The rest of the story in a somewhat Wordless Wednesday (anyone remember the last time I did one of those? Me neither).
Because I missed it last time, here is the most awesome picture of the large pizza the fiance (!!!) and I finished off at Grimaldi’s.
And now? Our engagement weekend in pictures.
And then possibly the best part. When we got home, he took me to the place where we had our first date, Ted Drewes. Waiting for us were friends and family ready to celebrate our brand new engagement.
This part was supposed to be a surprise as well, but my sister Melissa kind of spilled the beans before I was even off the plane. Granted, this is a good thing as if it had been a surprise, I would have burst into tears when I got there, and no one would have gotten a word out of me for an hour.
Emotion + exhaustion + excitement + THAT surprise = Ann’s meltdown.
We’re going to ignore that there were moments of meltdown, like when our friends from Springfield (3 hours away) walked up. Like hugging my best friend and nearly asking her to be my maid of honor right then and there (I did wait to ask….for a day). Like showing the video clip of the actual proposal to my mom and future mother in law.
Best. Weekend. Ever.
Love, love, love this!
Lordy lady, these posts make me so ridiculously happy for you. We’ve come a long way in 3-4 years. 🙂
No kidding! And thank you. 🙂
Technically, I didn’t cry! Only his mother did. 🙂
I never even referenced anyone else crying. Only me. 😛
Well, “tears” implies crying. 🙂
So much awesome! I LOVE IT!
But, your Mr had better put on the smiles – and I mean real, TOOTHY smiles, for the wedding pictures!
