Wedding Wednesday - The Engagement

This is a new weekly feature that I am going to host where I give out the gory details about my wedding. Because, it was a huge undertaking and by golly I should get some more mileage out of that very expensive day! I know I have shared some photos before and some I may re-share while I go through and discuss the various parts of one of the most fun days of my life.

So for installment one we have… dun dun dun… THE Engagement..

March 2nd, 2006 I had a snow day from college. It was really snowy and the roads were not good. I had to work until noon and then I had the rest of the day off. I went to Hungry Howie’s and picked up a supreme pizza and stopped by the corner store picked up a 12 pack of Killians. My now husband was busy working because he worked full-time even when we were in school. So I kept emailing/calling telling him about how much fun I was having on my snow day and how he should join me. Well he finally did around mid-afternoon and we were being really being lazy and took a 2 and a half hour nap.. We drank some Killians and had some pizza then we watched part of Never Been Kissed. Do not ask me how I got him to watch that because I have no idea.

However….

At like 7:40 he's like we gotta get ready to go to Applebee’s and turned on music. So I turned off the TV (and he later said if I had not, he wouldn’t have proposed that night) and started getting ready. The song he put on was, "How forever feels" by Kenny Chesney. And I of course was dancing around the room like crazy, being silly, while brushing my teeth and putting on makeup. Of course the whole time during the song thinking, man I want to know how forever feels, ha ha... SO AFTER thee song he comes over to me washing my hands and took my arm and I was like can't I finish washing my hands and he said, "No, I want to know how forever feels." he got down on a knee and said.. "Will you marry me?" and I of course said OH MY GOD.. started crying, hugged him, kissed him, said I love you and then I went after the ring, which was a gorgeous white gold princess cut with 3 stones which was 1 carat. He also was a dear and had it resized before he gave it to me so I could wear it right away!
