Is she or isn't she?
First of all, I have to say that you guys cracked me up with your comments yesterday, and I definitely needed that after a long work week. Secondly, I have to say that I was almost thinking about not doing a April Fool's Day prank this year. After what I wrote two years ago and then last year, I wasn't quite sure what there was left to write about. Now on to the post...
For those of you who were asking for photographic evidence, I give you the temporary ring C proposed with. I "forgot" to post a photo of it on purpose, just to throw you guys off. Cuz I'm sneaky like that.And here's the ring I designed for myself and had made in the US. It has a fourth band of diamonds that will go across the top after the wedding:And here's the two of us at the engagement party my co-workers threw for us on St Patrick's day (hence the festive headband):
And here's the champagne the flight crew gave to us:And lastly, here is a poor C in CDG, completely exhausted after lugging my dress (People, I have a dress!!) and the accessories that go with it across the Atlantic. I'm telling you guys, it was a b*tch to get that thing back here. Never again!Is that enough proof for y'all??
So yes, I am happy to announce that we really are engaged and C really did propose during my surprise boat trip. But it was the night before we went to the US, and then we had to come home and pack for our flight, so I didn't really have time to announce it to many people. Plus I wanted to tell my family first. And then once we were over there, things were so darn hectic that I didn't have time to write a proper post about it. And then I realized April Fool's Day was quickly approaching and that this would make a good story to double-cross y'all.
So voila, you have the truth! Now hopefully we really do live happily ever after... :)
