Shane had told me earlier in the month that we had a family dinner to go to on the 23rd. The day of the "family dinner" Shane's brother Charlie came in to town for Christmas and I was so excited to spend the whole day with him catching up on everything! We spent the morning, and most the afternoon, at Starbucks talking about anything and everything. After that we went back to the house and I started getting ready for the family dinner! Shane had specifically told me to get really dressed up because everyone was planning on having a DSN (dress sexy night). I was so excited and even put awesome eyeliner on! (Bad idea in the end)
|This is Charlie and me after I had gotten all ready and was feelin HOT!|
As I got out of the car I saw a giant white arrow pointing to the pathway cleared in the snow. Above this pathway was a giant sign that read "Memory Lane". It literally had Shane's creativity written all over it. It was right then that I knew this was all going down. I was so nervous, excited, scared, excited, more nervous, and then really excited!
|He made this whole sign himself!|
After my wonderful walk down memory lane I came to another envelope...now don't judge me but for the life of me I can NOT remember what it even said. My nerves were so out of control I can't even explain what was going on! I was excited and nervous and I honestly felt like I was in a movie!
THAT'S RIGHT! I GOT A VW BUG!!! She is a 1967...with 65 fenders :) I am the luckiest girl in the whole entire world! Now we have the bus and the bug. I am in heaven! Wanna know the 2nd best part?? Shane got all of my family to come down so they could be there! It was the best surprise I have ever had! We were able to have both of our families be a part of our engagement. After he proposed and we started walking towards the bug I noticed my Mom, Dad, Kjandyce, Braxton and Ashley, and even my GRANDPARENTS!!! I am extremely close with my grandparents so I about died when I saw that they were there! Seriously....best day of my life.
So there it is! My engagement story! I'm sorry it took me so long to finally blog about it. Since then there have been a few family things going on and I have to admit I slightly lost the motivation to blog about it. Buuuut here I am! I promise I won't have such a loooooong amount of time between posts ever again!!
