HE PUT A RING ON IT! Brian has asked me to marry him. Let me tell you this whole thing was unexpected. We have been dating for 3 years (on December 20th) and I have been hinting about it. Of course, he started to feel the pressure from everyone else even from my BOYS since we’re both getting older and I have my boys from my previous marriage. My boys have asked both of us if we were ever going to get married because they wanted to see me married. Which to me was adorable.
Our Engagement Story – The Day Of
We have been planning to go see the Christmas lights with the boys and our best friends for a few days. I ended up inviting my parents, my sister, and cousin because they have kids and figured they would enjoy it as well. It’s the day of and we meet at the Rotary Botanical Gardens where they have the Christmas lights. It was so crazy busy because they open at 5 pm when it’s dark out.
We’re walking through the lights and the kids are loving it. My mom and dad have their phones out so they could Facebook Live the scenery (typical of my parents). I didn’t think anything of it because that’s just what they do whenever we do something fun as a family.
We get to a certain part of the Botanical Gardens where the lights are extremely pretty and we’re all taking pictures. So I asked my dad to take a picture of Brian, the boys and I cause duh I like to have photos of us 4 together.
I’m patiently waiting for my dad to take the picture and all of a sudden Brian says “Wait before you do!” and he tries to get down on one knee, my first reaction was “DON’T YOU DARE” and I RUN! LOL (If you’re friends with me on Facebook, you know what I’m talking about LOL). Eventually, I come back to him and he asks me to marry him.
I was completely shocked that it even happened because I was NOT expecting it to happen this year. Funny how he does it 2 weeks before Christmas and a week before we hit 3 years. I remember my son Rylan saying “IS THIS FOR REAL?” because he too was excited.
I really hated how everyone KNEW and I was completely clueless the whole time. I just thought we were going to see the Christmas lights lol. It was seriously the best night ever though. We have a picked a date but we will not be sharing it until we do our engagement photos. So STAY TUNED!
