Something super exciting happened this Valentine’s weekend.
I got engaged!!!
It was unexpected, but deep down I was secretly hoping that it might happen. The thing is that we had talked about it and had agreed that we were going to wait to get engaged until we were a little bit more settled down financially, but of course that was all part of his distraction plan. Sneaky. And well played.
Let me fill you in a little. I’ve mentioned some of this in my previous posts, but it doesn’t hurt to recap. We met on eHarmony and dated for 3 weeks before he asked me to be his girlfriend on Valentine’s Day 2015. So this Valentine’s Day 2016 was our 1 year anniversary! We decided to celebrate on the 13th because we wanted to spend the day with our boys on Sunday (14th).
Anyways, so on Saturday (13th), we went down to San Diego in La Jolla and had dinner at this sushi restaurant called Sushi on the Rocks. It was pretty delicious!! Then after, he wanted to go down to the beach, but of course I forgot my jacket! So we took a little detour to buy me a pullover at a Quiksilver near by (which if I may add, ruined my outfit a little, but it’s all good). Then we walked down to the shore and he showed me where the seals usually gather, but we were out of luck and didn’t get to see any, at least not right away! Anyways, it was a super nice spot, it was so calm and even though the waves were huge, their crashing sound was soothing and relaxing. We found a little gazebo that overlooked the ocean and we were just hugging and watching the waves enjoying each others company. As I was hugging him, I took a moment to pray inside my head and thank God for the wonderful man that he had brought into my life and for allowing us such a wonderful year together. Then as soon as I finish praying, Matt (my boyfriend) mentions that he had never brought anyone there and that he wanted to share this place with me because he used to go there to just get away sometimes or to just to go pray. And I of course was AWW!! with big googly eyes. Then he continues to say that there was another reason why he had brought me there and he gets down on one knee and I am going into shock here! Then he takes out the ring and he says “Nancy, will you be my wife?” and I am crying at this point (gracefully if I may add) and I am just nodding my head and finally I was able to utter “yes”.
Then we were just hugging and kissing and saying “I love you!” to each other over and over again! Because we’re cute like that!
I am so beyond happy and over the moon!! I am going to marry the man of my dreams!
P.S. Pardon our eyes, that flash was too bright!! We couldn’t keep our eyes open!
