So as most of you know from Facebook, Twitter and Instagram A and I got engaged on Wednesday evening! It was absolutely perfect and I could not ask for a better proposal! But I know you want the story right? You want the deets!
So The One with the Engagement (ALA friends)
I was out and about and A usually gets home a little after 5. I walked in around 5:30 after stopping to get packages. and when I went to walk up the stairs I saw an envelope it said “The Neely.” Do you guys watch How I met your mother if not here is what it was referring to…
The font was identical but I did not put it together. I opened the envelope to find a card that said
Neely’s Amazing RACE(side note I have always wanted to go on and win the Amazing Race…life list.) The cards looked identical to the ones on the show and it was my first clue it said to go to where our first date was and my next clue would be waiting.
Now mind you in normal non 5 PM non Christmas traffic this drive would have taken 10 minutes tops…took me nearly an hour. I called Ashley and my mom screaming and freaking out. They calmed me down thankfully.
I got the our first date spot which had a clue telling me to go to our first kiss location. I went there and got a clue telling me to go to the place where he told me he loved me. That happened to be my moms house. She was not home so the clue was taped to the garage. That clue said to go where we ate the most amazing bananas foster(our anniversary dinner.) So I went to Eddie V’s and that clue said to go to the bridge with the teddy bears. At this point I got confused…WHAT BRIDGE!? What BEARS!? I had to call him…thankfully he guided me and said my next clue would be there.
I was like crap Im going to run out of gas! So I got there and I saw this bridge that was just filled with Christmas lights…
He was there…there wasn’t a final clue.
I walked up to my amazing at the time boyfriend now future husband and he said some amazing things then he dropped to one knee and asked me to marry him.
I cried, I freaked out, we hugged and kissed and shared such a special moment together. Then of course we came home and called family and friends and nearly shut down facebook hahaha.
Thank you so much for all the congrats and well wishes. We are so very excited and I cant wait to share the wedding journey on the blog with everyone! I promise I wont over do it though 🙂
Thanks again everyone and I hope you enjoyed my loves most creative proposal 🙂
