Yikes, where do I even start?
On Friday, we woke up and headed to our house closing. It was a perfect sunny fall morning and I was feeling pretty ready to sign my name a billion times and get into more debt that I’ve ever been. That’s how my mom kindly described buying a house
And I’m happy to report that it went off without a hitch!
This is me giving Joey the “I’m NOT doing that jumping in the air picture with you” face.
We went with the good old key dangling picture instead, because that’s slightly less cheesy and overdone.
And then this happened.
My face in that last picture just says it all, doesn’t it?
I obviously said yes. Or maybe something more like “OH MY GOSH, YES!” But the details are a little fuzzy because I was in a dumbstruck state of pure excitement and surprise. I didn’t see it coming at all but I couldn’t be happier.
This was the scene inside our house. Instead of going to bowling as I’d thought, Joey had apparently spent the entire night doing this.
Proposals are obviously very personal and unique to each couple, but I can honestly say I couldn’t have dreamt up a more perfect way to get engaged. And then out of nowhere a puppy showed up. I have no idea who it belonged to and I haven’t seen it since but we thought it was a hilarious ending to such a special moment.
As you can imagine, our plan to have a productive packing day was completely blown out of the water, as we just spent the rest of the day wining and dining in celebration. It was probably for the best considering I couldn’t stop shaking for what felt like the rest of the day. We took ourselves to lunch — And saw Kenneth Faried! Guys, Manimal and I both ordered pizzas! — then later had dinner with our families. Then more dinner with more family on Saturday! Any more celebrating and I won’t fit in my jeans anymore.
I’m really hoping to put up a post about all the house stuff that’s going on, but this seemed more important. I’m so stoked to marry my best friend and spend an eternity driving him insane by making him pose for pictures like this
