I know, I have not been very good (okay, thats an understatement) about updating my blog with personal events, I guess that was never the point of my blog. But I feel like I wanted to share this big moment with all of my readers, especially as you have been following along since the beginning in 2009.
I am engaged!
If you follow me on Instagram and Twitter, you already know this of course, but I wanted to do a more in-depth post. I wanted to share a bit of the proposal and some photos, and of course, the first thing everyone wants to see is the ring!



I wasn't feeling well last Friday, a combination of being exhausted, allergies (these are new this year... great!) and a cold. We were supposed to have a "date night" at my favorite restaurant ever, Mr Chows. Being ill, my boyfriend at the time (now Fiance... weird to say that), decided he would bring my favorite food to me and we ordered in.

The dinner was normal and just as usual (although, I should have known something was up as Adam, was dripping sweat throughout our dinner). Desert is always something I love, well I just need something sweet at the end of a meal. Always. So as usual, right on cue, I reached for the fortune cookie. Adam mentioned whatever numbers were in the cookie, we should play the lotto with.

I grabbed the cookie and opened it, first thing I saw was a bunch of ???, then the rest slowly came into my vision, the first words out of my mouth were "What the F"? I couldn't believe it, I was BLOWN away and I turned around and he was on his knee.

I was speechless, I couldn't speak for 20 minutes. I kept saying I don't believe this.

Personally, for me, this was the IDEAL way he could have proposed, Adam knows, I hate when people are staring at me, and I am such a homebody, that this proposal really took into account my personality traits and wants. I was just beyond surpised and thrilled.


Out that Saturday night celebrating with a friend (This is not my Fiance)You can see how sparkly the ring is...

Now, what you are all waiting for... the ring!

A quick note about the ring, I never thought I was a "pear" girl, I actually never even liked pears at ALL. I always thought I wanted a cushion or emerald ring. Adam and I looked a bit together a while ago, like 6 or months ago. We tried cushions, but after all of the looking I realized I had no idea what I wanted, I couldnt even fully commit to a cushion. There are things I didnt like about it (very trendy and everyone has it now) and every cut of a stone I looked at there was something about. Anyway, I am so thrilled with this ring, and every time I look at it I love it more and more. Just goes to show, sometimes its good to let yourself be surprised and have your boufriend not listen to you. I am very happen that he didnt listen to me this one time (I doubt I will ever say that line again).

This ring has a very special meaning and that give it so much more weight and meaning to me.

And that's it and now the craziness commences with booking a venue.
We are thinking Sept/Oct/ November 2014 on either Long Island, Westchester, Hudson Valley or Connecticut.
