So guess what?!
I'm engaged!!! Oh mother of all that is holy, it is AMA-zing! My beautiful fiance popped the proverbial question yesterday (14th February 2010) around 20:00.
I'm sure we have all had a fair share of engagement stories, but because this is mine, as well as my very own blog, I've decided to care and share...
So V-day started off as any other, the mutual exchange of chocolates, and kisses. The only difference from a normal Valentines was that Craigsters had organised a surprise for the day. I was to cancel my horse riding lesson with Jessicas and everything.
So bright and early (for a Sunday at least) we woke up, piled into the car and set off. To an unknown destination. Until, I begin to see the Magalies mountains and the dam...
Turns out Craigy planned a whole day for us at the resort where we first met on holiday- more than seven years back- Magalies Park.
The day was so much fun... we rode bicycles, went on a paddle boat, swam, ate, laughed, and had an all-round fun time.
But the day eventually came and went, and we left, coming home around 18:00. We then decided (not so much a decision as a suggestion heavily supported by him) to go to the restaurant where we had our very first date- Mugg and Bean in Menlyn.
Now this might seem cheesy; being proposed to in a Mugg and Bean (you know, it's so much more "romantic" at a quaint little place, mostly Italian or the sort) but it was really special.
We ordered a Nacho's to share (as we were still quite full from all the eating during the day).
Afterwards deciding to order a Lemon Meringue to share.
At this time Craig had to go to the 'bath room'.
Shortly after he came back, the Lemon Meringue arrived, along with a box..... WITH MY RING INSIDE!
Oh goodness, I was so shy... there seemed to be so many people around- The time between Craig getting on his knee, and us leaving the restaurant was a complete blur, I just remember wanting to cry but not being able to, shaking like a leaf, and saying 'Are you sure Craigy!?'.
So anyway, to cut what seems to be a long story short, I am officially engaged to the man that makes me happier than anything in the world, and i'm loving it!
