Kait's Engagement

Finally in the swing of things, which means..
I'll be back with my own blog posts!

But I'm thinking this particular engagement story is just the way to end my week of engagements.
Read and you'll see what I mean.
I'm so excited to introduce this next girly and her adorable engagement story!!

 I am so excited Kaitlin is letting me guest post today, because after coming down off the high of my engagement, I realized we were proposed to on the very same night! How fun?!

You know, that moment you've waiting your whole life for?
Well mine came to me in my bathroom.

Hold up, what?
Let's back up a little bit, shall we?

I'm Kait and my fiance is Dane. I blog over at GridIron Lipstick and Dane and I actually met through the US Postal Service. I kid you not, you can read more about that here. We also foster a 5,000+ mile long distance relationship. Yes, it's as awful as it sounds, but we make the best of it AND vacationing in Hawaii isn't so bad ;)

So now that you're up-to-speed. Dane was home for Christmas for three weeks..imagine my excitement! Being a normal couple for almost a month was nothing short of amazing, but the day before he left I was feeling pretty bummed.

I worked a normal day and, at Dane's suggestions, we were going to our favorite Thai restaurant for dinner AND a cute frozen yogurt place for dessert.

So he tells me he will pick me up at 6PM and at 6:15 he was no where to be found and I was 4 seconds shy of gnawing off my forearm. Needless to say I was waiting at the door, coat on, purse in hand.

At 6:30 one very flustered Dane rolls into my house and I'm fit to be tied, because how can you be mad at this face?

He's yammering on and on to my parents and all I want to do is say CUT TO THE CHASE, I'M STARVING! So he dashes up the stairs exclaiming he's got something on his face that he needs me to examine under the light in the bathroom.

Uhhh, are you kidding me?

So I stomp up the stairs after him and as I round the corner I hear him turning on the shower.

What the heck?

As I walk into the bathroom he hits play on his phone and "You Are The Best Thing" by Ray LaMontagne started playing and he said "I know you probably expected me to propose in Niagara Falls (we had just been there for New Year's Eve), but the truth is...I've been falling for you ever since the day I met you. There are three things in my life that are important--life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness...and ever since I've been pursuing you, you've made me the happiest man alive..."

CAN YOU SAY SWOON? And before you ask, no I didn't cry. I'm not a crier.

Except for right after I accepted THE MOST BEAUTIFUL RING ever created (I MIGHT be a little biased), Dane told me we actually had reservations at one of the nicest restaurants in town AND he had changed his flight reservation from Friday to Saturday.

So then I cried. The ugly, happy, over-the-moon-fill-your-entire-body-with-happiness cry.

And I haven't stopped smiling since.
