Adam & I are engaged!!!!!
Most of you probably already know this by now though :)
Needless to say, I am still in shock! Granted, I did know there was a ring, the way that Adam proposed was a total surprise! Here's how it all went down......(!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
About a month ago Adam and I went to look at rings in Sarasota and Venice. After a week or so we found a ring that I l-o-v-e-d! We already had a diamond to use. My Grandmother, Jane, gave me a 1 ct round diamond ring for high school graduation. It was her engagement ring from my Grandfather, Tom, who died when I was younger ( I loooooved him so much). So, we found a setting that looked great with my diamond and I told Adam that I wanted to stop looking because I wanted that one.
After that, I was just so totally for sure that Adam was going to ask me to marry him before I left Florida. I was there for a month so of course I was on pins & needles the entire time. It got really bad because we would be going somewhere stupid and I would feel like I needed to get dressed up because "OH MY GOSH what if he's going to propose:?!?!" Ladies..do you hear me???? :)
But, that never happened! My Mom flew down to FL on Friday after Thanksgiving because we were leaving Saturday morning. Friday night we had dinner plans at our favorite restaurant, with Adams mom, dad, and sister. Sounds like the perfect time to propose right?!?!? Yeah, that's exactly what I was thinking. Uhhhh not quite. So by this point I am getting pretty ticked off. I was about to go bat sh*t crazy on someone..anyone..but that also never happened. Thank goodness.
So we go home and get ready for bed..I am totally not talking to Adam at this point and I really didn't plan on it. The next morning he got up early to go to a "baseball scrimmage" at IMG. I didn't even tell him bye..I just said "LEAVVVVVVVVVE!!!!" I know, I can be so charming and sweet sometimes...
He leaves, then my mom and I load up my car and leave about 35 minutes later. What would normally take us 10 hours to drive home took us 13 hours thanks to game day traffic in Gainesville, FL and Atlanta, GA. Perfect. Oh, I should probably add, the whole 13 hour drive home, I didn't call Adam, and I had already told myself that I was not going to answer his phone calls. I know, I'm so mature. He ended up not calling me either, so I told my mom that he was probably just scared to call and hear what I had to say. I don't blame him. Ok anywho, we get home and we all (my mom and step dad) start unloading my car. I am carrying about 300 bags and I walk back to my room, open up my door, and Lord have mercy
Adam is in my freaking room!!!!!!!!!!!!
There are roses and rose petals everywhere, a billion candles shaped into a big heart, and he is kneeling down on one knee!!! Holy cow..I am dead. It's pretty much all a blur from there, which I feel is what normally happens. When he started talking to me and telling me that "He knows he wants to spend his life with me" and all of that mushy stuff all I could do was scream (mixed in with a few tears) "I WAS SO MAD AT YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
About 10 minutes later Adam said,"Soooo..did you say 'yes'??"
I had a lot of phone calls to make after that and I think I might have slept for 2 hours. He woke up the next morning to drive back to FL :(
I am still in shock and don't even know where to begin the planning! It seemed way more fun planning it in my head before we were engaged.
Alrighty..there ya go! I will leave you with some pictures of the ring!! You might want to put on some sunglasses because it's bling blingin'!!!!!
