Six Years Ago...

...Alan asked me to marry him!

I've written plenty about our wedding, but I don't think I've ever talked about our engagement.

I worked at Target when we first moved to Pennsylvania and it had been a long, long day in electronics and toys. I came home, exhausted, to flowers - something that almost never happens. I think in the entire time we've been together that I've received flowers from Alan maybe five times. He had told me that we would be engaged by the end of the year and that something would happen to make me think it would be then, but it would actually happen later.

I had this in mind when I came home that night and saw the flowers. I didn't think anything would happen that night, I thought it would happen on my birthday or Christmas or New Year's Eve, or some other day.

When Alan asked me to watch some movie with Bruce Willis in it after dinner, I thought I was right. Little did I know what he had planned. We were watching the "previews" and they were filled with some of my favorite scenes of my favorite movies. I still didn't get it, in fact I thought it was one of those Miramax watch our sappy films things. It wasn't until the words started flashing on the screen that I finally got it. 

 Of course I said yes! As I said at the time, I finally got my shiny doughnut :-)


  1. I know right? I still have the dvd, although the only ones I will let watch it besides A and I are the kids if they want to when they're older.

  2. He's smart! And hahahaa--shiny donut....

  3. Awwww, so cute! What a great way to ask!


I love comments so leave me some love!
