Engaged...

 
A year ago today, around this exact time that I am posting this... Trevor proposed to me.
My life hasn't been the same since, which I am grateful, because it has been more then I could have ever imagined for myself. He is more then I ever thought I could have, and I love him so much.
I thought I would honor the day by sharing the Proposal Story...

Well me and Trevor had decided to get married well before we were "officially" engaged. Because we did this backwards, waiting for the proposal was interesting. We both knew we were getting married, and there was a window of time where I was just waiting for him to ask me!! I was expecting the proposal... WHICH Trevor knew I was expecting and waiting for, so he decided to really surprise me.
I honestly didn't think he would be able to do it and have it be a surprise, I figured I would clue in, since I was waiting for it.
Everywhere we went, anything we did, I would almost wait for it to happen and it never did. He had surprised me by taking me to one of my favorite bands concerts (I just knew he was going to do it then) But he didn't. Any date, anything we did, this continued where I just knew it was going to happen. But nothing every happened. Then one day I hadn't been feeling all too well, and was enjoying my sweat pants and a t-shirt, no make up, glasses on. Trevor came home from work, and wanted to hang out. He took me to the park, and we were walking around looking at the ducks and lake etc just talking. He had his hand in his pocket the whole time so I was starting to get suspicious. I remember thinking, "He better not ask me, I am all ugly right now." Then he pulls out something from his pocket and says "Hey will you marry me?" I look and it's this big fake pirate treasure ring. I laughed but all at the same time was thinking it was real before I saw the ring. We laughed and went back to Trevor's to have dinner and watch a movie.
After the movie we get up and ready for Trevor to take me home. He goes to get something in his room, so I go and sit on his bed and to be honest I don't remember right now what I was talking about but here I was chatting away, when Trevor turns towards me and in the middle of my sentence opens a box and says, "So do you want to marry me.... for real?" I was looking for the fake ring in the box, but I wasn't seeing it, this thing was REAL! I couldn't believe it. I have never been so shocked!
The past weeks here I was waiting for it, looking for it, and he managed to totally surprise me. Here I am in sweat pants and a t-shirt, my hair all crazy, no make-up on, wearing my glasses. Normally I would have been horrified I wasn't looking "breathtaking" for this moment. But it was perfect. Trevor went on to tell me how he knew if he did some big romantic event I would know instantly it was going to be happening and he wanted it to be a surprise for me. Well it sure was!
Plus, it was perfectly our style. Sitting in my scrubs, relaxing, and then being totally surprised. It was real and genuine, no grand gestures etc. It was a pure and simple proposal from someone I love and am so excited to be with. At one point, I made the comment about how we are going to spend the rest of our lives together. My favorite part of the proposal was when Trevor replied to that and said, "Yah, and we are going to have fun!" I love it. I can not wait to see what the rest of our amazing new life together will bring, and it will be FUN, there is no doubt about that! (:


This was taken the day after we were engaged, we went out to dinner to celebrate!

  13. How fun! First time by your blog and am loving reading your posts! So fun!

    I loved your proposal story! So sweet!!

    My husband and I have known each other since Kindergarten, we great friends in college, and knew when we finally decided to take the plunge and start dating that we would know right away....marriage or nothing. Well it was definitely marriage, and we knew right away. :) I had that whole "wating for the ring" period too...haha! I dared him to surprise me...and he actually pulled it off.

    Enjoy your weekend!!
