Mike and I became engaged on May 14th, exactly three weeks ago today. His proposal was beyond sweet. This is how it started a few days earlier:
Thursday, June 4, 2009
MJ: "Babe, if I wanted to look at all the pictures of us where would I find them at?"
Me: "They're on my laptop, you can look at them this weekend..."
MJ: "That's the only place that you have them?"
Me: "I don't know, how come you want to look at pictures so bad."
MJ: "Just cause, is your laptop the only place they're saved?"
Me: "No you can go to www.kodakgallery.com/myname and get them from there too."
MJ: "Awesome. Thanks. Love you. Bye."
Then I thought for a few seconds about how weird that exchange was and went back to work.
Then on Thursday before finals for my last semester of college, Mike came from home to work to his girlfriend who had hair back, PJs and no make-up on only to present me with a sweet little photo album that he made of Us. The sweetest thing ever. So there we are on the couch, just flipping through pictures of the last 5 years, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years (of course I kept trying to rearrange the pictures into chronological order) then the very last picture is one I've never seen before. A picture of a diamond ring.
Me: "Um, babe. I think you have someone else's picture."
MJ suddenly down on one knee: "I've loved you since I met you, and I want to spend the rest of my life loving you. Will you marry me?"
Me: "AHHHHH...wait, I don't have makeup on! Oh my God! Of course! Yes! Oh my God! Yes! Yes! Yes!"
Let the cuteness begin!
I must have thought about the day he would propose and fantasized a million and one ways how he would do it and where. Never ever did imagine anything so sweet. To top it off he totally threw me off by proposing on a Thursday night! Sneaky! I love it!!!
