Well…it has been six months since this happened, and I should probably get around to blogging about it!
On April 21, 2017 J and I got engaged! He proposed at one of our favorite spots on my college campus and his best friend got the whole thing on camera.
J came up to visit for the weekend–it was the weekend for the Blue & White football game at Penn State. He took Friday off for his birthday and ended up getting himself the best gift of all…a fiancé haha! But he picked me up at my dorm and then we went to got meet up with his best friend and his girlfriend. I will forever be so grateful to the both of them for capturing this special moment and sharing it with us.
We went and took a walk and when we got the our favorite spot J asked me if I wanted some m&ms and took out blue and white ones. Now, if I was smart I would’ve noticed something was up, but as I was looking at the m&ms and reading what was written on them, J got on one knee and my heart started racing.
He spoke to me, wonderful things, but that’s for me to know 😉 and ultimately he asked me to marry him and of course I said YES!
We walked around as I called various family members who weren’t at all shocked! Apparently both of our families knew that this was going to happen and many of my friends did as well. Shoutout to you all for keeping such a good surprise!
The next day was the football game and our parents had set up an engagement party tailgate. It was just a sweet continuation of the best days of my life.
We were able to go back to Penn State this weekend and watch our Nittany Lions crush the Michigan Wolverines. It was so special to be up there on the anniversary of our engagement.
