Wardrobe Wednesday: Put a ring on it.

On Monday, Corey played hooky and stayed home with me. We ran some errands and ate Moe's outside since it was over 70 degrees. Later we walked down to the lake to snap some outfit pictures. This was my first time having him take pictures of me, and this is about the only one where I don't look super stiff! Too bad my dress is all bunched up!

After taking a bunch of weird pictures, he asked if I would take a picture with both of us. Of course I said yes, but it came out really dark so I wanted to take another. Fortunately I did, because as the timer was going off he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! Of course I said yes.

(In the first picture you can see his hand in his pocket, where he got too nervous!)

I sort of knew this was coming, but I had no idea when! After eating Moe's, I was super full and feeling lazy so I didn't really feel like taking pictures anymore. He kept insisting and saying we didn't have any time later in the week, and asked probably 10 times throughout the day when and where we were going to take them. I honestly didn't catch on at all, probably because I had my own nerves of him taking pictures of me!

Since we first started dating, my life has done a 180 and we are in such a wonderful place. I'm super excited to see what the future holds, and I wouldn't want anyone else's hand to hold along the way.

Dress: vintage

  1. Congratulations! It's so cute that you have a picture of the moment.

    Isn't it funny how we never seem to pick up on when IT is coming? My husband proposed to me on *his* birthday because he thought it would be more of a surprise. It sure was!

    1. Thank you! He was all worried about not coming up with something creative enough, but as someone who cherishes pictures I think the idea was perfect. Wow, that is surprising, haha! I suppose he had a great birthday then. :)

  2. ah! amazing! that's so sweet!!! aint you pretty as well :)
