I hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving!!!!!!!
I know I did 😀
CHRIS PROPOSED!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sadly that picture doesn’t do the ring justice. It is so incredibly sparkly and perfect and I’m the happiest girl in the world!
So here’s the story:
We went to my aunt’s house yesterday for Thanksgiving. As I said earlier this week I was super excited to see my cousin since she is pregnant! After eating all of the wonderful food (and feeling almost sick from being so full haha) and hanging out for a while, Whitney suggested that we go over to her condo to check out her decorated baby room. I didn’t think for one second that something was “off”.
So we went to her condo and I ooed and ahhed over her baby room…it’s so stinkin’ cute! The baby blues and the crib and the rocking chair. After a while I was thinking that we should probably go back to my aunt’s house because we had been gone for a while and needed to go to my dad’s later in the evening.
We start driving back to my aunt’s house and she calls Whitney to see when we’re coming back. She was on bluetooth in the car and so I could hear the conversation and all before Nikki could say anything, Whitney “accidentally hung up on her” (she actually hung up because she didn’t want my aunt to give anything away). I was still completely oblivious to what was going on.
We are driving through my aunt’s neighborhood and up ahead I see Chris standing in the driveway with his coat on. I look at Whitney and I kept saying “What is he doing?”. I honestly thought he was waiting for me to get back so we could leave to go to my dad’s haha.
And then we pulled into the driveway and this is what I saw:
I think my mouth dropped open to the floor. I was seriously in shock! And then my heart starting racing with pure excitement :).
I got out of the car and Whitney went inside (the entire side of my mom’s family was apparently watching us through the windows haha). I don’t remember everything that Chris said because I was on cloud 9 and wasn’t thinking straight. But he told me how much he loved me and that he wanted to propose to me at the place we met (we met at this very house over 4 years ago).
And then he got on one knee and popped open the ring box….asked me to marry him…and I may have squealed (at least on the inside) and of course I said yes!
Everyone inside came rushing out to congratulate us, people across the street were clapping (I guess they were watching the whole thing), cars that were driving by were stopping. It was the perfect engagement. Absolutely perfect.
I had no idea that it was going to happen. It was a complete surprise. And I love that it happened at the same place we met – props to Chris for thinking of that one ;).
Here are some pics that we took after:
We had champagne and cookies awaiting us inside
Whitney gave me a super cute frame that says something like “bling bling…I’ve got the ring”:
I’m so in love with Chris and so so so incredibly happy to now be his fiance 😀
I hope you all have a fabulous day! I’ve a bunch of people to see and show my ring off too ;).
