Show us your life - Proposal Stories

So funny that Kelly is doing proposal stories today! We are getting married NEXT WEEKEND, so this is perfect timing!!!! :)

We went to Orange Beach! Even though it was chilly, it was still really pretty! I mean who doesn't like waking up to the ocean everyday! We went down to celebrate E's birthday on Thursday, but little did I know, so much more was planned! E and I are both big cooks so we decided we would cook more than go out to eat, so on his birthday, we cooked the BEST shrimp dish EVER! I made him a Key Lime Cheesecake for his birthday before we went. Anyway...we cooked dinner and were sitting around enjoying each other and wine when he asked for some cheesecake! He mentioned that he as going to go change clothes and get comfortable if I would fix the cheesecake. He came back to the kitchen a few minutes later and handed me a present. I probably looked at him funny and he said, I got you something for MY birthday! I thought that was odd, but opened it anyway. It looked and felt like a book, so I assumed that is what it was. But I opened it to a book that had two sides. One side was a picture of a beautiful ring and the other side were the words..."Will you marry me?" I was shocked at this point, looked to see that E was on one knee with a ring in his hand. I think I said, "Is this for real?" and He asked me if I would marry him, I said yes! That is how he wanted to celebrate his birthday!! Isn't that sweet?!

We enjoyed the rest of the weekend in newly engaged bliss!

  1. It's funny that you brought that up today. We have been running around like crazy people lately planning everything and making sure everything will be absolutely perfect (which everything will be). Sometimes all the craziness makes it hard to remember what we r doing all this for, so it's awesome to be reminded of that night and get lost in that memory for a bit. Thanks fiancee!
