Our Engagement Story!

AHHHH!!! I still can't even begin to wrap my head around the fact that we are engaged! It was such a surprise and it couldn't have gone any better. We landed in Monterey California on Wednesday morning and after dropping our luggage off at the beach house, my family, B and I headed to Big Sur California to go hike at Pfeifer Falls. It was about a 45 minute drive and looking back I don't know how he stayed so calm with the ring in his pocket! We got there and hiked for a while before we found the waterfall. The area where he actually popped the question was roped off and you weren't supposed to go up there but he insisted I went with him, so I figured what the heck. When we got up there I turned my back to him to step up on a rock so that we could take a picture and when I turned back around he was down on his knee. It took a minute for me to realize what was going on, but once I did I freaked and started crying like a baby. The best part was that my family was in the distance and were able to get some awesome pictures!







We are going on a celebratory trip to Southern California where I'm from to relax and hangout with two of my best friends, and then when we get back we'll start thinking about the million things we need to do to plan a wedding! Crazy! Here are a couple more pictures from our vacation.... 




And then of course there is the ring! It has been requested of B that I don't post a photo... yet. He had my band and halo custom designed and it hasn't come in yet! 2 weeks until I get it, I'm so excited!

  9. I bet whichever dress you pick will make your guns pop. To me, the best accessories for a woman's attire are her sculpted guns, shoulders, and legs. AND abs for those dedicated enough to posses them. Congrats. I have a feeling you will have and awesome clean menu for your reception; possibly leading to some new recipes for the rest of us. :)
