First thing…dance around the room?  I’m sure I’ll be too excited to do much else 🙂

Once I calm down I’m gonna be straight into planning mode.  I have so many ideas in my head that are all on hold until it’s official.  I have a dream venue already picked out (perfect location, look, and low price), so going to check it out in person and getting that baby booked will be one of the first things I do.

I don’t think I’d call anyone at least for a day, I’d want to just be able to focus on us on the first day.

We bought a bottle of wine before having to call all those people! I don’t really like talking in the phone haha.

Celebrate together, jump up and down, cry… then call people. And please, tell people before you put it online anywhere.

After the initial, “OMG are you serious? Is this for real?!?! Yes, YES, YES!!!” I think the next thing I would do is text my mom.  Yes text, not call.  She texted me when she got engaged so it’s only fair!! Lol 🙂

I think I’d probably ask him if he was sure first XD

I cant decide if i want to wait a day and then tell people? or if i want to start making calls like right away. Im pretty impatient so I think I’ll end up just making the important calls right away. I have wayyyyyyyy too many relatives to give everyone a personal call but my immediate family as well as my grandparents will get a call. Then I will have fun over the facebook love lol. And then we will probably just enjoy being engaged for a few weeks before diving head first into planning. I dont want to plan right away I want to soak it all in and just enjoy the giddyness.

after he did it I thought I would immediately start planning but what I really did was…

 

get a manicure. it was so embarassing to show people my ring when I had been testing nail colors on my left hand the night before lol. If you look at the pic, my middle finger is bright pink and my pointer finger was chipped pale white.
