Sorry to disappoint, but I am not engaged. One of my good friends from work got engaged this past weekend!
I am so happy or her! And her ring is GORGEOUS! And her finance is so good to her! She is going to be such a BEAUTIFUL bride! So here comes the question that has been on your mind since you opened this post. "How did he do it?" Well I am so glad you asked! He did it by HIRING A FLASH MOB. (Seriously? I mean some girls get all the luck right?)
But as awesome as my friend getting engaged is, its not what I wanted to talk about today. Its fixing to get real deep in HERRREEE. I love the idea of awesome engagements. I mean who doesn't want a proposal that makes other people cry their eyes out. I mean I have visited several sites that are just proposals. (I did this A LOT when Aaron was away doing Army duties.)
Today I think there is SO much pressure on the guy to plan the PERFECT proposal. Granted I would love to be proposed to with a flash mob in Disney World with all my friends and family hiding with a secret photographer that's also taking a video and there to be fireworks in our honor and get to stay in the Cinderella castle (I dream big... #SorryImNotSorry). I think that this is such a special time to a girl, one that she has dreamed about for years. So I get it, "How he did it" is EXTREMELY important. Or is it? Honestly, if Aaron asked me to marry him...virtually anywhere under any circumstance...I would. And you might be wondering "OMG. You would say Yes to someone who didn't care how he proposed?" And my answer to you is HECK YES I WOULD. Again, you may be wondering why?
Well I think that (again as much as I want an awesome proposal) its not the proposal that counts. Its the actual marriage (or upcoming marriage) that counts. If you truly love the person that is proposing to you, why does it have to be some huge, grand gesture? So yes. I think that the proposal should be special but I would say yes to the man I love with all my heart no matter the proposal.
I AM IN NO WAY INSULTING YOUR PROPOSAL IF IT WAS AWESOME AND I AM NOT ENCOURAGING GUYS TO HALF BUTT PROPOSALS EITHER. But just stating my opinion! :)
So If you are engaged or married, how did he do it? I am curious! :) Happy Wednesday!
