reallly strange. He went into the bathroom every 10 minutes (making phone calls! to my mom!). I knew it may happen and I was scared so I was kinda avoiding it. And my stomach didnt take well to the elevator ride. So I DID NOT want it to happen there or I might have passed out. I told him I didnt feel well and he looked sad but go the hint.
Then we went to Millenium Park. It was a GORGEOUS day. People were out just relaxing and enjoying the good day. We walked and looked at all the statues and took sillly pictures together in front of all of them. Then we went to this fountain in the park with columns and beautiful flowers. Very greek-romance. He said “lets get our picture taken in front of this too!” So he hands the camera to a stranger for the picture and BOOM, he asked me and got the whole thing on camera (turns out the woman was a professional photographer and she took AMAZING shots). I bawled like a baby haha. I then jokingly called him a jerk for telling me november and then doingi t now. haha!
He told me when we looked at rings at the store about 3 weeks ago, he suddenly knew he coudlnt wait anymore. Not another second. He did lots of research and worked really hard and picked up this ring the day before we left for Chicago. So in the end, the waiting bug bit him too! haha! We are so happy 🙂
