My Engagement Story


In case you missed this excited post, I just recently (aka three days ago) got engaged!! So of course I have to share tons of pictures.

Here's some quick background first...


"Boyfriend" aka Shawn aka FIANCÉ now and I have been dating for almost two years.  How we met is really really lame... don't judge me k??? We met on a facebook dating application. hahaha.  ok...I'm even judging myself right now. But hey, it worked for us so I don't care how corny it is :)  We actually went to the same high school, but never actually knew each other. We went on our first date the week I got home from college for summer after my freshman year of school, and have been going out ever since!

I knew we were going to get engaged at some point. We went and looked at rings together when I was home for a weekend from college about a month ago.  However, I didn't think it was going to happen until May after school was done because Shawn told me the rings I picked out wouldn't be in until the end of April. I was kind of bummed by this because I had been wanting to get engaged for awhile and thought Easter break would be a nice time because I would be at home with him and my family, but will also be going back to school for two more weeks and would see my college friends before going home for the summer.

So...when Shawn told me he wanted to go take pictures of the sunset at Green Lane Park, a pretty park with a lake and look-out we have gone too a lot in the past, I didn't think we would be doing anything besides that!!

He took me out of the car and kissed me. It was cute :)


Then, he told me he loved me, got down on one knee, and ASKED ME TO MARRY HIM!!!


AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH


I was so surprised!!!! 

Happy kisses :)


Shawn had three of his friends hiding in bushes while he proposed, hence why we were able to get all the pictures!!

I was a little emotional in this picture...haha...I really do love my ring!!


We used the center diamond from one of his grandmother's engagement rings.






Ok ok. Sorry for all the pictures haha. There were 110 of the whole thing so I narrowed down pretty well!! Thank you so much to everyone who already offered me congrats and wedding planning advice!! You guys are the best :)

  20. That's super-cute! I love that he had friends waiting like paparazzi! And don't worry about the story of how you met - it's everything after that matters... my boyfriend likes to embellish our story and I let him (for his guy friends), but I'm totally mortified that in 10 years, someone might hear it and believe it (it totally makes me sound sketchy, at least from a girl perspective)! Congrats!! : )
