My Engagement Story


I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who expressed their congratulations and well wishes.  I'm really excited and I can't wait until April (or May) when I become a married woman!  Many of you are asking for my engagement story so I'll give you a rundown after the jump :)






Top- Forever 21
Skirt- H&M
Shoes- Zara
Clutch- Betsey Johnson

It was our last day in Kona and we were meeting a friend for a drink before our "special dinner".  When the time came, we walked to the lobby of the hotel and I waited until a staff member directed us to a golf cart.  He took us on a ride to the beach where there was one solitary table on the beach.  Of course I asked Kevin if that was our table.  And yes, it was!

Apparently Kevin had pre selected our menu with my favorite dishes!  I had an amazing caprese salad as an appetizer and lobster pasta for an entree.  While we enjoyed our dinner and our wine we had the pleasure of watching the sunset while our waiter made sure to take a bunch of pictures.  In the darkness (except for a few tiki torches)  the waiter asked Kevin if we were ready for dessert.  Of course, he said yes.

When my mystery dessert arrived it had a nice message written in chocolate on the plate.  "Will you marry me?"  I was completely shocked!  When I looked over at Kevin he was already on one knee with the ring.  I honestly don't even know if I even said yes!  I even asked him if I could put it on!  It was an amazing moment and even now it's still crazy to me.

It's weird wearing jewelry to bed (I never wear any jewelry when I get home) and especially to work.  It's weird that I have a fiance now.  Oh, and it's totally weird having to plan this event.  It all feels so fast, even if it was two and a half years in the making :)






xoxo
