Would you believe me if I told you I have not been able to get to my computer because it has been covered with wedding "stuff"? Honest. I have just gotten around to clearing things up. I'm going to try to do my best at not getting so behind on blogging!
So, I've made you wait long enough. Here is my love story...
I was planning on going back home to visit my parents for my dad's birthday. My mom calls me Thursday night to ask if I could come home Friday after work instead of Saturday because she won tickets at work for a behind-the-scenes tour of Epcot on segways. Okay! Sure! Sounds fun. Meanwhile, B said he had a lot of studying to do and really wishes he could come, but he'll keep the puppy. So, Friday after work, I had dinner with B, then was off for a two-hour drive back home. Saturday morning, my parents and I headed out to Epcot and I was really excited about the tour. We were to meet a man named Pete at 10:30a.m. who was going to take us to the segway tour guide. He drove us behind Epcot to Italy, where apparently the start of the tour was. At this point, the park wasn't open to the public yet. Pete was talking to us the whole time, asking us if we've ever been on segways before.
He leads us to Italy, where there's a bridge over water with a gondola. It's all really pretty. He tells us the tour guide should be here any minute. I'm anxious so I'm looking around and instead, what do I see….???
Blake. Coming out from behind a building.
And the look on my face was…
"Babe… what are you doing here?"
Even when I first saw him I honestly didn't suspect anything. But once he came up to me and grabbed both of my hands, all I could hear in.my.head. was, "Oh my God, Oh my God, is this really happening right now?"
The rest was all kind of a blur… I had to ask him later what he said to me. I was just in shock!
What would an engagement be without some water-works?
So happy and surprised! And in love!
After I said YES! I asked him what he did with the puppy! (lol) And when a Disney photographer was taking our pictures, I asked my mom, "Aren't we going to be late for the segway tour?" She grins and politely says, "There's no tour." Clearly, I was oblivious.
What was really special about the whole day was our parents were there to share our joyous occasion--something I told B a long time ago I'd really like. We spent the whole rest of the day (12 hours!) at Epcot.
Gotta show off the bling ring…
Our engagement was truly memorable and oh-so-special! I never thought B would be able to pull off a surprise like this… I'm too nosey! =P

What a blessed day.
