Well, since Fiance knew that I did not have to work Friday because of Good Friday, he thought that Thursday morning would be the perfect time to propose! He talked to my boss at the beginning of the week and told her what he was planning to do. I have an incredible boss, because she was very excited and said she would take care of finding my sub, etc. Awesome. So Thursday morning came and the proposal happened (I posed this yesterday) after spending the majority of the morning on the phone with family and friends, we packed out bags and set off on the 3 hour drive to our celebration night. When I got into the car, I saw that he had made me a little “driving package” full of bridal magazines, coke and chocolate. Perfect. We went to Oxford, Mississippi which is where we met five years ago. He had rented a room in a bed and breakfast, and arranged for us to look at venues! We went and looked at the church (which I booked a while ago…haha, if you read that post.) He knew that is where I wanted to get married and said he even had a feeling it had been booked, so he went ahead and made sure that it would be okay for us to stop by and see it while we were in Oxford. After looking at the church and taking some pictures to show to family, we went and had cocktails on a balcony overlooking the town square, had some strangers take “engagement” photos of us, and just enjoyed each others company. Then we went and had a nice dinner, and ended the night by bar hopping…yes, I know that this isnt exactly classy, but it sounded pretty fun at the time (not so much this morning.) It was just so nice to immediatly get away together and start all the wedding and “future life” talk. It was perfect. I feel so so so lucky!!!!
