The Forgotten Post

You know when you happen to come upon your past posts and find a few (okay, a lot) of posts that you started (some even finished) and you never published them? Yeah, that's me today. So, here we go with the past posts that fell to the wayside! I'll stagger them over the next week so you can get a daily fix of my blogging :)

If you're on facebook, (or communicate with me in some way other than my blog) then you probably already know. But for those who haven't heard (and need to be obsessed with my life just a wee bit more) I'M ENGAGED!!!!!!!! :)

Instead of scarring you with a picture of my hideous fingers, I'll just show you my ring instead. No, it's not pink, or colored in any way. I just get a little saturation happy in photoshop :) Behold, my amazing, gorgeous emerald cut ring (That I Absolutely ♥ LOVE ♥)



But, of course with changes in life comes stress, family issues, wedding planning and other fun things....


But life is WONDERFUL and I'm so much in love and couldn't care less about anything right now. I'm twitterpated for Steven and always will be.


And of course, nothing is legit until it's on facebook. I should have disabled my email and text notifications before changing my relationship status though. Quite the bombardment. But again, loving every second of being engaged!


Notice how all the ads magically turned to wedding ads? Yeah facebook "knows" you. (Big brother anyone?)



Steven and I just "get" each other. We have an interesting (sometimes overly cynical & morbid) relationship with each other.


Christmas Eve at his family's party he pulled me to an empty room, started telling me how much he loved me, then I in turn (not realizing he was preparing to propose) started saying how I was still hungry, needed a drink and was feeling claustrophobic with all the people around in a hot room (way to kill the mood, right?). Then all of a sudden he gets down on one knee, and I froze.

I can't remember exactly what he said, but it was along the lines of "Rebecca will you marry me?" to which I replied by almost knocking him over with a forceful hug and started giggling like an absolute retard. Seriously, it was like I was on drugs or something. I'm just not a "giggle" type of person, and I was G.I.G.G.L.I.N.G. Defined as: "To laugh with repeated short, spasmodic sounds", yeah that pretty much sums it up.

I didn't even give him an answer. Finally he said, "So does that mean yes?" because I was two busy processing that I was actually just proposed to by the love of my life, which apparently makes my brain turn to mush and makes me go into "act-like-a-fool-and-start-laughing" mode.

After I sat down and composed myself and started drooling over my ring, we went into the room with his family and told everyone we just got engaged which was followed by tons and TONS of picture taking by his family. Which I love, because you know me and pictures :) Then we went off to my house later and told my family. I think Rachel screamed with excitement if I remember right.

That night I think I stayed up until 5am (partially because I was wrapping gifts :s ) taking pictures of my ring. All in all, I had an AWESOME Christmas last year.


And so begins the new chapter of my life that I've been waiting for. Wedding/Marriage planning and prep! I cannot wait for the future and to be married to Steven. Who else knows exactly what to say to make me melt?

Congrats again on the engagement! I definitely laughed out loud just picturing your reaction to him asking you to marry him. That is so awesome!
