He did it!!! He Popped the question....

Nov 17, 2008 - 23 comments

I'm in serious denial right now = D... Can this really be true...

Last Night I came home from work ( i worked 3-11)  And I was soo soo tired.. I walked in my front door and all of the lights were out. I tried to flip the switch for the lights and no go.. I round the corner into my kitchen and I see all of these candles lit ( no biggie I was thinking Matt lit them because of the no power) so I lazyily throw my things on the floor and start to climb the stairs.. and I see more candles lit on the stairway.. ( still no thinking anything of it)  I make my way of the stairs and go towards my bedroom. I open up the door and there on the floor are pink and white rose petals layed out in the shape of a heart and my baby girl Aubree sitting in the middle of them.. I was like WTF? ya know.. I said to Aubree "Daddy made a mess didn't he?"  She laughed ( shes only 5 months but i swear she laughed because what I was saying was true) and I go to pick her up and she is holding a little box in her hand.. I said " aubree what did you get into?" Then I heard a noise behind me and it was Matt ... he was kneeling in front of me.. and he said " So.. You want to do this?"   I was confused... he told me to open the box and so I did and there staring back at me is a beautiful engangement ring ( nothing real fancy but still beautiful) I dropped the box and screamed.. this caused Aubree to cry b/c I scared her.. so I bent down to pick up aubree and I was trying to calm her down and Matt still kneeling says " There is nothing more beautiful to me then you standing there, your hair a mess, holding our baby girl.. I want the rest of our lives to be just like this. I never want to spend a day apart from you.. Angela Renee Harlan will you give me the honor of being your husband?"  I was crying hysterically .. Aubree was crying... and of course I said YES!!!!  

He had planned the whole thing.. he cut off the power .. lit all the candles... positioned Aubree in the middle of the petals... he did everything.. I was soo surprised.  I just couldn't have asked for a better proposal and the fact that he included Aubree in it made it even more special.. so as of November 16th, 2008 I am ENGAGED!!!!!!  ( the same day one year ago that I got my BFP)  I still feel like I am living in a dream...

We are gonna get married on October 18th, 2009 = D

What a thoughtful and romantic man!! Enjoy it now. Once you get married, they forget how to do all that stuff, lol. (just kidding, every once in a while they can still pull it out) Congrats!

Thanks Ladies... This last year has been like a roller coaster lots of ups and downs.. but we seem to have got it to level off and things are going really well for us .. i think thats what he was waiting for.. for things to settle down before he popped the question..  

sk123 I have already started... Last night I stayed up half the night researching ideas on the web... :o) and now I have to drag my butt to work at 9
