My Engagement!

The last weekend in September was my Birthday weekend and also the best weekend of my life- My boyfriend of over 5 years proposed!  The weekend was one I'll never forget, filled with so much love and endless good times.  The weekend started with a Friday afternoon proposal, I'll save the details but it had to do with a scavenger hunt that ended with a ring:)

I was so happy after the proposal and thought we would have the rest of the weekend together to spend some QT, but Eric went above and beyond and threw me a surprise birthday party that night with all of my family and best friends.  When I got to the party we told everyone the wonderful news about our engagement- talk about a double surprise party!

What would be more perfect after the best night of your life than mani-pedi's with your mom, sister and best friend the next morning? NOTHING. Eric had appointments setup for the 4 of us to get pampered saturday morning and relish in my bride-to-be bliss.

The fun didn't end there, we celebrated all weekend with a family BBQ, a little more spa action and a Birthday dinner.  I'm beyond amazed at the thought and time Eric put into making our engagement so special, just one of the reasons I love him so much! Sorry, I'm trying not to get too mushy on you guys ;) A big thanks to everyone who celebrated with us and shared their love and support. It's amazing how many fans you rack up after dating for 5 years.

Next step- planning our wedding! I'll be posting all throughout the process on ways to make the process as stress-free, affordable and enjoyable as possible. Please share your tips and tricks with me along the way! Print Friendly and PDF
