tim and i got engaged yesterday!

tim and i are both very excited and spent the whole day with family and calling people on the phone.

the not-so short story:

tim and i were supposed to go over to our new apartment (we’re moving next weekend!) at 10am on saturday to meet delivery people for our new mattress/bedroom set.  tim faked a phone call from the furniture people to say they’d be early and we needed to get there at 9:30.  so, we went to the apartment at 9:30am.

tim opened the door and on the wall were 50+ pics of us, in a line, that was basically a timeline of our relationship.

first picture of the timeline... we met on okcupid.

he had a whole narrative about our relationship… so cute.

at the end, he got on one knee and asked me to marry him.  i actually don’t remember this.  i totally emotionally-blacked-out once he got on one knee.

i had tears in my eyes, he had tears in his eyes.

i said “can i wear the ring?!” (in retrospect, i should have said ‘yes’  oops)

i looked over and he had put rose petals on the ground, and a table set up with a camera (he borrowed our current roommates), an empty frame (for us to put an engagement pic at a later date) champagne, glasses, and a dozen red roses.

nothing says 'proposal' like 10am champagne! (and red roses)


i then proceeded to freak out.

the furniture men came in the midst of me calling family/friends.  i’m sure they still think i’m nuts.

my cousins got on facebook immediately after they found out to say ‘congrats’ so i had to start texting friends instead of calling them so good friends wouldn’t find out via the internet!  sorry friends, better texted than not informed at all!

my mom came shortly after.  we re-enacted the proposal for her and then went out to brunch.

re-enactment! i have no idea what i did with my hands when tim actually proposed.

i’m still in shock.

i can honestly say i’ve never been happier (or more in love) in my entire life.  ::cue sappy music::
