Hello lovelies!

I realized that I never posted our engagement story, so here it is! <3

January 10th, 2015 we were celebrating our 6 month anniversary. We had decided to go to Cheesecake Factory for our date.

T told me to dress up, and I kind of felt like something was going to happen.. I basically spent the day talking myself out of it because I didn't know if he even wanted to marry me at this point.

We went up to Cheesecake Factory, and there was a 70 minute wait. We had fun just walking around the mall. We finally got to eat and it was SO good. I had never eaten there before and it was pretty fantastic. We had a great night just eating yummy food and talking.

We had also made plans to go feed the ducks at my favorite park. We drove down to my favorite park and just had a great time talking on the way down there. It was cold and dark and I joked that there wasn't going to be any ducks, and that they had all flown away.

We went the park and got all ready to feed the ducks. I noticed that this little pavillion (I don't know what else to call it..) was covered in Christmas lights. It was so pretty. T suggested we go check it out. I got really nervous and started walking reaallly slow. We got up to it and saw that there was rose petals leading the way to the single table under the pavilion. On the table there was a red table cloth with a lace over lay. On top of the table cloth, there was a lot of little tealight candles. In the middle of the table was a BIG gift back that said "Life is a special occasion.."

T had to convince me that the bag was for me--to celebrate our 6 months together. Inside the bag, there was a big heavy box wrapped in Mickey Mouse Christmas wrapping paper. Inside that box, was a smaller box, tons of candy, a DVD we had been wanting to watch, a note, and the new Into the Woods movie soundtrack. Sound perfect so far? Just wait.. It gets better.. In the next box was another box and more candy, another note, sugar cookie scented tealight candles, and some Tinkerbell stickers. In the next box was MORE candy!!, a note!, and a smaller box. By this point, I am shaking.. and I am taking soo long to open everything! I open the last and smallest of the boxes, and there is a ring box tied with a ribbon. After finally getting the ribbon off, there is another note. When I turn the note over it said, "Erica, will you marry me?"

I turned around and T was down on his knee. I definitely cried and said YES!!

Good thing we had awesome people hiding under a tree so we have documentation of this awesome proposal! It was PERFECT. I honestly am the luckiest girl in the whole world. T is such a sweetheart and I am so happy that I get to spend the rest of eternity with my best friend.
