We're Engaged!!!






We went to dinner to celebrate his birthday and he asked me to marry him! I think I've told the story about 1,000 times now but I'll go for another:

We show up to Orchids at the Palm Court and were seated at a pretty awesome table overlooking the whole restaurant.  Every server that came to our table made sure they wished him a happy birthday.  We ordered the 5 course dinner and ate like kings.  It was time for dessert and they brought out just one plate.  The first thing that popped in my head was "Man, I don't want to share my dessert!"  The plate had a silver cover on it just like all of our other plates.  They put the plate down and pulled out the table.  At that point I had no idea what was going on.  They pulled the top off the plate and there was the ring. I was so busy looking at the ring I didn't even notice Drew on one knee next to me. I looked at him and said "Are you kidding me?!" Are you serious?!?!"  It was perfect.  Afterward he told me we had to stop in to show his mom really quick.  I was calling my dad, brother, and mom and no one would answer!  I was so upset.  We pull up to the resturant where his mom was and both of our families are in there waiting for us.  I just cried and hugged everyone.  HAPPIEST MOMENT OF MY LIFE.  After seeing everyone there we walked across the street to our favorite bar and ALL of our friends were there.  This kid....he had this planned out so well!  I was so impressed.  I seriously had no idea he was going to do this. 

I swear I fell in love with Drew all over again Saturday night.
