This trip was the best trip I've ever been on, because we GOT ENGAGED!!! He proposed right after midnight on Thursday night/Friday morning. He wanted to do it at that time, because it was exactly 4 years, and 9 months of dating. (Novemeber 2 is our dating anniversary.) He did it when we were walking along the beach, on our way back to our hotel. It definetly took me by surprise! I was expecting he would propose sometime soon. But, I really didn't know when. I'm VERY happy!
It stills seem surreal though. It sounds so grown up- to say: "I'm engaged! I have a fiance." Ha. It'll take some getting used to. But, I love telling people about it! Since it happened so late at night, I didn't want to call and wake up my parents, sister, or friends. I was itching to call them though, ha.
I called my mom first on Friday morning. (My parents were on vacation in Boston at the time.) My dad wasn't close by her though, so then I had to call up my dad. Then I waited until when I thought my sister and best friend would be on their lunch breaks at work, which I guessed right, and reached them both on their breaks. My sister was the one who was most excited! She was screaming and crying. It was cute, ha.
I wanted to wait until I told the most important people to me about it, and also until Bob reached his family and told them, until I posted it on Facebook. So, by yesterday evening I had reached almost all the people I wanted to tell via phone. I have another friend I will call soon and tell, but she doesn't use Facebook ha, so there's no threat of her finding out online before I call.
The ring is so unique looking. I've never seen a ring like this before! I love it, and think it's beautiful. A lot of people have been saying how unique it is. He said that's why he picked it out for me, since he knows I love unique items! :)
So, that's why my first outfit blog post since vacation is going to show pictures of the ring!
I'm wearing a maxi dress in the pictures below. I've never bought one before, or ever even tried one on! I always thought that they wouldn't right on me, because of my body type. But, I thought this one looked decent! And I had to snap it up, because of the rainbow colours! I couldn't resist, ha.
Sometimes I find such great items at Marshall's. It's Calvin Klein brand, and usually that brand fits me well, and is flattering on me. I wore it both with the thick black belt, and also without. I like it both ways.
The rainbow shown below, we saw on our last night of the trip. (Friday night.) It was so beautiful! I almost never see rainbows. But, then on our drive up yesterday, while we were in Delaware, I spotted another rainbow!!! I couldn't believe it- two rainbow sightings within 24 hours. I took it as a sign. :)
