Fill in the Blank Friday

OK it is Fill in the Blank Friday again ...go here to link up with Lauren's blog at "the little things we do"

Ok here goes:

1. When I wake up in the morning, the first thing I do is : go to the bathroom. I know...I KNOW...but it is true, that's what I do.

2. I can hardly wait for: this Sunday! We are visiting our first VENUE!

3. The quickest way to my heart is ice cream because  I LOVE IT and it makes me smile - blue bell homemade vanilla please.

4. A little known fact about me is  I wasn't one of those girls dreaming about their wedding growing up so I AM CLUELESS as to what I want or do not want..I just wasn't girly. 

5. The best part of my job is I get to go to awesome events like YESTERDAY I got to see Condoleezza Rice speak...yeah it was awesome. Yes I am from you can probably figure out my political views.

6. Something I just couldn't live without is  mascara - I have like zero eyelashes.

7.  Something useful that I wish I knew how to do is be crafty. I suck at it.

How it happened

I realized I never fully told the story of how we became ENGAGED:

I got off of work early on Thursday, April 5. As B's birthday is the 7th we had planned to go out that night and celebrate just the two of us. I should have known something was up when he showed up at 4 in the afternoon. We decided to go get cocktails before dinner so I started getting ready much quicker.

As I went towards the front door there he was with my ring in his hands. I was stunned. He asked me to marry him and I said "are you kidding me, are you serious" and then I just started jumping up and down saying yes. It was sweet and very much us. Roxy was running around looking at me like I was crazy. It was hands down the best day of my life.

Afterwards I called EVERYONE- but first my parents (neither answered) then my brother - he was the very first person I told. I then retried calling my parents (mom answered) and she said "congrats, it's beautiful isn't it?" - That's when I knew he had showed my ring to my parents - they knew it was going to happen before I did. I love that he asked. FINALLY my dad called me back. I knew how happy my family was for this day to come.

We went to his dad's office (his dad has an office in Htown and in Dtown and was just by chance in Htown that night) and showed him. Everyone was very excited for us. His dad's office had a party going on and we had our pictures taken, I hope to get a hold of one of those.

Afterwards we headed to dinner at Haven (AMAZING!) and then to The Tasting Room to open a bottle of champagne and just be together.

Fill in the blank friday

It is Fill in the Blank Friday again...please link up with Lauren over here-

1. Today is a great day because - I am headed to the ATX to see my best friend!

2. Tomorrow I will - be at a spa. I CANNOT wait. The bestie and I are going to a spa weekend.

3. My favorite time of day is the afternoon because it is usually a lot less hectic than the morning.

4. Sometimes you just have to - say to heck with this and pour a glass of wine and enjoy the afternoon.

5. A song that I just can't get enough of lately is - I don't really have one at the moment. I listen to books on CD in my car these days.

6. My favorite accessory is - MY ENGAGEMENT RING....sorry, 2 weeks in, it still makes me smile EVERY time I look down. I hope I feel this way in 35 years as well.

7. My favorite thing about this week was - starting wedding planning. I have a love hate relationship with it.

Weekend roundup

B and I spent the weekend in D-Town again. His cousin gets married last month and his mom was putting on a shower for them. It was fun and as always great to see everyone.

Sunday we went to my parents house to start the wedding planning process. Apparently it is daunting...too many ideas, too much to think about. :) But...all wonderful.

Fill in the Blank Friday!

It is Fill in the Blank Friday again ... please link up here.

1. Today is a good day because - I am completely overjoyed and happy. I am living my own fairytale. I love it. I AM GOING TO BE A WIFE TO B!!!!!

2. The best thing I did all week was- Smile non stop. Sorry..there aren't many times in life that I will have this glow. I think smiling all week non stop is a great thing!

3. The current weather is - SUNNY and it makes me feel HAPPY.

4. The best thing about spring is LOVE IS IN THE AIR...ok really it is just sunny and lovely out. You can be OUTSIDE which in Htown doesn't happen without sweating buckets!

5. A fashion trend that I'm dying to try out for spring is  CORAL. I just bought a new coral dress and can't wait to wear it out.

6. A person who made me smile this week was B! I mean really...

7. The most delicious thing I ate all week was Snapper on Saturday night celebrating B's 30th bday and our engagement.

I promise NOT everything will be about how in love I am and how we are getting married...but I'm a week into this engagement thing and I am so overjoyed and excited. It will calm down eventually. ;)

On April 5, 2012 the love of my life proposed. I am 100% thrilled, overjoyed and in shock. I am truly living my own fairytale.  

I'm going to be a WIFE...and not to just my B!

I never would have imagined back when we were 21 and friends that years later we would start dating and now we are engaged. I cannot wait to be his wife.
