Alan and I are engaged!
We went out to dinner over the weekend at one of our favorite neighborhood restaurants. The whole way there I was torn over what to order (either the mac and cheese with an order of brussels sprouts or their famous juicy burger). After we parked the car, Alan interrupted my ordering-angst and asked if I wanted to go on a short walk. He had so many sweet things to say I started to cry. Then he got down on one knee (it felt like a movie!) and popped the question. I said yes 🙂 So it’s official!
One of the most fun parts of being engaged is telling people. Everyone always shrieks, gives me a hug and then grabs my left hand, haha.
My ring is rose gold with a champagne diamond—I love its celebratory color!
We shared the news with my family yesterday. And there was 20 minutes of ring examining 😛
The rest of the day, we ate tacos, swam in the pool and got ready to tell more people. It was a perfect weekend!
