|WE'RE ENGAGED- pictures and story.
||[Feb. 12th, 2011|05:02 pm]
A little over 6 years after Joe and I first started dating, we are ENGAGED! He proposed on my birthday (February 9th). He sent roses to my work in the morning, which was very sweet and threw me off, because I figured that's what I would be getting for my birthday. After work, we went to dinner at Chili's, then we went to our hotel, The Comfort Suites in Old Town Clovis, to room 112. He put on "Ready For Love" by Bad Company (lately, it has been "our song"), and then got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. Of COURSE I said yes. I actually said yes twice, because I was crying and I wasn't sure if he heard me the first time!
We enjoyed the evening just the two of us, and then went around telling family the next day. I had a birthday party last night where I finally was able to tell most of my friends in person, and then I released it to Facebook and Twitter, and here on LiveJournal to a select few close friends.
We are so excited! Of course, I am already getting ideas of locations, photographers, caterer's, dresses, etc. I would ideally like to have most things planned and out of the way as soon as we can, so we can just spend the rest of the time saving money and enjoying the process. We're looking to set the date on May 19, 2012, but of course that mostly depends on the right venue.
I will be making public posts about the process every once in awhile, and linking them on Twitter & Facebook for all to enjoy.
NOW WHAT YOU ALL WANT TO SEE--- ring pictures!
Reenacting the moment
In the Box
Here are some pictures of the ring in the roses Joe gave me. Joe had this idea, but I actually took the pictures.
I LOVE the inset diamonds, and this picture really shows them off
This is a good shot of what it looks like on my hand. It's really the perfect size for me
